Doug McGuff  — Hello everyone. It’s Doug McGuff with ultimate exercise body by science and Before I get started once again please remember to hit subscribe and hit like. What I wanted to talk about this evening, Friday evening, place is closed, just finish the workout.

Recently I was in Barnes & Noble’s just doing a little book browsing which I love to do and I gradually started to make the realization that I really just don’t like publishing house published books anymore.

Even with authors that I really want to read which I bought a couple of titles and I’ve been reading I’m finding them unbearable because the editing that goes on to make it more popular and more digestible ends up kind of tarting it up and watering it down and uses anecdotes and stories to drag the whole thing out rather than getting right to the point and it makes reading the book more laborious than it should be.

And I then made the realization that all of the favorite books that I’ve ever encountered my life seemed to have been self-published books.

Whether it’s Arthur Jones Nautilus Bulletins to Ken Hutchins Super-Slow Technical Manual, every book that I’ve really gotten a lot of bang for the buck out of has been self-published.

And I think it’s just great to hear the author’s voice without it being tarted-up or watered down by a recent college graduate that’s just going through the editorial process making it sound like every other book that’s out there.

With that in mind I wanted to let you know I have just come across another title and another book that is going to be on my very top of self-published books that I really really love.

And this one is by a gentleman that some of you may know because it’s his name is Dr. Ted Naiman.

The P:E DietHe has recently self-published a book that’s available online called The P:E Diet.

And I’m here to tell you this thing is unmitigated pure information explained in a way that even the layperson can understand it but someone that is deeply entrenched in the science of physiology will find equally as entertaining.

And the neatest thing about the book in my opinion is that it makes really really good use of infographics.

For someone that’s a visual learner, that – combined with the written word –is just so synergistic and so powerful I don’t think there’s anyone that will not come to understand how to eat in a way that’s going to optimize their body composition.

So I’ll try to give you some of the highlights in a nutshell.

One of the things that he does that is really cool is — I often talk about diet being a straight line between you and the sun

Well he actually breaks it down to a point where you will know where nutrients come from.

He talks about taking CO2 and water –hydrogen out of the atmosphere, oxygen out of the atmosphere and those carbons and hydrogen’s get converted by plants that have to make their own energy.

Their autotrophs get converted into carbohydrate and fats but the plants are rooted in the ground and what’s coming out of the ground is nitrogen and minerals.

And those nitrogen and minerals are what constitute the backbones of proteins.

And he shows how plants make their own food out of sunlight, energy in the nitrogen and the minerals that are in the soil.

They make their own food.

Then he shows how herbivores come along and eat those and how that energy gets concentrated up food chain.

And the higher you go the more protein gets concentrated in carbon it’s diluted.

And what you end up with is he shows on a vertical axis the protein content and on a horizontal axis the energy content.

So if you’re eating something very close to nature –animal food that’s high on the food chain –what you’re going to have is a needle that is pointing high on the protein and low on the energy.

And if you’re eating totally refined junk, from one of the center aisles of the grocery store, what you’re going to find is that needle moves down to where the energy content on the x-axis is very high the protein content is very low.

This becomes important because he demonstrates that our sense of satiety is predicated upon reaching a certain level of protein and mineral intake.

And we will eat whatever amount of calories it takes in the food step we’re eating to reach that satiety point where we have enough protein and minerals.

So if you’re eating an energy dense food that is very low in nutrient density you’re going to eat a lot and you’re going to over feed.

He also shows that how protein carbohydrate and fat work together inside the body to signal which we’re going to preferentially metabolize and oxidize.

He shows how certain combinations of food will orient you towards fat storage versus towards lean tissue building.

It’s just unbelievable how he puts it all together in a way that makes intuitive sense for everyone

So I’m not going to try to explain why I cannot do it nearly as good as he can and if you want to see a perimeter from the book on youtube I’m going to hold up an address for you shortly because he gives a great youtube lecture using a lot of infographics that are in the book.

The book is online it’s 20 bucks.

It’s worth 10 times every penny.

If anyone has the time and the money to get it I highly highly recommend it.

So I’m going to show this to everyone and I want you to get a chance to get this.

So that’s Dr. Ted Naiman and it’s at and below is the complete youtube address.


I will try to link this.

If I am successful it’ll be great.

But the youtube address for the hour-long lecture that he gives that’s basically the introduction to this book.

There are not many books that come along that I feel are potentially life-changing for people but I’m here to tell you I think this is one of them and I highly recommend that everyone pick up a copy.

Anyone that runs a shop like I do, a facility, one of the hardest things is that your clients come to you over and over wanting advice for fat loss and in general what we all end up telling is look what we do here is strength and we don’t really do diet but strength sets the stage for a proper diet and working really well.

I usually will hand off the diet burden on to some sort of resource that I can hand them and I’ve had several in the past.

I’ve had Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint. Robb Wolf Paleo Diet, The ONE diet by Simon Shawcross and now I have The P:E Diet by Dr. Ted Naiman.

I’m going to start recommending this to clients.

I recommend that facility owners do the same.

So let’s call it a wrap for ultimate exercise body by science

I want to remind everyone you want to talk more about these things you can reach me at

Schedule a phone consultation till next time we’ll see you later
