The Case for Flax Seed

May 8th, 2013 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Nutrition & Weight Loss, Supplements

Seems like there is a lot of buzz about Chia seeds these days.  Now chia seeds are a very healthful food but today I want to talk about the more neglected super seed: flax. I’ve been a fan of flax seed for awhile and put a tablespoon in my morning smoothie.  I use whole seed [...]



Does Creatine Work for Women?

Feb 18th, 2013 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Nutrition & Weight Loss, Supplements

Creatine has a reputation of being a ‘guys’ supplement.  It’s preceived as helping guys get bulked up and is rumored to add water weight.  And as women, we typically don’t want to be either ‘bulked’ or carry excess water weight.  So the question becomes – are the rumors true?  Yes, but not ‘so much’ as [...]

Jan 16th, 2011 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Featured Product, Supplements

I don’t promote a lot of ‘fat burners’ but when something that is different comes along I’ll try it.  And if it works, I’ll tell you about it.  The thing is, Lean Xtreme is less a fat burner and more a body recompositioning agent.  By that I mean it will help you add lean muscle [...]

How Necessary is the P90X Recovery Drink?

Sep 12th, 2010 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: P90X FAQ, Supplements

Perhaps there is no question that is more often asked or more heatedly debated than the questions that ask if the P90X recovery drink is really needed when doing the P90X program. Here’s where I stand.  I actually put off getting the recovery drink for the first two weeks of the program and I definitely [...]



P90X Supplements or Insanity Supplements Do You Need Them?

Aug 23rd, 2010 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., P90X FAQ, Supplements

I get this question regularly. But before I can answer this question, we need to define what ‘supplements’ are. This is particularly important when it comes to protein powder. I don’t consider this a supplement because it’s really a food. A good shake replaces some other food you would have eaten otherwise. Would you consider [...]

I’m always looking for that slight edge to keep my 51 year old body in peak form.  Let’s be honest, it’s WAY harder once you clear 50 to recover than it is when you are in your 20′s.  And I’m still working on getting my body in it’s best form ever. I acknowledge that I’ve [...]
