[How to] Clean Your Cast-Iron Cookware – Pictorial

You may have been handed your grandmother’s cast iron (yes, they DO last that long), or yo may be brand new to the game.

In either case, you’ll need to know that cast-iron cookware isn’t your run of the mill. Unlike the other pans, your cast iron cookware is pretty darn near indestructible, simple to use, and excellent for searing in flavor and sautéing meats and veggies.  In order preserve these family gems, you’ll want to know a couple of things.

Cast iron cookware, by the letter of the law, is NOT non-stick like say teflon coated pans.  However with the right care your pan can function without concerns of sticking, transition seamlessly to the oven, and last a lifetime.





How to Find Your Fitness Roadmap

Successfully navigating from Point A to Point B typically requires someone to ask two critical questions: Where are we now (point A)? Where do we want to be (point B)? Once we know the answers to these two questions, we can decide on the best route. Doing so without these answers is wasted effort.

The same is true of our fitness journey. Before we can begin to plan our path – the workouts and nutrition habits – we must first know where we are and where we want to be. Seems simple, right?

5 Tea Spots in New York that You Should Visit

New York City has a lot of… well everything. Its teashops are no exception. While tea hopping throughout NYC, I found some amazing neighborhood gems, a designers dream, and a few places that you would normally need a passport and a few thousand dollars to see. Let’s explore.

David's Tea

1. David’s Tea – West Village

Admittedly, I expected the subdued lighting, Zen music, and pretentious patrons that I have grown accustomed to in my visits to teashops thus far but to my surprise, this tea retailer felt more like Willy Wonka’s secret tea factory.READ MORE

Fight the good fight, Stuart Scott

In and around 2010, I was a regular on the red carpet for movie premiers at the Ziegfeld theater in New York.  I don’t want to make this sound like more than it was.  I was in a position to interview celebrities as they made their way down the carpet, holding a microphone, on video.  The way these things work, however, the first 5 stops on the interview trough are outlets like CNN, The Today Show, E!, Extra, Huffington Post, The New York Times, etc.  Once you get down to my location let’s just say the niches get pretty obscure.

“Hi I’m with ‘Horse and Hound.’ So are there many horses in The Expendables 3?”

It’s a new year.

Many of us use the turn of the year to mark progress, or to commit to change.  The problem is that most of us have done the resolutions thing before.  We may have even seen real progress, but if for whatever reason, things have stalled or haven’t stuck, you may need a new approach.

The problem may not be your resolve to do what you KNOW you need to do.  The truth is, KNOWING is often the problem.  It’s been our experience that the common knowledge is most often WRONG regarding what steps will move us directly toward our goals.  

If you’re among the millions of us that are looking at the scale or the fit of your clothes, or just aren’t feeling as energetic as you should, we’ve got a gift for you: Guidance.

Webinar: No Holds Barred – Ask me ANYTHING

Schedule: Part 1, Monday January 5, 2015, 12 Noon, Eastern

Webinar link: No Holds Barred pt. 1

In addition to having your questions asked, and hearing from others like you, we’ll be offering a special or two for you when you join us.

See you tomorrow.

The Selfish Side of Health and Wellness

family health, Eating For Abs

I am now, what you may call, and I MAY have referred to in my early 20s as a “health nut.” It’s OK, I take no offense to it, even if the jab is from my former self. I can clearly remember making the argument that I didn’t see the point in working out for greater health, if the time I added to my life I was spending in the gym! I’ve since recanted and I’ve found the enjoyment of training. Over the years I’ve learned the joy of cooking, that spread to the joy of sourcing high quality ingredients, turning my kitchen into a laboratory and voila, you have one certified health nut.READ MORE


Check out Hard-Gainer, Pescatarian, Kate’s E4A21 Progress

Kate is a pescatarian, which means that she prefers to only eat fish as her source of animal-based protein.

She’s also a hard gainer, which means that she’s tried in the past to gain lean mass, but has had a hard time making progress.  This isn’t to be confused with not being able to gain body fat, that’s not the goal.

Part of the difficulty that Kate, and other hard-gainers like her, faces can be attributed to genetics, but those can be often overcome with dietary changes and training adjustments.

Enter “E4A21,” the Eating For Abs 21-day fat loss challenge.  It introduces simple yet firm dietary guidelines, daily training that are designed to promote fat loss through healthy living.  Unlike crash diets through which one might lose weight through starving themselves, or eating rice cakes and ice cubes (who knows what people really eat on those diets), most people find themselves eating more food during their time in the challenge.

Alexandra’s Eating For Abs Experience – 50 lb body recomposition

Alexandra joined us January of this year, ready to take on change via The Ultimate Nutrition Course.

She faced challenges, as we all do, some common, and some less so. For one she is a shift worker, saving lives nightly in Boston, as an EMT. Night shifts = tough getting sleep, which is one of the habits we work on in the course. Also, she shares the kitchen with other adults that don’t share her health and fat loss goals, so she doesn’t have as much control over what foods are around. All this adds up to her being a regular person, just like you and me.

The key to Drea’s progress to date (230lbs to 180lbs and she’s still very much at it) isn’t that she worked extra hard in the gym, or did some additional hardcore dieting. The key to her progress is that she stayed engaged in what was happening in the course at the moment, not skipping ahead or looking for more to do. The Ultimate Nutrition Course is our step-by-step, one habit at a time, track to fat loss, great health and feeling fantastic. And the bottom line is that it works when you do.

Take a listen to her story.



Quitting Hurts Everyone


Eating For Abs is about two things: People and Managing Change. And helping people who want to change, adapt to circumstances and adopt behaviors that will inevitably lead to more happiness.

That’s why people come to us. They know that they can do better than they currently are, and they’re RIGHT. They CAN increase their baseline health, reduce their risk of contracting major disease, prevent facing costly medical treatments, spend more years medication free and pain free, run one day with their grand kids, know their great great grandkids by name… and just lose a few inches off of their hips, arms and waist, reduce excess fat and look great naked. YES! All of it. THAT is exactly what we do.


E4A21 Explained – Eating For Abs 21-Day Fat Loss Challenge


It’s quite possible that we started Eating For Abs, on it’s head. Upside down.

Our first service was 1-on-1 coaching.  One client at a time, one habit at a time, changing lives. We’ve worked with Olympians, National champions, NCAA teams, world record holders and stay at home moms.  It’s STILL an incredible service, through which people achieve incredible progress.

The next service we rolled out was The Ultimate Nutrition Course which is a huge deal because the group nature of the course allows us to take all of the life changing lessons we teach in the 1-on-1 practice and offer them to more people, more affordably. The ability to help more people achieve their goals is wildly rewarding, as are the relationships we build along the way.

How Coach Tracey Dropped 100 pounds

Coach Tracey

This article was originally published in March of 2011, when I first met Tracey.  Though you’ll find THIS accomplishment incredibly inspiring, who she’s become in the 4 years SINCE this is even more inspiring. She’s gone on to become a highly trained fitness professional who’s passion for helping others radiates. She has also found balance and comfort in being HEALTHY and strong, above having concern for the number on the scale.  This brings us together again, this time with me welcoming Tracey as a valued member of the Eating For Abs team of coaches.

Find out a little about her below.  Join our 1-on-1 Coaching program to work directly with Coach Tracey.

Tell me about your background. Where are you from, what did you study, and what do you do?
I came to New York City from Florida after graduating from Syracuse University with a Theatre Degree in 2001. After graduating and moving to New York, I pursued a career in acting and became a waitress at a wonderful little Swedish restaurant called Ulrika’s. In 2002, i dropped a significant amount of weight (30 pounds off of a 240 pounds frame) and i loved working out so much and the feeling that it gave me that i got my personal training certification. Since then i have been training off and on plus teaching group classes….READ MORE

One Dad’s Journey to Feel Great and Ditch Medication

“The most shocking thing was when my doctor told me I didn’t have to be on my cholesterol and hypertensive medications anymore!”

Not everyone is looking for the six-pack abs.

We get it!  And though we all want to feel comfortable in our own skin, some of us are more concerned with just reclaiming our energy levels and achieving great health.  Is it so far fetched to want to FEEL great?  We don’t think so.

Here’s the story of one of our Nutrition Course Alumni, who reclaimed his health through the course.

To find out more about our services visit EatingForAbs.com

I’ve been on a weight loss journey for YEARS.

I did Weight Watchers TWICE. Twice because you think you got it down and don’t need calculations and points anymore and can do it by yourself, but “eyeing it” only leads to indulgence and eventually you fall back into your old routine.

Next, I tried working out and eating clean. I saw some weight loss, but not enough. I realized that I must not be eating “clean”. I almost gave up, then my wife showed me your video. I always wanted a nutrition coach, but I always heard they were expensive. However, your video was hilarious (the high pitched voice), inexpensive, and you were approachable. So, I took a chance and I’m so glad I did.

Taj and familyThe incremental lesson approach is GENIUS! Every lesson became a habit. I didn’t even feel like I was trying. Plus, I was eating WAY more food than I was used to and I LOVE FOOD! LOL The weight just melted and I finally saw my abs!

I have so much more energy during my workouts and life in general. The most shocking thing was when my doctor told me I didn’t have to be on my cholesterol and hypertensive medications anymore!

Now I’m a semi-chef and have awesome knife skills! I literally cook 90% of all my food. I prepare for the week all my meals and snacks, but if I can’t, I feel confident in choosing delicious and nutrient dense foods when on the run.

Thank you Coach Be for this genius course. I never thought it was possible to feel this way and understand eating “clean”.

You guys changed my life… LITERALLY.

My FAMILY appreciates and thanks you.
