If you dread the idea of “dieting,” I understand.

Most diets feel more like punishment than self-improvement.

Instead of educating you on how the metabolism truly works and giving you the tools you need to manage it effectively, most diet “gurus” resort to fearmongering and food restriction instead.

If you want to lose fat or build “lean muscle,” they say, you can kiss just about everything you like eating goodbye.

Grains…anything containing gluten or sugar…high-glycemic carbs…red meat…processed foods…fruit…dairy…caloric beverages…granola…it’s all gotta go.

All your toys. Throw all that shit into the fire. No pain no gain! Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion!

Maybe you’re not up to this, you think. Maybe you’re not tough enough. You’ve always had trouble with willpower and dedication. Maybe abs aren’t really worth it.

On the other hand, who knows, maybe all you need in life is chicken, eggs, and vegetables? Starving children in Africa have it much worse…

Stop! Put the Kool-Aid down and slowly walk away.

What if I told you that you could dramatically transform your body eating foods you actually like…every day…7 days per week?

What if all you had to do to build muscle and lose fat was follow a handful of flexible dietary guidelines…not starve and deprive yourself?

And what if I promised you could forever break free of the restrictions and anxieties most people associate with dieting and learn to love it instead?

Too good to be true, you think? Downright heresy?

I know. I used to think the same thing. I now know the truth, though, and in this episode, I’m going to break it all down for you.

Let’s get to it.
