And I'm working on an ebook. Yes, don't laugh.. a book. As I've tried most major fitness and diet protocols on the market today, I've got a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn't. Believe it or not, but I'm still into fitness and diet. I've learned a lot in the last 5 years.
The book uses a basic, common sense workout that any super busy person who doesn't necessarily have the metabolism of an 18 year old football player can follow. I think it will surprise you how easy it is to get in your workouts every week the way I do it.
There'll be a companion book that covers nutrition with lots of tasty recipes that don't require a degree from the CIA. I love to cook and I've been teaching myself the basics of French cooking. Why French? Because it's really the foundation of western cooking. Did I mention the butter? Expect recipes that NEVER EVER use weird chemical substitutes for real, whole, natural food. You won't have to drive all over town to find vegan meat substitutes or soy hot dogs (egads).
I'm even putting in basic technique so you can sear a steak, create a great pan sauce, and put together a couple of wholesome sides without breaking a sweat. Your family won't be complaining about "mommy/daddy's weird food" because - let's be real here - who doesn't love steak? C'mon! For you vegetarians and other finicky eaters, yes I'll be making the case for meat. Pound for pound it's more nutrient dense than anything other food on earth.
Real people need a real lifestyle plan that promotes excellent health, mobility, and functional strength all while giving them a nice body without using up all their spare time. Sound like a typical promise? I suppose it is. But what other programs give you are "get a perfect body fast" promises. My program promotes a healthy, sustainable lifestyle that will keep a person fit, happy, and out of the doctor's office. Take that, Obamacare!
There'll be no meathead "do it this way or just go kill yourself" threats, no fanatical Crossfit doctrine, and no skeletal, whining, tree-kissing, ultra marathon dogma. Just plain old fitness and nutrition for the rest of us. But the great thing about my program is that it's scalable. Meaning that if you do have a bodybuilding physique goal, want to be a powerlifter, be a yogi, or want to do an Ironman, you can jump off in that direction and have a head start on your training. My program will provide a great foundation of functional strength and cardiovascular conditioning. It's a great baseline for living every day life, but what you will learn will carry over into other fitness disciplines.
It's a lot of work writing fitness and diet cookbooks. I've got a lot of respect for the people who put out good books on the subject. And since I'm doing it almost entirely myself, it's gonna take me a little while. So for me, in the mean time, I'll be posting up stuff to tide you over until I can get the books done.
For you, get your butt in the gym or go hit play on Tony Horton in your living room. You only get one life. Analysis paralysis will kill you.. in this case quite literally. So stop researching all the different programs, close your eyes and pick one and run with it. When you're done, assess where you are and then keep going with it or pick a new direction.
