4 months ago I was 15lbs heavier. Since I went back to our nutrition plan and designed our new workout regimen, I leaned out and easily stay here.
I eat lots of potatoes and lift heavy weights and I still lose weight. *I’m not recommending that to just anyone by the way. Just sayin, it’s what I do and I know it sounds opposite of what most people think would happen. Women, especially, get nervous in training because they think they will bulk if they lift weights!
I can tell you that our workout regimens, especially our new redesigned style since March, will not bulk you!
I’m down 15lbs back to the weight I feel best at, hovering around 175lbs. I would never lie to you. It’s not just about the workouts. Most importantly, it’s about nutrition. Most of your results come from what you put in your mouth.
#1 REASON I LEANED OUT IS BECAUSE WE EAT A WHOLE30 LIFESTYLE
We eat real foods that come straight from the earth. God has created everything we need and His foods taste amazing when you change your pallet from nasty processed food to organic, non gmo, fresh, Whole Foods.
I eat lots of potatoes as my main carb source. I don’t eat grains or rice (rarely) anymore. We also stay away from dairy and gluten. It’s a lot to explain but here’s what’s cool…
My wife Coach Amber is coaching people through her Whole30 Nutrition Challenge again. She’s starting the next one on Sept 7. This is how she teaches people how we eat.
If you sign up, you’ll get an email or text before September 7th with a link to the private FB coaching page. This is where you’ll get all the information, coaching, and encouragement you need to stay accountable!
#2. Our HD Shred Workout Style
Now, eating right changes your body from the inside out. You lose weight, inflammation, and body fat. Working out is what redefines your body, keeps your muscles and joints strong and lean, and accelerates fat burn to keep altering your body composition.
Even though I lift heavy weights, I don’t bulk because we specialize in high rep, fast paced, strength endurance workout protocols. If you need help and want to learn more about how we do it, check out our FULL FOLLOW ALONG HD SHRED 8 WEEK PROGRAM.

#3. I also do a mock fasting protocol
I would be lying if I didn’t share the fact that I play around with a fasting regimen too. I’m a Whole30 lifer, I’m a total body athletic shred style exerciser, and I also mix in fasting protocols to optimize my nutrition and maximize my longevity.
It’s a lot to explain and I can’t do it here. I will definitely put together a separate blog to detail everything I’ve learned about fasting; both the good and the bad. It’s not for everyone so don’t try it unless you fully understand it. What turned me on to it is the fact that it is biblical. The spirit is definitely enhanced and strengthened when done right.
Tactic: in general, most people can take a standard 12 hour fast from food between dinner and their next breakfast. For example, done at 7pm and don’t eat again til 7am the next morning (We shouldn’t even call it a fast). It lets your body adequately digest all your food and get to a nice fat burning state. Digestion takes a lot of energy and your body needs a long break daily.
In summary, don’t be afraid of carbs. But make sure your carbs are wholesome and real from fruits and veggies. Don’t be afraid of weights either. It’s a matter of how you use them.
