My Review for The Paleo Coach

paleocoach

The Paleo Coach is written by a coach who for years has worked deep in the trenches. Jason shows up to work everyday with gusto, with drive, with one purpose and one purpose only – to get his job done and that job is to help YOU. Jason has an undeniable understanding and passion for what he does; something that doesn’t always shine through from those who work in this crazy business of helping folks find health.  Jason and I have worked closely together for two years now; and I have yet to see him become tired or complain about what he does.  Instead, Jason continues to learn, research, grow, help, and fight the good fight; every single day.  Simply put, this is why The Paleo Coach is going to change your life.  It was written by a man who wants you to succeed, and refuses to tiptoe around the subject or apologize for what he knows. I was honored when Jason asked me to write the forward for his book and obviously, Jason and I are friends and business partners but this fact does not mean that we always agree.  With that being said; please enjoy my unbiased review of his new book, about to be released on March 5th: The Paleo Coach.

In Chapter 1 of The Paleo Coach, you will NOT find a list of what to eat and what not to eat.  Instead; you’ll get a prescription of perspective.  Jason covers The Aesthetic Goal Conundrum and as I read this section, I realized that if I had been given the opportunity to read this book 10 years ago; my life would have been a heck of a lot easier.  Jason explains clearly how by simply shifting how we think about our goals; looking good can simply happen by accident.  SO TRUE!  Ladies and gentlemen, as Jason simply states; “…not all attractive bodies are small, and not all small bodies are attractive, but bodies that stay attractive for a lifetime are healthy bodies, so attempting to get smaller without getting healthier does not make sense.”  Hallelujah!!!  Jason continues to explain only in his own eyeopening way how You Can’t Fix a Body You Hate and how things like Yo Yo Dieting and severe caloric restriction is always a bad idea.  This section ends with an inspiring story from one of his very own clients, Pam.

Why The Paleo Coach?

The Paleo Coach

*CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!  WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED SHORTLY.  THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE PALEO COACH!

Sarah asked me to tell all of you about my upcoming book, The Paleo Coach, which will be released on March 5.  I decided to give you a peak at the introduction because I think this is the best way to explain how this book is different and why I felt that it needed to be written.  I hope you enjoy it!  After the intro below, Sarah has a few notes regarding some cool giveaways in honor of the impending release!!

Perspective is everything.

If you cannot see a problem for what it really is, how can you expect to find its solution? Nutrition and fitness remain mysterious subjects to the masses because we have strayed from the logical concepts that make up their basic tenets and have come to put our faith in ridiculous ideals propagated by unsubstantiated hearsay and myth. But have no fear, I come bearing epiphanies.

This book is, like most other books, a result of personal passion. There is very little on these pages that I have not said out loud from atop my soapbox over the course of my career—or that is being conveyed by the mainstream nutrition and fitness powers that be, a fact that only further fuels my passion. It saddens me that the methods I, and many others like me, have used to help so many people are often literally the mirror opposite of what those people come to me believing to be true. It disgusts me that so many “experts” can completely ignore so much good science and literally thousands of shocking anecdotal cases in order to leave the same useless, albeit lucrative, protocols in place. It makes me want to scream when I hear nonsense spewing from the mouths of celebrity doctors and trainers who could not possibly have done a shred of research to substantiate their claims. But it warms my heart every time I open someone’s eyes to the truth in terms of their health and fitness. That is why I wrote this book, which is nothing more than my best effort to help you see things differently, to show you how to effectively reach and maintain your health and fitness goals. If I am successful, you will be absolutely astonished by what your body will become.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended my Everyday Paleo Workshop this past weekend at CrossFit Anaerobic in beautiful Laguna Niguel, CA!

The Buzz – Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness

eplf300x150

In December 2011 we launched Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness.  Almost three months later this new venture has been well worth the extra work and effort put into making this program available for all of you.  We could not be more thrilled with the outcome of this amazing program and our hopes for producing a high quality online fitness and nutrition program are now a reality.

Here’s what a few EPLifeFit members have to say about their experiences so far.  These are actual members who are active in the community and can be found sharing and learning on the EPLifeFit forums most days.  Come see for yourself!

Proper Perspective at Work

Laura

* Here’s another great post by Jason Seib!

Sorry for the silence on my part lately.  EPLifeFit is booming and keeping me quite busy.   Excuses, excuses…

I often preach the merits of proper perspective (here, for example) and today I just want to give you a quick example of what can happen if your head is in the right place.  I would like you to meet Laura.  When Laura first came to me she was an avid runner, tried to “eat right”, and hadn’t ever really spent any time lifting weights.  All in all, she was very much the average person to walk through our door – her head was full of common exercise and nutrition myths and she was unhappy.

Announcing Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness!!!!

Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness

Finally, the time has come to announce and introduce to you:

Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness!!Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness

Over the past several months, Jason Seib and I have been working together to create EPLifeFit, in hopes that this will be the missing link for many of you on your paleo journey.  As trainers, we are both incredibly passionate about fitness and how it should be made to fit into a paleo lifestyle and we both have been frustrated and concerned that we simply could not give you exactly what you need; beyond some futile suggestions and blogs written in the form of begging folks to lift weights and get moving.  Of course the questions keep coming; how do we do it, what do we do, what do we need, where do we go?

Jason and I both have families with three children, dogs, chickens, after school functions, before school functions, businesses to run, and lives to live and we know how hard it can be to make this lifestyle work AND add in a fitness plan, so we created Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness which is designed to work for anyone and the answers are now literally at your fingertips.

EPLifeFit is not just about fitness, it’s a community, a support network, a way to access Jason, myself, my husband who is an award winning chiropractor and mobility expert, as well as a team of knowledgable moderators simply by opening up your computer.

EPLifeFit  is also about lifestyle and nutrition, a way to access information that before we simply did not have the ability to give to you; but now we can. I could go on and on but instead, please go check out Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness for yourself, see all that it has to offer, and once you join, we’ll see you there, ready to help.

As always, Enjoy!
