Preposterously Phenomenal Pumpkin Powered Provisions (Plus Pancakes)

Football season has officially started, the nights are getting slightly longer, and the world seems to be full of pumpkin flavored everything.  Shhh…I have a secret….I freaking love pumpkin.  

From Oreos, to Lattes, to beer, and more, pumpkin reminds us that it is time to put away the shorts, break out the jean jackets and prepare because winter is coming.

Put it In Reverse: A Reverse Diet Experiment

In a nutshell, a reverse diet is a protocol where you slowly add calories back into your diet after you have been in a long period of caloric restriction. 

Instead of dropping an atomic bomb of calories into your system and expanding like a mushroom cloud of fat and water retention post diet, a reverse diet Jedi mind tricks your body into accepting the increased calories.

Becoming the Batman

Almost 98% of my podcast guests answer my question of “what superhero would you be” by answering that they would be Batman.  It makes sense to be honest, a rich guy with cool toys who stands for justice and tries to right the wrongs of the city he loves.  Batman makes more sense then some dude who can only can be defeated by some rock that doesn’t exist naturally on Earth (suck it Superman).

No one should ever enslave themselves to foods they hate nor should you have to rip out your heart and sacrifice your sanity on the Altar of Dieting Doom.

The .82 Gram Protein Experiment (From Stay Puft to Buff)

Like the salmon of Capistrano at the tail end of my 2014 “winter bulk” fat was beginning to flock everywhere making me look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow man.  Getting to “Stay Puft” status meant it was time to start dieting and cutting.

No one should ever go broke while they are trying to get bigger or leaner.
