Because if we can't even be 100% sure about gravity, how the hell are we going to be sure about a food causing cancer?
I know I'm not the first one to touch on this, but I see this still being an issue with the rise of vegetarian and vegan diets. Not to say I have a beef (ha) with people who eat this way, but the claim that red or processed meat causes cancer is one rooted in [...]
It's been a long thought among the bodybuilding community that, in order to maximize GAINZZZZ (aka hypertrophy), you need to establish a "mind-muscle connection". What that means is the person who is performing the exercise is actively "thinking" about contracting the muscle as opposed to simply going through the motions. Now, in 2018, there is empirical [...]
Hi everyone. This is a speech I performed at my local Toastmaster's club. I talk about the parallels between nutrition and politics, specifically how we discuss them.

You can find Chris on instagram @cperry001. Chris Perry, a PhD candidate at ASU in the exercise and wellness program joins us to talk about all things sleep.

Welcome back. I missed you. We're here to finish our discussion on the different types of diets that are out there and to determine which work for weight loss. If you haven't read part one, we go over what each diet entails and what makes it different from the others. Read it here before reading [...]
Low carb, low fat, ketogenic...what do these terms mean? What the hell works? Turns out most of them will work if you stick to it *gasp*. There is a lot of frustration when it comes to selecting a diet to lose weight. Oftentimes, on the internet, you'll find some guru jackass touting the superiority of [...]

The leading minds in the fields of sports nutrition and exercise science came together to share their research, observations, and best practices for athletic performance, building muscle, and weight loss, among other topics. I was [...]
