The Great Dairy Debate

Many people have approached me or emailed me as to why certain individuals are allowed dairy and why others are not. Here is why:

Let's use Mr. Andrew Burns as an example. This guy works opposite to most people. He has to work hard to keep weight on his tiny frame whereas most individuals have to work their asses off to keep the weight off (myself included). In order for him maintain or even put on weight, dairy is an easy way to provided the much needed calories to support this. There is a rule that these individuals must abide by and deviation from this rule will have their $20 being contributed for the BBQ:

*DAIRY IS ONLY PERMITTED WHEN CONSUMING OTHER FOODS OR POST-WORKOUT*

Day 1 - Get Rid Of That Sugar!

Today is Day 1 and it is time to eliminate foods with added sugar from your diets. And remember to look at food labels when buying stuff from the grocery store. Make sure you don't see the words sugar, dextrose (or anything that ends with -ose), and agave to name a few.

A Few Ideas

When cooking, the following are some alternatives to consider:
  • milk - nut milk, coconut milk
  • butter - olive oil, coconut oil, and to a lesser extent, bacon fat
  • yogurt - coconut milk
  • sour cream - chilled coconut milk with a few drops of lemon juice
  • whipped cream - chilled coconut milk that has been sitting in the fridge for a couple of days uncovered (option - add zest from lemon or orange)
