PJ’s 15 Faves

Here are PJ’s 15 Faves – Take a look at his photo. It’s hard to argue with success. He got me on the road to broccoli.



1. Grass-fed beef.  Steaks, ground, patties, jerky, etc. I use ground beef mostly, and put it in omelets, stirfry, etc. I also make my favorite recipe (because it’s quick and easy) called “BS squared.” This includes ground beef, broccoli, spinach, and shallots. I eat 2-3 pounds per day.

2. Broccoli. Boy, I used to hate this one, but I can’t get enough of it now! I eat 1-2 pounds per day. This is a superfood. It is basically a multivitamin in food form. In fact, If humans ate only beef and broccoli every day (and got some sun for vitamin D), they would not only be able to survive, they would THRIVE!

3. Spinach. Cooked in ‘BS squared’ (recipe on Xgym website) is my fav, but raw works too in a salad. This is a super food like broccoli. It is also a “negative fat food” like broccoli. This means, it makes you burn fat off your body, and the more you eat, the more fat you burn. You can actually eat yourself skinny with dark greens like these.

4. Onions. I use tem in everything. Sometimes my onions come in the form of shallots or leeks, but they make recipes rock!

5. Almonds. This little nut is high protein and high fiber for a powerful punch when it comes to nutritious snacks. It’s easy too! No prep needed.

6. Ketchup. I put ketchup on almost everything. I use my own recipe though, because regular ketchup is about as toxic as rat poison. Click here for my recipe on the X Gym website (scroll down on the page to find it).

7. MRM protein shake. This is my typical breakfast. I’m not hungry in the morning, but I know I need to get something in me, so MRM (100% all natural) is the cleanest and best tasting shake I’ve found.

8. Pure Fit bars. These are a great snack, and are whole food instead of chemicals like most other bars.

9. Pepper Jack cheese. May fav cheese by far. Spicy and yummity goodness! I put this in everything too, and melt it over stuff as well.

10. Chobani plain Greek yogurt. This is the only kind of Greek yogurt I like to eat plain, but a handful of blueberries and a couple drops of Stevia make for a sweet snack when I need one.

11. Pudding. What? Pudding? Yep, I’ve got my own recipe for that too. The X Gym recipe page will show you how. This can be a great ice cream recipe too.

12. Ice Cream. What? Ice cream? Yep, it’s the same as the pudding recipe, but poured into BPA free popsicle molds. Oh yeah! All-you-can eat pudding and ice cream, and the only side effect is that your skinny pants get too loose!

13. Asparagus. What a great snack! Rolled in a piece of organic lunch meat with some cream cheese or slice of pepper jack is amazing.

14. Blueberries. These little fellas put great flavor in stuff or are a super snack by themselves.

15. Water. Filtered is better for you than tap, but reverse osmosis is the best. I drink 3-4 quarts of this per day, and sometimes squirt some flavored Stevia in for variety. This is the most important “food” for fitness and fat loss. No one will reach their goals without enough of this – guaranteed.

  2. Why is water so important to weight loss?
    I read that it is all the time with grandiose promises of making you leaner, more cut, feel fuller, makes you smarter blah blah blah, but I can’t convince myself that its that critical… I need some science to back up why its helping anything.
    I have a hard time getting excited about drinking water…I start with good intentions, but often end the day staring at a full bottle of water….

    • Hi Sara, I have a great answer for you too. It is actually a section in my book, “Cracking Your Calorie Code” and a whole chapter in the book I co-authored, “101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health” Just go to this link and read all about it: http://xgym.com/hudor-the-miracle-substance/

  3. Hi Sara – great question. As you know, I am not the nutritional expert, and I understand your feelings completely. Here’s what I’ve learned that helped make the difference for me. (1) it is your liver that metabolizes fat, and to keep it humming along at top form (to flush out toxins and all the energy it burns) it needs plenty of water (2) if you don’t get enough water, your body hangs on to what it’s got, leaving you bloated, (3) dehydration is often confused with hunger, leading you to eat more.

    Here are a couple more articles on the point:

    Even though convinced, I still have to work at it to get all the water in – here’s what I do:
    Drink cran-water that I make myself.
    1/4 cup pure cranberry juice (by at Trader Joe’s)
    32 oz water
    a bit of Stevia to taste

    I can easily drink 64 oz of this makes a tasty, refreshing drink. Hope this helps.
