Ultimate Cheesecake Recipe!


The best cheesecake known to man!
 Cheesecake is quite possibly the best dessert on this earth.  When eating healthy most people avoid desserts like this but there is a healthy way to make just about anything your heart desires.  Where there is a will there is a way.  This recipe is the basic recipe that I make all of my cheesecakes from.  I found a few online that I liked and basically experimented until I found a taste that I loved.  You can experiment with it and change things up and I encourage you to do so.  Try adding more yogurt or maybe you like it creamier and would like to double the cream cheese.  Baking times are somewhat consistant when you change up the recipe but it you end up changing it drastically make sure you watch it in the oven every once in a while.

What Should Be In Your Refrigerator



If working with clients has taught me anything it’s that people don’t know what to eat.  It almost seems to be unimportant to most people.  The same people that don’t know what to eat will spend countless hours at the mall picking out items they put ON their body but hardly spend any time at all figuring out what they should put IN their body.  Much of this is due to sheer ignorance.  People just haven’t taken the time to find out what they should be eating.  They just buy what they see everyone else buying or what they see on TV and in ads which is usually the exact opposite of what they should be eating.  What I am about to tell you isn’t rocket science.  In fact, most of you already know what you should be eating but don’t do it.  Hopefully I can help change that.

16 Week Transformation (results)

 
It is not just my clients that will be going through this 16 week transformation but I will be doing it as well.  Over the last 2-3 weeks I have successfully gained about 25 lbs.  I would say 8-10 lbs of it are water weight from the excess carb intake but it’s still weight.  I have successfully lost any visible abs that I had which was ultimately the goal.  Over the next 16 weeks I will be following the exact same guidelines that I give my clients.  I will be updating this post periodically with my body weight, body fat, gym gains etc. 

     The 2-3 weeks of excessive overeating of junk food affected me in many different ways.  For one my
