5 health reasons I stopped wearing aftershave

One of the scariest things I uncovered when researching my book was just how many toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis. We drink out of plastic bottles that contain BPA, a known carcinogen that also sucks away our testosterone and makes us infertile. We eat foods laced with hormones that have the potential to give us prostate cancer. 90% of the soy in the USA is genetically modified, engineered to be resistant to massively toxic fertilizers and other poisons like Roundup – the poster-child for Monsanto’s billions. We suck the fumes from the freeways and swim in oceans that are polluted by the run-off from factories and industrial waste. Toxic chemicals and pollutants are all around us – but one fact I was surprised to uncover was just how many toxins and chemicals are in our fragranced personal care products – the stuff we put on our face and lather our bodies with every day.

How to eliminate the “Dad Bod”

“Dad bods” are the new fitness standard for a growing bunch of men across the United States. What’s a dad bod? Well, think Seth Rogan, Jason Segel or Leonardo DiCaprio on summer vacation and between movie roles: overweight, out of shape, and happy and content with his pasta, rosé and Victoria’s Secret models. Basically, pudgy, cuddly, doughy, don’t really care about how you look any more: That’s the dad bod. And some women are supporting the new trend, if you believe the studies — apparently because having a man who has a dad bod as a partner takes the pressure off them to stay in shape. Another rationale is that if the man is not as focused on his own body, he’ll spend more time with and take better care of his partner and family — or so the theory goes. Read More

What’s “skinny fat”?

Craig Cooper

If you are doing prolonged cardio exercise several times a week, or perhaps even more often, chances are you’re not getting the physical results nor the health benefits you think you are. You want to look good and be healthy, right? Although all that jogging, swimming, running, and cycling may make you accomplished at all of these activities, it also can put you into a category known as skinny fat. Read More

Want to lose weight? Don’t run a marathon….

 

A_RRP_6871

Reluctantly, I recently signed up to run the New York Marathon again this year. I am doing it with a close friend, Chris Klug, who is raising money for his Chris Klug Foundation — a great cause that I am excited to be supporting.

I say reluctantly because I had long ago ticked marathons off my bucket list. I’ve continued doing a whole bunch of other trail races and adventures but had personally sworn off doing any more marathons.

Why?

For me it came down to two things: the type of training, and the associated nutritional requirements to support that training load (and running the actual race) — basically, all the highly-refined carbs and fructose-based sugars you need to ingest to maintain the level of training required over all the months.
