Greetings! I am sitting at the airport in Chicago on my way back from a meeting in Florence, Italy.
One of the speakers was very inspiring. He is a billionaire in the health care industry. He built a very successful biotech company from scratch. His basic formula for success in anything is:

Have a great week.
Is it right before exercise, right after, or some other time? The answer is in a new study in the peer reviewed journal, Nutrition, and it just might surprise you.
Researchers studied a group of 44 young, healthy men. They put them all on a resistance (weight lifting) exercise training program for three months. They gave half of them a protein supplement consisting of 27.5 grams of protein, 15 grams of carbohydrate, and 0.1 gram of fat every night before sleep. The other group received a non-caloric placebo. Before and after the experiment they used whole-body, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry to measure their muscle mass. They also assessed their muscle fibers using a muscle biopsy. And they measured the men's overall strength. Here's what they found...
If you’re unfamiliar with this event, it’s worth knowing a little something about it.
This twenty-eight year old event is iconic. It’s a weekend-long festival which includes three races: a long course (Half Ironman), a mountain bike sprint and an Olympic distance race. And all racing is done on terrain that is scary tough – it’s not for the faint of heart.
It brings out a full slate of top pros and amateurs from all over the country hoping to test themselves in the early season and everyone goes home with bragging rights.
Approximately 75% of human waste is made of water. While we might typically think that urine is the liquid part of human waste products, the truth is that what we consider solid waste is actually mostly water as well. You should be thankful that most waste is fairly water-filled, as drier harder stools are what cause constipation and are much harder and sometimes painful to pass.

"I am training for an upcoming triathlon. Would I be able to do your cleanse program during my hard training phase?"

As I have transitioned into a new job as the Brigade Operations Officer for 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division - my time and my recovery from training are both becoming more and more important.
My time for training is absolutely critical because I must be judicious and efficient with my time in my new job. It isn’t uncommon to work late into the evening hours and report back for work early the next morning before the sun has risen. This makes my time to train - usually 60-70 minutes each morning - precious. I have to maximize every minute of this time to keep my fitness at a high level.
