Anyone who tells you can’t eat caramel pancakes while on vacation is wrong.

I used to think like this when I was in my low-carb phase. Avoid carbs. Avoid sugar. Avoid processed food. While it seems like good advice, it misses the most important part of nutrition.

Your results.

Do you have a low body fat percentage and good blood work? Then you’re healthy.

Do you have a belly and high blood sugar, cholesterol, or liver enzyme levels? Then you’re not.

It’s this simple.

Stop the demonization of foods.

Start tracking important metrics and adjust your diet, exercise, and lifestyle accordingly!

This is what matters most.

Not blanket recommendations that don’t address the root cause of your problems.

Before you reply to this email angrily telling me about me how terrible it is to eat sugar and processed foods…

I’m not saying that it’s healthy.

I’m saying you can get away with it if you’re healthy enough.

And some people may need to back off a lot to improve their metabolic health before they can “afford” to eat these things.

But I am saying that good nutrition looks different for everyone.

Ultimately, your body fat and blood panel tell you how you’re doing.

Being data-driven with your approach to health is the way forward.

So, don’t tell me about all the healthy food you’re eating and how you avoid eating sugar.

Show me your DEXA scan and blood panel results!

Then we’ll know exactly how healthy you are.


Here is your Unstoppable After 40 Friday Digest:


1. Ask Ted: What are the top 3 science-backed strategies to reverse the aging process?

Longevity is a trending topic.

Everyone wants to know how to either 1) stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible or 2) extend their lifespan beyond the average American man’s life expectancy of 76.33 years.

And I think this is great.

Our mindset is shifting away from looking good for summer to how to stay healthy for life!

But the issue is there’s a ton of misinformation about this topic.

For example, let’s say you had to make a choice between focusing on nutrition for longevity or exercise?

Which one would you choose?

The answer is more complicated than you might think.

And that’s why I recorded an entire podcast on the top 3 science-backed strategies to reverse the aging process.

The top 3 aren’t what you think (nutrition isn’t one of them).

2. Full-Body Workouts Vs Splits: Which is better for fat loss?

Are you still doing chest on Mondays, back on Tuesdays, etc.?

Then you might want to change to a full-body workout.

A randomized controlled trial published this month compared: • Full-Body workouts 5 days per week

• Body part split 5 days per week

In other words, in the full-body routine you’d work every muscle group in every workout. In the body part split, you’d only work one muscle group per workout.

Both groups performed 75 sets/week with an 8-12 repetition maximum.

The only difference was how often a muscle group was trained.

The results?

The full-body routine led to almost twice as much fat being lost versus the body part split.

Time to rethink your routine if you’re still following Arnold’s workout from the 1980s!


3. The best way to unlock your shoulder mobility.

Do you sit at a desk most of the day?

And do you have trouble lifting your arms over your head?

Then try this shoulder mobility exercise.

It can help restore normal range of motion to and prevent mobility loss.

How many sets?

Try doing one set before your upper body workouts. Or do one set every 1-2 hours when you’re seated at your desk.

How many reps? I recommend 10-20 reps with a 1-second pause in the top position.

Legendary Life Coaching Client Highlight: 

Meet Todd.

He’s a senior engineer who works 55-hour weekly shifts to provide the best life for his family.

Although Todd has been exercising and lifting weights since he was 15, his lifestyle changed dramatically when he became an engineer and got a desk job. His weight had crept up from 190lbs to 285lbs.

Sounds familiar?

After almost 2 decades of trial and errors, Todd decided that he was ready for that change. He wanted to be in great shape for his 50th birthday.

Todd and I worked together for six months and in that time his transformation was remarkable.

  • He lost 71lbs in 6 months.
  • His sleep went from 4 hours ➡️ 8 hours/night.
  • He 🔼 productivity and 🔼money.

But the best part is he is feeling younger and ready to enjoy the best decades of his life.
