Overcoming MS with Sustainable Nutrition – Jessica Philpot

We’ve posted once before about Jessica Philpot’s amazing weight loss progress and recovery from MS (Multiple Sclerosis). But her journey is truly phenomenal and is more than deserving of this update. One of the things we love about our nutrition program is the opportunity it gives people to change their lives forever. Sure, we’re always happy for clients when they reach their body composition and fitness goals, but when we get updates from our clients 2, 3, 4+ years later and they’re still making progress with their health, still enjoying the way they eat and haven’t reverted back to old habits. Well that fills us with more joy than you could possibly imagine.

The Female Perspective on Gaining Muscle – From Scrawny to Brawny

Coach Greg Glassman⁣ once said, “The greatest adaptation to CrossFit takes place between the ears.” I recently posted a transformation post on instagram, showing what my body looked like with an 8 lb. increase on the scale. I know what it’s like to be fixated with the number on the scale, it can really mess with your mind as we tend to believe that a heavier weight on the scale is indicative of body fat. Of course, that’s not always true (see 11 Ways the Scale Lies). Sometimes being heavier on the scale might be exactly what your body needs! Whether that’s for health reasons, to achieve a certain physique or perform better in activities and sports that you enjoy. Gaining muscle is a vital component of that and that will inevitably lead to weight gain at some point.

4 Top Tips for Transitioning off Keto without Gaining Weight

Ashley Gonzalez started her weight loss journey in January by kicking things off with the Ketogenic diet. Things were going well, until her weight loss came to a halt even though she still hadn’t reached her weight loss goals. If you’re no longer losing weight following Keto, or you’re finding it impossible to sustain, then it’s time to come off it. But that doesn’t mean you can immediately start eating bread again! Sorry. The reintroduction of carbohydrates to your diet should be done slowly so that you can successfully transition off Keto without gaining weight.

How to Lose Body Fat & Gain Muscle – Transformation

If you’re like most people out there, then you want to know THE secret to the burning question, “How do I lose body fat and gain muscle at the same time?!” Well, newsflash!!!

We know these two goals are seemingly contradictory: with fat loss you’re trying to decrease your body’s mass, while with gaining muscle you’re trying to do the opposite. But contrary to popular belief, it is possible to lose fat and put on muscle at the same time.

Nic Schilling – 6 Month Transformation

Nic once committed to training for an Ironman just so that he could get those much coveted 6-pack abs. To some of us that might sound crazy but I know in the past I’ve approached changing my physique with the same mindset. Excessive exercise was not the solution though. Sure both Nic and I were successful in dropping some pounds and our bodies looked better, but at the cost of a TON of time, aches and pains in our bodies and creating a terrible belief system in respect to our relationship with food. Like most people we eventually came to the realization that the abs weren’t worth it. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t another way. Read on to find out more about Nic’s quest to find those 6-pack abs without the Ironman effort or training!
