  I'm Bryan Epis. My girlfriend is Monica Focht. We wrote a diet to use while traveling and a harder pre-travel diet, then a third more detailed diet, a muscle gain plan, a maintenance plan and a supplement usage plan. They're each composed of 60 different plans based on 60 different metabolisms. Your metabolic rate is matched to one of these 60 plans. With all of them, the amount of calories, protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber to eat; the amount of water to drink; the amount of supplements to use; and the amount of calories you burn while exercising are determined by your Body Fat Percentage and therefore Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), NOT Body Mass Index (BMI) like most diets.

I have a BMI of 34 and anything over 30 is considered obese. Do I look obese? That's why diets that use BMI often fail. With many diets,1/3 of the weight you'll lose will be muscle, which slows your metabolism, setting you up for yo-yo dieting. With this diet you won't lose an ounce of muscle. Diets that say you'll lose "9 pounds in 11 days" aren't telling you that it is mostly muscle loss and temporary water loss.

Most diets that don't use BMI tell men to multiply their weight by 11 and women to multiply their weight by 10 to find metabolic rate. This assumes that all men have 17% body fat and all women have 25% body fat! This diet is based on YOUR metabolism telling you when and EXACTLY how much to eat and drink.

Our Diet is free. Some say they're free but when you get to the content they ask for money. We just ask that you consider using when making lodging reservations.
