When you eat a meal do you get tired or energized?

You might be saying I don’t know…

I know you don’t know, but if you did know what would you say? (Tony & Mastin-ism)

I would tell you that it’s not what you eat that gives you the energy, it’s really when you eat.

Recently, I’ve been sharing with clients, friends, family, and everybody in Paris that speaks English that frequency is being fit.

So today (because the when is so much more important than the what) I want to create your success for you or at the very least give you an outline that I hope serves you and speaks to your success.

  • 7am Rise / Drink 16oz room temperature water and break your fast, aka break-fast, eat within 30 minutes of waking up
  • 10am Drink 16oz of water, then have a snack (notice how i’m not sharing what to eat)
  • 1pm Drink 16oz of water, then lunch (add a green veggie)
  • 4pm drink 16oz of water w/ lime, then have a snack
  • 7pm drink 8oz of water w/ lemon, then have dinner
  • 10pm drink 1 cup of Yogi Soothing Caramel Bedtime tea & rest

I’d like to report that more Parisians are having breakfast because of my relentless pursuit of simplifying how to eat well.

Now, go on… rock the when not the what.

Eat Fat for Energy and Get Fit

Eat Fat; Get Energy

“Fat-free” was a fad. 

Now it’s a new day and the truth comes out “Eat Good Fat to Get Fit.”

Possibly the best news you have heard all day and, yes, I’m serious!

On this week’s Coaching Conversation, I break down 3 myths about fat that drive me crazy when I hear them. 

Also, I offer you 20+ examples of good fats that I want you to start eating to create the energy you want and crave.

I’m not sure if you are like me when it comes to nutrition,  but I can’t get enough of the education of food. This week, I literally geek out on the science of fat and dive deep into the subject. #haha

After watching the video, in the comments section below, please do share how you will incorporating more good fats into your diet. Inquiring minds (AKA: the FYCcommunity) want to know)!

Cheers with Water,


PS: I wanted to leave you with this. When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, its ONLY about 2 things: Commitment to living healthy = Desire and Action 

Eat Fat to Lose Fat


From the Fall of 2006 to the Summer of 2010, I worked will a client that wanted to lose weight but never could.

It seemed no matter what we did, she would stay the same weight with the same figure.

In the summer of 2010, we had a heart to heart talk and she confessed to me that she hadn’t quite followed the nutrition plan we had put together.

She told me that she didn’t trust the fact that eating high quality good fat foods would help her lose weight.

I could totally understand why she felt that way, when I kept telling her that you have to eat fat to lose fat. Really! Did that even make sense?

However, what I explained to her was that all fats are not created equal, and although I understood her reluctance, I explained why what I was suggesting actually works and asked her to just try.

Once she shifted her mindset and started eating high fat quality foods (obviously, in moderation), she dropped to her goal weight in 4 months verse the 4 years that she struggled.

In this week’s coaching conversation, I break down why healthy fats promote weight loss and provide you some quick homework to help you understand your body better.

WOW (Word of the Week: “Eat Good Fat to Lose Bad Fat.” @CoachAdamCobb @FYCmethod

Do I need Supplements To Be Healthy?


Today we are tackling a great question from LUCA of the FYC Community. Is there any way I can get healthy, physically and mentally, without taking supplements? 

The answer is a resounding YES; you absolutely can maintain nutrients and energy in your body for overall health without supplements.

However, there is an astounding BUT associated to that statement.

The reality is that most people are not eating the right things (or enough of the right things) to get the amount of nutrients their body needs on a daily basis.

What’s important to realize is food is thy medicine, the cleaner the food you eat, the less supplementation you will need.

In the comments below, please share what supplements you are taking and why? I know there are so many questions on this topic, so the more you can share the more we can continue the conversation on this very important topic.

Thank you again for taking time to read and watch the blogs. I hope that each week you are taking a nugget or two away and really starting to kickstart your health.

As a disclaimer: Be sure to ask your doctor if there are any implications in taking any supplements with any medications you may be on. Most supplements are harmless, however, you always want to consult with your medical practitioner to be sure.

What Is Chlorella?

Our previous post mentions Chlorella as one of the ingredients in Pure Greens. Several have asked, “What is Chlorella?” and that’s a good question to ask! It’s always a good idea to check into the ingredients of the food preparations we eat. We sometimes ignore those hard to pronounce ingredients at our peril. The good news is, although Chlorella may look hard to pronounce it really isn’t (Klor-Ella) and it really is a great source of good nutrition.

Advanced Cross-Training Workout


I really look forward to my cross-training workout.  This is one of my official workouts and it’s extreme–so proceed with caution if you choose to follow it. I know that I preach simple movement—but as you enhance your own momentum in movement, you have to change up your exercises so there is consistent muscle confusion.

Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding certain exercises and ways that you may modify the workout for your level by responding to the blog entry.
