"The Single, Most Important Secret That Fitness Magazines, Doctors and Your Personal Trainer Won't Tell You About Why You're Not Losing Weight."
Warning: if you are willing to continue spending hours of your valuable time exercising in the gym or going to bed with a headache at night because you're so hungry, then this website is not for you.
You know the feeling. It is late afternoon, you're supposed to go exercise, and you simply don't have the energy.
Or perhaps you've just finished dinner, pushed yourself away from the table, and you're suddenly craving more carbohydrates and sugar.
Maybe you're even one of those people who actually does make it to the gym to workout and does actually eat healthy, but your body just doesn't feel right...you get sick more than you should, you always feel stiff and sore, exercise just feels like a hard chore, and most importantly, no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot get rid of the fat on your abs, butt and thighs.
In the thousands of clients that I've assisted with fat loss and lean muscle toning over the past decade, I've seen the same pattern over and over again - people who are looking for the final solution to lose those 20 pounds, shed that last 1.5% body fat, overcome chronic fatigue, or finally get off a weight loss plateau. The problem is that most of the advice out there in the fitness market is very "run-of-the-mill":
"Just exercise harder."
"Do more cardio."
"Don't eat fast food."
Folks, it's time to go beyond this "run-of-the-mill" muscle-building and fat loss advice. You see, there is a secret when it comes rapidly burning fat, and this secret does not involve spending hours of your valuable time in a gym then going to bad at night with a headache because you're so hungry.
The problem is that most personal trainers, physicians and fitness magazines do not know what you are about to discover. While it certainly is true that in transforming your body nutrition is key, the problem is that when it comes to nutrition, one person's food can be another person's poison.
And this is the secret: Hidden food allergies and sensitivities could be making you highly resistant to weight loss and unable to tone muscle and burn fat, despite your "healthy" nutrition and exercise plan!"
Food allergies? You can actually be allergic to food? And it can make you fat and resistant to weight loss?
That's right. Here's how it works:
Almost everybody on the planet lacks the ability to digest certain foods. You can't help it. It's just part of your genetics. Most of us walk around knowing completely nothing about what our body can and can't handle. But eventually we encounter a food that we are allergic to, and the body can have "difficulty" digesting it.
The results can be disastrous, as you are about to learn.
The most common food allergy triggers are wheat, soy, dairy, whey, eggs, peanuts and fructose. Sure, you may not sneeze, grab your neck, and choke to death when you eat these foods, but what does occur if you happen to be allergic to any of these foods is that large, undigested food particles can cross through your intestinal barrier and appear in your bloodstream.
When your body is constantly exposed to these food allergies it will often:
A)retain water in an attempt to flush the undigested proteins out of the system (thus completely eliminating any "cut" look you want, including those abs) or...
B) store what the body perceives to be "toxic" where toxins always get stored - in fat tissue.
C) eventually be overwhelmed by the levels of toxic food allergy material and build new fat cells to handle the toxic load.
And thus your body turns into a “toxic waste storage depot site". But that's not all.
When these undigested food particles cross into your bloodstream, it is called “Leaky Gut Syndrome” and your body is forced to mount an inflammatory reaction against the foreign, undigested food particles in your bloodstream.
Constant exposure to inflammation and these allergy-triggers can cause your immune system to go into a “Hyper-Alert” state, because your immune system must always be involved in cellular reactions that help the body to fight against the foreign food particles.
And when your body in it's hyper-alert state encounters a flu or virus (for example, on an airplane or in a shopping mall) it will be much more likely to become ill, because the immune system has a much more sensitive reaction. But you're not just more likely to get sick from other people, but you're also more likely to become sick after a hard training session when the immune system is in a hyper-alert state.
Just imagine – if you caught a cold just once every 2 months, you’d could miss 42 exercise days of the entire year. That’s right...42 days that you aren’t able to burn calories, melt away fat and tone lean muscle!
What are some other problems with food allergies? Try these on for size:
-Gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation
-High cortisol levels
-Low blood sugar
-Skin problems (like acne)
-Chronic fatigue or "heavy legs"
Obviously this is a huge problem, even for us that think we're eating "healthy" when we grab soy or whey protein, whole grain bread and fat-free yogurt. In reality, these "health" foods could actually be our worst enemies, sabotaging weight loss and cannibalizing lean muscle.
For years, I would observe these type of disastrous results occuring in my clients, despite what I perceived to be a completely healthy nutrition and exercise plan. Unfortunately, what I had learned in school only scratched the surface of the true barriers to weight loss and lean muscle toning. Other personal trainers, nutrition specialists and even my client's doctors would just scratch their head and tell my clients (and theirs) to exercise harder and eat less!
So, after 4 more "post-college" years of studying and researching unique food sensitivity and nutrition tactics for enhancing rapid weight loss, I came upon the realization that...
...if your body is a “toxic waste storage depot site", it will simply not burn fat. Period!
Armed with this fact, I spent the next several months of my life locked away in my personal training studio, designing a completely unique, holistic and 100% allergen-free diet that was perfectly matched to a zero-guesswork lean body toning program. My goal was to quickly put the human body into a state where your cells would have no choice but to eliminate toxins and fats as rapidly as possible!
This is what emerged...a book, DVD and completely food allergy-free system for placing your body into a rapid fat-burning state within just 21 days. It is called "Shape21: The Complete 21 Day Lean Body Manual."
The Shape21 Lean Body Manual (available as a hard copy mailed to your home or an instantly downloadable e-book) offers a revolutionary new approach, and here's why: rather than separate your nutrition and exercise into two different programs, it combines a workout plan, grocery shopping list, exercise instruction manual and meal menu that shows you exactly how to exercise and what to eat every single day. That means there is zero guesswork - it's all there, in one complete, easy-to-read package that you can keep in your car, gym locker, kitchen table, or grocery store shopping cart!
In other words, while your cells are eating up your body's storage fat as fast as possible, Shape21 is giving you exact instructions for toning, shaping, and hardening the pure lean muscle that begins to appear as a replacement for the fat, all in just 21 days!
Best of all, Shape21 is designed to be applicable for all levels. So each manual includes options for beginner, intermediate, or advanced individuals.
That means that if you have never worked out before, but want to take charge of your life and begin a new exercise and nutrition routine, you can start with the beginner level...
And if you're in decent shape, but need to lose a few percentage points of body fat, or need to find a diet that caters to your busy lifestyle, you'll begin Shape21 at the intermediate level...
Finally, if you are an athlete who wants to see unparalleled increases in speed and power, while retaining a lean sprinter's body and consuming the best possible fuel, the advanced level exercise program in Shape21 will instantly give you a huge performance boost!
Step-by-step exercise and eating instructions are a must, and photos are very helpful. So I designed Shape21 to be exactly this type of fitness and diet manual...here's how it works:
The first few pages quickly provide you with a simple introduction of what to expect and exactly how to use the manual, including a walk-through of how to use the meal plan, workout plan...
...then you find out exactly what you need from the grocery shopping list to follow the meal plan for every single week (and trust me, you'll find everything at your local grocery store - just check-off the foods as you put them in your cart)...
...once you turn to Day 1, you will have access to a comprehensive menu for every single meal of the day, including exact quantities, easy cooking instructions, when to eat and dozens of other practical nutrition tips and tricks for a delicious, healthy and lean-body diet. And since I work with people who have super busy lifestyles - just like you - I've made sure that the menu takes almost no time and effort to prepare...
...also on Day 1, you'll find your complete exercise plan for the day. You'll be provided with a picture of every exercise, exact specifications for the cardiovascular training, instructions for the best time of day to complete the workouts, and how to match up your meal times to your exercise times for the best boost to your metabolism -all closely guarded personal training secrets that have never before been offered in such a comprehensive package...you even receive a DVD along with your book that shows you actual video demonstrations of each workout!
...every single day is just as simple! Your meals and your exercises change in new and exciting ways for all 21 days, and each day is laid out in a clear and easy-to-follow format. You'll never get bored, you'll never have to wonder if you're "doing it right", and you'll be able to literally watch the fat melt away while discovering new strength, speed, and power you never thought possible...
...to help you understand why it works so well, at the end of the manual I've included an FAQ's section that provides you with the science behind the nutrition and the workouts, as well as an exercise index that allows you to quickly and easily look up the page number for any of the 101 exercises included in Shape21...
...and finally, since no single body is alike, every day offers calorie consumption ranges and alternate meals based on body size, as well as your choice of beginner, intermediate, and advanced workout plans, each with varying difficulties of exercise and recommendations for altering exercises in the case of previously injured joints or different levels of strength...
That's right. You can literally take Shape21 with you to the park, family room, basement, or outdoors backyard and complete every single exercise with your body weight only plus one set of weights, whether they be weight plates, dumbbells, or a even a couple of heavy rocks!
In the manual, I provide recommendations on exactly how much resistance you should be using, as well as instructions on how you can substitute one exercise for another, alter exercises if you have injured joints, and change movement patterns to affect the intensity.
Best of all, you get to choose whether you want the Shape21 Lean Body Program delivered as a physical book and exercise DVD that will arrive in your mailbox, or as an instantly downloadable e-book!
I’ve literally done all the work for you.
Not only have I stripped out gluten, milk and cheese dairy products, shellfish, peanuts, allergenic meats, high amounts of soy and all those other potential muscle-wasters, but I’ve literally created an entire delicious 21 day muscle-building meal plan with detailed recipes and it actually tastes fantastic!
You'd be surprised at what you actually can eat and the enormous range of easily accessible foods out there that truly fit into a 100% allergy free meal plan and still allow you to burn fat and build lean muscle.
