The Power Of The Mind: How To Train Yourself To be More Successful    "There is a wealth of information at our disposal today on the latest discoveries in brain science. While we enjoy reading about these findings and expanding our intellect, how many of us actually apply these concepts?

This article offers several important tips based on discoveries in brain research that can help us improve our personal and professional lives, as well as help others in our sphere of influence."Bruna Martinuzzi for Open Forum


John Berardi's Great Fasting Experiment     "Things have gotten really interesting lately, as bodybuilders have started to hop on the rapidly growing fasting bandwagon. For those committed to getting big and jacked, fasting seems ill advised to say the least.

Bodybuilding diets typically feature multiple meals spread throughout the day. This, the experts argue, not only manages hunger better, it keeps the metabolism "stoked" while not overloading the digestive system.

One of these multiple meal advocates has been Dr. John Berardi, but lately JB, as we like to call him, has had a change of heart. He's been checking fasting out, flirting with her, sending her texts, even rustled up the courage to ask her out on a date, just to see what all the fuss was about. And his results might surprise you."—–Bryan Krahn for TNation.com

Dr. John Berardi is no stranger to the strength, athletic training and nutrition communities for quite a while.  Berardi is the founder of Precision Nutrition.com and he has presented a lecture at CrossFit Marina in Huntington Beach, California.  Sections of the lecture are featured in the CrossFit Journal titled Knowing Vs. Doing-Nutritional Coaching With Dr. John Berardi ,but you need to be a subscriber to get access.

The above interview with Dr. John Berardi is very informative on the the topic of Intermittent Fasting.  If your curiosity is piqued check out Leangains.com, the website of Martin Berkhan.  Berkhan has been at the Intermittent Fasting game for some time with excellent results for himself and his clients.  Leangains.com is the best resource we know of for IF.  Must reading from Leangains is:  Top Ten Fasting Myths Debunked.  In fact, this article is too informative not to read–even if you have no interest in any type of fasting!
