Understanding Blood Sugar and Health

Recently my clients and I were talking about doing a 30-day "no sugar, no alcohol" regimen to help control our blood sugar levels. I found this amazing TED talk online. You should take 15 minutes to listen--the premise is fascinating.

What Peter Attia is suggesting is that maybe high blood sugar and hormonal imbalances create the propensity for diabetes which then results in obesity, and not the other way around.

A Tribute to RU

I wanted to post a special note to say thank you and good bye to a great friend and longtime boot camper, Rebecca Uusitalo (RU).  Sadly RU will be moving over to the Eastside and out of boot camp range and we will miss her dearly.   One of the great joys of my job is having the opportunity to work with truly amazing people…..I think anyone who has ever taken my boot camp class would agree that RU is one of those special people.


Great job to my clients and boot campers this week. It is Week 2 of January 2013 camp.....It's all down hill from here.  I kid..... I kid.  We know that there will be some up and down hill (and maybe some suicide stairs and sixers in between).  Well speaking of January.
