Today I’m going to share some of my secrets for rebuilding natural energy, so you can get yourself off the caffeine and back in control of your life.

Who wants to get off coffee?

As you might already know, I struggled with my own energy about 10 years ago – and that’s because I wasn’t doing these things I’m going to share with you today.

And that’s a common thing for most people in our society, isn’t it? But the truth is most people around you are battling their afternoon slumps and crawling out of bed in the morning, day after day.

In order for you to restore your energy, you’re going to have to unravel all of the habits you’ve formed over the last one or three decades.

Let’s take a look at these areas…

1). Diet

What are the most nutrient dense foods on the planet that also help with reverse aging, weight loss, and disease prevention & reversal?

Yes, I’m talking about a plant-based diet.

Including all of the right foods into your shopping list, recipes & kitchen is going to help you make huge gains with your energy.

  • Lettuce, walnuts, chickpeas – in salads
  • Strawberries, banana, chard – in green smoothies
  • Carrots, cucumbers, kale – in green juice
  • Tomatoes, Pineapple, peppers – in pizza

But not just that, excluding foods that are holding back will need to be removed:

  • Animal foods – animal meat, animal cheese, animal eggs
  • Processed foods – anything food created & sold by a company with exceptions (I’ll talk more about these later)
  • Sugar – fruit is okay in the morning, but added sugar needs to be carefully chosen. Why? Because sugar is next to caffeine in terms of guilty conscience for stealing the energy out of your life. Hey, I was addicted to sweets too, but eating more whole real food helped get rid of my cravings for it

And finally the order in which you feed yourself throughout the day

  • Light foods & liquids in the morning
  • Heaver foods in the afternoon

Does this sound about right? Pretty on track with what you already know?

I’m curious, leave a comment… (because there was a time I didn’t, so you’re probably further ahead of where I was starting out)

Okay after diet comes #2…

2). Movement

I am a fan of exercise, but not for the physical result of it.

Do I have a six pack? Well, not really, but for me that’s not the point.

In terms of energy, physical movement is one of the smartest ways to spend 15-20 minutes at the beginning of your day, before you head off to work.

Why? As my friend Darin reminded me the other day, it’s going to give you energy, so you might as well benefit from that boost – otherwise your initial best energy will be wasted at your job.

(not that you don’t care about your job, but I guess this does make me sound a little selfish!)

Strengthening & stretching workout gives me the highest energy, and I prefer yoga. My hamstrings are still tight after doing it for the past 5 months every day, but again, the daily energy you receive from movement is the benefit you’ll get… rather than focus on the destination of a perfect forward fold, or six pack.

Make sense? Who here works out before work? I want to see you…

3). Organization

If you’re going to completely restore your adrenals, you MUST be prepared and have a plan.

If you don’t have a plan you will fail.

Most important thing you can do for this? Make a simple 3-day meal plan using mostly recipes that you already know and have made before, this way it’s not as overwhelming and you don’t waste too much time in a row. New recipes are okay, but try to limit them for overall efficiency.

Next most important thing… If you work a 9-5, come up with a list of 5 meals you can make in 15-20 minutes that you can have for just lunch, Monday – Friday. This makes life so much easier and more automatic.


4). Mindfulness

I have talked about this one a lot lately…

Women, you might not fully get this…

But men, you must protect your time. If you give it all away you won’t have anything left for yourself.

If you’re really low on energy I know you know what I’m talking about here! I was there too, and you need to get serious because life might blow up for you like it did for me.

For me I got pretty irrational and closed off. I ended things with Sarah and people thought I was nuts. Then I realized something: I hadn’t been paying attention to what I needed, and she didn’t know to ask, so made a huge mistake that almost cost me the love of my life.

This may sound a little gushy, but if you haven’t met her, she’s a great catch!

Back to mindfulness…

Bottom line is you need to guard your time every day. Your spending time doing things that don’t fill you up with energy, they’re actually taking it away from you.


If you kill it in all 4 of these areas I talked about today, you’ll be doing a great job overall in terms of replenishing your energy.

Again, all of these are areas that the vast majority of people aren’t following.

So essentially, you need to be doing the things you know you should be doing, but haven’t created a framework or system to master them yet.

Which is how I can help…

All of this stuff takes work, but there’s an easier way to go about it.

Get my new plan I’m releasing for the first time ever today.

Since coming on to The Seasonal Diet to work full time, I’ve been wanting to help you men out – and that time has come. I asked and you responded:

“I’m exhausted”
“I’m hooked on coffee”
“My adrenals are shot”

… and the best way for you to get out of this rabbit hole you’ve gone down is to get my energy plan ????

It’s a 28-day plan that will get you results within the first week.

The focus is on a plant-based diet, where I provide everything you need to know about what you should & shouldn’t be eating, as well as my own daily energy routine to follow for a simplified way of being consistent with all of the action items.

I spent weeks creating a plan that’s straightforward and easy to implement, but I’m also including support with me for the next month: text & email, if you need it.

So that’s it, if you have any questions about these 4 things leave a comment, or feel free to ask a question about my new plan.

Which of these things are you working on?
