Paleo BBQ Sauce
Summer is coming and the cover is off the grill. You will need a BBQ sauce that takes only minutes to prepare, paleo friendly and delicious. This is great on chicken, beef, pulled pork. Serve it to your kids with their chicken tenders. No added sugars and a little heat.
Debunking Testosterone Replacement Therapy
If you want to shed fat and gain muscle, having your hormones optimized is an important, but non-crucial tactic. But as a mono-treatment, it's not very effective. Or at least that's what we see at Stark. The most powerful tools to achieve your health and fitness goals remain the complex, drawn-out solutions: exercise, nutrition and lifestyle. And in my opinion, Testosterone Replacement is too big of a commitment for the hope of an aesthetic change, alone. Here are a couple of before and after pics.

“Red Meat Increases the Risk of Dying”
Did that get your attention? If it did, you’re not alone. That was a headline from a leading publication in 2017. Panic. Terror. Cows breathe a sigh of relief. Is the headline true? It must be.

THE 11 TACTICS I USE TO NATURALLY BALANCE AND INCREASE MY TESTOSTERONE LEVELS
Most want a direct approach to abs: workout harder; eat less. But the industry’s dirty little secret (let’s keep it between you and I) is that it doesn’t work. Or, rather, it doesn’t work for very long. By that I mean you can apply those to changes to your life, and for a brief time, you’ll look your best. You may not feel your best, but hey. . . . how important is that? Frankly, it’s the most important. Because how you feel is a more accurate reflection of your current state of health; and, it’s also an early indicator to your future state of fitness. That’s why your hormones are so critical. Your chronological age is just a number; your hormonal age is a much more critical look at whether or not you’re aging like a fine wine or that smelly science experiment in the back of your fridge. The former is what this article is all about.
The 15 Steps I Take to Optimize My Gut Health for Better Abs

Your skin will look healthier, you’ll be able to think more clearly, and you will be able to lose fat and add muscle to your desire.

Japanese Meatballs with Shishito Peppers
These chicken meatballs are a little burst of sunshine in your mouth. Really easy to make, healthy and so flavorful. I think they are the best chicken meatballs I have ever eaten and I am so happy to have found this recipe. I used processor and chopped the chicken thighs myself. But, I bet you could use the dark ground chicken. The texture is a little different but I am sure they would probably taste as good. This recipe will not disappoint.
