The Lean Life

The lean lifeDo you learn more through stories than textbooks?
Do you lose interest when something gets so technical and complex it sounds like it was written in another language? Are you ready to make healthy living a consistent priority in your life? If you answer YES then keep reading!

The Lean Life is an education about health and nutrition told through a compelling story; instead of the typical dry, boring, textbook format.

Here is what you get:

  • An education in STORY form, with recaps presented in a very unique way for reinforced learning.
  • You will be able to RELATE to the challenges faced in The Lean Life (formerly titled Every Step Counts).
  • You will learn how the body works! How fats, protein, and carbs work in the body and how YOU can manipulate them to get the body you want!
  • After the story is over, you get your very own FitLife Workbook! Grab a pencil as Brooks developed this workbook when working with high-end clients that wanted a 1-on-1 or small group custom education (over $200 value).
  • Workbook includes goal setting, food lists, the amazing KISS handout, and ONE exercise that will help stop that pesky low-back pain.
  • Over 200 pages of story, workbook, and more!

The Lean Life will bring you close to the life of a likable kid named Timmy who finally had to confront his weight in the wake of some family health problems. Follow his journey as he goes off to college and his attempts to not only find, but better himself. You learn as Timmy learns, and by the end YOU will be ready to take action and ultimately set your own path to a healthier, happier future.

What if I already know about health, fitness, and nutrition? By reading this book, you will gain clear, concise, and easy ways to communicate what you know to others! If you are a trainer or health professional that works with clients, the story aspect will help you better communicate with your clients, as the explanations in this book are great!

Is this book right for you? If you like reading stories, you will love this book. Every Step Counts is a story…and the boy is just one of the characters. As he moves through the story, you will be learning and applying it to yourself. It is not ‘detailed’ just for him. It is there to teach everybody what they need to be doing to be healthy. You will learn how the body works, processes foods, etc.

Each ‘lesson’ is recapped with a ‘letter to mom’ which is a like a review of what he learned as he shares his knowledge with his mother. Plus, at the end, there is a 22 page workbook that applies to YOU! If you are looking for a structured, ‘to the point’ meal plan then the jump start plan may be a better option. This book will help you understand ‘why’ the Jump Start plan works so well, so it could be a very good compliment.


Get the 22 page Fit Life workbook! Every Step Counts concludes with the 22 page ‘Fit Life workbook’ that will help you fine-tune your life, mindset, and weight loss goals! The fit life workbook works extremely well with the ‘Natalie Jill’ principals of clean eating and goal achievement. “As somebody with 20 years experience in corporate goal setting and achievement, I really liked the simplicity and effectiveness of the program…AMAZING!” – Natalie Jill

What others have to say about The Lean Life (formerly titled Every Step Counts):

Joan I read Every Step Counts and I loved it! I could not believe all the useful info in it, I love the way it was written about that family. I loved the part of diet mt. dew, and now I have a new snack idea! There was so much I liked about it. I believe in the positive thinking and writing all of it down. I find myself squeezing my glutes, standing taller and pulling in my abs all day… very inspirational!” – Joan Mcmullen who lost 45 lbs in 12 weeks following the Jump Start Plan and reading Every Step Counts (photo to the left)
Luz- THANK YOU! I am loving the story!I love to read, I usually read 2 or 3 books at the same time, depending on my mood but I most likely finish all 3 around the same time, but this book is worth to be read at every moment! – Luz
Jennifer- Brooks’ “storytelling approach” to writing this book ensures you WILL LEARN what you need to know. It is a brilliant way to help people understand how to ignore the manipulation of the food industry and confusing hype and get down to the basics that will give you results. Timmy represents half of the population and his battles are common ones we all face. Awesome (from a teacher’s perspective), brilliant and unforgettable!” -Jennifer, SwiftKick Fitness and Lifestyle Coaching
Patricia It’s a great book, everybody! You won’t be disappointed. I have been an Occupational Therapist for 20 years prior to being an Attorney and I thought I knew all I needed to know about posture, diet, exercise and injury. Brooks has taught me quite a bit in this book. Easy to practice advice that won’t stress you out. Things you can practice while simply living your life.- Patricia Boyle
