eating for energyJust a few weeks ago, I was putting together a new lesson for our super nutrition academy on the topic of metabolism when I got an email that nearly knocked me from my chair.

We’ll get to that in a second but there’s something really powerful that you need to understand about losing weight.

Overeating 2000 calories per day is easy. Go to McDonald’s and you’re already there.

But BURNING 2000 calories per day through exercise is almost impossible – at least on a consistent basis.

For example, it would require a 150-lb person to run 20 miles PER DAY every single day to burn an extra 2000 calories per day.

Good luck!

That’s why you can NEVER out train a bad diet.

But dieting can be tough as well. Just the name “diet” implies some kind of short term fling. Definitely not a sustainable to lose weight in healthy manner.

The email below will show you what Laura did to lose 18 pounds, drop 6%, and boost her energy and health in a matter of a few short weeks.

Do what she did and you can enjoy similar results.

Now, here’s that email I mentioned above – it’s inspiring to say the least.

“Dear Yuri, I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate Eating For Energy. As a fitness professional, I was always looking for the next big thing. It was only after reading and implementing the strategies in your program that I realized the error in my ways!

Rather than trying to find out ways to work out harder or squeeze in enough calories for dessert, I discovered that returning to my roots…to the way that our ancestors ate long ago….is really the only option if you are serious about your health.

With all of the diet crazes and commercialization of food, it is easy to get caught up in all of the hype. Even with my background, I can speak from experience that I fell prey to many of these so-called “health” foods. You see, for years, I was in great shape. Even after having two children, I was basically able to eat whatever I liked.

However, I worked out feverishly for hours a day. Slaving away at the gym so that I could enjoy pizza at night without feeling guilty. It was only after my 30th birthday that things started to change.

I felt tired all the time. I was moody and irritable. I snapped at my children. I didn’t feel like myself. My workouts became less intense and less frequent. Finally, all of my bad eating habits had caught up with me.

Within a matter of a year, I had gained nearly 20 pounds. I looked and felt horrible. I started to explore options for weight loss through food. I can’t tell you how many diets I started and failed. And the more I failed, the more driven I became that the next diet was the real solution to my problem. Weight watchers, calorie counting, low carb….none of them gave me any long-term results. Finally, I decided to start eliminating meat from my diet.

After much research, I learned the ramifications of eating meat. Morally and physically, I was opposed to what meat did to me. After 6 months of taking meat out of my diet, I took the plunge and went vegan.

And although I was feeling better – more energy, happier, lighter in my step – I still had not lost the weight. Frustrated but determined that I had made the right decision, I kept on reading and researching. That’s where I found you. While browsing Facebook one day, I saw a link to your site. I had read about going raw but friends and family had discouraged it because they thought it was too hard (the same friends and family who discouraged me from going vegan!).

After reading your philosophy and the success stories on your site, I felt a deep connection and downloaded the “Eating For Energy” book. I literally devoured the book – reading it every chance that I had a free moment. Sometimes I would go back and read a section three times. It all became so clear to me.

Something I was making so complex, so difficult, couldn’t have been easier. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Don’t eat if you aren’t hungry. Start your day off with a glass of warm lemon water. Simple mantras I could easily incorporate into my life. I proclaimed it the “Summer of Raw” and strong in my belief that this was the answer, I took my “before” pictures. They were awful for me to look at. It made me realize that I was getting as bad as some of my clients who came to me for advice and training. The very next day, I started following your meal plan.

It was easy to follow and the recipes didn’t take long to prepare at all. As a busy mom, I could grab them on the go and prepare them ahead of time. No crazy dehydrators. No juicers. Just simple instructions for recipes that all of my family enjoyed. It didn’t take long before I started to see a change. The pounds fell off with very little effort on my part. I still ate out once a week but found that I didn’t crave the pasta dishes that I once looked forward to.

Instead, I looked for restaurants that catered towards unique salads or customizable dishes. I still worked out everyday but only spent a maximum of an hour exercising. Now, I am proud to say that I have lost 18 pounds. I have lost 6% body fat. I have lost 4 inches from my waist and two inches from my hips. I am almost back down to the weight I was two years ago.

Best of all, I look as healthy as I feel. My skin is clear. My eyes are bright. I am happy to look in the mirror again. My “summer of raw” has turned my life around and I plan to continue down the raw path (and encourage those around me to as well!) for a very long time. Thank you Yuri for your time, dedication, and effort on this subject.

I know I am not alone when I say that you have helped me to save myself.”
