Michael Phelps and Kellogg - Is a Controversy Brewing?

Did you hear in the news that Michael Phelps is promoting kids to be more active through Kelloggs?

Sounds good doesn't it, but is it really?

Yes and no. Let me explain.

Apart from the surface, what is being promoted?

To consume more highly processed, sugary foods, right?

Of course I'm all for kids becoming more active as childhood obesity is on the rise like never before. Kids are developing Type II diabetes which was originally known as an adult disease. They are also going to their doctors with high cholesterol and heart disease at young ages.

Sad isn't it.

Kids are just not as active as they used to be years ago.

We all know that kids are more and more sitting around watching TV, playing video games, not participating in as many activities as kids used to before and are just all around not physically active.

Now the thing with Michael Phelps being on the Kelloggs' cereal boxes is that this will ultimately lead to kids eating more of these types of foods.

Not good. As really these types of foods further perpetuate the obesity problem. By no means do they cause the problem but they sure don't help.

Kids may also think (either consciously or unconsciously) that if I eat these foods I'll be like Michael Phelps, but we all know that isn't true even though Michael Phelps' 12,000 calorie diet is not what you'd consider healthy (from what I've seen, there's no fruit or vegetables in it except for tomato sauce spread over a POUND of pasta!)

What are your thoughts on this issue? I'd love to hear them. Feel free to comment below.


p.s. I'd like to offer each and every one of you who has never trained with me before to come in for a free exercise session and "test drive" my services.

If you are wanted to change the way you look, feel, and live, lets make it happen.

Do You Believe In Miracles?...if not, read this!

I have a rather interesting story that happened to me on just this past Saturday.

If you don't believe in miracles now, I hope this story will move you closer to believing in them.

On Wednesday of last week I dropped my hockey skates off at a sports shop in my area to get sharpened and some repair work done on them.

They said they'd be ready in a day so I thought as long as I get them before Saturday at 6pm I'd be fine as I had a game that night at 9:30pm.

So Saturday comes along and I completely forgot to pick them up until 6:30pm, which is a slight problem as they closed at 6pm.

I called the store's two numbers quite a few times in hope that someone was still there working on something, but to no avail. They had left.

My mom suggested I swing by the store in hopes that someone was in fact there but just wasn't picking up the phone.

I thought it'd be a waste of time as I would drive all the way there to only experience what I knew.

But thank God for moms, she insisted I go and in fact said she'd drive as she was pretty persistent.

So we get to the shop at around 6:55pm and I make a beeline for the door. After a few minutes of standing there calling the shop's two numbers and make a call to the captain of my hockey team and am leaving him a message when I see this dark image moving in the shop towards me.

Out of shock I see my mom walking towards me from the inside.

One of the employees opens the door and allows me in and my mom relates to me how she got in.

So while I was standing at the door my mom drove to the back of the building and as she was driving back there she noticed a car parked in the area right behind the shop.

She mentions she went right up to the car, beeped her horn, rolled down the window and told the driver WE NEED SOME SKATES!

Thank God he in fact worked there.

Here's the amazing part. He mentioned that he was driving with his wife to go to some event and just felt he should go back to the shop and make a call on his cell to a friend (as he didn't want to drive and talk at the same time).

He said he's never done that before but just felt like he should just go back to the shop. So in that few minutes that he would have been there, my mom showed up.

To me that's a miracle. As what are the chances of him going back to the shop when he's never done that better and being there at the exact time we showed up.

If you don't believe in miracle hopefully this has changed your mind some.

Fish Oil vs. Flaxseed - Who Wins?

Have you ever asked yourself this questions: Should I take flaxseed oil in addition to or in place of fish oil?

To answer this you should probably know a little about the two fatty acids that the body cannot biosynthesize, and are therefore considered essential: linoleic acid (an n-6) and alpha linolenic acid (an n-3).

These two fatty acids must be obtained from the diet because the body lacks the delta-15 and the delta-12 desaturases, which are needed to create double bonds and elongate fatty acid chains beyond 9 carbons to create these essential compounds.

Still with me?


As nutritionist and strength coach Alan Aragon has noted on several occasions:

“……based on estimates from archaeological and modern-day hunter-gatherer population research, human beings originally thrived on a diet whose ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids was approximately 1:1, and unlikely to be greater than 4:1. It also contained far less trans fatty acids and than the present diet. Today, consumption of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids is roughly 25:1. A major cause for this is the predominance of n-6 oils (corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, refined packaged grain products) and a relative minority in n-3 sources (fatty marine fish, flaxseed oil, walnuts, and small amounts of canola oil).”

That being said, there is often a stigma associated with flaxseed products in general. It’s often been noted that ingesting flaxseed to increase levels of EPA/DHA (the omega-3’s) is pointless due to the poor conversion rate of ALA into the said omega-3’s.

However, in his book Girth Control, Aragon showcased a study in which a team recently observed 3g ALA/day (from 5.2g flaxseed oil) raise plasma EPA levels by 60% at the end of a 12-week trial.*

Flaxseed oil WILL convert to long chain omega 3s however not everyone can do it effectively as certain individuals lack delta-15 and the delta-12 desaturases, specific enzymes to aid in conversion.

I do however recommend adding ground flaxseed to your yogurt or protein shakes as a serving of about 1 tablespoon elicits roughly 3-5 grams of fiber (depending on the brand), and the lignans found in flaxseeds also serve as an antioxidant.

If you are going to choose one, go with fish oil, however I would include both as mentioned above about including ground flaxseed with yogurt or in a shake.

Other sources of omega 3 fats are: fatty fish (such as salmon, anchovies, sardines, mackeral), nuts (particularly walnuts), krill oil.

Vitamin D is THAT Important...Start Now

I posted about a week ago about the importance of Vitamin D (in fact its not even considered a vitamin anymore but a hormone, that's how important it is) and how most, if not everyone, are deficient in vitamin D.

I just read a recent blog post from a colleague of mine in the fitness industry, Tony Gentilcore, and he talks about a recent study done on vitamin D and how we need more of it than we think.

Vitamin D=The He-Man of Supplementation
by Tony Gentilcore

I know, I know, I must sound like a broken record with the vitamin D talk yet again. But I thought I would pass this along to all of you because I thought it was interesting.

From Reuters Health:

Giving school children very high doses of vitamin D is safe, and may be necessary to bring their blood levels of the nutrient up to the amount necessary for optimum bone growth and health, a new study shows.

It’s been fairly well established in the literature (especially within the past 1-2 years) that vitamin D supplementation in adults is perfectly safe, and to a degree, almost mandatory. With a plethora of health benefits such as improved bone strength/bone mass, increases in lean muscle gain, improved cardiovascular health, improved blood pressure, improved sense of well-being (it’s no coincidence that we tend to feel down in the dumps during the winter months), and improved immune function.

In a previous study, Fuleihan and colleagues found that giving 10- to 17-year-olds relatively high doses of vitamin D3 increased their bone mass and bone area, as well as lean mass. In the current study, they report on both the short- and long-term safety of high-dose supplementation.

You can read the article (link above), but I’ll summarize the results of the new study:

***Currently, the Institute of Medicine recommends 200 IU of D3 daily for children. In the current study, the high dose was 2,000 IU daily. Or what I like to call, “lets see what happens.”

Short-term study: 25 school children took either a placebo or 14,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D3 per week for eight weeks. Levels of the vitamin in children treated short-term rose from 44 to 54 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL).

Long-term study: 340 participants took either a placebo, 1,400 IU weekly, or 14,000 IU weekly of vitamin D3, and were followed up at six and twelve months. In the long-term study, levels rose from 15 to 19 ng/mL in children given 1,400 IU weekly and from 15 to 36 ng/mL in the higher-dose group. And no one grew a third head or developed some crazy mutant power.

Of course one could argue (ie: me) that vitamin D supplementation wouldn’t even be an issue if kids would actually go outside for a change, rather than spend their free time on the internet or playing Rock Band.

Tyron's comments:

So put down the remote, get off the couch and get outside in the sun and get your vitamin D!...or if you want to watch TV guilt-free, take a 2000 IU of vitamin D3 per day...this is what I'm going to do...hehe don't tell my trainer...oh wait, that's me...

Foods and Conditions That Elevate High Cholesterol Levels

I just recently saw an interview with Dr. Eric Braverman, a medical doctor who's had some pretty amazing results with his patients.

He reported in the interview that out of the 10,000 patients he has worked with, he has been able to restore to health, patients who came in needing bypass surgery but through his help have not needed it.

In one of his books, The Amazing Way to Reverse Heart Disease Naturally, he mentions the following foods and conditions that contribute the most to high cholesterol levels.

1. Amino Acid deficiency caused by poor quality protein intake.

As my clients know, I strongly encourage eating high quality protein at least every 4 hours.

2. Antioxidant deficiency (vitamins C, E, selenium, zinc) caused by low intake of fruits and vegetables.

On top of eating protein every 4 hours, every body no matter what their health goals are should eat 1 cup of vegetables at least 3 times per day.

3. Deficiency in biotin and carnitine (substances related to the B vitamins) caused by processing of whole grains.

Consuming foods in their whole form is one of the best things you can do for your health. For 2 weeks try not eating anything that's refined or processed and see how you feel.

4. Essential fatty acid deficiency caused by poor quality fat intake

The number 1 supplement I recommend everyone take is a high quality fish oil supplement. No matter what your goals are, this is a must.

5. Excess alcohol intake

Apart from destroying your health, it greatly affects your ability to lose body fat particularly around the midsection.

6. Excess hydrogenated or processed fat intake (lard, shortening, cottonseed oil, margarine, and others) found in many refined processed foods.

Again, if you can do the test and stick with eating whole foods that are not processed you'll avoid most if not all of these dangerous fats and oils.

7. Excess starch intake (corn, white potatoes, and others)

From what I teach clients, its not that these foods are bad in and of themselves, just consume them at the right time and your health and the way you look will be fine. Remember: timing is key with these foods.

8. Excess sugar intake found in many refined processed foods.

Many packaged foods have sugar in them even if its not listed as sugar. It may say "sucrose", "maltose", "glucose", etc. Anything that ends in "ose" is a sugar. Don't let them fool you.

9. Fibre deficiency caused by low intake of fruits and vegetables.

Solved by eating 1 cup of vegetables at least 3 times per day. Toss in a piece of fruit here and there and you'll be laughing.

10. Food allergies.

11. Hormone deficiencies (testosterone, DHEA, estrogen, growth hormone, and others)

Particularly as people age their hormone levels drop thus making them more susceptible to higher cholesterol as these hormones help control cholesterol levels. To boost up your hormones naturally, begin an exercise program. At Get Results Boot Camp we're offering 2 weeks FREE so come and check it out!

12. Liver dysfunction.

13. Increased tissue damage due to infection, radiation, impaired liver function, or oxidative activity.

So there you have it, 13 foods and conditions that contribute the most to high cholesterol levels. Start making changes today.

Exercise Alone WON'T Work

Still not convinced?

Need further proof?

Dr. John Berardi of www.PrecisionNutrition.com provides it.

Read what he has to say below.

"Exercise Alone Doesn't Work"
by Dr. John Berardi

The Texas Study
In a study I recently worked on at the University of Texas, nearly 100 initially sedentary participants either stayed sedentary (about half of them) OR began exercising (the other half).

They exercisers were given a program to follow that added up to about 5 1/2 to 6 hours of activity per week and that lasted for a total of 12 weeks. The non-exercisers did nothing for the 12 weeks except show up for measurement sessions.

These individuals, as stated above, did no exercise before the study began. As a result of this sedentary lifestyle, they averaged between 35% and 40% body fat (according to DEXA scans).

Once the study began, the training group gathered together for 3 weight training sessions per week and 2 group exercise / interval sessions per week. All the training was designed by myself and overseen by a weightlifting coach and group exercise coach. So there was a pretty high level of quality control there.

Now, it's important to note that we didn't alter the participant's eating at all. And we did this on purpose. We wanted to test the effects of exercise alone - without diet. In other words, the question became:
"Without a dietary intervention, can exercise alone reshape a person's body?"
At the end of the 12 week study, we got our answer:
"Not so much..."
That's right, when analyzing the data, I was shocked to find that even with 3+ hours of training per week with a weightlifting coach and 2+ hours of training per week with a body-weight circuit instructor didn't really work. The formerly sedentary participants didn't do much better than their couch-sitting counterparts.

That's right, without dietary control, 12 weeks of high intensity training produced a fairly disappointing 1% loss of body fat. In terms of raw data, the participants lost only 1 pound of fat and gained 2 pounds of lean vs. the placebo group.

Frankly, that sucks.

What does other research say. With a new sense of purpose, I started digging around in the research. And I quickly found another recent study suggesting the exact same thing.

This study, published in the April 2008 issue of Nutrition and Metabolism, demonstrated that after 10 weeks of training (3 endurance sessions and 2 strength sessions per week - the flip flop of our study), 38 previously overweight, sedentary subjects also saw minimal changes in body composition with training.

Body Weight -

In this study, neither the control (no exercise) group or the exercise group significantly changed their body weight. Both groups saw about a 0.6lb loss in body weight on average. But again, neither change was significant.

Fat Mass -
When it came to fat mass, the exercise group lost 2.4lbs while the control group lost 0.9lbs. This means that the 50 exercise sessions lead to a mere 1.5lb fat loss vs doing nothing. Better than a kick in the teeth, I guess. But not all that stellar.

Lean Mass -
The exercise group grained 1.7lbs of lean mass while the control group gained 0.2lbs of lean mass. This means that the 50 exercise sessions led to a 1.5lb gain in lean mass vs doing nothing at all. Again, not bad. But not great either.

In this study, there was actually a 3rd group. And this group, in addition to exercising, supplemented each day with 2 nutrient-dense meal replacement supplements. Each supplement contained 300 calories, 5g fat, 25g carbs, and 40g protein and a host of vitamins and minerals. And while the exercise-only group saw small fat losses and muscle gains, the exercise plus supplement group, was a different story.
Body Weight -
The exercise+supplement group lost 4lbs of total body weight. This compared to the 0.6lbs lost in the exercise alone group.

Fat Mass -
The exercise+supplement group also lost 6lbs of total body fat. This compared to the 2.4lbs lost in the exercise alone group.

Lean Mass -
The exercise+supplement group gained about 1.8lbs of total lean body mass. This compared to the 1.7lb gained in the exercise alone group.
So, as you can see, even something as simple as adding a high quality protein drink can improve fat loss vs. exercise alone.

But, again, nothing is as effective as following a solid nutrition program while exercising properly.

For you folks who are looking to look better, feel better, and perform at the top of your game, the lesson should be obvious.

You can train as hard as you want. However, without some attention to your nutritional intake, you simply can't expect inspiring, noticeable results.

How To GAIN Body Fat While Exercising 14 Hours Per Week

No that's not a typo.

You read that correctly.

How can that be you may be asking.

Dr. John Berardi of www.PrecisionNutrition.com explains below.

Now if this doesn't change what you do nutritionally, I wonder what will.

How To Gain Body Fat
While Exercising 14 Hours A Week

by John Berardi, PhD, CSCS

Exercise Without Diet
A few weeks back I shared with you an article called "When Exercise Doesn't Work."

And in this article, I reviewed some fascinating new research demonstrating that, without a dietary intervention, exercise doesn't have much of an impact on body composition.

Even to the tune of 6 hours per week...

Even when it's high intensity exercise....

...participants following an exercise plan, without being cognizant of their nutritional intake, only tend to lose an extra pound of fat vs. those folks who do nothing for the same 12-16 weeks.

Disheartening, I know.

But oh so true.

Especially when supported by this new information I'm going to share with you today.

More Support For the "No Diet Hypothesis"
Just yesterday, I received an interesting email from Dr Gary Homann, a faculty member at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO.

(Some of you may recall that we collaborated with Dr Homann a few years back and came up with some interesting insights, spotlighted here: Long Haul Training)

Gary, intrigued by my last article, shared with me the results from a very telling study he completed back in 2003. Here's what he found.

2 Hours a Day and They Still Got Fatter!
In Dr Homann's study, 56 girls between the ages of 14 and 17 - all of whom were in a program run by the South Dakota Department of Corrections - volunteered to get involved in a 4-6 month wellness program.

The idea was to have the girls exercise for about 14 hours per week (2 hours per day consisting of various activities such as hiking, running, circuit training, step aerobics and basketball) while following the USDA Food Guide, as it appeared in 2003.

At the beginning of the study and again at the end, a host of measures were recorded, including:
A step test and timed mile for cardiovascular fitness

Height, weight, body mass index (BMI), skinfolds (for % body fat), waist and hips circumference for body composition

Shuttle run for agility

Standing jump, sit-ups and bench press test for muscular strength and endurance

And sit-and-reach and straddle tests for flexibility
So, what happened?

Well, as expected, cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, agility, and flexibility all improved. That's great!

What's not so great is that body composition measures worsened.

Instead of losing body weight and fat, these girls, on average, gained 6lbs, increased their waist circumference by 1/2 and inch, increased their hip circumference by 3/4 of an inch, and increased their body fat by over 1/2 a percentage point.

Now, I don't know about you.

But this isn't exactly what I'd expect to happen if I went on a 14 hour per week exercise binge!

The USDA Food Pyramid circa 2003
(note: the pyramid has since been updated...thank god!

Exercise + The Food Pyramid
As you'd imagine, I'm kinda disappointed to learn that it's actually possible to gain body fat when exercising 2 hours per day, every single day. You're probably disappointed too.

However, what's even more disappointing is the fact that it's possible while actually following a nutrition plan!

Remember, participants in this study were following the recommendations of the USDA - you know, that famous food pyramid that everyone talks about. The one that dietitians across the land recommend that we follow. The one recommending 6-11 servings of breads, cereals, and pastas each day.
(Now, it is true that the USDA has since changed their recommendations - for the better. But can you blame me if I'm a little gun shy on backing their new recommendations? Especially after the checkered history of the last food pyramid?)
Now, you might have some questions about the study design...as I did when first reading it.
After all, maybe the girls didn't follow the USDA plan to a "T"...

Or maybe they were going thru puberty at the time of the study and that explains the fat gain...

Or maybe being put in a detention center isn't exactly condusive to fat loss in the first place.
Well, after speaking with Dr Homann, I'm pretty confident that these factors can't really explain away the fact that these girls exercised for 2 hours every single day, while following the USDA's guidelines, and got fatter.
For starters, the girls were living in a detention center and they were provided all their meals. So there wasn't much room to cheat.

Further, the girls were starting out quite over fat. Indeed, their average body fat was just over 30% to begin with. So they did have fat to lose. And their fat gain can't be explained by simply "getting older" or "puberty".
Let's Bottom Line This
I could probably go on and on here...but I'll spare you that. Instead, I'd like to simply say the following.

The data are pouring in.

And they paint a pretty clear picture. If you want to look better, feel better, and perform at the top of your game, you definitely have to exercise...(although 14 hours a week probably isn't necessary).

But, even more importantly, you've got to look after your nutrition - specifically what you eat, how much you eat, and when you eat it.

Indeed, without the right nutritional intake, you simply can't expect inspiring, noticeable results. Heck, in some cases, you might even expect to get worse!

So don't leave your nutrition up to chance.

Got Back Pain? Then Stop Stretching Your Back!

A colleague of mine recently wrote about the correlation of lumbar spine stretching to low back pain and I thought it would be of interest to you.*

If you currently have back pain, have had it, or know of someone that has it, this is a must read. (That probably covers 99% of the population).

The lumbar spine isn't meant for excessive range of motion. Period.

So what's with all the excessive lumbar (lower) spine stretching that most gym goers do before and after exercise?

If you look at the research (specifically by that of Porterfield and DeRosa, and even more so by the work of Shirley Sahrmann), it's clear that there's roughly five to seven degrees of "acceptable" rotation between S1-L5, and one degree of rotation (each), from L4-L1; for a grand total of roughly 13 degrees of rotation.

Yet, watch many people "stretch" their backs, and they're getting way more than that and thinking it's healthy.

Isn't it quite coincidental that a vast percentage of lower back issues arise in S1-L5, yet this is the area that people stretch the most?

I have helped clients either completely eliminated or significantly reduce their lower back pain by just getting them to stop stretching their lower backs!

I'm specifically thinking of two clients right now.

This is usually more true of women because of their small amount of muscle mass (which helps stabilize the spinal column) and their interest in yoga and other flexibility-like activities.

It would be good if people would get away from thinking that lumbar range of motion is indicative of overall spinal health. It's not!

Certainly there are exceptions to the rule, but I feel that the vast majority of people who suffer from low back pain would be wise to stop stretching their lumbar spine and start focusing more on spinal stability.

In a future newsletter I'm considering including a video of stretches you should and should NOT do for your back.

In the meantime, please avoid any stretches that cause rotation or twisting in the lumber (low) spine. This will make a huge difference.


p.s. Remember to claim your 2 weeks fr.ee to my Get Results Boot Camp before this offer disappears.

You'll learn specific core strengthening exercises that help strengthen and create stability in the low back...and it's not sit-ups and crunches. (When those two are done excessively, as is usually the case, they can actually perpetuate the problem as opposed to fixing it even though you are "working" the core.

Why waste time in the gym month after month not getting the results you really want. Come out to boot camp and get results results in a fraction of the time.

Camp is open to all ages and fitness levels. Sessions can be tailored to your fitness level and ability.

Are You Sabotaging Your Fat Loss Efforts?

Do you want to know one of the best things you can do to kick start you losing weight WITHOUT even exercising?

It's really easy.

Do you want to know?

If so, then...

...Ditch ALL calorie containing drinks (including fruit juice).

In fact, all of your drinks should come from non-calorie (zero) containing beverages. Fruit juice, alcoholic drinks, and sodas - these are all to be removed from your daily fare. Your absolute best choices are filtered water and green, black, white, or herbal teas. The few exceptions to this rule are protein shakes and workout drinks. Water consumption should equal half your bodyweight in ounces per day.

Start today...don't wait until the weekend, do it now.

If you start implementing that simple rule today, think of how many calories your body WON'T have to struggle to work off.

If you are currently having 1 Starbucks Latte on work days, that amounts to 190 calories per drink and 950 calories per 5 day work week. Think about how much easier it would be to drop that weight you've been wanting to drop for some time now by just cutting out 1 drink per day!

And to think most people aren't just having 1 Latte a day but are also consuming a pop or two, a glass of fruit juice (which really isn't good for your health and is in fact making it harder for your body to lose weight as it's essentially just sugar water), and not to mention a glass of wine or beer at night.

Now think how many extra calories that would be on top of the 950 from the Lattes.

We gotta start giving our bodies a fighting chance.

Not convinced? Do a 2 week challenge and see if you don't feel better and have your clothes fit better. At the 2 week mark, I'd love to hear from you and the changes you've seen.


Do you want to add exercise to cutting out calorie drinks and slim down even more, lose unwanted belly fa.t and melt away those troubling
fa.t spots?

Then come out to Get Results Boot Camp and get your 1st 2 weeks

And to make it even sweeter, you'll get an additional 2 weeks
FR.EEwhen you bring a friend, family member, or coworker that signs
up for an entire 4-week camp.

Not bad eh?

My next boot camp begins today Wednesday September 10. It runs for 4
weeks until Friday October 3, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
evening from 7:15-8:00pm at the BFit Personal Training Studio
(across the street from the North Shore Auto Mall).

Send me an email at TyronPiteau@gmail.com or call me at
604.626.2342 to reserve your spot!

Visit www.MakersBody.com/BootCamp.html for more information.

Also, if you wanted to see what sorts of things we do in the camp,
feel free to check out the videos HERE (however try not to laugh!).
I know you'll enjoy them.

Have a great weekend and hopefully I'll see you out tonight Wednesday
September 10 for your 2 weeks FR.EE.

Read what sort of results you can get if you come:

"Starting boot camp on June 19 '07, I was challenging myself to see
and feel some good results. I took a before picture and weighed
myself just for fun. Not even two full weeks into the camp and I've
lost 15lbs. It is now Aug 10 '07 I've completed 7 weeks of Bootcamp
and have lost a total of 20lbs and gone down 2 sizes in my clothes.
I have always wanted to train in this way but I never knew how. In
this Bootcamp I am able to push myself or take it easy it's up to
me but the fact that it's only 45 minutes makes it easier to really
push myself and there is so much variety that you almost forget
that your working so hard. I have experienced such great results in
such a short period of time, I encourage anyone that is discouraged
with their exercise program and wants to have some fun and
challenge themselves to come and join in on the camp - you'll love
it." - Jodi Hearn

"I'm in my second round of boot camp. I've had a great time. The

10 pounds and 1 pant size!" - Julie Hirst

"I have lost a lot of inches since the beginning of the bootcamp,
most of them after I started the nutrition plan. It's fantastic! I

all the fat. I feel great and I have a lot of energy. My weight
also dropped by 6 pounds since the beginning of the nutrition plan.
