Tour de Mohr: Insight into the Mohr Results Offices

Time to give a little more insight into life at the Mohr Results Offices with a brief little tour — most of our videos are shot in the office kitchen, but believe it or not, we don't spend all our time there.

Here is a little tour of where we all work … make sure you watch the entire 2 minute video because there is something good at the end!

Here's a little sneak peak into our daily lives at the Mohr Results Offices…

    I would like to know all the Vitamin Supplements we should be taking and how much – like a multi-vitamin, Calcium, D, Fish Oil, etc.
    I know I don't get all the nutrients that I should through food so I want to make sure I remain as healthy as I can be.
     
    Thank you!!!!

      In terms of multi-vitamins, there are VERY few that are properly formulated.  Many have added "extras" that equate to nothing due to an underdosing or inferior forms of minerals, enzymes etc. 
      The Top 3 imo:
      AOR-Orthocore
      Controlled Labs-Orange Triad
      Gaspari- Anavite
      VItamin D3 is a necessity as the body can't produce it on it's own.  I personally use 5000iu in the summer and 10000 in the winter.  Which is 1 and 2 gels respectively.

    I am in the process of losing the last few pounds to reach my goal weight, and I am using a healthy diet and exercise (Boot Camp and training for a half-marathon) to reach my goal.  How many calories/day should I consume to both fuel my body for training/exercising and to lose weight?  What other daily requirements, such as fat grams, fiber, sodium, etc., do I need to pay attention to for training and weight loss?  Thanks so much!

    I have read a lot about nutrition timing, eating certain foods( complex carbs, starchy carbs and others) at certain times of the day. Should starch be eaten early in the day with more protein in later meals? Any information on this would be great.

    How do you calculate daily calorie/fat needs if you want to maintain weight/fat loss?

  5. BEAR March 16, 2010 at 1:08 pm #

    HI MY NAME IS BEAR DO I TAKE MY SUPPLEMENTS BEFORE WORKING OUT OR AFTER OR DOES IT MATTER CAUSE I WORKOUT IN THE MORNING?
     
                                                           Thank u

    To increase fitness level and not just maintain, how often is it necessary to work out, how many days a week and for how long?

  7. Tracy March 16, 2010 at 1:43 pm #

    Hi,  I am wondering how many reps and how many sets I should be doing on my work out machine.  The machine is a BMI and I can't find it online.  It's pretty old.  It has 4 work stations and I am doing the military press, butterfly, arm curls, squats, and one of the stations has bars that you lift yourself up with your forearms and hang there and then bring your legs up, and boy does it ever work my stomach.  Anyhow, I can't find out how many reps and sets I should be doing of each exercise and also how fast or slow should I be doing them?  I also have been doing 3 hours on my stepper just for calorie burn and I am averaging 10,000 steps in the 3 hour period.  I do 30 minutes and then take a break until I get my 3 hours in and I get this done usually by noon.  When winter is over, I wont be doing but 30 minutes a day on the stepper since I grow a huge garden.  I'm in the garden from sunup to sundown, but I want to keep using my machine every other morning.   Thank You,
    Tracy

    I am trying to decide how much exercise in the form of resistance exercise especially should be done with people who are in adrenal fatigue (with a flat line 24 hour four sample cortisol curve). Is the typical 2-3 times per week resistance and 5 times per week cardio too much? I know sleep is important aiming for 8-9 hours per night.  Also curious if you have read anything in the literature about the amount of lean body mass and fat mass with adrenal fatigue. It seems like adrenal fatigued individuals have higher fat mass. Is this purely secondary to poor blood glucose control or something further?  Just curious and looking for answer, opinions or literature.  Thank you!

    Any tips on battling evening munchies? I do fine with breakfast and lunch, but evenings are challenging. Part of it is the end-of-day stress release and part is probably just a bad habit. How can I stay on track all day?

  10. Adam L March 16, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

    You guys have done an AMAZING job covering nutritious, wholesome, real, and good foods and exactly WHAT to eat. Very nice. However, I would love to know the HOW MUCH question!

    A good calculator to determine how many calories to eat in a day?
    How many carbs? fats? Proteins?
    IF goal is: Maintenance, fat loss, or muscle gain, then HOW much?! (Most interested in Muscle gaining)

    When will you be offering weekly the phone call weight loss coaching/mentoring/consulting again? 

    • Mary March 16, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

      ooops….I meant to say:  When will you be offering the weekly phone weight loss coaching/mentoring/consulting again?

      • Chris and Kara Mohr March 19, 2010 at 12:49 pm #

        Stay tuned to this — we are working on the programming as we speak and will be releasing it in a few short months. Thanks for asking, Mary.

  12. Mike March 16, 2010 at 4:44 pm #

    To begin your information is very refreshing. I would like to know nutrtition plays arole in weight loss from some one who has had non infectious mono as a teenager (obviously me) and does working out bring on those symptoms of tiredness. I was once told that the mono virus never leaves the body. Is the areason for unwanted weight gain?  

  13. Mauricio March 16, 2010 at 6:07 pm #

    Dear Mr. & Mrs. Mohr,
    I've been taking the Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Fish Oil for at least 2 years.  I read your article about their Omega fish oil with vitamin D.  Would my body assimilate them better, if taken separately?  Also,  Would you recommend taking Vitamin D or Vitamin D3 and what are the differences?  I reside in Florida.  Would you still recommend supplemting with Vitamin D or D3? 
     
    I would like to express my gratitude for all of the educational information and the time that you take, to educate and inform people.
     
     
    With Gratitude,
     
    Mauricio

    What type of exercises can I do to trim my calves?  I wear a 6.5 – 7 in a shoe but have calves like a lumber jack.  I like to wear boots but always have trouble because my calves are so large.  I knkow is is hard to spot train but I need help.

  15. Fred March 16, 2010 at 8:01 pm #

    What do you think of the weightwatchers meals they offer at MacDonals?

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:24 pm #

      If it increases awareness, great. Of course I’m not a huge proponent of McD’s, but this might be a “meet in the middle” sort of approach to help people.

  16. Rob March 16, 2010 at 8:53 pm #

    I would like to say thank you to both of you for all your knowledge and tips! I am a personal trainer out here in Jersey. Chris – my clients did your 21 day program with Todd and loved it!  So I just wanted to start by personally thanking you for helping them, and continuing to do so.
    I want to preface my question by saying that I am a certified nutrition specialist (through AASDN) for the last 7 years. I am always looking to learn more to help my clients reach their goals.
    I just finished listening to your colleague, Jeff Cavaliere speak (in which he spoke highly of you, by the way). Pretty good stuff. So besides Jeff, and the grade A Mohr's information, what books/journals, etc., would you recommend as a must to have in your library as a professional?  I see you have a lot of them, so I'd figure I ask.
    I've been told, Irving's "Nutrient TIming" is a must. Agree?
    I train mostly women, who wish to tone up/lose weight. Just figured I'd mention this, in case it might effect your answer.
    Thanks again.
    Rob

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:24 pm #

      Thanks, Rob. Nutrient Timing is a good, easy read. I can go on about this — honestly, read as much as possible. You’ll never get dumber by reading anything (that’s based on science). But know that clients will be reading fads too, so those are good as well just to be familiar with all that’s out there!

    Dear Chris and Kara,
    I'm considering bumping up to a 4 day/week routine … I'm a veteran camper but have only been able to commit to a 3 day/week schedule.  What challenges and rewards should I expect in the short and long term?
     
    Thank you,
    Amy 

  20. Carolyn Blalock March 17, 2010 at 6:51 am #

    I need to learn how to organize, plan ahead, understand portion control, fit in exercise, and be motivated to do it all while working 12 hour days and living alone?  I desparately want to look and feel good and be healthty but my thoughts sabotage me!

  21. DENISE BOHN March 17, 2010 at 7:22 am #

    Chris & Kara,
    You said that pushups were one of the best exercises for toning your arms and also your core.   I notice that in boot camp we alternate days for cardio and strength training.  I also know that you have to give your muscles time to "rest" so with this in mind is it OK to do pushups on a daily basis?  I am unable to participate in boot camp every day, so I'd like to know what I can do on the alternate days.

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:22 pm #

      Hi Denise — I wouldn’t do them everyday, but they’d be good on your off days if we didn’t do them the day before. You come 4 days/week, so I’d actually just keep active the other days vs. thinking about structured exercise. Go out for walks and things like that.

  22. sharon March 17, 2010 at 7:43 am #

    can you describe any exercises that would be good for someone with "frozen shoulder"? thanks for all your help!  

  23. Toree March 17, 2010 at 10:35 am #

    Chris and Kara-

    This may sound so simple but I was talking about it with another boot camp participant recently- I am trying to increase my running time and distance.  Are there any good strategies for someone like me who gets bored easily when running?  Also, what (if any) are good remedies to help with side stitches or do I just need to push through them?

    Thanks!

  24. Toree March 17, 2010 at 10:38 am #

    Chris and Kara-

    This may sound so simple but I was talking about with another camper recently- I am trying to increase my running time and distance.  Are there any good strategies out there for people like me who really do not like running and get bored easily? Also, what are some good (if any) ways to deal with side stitches?
    Thanks!

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:19 pm #

      Just continue building up your endurance over time. And make sure you don’t have too much food or liquid in your stomach when running because those won’t help either.

  25. mary March 17, 2010 at 10:41 am #

    I currently am taking a Vitamin D Supplement – Living here in Minnesota I'm told i'm not the only one deficient.  Once summer arrives and I'm enjoying the sunshine outdoors – can I get too much Vitamin D? Also what so you know about a supplement called BAM (Balanced Amino Maintenance)?  Thanks so much!! 

  26. Mike L March 17, 2010 at 10:57 am #

    Hi,
    After going thru a divorce 10 years ago, stopping at that point to take stock in my health situation, and changing my habits of eating & exercising (losing 70 lbs in a 4 month period). I have leveled off to about 205 lbs & at 6' tall male, I feel in pretty good shape EXCEPT for the little bit of belly fat I can't seem to get rid of.  If I go with a temporairy diet of mainly protein (like the Aitkens diet) will that help get this belly fat off AND will I be able to keep it off when I return to my sensible eating?  (btw, i exercise 5 days a week at least 1 hour per session)
    Thank you, Mike

  27. Kel Coe March 17, 2010 at 4:10 pm #

    What's the best way and time to get more protein into your diet when your a competitive student athlete. I usually have 2 training sessions per day 5 days per week.
    Thanks,
    Kel Coe

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:17 pm #

      Raw nuts are a favorite — they’re portable, cheap, and a quality source of protein. Horizon milk is good too in the single serve containers; it doesn’t need to be refrigerated until opened, so it’s perfect.

  28. Shelby L March 18, 2010 at 8:56 am #

    I am going to be running my first race next month and was wondering what the best meals are to eat the day before and the morning of.  Also how much water should I consume the day of?
    Love you guys!

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:11 pm #

      First, make sure the foods are ones you are used to eating — don’t try new foods prior to a race. Carbs should be the focus, but also include some protein and a little fat the day before. The morning of the race should again be a food you’re used to and time it so it’s not sitting in your stomach during race time. It takes a little practice to see what works for you. I always preferred oats with banana and milk before a longer endurance event — about 2 hours prior — and then a few sips of Gatorade immediately before.

  29. Gregg March 18, 2010 at 1:59 pm #

    Team Mohr,
    Great website and daily updates!!!
    I workout about 5-6 days a week, for at least 1 hour, by either running, lifting, swimming, cardio machines, basketball, etc…  Is there an "easy" way to tell how many calories you are actually burning to figure out how many calories you should or should not be intaking?  My goal is to lean out more, but I feel that even though I am eating good/healthy, I may be eating too much? 
    Many Thanks!!

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:09 pm #

      There are estimates for how many calories are burned, but those of course all vary on your size, intensity, etc. Best way to monitor this is by stepping on the scale and taking pictures of yourself — nothing is more “truthful” than a picture.

  30. Britney March 18, 2010 at 2:00 pm #

    Hey guys!
    I have a question about eggs:  Cage-free, Free-range, Organic, Farmer's Market (I am going to assume this will be your #1 choice), egg beaters, egg beaters-whites only?
    Thanks, B

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

      Our favorite is the Farmer’s Market — more nutrients in those golden yolks. Egg Beaters are just egg whites with food coloring. If you’re just using the egg whites, go with what’s cheapest because all the other nutrients are in the yolks anyway.

  31. Kim N March 18, 2010 at 4:38 pm #

    I have been working out and losing weight – which is great.  Now that I am getting close to my goal weight, I wondered what calorie intake is appropriate to maintain it?  Also, I wondered which cookbook that you rely on most for "healthy recipes."  Thanks. 

    • Chris and Kara Mohr April 1, 2010 at 12:05 pm #

      Hey Kim – the calorie intake you’re currently eating is appropriate since that’s how you lost the weight. In general it should be about 1200-1500 calories each day (more if you’re much more active). Our favorite is Ellie Krieger’s The Foods you Crave and So Easy.
