The 3 steps I teach trainers and health coaches to help fix any diet problem.

When your eating plan stops working, it’s normal to just feel… stuck. But you can fix almost any diet problem with these 3 steps. (The first one might really surprise you).


I’ve been working in the fitness and nutrition field for 25 years so I can say with certainty that every eating plan breaks down eventually. Kids come along, jobs get busy, family members get sick… LIFE happens.

It’s easy — too easy — to get lost.

But the exact nature of these nutrition breakdowns can vary. So, over the past few years, I’ve worked hard to come up with a formula that’ll fix almost any diet problem.

See, the nutrition “advice” you usually hear in the media and at the gym is often boiled down to buzzwords and slogans. You know the ones:

  • “Just eat whole foods.”
  • “Only eat food that your grandmother would recognize.”
  • “Eat more fat and fewer carbs.”
  • “If it doesn’t run, fly or swim – or it isn’t a green vegetable – don’t eat it.”

But when you’re a real human in the real world — or a fitness professional helping one — slogans don’t get the job done.

Slogans lead to nutritional wheel spinning, frustration, and fat-loss plateaus — or even unwanted weight gain. They lead to:

Should I just quit already?
Why do I suck at this?
Will nutrition always come with frustration and failure?

It’s time to go beyond the clichés and discuss how to really help clients fix a broken diet and start eating better.

To share how we troubleshoot eating plans when they’ve “just stopped working” and you don’t know what else to try.

And, finally, to show you how to use these powerful and purposeful strategies to improve your own eating. Or to help others do the same.

These steps are proven to work — we’ve now tested them with close to 50,000 clients — and some of them may surprise you.


By the way, I gave a seminar on this very topic to fitness professionals in London England not too long ago. Everyone I talked to afterward said the discussion opened their eyes to a more effective strategy for getting results.

Trust me: A better understanding of nutritional physiology will give you a leg up in the fitness game. (It may even get you excited about your career again).
