I hate this article for acting like Skittles is an acceptable thing for people to consume.

That woman burns many thousands of calories per day with her workouts and running, and to top that off she has great genetics.

Let’s not pretend like this would be a good diet for anyone who isn’t training as hard as she does.

I get it: people need to feel good about themselves to keep going to reach their goals.

Eating Skittles is not how you should feel good about yourself. Find a better “feel good” self-help/therapy outlet.

Like exercise more. Or read a trashy novel. Or watch the Kardashians… no, never do that. I’m sorry I suggested it. Watch anything else. Even MTV garbage.

So, no you can’t have a gallon of ice cream, a whole large pizza and a couple large bags of skittles per week and be healthy. She can. You can’t. That’s life.

Michael Phelps used to eat 12k calories per day. He also swam for 6-8 hours per day. I workout for 30 minutes. I should eat 1/12 of what he eats … so 1000 calories. Alright, a little more. But not much. He’s also genetically gifted – being the son of Poseidon and all. He’s also won 23 gold medals. I have zero. And no, little league trophies don’t count.

I’m afraid we coddle people too much. Which is why I wasn’t as successful as a personal trainer as I would have liked. I’m too honest. And blunt. I won’t sugar coat anything. That’s not what you need. I give you what you need, not what you want to hear. Like Tony Robbins.

Look. Here’s the thing. I’m not a super freakish athlete. I’m not even genetically gifted. My body is hyper reactive to whatever I put in it. I have to be very diligent for even a small amount of progress. But I like to have fun – so I don’t have a six-pack.

Whatever. I’m at my entering high school weight at 28. I think I’m doing alright.

You don’t need a workout and nutrition plan from a mutant or a model. You need the guidance of someone who understands your pain, your struggles and can empathize with you and your life. That someone might be me. You won’t know until you try.

I’ll be happy to put you on a plan for $27.88/month. It’s a nutrition plan, workout plan and general wellness plan.

I’ll send you articles that I think will lift your spirits and help you reach your goals.

I’ll also do a 15 minute intake Skype call. Then we’ll do one per month.

You’ll have a support group that isn’t just me.

None of us will eat skittles. Because they’re terrible for your health.

I love you and want you to be the best version of yourself. You can do this. And I can help you get there.
