She Lost 19lbs and Nearly 7 inches from her waist in just 7 weeks!

We're exactly 1 week out from the start of the Look Great Naked Challenge and I'm getting tons of emails asking me what kind of results people can expect from their time on the program.

Obviously, I could answer with my personal trainer head on but most people would think I was just exaggerating, so instead I thought I'd let you hear from one of my current challenge participants.

Read the email I received from Ann today after completing just 7
of the Look Great Naked Challenge (she's got another 5 weeks
to go).

This is complete, unedited and 100% written by Ann.....

"Since hitting 40 I've been really active - running regularly - and even doing a marathon when I was 44 - this meant that I could eat
what I liked and kept my weight down. Having a really sweet tooth,
every time I had a coffee (about 8 cups a day), I also had biscuits
or chocolate to go with them!

It has only been over the last 18 months that my weight has started
to creep on - no matter how much exercise I did I could no longer
control my weight. Any attempts to try and lose weight lasted two
or three days before I would reward myself for doing an extra long
run or whatever.

I decided I needed to really look at my eating habits - I knew that
committing to exercise wouldn't be a problem - I also knew
committing to a healthy eating plan would be the hard bit for me.
This programme appealed to me because it didn't pull any punches -
you know it's going to be tough - it isn't like other diets where
you are allowed a piece or chocolate, the odd glass or wine as a
treat if you've been good - it's about having to mentally get
yourself in the right space to be able to accept the challenge and
be determined to go for it. The first week is tough but after you
see the results it becomes a lot easier. The big plus is that I'm
never hungry - I seem to be eating more than ever before!

When I started the programme I was 147 lbs after seven weeks I've
lost 19 lbs and have dropped two dress sizes - my waist is now
17cms smaller
- I've never felt so fit and toned - I'm the weight
now that I was when I was 18 and have only got a few more pounds to
lose to reach my goal.

I would recommend this programme to anyone who wants to see results fast - having a clear structure of what to do and when really

Best wishes"

Ann Komzolik

Not bad huh?

I mean, 17cm is 6.7 inches and she's only just over half way
through the program.

There's a lot more to results come in the next few weeks and she's bound to drop another clothing size (maybe more) in that time.

It's like I've said all along.

This program truly is the real deal.

It gets results fast.

And I'm about to prove it all over again with the next Look Great Naked Challenge that's starting on friday 4th April.

That's next friday!

From that point, every day for 90 days my challenge participants will be guided, supported and have their butts kicked if necessary : ) toward the results
they've been promising themselves for ages.

And, of course, every person who joins the program is automatically in with a chance to win a luxury holiday to Thailand if they turn out to be the most improved person by day 90.

In fact, if you're reading this and you're interested in joining the challenge yourself, you're just 1 step away from the results that Ann and many others
have experienced.

Taking that step is simple.

Go to and sign up for the challenge. It's only £1 a day and is your surest bet for walking
onto the beach looking and feeling great this summer.

And it'll be a lot of fun too!

You know you want this... right? : )

See you there!

Look Great Naked Challenge Starting April 4th

Just a quick update about the Look Great NakedChallenge that's starting next Friday

I'm receiving a stack of emails at the moment from people who're really inquisitive about the challenge, the format the support, the cost and, well, every conceivable question you could ask about the program : )

Now, obviously, it's important that these questions are answered,but I'm going to ask you be patient with me a I walk you through a program overview over the next few days rather than bombard you with a stack of material all at once.

Sound fair enough to you?


Now, to the first most popular question I'm getting asked at the moment:

What's the format of the challenge?

Well, it's a pretty simple format actually. I designed it that way so that it would be easy to follow. After all, if it were complicated you'd soon get confused, disheartened and fall off the wagon wouldn't you?

So, it's simple.

Basically, it works this way:

Every single day for 90 days you'll receive an email from me telling what's required of you for that day in terms of diet and exercise and the lifestyle changes you'll need to make in order to get the results you're hoping for.

In that email will be links to exercise videos that I've created specially for this program and detailing all of the finer points of the exercises I'm asking you to perform.

In addition to the follow-along videos, you'll receive printable documents detailing those exact same workouts but in written and pictorial form so that you can learn and use the routines more effectively.

In addition, I'll be sending you dietary advice (initially based onthe Elimination diet though later including several plateau-bustingtechniques that I use to help my 1:1 clients get results faster),nutritional 'tweaks' and motivational strategies to keep you focused and clear about what you're doing and why.

I'll also be sending you audio downloads to help you with otherlifestyle factors such as recovery, sleep and stress so that you'llbe able to get the most from your training and nutrition.

As you can see, you'll effectively be receiving personal training across the 90 days as I share with you the exact same principles and wokouts that I use with my very own clients but you'll have the benefit of being able to do them from your home anywhere in the world and at any time of day.

Best of all world's huh? : )

Stay tuned for tomorrow's message when I'll explain a little more about the actual workouts.

I think you'll be VERY surprised at what I've got in store for you: )

Speak soon!

P.S - Can't you just picture yourself lying there soaking up that wonderful Thai sunshine already?

I can! :)

How To Lose Tons Of Fat While Watching The TV

Hi There!

I've had nearly 500 new people join the elimination diet newsletter this week, taking my total readership to well over 24,000 people, indicating that not only is the diet itself growing in popularity but that people are (finally) starting to come out of their winter mode and starting to think about getting into shape for spring and summer.

About time too!

But whilst it's great that so many of you are looking to take action at the moment, I also wanted to remind you that getting great results is not just about diet.

Sure, that's an important part and certainly this diet is extremely effective at getting great results but, as you know, there's far more to dramatically changing your body in a short period of time.

For a start there's the dreaded E-word.


It's an important part of the equation and, whilst I'd love to tell you otherwise, you simply cannot get the results you're looking for without including a little of it every day.

It doesn't have to be a lot, it doesn't have to take all the time in the world, it just requires that you do it consistently and with the right intensity to get results.

And you don't need a lot of equipment, you don't need to join a gym and you don't even need to hire an expensive trainer like me.

You just have to get off your butt and do something.

That's how simple it is!

In fact, you don't even need to leave your living room or miss a single minute of TV.

Try this workout.

I call it the get your lazy butt off the couch workout : )

1. Pick 3 or 4 exercises, say, a pushup, a squat, and abdominal curl and a lunge (though it could be any others too)

2. Every time an advertisement comes on TV, get off of your couch, do 10 of each and then sit back down.

Workout over!

Don't tell me you can't do that?!

Think about it, an advertisement comes on every 15-20 mins (well, here in the UK anyway) so you'll have done 30-40 reps over the course of an hour.

That's probably a lot more than many of my readers are doing at the moment, doesn't cost a penny and takes no time out of your day whatsoever. I mean heck, you can even still watch your favorite TV show.

If you're a little fitter and you're worried that this won't provide enough of a challenge then try this instead:

1. Pick the same 3-4 exercises.

2. Whenever an advertisement comes on, get your butt off the couch, perform 10 of one, move to the next and the next, and the next and continue the cicuit until the adverts are finished (on average 3 mins).

I guaranteed you that you'll get an amazing workout if you do this just once. Do it throughout the evening and you'll be stunned at how much work you've done.

So, there you go, the ultimate lazy person's guide to working out.

Now what's your excuse? : )

To your Success!


P.S - Nearly 200 people have joined the elimination diet challenge at are you? It's FREE!

Free Exercise Videos For You

I've pre-empted your excuse "I don't know how to do those exercises!" by having my team create a bunch of instructional videos for you : )

Learn To Pushup Correctly

Learn To Squat Correctly HERE

Learn To Do An Abdominal Curl HERE

Learn To Do A Lunge HERE

We'll be adding new exercises every week from now on so all you have to do is follow along and you're sure to be in great shape in no time!

And don't forget to write in to tell me how you're getting on. You could even video yourself doing the program and upload it to youtube yourself : )


Got Your Elimination Diet Cookbook Yet?

I've had quite a few emails about the cookbook telling me how much simpler it's been having recipes to choose from rather than coming up with food ideas of your own.

I agree.

In fact, I'm now kicking myself for not creating this 3 years ago!

Remember though, you don't HAVE to have the cookbook. There are literally thousands of food choices that are compatible with the diet but if you want a little help to keep boredom at bay, you'll certainly find it a great resource.

There are currently over 115 recipes in e-book format and another 10 being added each and every month for a year so there'll be 240 or so by the time I'm done and each of these updates will be sent to your inbox free every month.

So if you want to grab a copy then pop on over to and grab it now so that you can make the most out of the diet in the weeks ahead.

10 Simple Truths About Looking And Feeling Great

During my career I have helped literally thousands of people to lose weight and keep it off. Often, against all the odds and in spite of politically correct nutritional dictates that would counter my recommendations, my clients have successfully reached their weight goals and lost bodyfat by following some simple yet powerful principles.

Foremost among these has been this one indisputable fact; We are all biochemically different beings, therefore there is no ONE dietary style that will work for everyone.

Therefore EVERY food that we eat will create a different reaction in EVERY one of us. For some people fruit lifts them up and makes them feel great, for others they feel dull and sluggish. Some are allergic to nuts whilst others aren’t.

No one food, no one diet can possibly meet the needs of all of us. In fact, it’s ridiculous to try!

Therefore, this article does not attempt to tell you what you should eat. Instead we’ll be focusing on 10 simple rules that apply across the board to all of us and, when followed, will virtually guarantee your success whether you are on a high protein, low fat or detox diet.

Without further ado;

Dax’s Rule Number 1:

If you own it, you’ll eat it.

Forget about putting all of the ‘bad’ food in the house out of sight; get it out of mind too by binning the lot! I know this may seem a little extreme but the truth is that anything that you have in your fridge or food cupboard WILL eventually find its way into your mouth.

If it’s tinned, processed, has ‘e’ numbers or unpronounceable words on it, it goes into the bin. Full stop, no ifs or buts!

Any and all processed foods fit this category. The simple rule is that anything that will last for more than 4 days without going bad should be avoided as ‘non-foods’ that will harm your health.

Dax’s Rule Number 2:

If it has wheat or gluten in it then it doesn’t go into you.

The plain and simple fact is that most of us have a hard time digesting wheat and gluten. The knock-on effect of this poor digestion is that we often inhibit the uptake of other important nutrients thus leaving us poorly nourished and often allergic or intolerant too.

The difficult thing about ridding wheat and gluten from your diet is that it is used in everything from bread, pasta, biscuits, cakes, breakfast cereals, sauces, the list goes on… Just make sure that you read the labels on the foods you are buying.

Dax’s Rule Number 3:

At least one third of your food should be uncooked.

Many, in fact nearly all, of the vital micronutrients found in our foods are destroyed by excessive exposure to heat during our cooking processes. This renders these foods calorie dense yet nutrient deficient which can lead to food cravings, eating binges and excessive weight gain along with numerous conditions associated with malnutrition.

Ensure that fresh, raw fruit and vegetables form a large part of your diet. This can be made easier by juicing.

Dax’s Rule Number 4:

Eat More Vegetables.

Unlike many fruits that are known to cause allergic responses or contribute to weight gain through their insulin-provoking effects, virtually ALL vegetables are good for you. (If you know that you are allergic to a certain vegetable OR that excessive intestinal gas is created by ingestion then obviously avoid them!)

Vegetables contain phytochemicals, which are powerful natural agents that promote health. They will also help to alkalinize your system, as most of us are far too acidic. Most people benefit more from increased vegetables than from extra vitamins. You will normally need a large amount of vegetables to optimize your body's pH acid/alkaline balance.

The recommendation is that you should try to consume 1lb of vegetables for every 50lbs of body weight. This will probably sound excessive in comparison to your current eating habits, but give it a try, you can always tailor it up or down!

Ideally raw, juiced or lightly steamed is best.

Dax’s Rule Number 5:

Limit or Stop ALL Sugar Intake

Gram per gram, sugar is probably one of the most dangerous substances on earth. Seriously! Sugar has been linked directly to many forms of cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, eczema, immune system suppression, alcoholism, premature ageing, multiple sclerosis, obesity, osteoporosis, parkinsons disease…the list goes on!

Sugar in all of its forms creates havoc with your sensitivity to insulin and has a knock on effect throughout the entire endocrine (hormonal) system.

Avoid all White sugar, brown sugar, dextrose, maltose, fructose, glucose or in fact ANY ingredients that end in ‘ose’. They are all sugar.

You will also need to be careful with high glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates like:

White Rice
Flour Products

Which are quickly converted into sugar in your body. Instead, opt for fibrous, starchy vegetables as your primary carbohydrate sources.
Note: If you DO consume high GI foodstuffs, ensure that you ALWAYS keep the portion sizes small and that they are ALWAYS accompanied by fat and protein. This will reduce the insulin provoking effects.

Dax’s Rule Number 6:

Consume only Organic and Free-range produce and meat products

From seed to storage our fruits and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides more than 10 times rendering them highly toxic anti-nutrients that have been identified as PROVEN carcinogenic agents of the highest order.

Think about it; insects are the hardiest species on the planet, capable of withstanding extremes of environment, toxicity and bacteria yet our chemicals are still strong enough to kill them off. Those chemicals are within our foods and eventually within us. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out the threat that this represents to us, the very END of the food chain.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS all non-organic agricultural produce, opting instead for organic and bio-dynamic food sources. These foods not only lack the toxic chemicals, they are also far higher in nutrients and taste fantastic too!

Similarly, avoid all non-organic meat, dairy and egg products as these foodstuffs are loaded with hormones and pro-hormones that effect the way our own bodies produce hormones. This results in endocrine imbalances, adrenal fatigue and myriad medical problems including MS, Parkinsons disease, ME, Diabetes and Cancer to name a few.

Eat only from free-range, organic and bio-dynamic meat and dairy which yield a far better nutrient profile yet minimise the hormonal imbalances caused by their non-organic counterparts.

Often, people complain about the prohibitive cost of eating organic and free-range produce. They’re right, it IS a more expensive way of eating… at first!

Yet, after just a short time of eating the nutrient-dense foodstuffs from the organic and free-range group, you’ll find that your food cravings reduce as your body starts to receive what it needs.

In fact, in just a short time, eating organic proves to be no more expensive than non-organic… you eat LESS food because it’s better quality!

And besides…

Even if it is a bit more expensive to eat organic, at least you won’t be consuming all of those chemicals that are PROVEN to make you ill!

Dax’s Rule Number 7:

Eat again no sooner than two hours and no longer than four hours

This is CRITICAL in supplying a steady flow of nutrients to your body in order maintain the balance of your internal environment. Eating regularly reduces the glucose and insulin fluctuations that lead to overeating and eventual fat gain. In addition, a steady supply of the right nutrients for your unique biochemistry will ensure that you not only maintain optimal weight but also optimal wellness and health too.

Dax’s Rule Number 8:

Drink plenty of clean, filtered water

With over 80% of the human body being made of water, it should come as no surprise to find that we need to maintain a good level of hydration in order to maintain optimal health.

Yet, if you closely examine the fluid intake of most individuals, you’ll find that most of us go through life severely dehydrated. We’ll drink tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and alcohol, but rarely will we take on clean, purified water!

The trouble is, all of these other drinks do not help with the hydration process. In fact, they serve as diuretics, causes us to process our precious internal water supplies even further.

When we become even 2-3% dehydrated we can suffer decreased health and performance. Stay dehydrated for long periods of time and you invite all types of medical problems including:

- Low back pain
- Fibromyalgia
- Ulcers
- Chronic fatigue
- Asthma
- Diabetes
- Obesity

And other conditions too numerous to mention.

The key to staying healthy, fit and well is to ensure that adequate water enters our bodies on a regular basis. A good guide for how much you should drink is 1 litre for every 50lbs of bodyweight, so if you weigh 140lbs we’re talking 3litres. If you’re in hot climates or exercise a lot you’ll need to drink more.

It’s not just about quantity though. Another thing to take into account is the quality of the water you drink. Due to high levels of chemical pollutants within our water supply, you should ALWAYS filter your water prior to drinking it. A simple Brita type of filter does the job quite well, though if you want to go a step further you can filter straight off the tap.

If you’re drinking water on the go the try to buy your water in glass bottles. There is increasing evidence that plastic bottles begin to ‘leak’ their chemicals into their water after a while, especially if it’s been exposed to heat.

Dax’s Rule Number 9: Avoid or minimise alcohol

There’s no getting away from it alcohol is a toxin! Sure, it may provide a short-term lift or a high that we grow accustomed to but nevertheless, it damages your health just the same.

As a powerful sugar, alcohol encourages rapid fat gain through excessive insulin reactions as well as more directly as an appetite stimulant.

Why else do you think we’re offered our drinks when we first enter a restaurant? Because by the time we come to order we’ll be starving and order more!

If you must drink, do so occasionally, with moderation and NEVER on an empty stomach. ALWAYS consume fats and protein with alcohol and minimise carbohydrates.

Dax’s Rule Number 10: Get out and about!

We all know that we need to get off of our fat in order to get our fat off but how many of us realise that it’s VITAL to get ourselves outdoors too?

Even if we’re eating healthily, drinking fresh water and being active by regularly exercising at the gym we still need sunlight in order to stay healthy.

In fact, lack of full spectrum light had been implicated as a major contributing factor in many chronic problems such as:

- Chronic fatigue
- Depression
- Tooth decay
- Hair loss
- Stroke
- Alcoholism

As the major provider of vitamin D, natural light is Essential to many of our biochemical reactions. Without it, many of those reactions will simply not take place, or else their effects will be greatly reduced.

The answer?

Get outdoors at least 30-40 minutes a day. Take your lunch outside, read a book or go for a walk, just get out!

So there you have it. 10 simple steps that you can take today to make your diet more effective and your life more healthy.

Now, I’m not saying they’re all easy. As creatures of habit, it’ll take many of you every last ounce of discipline to establish these new rules into your life, but make no mistake, when you do you’ll be astounded at the results!
