NorCal Margarita

When summer time comes it can be hard to stick to your diet.  You want to hang out and drink all of the refreshing summer drinks.  But some drinks like frozen margaritas can add hundreds of calories to your daily total!

The NorCal margarita originally popularized by Robb Wolf is one of the best cocktails I have found to solve this.  It is light, refreshing, and is delicious for everyone, even those who aren’t dieting!

Intermittent Fasting Book

I wrote a book! Kinda! It’s pretty short so it can more accurately be called a guide.  But it is an intermittent fasting book, including information that I have never published on this site.  It is not out yet, but will be out pretty soon, and I wanted to give all of my readers access to the first few chapters absolutely free.  These free chapters include my quick start guide that describes an intermittent fasting protocol that has never been shared before, and an introduction that provides information about intermittent fasting.  All you need to do is fill out this form and I’ll have it quickly on it’s way to you!
