OMG that was crazy! Why would I do such a thing??? I’ll tell you why… the health benefits are huge! And experts keep discovering more benefits. There’s a right way and a wrong way of doing a fast of course. I’ll go over the benefits and the right way to do it but first I am reminded of a story about the doctor that discovered bacteria on hands. I am reminded of this story because there are a lot of people that will think fasting is crazy. And it is in a way. I’ll get into that too.

I want to tell you about the greatest pre-workout I have ever discovered. First, I am going to bash all other pre-workout crap. The first pre-workout I ever took was ephedrine with caffeine and ASA stack. I quickly got addicted to this stack. There is nothing good for you in this stack. They all have side effects. The ephedrine and caffeine don’t let you sleep the ephedrine as well has a history of causing heart problems. ASA causes leaky gut syndrome.
What I want to talk about today is the types of exercises that you need to do to get the abs showing and then a couple cool tricks that makes a huge difference. The best exercises to do for weight loss, strength, and for building muscle mass are the same. They are called compound exercises. Basically, you are not isolating muscles like a body builder of the 70’s. You are working as much of your body at once as you can in various powerlifting movements with body building sets, reps, and rest times.
I hate to say it but your doctor isn’t going to take good care of you. They will do their job to keep you alive and feeling ok and some of them will put in the extra effort to do a good job. They will not keep you at optimum health; that costs money. It’s not a concern if you are overweight and they will likely think you just need to stay away from the cheeseburgers or something. Your doctor isn’t going to tell you the stuff I’m about to tell you here.
I am 33 years old and I am morbidly obese. I was in Mexico with my best friend for his wedding when I had my aha moment. I decided at that point that I needed to change my life. I had found Travis on Kijiji and at the time I didn't know why but something drew me to him. I went for a consult with Travis and I haven't looked back since. I have been training with Travis since August and I have currently dropped about 50 lb's and I feel fantastic. I couldn't have done this without Travis’ support and direction. I am proud not only to call Travis my trainer, but also my friend.
It’s really simple and I’m not going to make it complicated. You need to get at least 75% of your calories from fats. You might have to weigh your food at first. There are 4 calories per gram of carbohydrates or sugars and proteins. There are 9 calories per gram of fat. Alcohol is not included in this diet, but there are 7 calories per gram of alcohol.
There’s still so much confusion and misinformation out there about fat, both the fat on our bodies and the fats we eat. You’ve been told that eating fat makes you fat–and increases your risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses–but fat is NOT the enemy. The truth is: eating MORE FAT can help shut down cravings, accelerate weight loss and potentially prevent or reverse disease!
There is a ketogenic summit going on right now and I highly recommend everyone has a listen here. It seems like every doctor is writing a book on how fat is good for you and all the benefits of eating good fats. Then there’s the doctors writing books on how carbohydrates and sugars are causing all kinds of problems for people. The word is getting out slowly, but a lot of people are stuck on the stigma that fat is bad. I hope those people can get a paradigm shift with this summit.
I know, cuz they’re hungry. I know, I know, but why do they eat breakfast food? And why are they hungry? Some people eat differently than others. What’s all that about? Let’s have a look at some of these questions and the answers.
There’s the counting calories method, the cutting out allergens method, all kinds of gimmicky brand name methods, the detox method, the intermittent fasting method, the graze all day (small meals many times a day), method. Holy crap there’s a lot of methods! My favorite? The keto-diet or ketogenic diet. Sit back, you’re going to want to hear this.
