    By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation, Nutrition | on November 10, 2011

    Beware.  You are about to enter the most difficult time of the year from a nutrition and exercise standpoint. It’s the time of the year when temptations abound, your mind plays tricks, hectic schedules and family gatherings stress you out, and you start thinking that maybe you’ll just face your weight issues in January. After […]

  • What Diets and Nutrition Have In Common: Very Little

    By Raphael | In Nutrition | on September 15, 2011

    Go ahead. Google the next latest and greatest diet of the century. Soup diet, Cookie diet, maybe a grapefruit every hour on the hour diet, take your pick. Have you ever considered that this stuff isn’t effective? That it’s nothing more than a marketing scheme? What you need is a completely different approach. An approach […]

  • Fad Diets: Just Don’t

    By Raphael | In Nutrition | on August 17, 2011

    Disgust. Impatience. Roll of the eyes. That sums up my reaction to fad diets. I can’t stand them and I think they’re utterly ridiculous. A nutrition plan for life (notice I use the words for life) should not eliminate all types of food groups. Any fad diet that asks you to eat only one source […]

  • The Diet Hideout

    By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation, Nutrition | on June 30, 2011

    Sometimes what you don’t say says more than you realize. The diet hideout. See if this sounds familiar. You courageously declare that you’ve had enough, and you’re going to lose those haunting, pain-in-the-a** pounds that have been teasing and calling you names for so long. Enough – you’ve had enough with the overanalyzing and excuses. […]

  • Aging and the Big Fat Lie

    By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation, Nutrition | on April 8, 2011

    “Most people work at dying. I work at living. It’s a pain in the ass. You have to eat right and exercise. Most people, when they reach a certain age, let down and talk about what they used to do. Well, who gives a damn about what you used to do? It’s what you’re doing […]

  • Women Don’t Give A Sh*t!

    By Raphael | In Motivation, Nutrition | on March 14, 2011

    Two weeks ago I wrote a guest blog for Diets in Review. It was an entertaining blog in which I discussed cellulite and the ways to diminish it. The inspiration for the cellulite blog came from a conversation I had with my wife, Pam, before a presentation I was to give on the subject in […]
