Let’s talk about NEAT!
NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis.
It sounds complicated but it’s really not.
Basically, NEAT refers to the calories burned during activities that are not considered formal exercise (i.e., cleaning the house, walking the dog, taking the stairs,...

Brunch is probably one of my favorite weekend activities for several reasons. Mainly because it involves food (duh ) but also because it’s nice to try new places around San Diego since there are sooo many and also when I’m traveling to different cities. Another reason is that I tend...
A lot of people tend to underestimate the enormous value (yes, enormous..) when it comes to putting themselves first in certain aspects of their life.
We’re told selflessness is the key to happiness and doing good for others will make us feel the best inside.
This is of course...
Let’s face it, patience is hard and instant gratification is addicting...especially in today’s society.
With the technology and resources we have access to these days, it’s becoming harder and harder to remember what ‘being patient’ actually feels like.
Have you ever heard the phrase “what gets measured, gets managed?”
I’m sure you have...and I’m sure deep down you know that this applies to pretty much anything in life -- especially when it comes to money and food.
In this post, I’m not going to dive into the...
Alright, I think I can speak for everyone when I say that whoever invented the scale should be thrown in a ditch.
Am I right?... Or am I right? Haha

In the last post, I mentioned the importance of resistance training for changing your body composition.
If your ultimate goal is weight loss, I challenge you to think more about what that actually means.
Do you really just want to lose weight? Or do you want to lose body fat, look great in...
Whether your goal is weight loss, muscle and strength building, healthy aging, or just overall health...exercise and activity levels matter!
Do they matter more than your nutrition protocol? No.
Do they help you reach your goals faster, boost your mental well-being, and optimize your overall...
When I first started keto back in 2014, I suffered from what some call ‘fat phobia’ or the fear of eating fat.
I was hesitant to eat more fat and add fat to my meals (even the healthy ones) because I was still in the mindset that eating more fat equates to gaining body fat.
Up until about 5 years ago (before I started keto), the thought of waking up and not eating within 30 minutes never crossed my mind.
Most days this was because I was literally waking up with that hungry pit in my stomach that turned into nausea if I didn’t eat something right away.
“If you know what you should be doing...why don’t you just do it?”
“You have the knowledge..you know the process...just make it happen.”
“You help other people achieve this EXACT thing...why is it so hard to help yourself?”
These were the thoughts that...
