It’s time to forget the old and rigid concepts of dieting. While members of the Paleo, or Vegan diet try to convince you that it’s their way, and ONLY their way, I committed myself to showing you there’s a BETTER way. By combining all of the principles that these diet structures cling to (I like to tell people we are Vegans that eat a moderate amount of meat, occasional dairy (butter), some nuts and seeds, little to no fruits, and a TON of good oils), I have created a very comprehensive nutritional road map that will guide you for the rest your life.
I have been an athlete since I was a child. Rather than think about girls, cars, or drugs when I was younger, my main mission was enhancing performance in the sports I loved to play, and at the same time making sure I never, ever got fat. That’s why I when I woke up one day at the young age of 28 and didn’t like the way I looked, felt or performed, I knew something was seriously wrong.
I was constantly bloated (I had a spare tire around my waist), constantly tired (I would sneak naps at work during lunch and then take another nap when I got home. This, after getting 8 hours of sleep.), and constantly getting sick (4-5 colds a year). My performance in the gym was going downhill no matter how hard I trained and anyone I talked to said the same thing:
“THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU START TO GET OLD CHRIS!!!”
There are two different ways of thinking about this. The first is to believe everyone, and accept the fact that as we age, we are supposed to gain weight and lose performance. The second is to fight like hell for your health! I chose the latter.
The final straw for me came at a very embarrassing moment in my life. I was working in a Physical Therapy clinic in 2005 and had a lovely sandwich stacked high with lettuce and tomato, with little to no meat. The low fat epitome of a healthy meal. The problem was about 4 hours later (the time it takes a solid food meal to empty from the stomach) I had a case of the nastiest gas I ever had in my life. While no one knew it as me, people were commenting on how nasty it smelled and to avoid detection I was forced to chime in.
This wasn’t the first time either.
It happened all the time and I was sick and tired of it.
That episode is what pushed me over the edge. A rampage of questions were stomping through my head.
1. If I’m eating what the experts say is healthy, how come I don’t feel healthy?
2. Why was my energy so low after eating if food is supposed to give you energy?
3. Why was fat accumulating on my body even though I ran and lifted weights harder than the average person?
4. Why couldn’t I think straight most of the day?
5. Why would I sometimes be hungry again as little as one hour after eating?
6. If I’m not eating any fat, why am I getting fat?
From that day I shifted all of my research from strength training (I was a strength coach for 6 years at that point) to nutrition and dieting. I literally turned myself into a walking food experiment.
I went on several different diets. I followed them all to the micronutrient. Some worked really well, others were as hard to follow as they were to implement. I went into all of the forums and saw others having the same problems I was having.
* They didn’t have time to weigh their food and count calories.
* Most people were still on the rollercoaster of taking weight off, then putting it on.
* People were complaining about hunger before bed time and not being able to sleep.
* People were complaining about low energy levels and headaches.
* People were discouraged by the lack of variety of foods they could choose from.
If you’re reading this right now than I’m sure you’ve been there so I don’t want to focus on what you already know.
Instead, I want to tell you what you can do about it because I have a great and new solution.
If you want to stop wondering what to eat and when, this book is going to be great for you.
If you want to look better, but more importantly FEEL better, please pay attention.
If you want to stop the anxiety every time you go see your doctor for a check up, then you’re really going to benefit from this.
Let me explain…
I can promise you right now, if you are looking for a new fad diet, this is not the resource for you.
If you want to strip off 30 pounds in ten days then this is not the book for you.
If you’re looking for a temporary solution for health and wellness, then this guide will over-deliver for your expectations.
The DEATH of the Diet is essentially an invitation to a healthy, sustainable way of eating towards your goals. Rather than tell you what you can’t eat, I discuss what you can and when for OPTIMAL results. There’s 3 guides – one for fat loss, one for bodyweight maintenance, and one for performance. It contains little known health strategies you can implement in your fridge AND your home.
I have to warn you though, there are parts of this book that are unconventional and controversial.
I’m 38 years young now and I have more energy, feel better and perform better than when I was 20 years old.
When people ask me what I do and what I eat they scoff at my response and say, “Well that surely can’t be healthy for you!” The fact of the matter is that it’s a SCIENTIFIC fact that it IS good for you. How can every health and fitness magazine have a new program every month that will shred your abs and help you “drop” the unwanted pounds? Where are all these shredded people?
The world is changing very fast these days and a lot of conventional methods we regarded as a sure thing are no longer working or too time consuming. There’s a shift occurring and the most successful people are achieving these results by unconventional means.
The first thing I hope you’ll take from my book are two important concepts which you absolutely must understand and buy into for any of this to work.
Important Concept #1:
You’re Going to Have to Change the Way You Think About Food.
Find out how asking this one single question before you prepare a meal
can help you instantly lose weight and feel better. (Page 16)
Find out why if you’re using cooking oils you’re cooking your health!
And what are the best substitutes. (Page 22)
Learn why eating fat will not make you fat and what the proper ratios are
for OPTIMAL health. (Page 27)
Discover why salt is actually GOOD for you and which type you should buy
for improved health and performance. (Page 130)
See how I debunk the MYTH that red meat is bad for you and give you an easy hack
that allows you to eat as much as you want safely. (Page 105)
Dive deep into the subject of why milk and most dairy products will destroy your health
and find out which dairy products are good for you. (Page 83)
Important Concept #2:
How To Utilize Unconventional Methods For Uncommon Results.
Find out why I tell you to throw out your Microwave and discover
healthy new ways to cook your food! (Page 146)
Learn why napping or resting after you eat can prevent a heart attack. (Page 135)
Discover which simple type of food added to every meal will
decrease your need for ever using antibiotics again! (Page 92)
Find out why you can eat as much food as you want
anytime you want to stay full. (Page 134)
Discover why eating carbohydrates for breakfast tells your body to make new fat cells
and what you can do about it. (Page 99)
Why I say fruit is bad for you
and when to eat it so it is good. (Page 69)
It doesn’t matter where you are right now…..
Whether you are looking to lose 10, 20, or 100 pounds.
This book will help you restore your health at the pace you choose, Permanently !
Learning my approach to not only nutrition, but health and wellness will make a huge difference in your life.
Institute the methods in my book and you will start to feel more energy and mental clarity in 1-3 days, lose at least an inch on your waist within the first week, gain a profound new sense of health and well being within the first 3 months, and after a year you will fire your doctor!
Lets be real here for a minute. Nobody enjoys going to the doctor. With the waiting room wait times, the over priced tests and procedures, the malpractice suits, and the insurance deductibles NOBODY but the uber rich can actually affordto go to the doctor. I was told by a close friend of mine that 70% of insurance employees are hired to DENY claims, and 30% of employees are hired to actually process and put claims through. That means every time you go to the doctor you are rolling the dice with your hard earned money.
I have not been to the doctor in over 10 years. We are all told that high blood pressure is genetic. My grandfather and father had it, and I had it too. When I was 25 years old my blood pressure was reading 141/98!!! I was eating heart healthy grains, fruit, chicken, barely any fat and exercising every day. I was eating what all magazines considered to be a healthy diet. At 28 I started to institute my new principles of nutrition and when I became a pilot at the age of 32 I had to go in for a health examine. The doctor read my blood pressure and was impressed with it being 109/62 (120/80 is normal)!
There was no magic bullet, no medication or super antioxidant. I simply fed my body what it truly needs to run on and everything shifted.
I now enjoy energy in abundance. I have zero health problems. When people guess my age they guess close to 10 years younger! And to top it all off I still eat delicious and savory food every single day!
I’m so confident that these methods are going to work for you that I’m going to give away one of my controversial secrets right now!
What I want you to do is go out and buy a bottle of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. Do not compromise the quality, buy ONLY Bragg’s!
Now, before you go to bed every night I want you to drink a half ounce of the apple cider vinegar. Bragg’s has a long list of health benefits, but the most important is its role in weight management.
You see, apple cider vinegar actually competes with sugar for your insulin receptors so by taking half of a shot (you can take a sip, a full shot, or whatever you can handle. It’s vinegar so YES it will smack you in the mouth!) before bed you will wake up feeling less hunger and therefore not needing to eat as much for breakfast.
Using this nutritional “hack” will already get you on the path to consuming less calories naturally, not to mention help balance out your gut bacteria because apple cider vinegar is a fermented product!
This is just one of the products I recommend to help build your health from the inside – out!
I know my work is good and I know it will help lots of people. The crazy thing is I didn’t even get to the best part yet!
Look, I’ve been a Strength Coach for over 18 years now. I’ve helped high school, collegiate and professional athletes feel better, look better and perform better through my nutritional programs. It’s nice working with gifted people, but when you have the gift of health, you give it to everyone and that’s why I have been developing this book for over a year now!
I’ll be the first to admit proper nutrition can be overwhelming. Nine out of every ten questions I get are concerning nutrition. That’s why I developed a very easy system to help make sense out of all the crap you are fed everyday through the news, magazines and especially the internet.
The way we do that is through what I call allowable food lists. For each of the 3 guides I have in my book, there is an allowable food list you can print out and put on your fridge, or condense and keep in your purse/wallet.
If you go to the grocery store you know EXACTLY what to buy.
If you go out to eat you know EXACTLY what to order.
You can eat as much as you want, there is no caloric ceiling. This is because all the food is natural and your body will either process it and use the energy, or excrete what it does not need. It’s that simple.
For each guide I have written out what a typical day looks like and I have charted out what a typical week looks like so there will be NO guess work on your part! If it is on the sheet you can eat it, if not, then you can’t. What’s clearer than that?
So what is this information worth to you? The lifetime cost of one heart attack is $150,000. The lifetime cost of cancer? 3-5 times that! All I’m asking for is the cost of a gourmet cup of coffee, and the value is there.
When it comes to health, prevention is key. I will spend $500 in prevention to avoid $500,000 in correction later on down the line. I created this book to aid in preventing disease, and the subsequent health care costs.
