“Back to Basics: For the Newbies!”
Clovis, In A Nutshell:
- You send me info (age, height, weight, activity level, health goals)
- I create a Custom Nutrition Plan based on your unique needs
- No two Nutrition Plans are the same. Ever.
- You get Custom Macros (Fat, Protein, Net Carbs)
- You hit those Custom Macros using only foods from the Clovis Approved Foods List
- You track everything with the Carb Manager App
- It’s really that simple!
Why Clovis Works:
- Clovis allows you to finally access stored body fat for fuel!
Perfect Paleo Powder:
Hitting Your Macros:
- Just hit your macros each day don’t worry about each meal.
Why No Fitness?:
- This is only true for overweight and obese clients
- If this is you, fitness will work against your fat loss goals!
Why No Grains?:
- All grains are simply “non-human foods!” Period.
- We did not evolve to eat grains and the wreak havoc on our immune systems!
- Plants have defense mechanisms called “Lectins” that destroy our gut health!
Why No Cheat Days?:
- Most of you come to me very, very, sick.
- Your gut needs to heal itself!
- Adding a weekly cheat meal is like reopening a partially healed wound over and over. It’s insane!
The “Salt Shots”:
- Salt is an essential mineral. Without it… you die.
- There is zero evidence that salt causes chronic high blood pressure!
- 3-6 grams of sodium per day for health!
Ordering At Restaurants:
- This makes me laugh because it’s so simple…
- Just order Approved Foods!
- The restaurant works for you, not the other way around!
- Don’t be afraid to modify the menu!
- Order and approved meat and some steamed veggies! All done.
- Pretend to be celiac if you want to! It’s fun.
Eating Healthy is “Too Expensive”:
- This is a full-blown myth and it drives me nuts!
- Let me explain…
Do I have to try Fasting?:
- Absolutely not!
- Fasting is not a required part of the Clovis protocol.
- It is completely optional.
- Don’t make things harder for yourself!
- In the beginning, just hit your macros!
How to Handle “The Haters”:
- My most famous quote of all time…
- “Stop shitting in the punch bowl, you dick!”
- Don’t make your family feel weird… a simple “no, thank you.” is all you’ll ever need!
- Alcohol doesn’t make you fat!
- All the other ingredients you mix with alcohol makes you fat!
- I would rather you drink alcohol every day than fruit juice, soda, diet soda, energy drinks, or your favorite sugar-filled Starbucks drink!
