Recently, Jordan Syatt lost 6 pounds in a month.

Ho-hum, so what.

Well, the twist is he did it eating a Bic Mac every day, which is also completely ho-hum if you understand energy balance, but many people don’t or don’t want to and, well, many discussions ensued after word got around.

Some people refused to believe the results, others denounced the experiment as irresponsible, and others still tried to reconcile it with their fetish for calorie denial.

And in this interview, Jordan shares why he pulled the stunt, what he ate on the diet (besides Big Macs), how people responded, and most importantly, what he wants people to take away from it.

We also discuss strategies for staying in shape while traveling or just really busy, because as Gary Vaynerchuk’s strength and nutrition coach, Jordan knows a thing or two about helping busy, on-the-go people reach their fitness goals. 

Not only that, but Jordan’s also a guy who has set several powerlifting records and definitely doesn’t just talk the talk. 

Let’s get to the show!
