You know, it’s crazy, since I’ve been doing these challenges, only 10% of my clients have been men! (And probably half were results from their female significant others making them do it!)
What’s up with that?
Well, I’m not a guy, so I can’t say for sure, but from my conversations with my Jon, he tells me that most guys really only think about hitting weights at the gym, and think eating pretty much whatever is okay to bulk up. A few realize that eating absolutely whatever you want won’t get the results you need (abs are made in the kitchen!)
Protein and healthy fats are a must for most men’s lists, which is prevalent in our No Sugar, No Sweat challenge, so what’s the missing link?
For most, sugar isn’t always top of mind. Sure, men and women alike can have a sweet tooth, and men and women both don’t always understand how different foods including carbohydrates and dairy break down into the body as glucose. Sugar may not be what you think of when you think of pasta (even if it’s whole wheat!)
In fact, carbing-up is quite prevalent in a lot of men’s fitness recommendations, promoting breads and grains, when good carbs (like sweet potatoes, other veggies, and fruits) release glucose a little more slowly, and help maintain blood sugar without the bloat.
So, for this post, I’ll share Jon’s testimonial of how he felt following a few rounds of a No Sugar, No Sweat challenge, and for you ladies reading this, share it with your significant others 🙂
“Well first off, I am down 5.5 pounds (I know it’s not as much as some, but I’m a guy) and I’ve noticed more lean muscle definition we started 21 days ago.
Second, my focus, concentration, and mental clarity have skyrocketed. I am able to study easier, make wiser life decisions, and actually read for long periods of time. (Yeah I am reading now, crazy right?)
Third, I sleep like a baby – and not a whiney baby, but a cute and quiet little snooze monster. It’s been awesome!
Lastly, I feel like a champion! Guys take note: I’ve noticed a major increase in my testosterone levels, simply from eating whole foods that work in sync with my body and not against it. This means a few very noticeable things.
1) I am stronger, faster, and leaner. (In the few times I visit the gym)
2) I have waaay more confidence in my personal life than I have ever had before. (Game changer)
3) Other people notice as well! (Like a boss)
Personally, I am not stopping. Nicole and I have decided to take this thing as far as it will go and try to change as MANY lives as we possibly can.
But we need your help! If you have benefited from this program, and truly see why eating WHOLE foods void of sugar and processing is the ONLY solution to enhance one’s quality of life, please help us get the word out.
Tell others about your results, so they too can benefit from this new knowledge and lifestyle changes!”
