My Lifesaver: FitOrganix

My Lifesaver: FitOrganix

Recently I was forced to assess my workload and come up with solutions to always feeling behind. Sometimes we have to restrict or scale down some passionate intent, when it can (over time) develop into wildfire. I don’t know a soul who’s never gotten carried away by something (or someone) they love. Organization is the ultimate key to success, no matter what one seeks efficiency in. Both lifestyle and business can see a complete nosedive or burnout with a lack of organization, OR, a well-fueled and completely sustainable strong machine, with its appropriate application. Sustainability is as important a concept to pay mind to in life as it is in our food. The...

Saghi: My List of Challenges

Saghi: My List of Challenges

I have had many challenges this past week! Number one challenge: Cravings. I was craving cookies, cupcakes, and whatever heavy and unhealthy snacks I could find. All I could think about was food. I looked up “ways to control cravings” but of course some of the tips that came up were unrealistic and unhealthy. Jess suggested I distract myself, so I did just that. I distracted myself with wedding planning, looking up healthy recipes, and online “window shopping”, I needed to change my focus and I needed to do it fast! It worked and a day later I was refocused and fully in control of my diet. Challenge number two: Winterlicious. Noah and I booked 3...

The Final Stretch in Fat Loss

So, you’ve wrestled with your psyche, you’ve shoved temptation away, you’ve held true to your guns while watching your friends chow nachos and chug pints like it was going out of style. Congratulations! You’ve lost a ton of weight! But, eek – here’s the hard part… now what? There are two answers to the question of what one’s nutrition plan or diet should look like after a successful weight loss.  First, we will discuss balance, and the difference between losing fat in a sustainable way, and losing it with quick and desperate methods. If this is redundant, I apologize.  Staples of general wellness and being low in excess body fat are always the same, and...

Ryan: Back in the Saddle

Ryan: Back in the Saddle

Back in the saddle again… Well, after a brief hiatus, Jessica and I are back at it. This past Sunday Jessica whooped me – she whooped me good. Unfortunately, these past two weeks were impossible to get any strength workouts in with Jessica. I was moving out of my 900 square foot King West loft and into a 6 by 10 windowless bedroom in Parkdale (with 3 roommates). The situation was a bit stressful to manage, and all in all took about 2 weeks to sort out. But after the initial shock of giving up my lavish lifestyle, I am now set up with some awesome new roommates and am ready to re-engage in my strength program with Jess. Unfortunately, the absence of my cooking...

My Favourite Summer Meals

My Favourite Summer Meals

When the weather warms up, we subconsciously reach for foods that are more hydrating, lighter and cooler. Here are my favourite go-to snacks and meals for when the weather is hot and we don’t feel like lighting a stove. Breakfast: 1/2-1 cup of fresh berries poured in a half cup of greek nonfat yogurt I like to sprinkle in some bran buds or some element of starch. Mid Morning Snack: 1 apple 1 tbsp natural peanut butter Lunch: Lettuce roll-ups are a fresh, clean way to get in a complete protein and some extra greens. Use romaine instead of leaf lettuce for extra nutritional benefits, and have some fresh, raw vegetables on the side. I eat about 3 leaves stuffed...
