I want the service I provide to meet the needs of what a potential client desires. Still, people have questions, so who better to answer than…… More

Healthier Holiday Alcoholic Drinks

We all know that alcoholic drinks aren’t “healthy.” Yeah, some people will make the case for red wine, (with seemingly overrated claims of resveratol) but alcohol is what it is. You drink to be social. You drink to celebrate. You drink to drown your sorrows. Healthy or not, it’s a part of life. As with…… More

Protein Almond Snack Balls

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner always seem to be the easiest meals to figure out. (With lunch tending to be the most the difficult to keep “healthy.”) But for most people, especially those in the working world, finding healthy snacks is oftentimes a frustrating challenge. Whether it’s the deceptively unhealthy “100-calorie” packs, or offices providing fuel…… More

Ask Born: Do Organic Foods Help Fat Loss?

I love Whole Foods, my local famer’s market, and do my best to purchase products from the best sources, including organic foods. That said, slapping organic on a label does not mean it will help you lose weight or slash fat, and in some instances it won’t even guarantee that a food is “healthy.” After…… More

Why Losing Weight Is Hard

I have very few people that I consider “mentors” in my life. My parents are obvious, but outside of my family there is one man that stands above the rest: Ted Spiker. I say this with as much gratitude possible; if it wasn’t for Ted Spiker, I don’t know if I would have ever made…… More

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

When it comes to “go-to” meals, stir fry’s tend to be a staple option. They’re quick, loaded with protein and vegetables, easy to make, and always taste incredible. This recipe offers a little extra flavor in the form of a unique mix of ginger and sriracha. The combination will leave you pleasantly surprises. (Or if…… More

The Ultimate Ceviche Recipe

It’s a snack. It’s a meal. And it goes great with chips. There are few options that are both as healthy and flavorful as ceviche. This simple recipe  loads up on the protein and allows you to cook this in about 20 minutes. The hard part: Waiting for it to marinate in the fridge without digging…… More

The Fitness Divide

I almost punched someone in the gym. And in some ways I’m upset I didn’t. Only doing so would have only made one of the more recent fitness trends even worse. I was in the gym for a weekend lift. The gym was a little busier than usual, but typical for the time of day.…… More

Should Your Workout Kick Your Ass?

If you were to ask me to choose the one thing most people could improve in the gym my answer would be “Intensity.” Problem is, when I suggest workouts need to be harder, most interpret that as meaning more sets, reps, or hours in the gym. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Intensity doesn’t hinge…… More
