Just eat a tablespoon of peanut butter in the morning.

by | Feb 20, 2020


That was the answer I received.

At this point, I was following a nutrition plan that called for 16 hours of fasting and approximately 1600 calories per day.

I was told to take my body temperature for 3 days in a row.

When my average came back very low (I believe it was around 96 degrees), I was told that my metabolism was slowing down.

“What should I do?”

“Just eat a tablespoon of peanut butter in the morning.”

Naturally, I obliged.

For one, the confidence in which that answer was delivered made me feel like it would actually make a difference.

And two, I fuckin love peanut butter.

There were many lessons from that experience.

The obvious: 100 calories of peanut butter is not going to solve for a drastic calorie deficit and metabolic down-regulation.

The less obvious: a confident answer isn’t always an accurate answer.

The even less obvious: fasting in and of itself isn’t the reason you’re making or not making progress. I say this because a lot of people offer it up as the end all be all solution. It’s not. Just like anything, it depends on the context but WHEN you eat has very little impact on your results.

The gift: I had to go through a lot of dark times to eventually find my own way. All of the quick fixes, fad diets, psychological damage, and years of doing things the wrong way allowed me to understand what truly matters.

Now I’m able to help a lot of people avoid the same struggles that I went through. And even more, people who went through similar struggles and didn’t think there was a light at the end of that tunnel.. and we’ve been able to get there.. and beyond.

I decided to document the only way that I know how to create long term, sustainable results for each individual.

The goal, as always, is to impact and change as many lives as possible.

This book will be another huge step in that lifelong endeavor.

Coming soon.

Can’t wait.
