How to measure food without a scale

Tracking macros is hot right now, but admittedly, it can be a pain in the ass. Weighing out every bite of food is a tedious task, and for some people it leads to obsession and neurosis. Others get overwhelmed by the amount of detail required. Don’t get me wrong. Tracking is very effective if you […] Read more…

How to Deal with A Live-In Partner’s Eating Habits

healthyish dinner

Falling in love is one of the best feelings you’ll ever experience. There are butterflies in your stomach. There’s a spring in your step. There’s a gentle pitter-patter in your chest.   And as your love grows, oftentimes so does your waistline. Going out for dinner regularly and spending nights on the couch sharing a […] Read more…

Why meal plans don’t work and what to do instead

On the surface, meal plans seem like the solution to all our fat loss woes. They tell us exactly what to eat, how much of it and when. There’s no guessing involved; it’s all spelled out in black and white. And if there’s one thing people love, it’s being given the answer. But have you […] Read more…

A Day In The Life

So I decided to do this post not because my life is particularly interesting or exciting, but because I thought it would be helpful to show people how I practice moderation, especially when I’m on a cut. This was from Friday, Nov. 11 and I was actually a bit tighter with what I ate than […] Read more…

Not so fast: Is my metabolism making me fat?

When the scale won’t budge it’s easy to chalk it up to a slow metabolism. What about that guy who lives off doughnuts and never seems to gain a pound? He must have a fast metabolism, right? Well, not exactly. The answer is a little complicated, but the good news is that even if you […] Read more…

A review of my absense in photos.

Damn. It’s been a while.   Where to even start…   Oh yeah, the no sugar bet. David and I both made it through the week without ingesting any added sugar. (We were still eating fruit and dairy though.) We even withheld at a party that had these treats laid out before us, begging to […] Read more…

Day 2 – A new twist

I know I’ve extolled the virtues of being an unprejudiced eater, but even I have my aversions. One of which was unknown to me until last week. In my last batch of produce from the co-op, I received 3 persimmons. If you are as inexperienced with produce as I am, you may be asking yourself, […] Read more…

Day 1

A couple of weeks ago I bet David $100 that he couldn’t go a week without eating any added sugar. This was while he was in the depths of a pastry and candy binge fest that must’ve lasted at least a fortnight. Ashamed of himself (not really), he accepted. I was originally not participating in […] Read more…

Giving new meaning to bodyweight workouts

My man squats ME ass to grass! He also uses me as a human barbell. And this is why we’re together. In other news…got my co-op share today. Here are some crappy pictures of good produce. Let’s see what I come up with the next two weeks.     Read more…
