Most have a basic understanding about the important role food has in improving performance and it’s influence on weight loss/gain. However, many athletes and well intentioned people fail in their attempts to design and manage their own programs due to the large amounts of misinformation being popularized by main stream media, and poor understanding of nutrient timing. Understanding the three macronutrient types, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, and the foods that represent these nutrients is crucial, but only the beginning of an effective program that takes food timing, hormonal environment, and supplementation into consideration. Juggernaut’s nutritional advising and meal planning will design an individualized program based on your schedule, your training, and your goals.
Creating an effective and efficient training program is one of the most difficult tasks. Even top level athletes and Olympians have their training written by coaches, who can be objective about their strengths, weaknesses and needs. Chad Wesley Smith has a diverse athletic and coaching background and is ready to prepare team sport athletes, Powerlifters, Strongmen and Crossfitters to perform to the best of their abilities. Training with Chad is an exclusive experience, as he will only take on a small number of clients to ensure that each of them receives the attention they deserve. A 12 week training cycle with Chad (the minimum commitment) is $250. Email [email protected] for availability and more information.
” …The program worked. I lost 13 lbs off an already lean frame in the five and a half weeks prior to the fight, reaching a walking weight of 164 lbs before the water cut, and I felt the strongest I have ever felt throughout camp. While I was initially concerned about the long distance, email communication relationship, it proved to be quite manageable and maybe even better than if I had worked with someone local who I would have had a semi-weekly appointment with in person. Throughout my camp, people at my gym asked me what the secret behind the magic Juggernaut diet was. My answer was that there was no Juggernaut diet…the secret was that it was MY diet, created by Juggernaut for my body and my specific needs, and that is why it worked. The Juggernaut program is NOT a one-size-fits-all approach. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking to optimize their diets with great confidence they would see the same success I did” -Jessica Eve Richer, MMA 155lb Weight Class
“…I consulted with Nate about my nutritional needs and began early June in my preparation for Illinois’ semi-professional football league (MSFL). Nate made bi-weekly adjustments to my nutrition. JTS personalized my meal plan based around my crazy work schedule (sometimes 5am-6:30 pm) and improved my peri-workout nutrition significantly. I began my JTS nutrition programming at 207-208 and after eight weeks, I currently weigh 198 lbs at strong safety I feel stronger, leaner and faster than I have since college ball four years ago. The nutrition program given by JTS not only aided in my athletic performance but met the appropriate caloric and energy requirements that I needed during the day…” -ChrisWinter,CSCS,USAW
For any of you that have spent more than 5 minutes with Juggernaut you know that we demand top quality from ourselves and anyone we work with. When we endorse someone, we put our reputation on the line also, and that’s just what we’ve done with BioTrust.
Each product contains 100% All-Natural ingredients, and has been formulated by teams of medical doctors, scientists, and chemists. The components of each product are selected based on their ability to impact the body today and in the longterm in a healthy way.
Finally, BioTrust takes pains in making sure that the integrity of their ingredients are maintained during production and absorbency is maximized. There’s a difference when it comes to supplements, and it starts with quality ingredients and scientifically backed formulation, BioTrust excels in both areas.
BioTrust Low Carb™ uses a blend of whey protein concentrate, slow-digesting Micellar Casein, Whey Protein Isolate, and Milk Protein Concentrate all processed at cold temperatures using natural microfiltration to avoid protein denaturing and increase absorbency (less gas and bloating).
This protein formula is also sourced from cows not treated with the dangerous growth hormones rBGH, and rBST. We don’t know about you, but it’s certainly our goal to avoid putting synthetic, unnatural hormones into our bodies whenever possible.
My favorite flavor is Vanilla, just because I like to add carbs into my shakes when appropriate, but it’s up to you — Learn more about BioTrust Low Carb™
Most Branched Chain Amino Acid products are made up exclusively from free-form amino acids. Free-form amino acids, while valuable, all use the same neutral transport system. When consuming a significant amount of amino acids, the neutral transport system becomes overloaded, and the overall absorption rate of each amino is dramatically decreased.
The typical ratio of amino acids that appears in almost all BCAA products is a 2:1:1 blend of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Research has shown that the most beneficial of the three BCAAs is leucine for a number of reasons, so BioTrust put a double dose of leucine in BCAA Matrix for a 4:1:1 blend.
Due to the high level of Leucine in this product, make sure you avoid using the BCAA Matrix™ in the early, or ‘fat burning’ periods of the day. Leucine can cause the release of insulin in the absence of carbohydrates, which ceases fat burn — Learn more about BioTrust’s BCAA Matrix™
Your body’s ability to process the carbohydrates you eat all comes down to your insulin sensitivity and your body’s ability to quickly and efficiently shuttle carbohydrates to muscle tissue and not fat.
When you consume carbohydrates, here is what you want to happen:
1. Minimum insulin release. Your body has an incredibly difficult time burning fat in the presence of insulin. The less insulin you have floating around, the better. When your body is highly sensitive to insulin, only a small amount of insulin is necessary to effectively and efficiently clear glucose from your blood to its storage sites.
2. Quick and efficient blood sugar clearance. Again, this will occur when your body is highly sensitive to insulin.
3. Maximum glycogen uptake. Glycogen is the term used for stored carbohydrate in muscle. When muscle tissue is highly sensitive to insulin, the vast majority of blood glucose will be stored in muscle, not fat.
4. Minimum fat storage. When you increase insulin sensitivity, especially in skeletal muscle, your body will choose to store your carbohydrate intake as energy in muscle tissue instead of body fat.
Again, your body’s ability to process the carbohydrates you eat all comes down to your insulin sensitivity and your body’s ability to quickly and efficiently shuttle carbohydrates to muscle tissue and not fat.
IC-5™ is a synergistic blend of 5 unique, hard-to-come-by ingredients that have been clinically proven to increase insulin sensitivity and blood sugar management — Learn more about BioTrust’s IC5™
Leptin’s main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body views your stored body fat as a huge asset to survival. Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet.
The result: reduced leptin levels and dramatically decreased fat burn In fact, research has shown that leptin levels are cut in half after just 7 days of dieting… that puts you at only 50% of your fat-burning potential one week in to your fat loss plan, and it only gets worse with each passing day.
Through a synergistic blend of 6 unique ingredients, BioTrust’s LeptiBurn™ increases Leptin production and sensitivity, maximizing fat release and usage in the metabolic processes.
Juggernaut uses this product in conjunction with proven nutrient timing, high calorie/low carb meals, and training methods to increase fat burn — Learn more about BioTrust’s LeptiBurn™
Our bodies naturally produce an array of enzymes to aid in the digestion process, due to age, stress, an unbalanced diet, poor eating habits, and exposure to artificial food additives, colors, and preservatives it is extremely common for our bodies to no longer produce the necessary amounts of each enzyme to properly digest the food we eat.
The end result is slowed or stalled fat loss due to digestion-related food intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, gastrointestinal issues and distress, and a whole host of other health-related problems…all stemming from insufficient digestive enzyme production.
AbsorbMax™ is a comprehensive blend of 16 unique digestive enzymes that allow you to fully break down and stimulate delivery of nutrients into the cells of the body.
Juggernaut uses AbsorbMax™ to reduce gas and bloating (seriously), this product does wonders for improving digestion— Learn more about BioTrust’s AbsorbMax™
