best diet to lose weight

Bulletproof Diet Review: Will It Really Help You Lose Weight? (2020 Guide)

Is the bulletproof diet by Dave Asprey any good? Will it actually help you lose weight? Well, I’ve tried it for over a year now, and here’s my review.

Most people don’t realize this, but diet is actually the highest leverage point when it comes to losing weight. Diet accounts for about 80% of whether you lose weight or not.

Sure, if you work out enough you can burn off those pancakes and cheese burgers, but if you just follow the right diet, you won’t even have to work out at all.

That being said, if you combine a good diet AND working out…it can kick some serious ass. Here’s my experience with the Bulletproof Diet and how to use it to lose weight.

intermittent fasting guide

The Bodybuilder’s Guide to Intermittent Fasting (2020)

Lately there’s been a lifestyle diet known as intermittent fasting sweeping the nation. Every other fitness guru claims that it helps you put on huge amounts of muscle, while also staying lean at the same time.

However, anyone who’s been lifting for long enough is always skeptical of claims like this—and rightfully so.

It’s very rarely as simple as just doing one thing to get jacked; in reality, everything has its advantages and disadvantages, but could intermittent fasting be the exception to the rule?

In my opinion, intermittent fasting is a phenomenal tool that can help you get shredded and boost productivity…but it depends on how you use it.

Top 3 Bodybuilding Multivitamins on the Market Today

It’s no secret that most of the food we eat nowadays is completely devoid of any form of nutrition. This is why bodybuilding multivitamins are so important.

With mono-cropping, GMO’s, and soil depletion at an all time high, the food that you eat has less nutrients than ever.

Bodybuilding multivitamins can help you make up for the “gaps” in your diet due to this…BUT, not all multi-vitamins are created equal. This is true ESPECIALLY when it comes to bodybuilding.

As you guys know, I worked at a supplement store for a while, so I’ve tried pretty much tried everything.

I’ve tried tons and tons of multi-vitamins for different purposes, and I’ve got a list of my top 3 multi-vitamins made specifically for bodybuilding.

Usually I start my articles off by saying that you don’t need to take supplements, but multi-vitamins are an exception.

You MUST take a bodybuilding multi-vitamin if you want to attain a high level of focus, energy, and health. There’s no way around it.

Top 5 Strongest Pre Workouts in 2020 (#3 Was BANNED!)

Having a strong pre workout is one of the best ways to smash the gym, and get some extra gains. They’re not necessary, but they help a lot.

The right pre-workout will get you amped up to go to the gym. It’ll give you a huge surge of energy, and give you that mental focus that you need to aggressively attack the weights.

Some pre-workouts will even help you build muscle faster, recover faster, and some even help boost your testosterone levels (like Nitraflex).

As you guys know, I used to work at a supplement store—so I’ve tried dozens of pre-workouts (some of which have actually been banned, like Jack3d). I know what works and what doesn’t.

So, with that in mind, here are my top 5 strongest pre workouts currently on the market, and the effects that each one will give you.

the best workout routine for men

5 Best Workout Routines For Men (Which One’s Right For You?)

“What’s the best workout routine?” A lot of guys want a very simple, black and white answer to this question. Well, sorry, but it doesn’t exist. The best workout routine for you will depend on a number of factors:

  • How long have you been working out?
  • Do you want to build strength or mass?
  • Do you want to look good, or just stay fit?
  • Do you value cardiovascular health or muscular health more?
  • Are you busy and crunched for time?
  • Are you a college student with zero time constraints whatsoever?

The fact of the matter is that deciding what the best workout routine is for you is an extremely important aspect of your lifestyle.

I’ve done routines that only require 45 minutes a month (that’s right, like 12 minutes a week) and I’ve done routines that require 3 hours 6 days a week. Every routine has its pros and cons.

I’m not going to sugar coat it for you and tell you some bullshit about how there’s this one routine that fits everyone! It’s the best workout routine out there, and you just have to pay $39.99 to access it! Fuck off. I’m here to tell you the truth based off of my experience. So here it is.

whey protein

The Best Whey Protein Guide You’ll Ever Read (Updated 2020)

“What’s the best whey protein?” the gym-going newbie asks.

Well, as I’ve said before, whey protein is by far one of the best muscle building supplements on planet earth.

It’s perfect right after a workout, because it’s fast digesting—it gets your muscles the protein that they need in just 30 minutes (compared to a meal, which takes around 2 hours).

But it’s not that simple—not all whey protein is created equal. This is one of the first things that I learned from working at a supplement store in college.

There’s cold processed whey, grass-fed whey, casein blends, isolate matrixes, and protein concentrate…how in the hell do you know what to choose?

Well, I’ve tried over 100 different whey protein supplements and narrowed it down to a few of the best so that you don’t have to waste your time and money. Here’s the best whey protein supplements, in my opinion.

Gym Gear: 4 Best Deadlift, Squat, and Bench Straps in 2020

I actually didn’t even use gym gear for a while. Not because I thought it was cheating or anything like that, I mean Olympic power-lifters use it all the time. I guess I just never really thought about it.

But when I recently started using the following gym gear, my max lifts literally went up overnight. My bench went up 10%, my squat went up 15%, and my deadlift went up a whopping 25%.

If you’re a guy who’s trying to get bigger in the gym, or if you’re just trying to get stronger and leaner, I highly urge you to use gym gear for the major compound lifts.

Starting Strength 101: The Full Routine & Guide (For Beginners)

Starting Strength can be one of the best workout routines for beginners, so if that’s what you want, then look no further.

I know how frustrating it can be, searching around, trying to figure out where to start. There’s literally a million different “gurus” saying that you should do this, or that you should do that. It’s incredibly confusing.

I was in the same boat about a decade ago, and I wasted years following stupid workout routines that don’t work.

Most people will tell you to do a split, but in my experience most people also don’t know what they’re talking about.

In my nearly 10 years of fitness experience, the best workout routine for beginners is Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, due to its sheer simplicity, effectiveness, and time-efficiency.

Finding a good bulking diet when you’re broke as a joke can be REALLY difficult. Bodybuilding foods can cost an arm and a leg.

So, I decided to create the most calorie-efficient, cheapest, clean bulking diet possible—and I succeeded.

On just $100 a month, I was able to successfully bulk up for the winter, putting on a solid 20 pounds of muscle. Plus, all of my lifts went up.
