The Most Common Supplement Questions: 1 of 5

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sending you answers to some of the most commonly-asked, Core 4 Nutrition questions. Let's start at the beginning--with question number one!

Question:I eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, so why would I need to take supplements?

Answer:For optimal function, the human body requires a number of different vital nutrients in amounts that are almost impossible to obtain from food sources alone. Of the thousands of initial, base-line, nutrient assessment results we've seen from clients (including those who had been eating a healthy, well-balanced diet for years), very few have fallen within a normal, healthy range. Taking the correct amounts of the right supplements is essential for maximizing the body's full health and performance potential. Still, eating well is an absolute essential...

At my core, I've been passionate about health and fitness for the past 45 years. I’m also passionate about sharing what I’ve learned and enjoy offering advice to those who see my results and want to know my “secrets” of success.

I started training and taking nutritional supplements in college and have never stopped. I graduated first in my class (physical fitness and self-defense) from the L.A. Police Academy in 1976. While a member of the LAPD x-country team, I ran a sub 3 hour marathon and placed 5th in the California Police Olympics in the 10K run. (34:29). More than thirty years later, I took first in the NW Ergomania Indoor Rowing Championships and 5th in the Longest Stair Climb in the World (162 stories) in Bellevue, WA.  

But even as I was still going strong at the age of 60, I began to notice some not-so-positive changes.  That’s when I began looking for a strategy that would help me slow down my aging process.  In 2011, I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Cohen.  After reviewing my previous lab assessments and performing additional ones through the Core 4 Nutrition program, I began following the Core 4 supplement system and made the Dr. Cohen’s recommended adjustments to my dietary and fitness regimens.

I eliminated almost all sugar the obvious, and as I discovered, the not so obvious hidden in places you least expect. I cut back on grains (other than a weekly popcorn treat) and traded endurance training with twice weekly high-intensity interval training; I combined yoga and body weight exercises with shorter strength training sessions and easier, longer-distance cycling.  To top it off, I took up dancing two years ago– not for exercise, but for the love of music. It just happens to be a good complementary physical activity as well. This is now my great passion....

Mythbuster: Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal of the Day?

What's the most important meal of the day?

All together now Breakfast!

Most of us have been conditioned to believe that we should eat the first thing in the morning. But the truth is that (for most people) waiting a few (or more) hours to "break the fast" after waking up can be more beneficial to your health.

The catch is that you can’t implement this practice and derive its benefits until you train your body to burn fat as opposed to sugar (simple carbohydrates). Otherwise, you'll be setting the stage for food cravings, fatigue, and poor concentration because your blood sugar will be low. Sugar burners are required to eat carbohydrates every few hours to maintain a steady blood sugar level, which keeps the hunger and food cravings at bay.

When you become fat adapted (your body recognizes and utilizes fat as its preferred fuel), you'll find that you won't always be hungry in the morning; you may even feel more energetic and focused when you wait a few hours to eat.  Here's why:...
