As the health and fitness sphere moves toward becoming less carb-phobic, many of us are recognizing our need (especially as athletes) to incorporate more carbs. At first, this may lead to sweet potato redundancy, because sweet potatoes have long been safely marked as “paleo.” But there are many, many other forms of starchy carbohydrate, and […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

This may be one of my all-time greatest creations. Or, I was just really in the mood for a non-junky creamy alfredo sauce. Either way, this healthy take on a classic comfort food is delectable, hearty, calorie-dense one-pot meal that’s nourishing for the body. It’s rich in healthy fats and fairly low-carb—the kelp noodles only have […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

I used My Fitness Pal (MFP) to log every single morsel I put in my mouth for three years, and absolutely loved it. After meticulously sticking to a macro ratio of very low carb, high fat, moderate protein while maximizing vitamins and minerals, I would proudly screenshot my food diary to share with health-conscious family […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

Although I created this recipe during summer (the store just happened to have fresh parsnips), the flavors and aroma scream fall time so bookmark this for the coming months.

I want to share that full interview with our LPC crew plus more on this topic of inflammation—it’s such a buzzword but is it such a serious matter? You bet. Inflammation is a big […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

Just a warning: This loaf will not last long in your house! This simple gluten-free banana bread recipe hits the spot, and it’s hard to tell it’s even gluten-free. There is nothing dry or chalky about this bread; it’s about as moist and flavorful as it gets. It’s also dairy free with no added sugar, […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

How about that featured photo for the article – a throwback to racing with some of my athletes at the Desert Triathlon back in 2011! Sports nutrition isn’t just the “fourth discipline” (as triathletes will put it), it is the top-priority discipline! I work closely with my endurance athletes on developing and individualizing their race […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more

“Restriction” and “dieting” go hand in hand, or maybe you’re not dieting per se but you’re a restrictive eater. Either way there’s a common theme: We’ll deprive ourselves to succeed in hard-to-reach (often unrealistic) goals, we’ll deny any and all cravings, we’ll swear off anything unhealthy and make “the right” disciplined choices instead.

An unfortunate side effect of being overly carb conscious or following a low-carb diet is fearing fruit. I was there at one point. I began to view fruit as just another of sugar bomb and avoided it most of the time. While overdoing it on fruit may indeed push your sugar consumption into excess and fruit […]To access this content, you must purchase Membership Subscription, or log in if you are a member. read more
