Okay guys, it’s been just about three weeks and we’re almost halfway there. By now, you should be over the “induction flu” and have good energy levels, be sleeping much better, and see some gains in the gym. If you aren’t feeling great, please let me know and we can go over your food logs [...]
Ok guys, we’re almost a full week in for those of you who started LBN on Monday and even if you waited till Wednesday to start, you should be well into it by now.
I find the first week of any strict “detox” or lifestyle change to be the hardest. You’re hungrier – physiologically because your [...]
As I mentioned a few times, I really believe being prepared is the key to the success in any life change, especially one as huge as what you eat on a daily basis. So, not only do we meal plan each week, but we also have other tricks to stay prepared. I know it will [...]
So at the meeting, when I asked how many of you were doing the LBN challenge for the first time, more hands shot up than had ever before. This causes my brain to do things: 1) freak out because OMG how am I going to explain this to these people without causing them to run [...]
Ok guys, as 2013 starts, we want you to be the best you can be! So we’re starting our next LBN challenge this month with some changes from last time.
