Hi Everyone,

I hope you all fared well in the storm this weekend and had no major problems!!

I have been busy on many projects that I hope you will all appreciate and find useful.  I am still working on the GMO food and how to STOP MONSANTO post and should have it completed soon (when you see how EVIL Monsanto is you will be shocked, disgusted and OUTRAGED!!)

Here is a simple research proven technique on how to aid your fat loss attempts!

Obese people who took in 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily in a study melted significantly more body fat and belly fat than a group taking a placebo — despite being on the same diet and exercise plan. It appears vinegar may offer a weight loss boost thanks to acetic acid.

Seems this compound does double-duty fat-blasting by inhibiting the body’s ability to store fat while boosting our metabolisms ability to use it for energy. Apple cider vinegar was the type used in the recent study, researchers suspect most varieties of the liquid seasoning could have the same get-skinny effects (I would be wary of Balsamic vinegar for it has a higher carbohydrate & calorie content – 1 cup has 38 grams of sugar & 224 calories ; stick with the apple cider vinegar used in the study and use organic whenever possible – Note: organic apple cider vinegar is sold locally at Kings & Whole Foods!)

Other Benefits:Vinegar also seemed to help lower triglyceride levels and systolic blood pressure at the end of the 12-week study.

Of course as always I will provide a scientific reference to back up any claims I write about:


Vinegar intake reduces body weight, body fat mass, and serum triglyceride levels in obese Japanese subjects. Kondo, T. et al.,Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry 2009 Aug;73(8):1837-1843.

Here are some other upcoming events & points of interest:

Besides the the Non-GMO food post, I am currently working on a post detailing the correct & INCORRECT ways to use stability balls for exercise.Needless to say if: maximum strength, muscle growth, CALORIE EXPENDITURE, and Sports Performance are your goals, then combining heavy weights & stability balls is WRONG, DANGEROUS and a F.A.D – F.A.D being an acronym for “Forthcoming Anatomical Dysfunction”!

Inflatable exercise balls are a tool, and like any tool there are both right & wrong ways  they can be used – check back here soon to LEARN THE DIFFERENCE!

Don’t forget to RSVP for the FREEGolf Conditioning Workshops– spaces are filling up FAST!
