Snack attack! Understanding nonhungry eating

Apr 20, 2021 Tony Montgomery

We fail because our goals are not sustainable. We jump into a weight loss journey and think we need to deprive ourselves—cut things out—and that we need to be 100% disciplined, up at 5a.m. every day getting in a run, hitting the weights in the evening after work.

A Powerlifter’s Timeout

Mar 14, 2021 Tony Montgomery

But what if we’re missing the bigger picture? Deloads are more than just a time for allowing the body to heal, they’re a time to take a step back and reevaluate your body mechanics, reset your mind and refocus on the task at hand.
