Fact: No one diet fits all.

I’ve found this to be true through all my years of treating patients who want to lose weight. That’s why my A-List Diet is not one-size-fits-all, either.

In fact, I’ve customized the A-List Diet to fit your needs and goals. Here’s how…

Which type of A-List Dieter are you?

Each one of us needs a different ratio and amount of amino acids to get the best results. Your amino acid needs depend on the relationship between your hormones, metabolism, and your diet at any given time in your life.

So, in The A-List Diet, I identify 6 distinct Dieter Types and reveal the optimal amino acid intake for each one. These amino boosting “prescriptions” will transform your body into an efficient, fat-burning machine.

For example, one of the A-List aminos is known to boost muscle-building and protein synthesis in the body. This is important for men and women—however, men need about twice as much of this particular amino acid than women do. That’s why I’ve broken it all down into easy-to-follow recommendations in The A-List Diet, now available in handy paperback.

Knowing your A-List Dieter Type is critical to fast, lasting success with the A-List Diet. To find which of the six types suits you best, take my short quiz.

A-Listers’ Corner

I just had to share this message from Martha P.:

“I have to say that this is much more than I expected. This is a layman’s medical education, which is so important right now! Mainly due to the fact that so many people I know aren’t getting results from their regular doctors. Not to mention the fact that our healthcare system simply doesn’t do much to stopping or slowing diseases before they get to the acute care stage.

This information gives power to the patient to really make changes in their lives. It lets people take their healthcare into their own hands with more specifics about their individual genetics, age, etc. One major plus: people will be far better educated after reading this for when they do have questions for their doctors. Thank you!”

It’s messages like these that reinforce why I do what I do. And as cliché as it sounds, knowledge really is power. As long as that knowledge comes from credible sources.

The science behind The A-List Diet is just that… tried-and-true science. No gimmicks, no point-counting, no overnight quick-fixes — simply sensible information and diet plans.
