Don’t Be Like This Guy

I have another little story for ya and there will be no tears with this one I promise. There is of course a point in me telling these stories. Firstly because you remember a story better than anything else and secondly I’m trying to save you from wasting your VALUABLE time and effort just like this guy was…


A man was out walking and came across a lumberjack who was working his ass off.

The lumberjack was trying to cut down a tree with a saw and was swearing and grunting as he struggled in vain.

“What’s the problem?” The man asked.

“My saw’s blunt and won’t cut the tree properly.” The lumberjack responded.

“Why don’t you just sharpen it?”

“Because then I would have to stop sawing.” Said the lumberjack

“But if you sharpened your saw, you could cut more efficiently and effectively than before.”

“But I don’t have time to stop!” The lumberjack shouted, getting more frustrated.

The man shook his head and kept on walking, leaving the lumberjack to his pointless frustration.

Why am I telling you this?

This story is relevant to so many of us and our UNACHIEVED health & fitness goals. Working our asses off but not really getting anywhere or being effective aAnd instead of taking the time to and LEARNING HOW to become more effective we just keep struggling with our “blunt saw”.

Trying to get “fit n healthy and all that” with an inefficient method and always feeling like your doing it the HARD way. Please don’t do this any more, it breaks my heart to see people wasting their efforts.

As I said before I don’t want you to work any harder than you have to.

YOU need to take some time to sharpen your saw and become efficient

So you “cut” through your goals as it were 😉

So YOU can do it the EASY way – yes there is any easy way, I’m trying to teach it to you

So in case you aint got round to it yet I wanted to remind you about ONE great tool to sharpen your saw our new radio show “You, Me & The GP

You can listen in your car, when you walk the dogs or when you exercise

Dr Daniels and I have done another question and answer session

(the show reached number 1 on itunes in the end, VERY big deal)













In this episode we answer questions on the topic of…

  • Ankle injuries and rehab
  • We talk about bilirubin levels and Gilbert’s syndrome

(I didn’t know what they were either before doing the show).

  • Can you eat too much spicy food?
  • Is cardio is more effective when you haven’t eaten?
  • What are the effects of overtraining to your health & fat loss?
  • Is steady state cardio better than high intensity interval training for fat loss


Take care,

  1. Brief as possible! I am a male age 79, been a builder all my life,retired at 73. Still quite active, been Type 2 diabetic, 7 years now, diet controlled by ‘low-carb’ 60-70 grams daily. No drugs. BP 136/82, slightly overweight since retiring 92 kg. at 5’11. Chol.5.4.
    I do enjoy exercising, walking, gardening etc., also enjoy weights in a moderate way. When using the 5.5kg weights I seem to fairly easily able to do it. But later the tiredness seem to come over me, which seems to annoy me. What can you recommend at my age, I seem to have the strength, not the stamina. Am I expecting to much at my age. Anyway thanks for your time. Stan

    1. Hi Stan sounds like your doing well pal.

      Send me a two day sample of your food diary to help me help you.

      I will also ask the Dr on the next radio show.
