About Us

cut the fat podcastHey there! I am Dr. Ray Hinish and I cohost the Cut the Fat Podcast along with my good friend and fitness expert, Blythe Alberg.

Cut the Fat was started in 2009 out of a shared passion for fitness and fat loss. Together, we are constantly studying and applying the latest science as we work towards helping you discover YOUR individualized “Formula for Fat Loss”.

In this blog and podcast, you’ll discover tons of, what we call, “golden nuggets”, which make up the ingredients that you must combine together to form your own formula for fat loss. That’s right, we provide the ingredients but YOU must develop the formula!  If we’ve discovered one thing beyond a shadow of a doubt in the thousands of hours that we have dedicated to the study of fitness and fat loss, it’s this…

There is no single formula for fat loss.

Nope, as sad as it may sound, there are literally thousands of formulas…if not millions of formulas, and the only way to find yours is by conducting your own study of “1”…i.e. YOU!

Our goal is to provide you with the laboratory full of the ingredients and nudge you in the direction of the ingredients that are most likely to provide benefit. Then we want you to follow our proprietary formula called the CATAA formula, which will help you test and discover your own Fat Loss Formula!

We typically post new podcasts every 2-3 weeks and new blog posts three to four times a week. To make sure that you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or email. We are also accepting limited amounts of advertising sponsorship, however, I will point out that we only accept sponsors that provide products that we would use ourselves!

Our Biography

blythe albergDr. Ray Hinish
I am the founder of Personal Training Rx, a private fitness studio and weight loss clinic located in Baltimore, Maryland. After graduating from the University of Maryand School of Pharmacy with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, I continued my education and received certifications as a Personal Trainer and Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant through the American Council on Exercise.

Immediately after graduation, I opened the Your Prescription for Health Wellness Center in Owings Mills, Maryland. As a reformed overweight child, I started with the cards stacked against me. At a young age, my life changed when a childhood crush rejected me because of my weight.  In a nutshell, the incident that changed my life went like this…
It was 17 years ago when I first met Kelly Harrington. I was a young, chubby, nugget-headed little kid who had a crush on a girl two years my elder and way out of my league. As a love-struck child, I did everything I could to be in her company. One day, at a neighborhood Christmas party I somehow got ahold of Kelly’s shoe. Don’t ask me how I got it, but soon I found myself being chased throughout the house by the woman of my dreams. Being overweight, you can imagine that I wasn’t the swiftest creature on earth and quickly found myself cornered by the beautiful young girl. The next words that came from her mouth changed my life, she said, “You’re fat! Give me back my shoe!”
That night I walked home with tears in my eyes, closed my bedroom door and wept bitterly for what seemed to be hours. Eventually, I caught my breath, wiped the tears from my eyes and saw something in the corner of my room that I had never noticed before…a little set of old weights. I picked up one of the weights and holding it in both arms curled it for what felt like 300 times. I did this every night when my parents thought I was sleeping until one morning I woke up with a little bubble on my arm, you guessed it, it was a muscle. From that moment I was hooked on fitness. I began to run, took up martial arts and read every book I could find on health and fitness.

My personal mission is to reach a body fat in the 10-12% range and in the process help as many people as I can reach their own weight loss goals! The information in this site is based on solid scientific evidence, which I am constantly evaluating and vetting. CuttheFatPodcast.com exists to find the truth about long-term fat loss and we, at CuttheFatPodcast.com, welcome all questions, challenges and comments!

I am a 34 year old mother of 3, with the youngest now being 3 years old. I am in the best shape of my life and continue to raise the bar as new times and events in life continue to challenge me and keep the journey exciting!
I am a professional figure athlete and have competed (and won) in bodybuilding and bikini competitions. I began competing back in 1999 as an amateur figure competitor and enjoyed it so much that I opted to promote a bodybuilding/figure/fitness competition of my own.

With over ten years of personal experience and now years of experience working with others, I have gained a wealth of knowledge on getting rid of body fat efficiently and effectively within the confines of a busy life.
There are many not-so-secret ‘secrets’ I’m able to share with others. I have worked with everyone from stay at home moms to fitness athletes who need to get their body fat down to single digits!

It is not uncommon for men and women to reach peak fitness and health in their 20′s, 30′s AND beyond… why not start today? Everyone can get better as the years go on!

Dr. Ray and I met a few years back and I’m fortunate to be able to work with such a bright man. We share similar thoughts on fat loss but what he brings to the table is without comparison some of the most relevant, scientific information to date!

Keep us posted on your progress as we love to help monitor progress of all of our members!
