    What to eat?

    I have no idea what is healthy anymore. I was eating lower carb, higher fat for years, but feel like I want to introduce some carbs and reduce some fats. What does your typical day look like? Does anyone count macros or calories?

    Fave workout clothes?

    What are your go to brands/stores for workout clothes? I feel like I need some new ones, specifically t-shirts. I want a loose t-shirt, but I like moisture wicking. Also sports bras for larger chested gals? I would like to avoid racerback, just because they are so hard to get on/off. I used...

    Lost: Motivation

    Lately I've lost motivation to do any workout. I used to get up early and do a workout and now all I want to do is sleep in or relax on the couch and drink coffee. I used to be a gym rat and workout almost everyday, but over the past couple of years I've cut back quite a bit. I've had plantar...

    Are any of you carb cycling and IF?

    I follow Carb Nite by John Keifer. I've cut back quite a bit on Cathe workouts. I do weights with Cathe and use a spin bike for HIIT (30 sec all out, 3 min rest X5), usually one day before carb nite and one day after carb nite, and WALKING!! I would do sprints instead of a spin bike, but I...

    Muscle knots

    Certain exercises cause me muscle pain. Everytime I do rear delts, my back feels all knotted up the next day. Somtimes when I try to incorporate yoga, I get all knotted up in my neck and back from trying to hold poses. Too much time in downward dog makes my neck hurt. A lot of times I need to...

    Question: Can you lift as much as Cathe?

    Just wondering if you match Cathe's weight in her videos? I saw her doing 35lb dumbbell chest presses, and I'm like struggling with 20lb dumbbells..but then she will do squats with 25's and I can match it or even go heavier. My upper body is so much weaker than my lower body.

    Spin Bike Recommendations

    Hi, I know this was a topic before, I'm thinking about buying a spin bike and wondering what are some good brands? What should I be looking for? Is it worth spending $1000 or can you get a decent one for a couple hundred? Anybody that has owned one for a while, any problems? Thanks in advance!

    The Canada Food Guide is Killing You

    I still think the American version needs a lot of work. They say limit sugary drinks, then they tell you to have one small glass of juice a day...that is pure sugar! They are also still telling people to avoid butter and then they list canola oil as a healthy fat. It is all so wrong! Not to...

    The Canada Food Guide is Killing You

    I know it seems crazy, I thought so too at first. But after reading much of the science based information out there, it all makes sense! Heart disease and diabetes are linked to carbohydrates (yes, even grains!) not, fat! Two years ago, I gave up sugar, bread, cereal, rice, pasta (all...

    Full fat vs. no fat or low fat

    Full fat!! I make my own yogurt using 18% cream. It is the best yogurt you will ever taste. Non-fat yogurt is just pure sugar.

    Low salt levels

    I recently went through keto/low carb flu. I had this fogginess and dizziness that I couldn't shake. After reading some stuff on the internet, I found out it was salt related. I now have a cup of broth in the morning and the afternoon and put salt on everything! Feeling fine now!
