One of the biggest falsehoods is about the great results you can achieve with spot reduction. There are some real sham artists out there claiming that you can focus workouts on only one part of your body, like abdominals, and burn away the fat on just that part.That’s blatantly false! What’s actually needed is an in-depth knowledge of fitness athletic shoes, understanding exactly how fat is burned and knowing how muscle gets built.

After that I went and taught at a place called Bastyr University. They train naturopathic doctors. My wife actually was going to school there. Then we moved back to California and we’ve been in our own practice for the last five years doing chiropractic and teaching raw food nutrition.

You don’t want to start your day with soft drinks, or anything with a lot of plain sugar. So doughnuts, sweets or pastries would not be a good idea.

This is a tricky subject. Low carbohydrate diets in high performance athletics are still relatively new. Your body needs some type of energy source which can be only from either carbohydrates (turned to sugar and then stored in your muscles and liver as glycogen) or (good) fats. A low carb diet may work in endurance sports as long as you have more fat and less protein (as opposed to high fat and high protein), plenty of vegetables and occasional servings of fruit. In strength sports, however, in which explosiveness is required such as sprinting, it would be hard to find an athlete who doesn’t eat carbohydrates. More research is needed here. Sadly, much of the research concerning sports nutrition is paid by supplement companies.
