By the end of the day, you have to unbutton your pants because you feel so bloated.
You look down and it looks like your 6-months pregnant.
Your To Do list is MILES long and you barely have the brain power to just get by, let alone so anything else by the end of the day.
The brain fog is getting worse. You're started to worry that maybe you have early-onset Alzheimers... even though it's most likely impossible at your age.
You're eating well, or so you think, but weekends are your weakness.
You have yet to find a diet/lifestyle that doesn't feel like "work"
This is why I hate the scale... it is LITERALLY the most rudimentary measurement that you can use to measure how successful your lifestyle changes are.
Because a pound is a pound is a pound.
Ever heard the phrase, "Muscle weights more than fat?" WRONG! A pound of feathers = a pound of bowling balls, they just take up more room.
That's exactly what's going on with fat versus muscle... fat is fluffy and expands your inches. Muscle is dense and that's why you still weight the same but you're looking more slim, your clothing is fitting better, you're feeling better overall.
Measuring your success on the scale is not only worthless... it's SO DEFEATING!
How many times have you been killing it with your diet. Exercising 3+ times per week. You're starting to see the tone. Oh my goodness, you might even have abs under there! Then you step on the scale.... IMMEDIATE DEFEAT.
You step off that scale, all of that confidence and motivation gone in an instant. You leave the bathroom, go directly to the pantry, and eat all the salt and vinegar kettle chips you can [at least that's what I would do].
I have seen my patients step on the scale. See they've gained 5lbs. After everything they've done.
Then we do a body composition...BOOM! That weight gain is pure muscle! That's what we want!
The more lean muscle mass on your frame, the better you look and the LONGER you live! For reals! You live longer and with a better quality of life.
Want to know what helps you gain muscle fast? Eating muscle! Eating protein.
You have to feed the muscle the building blocks it needs to grow and start burning that fat while you sleep.
I've created 2 weeks of amazing recipes that are a minimum of 80g of protein and 40-50g NET CARBS, but still at least 1200cal per day.

"Really enjoying some of the new recipes this week, always amazing how quickly I feel slimmer without the gluten in my daily diet."
- Todd Baril, Toronto
"Well I just weighed in and have lost 5 lbs! I'll be honest, I had hoped for a few more to go but as I think about it, losing the weight isn't really the best part of this. It's the new habits I'm forming and sticking to them. My greatest achievement over these past two weeks has been following my eating plan and sticking with it where in the past I would have totally fallen off the wagon. This group and challenge came at exactly the right time for me so thank you are Dr Maxim and everyone else!! Stay tuned for more good things to come"
- Valerie H., Burlington
"So I'm very proud of myself today. I had a really bad day and normally I would have come home and done nothing but snack and watch tv. It was on my goal to go to bootcamp today so I stuck to it. And for my snack I chocolate and nuts as it was a nice "feels like cheating but isn't cheating" treat. Loving this program!"
