How to Be Healthy at Halloween

How to Be Healthy at Halloween

October 29, 2019

The moment we want to make a choice that centers around our circumstances, we are allowing our circumstances to dictate our choice.

This is not a good idea in life—or with your diet. 

Let’s say you’ve been making a conscious effort to make lifestyle changes. You’re actively practicing healthy habits of exercise, solid nutrition, quality rest, etc.—but you only choose to make the effort when the choice is easy.

How to Continue Your Exercise Routine When Traveling

How to Continue Your Exercise Routine When Traveling

October 22, 2019

It’s the start that stops most people. Generally, we are quick to make excuses to not get in a good sweat while traveling. We’ll use reasons that have to do with time, space, place, sleep, work, energy, being alone, and alternative activities (such as wanting to explore a new city)...and the list goes on. 

I’d like to flip those excuses on their head. I’d like to make them positives—reasons to exercise instead of avoiding it! 

Truthfully, it’s far more important how you talk to yourself and how you’re explaining to yourself what is going on around you, than what is actually going on. Perspective matters!

Travel and Your Diet

October 15, 2019

Do you “let yourself go” when you travel . . . and eat whatever you want?

Traveling can be one of the greatest blessings. To experience different parts of the world: the culture, the food, the history—it can all be wonderful.

However, travel for most of us usually means work, not vacation. Sometimes there is a chance to experience something new on a work trip, but that doesn’t happen often. Time is money, and schedules are often tight.

How to Pick a Gym

How to Pick a Gym

October 08, 2019

First of all, I would encourage you to not feel like you need to pick only one gym. You don’t need to pick only one kind of exercise, and you can pick multiple gyms, too.  

Our bodies are not able to do the same thing over and over without proper rest and proper variety. If we do not acknowledge this fact, we invite injury—and a step backward from our commitments.

The Importance of Collagen Proteins

The Importance of Collagen Proteins

October 01, 2019

First, let’s understand that proteins are one of three macronutrients. When you hear “macronutrients” or “macro’s,” that refers to the Carbs, Fats, and Proteins of a food source. 

All food is made up of either Carbs, Fats, or Proteins. These are what our body uses for energy, recovery, growth, etc. 

Micronutrients = vitamins and minerals, etc. (think of them as keys to unlock doors for certain functions in your body to happen). They are not used for energy like macronutrients are, but they make it possible to use the energy macro’s provide.

What is MinusCal?

September 21, 2019

MinusCal is simple: We are a driven group of people who want to change the trending landscape of America and the world—a world where heart health is under attack by nutritional deception, and where money has driven decisions instead of quality.

Heart Health is Our Passion

Heart Health is Our Passion

September 21, 2019

As we’ve said, the heart is the most important muscle in the body. It works harder than any other muscle, and it works constantly. I compared it to a car engine and drew parallels to highlight the importance of caring for the “engine” of the human body. 

If it stops, you stop. That’s no bueno. 

The heart has become a major focus in the medical world, and I want to take a moment to explain to you why this is true.

How to Handle Stress on Your Heart

September 10, 2019

Stress. The word, all alone, brings an uneasiness. Stress can find it’s way in to everything I just mentioned, and yet it is seemingly invisible. We’re are just now learning how to measure stress. Did you know that simply having a “Type A” personality means you are at least as likely to have heart problems as a smoker or someone who has high cholesterol!? That’s bonkers.

Why Exercise Does Not Always Equal Weight Loss

Why Exercise Does Not Always Equal Weight Loss

July 25, 2019

One of my favorite studies on this subject (which I am having a terrible time finding and will have to link to later) measures how much two groups ate for lunch. One group went on a “nature walk” before lunch as a group building exercise while the other did the same walk but was told it was for “exercise”.

How Smaller Portions Can Affect Your Health

How Smaller Portions Can Affect Your Health

July 25, 2019

Eating smaller portions might sound simple, but it requires quite an overhaul of many people’s habits and routines. One study of two groups of randomly selected adults eating ice cream reveals an interesting observation about people.

They served themselves and were allowed to have as much ice cream as they wanted. The only difference was the size of the bowls and the ice cream scoops. The results? Read this article to learn more.
