The much anticipated companion to the online program is here: The 131 Method Book. The book version of Chalene Johnson’s “anti-diet” approach to weight loss (which to date has served over 35,000 members) takes you through the nuts and bolts of diet phasing. The personalized solution differentiates the 131 from every other diet that’s a one-size-fits-all approach. No two bodies are the same, which is why traditional diets tend to fail. True weight loss comes from gut and hormone repair, not counting calories.
The Crux Of The 131 Method
Diet phasing is as old as mankind. Basic survival meant phasing the diet with every change of season, and the availability and scarcity of certain foods. This made our ancestors metabolically flexible. Inflexibility is what gets us “stuck” at a certain weight. Bodies crave homeostasis, meaning, that scale that won’t budge isn’t your imagination. You’re probably doing “all the right things” according to conventional wisdom. But, no amount of calorie counting can correct the underlying mechanisms involved with sustained weight loss and internal healing. When done correctly, diet phasing delivers:
- Hormone balance
- Freedom from obsessive dieting
- Balanced insulin sensitivity
- Increased metabolic flexibility
- Increased gut microbiome diversity
- Seasonal convenience
- Freedom to eat a wide variety of foods
The 131 Method (and 131 Method Book) consists of three phases: Ignite, Nourish and Renew. Each is laid out so that you not only know what to eat for YOUR body, but also understand the science behind the “why.” Anyone can write a book with a meal plan, but what happens when the foods on that plan don’t agree with your body? What happens when you plain just don’t like the meals listed? Well, most people ditch that diet, feel like a failure and hop to the next trend. You see, part of the magic of the 131 comes from identifying the foods that leave you feeling bloated, grumpy, itchy, achy, tired and inflamed. Once you kick those to the curb and customize your ideal foods, weight loss becomes easier, and rather effortless. And it doesn’t feel like a diet.
It’s Not Just About Food
Mindset plays an enormous role in, well, just about everything. Have you ever succeeded in anything meaningful without being in the right state of mind? The 131 Method knows that your relationship with food, your self-talk and commitment, begins with the stories you tell yourself. That’s why Chalene coaches you as only she can: with spunk, style, a touch of comedy and pure heart. She often says, “you can’t mess this up,” and helps people overcome lifelong “dieter’s mentality.”
Open the first chapter and you’ll know right away why Chalene has the credentials and passion to pull off the #131movement. After regurgitating what fellow fitness professionals preached about exercise and eating habits for years, Chalene began experiencing a series of health issues. Determined to sleuth out what ailed her by diving deep into testing and research, she began a personal quest to heal her brain, and body. As she recovered, using food, diet phasing, sleep, proper exercise, gut healing protocols and fasting techniques, she compiled her findings into a method anyone could do, with the right guide. Thanks to her own detective work, consulting and interviewing dozens of doctors, and hiring some of the best registered dietitians in the industry, the 131 Method was born.
With over 100 brand-new recipes designed for each phase, the 131 Method Book makes implementation super easy! Find the recipes specific to the phase you’re in, or, use your new knowledge to branch out and create some of your own. Chalene’s motto is, “you’re not on a diet, you have a diet.”
Unapologetic about calling out the fitness and food industries, Chalene gets gutsy by going against the grain. She’s prepared to shake up the industry, because big business has NO business telling you what to eat. Chalene gives it to you straight regarding food labeling and the tactics big businesses use to line their wallets at the expense of your health. Chalene says, “diets are dumb. You aren’t.” You certainly won’t be after grabbing a copy of the 131 Method Book!
