The supplement industry has been under scrutiny for much of its existence and with good reason. Products must undergo testing and see adequate results in order for them to be trusted. Not only do products need to be trusted on the safety side but just as importantly we need to know if they are going to give us the results we seek! There is one product which has stood the test of time and endless tests and that is caffeine.

Mornings are an important time for most of us. It is a time of productivity, critical thinking, problem solving and execution. If you have children, like me, then it’s even more critical. I have to establish the patience and mental clarity to show them some attention and love but also be on my way to work or prepping breakfast for them before I hit the office in the basement. The point of my candor and the commonality we all share is that we often wake up, and the day is going 100 miles per hour before we’ve even taken a deep breath.

Think back to growing up in general, most of us had parents who owned a scale and they visited it frequently making sure they didn’t get too heavy. Or your parents likely owned a scale and they NEVER got on it in fear it would tell them something they didn’t want to see! A disclaimer here folks, if you don’t get on the scale your weight is still the same. But the number on the scale reflects nothing, it’s simply one data point that could literally tell us nothing.

As a society we are fixated on the ability to see someone’s abs! Why? Naturally we have to assume that for one's abdominal muscles to be visible it means they are mobile, healthy and strong. This isn’t true 100% of the time, but that seems to be a general commonality. Why does it seem to be such an evasive accomplishment to many? Is it truly healthy? Is it sustainable all year round? Is it more about your exercise or your nutrition? Let’s talk about this “unicorn” in the room, shall we?
