Refeeding For Fat Loss

Posted by Justin Nault on

Author: Justin Nault If you were to ask me my nutritional recommendations for a variety of health issues, my answers would be pretty similar. Low-carb and/ or Paleo. Notice, I said for “health issues,” not “performance goals.” Deliberate word choice because the two do not go hand-in-hand.

How Much Protein Do You Really Need?

Posted by Justin Nault on

Author: Justin Nault I recently had a conversation with a close friend of mine. She is a vegetarian and I put together a nutrition plan for her a few months back. I know, a Paleo Nutritional Therapist making plans for vegetarians. Weird, right? Anyway, she hit me with some feedback. She was both thrilled and nervous all at the same time. “Justin, I am losing weight effortlessly. It’s just falling off! I couldn’t be happier. But...” Of course, there was a but. ” I feel like I may be losing TOO much weight. I’m afraid I’m losing my curves. I...
