This is a re-post from August 2013 – the start of the 60 Day. Converting the 40 Day Challenges into a longer challenge was an idea I had had a few years ago, but wasn’t sure what or how to do it. Now I am pleased to say we have a book coming, and an app, and the brand is solid. I thought I would post this, as it is no longer exactly as you see, but I love how close it is. Notice in the first paragraph, I reference the retreat. We did one with a retreat to the mountains, and it was awesome! Join us Monday January 26th for the launch, then Wednesday nights after that for the next 60 Days.
Thanks and enjoy the reading!
This is what is in store for you! Yep, it is your life, and your time, and your reasons are so varied. But I am going to be telling you more about some of our past stories in the next coming weeks as we prepare for the 60 Day Turnaround. And during this, some of you are going to come with me to the High Hampton Inn in Cashiers October 4th – 7th. This will take your breath away, it will amaze you, and make you smile big smiles all at once.
So what is the 60 Day Turnaround? It is a combination of efforts to turn your life around from any negative direction, for any level of individual. You could be at 90% great food in your diet, your postural carry, your exercise and your peace… and this will still help you to pick out a massively important piece, and drive it forward in the right direction.
For those of you who are 40%, 30% or better yet, for so many of you who have no idea where you are with this… we will drive you to better understanding, and better commitment the truth and the life that will set you free. I know that is a little poetic and dramatic, but it is the truth. SO many of you have these addictions that you think nothing of. And you don’t need to turn away forever in all instances, but you need to kill it once.
For example. SUGAR. You might profess that you have control of your sugar intake, but then if i ask you to go 24 hours with NONE. No fruit, no grains, no root vegetables, better yet… simply fast on water for 24. 90% of you will fail, if not 99%. Lets take the step to figure out how you could do that.
There are a lot of good leaders in this new health world; sadly, they also base a lot of what they teach on rhetoric and popularity. For example, there was a time, about ten years ago, when cortisol problems were everyone’s issue. Well, there has been a whole lot of treatment of cortisol issues, with medication, diet, herbal remedies, etc. And the problems that were supposed to go away, are still there. So when a group gets stuck heavily on cortisol, I cringe. Yeah, we’ll teach you about it, but you need to know it is a symptom, and a response to other things. Not a cause.
I have had countless patients of the 10,000+ we have taken care of in the last decade, go through protocols from groups like Progressive Medical, only to end up in the exact same boat. The 60 day turnaround will address the true problems, and it won’t be scared to stress your body in a positive way, VS run in fear of some excessive cortisol production (so often I hear about people being advised not to “stress” the body). You just need to get your body working right, so you can HANDLE the cortisol production.
I like being right, its called being a man. Stubborn, and always want to be right. Well, if there is one place I have been fortunate enough to be right about very often in the last five years. It is nutrition. How do I know? Results. Weight loss when it was thought to be “hormonally” impossible. Pregnancy when five different docs said never. Thyroid function when 20 years of synthroid was said that it would turn into a lifetime of it. The stories go on and on. (PS – I was wrong about nutrition for a bunch of years prior – :) )
So what will we do in the 60 Day Turnaround?
- Suero Cleanse to get you rolling. 3 Days, all fluid, no solid.
- The Healing Diet will be discussed and taught. We will teach you paleo, as well, but give you the pitfalls.
- Posture with a focus on your spine. You need to get your spine right if you want the rest of you to work, period.
- LEPTIN 101 – know your master hormone and the fat burning cycle.
- Exercise – if you are, then great, if you aren’t, that will change. With four associated CrossFit gyms, will give you some time at one.
- Detoxification – the cleanse starts the process, but how do you keep it going? This includes a ton of info on Gut Health, Leaky Gut Syndrome, and healing the GI tract.
- Goal Setting and Peace Building – the last five years have been stressful on many people. We are going to dig in to setting goals, and reaching them without stress. Effort does not have equate to stress!
- Shopping tours at Trader Joes, and the organic section of Kroger.
- Dunk Truck Body Fat assessment pre and post.
- Pre and Post pictures, and weigh ins pre and post and weekly along the way
So it is all coming fast, mid September we will kick off. To do it well, you really need to be budgeting between $119 – $229 per person. To do it at all, you might be able to fall in at $49 if you are a member at one of the gyms, or HealthSprout.
The best news. If you ask me what night of the week, i’ll tell you it is all sorts of nights. We will be holding a TON of the workshops, at different times, and different places, all over these associated locations. CrossFit Silos, Towne Lake and Bridgemill. The Garage, HealthSprout, and Better Health By Design (Cumming). Approximately 8 workshops, taught 20 different times.
Hope you are excited! I am! It is your time, the 60 Day Turnaround is coming!
Be Well and Be Blessed! - Dr. E
