Three Meals Superior for Appetite Control

The six meals a day dogma gets knocked again. Badly. It wasn’t too long ago that the mainstream media caught wind of the fact that there is no difference with regards to fat loss on lower versus higher meal frequencies.
Now a new study shows that three meals a day is actually superior to six meals a for appetite control.
Interestingly, the three meal-setup used the exact same meal split as the one I have been advocating for the Leangains-protocol: three meals consumed within an 8 hour time period. Let’s take a closer look at the study.
Participants were monitored during four different 11-hour trials separated by 1-2 weeks. They were given three or six meals and asked to fill out a questionnaire relating to hunger and satiety with regular intervals. Blood samples were obtained to gauge levels of the hunger hormones ghrelin and PYY, as well as blood glucose [...]

My fast metabolism secret

Eat Stop Eat has some peculiar (and potent) effects…
Most obviously, it’ll help you lose weight.
AND, it helps you overcome obsessive compulsive eating.
But, it also causes some issues…
As a group, people following Eat Stop Eat have chosen NOT to ‘buy-in’ to the typical nutrition nonsense.
We’ve learned that to be lean, all we have to do is workout and eat less…(kinda obvious, I know)
And, we’ve also learned to relax about what we eat..try to eat responsibly, but also enjoy the foods we like.
So why is this an issue?
Well, because everyone else just can’t FIGURE US OUT.
They don’t believe it can be this easy.
So they look for other explanations…
Let’s face it, we’re becoming a group of people that other people HATE…
We are actually those people who “Eat whatever they want are are still losing weight / stay lean”
Just the other day, we had a family friend accuse my wife of having a ‘fast [...]

Grilled Cod with Carrot Parsnip Puree

Here’s a lovely simple recipe for the weekend. Today’s Good Friday and growing up we’d always have fish on Fridays but especially today. I figured I’d better keep the mother happy and post a fish recipe for you guys just so she knows I haven’t lost all my values. Just kidding Mary! What I love about Pacific cod aside from it being fished sustainably is how moist it is. It’s perfect for grilling as it has a high oil content which helps keep it moist and delicious.
Happy Easter guys.

Hey just got an email from one of my favorite mentors Brad Pilon. Man he hits it right on the head. Everyone seems to think that losing weight is a complicated process. It does not have to be I am a perfect example of that. There are very, very few things I restrict from my diet and to tell you the truth those things are either things I do not like or have never had a fancy for… like pop. Lucky me huh? Well any way enjoy the read. And hey when you coming into Warrior fit in Boise to workout? Lets Gooooo!!!

Hi Darrin,

I thought of something really interesting this morning.

Eat Stop Eat has some peculiar (and potent) effects…

Most obviously, it’ll help you lose weight.

AND, it helps you overcome obsessive compulsive eating.

But, it also causes some ‘issues’…

As a group, people following Eat Stop Eat have chosen NOT to
‘buy-in’ to the typical nutrition nonsense.

We’ve learned that to be lean, all we have to do is workout and eat
less…(kinda obvious, I know)

And, we’ve also learned to relax about what we eat..try to eat
responsibly, but also enjoy the foods we like.

So why is this an issue?

Well, because everyone else just can’t FIGURE US OUT.

They don’t believe it can be THIS EASY.

So they look for other explanations…

Let’s face it, we’re becoming a group of people that other people
HATE…

We are actually those people who “Eat whatever they want are are
still losing weight / stay lean”

Just the other day, we had a family friend accuse my wife of having
a ‘fast metabolism’!

Yeah, It MUST be our super fast metabolisms ;)

So in around about way the problem with Eat Stop Eat is this:

We might actually be contributing to other people’s
nutrition-confusion.

But really, they choose what they want to believe.

If they WANT to believe the ONLY POSSIBLE way to lose weight
it to never eat another MICROGRAM of sugar ever again..fine.

We know the truth…

With ESE you truly can have your cake and eat it too!

Good food, lean body, less stress.

Brad

Researchers from West Virginia University’s Health Research Center, surveyed the students, teachers and food service staff involved with Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution in Huntington W.Va.
Their findings?

77% of the students indicated they were “very unhappy” with the new foods served at school.…they preferred chicken nuggets and fries  over baked chicken drumsticks with salad.
Lunch participation dropped from 75% to 66%…they really didn’t like those drumsticks
There was a 25% decrease in the consumption of milk….indicating that a lot of kids only drink milk if it’s sweetened and flavored

83% of the “lunch ladies” reported a longer preparation time for the Food Revolution meals….they estimated that cooking whole foods would require an extra hour of prep time per day
67% of the cooks reported food safety concerns re raw chicken & tomatoes
83% of the cooks rated the taste of the standard meals as good or excellent, while
Only 50% of the cooks rated Jamie Oliver’s meals as [...]

While preexisting conditions and required coverage have taken the main stage on the health care reform bill, many of the smaller changes hold just as much weight in the future of America’s health. These changes and additions have been largely ignored by mainstream media despite several billion dollars allocated to new preventative care initiatives.
Additionally, the bill includes some surprising fine print regulations. Most regulations won’t take effect immediately, but the sum of so many new laws and restrictions could cause major repercussions on our system over the next several years.
Finally, while the bill is certainly heavy on spending, there are several programs included to reduce overall health care costs, but such programs appear highly unorthodox on a first reading. The Worker Bees and I have combed through thousands of pages of minutiae to find nine lesser known stipulations, clauses, regulations, and programs in the new bill.
