There’s no denying the fact that reducing your carbohydrate intake and eating copious amounts of fat will transform your health and body composition; especially if you’re experiencing any symptoms of metabolic derangement (insulin resistance, obesity). And it’s nice to see this information finally hitting the mainstream. As we’ve been pretty much forced to do the…

The benefits of exercising with intensity are plentiful – unmatched improvements in insulin sensitivity and body composition, mind-blowing reductions in triglyceride and blood glucose levels, considerable increases in aerobic performance measures (that are equivalent to steady-state cardio in < 1/10th the time) – and as we discussed in 1% Fitness, there are several ways you…
