Fitness 101.

As web developers, we're prone to sitting down on all day. Staying active takes effort! Sometimes it's easy to forget how much you've ate throughout the day. Other days, it feels like your pulling an all nighter and forget about your personal health.

We cover basic health science, nutrition, workout plans, and supplements.

    • 03:50 - Losing weight requires a deficit of calories. Meaning if your body requires 3000 calories to maintain weight based on your activity level, you need to consume less than that amount to drop weight. 3500 calories = 1 lb of weight.
