The Truth about Holiday Weight Gain

Millions of Americans will once again gain those extra lb.s over the holidays.

For many it’s an expected gain that comes along with the season. "Oh I always pack on a few winter pounds."

It seems almost American that we overeat too often and exercise too little this time of the year. Between holiday parties or colder weather the motivation to workout becomes smaller and less frequent. The excuses become easy to find and then we start packing layers of clothes on to hide the fact that we are neglecting our bodies. The mentality is, "I'll worry about it in the new year."

While the holiday weight gain is not always dramatic, getting rid off the extra pounds afterwards can be a real challenge.

“Americans probably gain only a pound ...

Keep Burning

Keep Burning!

This is the motto for the Orange Theory gyms popping up all around us.

Seems like a great marketing tactic. Isn’t that what you are seeking?

The ultimate calorie burn?!

Most think that this is what it’s all about. “The more I burn the faster I will lose weight.”

What if I told you this is deception that has been planted into your brain?

A fitness club will say anything to get you in the door of their club.

Now if you are choosing to exercise then I say great job! Doesn’t matter how you get your exercise just do it! However, you should understand the science behind exercise and diet and how these scales balance or outweigh one another to create or inhibit a result or change in your body and ult...

The Art of Losing FAT, Honestly

I have owned CRAVEPT for a little over 5 years now.

When a client steps on a scale they are instantly discouraged if the number they had in their head doesn’t show up. But where does this number come from?

Is their expectation ever realistic?

What I try to educate my clients about are the REAL numbers.

Stepping on a scale isn’t just spitting out your pounds in FAT.

Your total body weight is made up of fluctuating numbers

1) muscle

2) bone

3) organs

4) fluids (including blood)

5) body fat

6) waste inside your digestive tract

7) glycogen (the form of carbohydrate you stock away for fuel).

So, the next time you step on the scale consider that the number you see may vary based on fluctuations in the amount of water in your body,...

The Dedication it takes by Linda Melcher

We asked Linda Melcher, our second LEVEL 7 in the gym (client) what it took for her to not only pass but excel and impress on her recent Fitranx Test so we could share this knowledge onto you.

We want all clients striving for that coveted spot on the leader board to understand what it took for her to master level 7.

Here is what she had to say:

"I've been involved with the Fitranx program for about one year working thru the the levels.

I focused specifically for testing level 7 for a 5 week period.

This training included; personal training with Nathan 3 hours per week (focusing on the concepts) and then boot camp classes and small group classes 7 hours per week.

I try to work out everyday incorporating strength training and cardio workouts. I...

I'm telling you that you can!

Why being a Nutrition Coach was not a choice!

The last year I have worked towards the solution for the problem I was seeing daily.

People do not know what to eat. Paleo, low carb, high fat, how much protein, what is healthy and what is going to get me muscle or get me thin? I noticed that my clients were constantly being fed misleading information and beocming exceedingly more frustrated with their progress because as hard as they tried they were not reaching their goals.

Too many people in our community and the US are overweight. Not only do we dislike our bodies but we are shaving years off our lives. The harsh reality; people are killing themselves.

Being partnered up with Healthy Body Nutrition was the obvious answer. Becoming a client...

A Successful Routine

So I got a chance to sit down and talk to one of our most dedicated members, Dr. Jonathan Ford about his journey here to Crave and about being an HB local. I was excited to share the story he told because I think many people can take from it. I see members come and go. Some achieve more than they set out and some fall short, to be honest.

Recently Jonathan has been on fire in the gym and passed his level 4 Fitranx Test like a true champion and it made me curious....why the change now? Here is his story!

Tell us how you came to be a dentist and small business owner?

I always wanted to work in the medical industry. I had family members who worked in medicine and also members who were dentist. I also wanted to run my own small business. Med...
