The key to create permanent results

We’re moving in a couple of weeks. Our new house is only 12 miles from our current abode, but it may as well be across the continent. Packing is the same regardless. I am not freaking out only because it’s not happening today. Inside, I’m dreading the process with the force of a thousand suns.…

How to lose weight without really trying

I’m a big believer in signs. Not big, blaring neon signs, although they have their place. I’m referring to the signs your life send you that tell you when you’re on the right track. Or about to derail into a ditch. Fir example… I moved from Connecticut to California about 18 years ago. I was…

5 Simplest weight loss tactics ever

Before I get into this embarrassing story, let me say upfront I’ve never been a techie person. I can upload videos on YouTube, write this blog on my site and perform enough basic functions to give the illusion I can handle modern life. That façade got blown out of the water this past week in…

 7 fitness & weight loss hacks no one tells you

I am a huge fan of scary movies — not gratuitously violent films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – but more of the Jurassic Park, Cloverfield and, more recently, the Lights Out, variety (if you haven’t seen it, and can afford to skip a night of sleep, it’s a “must see”).    It makes no…

5 Carbs that speed weight loss (seriously!)

As I’ve mentioned in prior posts, I worked in the food business for many years as a restaurant pastry chef and bakery owner.  I admit, I love the irony. More than once I’ve been accused of creating my own personal training clientele (see photo below). Honestly, it was not my original goal. But apparently it…
