What is included with the Science Lab membership?

  • Unlimited interactive webinars


What if I don’t work out with high intensity, or with weights, or ______is Eat to Perform still for me?

The concept of Total Daily Energy Expenditure applies to everyone, especially for people that are active.  The basic idea of Metabolic Flexibility (what we teach on Eat to Perform) is that you maintain and potentially build muscle tissue by feeding around your workouts.  This plan is not ideal for sedentary people.  If you are a runner, that is fine, but remember the point of what we teach is to keep what you have and get more muscle.  That is favorable for running, but involves some resistance or strength training as well.


What if I eat Paleo only? What if I do the Zone diet? What if I don’t eat dairy?  What if I do ____?

Whatever diet you prefer we believe in eating adequate amounts for your athletic activities.  What do we mean by that?  Macronutrients – calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrate.  We also believe that how you eat should be somewhat flexible.  Could you do this 100% anything? You probably could, but we don’t believe that is the best path forward mentally.  The idea that any one thing you do can harm you in a big way is too limiting mentally.  Most of us eat a diet of mostly whole foods with eating for joy moments.  If you want to call that Paleo, Zone, or whatever, that’s cool by us as long as you are eating appropriate amounts to fuel your workouts.


Do you create individualized meal plans for members?

We provide our members with meal templates based on common Calorie .  There is no one-size-fits-all approach to fitness and nutrition.  From different food preferences, to a variety of athletic intensity, to different goals, it is not possible to offer a realistic meal plan for each person.  However, we offer various tools to calculate and track your nutritional intake and workout schedule, and then we will review your plan and offer our feedback based on your goals and other factors.   Your food, your lifestyle, your workout schedule.  We also offer an optional Meal Planning Guide to help you structure your own meal plans.


If I have a medical condition known as ______, is Eat to Perform right for me?

Eat To Perform does not offer medical advice of any sort.  Consult with a physician before beginning any diet or exercise program.

Is Eat to Perform for me if I am already “lean”?

That answer quite simply is a resounding yes.  It’s almost as if diet authors have forgotten that lean people need nutrition advice.  We actually have specific groups just for lean people who want to continue to gain lean body mass and improve performance!


Is Eat to Perform for me if I have fat to lose?

Yes, however, Eat to Perform is not a diet site.  We focus on eating to perform, and as a result, you should end up with gaining muscle and ultimately losing fat.  If you have a lot of fat to lose we are a great solution for sustainable weight loss, but you need to understand this is not a quick fat loss program.  For most people those quick-loss programs end up in an endless stream of rebounds and confusion.  We teach you the “WHY’s” of the foods you eat and help you find what works best for you.


Are there additional costs to Eat to Perform besides the membership?

Memberships include access to the Science Lab and any current materials.  You are under no obligation to purchase additional products or services, although we do offer them.


How long after I sign up does it take to get materials?

You should see a “Thank You” page after your purchase with a link to create a Science Lab account.   Registration is normally approved within an hour.   Once you’ve successfully logged in, you’ll be able to download your materials.  If you have any trouble creating or accessing your account, please contact customer support.


Are physical copies of the eBooks available?

At this point, physical copies of eBooks are offered on a very limited basis exclusively to members.
