If you’re overweight or obese...<br />If you’re constantly tired, bloated, constipated, achy, sluggish, depressed, or anxious...<br />If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic...<br />If your doctor keeps warning you about the risk of cancer, heart disease, or other lifestyle- reversible calamity...<br />If you’re constantly worried about your blood pressure, weight, insomnia, eating habits... <br /><br />But you still find it next to impossible to stick to a healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle plan... 
<br /><br />Then you might be going about things the wrong way.<br /><br />Let’s face it - despite a flood of information and advice, we’re getting sicker and fatter all the time. That’s because the vast majority of “conventional” advice is outdated, wrong-headed, and just plain ineffective.<br /><br />Within this storm of bad news and bad advice, there’s a growing tribe of outliers who have managed to lose hundreds of pounds, reverse “impossible to cure” diseases, and even - to their own shock and delight - become fit and high-performing athletes.<br /><br />Their stories don’t get a lot of media attention, because they aren’t selling anything. No pills, powders, or potions. No expensive workout gadgets. No late night informercial magic formulas.<br /><br />They simply rediscovered some basic, natural truths about the human animal. What we’re designed to eat. How we’re designed to move. And how we’re meant to think and feel.<br /><br />When we get away from our natural heritage, we suffer. When we return to it, we thrive.<br /><br />Read Sick To Fit to discover how Josh LaJaunie went from a 420-pound food addict to the cover of Runner’s World magazine, as well as live appearances on Good Morning America and The Today Show.<br /><br />Discover the simple secrets for a healthy life that have transformed dozens of members of the Missing Chins Run Club and clients of WellStart Health from sick and sad to fit and fulfilled.<br /><br />In Sick To Fit, you’ll learn:<br />• the one food rule that banishes confusion, eliminates the need to count calories or restrict portion size, and makes you impervious to the marketing and clickbait BS perpetrated by the food industry<br />• how to honor your culture and heritage without suffering from the diseases that are killing your people (coming from the Bayou of South Louisiana, Josh knows a thing or two about being a foodie)<br />• how to use social and family pressure to get stronger and more committed<br />• how to prevent self-sabotage after initial success<br />• how to start exercising safely if you’re overweight (by 20 or 200 pounds)<br />• the four-question FAST Assessment (the “Swiss Army Knife” of sustainable behavior change)<br />• how to master life’s stressors so they don’t turn into binges<br />• how to never “fall off the wagon” again - even if you’ve failed at dozens of diets before<br />• and much more...<br /><br />Written with behavioral health expert Howard Jacobson, PhD, Sick To Fit combines Josh’s journey with cutting edge nutritional, exercise, neurological, and habit science.<br /><br />Sick To Fit is your roadmap to better health and a more joyful life.<br /><br />“Sick To Fit is a captivating, inspiring and practical story of an epic transformation. And don’t be deceived by how entertaining this page-turner of a book is. What you’re about to have fun reading is scientifically proven, and it just might change your life.”<br />Ocean Robbins, Author, 31-Day Food Revolution CEO, Food Revolution Network <br /><br />"A diet book with lots of information leaves you with lots of information. But a book that teaches you how to change your dietary and lifestyle habits – and do it in a way that is compelling, engaging, and eminently practical – a book like that can change your life.<br /><br />"Sick to Fit takes everything that we know about what makes people change in business and life, and applies it to eating and lifestyle habits. I've read a tremendous number of books on diet, fitness, and health - and this one is the best."<br />Peter Bregman, Author, Leading with Emotional Courage, CEO, Bregman Partners

If you’ve ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn’t—what’s scientifically true and what’s false—when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.<br /><br />Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?<br /><br />“I have bad genetics—I’m a ‘hardgainer.’”<br /><br />“You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack.”<br /><br />“When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the ‘fat burning zone.’”<br /><br />“You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat.”<br /><br />“Don’t eat at night if you want to lose weight.”<br /><br />“Steroids make you look great.”<br /><br />“I’m overweight because I have a slow metabolism.”<br /><br />You’ve probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people’s fitness ambitions. There are many, many more.<br /><br />Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled “gurus,” it’s becoming harder and harder to get in shape. <br /><br />Muscle Myths was written to debunk the most commonplace and harmful gimmicks, fads, myths, and misinformation in the health and fitness industry. <br /><br />Here are just some of the things you’ll learn in this book:<br /><br />Why you don’t have to cut carbohydrates (carbs), or fat, or eat weird combinations of food to lose weight.<br /><br />The truth about supplements and why 99% of them are a complete waste of money (and the few that are actually scientifically proven to work).<br /><br />What it actually takes to “tone up”—and it’s not doing “shaping exercises” (these don’t exist) or doing a million reps every workout.<br /><br />Why women shouldn’t be training differently than men if they want the lean, toned, and sexy type of body that they see in magazines, TV shows, and movies.<br /><br />The scientific secrets of getting a six-pack. Forget 6-minute gimmicks, doing endless crunches, and hours of grueling cardio—it’s actually pretty easy when you know what you’re doing.<br /><br />Training and diet methods that will completely shatter any perceived “genetic barriers” that you think are holding you back from building a muscular, lean physique that you love.<br /><br />The proper way to stretch so you don’t sap your strength and risk injury. (Most people do this wrong and suffer the consequences without even realizing it.)<br /><br />And much more.<br /><br />With the information in this book, you can save the money, time, and frustration of buying into misleading diet plans and products that promise unattainable results. You can become your own personal trainer and start getting real results with your diet and exercise.<br /><br />Scroll up and click the “Buy” button now to learn the no-BS truth of how to look good and feel great without having to endure tortuously restrictive diets or long, grueling exercise routines.

A Beginner's Guide to Taking Your Yoga Beyond the Mat shows you how to build your own relationship to yoga--not mediated by anyone else, and directed by your needs alone. Yoga is not a one-size-fits-all practice, and all of us are unique individuals. Why should we do a practice that tries to cater to everyone? <br /><br />While group classes are awesome for many reasons, particularly for building like-minded communities, the heart of our practice comes from within. Taking your practice into your own hands signifies that you’re ready to take responsibility for your own spiritual growth. <br /><br />This book teaches how to build a daily yoga practice that takes us beyond the doldrums of life, elevates our mind and connects us to spirit. This sets the stage for a fundamental shift in our perception and way of life. It may take some time to get there, but every step of the way brings us closer to making the state of yoga our new normal.
