50 shades of Whey (Free on Amazon!)

First, let me post my disclaimer. I just downloaded this from Amazon and haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. However, I have looked at the reviews and the ones I've seen have all been positive. 50 shades of Whey is a book that seeks to shed light on the different types of Whey Protein and give clarity on the different forms of Whey currently on the market.

Currently, this book is free on Amazon and even if you don't have a kindle you can download the free kindle app either on your PC or mobile device.

Here is the link that I used.

Hope you enjoy! Remember, it's free so you don't have anything to lose.

Burn fat and loss weight for free with proven oldschool methods!

Everybody wants to reinvent the wheel! We think there is a secret to losing weight and burning fat but the truth is simple. Clean nutrition, hard work, and consistency will yield results. Sure fitness programs like Insanity work, but so do time tested exercises like Jumping rope, Jumping Jacks, and those good old fashion elementary school exercises we use to do way back when!

Jumping rope burns tons of calories and it also gives a great fullbody workout. You can vary the workout in limitless ways as well. My favorite is to jump for 45 seconds and rest for 25 seconds. I do this for atleast 25 minutes and by the end I am drenched in sweat! Change up how you jump for added variation and fun (high knees, running in place, criss cross, single leg, etc...)

Another great exercise for beginners is Jumping Jacks! These are simple and the intensity can be increased or simplified according to your fitness level. You can either do these for time or for sets of 100 like I do.

These are two GREAT and EFFECTIVE exercises you can use to jump start your fatloss routine.

With practice maybe you will be able to start doing these as well!!!

MSG, Death and life through your tongue!


Alzheimer's Disease
Lou Gehrig's Disease
Parkinson's Disease
This is not even a complete list but these are all things that have been linked to MonoSodium Glutamate better known as MSG. Sadly, MSG is an ingredient that is included in the majority of our foods. It's in everything from Soups to Potato Chips. And even if you argue that the amounts of MSG included in these foods are minimal, remember everything has a cumulative effect over time. So if the majority of the foods going into your system have MSG eventually your body isn't going to be able to get it out as fast as you are putting it in and that's when the problems begin. Dr. Mercola has done a good job of compiling information on this topic so I won't try to "remake the wheel" but I will invite you to take a look at his article. It won't take more than a few minutes and I believe it is worth your time. Also, I recommend watching Dr. Russell Blaylock and his talks on Excitotoxins! They can be found on youtube as well.

Here's the link to the article.

Diet Soda Increases the Risk of Diabetes.

So I wake up today and click on the internet. Yahoo had an article entitled"Study: Diet Soda Increase the Risk of Diabetes. Why Do We Still Drink This Stuff?" Now, I have never been a fan of diet drinks but this is just one more reason to avoid this mess.

The article claims that diet soda is tied to an increase risk of depression and obesity. The study shows that your body reacts to Aspartame much the same way it does to regular sugar. *Sidenote did you know that Aspartame use to be used in RAT POISON! Yes, RAT POISON so why would you want to put this into your system anyway. I'll do a separate article on Aspartame because this is definitely something you need to avoid. In the meantime, check out the article below.

Are you still doing p90x or insanity

This is something I have been curious about, after your first round of insanity or p90x, are you still pressing play? Do these dvds keep your attention or keep you motivated enough to keep coming back? I enjoyed both of these programs but just can't make myself complete another round for some reason. I might do a few days, maybe even a week but I just don't have the desire to stay with the program. So I was wondering, is it just me? OR do you feel like I feel? If so, what are you doing to stay active and stay fit in lieu of the dads? Thanks for watching!

The Best Protein on the Market (In my opinion!)

The BEST PROTEIN ON THE MARKET (In my opinion!)   Well, if your into working out, lifting weights, playing sports, etc... then you know how important it is to keep an adequate supply of protein in your body. Over the years, I have tried a bunch of different protein brands. There are Soy proteins, casein proteins, hemp proteins, whey proteins, whey proteins with creatine, etc... Personally, I prefer a good whey protein though but I hate most of the extra stuff that comes with it. That is why Blue Bonnet's Whey Protein Isolate is so special!       The Whey Protein Isolate by Bluebonnet is free of egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans! On top of that, it is made with stevia extract and not SUGAR or ASPARTAME or SUCRALOSE!!! This is almost unprecedented these days! Bluebonnet has gone out of their way to provide us with a great quality product. So here's my general review of the product:  
          The Good-   Great Ingredients! No artificial colors or sweetners! Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly! 26g of protein per scoop! Mixes well and taste pretty good too! Not treated with rBGH Variety of flavors (vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, mixed berry)        The Bad-      The cost! Varies from $26.00 to 36.00 for a 1lb container The cost! hmm, It would be awesome if their was creatine included but that's just wishful thinking...     Summary         This is a great product which I def recommend. I wish the cost could be a little lower but I understand that quality products cost more money so I don't have too much of a problem with that. Most of those other artificial sweetners have been linked to cancer and sugar is bad in its own right so I am pleased with the use of stevia here. Typically, I prefer to blend my protein with fruits and juice but I have drunk this with just water and it was still palatable. You can find this brand at most health food shops especially Wholefoods. Additionally, if you are interested in purchasing online, you can clink on my link "my amazon store" and it will take you straight to a vendor!
