While I am no longer continuing with my Weightology Weekly research review, there are good research reviews by my friends that I highly recommend.  One is the monthly Strength and Conditioning Research Review put out by my friends Bret Contreras and Chris Beardsley.  This thing is jam-packed with reviews of all the latest research related to the strength and conditioning field, released on a monthly basis.  You can subscribe annually by clicking here, and if you subscribe through this link you get 3 bonuses:

  1. A recent back issue so you get 13 issues rather than 12
  2. A completely up-to-date, 40-page research review on the key factors for gaining muscular strength
  3. A previously unseen e-book on the effects of periodization on strength, hypertrophy, and power

While I am an affiliate and I get a commission if you subscribe through my site, you know that I rarely recommend anything on my site unless I feel that it has a solid basis in science and evidence.  Bret and Chris do an excellent job of reviewing a variety of studies that would be of interest to fitness professionals of all types.  There’s a reason why I consider these guys not only my colleagues, but my friends as well.

Normally I don’t endorse products, but Sol Orwell and my other evidence-based friends at Examine.com have put together “Supplement Stack Guides”.  If you are interested in dietary supplements that actually have science to support them, these guides are for you.  The guides are organized by goal.  For example, if your goal is muscle gain and exercise performance, there is a specific guide for which supplements work together to help you reach your goals.  Only supplements with solid scientific research behind them are supported  These guides are truly ACTIONABLE lists of supplements.

If you’re interested in checking out the stack guides, click here.  Note that I am an affiliate for Examine.com and receive a small commission for orders placed through my site.  However, anyone who knows my background or my past article/posting history knows I would never recommend anything unless the evidence behind it is rock solid.

Dear Weightology Weekly Subscriber,

In what has been a difficult decision, I have decided to not continue with Weightology Weekly.  With the recent major changes in my life, it has become too difficult to find the time to write articles on a weekly or even monthly basis.  When I started Weightology Weekly back in 2010, my goal was to deliver evidence-based, scientifically accurate information in the field of weight loss, nutrition, and fitness.  I feel that I have successfully achieved that goal.  However, as a paying subscriber, you deserve my full attention and ability to deliver articles on time, something which I feel that I can no longer do.  Therefore, there will be no more future issues of Weightology Weekly.  I have canceled all automatic Paypal payments, so there is nothing that you need to do on your end.

I appreciate everyone that has continued to be a subscriber of my service and who has found it of value.  Therefore, anyone who was a current paid subscriber as of June 22, 2014, will continue to have indefinite access to all past members-only content of Weightology Weekly.  For anyone who was an annual subscriber, I will refund you the remaining months that you had on your subscription on a pro-rated basis.  Please be patient with me on this as it will take me some time to go through each annual subscriber and determine how much needs to be refunded.

I want to thank all of you for being Weightology Weekly subscribers.  I hope you have found the information that I have provided extremely useful in your own endeavors or that of your clients.  I will continue to be available to all my subscribers via email or via the comment sections on the articles.



P.S.  For anyone who is not a currently paid subscriber and is interested in access to the archives, I will be offering access to all past content for a one-time fee which is yet to be determined.  I will eventually update the subscription page when this option is ready.

Hello, everyone,

Some of you may already know that I have a brand new addition to my family born just a few days ago.  The prep work leading up to this wonderful moment, and of course the time I will be spending with my new daughter (and simultaneously managing my 19 month old), has resulted in me falling behind schedule on Weightology Weekly articles.  Currently I write 6 articles per month, and am about 9 articles behind right now (all of April and half of May’s articles).  I will likely be behind for a period of time but will eventually catch up.  Thanks for your patience as I adjust to this major change in my life.
