Course Description

When was the last time you were “in the zone" from the time you woke up until the time went to sleep? Why don't you feel like that everyday?

Each day you make hundreds of small decisions that can either promote energy or sap it. Most of these are made without you realizing the consequences. Eating the wrongs types of foods at the wrong times of day can be kryptonite to having long-term energy.

The fact is that some people need to “be on" more than others. If you work long hours, have a busy social life, have a family that requires your attention, or need to complete copious amounts of schoolwork, then tailoring your nutrition to maximize your energy is critical.

Many factors contribute to your energy level throughout the day, but the biggest one is what you put into your body, how you fuel yourself. This course breaks down how to optimize every decision you make regarding your nutrition in order to have the maximum amount of energy possible. It covers a range of situations that commonly befall busy professionals.

Most people know, deep down, what's healthy and what's not. The problem is that most of the time, the healthiest option is not convenient, or even possible. This course illustrates the best course of action for any situation.

The course provides a framework for exactly what makes you tired and how to avoid and counteract those causes. But even more importantly than a blueprint for decision-making, this course is actionable. The information is broken down into 11 lectures with a total of around 1.5 hours of content. Each lecture will provide you with specific and actionable takeaways that can be implemented into your daily regiment immediately.

A few things you'll learn in this course:

  • What to do before and during flights to avoid jet-lag
  • Why we go into “food comas"
  • How to get the most out of a protein shake
  • Meal timing for maximum energy
  • Ideal macronutrient structures for each meal
  • Most effective uses of caffeine

This is just a small sample of what this course has to offer. The information is beneficial to anyone looking to improve his or her health and daily output.

If you have any questions as you're going through the material, or even additional content requests, feel free to let me know. I will personally respond, add the items to the course and demonstrate how you can apply this information directly to your life. So sign up now.
