Nutrition: What Everyone Gets Wrong

As I return to posting to Team WB Fitness today, I’m going over a topic that I’ve only just recently began to witness and comment on.  I’ll paraphrase Ronnie Coleman here when I say “Errybody wanna lose body fat but nobody wanna give up the pizza.”  Hardly Shakespeare, but you know what I mean. The biggest bit of knowledge I’ve learned this year about fitness is that your diet has to be as important as your training. Today, I’ll go over my insights and keys to lowering body fat.

Meal Prep 101:Pepper Chicken Breast

I’m back from a much needed and as usual, way too short vacation with the family.  For meal prep for the week, I wanted to change it up from my fritatta  (as there are too many eggs on this site lately) so I went for a more traditional high protein lunch for the week; chicken breast.  Today I’ll go over what you need and how I prepared and portioned it.

How To Make Overnight Oats

When it comes to food, I often get on a kick where I’ll make one thing I really enjoy for a week or two and happily munch away until I either get tired of it or find something else that interests me.  For the past week, I have gotten back into making overnight oats.  They are delicious, filling, and as nutritious (or not) as you want to make them.

Today, I’m going to cover the basics of making overnight oats and what you can add to the oats to improve their flavor and nutrition, because let’s face it, oatmeal by itself is about the nastiest food known to Western Civilization. Continue reading “How To Make Overnight Oats”

Another Morning Boost To Your Coffee

Today I’m going to follow up J.Nyx’s post from yesterday with a little trick that I learned from Mark’s Daily Apple for adding some powerful nutrition to your coffee without altering the flavor much.

This trick is to simply add an egg to your coffee.

Now I know what you’re thinking because I had the exact same thought when I first read it.  “Add an egg to my coffee?  Nasty!”

The truth of the matter, however, is that adding egg to your coffee has a similar effect that adding creamer would.  Continue reading “Another Morning Boost To Your Coffee”

Protein Pick Me Up

As all of you know, I get up at the ass-crack of dawn to go to the gym.  In fact, before the sun is up I’m on my way there. An important part of bodybuilding is getting your macros, especially protein.  Also, it being the early morning, I like to have some coffee prior to starting my day.  My stomach would feel all bloated and full if I had a protein shake, then a few cups of coffee.  Then it hit me, to combine the two.  Today I’ll share my caffeine infused protein shake, and how to tailor it to your personal fitness needs.

Meal Prep 101

If you guys are following a lifting program and trying to pack on muscle, you gotta eat.  I foolishly had to learn this the hard way and wasted two years lifting while not eating enough for muscle growth.  To put on muscle, you need to eat, and you need to eat a lot of wholesome, clean foods,but things like family, work, and other time constraints can get in the way of the nutrition you need.  Today, I’ll go over what meal prep is, how I prepare all my food for the week, and how even non-lifters can benefit from cooking all their food at once.
