When asked to write a book about how I do what I do, I refused. There are already over 1000 weight loss and diet books in publication, and 9 out of 10 of them offer programs that fail within the first week. Instead, I chose to create the most extensive lifestyle program ever. With my team, we developed the tools and solutions to make getting in shape easy, and we’ll be there with you every step of the way. That’s how we create success.
Whether you want to lose 30 pounds or 300 pounds, there are only three things that we focus on here at Reshape the Nation — Eating, Moving, and Living… together.
Carb Cycle LifestyleTM
We’ve all heard that the key to success in life is balance. The key to success in nutrition is no different. Reshape the Nation is built on a powerful method called “Carb Cycling.” Essentially, Carb Cycling is a continuous seesaw of high and low carbohydrate/calorie days. By offsetting the High Days with Low Days, the overall net result is a wonderfully balanced nutrition program. Plus, using this pattern we can actually reap the metabolic boosting benefits of High Days and fat burning benefits of Low Days for a nutrition structure that is much more effective than any static or stable nutrition program! In addition, the high and low calorie nature of cycling keeps the metabolism constantly “guessing,” so it can never adapt and plateau our weight-loss.
Carb balancing has actually been used in the fitness industry for years as the most effective way to change body composition. At Reshape the Nation, we just put a real-life twist on it. The results speak for themselves — incredible permanent weight loss without crashing the metabolism.
Most programs make the mistake of restricting foods. One of the most common reasons we fail on a weight loss program is because we feel deprived. We can only hold out for so long before we give in to fall back on our old habits and comfort foods. Along with this falling back come feelings of guilt, failure, and hopelessness.
Let’s get real: We have emotional and psychological need for comfort foods, and it’s important that they play a major role in our new lifestyle. What makes Reshape the Nation different is that we’ve created something we call Lifestyle LayersTM — structured “Reward Days” that you select throughout the week to indulge in comfort foods. We have lifestyle layers ranging from once a week, up to every other day. With this flexibility, you can never fail.
How’s this for a life-long nutrition plan: If you can’t have it today, you can always have it tomorrow. Sound pretty reasonable? Yeah, we like it too.
The STAX SystemTM
There are hundreds of diet programs out there. You’ll find the most effective ones require us to eat at least five to six meals throughout the day. Eating this many meals might seem counter intuitive, but so many programs require it because it works. Eating every three hours throughout the day is the most effective way to keep metabolism high and maximize your weight loss.
Let’s get real: The moment we leave the house our food options are convenience stores, fast food, and vending machines. If we’re supposed to eat the right food every three hours, we need to select from a list, prepare in advance, carry it with us, and eat throughout the day. Sounds complicated, right? Wrong… we’ve got the solution. Here at Reshape the Nation we use the STAX System — an all-in-one nutrition system that portions, times, and carries your meals for the day.
No more weighing, no more measuring, no more calorie-counting. With STAX, you’ll always get the right food at the right time — it’s nutrition finally made easy.
Shape The StatesTM
I created the Shape the States system of movements from the fundamental, basic movement patterns of the human body: pushing, squatting, and crunching - and I created 50 workout celebrations for each of our 50 States, utilizing different combinations of these movement patterns. Best of all, as we go thru the movements I explain what is happening in your body every step of the way.
The State Celebrations take only 10 minutes in the morning, and they can be done absolutely anywhere. Each State Celebration is followed by an “accelerator” designed to maximize fat oxidation (burning). As you “Shape the States” you’ll develop strength, muscle tone, and endurance. Most importantly, you’ll skyrocket your metabolism for maximum weight-loss and incredible energy throughout the day.
Within days you’ll feel the difference, within weeks you’ll see your new body emerging, and within months you will have completely changed your life. I’m Chris Powell, and I know that together we can transform your body, change your life, and make a difference in the lives of others around us — come Reshape the Nation with us!
