Ranger Joes God and Country Talk Show


So I've been on the Ranger Joe's God and Country Radio Talk Show on 1420AM for three weeks now. 
It is a Christian based, Pro-American, Pro-Veteran talk show that has a variety of guests on each week.

Every Tuesday at 2pm I go on air with the host Joe and we talk about weight loss, health and fitness. I'm usually on there 2-3 hours. We talk about different topics each week and I try to dispel the common myths and educate people on what really works.

If you are within the listening area, tune in if you get a chance. You can call in and ask questions and discuss important topics related to health, wellness and fitness. Callers usually receive a prize from me like a $50 gift card for training or a T-shirt.

Check it out if you can and let me know what you think.

Trap Bar Deadlifts and Kettlebell Snatches - Wednesday Night Workout



The Wednesday night workout consisted of trap bar block pull deadlifts with 405lbs and high rep kettlebell snatches.

My old lower back injury, dictates how many reps I get, so I didn't do as many as I could have on the trap bar. But it was still sufficient for a good workout.

The kettlebell snatches were light with higher reps as I was following up the heavier trap bar deadlifts with lighter, faster metabolic conditioning/resistance work.


The simple training concept that I use is heavier and slower first, followed by lighter and faster. This allows you to work power and strength and then transition to finish with endurance and conditioning in the same workout. Simple and effective.

Chicken Breasts and vegetables

Dinner: baked chicken breasts, sweet potato, peppers, onions, cauliflower, broccoli and extra virgin olive oil.   #nutrition

This was Tuesday's big meal. It consisted of baked chicken breasts, sweet potato, peppers, onions, broccoli, cauliflower and extra virgin olive oil.

The recipe didn't require any precise measurements. I just threw 4 chicken breasts in the pan, cut up a sweet potato and threw in a handful of sliced green, red and orange peppers,onions, cauliflower and broccoli. 

I baked it at 400 degrees for 1 hr, 25 min and then covered it all in extra virgin olive oil. And then I ate it all like a ravenous beast. Pretty simple.

Type 2 Diabetes Facts and Figures

















What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in
insulin production, insulin action, or both. Diabetes can lead to serious complications and
premature death, but people with diabetes can take steps to control the disease and lower the risk
of complications.

SOURCE: National Diabetes Education Program, Snapshot of Diabetes, Retrieved on February 18, 2014, from, http://ndep.nih.gov/media/fs_gensnapshot.pdf

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease. In type 2 diabetes, either your body
does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. This is called insulin resistance.
Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. When you eat food, the
body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells
in the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cell, it can cause two problems:

• Right away, your cells may be starved for energy.
• Over time, high blood glucose levels may hurt your eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart.
Some groups have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is
more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans/Pacific
Islanders, as well as the aged population.

SOURCE: American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Basics – Facts About Type 2, Retrieved on February 18, 2014, from, http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/type-2/

Current Facts & Figures

• 25.8 million Americans have diabetes – 8.3% of the U.S. population. Of these, 7 million
do not know they have the disease.
• 215,000 Americans younger than 20 have been diagnosed with diabetes. Most cases of
diabetes among children and adolescents are type 1.
• The number of people diagnosed with diabetes has risen from 1.5 million in 1958 to 18.8
million in 2010, an increase of epidemic proportions.
• It is estimated that 79 million adults aged 20 and older have pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes is
a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be
called diabetes. Studies have shown that by losing weight and increasing physical activity
people can prevent or delay pre-diabetes from progressing to diabetes.
• Type 1 (previously called insulin-dependent or juvenile-onset) diabetes accounts for
approximately 5% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes in adults.
Type 2 (previously called non-insulin-dependent or adult-onset) diabetes accounts for
90% to 95% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes in adults. Type 2 diabetes is increasingly
being diagnosed in children and adolescents.
• Gestational diabetes occurs in 2% to 10% of pregnancies. Women who have had
gestational diabetes have a 35% to 60% chance of developing diabetes, most type 2, in
the next 10-20 years.
• Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates.
• Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among people with diabetes – about
68% die of heart disease or stroke.
• Total health care and related costs for the treatment of diabetes run about $174 billion
annually.
SOURCE: National Diabetes Education Program, Snapshot of Diabetes, Retrieved on February 18, 2014, from, http://ndep.nih.gov/media/fs_gensnapshot.pdf

Warning Signs & Symptoms

Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications
of diabetes. The following symptoms of diabetes are typical. However, some people with type 2
diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed.
Common symptoms of diabetes:
• Urinating often
• Feeling very thirsty
• Feeling very hungry – even though you are eating
• Extreme fatigue
• Blurry vision
• Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
• Weight loss – even though you are eating more (type 1)
• Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet (type 2)
SOURCE: American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Basics – Symptoms, Retrieved on February 18, 2014, from, http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/symptoms/

Complications

Heart disease and stroke

• Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults
without diabetes.
• The risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes.
High blood pressure
• In 2005-2008, of adults aged 20 years or older with self-reported diabetes, 67% had blood
pressure greater than or equal to 140/90 mmHg or used prescription medications for
hypertension.

Blindness

• Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults aged 20-74 years.
• In 2005-2008, 4.2 million (28.5%) people with diabetes aged 40 years or older had
diabetic retinopathy, and of these, almost 0.7 million (4.4% of those with diabetes) had
advanced diabetic retinopathy that could lead to severe vision loss.

Kidney disease

• Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, accounting for 44% of new cases in 2008.
• In 2008, 48, 374 people with diabetes began treatment for end-stage kidney disease in the
United States.
• In 2008, a total of 202, 290 people with end-stage kidney disease due to diabetes were
living on chronic dialysis or with a kidney transplant in the United States.
Nervous system disease (Neuropathy)

• About 60% to 70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nervous system
damage.
Amputation

• More than 60% of nontraumatic lower-limb amputations occur in people with diabetes.
• In 2006, about 65,700 nontraumatic lower-limb amputations were performed in people
with diabetes.

SOURCE: American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Basics –Statistic, Retrieved on February 18, 2014, from, http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/statistics/

Diabetes Prevention

Research studies have found that moderate weight loss and exercise can prevent or delay type 2
diabetes among adults at high-risk of diabetes. The Diabetes Prevent Program (DPP), a major
federally funded study of 3,234 people at high risk for diabetes, showed that people can delay
and possibly prevent the disease by losing a small amount of weight (5% to 7% of total body
weight) through 30 minutes of physical activity 5 days a week and healthier eating.

Anyone aged 45 years or older should consider getting tested for diabetes, especially if you are
overweight. If you are younger than 45, but are overweight and have one or more of the
additional risk factors (see below), you should consider getting tested.

What are the risk factors which increase the likelihood of developing diabetes?
• Being overweight or obese.
• Having a parent, brother, or sister with diabetes.
• Being African American, American Indian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, or
Hispanic American/Latino heritage.
Having a prior history of gestational diabetes or birth of at least one baby weighing more
than 9 pounds.
• Having high blood pressure measuring 140/90 or higher.
• Having abnormal cholesterol where HDL (“good”) cholesterol is 35 or lower, or
triglyceride level is 250 or higher.
• Being physically inactive – exercising fewer than three times a week.

Protein intake is critical in order to reach your fitness goals. Are you eating enough?


Hi, Happy August!
Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am.
Kids going back to school next week! How many moms are excited? :)

I'm still forging ahead in Grad school. Reading endless scientific study after study.

One topic that we had to cover this week, in the nutrition for peak performance course, was protein. All of the studies that I read confirmed what I teach and preach.

Post workout nutrition is critical to receive optimal gains from your workout and that consuming sufficient amounts of protein throughout the day provides optimal results.

The International Society of Sports Nutrition states that exercising individuals’ protein needs are between 1.4
and 2.0 g/kg/day.

The mainstream RDA is .8g of protein per kg of bodyweight. Studies have shown this to be low for active individuals who exercise. It is recommended that active people consume at least 1g of protein per kg of bodyweight. If you train hard then the 1.4g - 2g is a better range.

To figure out your protein needs in grams, google your bodyweight in lbs converted to kg. Example: I google 215lbs = kg and it gives me 97.5kg. I multiply 97.5 x 1.4 for 136g and 97.5 x 2.0 for 195g.

I weigh 215 which is 97.5kg. So I need between 136g to 195g of protein each day, depending on my workout intensity. So a standard chicken breast contains roughly 30g of protein.

So i would need to eat approximately 4.5 chicken breasts to get my 136g of protein or 6.5 chicken breasts to get around 195g of protein. That is a lot of chicken.

Some days I can eat that much and some days it proves to be challenging. On the challenging days, some times I use protein shakes to get in that extra protein.

It is easier (not better) for me to drink protein shakes and eat a couple of chicken breasts, rather than to eat 6 chicken breasts on the challenging days.

So if you need a quality source to get in that extra protein, Here is one of the protein powders that I use, sell and recommend.




Prograde Lean Meal Replacement Shake

And to help you save some cash, while getting a high quality protein source, Prograde is offering you 20% off for a limited time. Simply use the coupon code POWDER20 at checkout.
Prograde Lean

Now if you already have your protein powder of choice, then here are 51 free recipes that you can make, with your protein powder. These recipes can provide variety and give you a break from your standard meat and poultry meals.

So no matter how you do it, you need to get your protein in every day to get fit, healthy and lean. 

Train Hard and Eat Right!
