How do I know Mike?  He has been in my life since December of 2006 and my personal fitness trainer for several years.  During this time I’ve been through some life changes; some changes positive, others, let’s just call challenging.  A few months ago, Mike mentioned that I am “interesting” – hmmm, was that a […]

January 1st, 2011 (No Comments)

Although it is good practice to avoid sugar in the general diet, these high-glycemic carbohydrates provide the optimal substrate in a post-workout meal to restore glycogen (lost energy reserves) and maximize insulin response.
