Former Fat Guy is Quickly Becoming Sex Symbol

June 26th, 2008

How a Former Fat Guy is Quickly Becoming Sex Symbol Through Fitness

- by Joey Atlas
If you’ve been following me for at least the last few months – you already know about Colin’s fat loss success story. As I mentioned previously – he’s the guy featured on the back cover of my book.

He likes to keep me posted on his progress – and he sent me this great email a few days ago. Read it and see what inspiration you can draw from it to fuel your motivation to change your life for the better.

The Sexy Stud Says
‘He ain’t done yet…

…What ever that means to you – because it’s not the same for everyone…


I was at work today working away and a lady come up to me and said “you know I was going to buy a big bag of chips, but I seen you over there and know all the weight you had lost and I put the chips back cause I didn’t really need them” I told her “good for you”.

She told me she had lost a bit of weight but put some of it back on, now she has a tough time trying to get back into the routine of sticking to her diet. I told her the next time she got the urge for a snack grab a fruit to eat like an apple, orange, grapes, banana or a pear. If it’s nice out you may just go for a little walk. Sometimes it’s hard work but worth it in the end.

I guess this is a part of the fitness ripple effect. I’m still smiling and proud that I can be such an influence on people I don’t even know.

PS – Before that I had another lady today come up to me, I didn’t know she was and asked me where did I go to (meaning the weight loss), she told me I looked good and I’m doing a great job. I told her I had 158 lbs gone and her jaw dropped; I said it was over 2.5 years losing it slowly so it didn’t make me look sick like some people do when they lose a lot of weight.

Then first thing this morning when the store opened a young lady who works at Tim Horton’s was in picking up groceries and I said “Good Morning” to her, she looked around and seen me there working away and she said “you know the other day I seen you at the mall and you look good”

I told her thank you! hehehehe

Keeping Fit!

Snoop Dogg, Batman and Joey Atlas

May 29th, 2008

- by Joey Atlas

What do Snoop Dogg, Batman and Joey Atlas have in common?

No – It’s not a # 1 Selling Rap Album (that was Snoop Dogg, I think)

No – It’s not the ability to beat the crap out of 7 bad guys in 3 minutes (that was Batman, but I could do it if I had to)

No – It’s not a # 1 Best Selling Fitness, Nutrition and Life Enhancement Book (that’s gonna be me next week, on June 5th)

Here is what the 3 of us do have in common. We each own a Chrysler 300 – but each is very different from the others – especially mine…

Here is Snoop Doggs’ – as you can see it’s been ‘pimped out’:

snoop doggs chrysler 300

Below is Batman’s (well, really Adam West) – pretty mild – no flames coming out the back like the Batmobile:

And below is mine – keep in mind – it’s a 1962 Chrysler 300, about 43 years older than the ones you see above. And – it needs a makeover of it’s own – which is happening while we speak…

Atlas Chrysler 300

Below is what it will look like after the ‘makeover’ – just a bit cooler though – and it will be all black…

1962 chrysler 300

Why a 1962 Chrysler 300?, you ask…

Well, 2 reasons:

1 – We needed an official promotional vehicle for my book launch and ongoing book promotion tour – and long term promotion events. And I found this one a few weeks ago at the exact right moment – the experience was ‘magnetic’.

2 – I am a classic/muscle car fanatic and doing a restoration project like this has been a dream of mine since childhood.

So you must be wondering about the book launch next week. Right now we are hard at work preparing for the launch – lots of small details to get in order when working with Amazon – to get everything set up properly.

The official launch date is June 5th – Thursday of next week (this will be different – of course, in other parts of the world.)

So stay tuned – and in the meantime – leave me your comments below – I’d love to hear from you.

Your trainer,

Healthy Breakfast? Eat What Your Trainer Eats

April 4th, 2008

- by Joey Atlas, M.S. – Exercise Physiology


“What should I eat for a healthy breakfast?”

This is one of the most commonly asked questions of fitness pros and personal trainers, by people interested in getting into shape (or back into shape, again).

Quite often people will take this one step further and ask, “Joey, what do you eat for breakfast?” While I have a handful of answers for this – I’ll share with you what I ate for breakfast today. Note – this breakfast is fine for men and women.

First key number – total calories = 340

Second key number – protein = 14 grams

Third key number – FIBER = 8 grams

Where did this protein, fiber and 340 calories come from?

1 – Sturm’s Organic Oatmeal – Maple Spice, Naturally Flavored
— available at Walmart (

[WARNING - even though I post a product's website - I am NOT recommending all of that company's products - for example - the company above makes some evil and unhealthy products - stuff that I have banned in my house - and that I strongly advise my clients not to consume - stay tuned for more on that...]

2 – One teaspoon of Pavich Organic Raisins (

3 – Two tablespoons of Nature’s Bounty, Ground Organic Flax Seeds (
— available at Walgreenes, Target and a bunch of other places

4 – My morning coffee (I make this right in my office):

‘Joey’s Cocoa-Chino’

- 4oz Organic Skim Milk
- 1 teaspoon Unsweetened Organic Cocoa (
- 1 pinch of KAL Organic Stevia Powder
- 1 teaspoon Organic Sugar
- 2 shots organic espresso

Now some of the ‘Muscle Men’ (and women) reading this are saying, “Joey, you’re crazy – you can’t build any muscle – there’s not enough protein in that meal.” To that I just say, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ – so here:

This is what happens when you eat ‘like a bird’.

I’ll get into this ‘high protein psychology’ in another article – not enough room here…

But I can tell you this – I know the difference because I used to be one of these guys, about 18 tears ago – the Mega-Protein, Lift Lots of Weights, Muscle Builder type guys…

Stupid me – I wasted lots of time, energy and money (my ‘muscle-man breakfast’ used to be in the 2100 calorie range, maybe higher – crazy, but true).

Anyway, the breakfast above – gives me 340 WELL BALANCED calories to nourish, fuel and energize me right into the early afternoon without a single hunger pain.

My body doesn’t go into this fabricated ’starvation mode’ (what a joke). My body doesn’t start cannibalizing itself by burning it’s own muscles for energy, [see photo above].

This breakfast is easy, fast and perfectly balanced for the fitness lifestyle. Again, this is not what I eat every day – it just happened to be my choice of breakfast today.

What did you eat today? Have a question about my breakfast? (post it below via ‘Comments’)
