Nutrition Cycling: The Best Diet Ever?

***Special Update: Sample Advanced Fat Burning Protocol and Sample Menu***

First things first, you need to know some of the terminology so watch the video above as it will put you light years ahead of most people in terms of effective nutritional information.

Sample Week

Monday-Tuesday consume FIRE Meals

Wednesday consume FUEL Meals

Thursday-Saturday consume FIRE Meals

Sunday consume FUEL MEALS and a FREE MEAL

How it works

By temporarily removing complex carbohydrates and fruits from your eating plan, the body will burn stored fat at an accelerated rate. Do this too long (beyond 3 days for most people) and the body begins to breakdown muscle tissue and slows metabolism.  Remember too much is not a good thing.  Stick to the plan as outlined for 3 weeks.

Sample Fat Burning Meal Plan

FIRE Breakfast: 3 egg whites & 1 whole egg (cage free) with spinach and 1/8 cup Feta Cheese

FUEL Breakfast: 3 egg whites& 1 whole egg with vegetables and blueberries or apple

FIRE  Mid-AM: Formula-1 Protein (grass fed cows) with 1 tbsp. Greens-X (equal to 5 servings of fruit and vegetables)

FUEL Mid-AM: Formula-1 Protein (grass fed cows) with 1 tbsp. Greens-X and frozen strawberries

FIRE Lunch: Grilled Wild Salmon over Mixed Greens Salad with fresh squeezed lemon and olive oil

FUEL Lunch: Grilled Chicken Breast with baked sweet potato and a steamed vegetables with garlic and lemon

FIRE Mid-Afternoon: Grilled Chicken Tenders and 1/2 avocado

FUEL Mid-Afternoon: Shrimp with lime and sea salt, 1/4 avocado and steamed rice.

FIRE Dinner: Spicy Chili (95% lean grass fed beef, peppers, onions and seasoning)

FUEL Dinner: Spicy Chili (Ground Turkey Breast, Kidney Beans and seasoning)

On this protocol you will not eat within 3 hours of going to bed.


Last week I told you Secret #3 of the 7 Secrets of the Physically Elite.

To review, those who achieve Physical Greatness do this:

Secret #1 Drink at least ½ of your bodyweight in ounces of water per day.

Secret #2 Avoid Processed Foods and Eat Foods Closest to their Natural Source

Secret #3 of the World’s Best Bodies is EAT a RESULTS MEAL 4-6 times per day.


There are 3 types.

  1. FIRE Meals to Detoxify and Burn Fat
  2. FUEL Meals to Build Muscle and Increase Performance
  3. FREE Meals to Keep You Sane

The question that I get a lot is “how do I do this?”

Watch the Video above.

In this video, I share with you specific examples of FIRE, FUEL and FREE Meals as well as how to put them into a complete body transformation plan with my NUTRITION CYCLING PROTOCOL.

The 7 Secrets of the Physically Elite

The 7 Secrets of the Physically Elite (Part 2)

Last week I shared with you the first secret of the physically elite – this one simple strategy can virtually eliminate aches and pains, increase energy and focus as well as speed metabolism by up to 40%!

If you missed it you can check it out here:

Before unveiling secret #2 of the physically elite I want to point out where these secrets came from.  I went back through all of my client files over the last 15 years and identified the differences between those who got results and kept improving and those who didn’t follow through.   After countless hours of researching, I discovered the 7 steps or “secrets” of the physically elite. The physically elite not only achieved body transformation but also kept improving even long after they no longer trained with me.

So what’s the second secret of the physically elite?

It’s simple.  It’s powerful.

The Second Secret of the Physically Elite is ….

They avoid processed foods most of the time and instead EAT FOODS CLOSEST TO THEIR NATURAL SOURCE.

They avoid foods that contain sugar, flour and trans-fats. For example, those who achieve their physical goals avoid fast food, sodas, breads, pastas, beer, liquor, wine, most of the time.  This also includes granola bars, cereals and other “healthy” food that is processed.

So how do you determine how good a food is for you?

The 5-Second Rule

Here’s how it works.  Choose a food, look at it, and then ask yourself “where does this come from?”

If it takes more than 5 seconds to figure out then it’s not good for you.

For example, a baked sweet potato comes from the earth; you clean it off, cook it and it’s ready to eat. It never goes through any machines and is in its natural state.  Sweet potato chips on the other hand are dug up, cleaned off, chopped up, dehydrated, baked in oil and have preservatives added to increase shelf life.

The better option is the baked sweet potato because it is closest to its natural state. At no point are chemicals like preservatives added or is the food processed. The more processed a food is the more nutrients that are stripped out of it.

When you eat foods that are processed like pretzels, potato chips, breads, pasta and fast foods the body does not receive enough nutrients so it’s turns up the brain chemicals that trigger hunger and cravings.

When you eat foods in their natural state like organic fruits, vegetables, free-range meats and wild caught seafood the body receives what it needs and turns off the neurotransmitters that make you overeat. These foods trigger the release of hormones that help make you leaner, more energized and have an even more positive outlook.

Eating Foods Closest to their Natural Source is the 2nd secret of the physically elite.

Next time, I will share with you the 3rd secret.

This secret takes away all of the confusion of eating to burn fat, build muscle and makes you feel AWESOME!

Of all the 7 secrets this one received the most comments. People were blown away by it!

Until next time my friend

Live Greatly,
