Hello, My name is Sean Kelly. 20 years ago, I quickly lost over 40 pounds of fat and became lean, strong and healthier than I had ever been. I was so shocked with the simplicity and ease of my transformation that I began to research and discover exactly why the unusual methods I used worked so well. In my early 20’s in my desperate effort to get into shape I did hours of “cardio” exercise and bodybuilding at my local gym. I was always on some new diet and I often starved myself trying to get lean. Still, I got nowhere. Any small gains I did make seemed impossible to hold onto and were quickly lost. I began to wonder “why on earth is it so impossibly difficult to lose some fat and keep it off?” Upon discovering the principles in this book, my problems quickly ended for good. The underlying truth behind why we are becoming so increasingly fat and unhealthy continues to be hidden from the vast majority of us. The simple, elegant solutions delivering permanent fat loss and health are equally unknown. Yet, these proven methods will work for anyone.
The Eco-Diet isn’t some fad “diet of the week”. It’s a scientifically based and nutritionally sound way of eating based on the same diet our ancestors followed for thousands of years. Let me share with you some of the truth I discovered: the entire food industry, diet and fitness industry, and the medical and pharmaceutical industries REQUIRE YOU TO BE AS FAT AND UNHEALTHY AS POSSIBLE. Otherwise, they will simply have fewer “customers” and will make less money. Unfortunately, these immensely powerful industries highly influence our government. This is why the odds have been stacked against you right from the start. This is exactly why it seems so inescapably difficult to get lean, strong and healthy. You are literally immersed in the problem. Worse, almost all of the so-called solutions literally make things worse. Further, you have been conditioned to think that failure is your fault when in fact you have been set up to fail.
“Today’s modern fitness and gym culture is shortchanging women more than any other group. There is a wholesale tendency in gyms to push women toward exercise classes, hours of cardio work on treadmills, small light weights and fancy looking machines. All of these activities have one thing in common; they result in very little if any positive physical change. Also, women are often uninformed or misinformed regarding the proven physiological facts. Women often pay for expensive, long term, but ineffective personal training. Any changes that do occur are often excruciatingly slow or involve mountains of time and effort.”
Sean Kelly is an NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) and CPT (Certified Personal Trainer). He has achieved over a dozen national and world power lifting records.
Sean’s main areas of interest include advanced strength training and anthropology related to diet. Specifically, his two main areas of practical study have been adapting advanced strength methodologies to the goals of the general public and successfully following an evolutionary diet in contemporary society.
Sean puts the ideas in this book into practice every day at Fortis Fitness gym, www.fortisfitness.ca. Here, people are introduced to these uniquely effective philosophies regarding diet, exercise and building muscle. The unification of these proven ideas is detailed in this book.
For over 20 years, Sean has been researching and discovering the endemic causes of our society’s obesity and diet related ill-health epidemics. He has practiced and applied these unconventional but highly effective solutions with great success.
Sean’s wealth of fitness and nutrition knowledge is remarkably vast and it shows in his book “Why We Are Fat.” Sean is all about educating people. The information he gives is above all else about strengthening the mind, and not just the body. It is a must read for anyone that is at least curious about how to quit dieting on and off, and how to improve their nutritional LIFESTYLE for the better, permanently.
Sean’s modified strength training program is the most effective weight training regime I have ever used and I have used many others prior to discovering it. It is also unquestionably the most enjoyable to practice. Once I started using it I have never used any other training program since, and with good reason. The constantly evolving nature of the program makes training dynamic and never boring. And most importantly it produces great results. There are no special tricks. What separates the ideas in this program from others is in-depth science and research.
After weight training for nine years, I made the biggest increases in strength and health I’ve ever had using the principles in this book. I’m not an athlete or bodybuilder. I am a regular guy who wanted to look and feel better, to be stronger and healthier. The knowledge I gained from Sean and the principles of the Eco-Diet and training program have contributed to me attaining that goal more than anything else.
I’m usually not one to say something like this but this book changed my life. I’ve been going to the gym regularly for over 15 years now with little or no results. Since using Sean’s methods I’ve actually started LOVING going to the gym, for the first time ever its fun and I see results week to week. I look better than I did when I was 20 and I’m stronger than I have ever been. Following his simple guidelines for eating dropped pounds off my waist within a week! No joke.
Seans Kelly’s methods are a common sense revolution…A gathering of the best fitness and nutrition knowledge, shining forth through the mists of gimmick and delude…Not unlike a crucible…If you should have the means employ your magical powers of possession and raise…
