To date, I’m the author of 9 books that have been published by large publishing houses. Six of the titles have my name, and another three have been ghost-written. And almost every one would be considered a diet book.
In that time, I’ve realized that while many books have some good information, they overcomplicated the message that really needs to be spread. From why we gain fat to how to build muscle, low carb diets to high protein foods, how to live longer and fight disease, I’ve read it all.
A big reason so many people struggle with diet and exercise is because the majority of diet and exercise books have overcomplicated the real issues.
So I put together the world’s simplest book proposal, which has been rejected over…and over…and over again.
At first, I thought it was me. But then I was reminded that 3 of my books have been “best sellers,” and one of them even hit #4 of the New York Times best seller list.
Then I saw this message the other day on Facebook.
Because no one will take the book idea, I’m publishing the idea here for free to fight back against ideas like activated charcoal (no, it won’t detox your body) and every other ridiculous, money-driven cause that has a terrible ROI for your health.
Solving The Diet Book Crisis
The hook: A big reason so many people struggle with diet and exercise is because the majority of diet and exercise books have overcomplicated the issue, resulting in more stress and worry, billions of dollars spent on supplements, and creating inaccurate scapegoats (Carbs, dietary fat, gluten, lactose, “toxins”, laziness, dessert, etc.) that inevitably lead to diet failure and learned helplessness. The result: too many people feel their bodies are broken, nothing can change, and internally they struggle with how they look and feel.
Want a better, healthier life? Forget what you’ve learned and just apply these 10 simple lessons.
Eat proteins, vegetables, and fats.
Ignore all detoxes, cleanses, and magic pills. Save your $$
Accept that there is NOT “one problem” that causes weight gain or makes weight loss difficult.
Move/exercise to fight stress—the type of exercise is your choice, but do it often.
Be good to others.
Embrace imperfection, with diet, exercise, and even your appearance. It’s OK. You’re human. Bad days happen. -Repeat often.
Sure, it’s short. But when the advice is applied with clients, I’ve seen crazy results. Since no publisher wants it, you can take it for free. Try it out and tell me how it works.
