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.

Paleo Pals: Jimmy and the Carrot Rocket Ship

PaleoPals_cover

My latest labor of love, Paleo Pals: Jimmy and the Carrot Rocket Ship is now off to print with a release date of February 14th!  I had so much fun writing this book and it was truly a family driven project with Jaden and Rowan patiently listening over and over again as  the story developed.  My little ones were always eager to give their important and wise feedback that only an 8 and 4 year old can give, while my oldest son Coby and my husband John were instrumental with the development of this book.  Thank you so much to my awesome little family for your undying support of my never ending ideas…

Now, check out this video that will give you a sneak peak of the Paleo Pals!!

You can now pre-order Paleo Pals from Amazon or Barnes & Noble and I’m also super excited to announce that I most likely will be going on a book tour during the release week of the Paleo Pals!  Exact dates and locations will be announced as I find out more details.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and my hope is that the Paleo Pals will be the superheros that your family has been hoping for.
