TT Members Blog on Fat Loss, Bodyweight Routines, and Weight Loss Nutrition
Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Here's the inside scoop on the Turbulence Training fat loss workouts, nutrition recommendations, and new exercises.

Nutrition Tip for Fat Loss


This is a nutrition tip for fat burning workouts, and for the people who are busting their butts in the gym and not getting the results they deserve.

Listen, you have to fix your nutrition if you want succeed in your fat burning workouts. The simplest change is to stop eating foods from a bag or a box. Switch over to more fruits and vegetables.

Now I know you're not just going to wake up and eat 10 servings of vegetables tomorrow. Besides, your stomach and co-workers wouldn't appreciate it.

But you have to make little changes every day, week, month & year. We can always get better. So this weekend, start with one new item from the produce aisle to help control your appetite, regulate your blood sugar, and burn body fat.

If you want to lose fat, live longer & healthier, and have more mental and physical energy to get through your day, you need to put premium fuel in your body's engine.

Not grease. Not sugar. Not quick fixes. You have to plan ahead. But don't worry, it doesn't take much time.

Start by eating several small meals each day, focusing on protein and fiber-rich foods.

Combine that with the short, convenient Turbulence Training workouts and you'll feel like a million bucks.

We are all a work in progress, so never give up on your ability to change your body at any age. Nutrition & exercise are as powerful as the drugs your doctors are handing out.

So fight back against aging and body fat naturally.

Sincerely,

Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS Author, Turbulence Training

Why You Shouldn't Read Workout & Diet Books


Craig Ballantyne Interview with Jimmy Lamour, Part 1

Q. Hi Craig. Good to have you hear to do this interview. Could you tell us what made you interested in the fitness industry? What is your background?

******** Craig: Like most folks in the fitness industry, I played a lot of sports when I was younger.

That led to weight training.

From there, I realized I wanted to be a strength coach in the NHL.

I went to school for Kinesiology, which then led to a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology. Along the way I studied what made a good NHL Strength Coach (they had Master's Degrees and were Certified Strength And Conditioning Specialists - CSCS).

I also started training athletes, along with men and women for fat loss, and in 1999 I started my first online training newsletter, even though I didn't have a website until 2001. From there, my work with Men's Health and my websites evolved into Turbulence Training as it is today.

Q. Who have been your biggest influences in the fitness industry?

******* Craig: My university professors. Frankly, I had some of the very best exercise and nutrition professors in the world. They gave me the foundation of knowledge for me to be able to identify exercise fads as BS and to pick out what really works.

Q. What types of books should we be reading if we are serious about fat loss?

******* Craig: You really don't need to read any books.

You just need to get 1 good book with a good workout program and follow simple, whole, natural food nutrition.

In fact, I don't think most people should read many diet and workout books.

It only serves to confuse them.

Instead, they should focus on inspirational books to keep them motivated. As well as books that help them make the best use of their time on a daily basis.

Q. Thanks for doing this interview and where can we learn more about you. What projects are you currently working on?

******* Craig: www.TransformationContest.com

Real people making really amazing body transformations.

There are no posed photos here...no off-season bodybuilders dieting down...just men and women losing fat in short workouts, 3 times per week with Turbulence Training.
