Though he hates the attention, one of the perks to being married to a professional brainiac is that we get to constantly discuss really awesome stuff–biochemistry, research, behavior, psychology, natural health, relationships, personal development, learning, growing, risking, improving.

I remember a few years ago when I was meeting with a potential competition client. During the initial session, she asked me if she had to give up ketchup and butter during the prep. I remember thinking how odd this was. NO, OF COURSE YOU CAN’T HAVE THOSE ON A COMPETITION PLAN! Lol.
But a …

If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me about losing their gut….well, I’d have at least $20 But seriously, it seems that for many people, losing lbs from their midsection is a lifelong battle, and no matter how much exercise they do, it’s the stubborn middle that remains.

After a few months of commitment to the Fat Loss Lifestyle, most of us begin to figure out what works for our unique metabolisms, schedules and preferences. However, just when we begin to think that we have it together something throws a wrench in the way of careful planning and our results …

At Metabolic Effect, we talk about the “Fat Loss Lifestyle” and we adopted it here at JillFit simply because in the long run, isn’t that really what we all want–a sustainable approach to exercise and nutrition that helps us stay healthy, fit, lean and happy? I know I do. In fact, it’s become my #1 …

It seems in the nutrition world you have the camp who says calories are the end-all-be-all of fat loss, and if you wanna lose, all you need is a caloric deficit, doesn’t matter what type of foods you eat nor what type of exercise so long as a deficit is created. Then there’s the camp …

I love burpees!! Well, that may a bit extreme, but I DO love that they hit so muscle groups in one fell swoop – upper body, core, legs, not to mention cardio….ahhhh, so good! I’ve been incorporating burpees into my workouts for quite a while now, and love adding movements to them …

At JillFit and Metabolic Effect, we are not big fans of crash diets. We believe that in order to live a sustainable Fat Loss Lifestyle, the black-and-white thinking about food and exercise needs to go. Everyone is different–unique metabolisms, personal preferences, individual sensitivities and fat loss formulas.
At ME, we talk about using biofeedback tools …

Tell me if this sounds familiar: you’re going along being a good little fat loss lifestyle follower…prepping meals, eating lean protein and veggies, making sure you eat every 3 hours or so, always keeping a protein bar or something similar on-hand for emergencies, etc….when the unthinkable happens.

Has this ever happen to you? You go away for a long weekend or get back from a vacation later on a Sunday, just to remember how you purged the fridge of all your food before leaving, and now you have no food, no time, no energy and no motivation to get yourself food-prepped for …

Love it or hate it, cardio can be an essential part of a comprehensive fat loss plan when applied correctly. However, the mistake that many make is that they use cardio (and more cardio, and more cardio…) as their #1 tool to lose fat. Long-duration cardio has a poor track record when it comes to …

Yesterday, Metabolic Effect posted an article from their blog that got a lot of attention: A “healthy” diet is not necessarily a “fat loss” diet. It’s a great, insightful post that had many people saying, “I get it!” This idea that eating healthy assumes you will lose fat too. NOT the same thing. However, a …
