How one simple habit can supercharge your results

Good nutrition is a hassle! We all know we need to eat healthy foods in the right amounts to look and feel our best. But in practice, we see nothing but:

  • Gimmicky diets that only last weeks – or days
  • Scientific studies that all contradict one another
  • Complicated meal plans that take too long and go out the window as soon as life gets hectic

Tired of ditching diets that overpromise and under deliver?

When you take time out of your day to exercise in the middle of your busy life, you need nutrition that’s simple and effective.

Your nutrition should:

  • Energize you for training and your day
    Help you build lean muscle and burn fat with plenty of protein
  • Keep you full and not distracted by hunger
  • Make it EASY and simple to make meals and stay on track

Persist With Protein

In my decades of coaching experience, I’ve found that the clients who have the most success focus on the big wins. Instead of getting bogged down in the details, they find a few things they can do over and over every day – and the massive wins pile up.

The Persist With Protein Ebook shows you exactly how to focus on just a few things that really work to look and perform your best:

  • Starting each day with protein by choosing a few breakfasts you love for your rotation
  • Rounding out your meals with fiber and foods that keep you full
  • Tracking your progress to build a new healthy habit

I've Helped Tens of Thousands Look Good and Move Well - How about you?

When I started coaching over 20 years ago, I was overly enthusiastic. I made the mistake of making things too darned complicated – and my clients lost their trust in me. While motivation was high at first, they simply couldn’t keep up with their careers, their fitness, and an overly detailed nutrition plan all at the same time.

I vowed to learn to help as many people as I could by making training and nutrition simple, repeatable, fun, and effective.

Now, over ten thousand athletes are currently training with Functional Bodybuilding. And just by sharing my nutrition approach on social media, many have reached their goals even faster – and maintained them.

When my clients overcome all the friction points to great nutrition and see how easy it can be, it lights me up. And I want to share those results with as many people as I can.

So after countless requests, I’m bringing my complete nutrition approach to you – and making it easier than ever to get started.

Want to thank Marcus for taking me into joining FBB two years ago. With proper nutrition and your workouts I have accomplished a look and a feel that I didn’t think I could get to! I’ll be 61 in December and never felt or looked better. Thanks again!!!
I learned better strategies and re-committed to putting my own training and nutrition first above all else. The best part was personal satisfaction of making progress, and knowing my future self is super grateful for my present self.
Your food tips are seriously some of the best things I take away from your page. Thank you for giving real food examples of what to eat. When I talk with people about nutrition i always point them to you.
