Coffee Chat: Dr. Life Teaches Us His Ways
You’ve probably seen his photo online before and thought, “there is no way this isn’t Photoshop’d.” Dr. Life is not only legit more ripped than you have ever been, he is likely three-times your age. Thankfully for you and your non-existent six-pack, the good doctor is here to help. His latest book hit shelves in March titled, The Life Plan Diet: How Losing Belly Fat is the Key to Gaining a Stronger, Sexier, Healthier Body.
I recently caught up with Dr. Jeffry Life for a Coffee Chat interview to ask him about what to eat, motivation, and more. Read what he had to say below:
Interview with Dr. Life
Are there any super foods we should be eating every day and why?
Lean proteins (fish, chicken, red meat, and soy) because they build muscle, requires more burns calories to metabolize, and improves your immune system; organic green leafy vegetables (raw, juiced, or steamed) because they are loaded with antioxidants that prevent vascular disease.
What type of diet goes with your training regimen? Paleo? Vegan? Raw vegan? Pescetarian?
Do you juice?
I’m a big believer with juicing, but it has to be with vegetables and non-tropical fruits.
How can you find the energy and motivation to work out after a long day of work?
I look at my before picture and I think about the crash and burn course I was headed on. That’s all the motivation I need to exercise. Taking that first little step–whether it’s walking into the gym or stepping on my bicycle is all I need to get going. Also, I think about how good I feel afterwards, and that’s motivating as well.
When you’re traveling for your book, and staying in hotels, are there any workouts you love doing in your room to stay active?
In my book, MASTERING THE LIFE PLAN, I outline an entire on the go workout that all you need to pack is a single resistance band.
If you were to choose just one thing that keeps you motivated the MOST and you can’t choose health, what would it be?
My wife, Annie.
What is one thing men at any age should know for getting fit and staying healthy?
It’s never too late to start!
