Course Description

Hi my name is Mike Mangialardi and I'm a dieting fanatic. I am an elite powerlifter in the 181, drug tested division. In the off-season, I have to focus on gaining size and strength, yet staying lean. When I get closer to a competition, I usually have to drop about 10 to 15 pounds. Because of this experience, I have become enthusiastic about finding a dieting approach that is easy to follow and backed by science. Unfortunately such a thing is hard to come by.

The truth is that most diets are complex, overly-restrictive, and ineffective. We are saturated with different dieting fads that have brought about unneeded frustrations, struggles, and restrictions. On the other hand, am I offering a supposed shortcut to dieting? No. All dieting will take hard work and consistency to be effective. However, it also doesn't need to be so strict and inflexible.

So what will my course entail?

In my course I will teach you how dieting actually works. Moreover, I will walk you step by step to getting on track to lose fat successfully.

Here's what I am guaranteeing you will walk away with:

  • An ability to track your calories to ensure fat loss and keep you accountable
  • A motivation and confidence to diet with long term success
  • An enjoyment in your fat loss efforts

If you take the time to do my course, I will take the time to keep in contact with you. Whether its answering your questions, giving encouragement, or reaching out to you to keep you accountable I will aid you throughout your fat loss journey.

So join with me on a fat loss journey full of success and enjoyment with this simple, flexible, and effective dieting approach.

  • Download and sign up for MyFitnessPal, a free app that can be downloaded on Android/iPhone or sign up via myfitnesspal.com (optional, will be covered later)

Instructor Biography

Mr. Michael Mangialardi, Elite Powerlifter & Blogger

My name is Michael Mangialardi. I am an elite powerlifter, dieting enthusiast, self-published author, and soon-to-be husband.

Constantly there are new diets coming out, overwhelming the internet. While each diet has its own unique name, there is a strong commonality between all of them. They all tend to be restrictive and far from enjoyable.

Most new diets just put a different spin on heavily restricting certain foods and giving you a select few types of foods to eat

The irony is that dieting is actually a pretty simple principle. It's all about moderation. If you eat more than you burn off, you're going to gain weight. If you eat less than you burn off, you're going to lose fat. Yes, it's that simple.

So let me tell you what my products aren't:

  • Highly restrictive
    • I will constantly reiterate that diets do not have to be highly restrictive.
  • A revolutionary fad
    • This isn't about revolutionizing dieting, because you can't. This is about simplifying dieting to be simple, yet effective.
  • Overly complicated
    • While my dieting approach is simple, it takes some steps to set up. I'm here to help you set up your diet to get started on a simple and flexible dieting approach.
  • Unreasonable
    • I'm not going to pull any tricks, such as taking a picture of myself looking absolutely ripped, to make you think that my program is magic.

Now let me tell you what my courses are:

  • Simple
    • While there may be a slight learning curve, I will teach you how to get on path to a simple diet.
  • Flexible
    • My dieting approach isn't overly restrictive and difficult to follow for social gatherings.
  • Effective
    • Dieting is a simple principle. I am not reinventing the wheel, just sticking to what works.

I have struggled with eating and being in shape. The reason I have had success is because I bust my butt. I know how dieting works, and I am consistent, yet flexible, with it. The reason I am here is to teach you how to diet in a way that works, but that is also reasonable.

Join me and take your first step towards reaching your fat loss goals!
