What follows is a list of blogs/websites that I like and go to, with a brief description as to why.
AnthonyColpo.com – Author of The Fat Loss Bible, which is, in my opinion, the best complete book on the science of fat loss on the market (link to my review). His writing can be pretty brash, but also thought provoking.
AnymanFitness.com – Jason’s a fitness coach who gets good results for “normal” folk. He also keeps it pretty real on his blog, I think, which is pretty rare these days. Jason has also personally helped me, which I very much appreciate.
BayesianBodybuilding.com – Menno posts great science backed articles that set the record straight on various hot topics in the bodybuilding world. Definitely useful.
Examine.com – I don’t use the word “amazing” lightly, but Sol Orwell and his team have really done an incredible job of putting together an online resource that’s truly special. This is, in my opinion, the best and most complete source of scientifically objective information on all kinds of health and fitness topics.
Strengtheory.com – Though Greg’s work is more focused on maximum strength and power lifting, I still read it because it’s really interesting and useful information, I think. Also, based on my limited interaction with him, I think he’s a really nice and genuine guy.
WholeHealthSource.com – Stephan is an obesity researcher who’s about to come out with a book on the brain’s relationship to food, hunger, and weight regulation, and I’m really looking forward to it. He breaks pertinent research into layman’s posts on his blog in a very useful way.
LookGreatNaked.com – Brad’s website, which has a title that’s about as straight to the point as they come, has great “set the record straight” pieces on common questions in the weightlifting world. He actually puts together and runs the studies which analyze these questions. I’ll read his new book, eventually, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
A link here does not imply my *unilateral* endorsement. I might not always agree with something that any of these people may say.
And, Regarding Outreach…
I’m open to emails from people who think their site/resource would be something I’d like and recommend. You don’t have to be the most credentialed expert on the planet – I’m not either – nor do you necessarily have to discuss health/fitness directly per say, but, if you’re genuine, you resonate with my philosophy, and you send me a sincere outreach email, I’ll give it consideration.
I’m always on the lookout for other great sites/blogs – they’re hard to find (seriously), so when one emails and introduces itself that’s always nice. I’m also apt to help people who are legitimately trying move the needle in a positive way, so send me an email (or contact me on social media) if you’d like to connect.
