I was in my 30s and living in New York City.
I had no boxing career, because I’d retired.
I had no apartment, because the economy crashed and I couldn’t afford my rent.
I had no family nearby (my family was on the other side of the country), so I had no one to help me.
... and I had just lost all my personal training clients, because everyone was scared of the Recession.
All this meant I couldn’t afford to stay in New York City.
So I packed up my stuff and my dog (at the time), Champ, and drove across the country to my home state of Idaho, where I started personal training again.
Then I got into elite road cycling, where I often rode my road bike 300 miles a week while keeping up with the fastest men.
And even though I was exercising like crazy, I was starting to get FAT. I also had really bad IBS. My stomach hurt. Cellulite was popping up on my hips and thighs.
There’s a stupid myth out there...that if you just exercise hard enough, you shouldn’t get fat.
…Well, I found out that is COMPLETE bull crap.
If you want to lose stubborn fat, out-training a bad diet is NOT POSSIBLE.
I know, because I tried.
I gave it everything I had.
I gave it my BEST shot.
It didn’t work (even for me, an elite-level athlete)…
Because I played by the rules and I did everything mainstream weight loss advice says to do...
