Happy New Strength!

by Fred Hahn on January 2, 2014

Well, we’re off! 2014 is here and so are you! It’s time, don’t you think, to create that body you’ve always wanted? I’m here to help. I’m not talking about getting thin or skinny or getting a 6 pack. In my opinion, these are just cosmetic considerations that have nothing to do with your main […]

Here’s my 2 cents worth of thought on the issue: No it’s not and no you don’t. What may be “killing” your thyroid is a poorly formulated low carb diet – just like any poorly formulated diet might. But it ain’t the lack of starch, as starch is non essential to human life. The lack of what […]

How To Solve The American Health Care System

August 25, 2013

How you ask? I’ll tell you how – we need to stop making people need it. And how do we do this? Simple. Each individual must: 1. Eat only fatty animal matter (including organs) with a salad and seasonal fruit 2 or 3X a day. 2. Lift weights slowly to fatigue, 2X a week, with […]

Sugar, not Fat, is the Big Fat Slob

August 22, 2013

I said it before and I’ll say it again: obesity is not caused by eating too much food per se. It’s caused by the type of food you eat and how the food you’re eating affects your hormones. Do you really think 2000 calories of Twinkies affects your body in exactly the same way as […]

You’re Seven Feet Tall Because You Eat Too Much

March 7, 2013

Or, do you just eat a lot when you’re seven feet tall? Think this is a dumb point to make? When this young man walks into a room, does anyone think “Wow – that is one tall kid! He must be eating too much!” No. Of course not. We know that he has a hormonal […]

Protein – How Much You Need and Why

February 6, 2013

Protein is the major structural component of every cell in the human body. The word “protein” is thought to come from the Greek word proteios which means “the first quality.” Protein is a very important dietary nutrient and many people do not eat adequate amounts of it or the most nutritious forms of it on a […]

Dr. McDougall a.k.a Dr. Potato Head

December 10, 2012

The purveyor of the potato/starch diet, John McDougall M.D., strikes again with more starchy gobbledy-gook nonsense about low carb/paleo diets. There is so much to dissect and render inert in his article that it may take me three parts to accomplish the task. Perhaps I can lick it in two. But whether it takes two […]

Don’t Eat Wheat

December 7, 2012

Here’s why. Listen closely to what Bill Davis M.D. is saying (and try not to listen to Oz). What isn’t said well on this Dr. Oz episode is that wheat is pervasive. It is put in foods you’d never realize like soy sauce, creamed spinach, french onion soups made with beer, french fries (to make […]

How to Lose Fat Successfully

August 12, 2012

I am in the process of finishing this paper to help my clients understand how to lose fat successfully without having to read a novel-sized diet book (which a lot of folks just won’t do). I thought it might make a nice blog post. It is NOT grammar checked so be kind when you comment. […]

Health Magazines are Full of S**t

August 2, 2012

Don’t even dream about losing fat this fast. It’s horse-hockey my friends. When approached correctly, fat loss is a slow process. Very slow. At best you can lose about a pound, maybe two per week. This is especially important to understand when you’re not that over fat to begin with. Patience is a virtue. Try […]
