That’s me in the picture…the guy with the six pack and killer bod.
Maybe I should display a bit of humility, but I’m damn proud of how I look, because I didn’t always look this good.
At this point, I should be starting my sales pitch, but I’ll be honest with you, I don’t have time to write a huge, sprawling sales letter. Like so many other pioneers in this industry, selling is not my business: doing is. Working with clients, discovering and applying cutting edge systems doesn’t leave time for a lot of smoke-blowing. I bet you’re busy too, so I won’t waste your time.
Be honest: do you live like a monk?
I did. I watched everything I put in my mouth and my eating schedule displayed Swiss-precision timing. I would never eat the foods I loved — like the cherry turnover above — and I never dared miss a feeding, fearing the rumble, irritability and nausea of an empty stomach. In short…
On top of that, I trained for hours a day and I never looked anything like I do now.
These days, I only get to the gym three times a week if I’m lucky. I’m building a business and working with athletes across the globe. I don’t have time to spare.
But I found a way to look awesome anyway.
My background as a physicist keeps me hungry for knowledge. I’m always reading a medical journal to stay on top of my game and while researching a random vein of interest…
I stumbled upon an integral component of the way to stay lean and enhance every aspect of training — strength, size, aesthetics — with almost no effort.
I don’t eat on a schedule anymore. I make gains in the gym with little effort, even training a total of 3 hours a week; I eat cherry turnovers, hamburgers and fries, ice cream and cheesecake and guess what?
After spending a few years perfecting the eating strategy, I finally put it all into a single book with everything you need to live like you want, enjoy life and look like a fitness model all year, while still achieving new goals in the gym.
And that’s it. That’s all I have to tell you. Everything you could want is in the book. It’s one of the most heavily researched and referenced diet books in the world, bar none. My only goal for this book is to help people learn my supposed secret:
You can read on if you’d like and see testimonials from world-record holding powerlifters, internationally ranked female athletes, the editor of Men’s Fitness Magazine and even the average person who just wanted to look awesome naked. But if you’re ready to make your friends envious, to make life simple and reveal the chiseled comic-book-character physique that’s hiding under a layer of fat, then why wait?
This may sound like a crazy claim and it's the same one you've read a hundred times followed by a little * and the words Results Not Typical.
But with Carb Back-Loading, these results are typical. Right now, thousands of people are learning how easy it is to look the way they want every day of their lives — no self-deprivation required.
Why? Because Carb Back-Loading was built on an intricate understanding of how every human body burns and stores fat and builds muscle.
So I'd love to say I designed it to be easy, but frankly, after reading volumes of metabolic research, I came to realize...
Achieving your desired level of leanness is truly "diet-by-numbers".
Believe it or not, health experts, medical doctors and even the goverment encourages you to do one thing every day that's destroying your results.
Learn what this critical mistake is and how science has shown to use it to your advantage instead.
Maybe you go to the gym and maybe you don't. Either way, there's one type of exercise that everyone should be doing that most people don't.
Learn what the right type of exercise and the right intensity is to literally change the molecular function of your cells so you burn fat and keep or even build muscle.
We've been misled in recent years as to what we should eat when. The wrong choice—like what you read in magazines— will make you fatter.
Learn about this secret and often feared food that accelerates fat loss.
I'm not even sure I fully understand how to do Carb Back-Loading properly and I still lost 20 lbs and 5 inches off my waist and I can see my abs for the first time in my life.–Clint Smith
I'm extremely cautious when it comes to any diet tweaking that can hurt my strength. Within seven weeks of starting Carb Back-Loading, my body fat dropped by 7%, and I was the strongest I've ever been.—Brian Carroll
I never imagined being able to eat high glycemic foods such as white bread or rice and even ice cream, especially in the evening. Now they are helping me make the changes that I want and I still look and feel great. In fact, I feel even better than on past diets that were meant to help me build muscle.
With Carb Back-Loading, my energy has improved, my cravings are minimal and my strength and recovery are beyond what I thought they could be.—Alex Navarro
Before: 270 lbs
End Lean-Down: 215 lbs
Midpoint of Bulking: 225 lbs
After: 240 lbs
I decided to put Carb Back-Loading to the full test. My first goal was to see my abs. I started with a lean-down phase. In just under 12 weeks, I lost 55 lbs and got stronger.
Phase two was to do a lean bulk. In 12 weeks I successfully went from a body weight of 225lb to 240lb, took my squat from 400lb to 500lb, my deadlift from 500lb to 600lb, and not gained one ounce of body fat during the process. The log book, measurements, and mirror don't lie and I thank Carb Back-Loading for it.
My life is easier from not having to stare at the clock every 3 hours to obsess about food. When the time comes to eat, I am MORE than satisfied and never go to bed hungry. Convenience is just a side effect of Carb Back-Loading. My mind is clear throughout the day with a consistent energy, my workouts have never been more intense, and I have never had this amount of convenience in my life combined with using food to enhance my goals in the gym to a degree I've never experienced. It really is a win-win. Carb Back-Loading has essentially allowed me to hack my body to find out its true potential.
I will eat this way for the rest of my life.—Tanner Fox
Carb Back-loading is easily my favorite nutrition strategy that I've ever experimented with. Kiefer has made the dream a reality: eat anything you want and lose fat while building muscle.
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't tried it myself.
There's a reason we called it Nutrition's Holy Grail when we wrote about it at the magazine: It works as advertised!—Sean Hyson
As with so many of my female friends and family members, I thought I was fated to live with large-ish hips and thighs. The female curse, I thought, blaming it my gender and my genes. Even after running two full marathons and more than a few half-marathons and 10K's, fueling myself with a traditional runner's diet, my legs barely changed.
Once I started Carb Back-Loading and hit the weights, though, my entire body transformed and the most notable difference has been in my "problem areas" - my hips, thighs, and glutes.
I never in my life thought my legs could look like this. I'm 41 years old and when I look at before and after shots, it actually looks like I'm reversing time. I feel like I'm reversing time, too, with the energy and strength Carb Back-Loading give me. Turns out that a pear shape that gets worse with age is not a given after all.—Caroline Gick
Eat Like a Pig. Get Shredded. The Carb Back-Loading diet could provide the Holy Grail of packing on mass without adding fat.– Muscle & Fitness Magazine
Carb Back-Loading takes advantage of the most advanced and intricate features of human metabolism. To succeed, you must eat the foods you've been told to avoid, like pizza, donuts, pastries, ice cream…
Carb Back-Loading requires dessert!
I love Back-Loading way more than any other nutritional protocol I've tried in the past. I don't feel as restricted and can still have some of the things I enjoy…—Julia Ladewski
But Carb Back-Loading isn't all about "junk" food. You can eat plenty of the incredible meals you love even if they're not loaded with sugar and creamy-whipped goodness.
Now, with a world of dinner choices available to you, you don't have to worry about your diet when going out with friends, snacking with friends at the game, or eating out at a nice restaurant.
…at the same time, I feel that I'm making better choices, even during my back-loading time frame when I could technically eat what I want.—Julia Ladewski
I developed Carb Back-Loading after nearly two decades of reading through science and medical journals, absorbing everything from the thermodynamics of the body to biomolecular processes that make metabolism possible. I'm addicted to details and puzzles grab me like a Siren's song, but obsessing over details comes with the territory: I'm a physicist.
More importantly, I question everything.
Once I became familiar with the scientific literature from the last 100 years, I realized that some of our most beloved nutritional dogma is false. Once I released these beliefs, the doorway to powerful and effective nutritional strategies flung wide open.
I always believed in the words carved above the Gymnasium in ancient Greece: Mens Sana In Corpore Sano. They mean A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.
To that end, I train with the same intensity I attack intellectual pursuits — but I don't have all day to spend on eating and training.
I learned enough about the body to utilize several processes which the "experts" overlook — "tricks" that get 99% of the results while expending the minimum possible effort. Put together correctly, these principles allow you to gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously.
I used to eat carbs at the completely wrong time of day — until I did a little research.
It turns out that for easy, sustainable fat loss, we should be manipulating our insulin levels in a completely different manner than we're being told. No more brown rice and whole-wheat pasta — but bring on the pizza and donuts.
One of the most powerful regulators of tissue growth is called the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) — an absolutely key component to losing fat while keeping and even gaining muscle.
Carb Back-Loading keeps the mTOR pathway open, stimulated and raging to trigger new muscular growth.
I can't remember being more excited than when I learned about glucose transporters and their ability to move within a cell, called translocation.
GLUT are specialized protein structures and they transport glucose — blood sugar — into cells for energy or for storage as fat.
A comprehensive understanding of how and why tGLUT move allowed me to put together a program that prevents fat cells from storing carbs as fat, but still accelerates muscle growth.
Time of day influences everything from peak alertness to insulin sensitivity.
But time-of-day can be used to make everything — food, training, cardio — more anabolic with greater fat burning.
You may already know that resistance training triggers more anabolic hormones and positive regulators of muscle growth than any other activity.
What you will learn from Carb Back-Loading is how to choose your food and training time to amplify those signals and experiences new levels of strength, size, and fat loss.
Modulated Tissue Response (MTR) is the ability to tell some types of tissue in the body to grow while signalling other tissue to shrink and die.
Carb Back-Loading's MTR innovation combines the above effects into a single, simple, ridiculously powerful protocol.
I never imagined being this lean, this muscular and this strong until I discovered the principles of MTR.
Carb Back-Loading is so simple and so effective it seems like magic, but it's the result of pure science.–Jason DeMayo
Most great nutrition research comes with no indication of how to use it.
And most programs telling you what to do come with hardly any basis in science.
With Carb Back-Loading, you finally have a scientific system that comes completely assembled. You'll learn HOW it works, but more importantly, you'll get a full-blown handbook of body recomposition that spells out how you can immediately put it to use.
So, you could experiment to find the optimal way the research fits together through trial and error…or you can let me do all the work for you.
With almost 20 years studying, developing and using advanced dieting strategies with clients, I assemble the complex research data from the last 100 years of research into a simple, powerful, easy to use protocol.
This 300+ page ebook, backed by over 50 pages of references from widely-distributed scientific journals, is nothing less than a full-blown MANUAL for total body recomposition.
Inside you'll find:
My clients pay over 1000 dollars for me to create a diet plan for their unique schedule of eating, training and work — not to mention all the normal stuff.
Now you will get access to these custom meal plans, templates you can use to apply Carb Back-Loading to your own schedule, challenges, and goals — for a tiny fraction of the price.
