This is an email I received a few weeks ago:
“Hey Joe, first of all thanks for your daily motivation and health
tips. I have been working with a personal trainer for the past 6
months. The workouts have been good,I guess but I wouldn’t really know
otherwise. I haven’t worked out on my own since my days playing
football and am frankly just too busy as a father and executive
to be figuring it out myself.
Either way, I am in dire need of a diet program I can follow so I
asked my trainer and he gave me the following ones to choose from:
his own program, some hormonal diet,weight watchers and just
focusing on eating the exact amount of calories I need (he gave me a
formula to use to figure this out). He first gave me his program
which is a carb cycle where you are rotating carbs in and out, but I

today is a carb day. So he gave me the choice above, which would you

Not to mention, aside from carb cycling, I’d never recommend any of
Busy people like you need something simple, yet effective. Sure it’s
possible to see results from counting calories or points, cycle, study
your hormones etc., but those things take too much work and are not
The new program I’m getting ready to launch is a 2.0 version of a
program I gave a group of people last spring where the average person
lost 20 lbs in just 8 weeks.
In this 2.0 version, the main difference is efficiency. I studied
patterns of my clients and going to hit just the major areas people
struggle with as well as what worked the best.
I want you to start thinking in the context of “Less Is More.” Look
at your workouts, eating, stretching, foam rolling…you see seeing
and feeling results?
How can you do less yet see a greater return?
