Shocking Top Protein Food (with recipes!)

For those who know me, they know I am FAR from handy. I’m not afraid to admit it.  I wish I had some more basic skills in the "handiness" area, but I don’t.  My dad is super handy.  He’s done electric, helped build their deck, crown molding, the stone wall on the back of their fireplace, tiling … you name it, he can do it.  That just didn’t get passed down to me. The kitchen is where I’m most comfortable.  Our Shun knives are like my hammer and nails. Anyhow, my Uncle Mark is also very handy — he’s actually in th…

My HUGE Mistake Can SAVE You…

I almost lost at my own game. This is serious, but my mistake can REALLY help you! I was traveling in Orlando FL for some talks. I always plan and pack well – mixed nuts, some portable fruit, packets of salmon, etc.  But this trip is a bit different — I knew the setup, where I was speaking, and I’d have some great food at my fingertips whenever I wanted. So I didn’t plan like I usually do — just some basics. And it came back to bite me.  I’m on the way home yesterday and was pretty hungry.  Fortunately it’s a decent size airport with some solid…

F.O.C.U.S.

Wow, lots of interest and "FB likes" to our post the other day regarding our blog last week suggesting people "stop thinking" to change body composition. Here’s another piece to this puzzle.  But it may upset some people. Ready?  We don’t care what type of nutrition plan you follow … Paleo Diet, Low fat, Low Carb, Raw foods, etc. We care that you stick to it. There’s an acronym we use when sharing this with people: Follow One Course Until Successful  We’re not saying there are not better approaches and worse ones for long t…

Is Weight Watchers the BEST Way to Lose Weight?

Weight Watchers is the BEST Way to Lose Weight… …at least according to a recent study in the journal Lancet. Basically the study separated subjects into two groups — one group who followed the Weight Watchers plan with weekly meetings or the other group who met once monthly with their primary care MD.  What they found after 12 months was that the group following the Weight Watchers plan lost 11.1 lbs compared to the 5 who met with their MD’s.  Few things here. Regardless of which "plan" was best, 11.1 lbs in 1 year isn’t impressive.  T…

The Human Fat Loss GPS

I was driving the other day to meet with a company we work with — heading to Nashville TN.  It’s a straight drive from Louisville…except when there is construction and some areas of the highway are closed to 1 lane and there’s instead a TON of traffic. Fortunately the GPS then offered a detour telling me that there was traffic ahead.  It’s smart like that. Usually. For those who have them, it also tells you when you make a wrong turn that you need to make a U turn to get back on track. And it got me thinking.  Wouldn’t it be cool if our bodies inher…

Peeling Back the Wrappers of Energy Bars

I was recently on the road — up in Saskatoon Canada to learn all about canola oil (the majority of it is grown in that region).  Whenever we’re on the road, we always plan ahead and pack easy, portable foods — nuts, packets of salmon, durable fruit, etc.  But if in a major pinch, sometimes a bar will be the best option if the others aren’t around.  The question, then, is WHAT bar do you pick?  And what do you look for when picking a bar?  Do you look at the ingredients?  Protein content?  Flavor? Well, regardless of what you look for, th…

10 ‘Commandments’ of Fat Loss

Hope you had a fantastic weekend. Over at the Team Mohr HQ we were in full birthday mode … with back to back birthdays for Kara and Ella.  Of course no birthday is complete without cake, so we certainly had our share this weekend — from a homemade Elmo Cake for Ella (we even figured out how to create the colors with natural food dyes vs. dangerous artificial food dyes) to a Burnt Almond Torte shipped from Pittsburgh for Kara (it’s her favorite, so fortunately the bakery that makes them ships too!) Both were hits … and Ella told us the Elmo Cake was her favorite part of the…

Obesity = Lower Productivity

We’re always talking about strategies to help with fat loss — from nutrition to training to behavioral modifications.  Well, here’s just one of the many reasons we’re fighting so hard to help people get their weight under control … Being overweight and obese aren’t just bad for your health, another study just came out showing being obese may make it harder to do your job. Researchers surveyed nearly 11,000 employees at 49 different companies. Compared to those who were "normal weight," the obese workers in the study were 66% more lik…

Is Your Workout Making You Fat?

You workout. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. Yet the scale doesn’t budge.  In fact, your jeans are getting a little tighter … ugggg, not really what the goal was, is it? This all came about from a conversation with a woman in our Mohr Results Boot Camp recently.  She was looking to lose belly fat and wanted a flatter stomach.  And, she said, an added perk would be if she can FINALLY fit into her skinny jeans. She was coming to boot camp 5 days/week.  Hoping THIS was the answer to lose weight.  Unfortunately, to her dissapointment the scale w…
