So groggy this morning.

I hate it when I wake up feeling groggy. I have no idea why, but this morning I woke up and felt like I was still in a dream. I stumbled through my normal routine this morning: I put one of my contacts in backwards, set off the house alarm when I let the dogs out (I’ve never done that before), forgot how to spell our passcode when the alarm monitoring service called, tripped over my own feet and almost spilled an entire cup of coffee on the carpet and now my fingers feel like they have lead in them and I can’t type worth a crap!

It looks like some changes to my diet are inevitable this weekend. I think I’m going to up my fats and reduce my carbs. I have a feeling the revised diet will only be in place for a couple of weeks, and then I’m going to have to go to a strict carb cycling diet to get down to 6% body fat. It will be interesting to see how the next 4-6 weeks play out…

The accolades for JSF’s oldest sponsor keep piling up! Check out the press release from AtLarge immediately below today’s update!

AtLarge Nutrition Press Release!

From the beginning, AtLarge Nutrition, LLC has been solely focused on offering the highest quality products that truly work as claimed. Despite the fact we are a small fish in a very large supplement sea, our hard work and commitment to quality has been recognized by some the biggest names in the industry. Men’s Health Magazine recently named our protein product Nitrean as the #1 protein supplement on the market. Strength training legend Louie Simmons personally uses and endorses our products.

The opinions of the top publication in the business and a true strength sports legend speak volumes about our company, but the most recent endorsement we have received from Dr. Jeff Volek is probably our most significant recommendation ever! To fully understand the gravity of Dr. Volek’s endorsement, below is a brief bio (taken from this website):

Dr. Jeff Volek is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and holds an adjunct appointment in the Nutritional Sciences [at The University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT.]. Dr. Volek is also a registered dietitian (R.D.) and has conducted several prospective research studies investigating a variety of dietary and exercise interventions. Dr. Volek is a leading authority and researcher in the area of dietary composition and effects on diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He has authored/co-authored over 100 scientific manuscripts as well as several book chapters, conference proceedings, technical reports and editorials. He is co-founder of the Nutrition and Metabolism Society and an Associated Editor of its newly founded open access journal Nutrition & Metabolism. He is also on the Editorial Board of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise and the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and routinely serves as an ad hoc reviewer for over a dozen scientific journals. His pioneering work with carbohydrate-restricted diets has been a major thrust for the movement to redefine nutritional recommendation to enhance clinical outcomes. Dr. Volek is routinely invited to present his research findings at the national and international level to professional organizations and to industry. Currently his research is focused on studying novel roles for different dietary supplements and the physiological adaptations to different dietary and exercise regimens with an emphasis on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, weight loss/body composition, and metabolic/endocrine adaptations. His laboratory in the Kinesiology Department has the capabilities of doing state-of-the-art assessments for body composition and biochemical and functional measures related to risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Bottom line, Dr. Volek is one of the leading minds in sports nutrition. Here is what he has to say about AtLarge Nutrition’s products:

“AtLarge Nutrition is a first class operation offering an assortment of superior quality supplements for the physically active individual who takes their health seriously. There is careful attention to formulation of products that are proven safe and efficacious. Their two thermogenic supplements, Nitor and Thermocin, exemplify their dedication to raising the bar of excellence in the supplement industry. These ‘fat burners’ contain a blend of scientifically validated ingredients to aid in natural enhancement of energy levels and fat loss. Keep up the good work!”
