When Do Custom Macros Change?:

Not until I see a significant shift in 1 of 2 things:

  1. Body Weight – Down about 40+ Pounds
  2. Health Goals – If you change your health goals significantly. For example, changing your goal from losing fat to building a bunch of muscle. 

​​Life Without a Gallbladder:

The gallbladder is in charge of regulating the amount and concentration of bile released into the digestive system…

Without it, you cannot absorb fats properly. 

Instead of switching to a low-fat diet, I recommend you aggressively assist the body with fat digestion via proper supplementation

Take 1-2 capsules of digestive enzymes with each meal to start:

These bile salts act as an emulsifier for fatty acids. Only then can the pancreatic enzymes properly cleave the triglycerides to be absorbed by the system.

Very important for those of you living without a gallbladder! 

Why You Can’t Say “I’m Not Having Any Problems”:

People have been so brainwashed by the mainstream that they just blindly accept bad health as “normal.”

This is why people regularly say things to me like, “I’ve never had digestion problems in the past.”

If you are overweight or obese, saying something like that is not true. It’s easy to overlook such an innocent comment and it’s not your fault you may think it’s the truth. But the reality is, if you are overweight or obese, you’re dealing with digestion issues each and every day along with a hose of other issues.

We must accept the problems before we can find solutions!

How to Get Your Loved Ones Healthy:

Remember, not everyone is in the same headspace that you are in and not everyone is at the same point in life that you are in!

Everyone grows and learns at their own speed.

If two individuals are debating a topic and their “end goals” are not aligned… facts don’t matter! No amount of irrefutable facts can change the other person’s mind. Always remember that!

Thanksgiving Biohack:

Use fasting and intense glycolytic activity to make your muscle cells more insulin sensitive which will preferentially shuttle glucose into muscle cells instead of fat cells!

Examples of glycolytic workouts:

  • Body weight exercises – Multiple sets to complete failure
  • Examples: Squats, Push Ups, Pull Ups, Burpees, Jumping Squats
  • Kettlebell Swings
  • 100 Meter Sprints – 6 sprints total
