Eating Food Before You Sleep

  So I have this issue. It’s really a funny thing. Anytime I eat way too much pizza or pasta before I go to sleep, I wake up anywhere from 1230-2am and can’t go back to sleep for the life of me. And I’m 95% sure it’s more than just the guilt of eating anContinue reading “Eating Food Before You Sleep”

Taking Statins to Reduce Cholesterol

I’m eating my words today. And I’m glad I am haha. I did some reasearch into statins and it seems like there really isn’t that much controversy surrounding the use of statins other than their known side effects (muscle pain, VERY low risk of depression).  I know in the last place I worked, I sawContinue reading “Taking Statins to Reduce Cholesterol”

Supplementation – BCAAs

Hey! Some nerd stuff today! (Here we go again) Anyone who’s been to a Globogym can picture the guy I’m about to describe.
