How To Make Your Food Work For You, Not Against You
- This is where I reveal how I hit ‘rock-bottom’ and had no choice but to face my crippling co-dependency on food. So many people suffer from this condition and don’t even know about it. I felt the strong need to put my own ‘problem’ into this book in the hopes of helping many people realize their own co-dependency on unhealthy, high calorie foods. And give them the tools to fix the problem and create a beneficial, life-enhancing relationship with food.
Think you might have a deadly co-dependency on food? What about your kids? If you say ‘maybe’ – then you need to read Chapter One.
The Most Important Chapter in the History of Fitness Books
- Every ‘Best-Seller’ book contains at least 2 or 3 profound elements that really hit home with many people. This chapter is one of those key elements in this book that will move so many people into results-oriented action, naturally spreading the word about realistic fitness and making this book a best seller.
Because when you become a living example of what is possible when you know how to go about it – many other people can’t help but take notice of the changes they are seeing right before their eyes. In other words, ’seeing is believing’, and what people see – they also want to do.
I’ll also show you how the majority of the population is fooling themselves into an early and painful death – and how easy it is to reverse this deadly assumption.
Deadly Myths and Ridiculous Misconceptions That Prevent Your Fitness Success
- Learn the seven most common ‘fitness myths’ that most people (even certified fitness pros) believe to be true. These absurdities could be keeping you from reaching your goals and realizing your natural potential. Even professional trainers are surprised by some of these ‘myth-busters’. I am shocked at how many people actually ask me about these with a straight face – as if they are actually true!
But I do remind myself how these ‘myths’ are a direct reflection of how ‘out of shape’ the majority of the population really is.
Mysterious and Frustrating Fitness & Weight Loss Obstacles
- Have you tried doing everything right? Are you convinced you are doing everything you are supposed to be doing – but still not getting the results you feel you should be getting? You’re not alone. Many people experience this extremely frustrating scenario over and over again. In this chapter I reveal several startling obstacles that could be holding you back – and how to get past them with ease.
A few of these will leave you dumbfounded – as you would never suspect them to effect your body and energy levels in such ways.
BACK COVER PREVIEW
The Dirty Truth About the Dietary Supplement Industry — Antioxidants, Vitamins, Minerals and Other “Supplements”
- This is one of my favorite subjects – and the sleazy companies that sell trashy, rip-off products hate me for exposing the truth. Reading this chapter will make you furious at first – but after learning the truth, you’ll never be duped or scammed again.
You’ll be disgusted (if not extremely pissed off) at how you can be sold a bottle of starch tablets that don’t even have the supposed ‘effective ingredients’ marketed on the front of the label of certain dietary supplements (especially ‘appetite control’, ‘metabolism boosters’ and ’slimming/toning pills’).
is both a compelling and motivating autobiographical account
of one man’s real-life fitness journey, as well as a solid

inspiring others to do the same.” - Tom Venuto, NSCA-CPT, CSCS

The Truth Revealed: Organic Foods and Artificial Sweeteners, Preservatives, Flavors & Colors
- The debate about the benefits of organic foods and beverages as compared to traditionally processed foods gets bigger and bigger every month. But most people are still confused about this area of nutrition and optimal fitness. In this chapter I tell you all you need to know so that you can understand the topic and how to decide what is best for you and your family. My explanation removes all confusion and mixed messages.
In this chapter I also reveal several, eye-opening experiences with artificial sweeteners – that made me and my inner circle of fitness pals – take a very close look a the chemicals that are allowed to go into our foods. You’ll be glad you read this section.
You’ll also learn about an artificial sweetener that was banned by the FDA in 1969 – but is under review again – and may be back on the market and in some of the foods you and your kids eat, within the next few months.
Organic nutrition will be one of the most crucial factors in the health of many people in the next few decades and beyond. Learn why in Chapter Six.
Water, Oil, Fiber and Salt — A Trainer’s Secret Ingredients
Sometimes the ’seemingly’ smallest adjustments can lead to such dramatic and positive changes. I reveal several easy and immediate adjustments you can make in this chapter – that can yield some incrdible results regardless of age and regardless of previous fitness/medical history. Some of the topics I cover are:
- How Your Drinking Water Can Kill You
- Bottled Water – A Better Choice or Just a Hoax?
- Improve Your Fitness and Sex Life with Olive Oil
- Fiber for Fat Loss and Health
- Salt – The Evil Condiment and Its Fitness-Promoting Twin
‘28-Days to Life’ Version of The Blow-Torch “Diet’’
- Don’t let the word “diet” fool you. Far from a short term fad, or an unrealistic regimen of deprivation – the Blow-Torch ‘Diet’ is simply a “way of eating”. As a professional trainer – one of the most frequently asked questions I have received over the years is, “Joey, what should I be eating?” The BT ‘Diet’ is the exact answer to that question. It’s flexible, it’s realistic, it’s adjustable – and it’s effective. Fat loss, healthy muscle gain, or weight maintenance – no matter what your goal is – this ‘way of eating’ will help you get there with ease.
Yeah – it has it’s critics, but I gave it to a Registered Dietitian, associated with one of the most prestigious medical/health institutions in the USA, and had her do a full review of it. You’ll be surprised at her review when you read it. I left it intact and added it as it’s own section in the ‘Diet’ chapter. You will never see this done anywhere else.

all of the time. Far from a `fad’ way of thinking
(which always makes us dietitians happy), the menus
show the reader that it is possible to eat healthy
without spending a ton of time in the kitchen preparing
and cooking meals. I will definitely refer my clients
to this book.’’ - Jillian McMullen, RD, LD/N

The essence of this program revolves around the fact that it can be done at home, at the office or on the road. There is no need to travel to a health club or gym, no need to fight the crowds or guess about what you are supposed to be doing. This is not a program for bodybuilders, power lifters or fitness competitors. Created for beginners and individuals who have suffered chronic fitness failures, this program is designed for real people with real families and careers.
It is specifically suited for people who are more interested in a balanced, enjoyable approach to fitness, people who would rather exercise where they want and when they want. This program is NOT for men looking to gain as much puffy and bulky muscle as possible, and it is NOT for women who want to lose every possible ounce of body fat at the expense of their health and overall wellbeing.
This exercise program is your foundation for long-term sex appeal, total body strength, self-confidence, optimal energy levels, health enhancement, functional flexibility and reduction of aches and pains. Follow my advice and good things will happen.
information for the masses. The menus seem quite diverse, which for
most people is a good thing. If people follow it, they should see
excellent results. I will be giving many of these recommendations a
shot myself. In short, it’s hard to fault a book that presents a diet
full of mostly unrefined foods and healthy fats. The variance with
the occasional bagel and other starchy foods makes the diet that
much more acceptable.
Great job, Joey! I enjoyed the read.” - Jon Benson
