The Straight Truth About Getting Your Dream Body This Year

the straight truth about getting your dream body in 2014

We’ve been given some truly horrendous health advice.

Look, for the longest time people have been spouting the same old garbage over and over and over.

“Eat less, move more.”

“Exercise 30 minutes a week, and eat less red meat.”

“Eat low carb, eat low fat, go vegan.”

… But you know what’s funny?

You know why all this stuff fails, over and over and over?

You know why I get emails like this:

“Since being pregnant 5 years ago I am a mess. I have chronic hip, back and knee pain, tight muscles, and misalignments all over the place. I’m also sleep deprived and low on energy so I eat sugar because I’m always tired which makes me more tired and not exercising because I’m too tired – vicious cycle!

I love sports but I got horrible knee pain after trying P90x and other extreme workout regimes, I need to heal in order to lose weight but having problems losing weight because I’m injured!

I also feel like I have no time, the kids make life so hectic. I know a few minutes here and there would be better than nothing but I’m feeling defeated.

I need to do something, I look and feel awful, still 25lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight and 50lbs above my ideal weight. Help?”

… It’s because the current health and weight loss model isn’t working for people.

In fact, after hundreds of conversations, tens of thousands of emails, and dozens of interviews with case studies of people that successfully lose weight and keep it off…

I’ve realized there are two things that separate the real success stories from most people.

Two Things Success Stories Do Differently

Alright, so the health industry has got it all backwards right?

Here’s why:

These “experts” assume you just need more “what.”

More diet tips and tricks.

More ways to trick yourself into eating less.

More ways to sneak metabolic-burning tips into your daily life.

More ways to burn an extra 12 calories on your way to the bathroom at work.


The vast majority of you already know what you should be doing.

These experts constantly give you the WHAT.

… But never the HOW.


So I got to thinking: I spoke with HUNDREDS of people, successful weight loss stories, people who failed or relapsed, extreme success stories (100+ pounds lost or more), and many other people.

And I found two key trends:

#1 Real success stories understood that weight loss is a hugely psychological battle. If you don’t address the underlying psychological aspects of weight loss, you’ll fail long term.

#2 The most successful case studies that lose, and maintain weight loss, focus on systems and habits… NOT diets, insane exercise, or other fads.

Let me give you a very basic example:

Your social life is a system.

Whether your systems are currently set up to let you eat wings, pizza and beer 5x a week is a habit and system you have consciously (or unsconsciously) created and cultivated.

The most successful weight loss stories have created systems and habits in their favor – rather than using massive willpower and effort.

Watch the video to see what I mean.

Now in dream body, opening in a few weeks, the ENTIRE PREMISE is built on this.

Yeah we need the what. Yeah we need to know what to eat, how much, how to balance your hormones, etc. etc. But the how is what we really need.

How do you actually make these changes?

How do success stories take information they KNOW they should be doing… and actually do it?

And most importantly, HOW do you maintain this stuff, these habits and systems, long-term?

I’m going to be teaching you these strategies in the next few weeks – to make sure you don’t miss them, make sure to get on the dream body early notification list.

What To Expect in the Next Few Weeks

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to help you conquer some of these big issues relating to:

– Why laziness, lack of willpower and being unmotivated don’t matter – and how the most successful deal with these three barriers (hint: they’re overrated)

– 3 repetitive, annoying, disabling myths that you need to remove from your mind

– Case studies like Sol, Amanda, Lauryn, Lamine, Daniel, John, and others – who lost over 100 pounds, and kept it off years later… without calorie counting or living on dumb fad diets. Real case studies from real people with real limitations (single mothers, 300 pounds to six pack, being surrounded by “unhealthy” social networks, etc.)

– What you should actually be eating to see these kinds of results – that’s also great for your health, your longevity, and for reversing disease and chronic health conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.)

– Detailed exemples of these systems the case studies embodied to see these kinds of results… and maintain weight loss and amazing health years later

Here’s What to do Right Now

  1. One system I will create is.. to bulk cook a weeks worth of low carb high fat/protein food.

    1. Awesome Craig!

      I personally do this 2x a week. Usually Sunday night (takes about 1-1.5 hours), and then one other day during the week.

  2. I take a picture of everything I eat. This simple tiny step forces me to make a plate and accept that I am going to eat something. It has made me more mindful of what I’m eating. And if I’m taking a picture of it I am forced to make a plate. So I’m not standing and eating whole I prep anymore and I’m not eating at the fridge anymore. It’s amazing how this has worked for me.
    So if I am grabbing a bite of a cookie I have to take a picture of it. I really don’t want to do that. So my pictures are of nice meals.
    At the end of the day I have a photo log of my food and I can make a calculation if my macros and how I did.
    I have lost 12 pound since march because this has forced me to be more mindful. Since I haven’t wanted to take that picture of that cookie. So I just haven’t had that cookie.
    A lot of big salads and no more mindless eating.

    1. Mary, LOVE this. That’s dedication right there.

      What an awesome idea – keep me posted with your progress in the next few months too! Can’t wait to hear how it’s been going.

  3. I don’t know if I can prepare a whole weeks worth of food in a day but I’ll start by preparing my lunch the night before work. If not I’m ordering out and as much as I think it’s healthy as in ordering salads, I feel better making my own food.

    1. Awesome Nadine!

      Doesn’t have to be extreme – remember the point is that you’re creating a system, a habit, that will be with you YEARS later. The smaller you start, the better, because you’ll maintain it.

  4. Thanks Alex. I think you’re dead right about systems and habits being the key to changing your lifestyle. We’re creatures of habit and tend to take the path of least resistance, so we might as well make that path the right one! I’m looking forward to the next stage of your programme.

    1. Awesome Jayne! Glad you’re on board. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

  5. I will meditate before bed to ensure a stress free mind before trying to sleep (I have major issues sleeping)

    1. Awesome Cat!

  6. One system I’m going to start using is keeping a photo of my goal with me always.

    1. Awesome Sylvia! Keep me posted with how well it works 🙂

  7. This program looks interesting so does your Food Control Program. What’s the difference? (have read more about your FC program but not sure what this one is about)

    1. Hi lydia,

      The food control program is specifically for people that have cravings or emotional eating.

      Dream Body is a total overhaul, it’s intense – and we focus on the 6 key habits/systems that I discovered after interviewing dozens of people that lost 100+ pounds naturally, without fad diets, and kept it off. You also get a daily habit lesson video/text in Dream Body.

  8. one system i will implement to change my life is to prep food. i always leave it to the last minute and then i never cook and just get takeaway instead

    1. Awesome, love it Eden!

  9. I’m going to plan meals better. I shop and cook for 5 – 6 people. I am going to try your idea of food prep twice a week. Even if I don’t do all the cooking on those days, I think having some quick healthy foods prepared will help. Better to have carrots and celery ready for a snack than to go after cheese and bread ! And having some healthy meals cooked up will make my week less stressful. One more thing off my plate, so to speak : ) ! I read your book and have been getting your emails. I haven’t followed anything long term yet, but I’m not giving up. Thank you for your help.

  10. I have the goal to prep my lunch/snacks for the next day before going to bed. The problem arises when my motivation is lacking and I just tell myself I’ll handle it in the morning — i’m not a morning person so that never works out to my benefit. I look forward to more tips to potentially override my laziness and lack of willpower/motivation when it comes to forming those habits I know are better for me and my family.

    1. Hey Shannon,

      Totally feel yourself there, and yes, hah I do this all the time too.

      Have you seen this video on willpower too? http://modernhealthmonk.com/how-to-boost-your-willpower/


  11. I am studying engineering and I am staying in hostel then how can I plan my diet I am 80kg in weight and 5″10 height

  12. I’m going to start going to the gym at regular times, instead of it being random 🙂
