It's been said, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. If you don't have a game plan for what to do with all that Halloween candy you will surely eat it.

Here are several tips to avoid eating the Halloween candy in the first place.

1. Don't buy trigger treats. Everyone has treats that they simply can't say no to. These are trigger foods. If you love chocolate, don't buy anything with chocolate. That goes for the rest of the family too. Figure their trigger foods and avoid buying those to hand out.

2. Keep the candy out of site, and then it's out of mind and mouth. Store the candy in the trunk of your car, in the garage, or in the basement. Put it in a messy room you hate going into. ...

If you're an HPT client you know we love a diet that is balanced, but shifted towards: clean-lean proteins, smart fats, and low-glycemic load carbs. This can be easy to do for lunch and dinner, but may get really boring for breakfast. Very few snack options exist, and carrying eggs around in a cooler can get old. In her attempt to always provide guests at our house with a high-protein, steady energy, nutrient dense breakfast, Ruth has done it again. She created a balanced meal, that can be eaten for breakfast, or used as a snack (and you don't even need a cooler).
Eat 3 or more of these for a meal or 1 or as a snack. They can even kill a carb craving at night time!

Do you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you have constipation? Do you get frequent headaches (even migraines) or do you get muscle cramps (or heart palpitations)? Do you know many of these can be helped and probably fixed with magnesium? Any time a client deals with poor sleep we let them know about how effective magnesium, especially magnesium glycinate is for sleep. Take a couple of caps of magnesium glycinate before bed and it’s truly “lights out” when the lights go out.

If you’re not a believer in magnesium, you will be a disciple after you try a few capsules of magnesium glycinate. Magnesium is truly one of the supplements you can feel workin...

MUSCLE IMBALANCES

By stalin

Imbalances may occur from sport, exercise, occupation, and even heredity. You may have developed pain in the shoulder from being a tennis player. Tennis players tend to develop too much shoulder rotation in one direction while losing shoulder rotation in the other (sport imbalance). This may lead to instability and the development of trigger points in the shoulder. You may have developed low back pain from doing to many sit ups that tighten up your hip flexors and increase your hip flexor strength relative to your abs (exercise imbalance). The pain in your low back may have been from a leg length discrepancy you were born with (hereditary imbalance).

An athletic performance assessment is for you if you answer yes to any of the below:

Do you have pain when playing your sport or in training?
Is lack of strength, speed, or agility holding you back?
Do you want to decrease your risk for injury?
Would you like to make the fastest progress?

Prior to training, an assessment is highly recommended. This process will identify your current state of performance; identify muscle imbalances and potential points of injury. Our assessment process may include, but may not be limited to the following assessments:

ANTHROPOMETRICS: We will measure your height, weight, and circumference.
BODY COMPOSITION: We utilize the most cutting edge methodology today for assessing body composition – Biosignature Modulation. Where as most body composition formulas tell you only your body fat, Biosignature Modulation digs deeper linking your hormonal profile with how your body stores fat. This technique was developed by world renowned Strength Coach Ch...
