    What Is Paleo?

    The paleo diet takes the modern foods that we have available in today's society, and models it after how our ancestors ate in the stone age during what we refer to as the hunter-gatherer era.

    It is not uncommon for my clients and students to lose 5-10 pounds in the first WEEK of changing your diet to paleo. (*see the testimonial below)

    Why Paleo?

    If you haven't yet heard about paleo, you are about to. Paleo is not only one of the most effective diets you can use to lose weight, it is hands down one of the most effective eating lifestyles that we have seen in the history of mankind. This IS NOT another trendy fast, cleanse, juice diet, 30 day diet, or 3 week program to lose weight.

    This is a lifestyle weight loss solution.

    This diet is for safe, effective, and sustainable weight loss. Paleo enables you to lose all of the weight that you have been trying to get rid of for months and years now.

    Want to know the best part?

    One of the best parts about the paleo diet is that you DO NOT have to COUNT CALORIES to lose weight.

    I try to get into contact with every new student I have on all of my courses to find out what their greatest goals and challenges are. One of the BIGGEST questions I get is...

    “Can I lose weight without counting calories?"

    The answer is a resounding YES!

    By focusing on eating real foods that your body recognizes and has no trouble digesting, the weight will seem like it's falling off of you. You won't have to journal or track a single calorie on the paleo diet, and you will lose weight seamlessly. Losing weight has never been so easy.

    Exercise on the Paleo Diet

    Want to know something else that is really incredible about the results that you can see on the paleo diet? You DO NOT have to exercise to lose weight on paleo.

    Lose Weight on Your Time: Your Personalized Solution to Lose Weight

    From asking most all of the students who's primary goal is to lose weight, I know that many of you are extremely busy with your work, career, business, family, passions, obligations, travel, and hobbies to find time to workout or go to the gym.

    Exercise is a huge commitment to lose weight, and it can take a lot of time and energy. That means it can also take time away from some of the most important things and people in your life.

    With the paleo diet you are going to save hours every week of...

    • Driving to the the gym and back
    • Planning your workout
    • Finding a parking spot
    • Fighting for machines and weights
    • Showering again
    • and fixing your post-workout meal

    How Much Weight You Can Lose On Paleo

    You may be thinking, “I have a lot of weight to lose. Can I really drop 20, 30, 40, 100+ pounds without counting calories and working out?"

    You absolutely can!

    I have trained hundreds of clients in person and thousands online who lose weight on the paleo diet, without exercising one bit.

    In fact, I just got this message last week from one of my Udemy students who is losing weight on my paleo diet challenge.

    “I know the title sounds a bit over-the-top but it is actually true. I'm one of those people that Jack mentions in the course who don't have time to exercise so I decided to give his 10 day food challenge (my paleo diet challenge) a go. It went so well for me I decided to stick with it. I've been going for 7 weeks now and I've lost just over 6 kilos (13 pounds) and counting. Without any exercise whatsoever. I got rid of processed foods, I eat very little dairy now (I can't resist a bit of cheese every now and again!), I make decent healthy snacks to eat during the day, make sure I have breakfast every day, drink plenty of water and green tea and it has made a huge difference. I feel better and have more energy but most of all, the weight is coming off. I haven't set any mad targets, I see this as a lifestyle change rather than a diet, I'm looking at it long term. I don't want to be in shape just for summer. I want it to be a permanent thing. I know that at some point I will need to do some exercise to get all the weight off but it's going to be so much easier with the start I've got from Jack's plan."

    -Paul W.

    Does that busy schedule sound familiar?

    Isn't that great news that you can lose weight on the paleo diet without having to count a calorie or set foot in the gym to exercise?

    Food for thought

    Weight loss is governed 80-90% by what you are eating. The last 10-20% covers stress management, exercise, and supplementation which can enhance your weight loss, but they are not necessary to lose weight.

    If you have been struggling to lose weight, lose body fat, and trim inches for months or years but don't have time to, this solution is for you.

    30 Day Trial

    If you aren't happy with the results you are seeing on this course, I want you to find the best solution FOR YOU to lose weight. The paleo diet is a great solution for weight loss, but I realize that this program isn't the best fit for everyone.

    That is why if you aren't happy with your results, you have the Udemy 30 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee.

    What do you have to lose?

    What are you waiting for?

One of the most interesting facets of the paleo diet, is that it was "discovered" thousands of years ago, but it wasn't starting to get attention and research until the mid 1980's.

In the last 10 years or so paleo has gone from a diet in its infancy, to possibly one of the most important scientific and cultural movements in dietary history.

What is the Paleo Diet?

As I said in the history of the paleo diet, this diet has not been in research and testing for that long, but has already proven its mettle in the hard results it delivers.

Many of you have heard about paleo in the health community because it is in talks everywhere on the internet. It is hard to find a health and fitness expert within the field that hasn't discussed the benefits, costs, research, and history behind the paleo diet. If you have a friend in Crossfit or have taken any Crossfit classes, you have probably noticed how "paleo" has grown synonymously with the Crossfit community. They are huge advocates of the health benefits that the paleo diet delivers in terms of performance and recovery.

Preview 03:45

The number one reason that paleo works is simplicity. You are giving your body the foods that it was meant to recognize and digest. There are no synthetic ingredients, lab made sugars, processed starches, pasteurized dairy, and foods that your body has trouble digesting.

By removing the foods in your current diet that cause your body to gain weight, add body fat, become frail, and tax your immune system, you will be functioning at a whole new, optimal level that you have never experienced before. The weight will seem to fall off of you.

Let me first say that there is a ton of information out there in the dietary world as to why grains and bread are horrible for weight loss, and why they are great for weight loss. For the purposes of the paleo diet and the research that I have found on it, you should NOT be consuming grains while you are trying to lose weight on this program.

*Disclaimer: Before making any changes to your diet, you should ALWAYS consult your doctor or physician.

Just speaking from personal experience, I do not think that grains are inherently bad. Personally, I haven't had any issues digesting them, that I know of. What I do know is that I have Pretty much cut grains and dairy out of my diet for the last 4 years, and I have never been this strong, this lean, and this energetic at any other point in my life.

Though, recent science is started to prove otherwise.(*Take note of the information presented in this lecture and the book excerpt in the reference section)

I am a big believer in that different foods are good and bad for you depending on what your goals are and when you want to hit them.

Here's what I will tell you about my personal experience with grains, on me and my clients.

When I or my clients want to gain weight and muscle mass, here's what we start eating.

  • Bread
  • Rice
  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Pasta
  • Protein and nutrition bars

When I or my clients want to cut weight, here's what we start eating.

Lean meats (and even fatty ones): chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish, bison, bacon, sausage, chorizo, duck etc.

Healthy fats: eggs, extra virgin olive and coconut oil, avocado, nuts, and seeds

Vegetables: Peas, green beans, spinach, romaine, broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, asparagus, peppers, zucchini, squash, butternut squash, brussel sprouts, beets, cabbage, turnip greens, mustard greens, cucumber, carrots, celery, eggplant, artichokes, onions, etc.

Fruits: Apples, Apricots, Bananas, Berries,Cherries, Dates, Grapefruit, Grapes, Lemons, Limes, Nectarines, Oranges, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Watermelon, Dried fruit (*in moderation), Pumpkin, etc.
The horrible truth about grains...

So now that we have covered why grains aren't great for you in the sense of losing weight or your health in general, let's sum up what we have learned.

  1. Grains like wheat, rye, and barley have built in defense mechanisms that make small tears in our stomach and intestinal lining.
  2. The lectins in grains damage the villi and microvilli in our digestive system, which eventually decreases our body's ability to absorb and utilize essential nutrients.
  3. Phytates in grains soak up things that we need like calcium, iron, and zinc. This can eventually lead to reducing our bone density (osteoporosis), anemia, and damaging our immune system.
  4. Our body treats the intact lectins (like WGA) that pass through our system as a threat and create antibodies to fight them. We potentially end up developing allergies and autoimmune disorders because of this reaction.
  5. The proteins in grains (gluten) contain a similar amino acid structure to proteins that are in other foods (eggs, nuts, seeds, meat. etc.). Because of the similar amino acid makeup, our antibodies may start to fight these otherwise benign foods that were once useful to our system, and you may develop allergies to things like beef and apples.
To learn more about the effects of wheat, rye, and barley on our system, I would highly recommend taking a look at this interview and book excerpt from Tim Ferriss and Robb Wolf.

How Gluten DESTROYS Your Digestive System

Dairy is supposed to be healthy right? Foods like cottage cheese, yogurt, low fat milk, and certain kinds of cheeses are rumored to be great for weight loss, but recent research has shown us differently.

A Strange Truth

Did you know that we are basically the only species on the planet that consumes other mammal's milk? That fact on it's on is pretty odd, but that still doesn't explain the science that shows dairy is NOT ideal for weight loss.

The Facts

  1. 75% of people on this planet have issues digesting dairy products
  2. Most dairy products are high in saturated fat
  3. Some are high in sugar
  4. Many dairy products are high calorie
  5. There is no conclusive scientific evidence that proves that the calcium in dairy products improve bone strength and bone density. More benefits for that have been seen in testing with Vitamin D.
  6. Populations that consume dairy frequently have been seen to be at higher risk for conditions like osteoporosis, type I diabetes, heart disease, certain kinds of cancer (lymphoma, thyroid, prostate, ovarian), sinus problems, allergies, and constipation or diarrhea.
Putting it all Together
Not only is diary less than ideal for weight loss, it can potentially cause other health complications that will lower your quality of life and decrease your longevity.

*See attached for your downloadable paleo food guide.

One of the best aspects of the paleo diet is that you are NOT REQUIRED to count calories. By shifting your diet to focus on real foods that your body is meant to recognize, you will notice a dramatic change in your body composition, weight, and waistline in as soon as the first week.

I have had several students get into contact with me this month reporting that they have lost 5-10 pounds in the first 7-10 days on this diet.

How you Can Stop Counting Calories Forever

There's one food group that we really cannot get enough of on the paleo diet: VEGETABLES. In the US specifically, we do not include enough green, nutrient dense, fibrous, cruciferous, vegetables in our diet. I am aware that other countries are suffering the same problem.

Vegetables are essential for weight loss on the paleo diet because they are

  1. Nutrient dense
  2. Low calorie
  3. High in fiber
  4. Very filling
  5. Easy to digest
  6. Can taste great with little added effort and time.
*See section 6 for how to make the paleo diet taste incredible.
The One Food You Can't Get Enough Of

If your goal is weight loss, you are already well on your way to hitting your weight loss goals by mastering the paleo diet. In case your goals include losing body fat and getting ripped, here is one very important rule of thumb that you can use.

To fin-tune the paleo diet for fat los, we need to minimize the amount of fruit that you are eating. Fruit isn't inherently bad, it is great for weight loss which is why it is on the diet plan. The truth about fruit is that it is high in natural sugars, so that makes it less than idea for losing body fat, getting ripped and toning up.

If your goal is getting ripped, see if you can eat less than 20-30 grams of sugar per day. Or if you don't want to check your label for grams of sugar, focus on only eating one piece of fruit per day.

Weight Loss on Paleo: Fine-Tuning 101 for Fat Loss

Lean meats (and even fatty ones): chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish, bison, bacon, sausage, chorizo, duck etc.

Healthy fats: eggs, extra virgin olive and coconut oil, avocado, nuts, and seeds

Vegetables: Peas, green beans, spinach, romaine, broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, asparagus, peppers, zucchini, squash, butternut squash, brussel sprouts, beets, cabbage, turnip greens, mustard greens, cucumber, carrots, celery, eggplant, artichokes, onions, etc.

Fruits: Apples, Apricots, Bananas, Berries,Cherries, Dates, Grapefruit, Grapes, Lemons, Limes, Nectarines, Oranges, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Watermelon, Dried fruit (*in moderation), Pumpkin, etc.
Putting it All Together

One of the best things about the paleo diet is that 99% of you won't have to count calories to lose weight. Unfortunately, everyone eventually hits a plateau in their weight loss where their progress stagnates. As you lose weight, your body requires less calories to maintain it's new weight, which typically leads to a natural lowering of your resting metabolism.

When that happens, you have no need to fear or get down. You already have one simple, portable, awesome, and free tool that you can take with you anywhere that will get you back on the right track.

Your hand!

Your hand is actually the perfect measuring tool to size up your portions for every meal.

Your plate should consist of...

  1. 1-2 palm sized servings of protein
  2. 1-2 fists of vegetables
  3. 1-2 cupped handfuls of fruit
  4. 1-2 thumbs of healthy fats

Even if you are a seldom weekend drinker, alcohol can dramatically inhibit your ability to lose weight. Follow these tips and pointers to minimize the amount of damage that a few drinks can do to your weight loss goals.

NEW! How alcohol affects your weight loss goals

This is one of my favorite topics when it comes to losing weight. So how much protein do you need to be eating to see the best weight loss results?

Depending on who you ask, you are bound to get different answers for this question. Some research has shown the BARE MINIMUM amount of protein that you need to eat to preserve your muscle mass while losing weight is approximately .4 grams per pound of body weight.

I would personally recommend eating between .8-1.0 grams of protein per pound of body weight, or making sure that 40% of your daily calories consist of protein. The reason is that protein is really filling, functional to your body, and is digested very slowly so that your body will hardly store any of it as glycogen or fat.

How many grams of protein do you need to lose weight?

When you are losing weight, it is ideal if you can supplement your diet with resistance training or weight lifting. Resistance training will help you build lean, sculpted muscle tissue that will burn more calories at rest than fat tissue. The problem with losing weight by just changing or diet OR just by doing cardiovascular exercise is that eventually you are going to see your resting metabolic rate (RMR) begin to slow. Resistance training and weight lifting will help you keep your metabolism burning on high.
