This is not another self-help, weight loss, quick fix, or "my way is the best way" book. Instead, I will take you on a journey through everything I have learned over the past 26 years—my mistakes, successes, failures and struggles—all which have lead me to discover the true meaning of health… and MY SECRET to EVERLASTING RESULTS has NOTHING to do with FOOD or EXERCISE! If there was a program, diet, strategy or “once-and-for-all solution,” I tried it. If it was written, I read it. If it was a certification, I got it. If it was an infomercial, I probably bought it! I have shed blood, sweat, tears, and money for the possibility of a lean, healthy body. As a result, I was miserable, despite my successes as a fitness professional and athlete. My projection of perfection isolated me and left me with little influence. Others viewed me as someone who could not understand their struggles with weight loss, and my biggest fear came true. I couldn’t help anyone—because I became unapproachable. Little did they know, my dirty little secret. I went from racing 70.3 Ironman Triathlons (1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run) to a couch potato. My job suffered. My marriage suffered. My relationships suffered. My faith was shaken. I felt like I had no control over anything, including my thoughts—but especially my health. I was on the brink of losing it all, until one test result led me down a path of physical, mental, and spiritual healing, and a transformation that I could have never imagined. If you are lost, frustrated, sick, tired, and ready to throw in the towel— if you find yourself willing to “settle” for the way your health is now—this book is for you. The road to success is paved with mistakes. You no longer have to guess which diet or exercise trend is the right one. I give you the tools needed to decipher between the fads and the truth. After reading this book, you will be able to apply the knowledge shared and successfully make educated decisions about your health and the direction that is best for you. This book will help: • You can live a life full of health, peace, joy, and purpose. • Make the choice to learn a new way to optimal health. • Believe anything is still possible. • Seek ultimate balance, health and wellness in your life. • Break free from the cycle of guilt, shame, doubt, and defeat. • Understand why health is important, Biblically. • Know God’s purpose for you and your health. • Find your Eternal “Why” and have Everlasting Results. "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8
