Almost 70% of people are overweight or obese. Since people have finally woken up to the idea that smoking… you know, breathing chemical-laden fire directly into the lungs… is harmful, eating the collection of garbage masquerading as food these days is the number one killer. And before it kills you, it makes you miserable. Knee problems, back problems, breathing problems, heart problems, diabetes, infertility, low libido, metabolic and hormonal problems, mental illness, kidney stones, thyroid issues, poor sleep… we could fill pages. If you’re a member of the 70% club, and odds dictate that it’s more likely than not, you probably want to lose weight. It’s also likely, though, that you don’t know where to begin because you’ve been told 50 different methods by 50 different people, 35 of whom are ALSO overweight. They’ve told you to go low carb, full keto, vegan, low protein, high protein… they’ve told you to do obscene amounts of cardio or no cardio at all in favor of lifting weights. They’ve told you to take certain drugs. They’ve told you to eat 6 small meals a day or they’ve told you to fast intermittently and eat only once a day. And on and on. And everyone of these well-meaning individuals misses the boat, even if the methods they swear by cause you to temporarily lose weight. Why? Because all of this advice is centered around reducing the number on the scale without addressing the primary pursuit: metabolic health. That must be the sole reason for losing weight because if it isn’t; if you go with one of the aforementioned trendy weight loss methods, losing weight could come with a host of unhealthy conditions like lowered basal metabolic rates, thyroid conditions, or hormonal imbalances. By prioritizing your HEALTH, you’ll inherently be optimally shaped. Losing weight will be an accidental byproduct of taking the necessary steps to get, and stay, healthy. So what IS the healthy way?
At The Fittest, we believe it starts with a nutrient-dense, nose-to-tail diet that prioritizes meat and organs, primarily from ruminant animals. When we prioritize these foods, 2 very important things happen, that both lead to satiety and prevent us from overeating.

The cool thing about starting with the nose-to-tail diet, above and beyond the natural, quick weight loss is that it makes all of the other Lifestyle Levers EEAASIER to pull, to put you in a state of being that allows you to become the most DOMINANT version of yourself.
If you do these things, it is inevitable that you will become the fully optimized warrior you were meant to be. You will claim your birthright as the KING or QUEEN of your own life. The weight loss will certainly happen, but you’ll realize that simply losing weight was not the pursuit you were after. It was just a catalyst to a LIFE WORTH LIVING.
