EET Challenged By Expert re: Metabolic Timing’s “Free Lunch” – Real Weight Loss Case Study

metabolic timing from personal training guide

CASE STUDY 1  Can EET truly deliver a “Free Lunch” using Metabolic Timing?  Respected expert question/comment:

I think the metabolic timing aspect is the “free lunch” in the EET program and is not fully understood, incorporated, exploited or emphasized…here is a disconnect / opportunity :  Your plan essentially says skip breakfast and substitute a light brunch in order to allow the body to burn fat in the morning when glycogen stores are low.  Conversely, the article you sent me on the study at Tel Aviv University had participants eat a large breakfast…So is it no breakfast or big breakfast?  I don’t think there is necessarily a right/wrong here, but I think there is an opportunity to better understand the metabolic timing science and use it to simplify the overall program.

EET’s Reply:  

The studies on timing always include a larger breakfast because there are other studies that say a big breakfast leads to weight loss (SHORT TERM AS USUAL –  SHEESH!!), and then, especially in the case of the most dramatic timing results, phased down carbs later in the day and into nighttime.  That’s ideal metabolic timing–BUT NO ONE WANTS TO LIVE THIS WAY — and everyone who tries it fails LONG TERM — BEHAVIORAL TIMING overrules metabolic timing every single time.  Period.

This is why EET suggests delaying carbs at breakfast (more details in this video).  There’s also some science that justifies delaying carbs:  that you can burn more fat if you don’t get carbs in the way, and delaying carbs is the perfect set up for fat burning exercise before lunch, but that’s all secondary to building a diet plan you can actually adhere to for 5 years or more.  It’s challenging enough to eat a high carb lunch then phase down carbs and all but eliminate them at night to enter “EET Transformation or Fat Loss Time”, but it’s doable.  

Good luck eating your last carbs at 8 AM and not eating high glycemic carbs the rest of the day– maybe you can do it (which would make you a scientific freak of nature) , but I want no part of it–I love my carbs at all times of day too much!  That’s why you want to embrace the behavioral side of The EET Timing Diet and get away from your primary focus on metabolic benefits–those are easy to learn and achieve once you understand how to manage your behavior longer term.

I learned early on that there is a lot more to life than metabolic timing, which is where the other 7 types of timing emerged.  On SOME nights you go low carb, and on other nights you indulge, and you have to be very flexible and practice diligently to make Timing work over an extended period – but the good news is you’re eating without restriction while you learn–so it can be an awesome learning process!  Despite weight loss and fitness success well beyond my original goals,  I am still learning, practicing and improving after nearly 7 years so I know of what I speak!

VIDEO: Exercise Timing Basics On The EET Timing Diet – Things Trainers / Crossfit Won’t Tell You

exercise timing

Motivation, discipline, and enduring painful workouts are not the path to long-term weight loss and fitness success.  This is far more than EET’s opinion.  This is confirmed by every major study involving exercise for weight loss and fitness.  But shattering the myths of  “Just Do It” and “no pain no gain” can’t even crack the top 3 things your Crossfit instructor won’t focus on as they push you for short term results.  We share the top 2 in this video clip taken from our upcoming Exercise Timing episode of EET’s new TV show:  TIME to Get Fit

There’s more, but I recommend stopping there for weeks or even months, until you’ve seen lasting proven progress towards your goals,  as I believe all trainers should.   

However, years of experience tell me to add the obligatory “action” exercise video with me and other EETers.  Why?  If you watched the first video thinking “come on already, just show me the timed exercises!”, and watch the second video seeing EETers who have been successful for YEARS thinking,  “Wow, that’s motivating” or “there’s no way that could work for me” then that’s a huge red flag you need to make dramatic changes in your thinking about exercise.  EET helps you build a lasting exercise program that works for YOU!  But, whatever the exercise,  the first step is to prove you’ve mastered EET’s Must Haves first.  If you want results watch first video again! 

You can learn how EET produces long-term results by focusing on EET’s Guideline #24 Phase It, Don’t Force It — in fact, here’s a page right from EET’s FREE Personal Training Guide to show you how it works:

EET Progressions

 

we hope you’ll learn all about it and other key’s to The EET Timing Diet–here’s how:

Video: Big Bang Theory Shows EET Timing Diet And FREEDOM Are Answer For Weight Loss, Fitness

big bang theory

I’m a Big Bang Theory junkie (though the new season has kinda sucked–also HATE Penny’s hair!!).  I’m also a night munchie junk food junkie. I’ve built 7 years of weight loss success around both!  The EET Timing Diet includes COMPLETE freedom at all times.  This very short video offers some clear specifics that PROVE just how different EET is as  a diet.   That’s why EET has worked for so many people for years vs restrictive diets loaded with rules (aka yo-yo diets) that science proves can never last.

I offered a long list of nighttime munchie foods in my latest post at The EET Community.  Chips, candy, booze, more.  Go check it out if you like — it’s FREE to join!

A Wildly Successful 7 Year Weight Loss and Fitness Plan – Can YOU Do EET Timing?

mr eet oct 2014

What happens when you follow a diet for nearly 7 YEARS full of refined sugar, processed foods, GMO’s, gluten, tons of restaurant and fast food, no calorie or point counting, no portion control, no required exercise, and no support group?  If you’re me, you lose weight and become more fit (including all blood and health markers, and haven’t been sick a single day) beyond your goals, and you go on TV to explain how it all works!  How about you? 

EET personal training guide cover

Tomorrow, if all goes well,  EET will allow anyone who’s interested to see our new Personal Training Guide for the EET Timing Diet.  It explains the basic timing principles and EET Guidelines that I’ve used to successfully manage my weight and fitness for almost 7 years.  It offers a starting point to see if you can lose up to 10 pounds in 30 days -AND KEEP IT OFF — using Timing.  Can YOU succeed at The EET Timing Diet?

 Is it possible you can achieve even better results than I have?  The answer is 

NO

If you are just going to gloss over The Guide, not ask any questions or dig for answers that can work for you to build your successful EET Timing Diet.  You will almost certainly fail if you think you’ve seen all this stuff before or that “it’s just like (fill in the blank) diet”.   If this is going to be your approach I would actually recommend you DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE GUIDE.  Total freedom of choice when it comes to eating and exercise can be very dangerous in the hands of a yo-yo dieter who’s sure they know what they should and shouldn’t do and that all that’s keeping them from their goals is to get more motivated, “suck it up” and try harder to succeed.

MAYBE

If you read through The Guide carefully, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE REVIEWED YOUR GAME PLAN WITH YOUR HEALTH PROFESSIONAL and get comfortable with EET’s unique approach as recommended at the end of the Guide.  If you’ve tried EET before, dig deeper and find out how you could stop wanting to be on a plan that creates weight loss and fitness with NO RULES WHATSOEVER.  Think about that!!  There’s nothing to purchase, just some skill builders that help you see just how different the EET Timing Diet is from anything you’ve tried before.  I would also strongly recommend getting involved in the The EET Community (it’s FREE) to ask questions and get answers from other successful EETers.

YES

If you are ready to COMPLETELY give up on everything you thought you knew about weight loss and fitness and start over.  If you’re ready to thoroughly learn an entirely new way to look at food and exercise.  Again, this process starts by looking in the mirror, asking yourself “how are my current efforts working out for me” and reviewing if this diet is appropriate for your current situation with your health professional.  Speaking personally, getting good at EET can take YEARS, as you try to break all your old beliefs about what you “gotta” do.  Most dieters simply cannot imagine that they don’t know what they need to do to succeed LONG TERM.  I’m not even sure I do, but I can confidently say that I’m closer than most and that almost no one does.  Why?  You know why….

long term weight loss impossible eet slide

I think it’s important you understand that I credit most of my success on EET to the two thoughts I shared in yesterday’s blog post:

1. None of these plans that ask me to be miserable by depriving and restricting myself, or require painful exercise will ever last for me, so I will never again feel forced to follow their rules.

2. I’ll commit to learning all I can about what truly works for weight loss and fitness that can last a lifetime.   That will be my plan for life, and I’ll live with the results whatever they may be.

Will we see you successful 7 years from now with EET?  Guess we’ll see, but, for now, let’s focus on Day 1 which could be tomorrow!  The Guide is FREE Without Registration or Obligation and hopefully will be available for download tomorrow.

Proof You’re ONE THOUGHT Away From Reaching Your Weight Loss And Fitness Goals

OneThoughtAway

Can one single thought change your life?  Absolutely.  About seven years ago, one thought led to my discovery of The EET Fitness Plan, and I’ve been on The EET Timing Diet ever since. That thought is below, but first, so you know it’s not just me, here are actual SINGLE thoughts from others that have led to complete transformations in their weight, fitness and relationship with food:

  • I’ve got 90 days to get my a1C down or they start me on insulin shots.
  • He said he left me for another woman because I let myself go
  • I’m at 90% artery blockage.
  • My triglycerides are at 500
  • I’ve got to lose 25 pounds before they can do the surgery
  • They were laughing at me at the restaurant and I heard what they said about me
  • The Doctor said my cancer had a lot to do with my weight

Does this prove the power of ONE THOUGHT to you?  What would happen in your life if you believed one of those thoughts about you?  My guess based on actual experience is that your food addictions would instantly disappear, your cravings would somehow become a lot less powerful, and your desire to become active and exercise would skyrocket.  Depending on your yo-yo diet history, you’d probably spend a lot of time and money seeking the fastest results to reach your new TOP PRIORITY goal(s).  

And you’d see fast and dramatic results.  All because of one single thought that is so powerful, it stays plastered in the front of your thinking and you finally refuse to let “life get in the way” to keep you from your goals.

pain stressful thought

More Thoughts On One Thought

There’s no doubt all of us are a single thought away from the dramatic weight and fitness transformation we’re seeking.  However, this reality raises two huge questions:

1)  Is it a good approach to wait for a painful, horrible, life changing thought to be the motivation that drives me to a transformation?

2)  Even if a horrible thought makes me want to fully commit to change, will the changes last over a long time?

Though there are rare exceptions, for most, once you get your triglycerides down from 500 to 100, or once you slim down and find a new man who loves you for who you are vs the two-timing bastard, new thoughts start to creep in, and your transformation doesn’t last.  The power of TIME, FOOD and RELAXATION are simply too strong.  You focused on a single thought to create your transformation, and it only takes one new single thought, that the transformation is no longer your top priority, to watch your transformation completely reverse itself over time.

Science tells us that for most people, the impact of one powerful thought for a transformation can be sustained for about 2 and no more than 5 years.  If you’re interested in some of the specific science and research that provides overwhelming proof, we’re happy to share it.  Write us at eetfit@gmail.com.

My Personal 7 Year Transformational Thought

I was very lucky that I never had to face any horrible thoughts that drove me to a transformation.   I was just a really frustrated yo-yo dieter.  So frustrated that my single transformational thought was exactly the opposite.  It was a joyful thought that has been easy to keep as a top priority for all these years:

None of these plans that ask me to be miserable by depriving and restricting myself, or require painful exercise will ever last for me, so I will never again feel forced to follow their rules.

That single thought INSTANTLY transformed me.  I didn’t need to see a single pound lost or health marker improve.  Instead, I got a better transformation.  I was freed from everything I ever thought I knew about weight loss and fitness, because none of it worked for me since it never lasted.    I was forever free to try whatever I wanted, including a diet that always kept my happiness as a priority so I could stay with it!

This led to a second thought that is still my driving force to this day:

I’ll commit to learning all I can about what truly works for weight loss and fitness that can last a lifetime.   That will be my plan for life, and I’ll live with the results whatever they may be.

Six and a half years later, I am still happily following The Pain-Free Guidelines of the EET Timing Diet.  My weight loss has been sustained below my original goal weight, and my fitness level is well beyond my expectations.  

The choice is always yours:  wait for horrible thoughts to drive you into painful plans for transformations that almost never last, or adopt EET’s guiding thought of Pain-Free works for me!  Learn through EET what can work for YOU for life, and replace your horrible, painful thoughts with EET’s Pain-Free Guidelines.  They are built on finding a comfortable, manageable process that can lead you to long-term weight loss, fitness and an amazing relationship with food.

But the only thing that matters is:  What do YOU think?  It’s proven that your next thought may be the one that changes everything.

10 Reasons I Carry A Water Bottle EVERYWHERE For Weight Loss, Fitness, Relationship With Food

IMG_0874

Since 2008 when I discovered The EET Timing Diet, I have carried a water bottle with me wherever I go.  For nearly seven years I have lost weight, maintained the highest level of fitness in my life and have eaten amazing foods without restriction guilt-free at all times. Coincidence?  I don’t think so!  I usually keep the water bottle out of my food pics, but here’s an example pic from  a couple of years ago in Hawaii with an excellent Gyro and fries.  Good Times!

EET’s Pain-Free Guideline #18 NutriFun w/ 10-5-1-1 calls for a glass of water with each meal.  If you have EET’s Book, you can read more details about this Guideline, but that is only ONE of the 10 reasons I carry a water bottle with me at all times.

I have at least 9 more reasons I carry a water bottle, and, rather than just lay them out in this blog post,  I thought it might be fun to see just how many you can name:  

I just got you started with #10 (which is far from the most important reason by the way), and now I invite you to join the discussion at The FREE EET Community today and see if you can tell us why I have developed this habit.  I will reply to all comments asap so we should be able to figure out the 10 reasons in no time!  

The results of carrying a water bottle have been nothing short of world changing for me–could they be helpful for you as well?  9 more reasons might give you your answer so join the conversation and find out.  (note:  Would love to have you join us, but EET never forces anyone to do anything.  If you don’t want to join The EET Community,  I’ll try to update this blog post as we find answers, and post the complete list in the next few days on EET’s Blog)

Am. Cancer Society 2000+ Studies Research: What SCIENCE Says About Processed Foods, GMO’s, Pesticides

cancer society web page

A team of Italian scientists cataloged and analyzed 1783 studies about the safety and environmental impacts of GMO foods—a staggering number.

The researchers couldn’t find a single credible example demonstrating that GM foods pose any harm to humans or animals. “The scientific research conducted so far has not detected any significant hazards directly connected with the use of genetically engineered crops,” the scientists concluded.

The research review, published in Critical Reviews in Biotechnology in September, spanned only the last decade—from 2002 to 2012—which represents only about a third of the lifetime of GM technology.

     With 2000+ global studies affirming safety, GM foods among most analyzed subjects in science, Genetic Literacy Project

genetic literacy project

I finally heard it one too many times.  “You must stop eating processed foods.  And you must eliminate all foods with additives, GMO’s and Pesticides.”   My question is WHY?  The EET Timing Diet has created lots of weight loss and improved fitness for people who choose to eat these foods.  Plus, we’ve dramatically improved diabetics’ a1C as well as those with other major issues like high blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol and digestive disorders like IBS and Acid Reflux.   But with so many freaking gurus and media hype screaming about how dangerous certain foods can be I figured the only potentially valid reason to stop eating these foods must be an increase in the risk of cancer.  

I was pushed past my limits and decided to find out recently when yet another health guru challenged the “eating without restriction” approach to EET.  “You should study how harmful those foods can be, they dramatically increase your risk of cancer.”  Is that so?  Time for more EET Learning Timing (Guideline #8) to see just what science has to say on the matter of foods causing cancer.

This is a great opportunity to show how EET works and how we evaluate science to accomplish our mission:

eet mission

FULL DISCLOSURE:  EET Fitness (and I) are not expressing our personal opinion on the matter if food causes cancer.  We are greatly concerned that many prevailing views on weight loss, fitness, health and nutrition are not backed by consistent scientific findings or at least are far from proven.  These views then greatly harm dieters who are told they MUST restrict their diets which science indicates is perhaps the MOST proven cause of our current obesity and illness crisis.  

EET fully acknowledges that Science can change over time, but to assume it WILL change to support your position is not a proven method to accomplish anything.  We also are well aware of individual cases where dietary restrictions become necessary. For example, I personally must limit tomato consumption in order to avoid acid reflux, however I can eat all the donuts I like without a problem. Yet,  EET will not be starting a movement to ban tomatoes (organic or not).  And I won’t be advising clients who can eat tomatoes without harm they should stop eating tomatoes because I have to limit my consumption.  We believe dieters should stay current with clinical research and that areas where there is conflicting scientific data looked at on a case by case basis. 

And for those who believe there is NO area without conflict in Science, we strongly disagree and can offer proof.  Here is EET’s “gold standard” of scientific data for which there is NO conflicting data.  EVERY study available confirms the following:

 

long term weight loss impossible eet slidenejm carbs futile

Yet far too many dieters who refuse to accept these SCIENTIFIC FACTS are running around telling people to stop eating many foods because high glycemic carbs are the cause of diabetes, gluten is always bad, or certain foods are addictive!  This is NOT a science-backed approach to success!  EET’s mission is built on the premise science must confirm something as consistently as our “gold standard” before we’re willing to present it as fact.  

Now let’s see what EET’s research shows Science has to say about food and cancer.

I started my research at the most logical place.  The American Cancer Association website: www.cancer.org.  I also was tempted to stop there because I was absolutely shocked at what I read.  I didn’t though.  I reviewed a variety of studies and sites to hear all sides of the issue.  You could read the 2000+ studies link above plus here are a few more.  Then below that check out the highlights taken directly from http://www.cancer.org so you can decide for yourself (be sure to check out the two at the end–interesting stuff!):

The Truth about 7 Common Food Additives – WebMD

 Is there any reliable scientific evidence that genetically modified food poses a health risk?  (see comments also)

American Cancer Society Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention

No one study, however, provides the last word on any subject, and single news reports may put too much emphasis on what appear to be contradictory or conflicting results.  The following questions and answers address common concerns about diet and physical activity in relation to cancer:

Aspartame  Does aspartame cause cancer?

Current evidence does not show any link between aspartame use and increased cancer risk. People with the genetic disorder known as phenylketonuria should avoid foods and drinks that contain aspartame.

Bioengineered foods  What are bioengineered foods, and are they safe?

Bioengineered foods are made by adding genes from other plants or organisms to make a plant more resistant to pests, slow spoilage. Some genes improve flavor, nutrient composition, or make the food easier to transport.  tIn theory, these added genes might create substances that could cause harmful reactions among sensitized or allergic individuals. But there is no evidence at this time that the substances found in bioengineered foods now on the market are harmful or that they would either increase or decrease cancer risk because of the added genes.

Food additives  Do food additives cause cancer?

Many substances are added to foods to preserve them and to enhance color, flavor, and texture. New additives must be cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before entering the food supply. Rigorous testing in animals to look for any effects on cancer is done as part of this process. Additives are usually present in very small quantities in food, and no convincing evidence has shown that any additive at these levels causes human cancers.

Irradiated foods  Do irradiated foods cause cancer?

No. Radiation is used more often to kill harmful organisms on foods in order to extend their “shelf life.” Radiation does not stay in the foods after treatment, and eating irradiated foods does not appear to increase cancer risk.

Organic foods  Are foods labeled “organic” more effective in lowering cancer risk?

The term organic is popularly used to designate plant foods grown without pesticides and genetic modifications. At this time, no research exists to demonstrate whether such foods are more effective in reducing cancer risk than are similar foods produced by other farming methods. (note: You can also read about the extensive Standford University Study discussed in this post:  

STUDIES – ALL MYTHS: Gluten Sensitivity, Organic Food Healthier, Glycemic Index, MORE

Pesticides and herbicides  Do pesticides in foods cause cancer?

Pesticides and herbicides can be toxic when used improperly in industrial, agricultural, or other occupational settings. Although vegetables and fruits sometimes contain low levels of these chemicals, overwhelming scientific evidence supports the overall health benefits and cancer-protective effects of eating vegetables and fruits. At present there is no evidence that residues of pesticides and herbicides at the low doses found in foods increase the risk of cancer, but fruits and vegetables should be washed thoroughly before eating.

Sugar   Does sugar increase cancer risk?

Sugar increases calorie intake without providing any of the nutrients that reduce cancer risk. By promoting obesity and elevating insulin levels, high sugar intake may indirectly increase cancer risk. White (refined) sugar is no different from brown (unrefined) sugar or honey with regard to their effects on body weight or insulin. Limiting foods such as cakes, candy, cookies, sweetened cereals, and high-sugar beverages such as soda can help reduce sugar intake. (note: EET would love to show the ACA The EET Timing Diet and the effects of nutrient timing for refined sugar or any sugar for that matter!)

Vegetarian diets  Do vegetarian diets reduce cancer risk?

Vegetarian diets include many healthful features. They tend to be low in saturated fats and high in fiber, vitamins, and phytochemicals. It is not possible to conclude at this time, however, that a vegetarian diet has any special benefits for the prevention of cancer. 

ALSO WORTH MENTIONING:  2 more examples:

Physical activity  Will increasing physical activity lower cancer risk?

Yes. People who engage in moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity are at a lower risk of developing colon and breast cancer than those who do not. Risk is lowered whether or not the activity affects the person’s weight. Data for a direct effect on the risk of developing other cancers is more limited. Even so, obesity and being overweight have been linked to many types of cancer, and physical activity is a key factor in reaching or staying at a healthy body weight. In addition, physical activity has helpful effects against heart disease and diabetes

Why worth mentioning:  Many of the opinionated gurus and the food police who follow them who insist people give up the foods they love are not nearly as demanding about the need to exercise.  Why would they not be screaming you MUST exercise from the rooftops and trying to get the government to force exercise upon us as it’s far more SCIENTIFICALLY proven to prevent cancer than eating processed or chemical laden foods are a cause of cancer.  Now why would that be?  I’ll let you figure that one out – but the answer is obvious.  

Meat: cooking and preserving

Should I avoid processed meats?

Some studies have linked eating large amounts of processed meat to increased risk of colorectal and stomach cancers. This connection may or may not be due to nitrites, which are added to many luncheon meats, hams, and hot dogs to maintain color and to prevent bacterial growth. Eating processed meats and meats preserved by methods involving smoke or salt increases exposure to potential cancer-causing agents and should be reduced as much as possible.

How does cooking meat affect cancer risk?

Adequate cooking is required to kill harmful germs in meat. But some research suggests that frying, broiling, or grilling meats at very high temperatures forms chemicals that might increase cancer risk. Although these chemicals can damage DNA and cause cancer in animals, it is not clear how much they (as opposed to other substances in meat) may contribute to the increased colorectal cancer risk seen in people who eat large amounts of meat in some studies. Techniques such as braising, steaming, poaching, stewing, and microwaving meats produce fewer of these chemicals

Why worth mentioning?  Here is a rare example of a particular type of food possibly increasing the risk of cancer in eaten in “large amounts”.   It’s important to note that the American Cancer Society did not feel research justified saying this about any of the other foods above.   Ironically, processed and smoked meats are not the most villainized.   EET believes dieters should be aware of this information as they consider their meat choices on their EET Timing Diet Plan.    

 There’s a whole bunch more examples on the Cancer.org website.  You can check it out HERE.
