Still out of the gym for the next few days, but I figured I would post some motivation for myself and for others. The picture on the left is from January 2010 after about 4 months of lifting, believe it or not. I thought I actually had muscle at this point in time 😂😂😂, I weighed about 150lbs. The picture on the right is from just a few days ago at around 200lbs even. You definitely can reach your goals naturally – it will just take a lot of time, sleep, good food, supplementation, and hard, consistent training. However once you have built this muscle, nothing can take it away from you…not even disease or sickness. Get after it! #Motivation #Transformation #NaturalProgression #NaturalBodybuilding

You’ve got to meet Mike! He’s a powerlifter with the world on his shoulders and will never give up!

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way! How I manage my Crohn’s with pushing my strength to its limits is simple, I have an unbreakable will to succeed. I refuse to quit and every time I have a setback that’s motivation to come back stronger than before! This is simply something trying to stop me and I refuse to stop! Have a positive attitude, believe in yourself, and get pissed and show whatever is trying to hold you back that you refuse to be slowed down!” – Mike

Sesame-Miso Tuna Salad by Ashley Anderson, CNP

I created this recipe because I was looking for a way to get tuna into my diet. I’m really not a fan of tuna at all. The flavour just doesn’t jive with me and the highery mercury count just tops things off. But tuna is a very lean fish and great source of protein that’s easier to absorb compared to other proteins. So I figured: let’s figure out a recipe that tastes good, isn’t loaded with fat, and has lots of veggies 🙂 .
