The Truth About Burning Fat and Losing Weight with Yuri Elkaim

25 comments

Last time I had fitness/nutrition expert Yuri Elkaim on the The School of Greatness, we talked about how to get and keep up awesome energy all day long.

His insights are amazing because he knows the science and practical application of all the different kinds of diets and workouts.

I wanted to bring Yuri back on the podcast because he just wrote a new book about how to burn fat and lose weight all day long.

I was excited to ask him the truth behind the scenario so many of us struggle with.

Yuri is awesome because he’s able to make even the most complicated health issues really easy to understand and gives actionable tips to put to use.

In this episode, I asked him if there is a perfect fat-burning diet for everyone (as so many diets claim) and he said no!

Instead, he outlined what his studies have shown him work best on the most people, which is something I’d never heard of.

Best news: people are getting amazing results that are sustainable and not focused on deprivation using his eating plan.

Whether you’re looking to lose weight (finally) or not, I’m stoked to bring you this interview with one of the best in the industry, Yuri Elkaim in Episode 261.
