Official Details for our Annual 2022 Holiday Party:

When: Saturday, December 10, 2022 at 6pm
Where: Monday Night Brewing in Germantown
Who: Everyone from Forte and your significant other
This is the same place we held our party last year and it was tons of fun. The facility is cool and unique, and the vibe is solid. Happy to be going back. Would love for as many Forte members to come as possible.
Eating, drinking, being merry, and furthering our bonds is the sole goal, so like last year, 
Katelyn and I will open up a Forte tab that everyone can put their drinks on, and then we’ll order a bunch of food. 

BONUS:

Earlier that same day, we will be doing our annual “Fight Gone Bad” workout. If you’ve not been, we make it a fun little event. We’ll have several heats, score cards,  judges counting your reps, and we’ll likely have a photographer to get some quality pics of you get sexy, fit, jacked n tan, too!

It’s gonna be a great day!

It’s been a minute, but I’d like to remind all Forte members to focus each of your meals around real, whole food protein. Dinner this fine Sunday evening was skirt steak, potatoes with lemon zest and parmesan, blueberries/kefir/raw honey, raw milk, and homemade kombucha and bone broth. Likely ~100g of protein right there.

If you are carrying unwanted subcutaneous tissue, it’s likely you are not eating enough protein. One gram per pound of bodyweight should be your goal (if you weigh 150lbs, your goal should be 150 grams of protein), especially if you are active and doing things like CrossFit.

Carbs and fats are what people overeat, often in combination, as those are what are tastiest. Try overeating chicken breasts, or top sirloin…you cannot. Too satiating.

Read the article below corroborating with my suggestion above
