Recipe Of The Month
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 2 tbsp. CapTri®
• 125 g. corn meal
• chili powder to taste (no more than 1/4 tsp. recommended unless you really like them hot!)
• popcorn salt*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour water over CapTri® C8 MCT, corn meal and chili powder. Mix well with fork until dough balls itself together. Shape into small 3/4 to I inch balls and place far enough apart on nonstick cookie sheet so that they do not touch when pressed flat. Press balls as flat and thin as you can, shaping them however you want (triangles, oval, rectangles, etc.). Sprinkle lightly with pinches of popcorn salt and bake about 30 minutes until edges just start to brown. Chips should be thin and crisp, but firm so that they can be used to scoop Mexican Bean Dip (pg. 89 of CapTri® Cookbook) or any other you may want to try.
Variations: add 1 tsp. jalapeno juice or other spices to give your chips some zip.

The Quest to Become Maximally Ripped
Bodybuilders are, hands down, the world’s greatest dieters. When it comes to getting maximally lean (while retaining muscle mass) competitive bodybuilders are unrivaled. Over the past 50 years elite bodybuilders have perfected the strategies and procedures that enable them to routinely whittle down to sub-5% bodyfat levels, even at the local and regional levels. Look at the physique winners in the sixties. Very few men had the muscle visibility that only comes with a low bodyfat percentile. John Parrillo came onto the scene in the 1970s and made his bones prepping bodybuilders for competition. He was the first to champion the inclusion of aerobics. He was the first to champion the high protein, high calorie, clean calorie diet. His bodybuilders routinely showed up big and shredded. Parrillo created the modern “bodybuilding matrix” that balances training, nutrition and supplementation to arrive at a predetermined physical goal. In the Parrillo approach, there are five component parts that are mixed, matched and monitored: progressive resistance training, fascia stretching, aerobics, nutrition and supplementation. Low body fat is obtained by combining hard, consistent training with the expert use of regular food. The nutrition is augmented with targeted nutritional supplementation and monitored with weekly body composition testing. Intense and consistent cardio exercise is mandatory. Interestingly enough, perhaps counter intuitively, John Parrillo postulates that the best way to get ripped is to first embark on a hi-protein, high-calorie mass-building phase.
