Tips for Making a Better Burger, from a Champ


Summer is officially here in full swing, which can only mean one thing--- break out the grill.  A mainstay of summer grilling is, no doubt, the classic, no frills-hamburger.  We've looked around and consulted a real pro -- Matt Jennings, chef at Providence's Farmstead & La Laiterie, inventor of the Pig Mac, three-time winner of roving pork spectacular Cochon 555, and two-time James Beard Award nominee--- to bring you the best tips to make the best burgers.  Here they are:

Always go for the cleanest meat you can find, which, in a lot of cases, is going to mean local, humanely-raised, grass-fed. Farmers' markets are a great place to look. Your local butcher can definitely source it. So that's first and foremost: good, healthy meat.

Reversible Bow Ties: Bringing New Meaning to the Term "Flip-Flop"

If you're a person who often skips the traditional tie for the bowed variety, you'll likely enjoy these Cotton Treats Reversible Bow Ties ($32). Made from a cotton/polyester blend, these self-tied bow ties are available in a wide variety of styles and colors, each featuring a complimentary design on the opposite side, which you can let show through in the knot, or keep hidden for reusability purposes — like those times when you're heading to work straight from somewhere other than home and don't want to look like you're wearing the exact same thing.

Dieting and Fitness Tips for Summer


Most fitness conscious people know that there are 3500 calories in a pound of fat, theoretically,  if you create a deficit of 3500 calories in a week, you lose a pound of fat.
Like most things in life, it isn't quite that simple. First, this assumes that all the weight lost  will be fat.  We know that inevitably when we lose weight, some of that loss is lean body mass along with the body fat.
Our bodies are constantly striving to maintain a balance. So although the amount of body fat lost is based on initial body fat level and the size of the calorie deficit, lean people tend to lose more lean body mass and retain more fat; fat people tend to lose more body fat and retain more lean tissue. This explains why obese people can tolerate aggressive low calorie diets better than already lean people. For those wishing to lose a moderate amount of body fat from a body which is not excessively fat, a gentler more conservative approach to dieting can be more successful, especially if the goal is to retain or improve muscle mass.
While a pound of fat metabolizes into about 3500 calories, a pound of muscle yields only about 600 calories. So if you create a weekly calorie deficit of 3500 calories, and you manage to lose nothing but body fat, you will lose one pound in weight. But if you lost instead 100% muscle, you would lose almost six pounds in weight. And the mirror will not love you!

Street Style!

Single Fathers: Tackling the Role of Responsibility

With Father's Day on the horizon, AGB Style takes a moment to celebrate the many men who put in the work to be called "dad".   Particularly, single fathers who cook, clean, help with homework, change diapers and pay the bills.

The truth is, while everyone is aware of the "Dead-Beat Dad", few acknowledge the many single fathers that are taking the full responsibility of raising their children everyday.

Just like the latest iPhone and iPad, the all-new MacBook Pro ($2,200+) sports a bee-you-tee-full-clark Retina display (you know, the kind with pixels so small your eyeballs can't see 'em) that comes in at 15-inches (2880 x 1800), making it the world's highest resolution notebook display.

Maker's Mark Cigars

Fine cigars go great with bourbon — but what about a bourbon cigar? As it turns out, they're pretty great too. Maker's Mark Cigars ($8-$11) are made from long-leaf tobacco grown in the Dominican Republic, and are "aromatically enhanced" by the Maker's, giving them a terrific flavor without ever having touched the bourbon. As an added bonus, they arrive in glass tubes that have been hand-dipped in Maker's signature wax, making the containers airtight, humidification unnecessary, and these cigars absolutely perfect for the golf course.
