Want to know how to get in shape in just a few steps? All you need to do is rush to a bookstore this week.
This month, GRACIEMAG serves up the absolute champion in reader mail, ever since the magazine first launched.
No, it’s not a fighter, not even an individual. It’s the famed, albeit mysterious, dietary method developed by Grandmaster Carlos – the spectacular Gracie Diet.
After receiving a truckload of letters inquiring about the subject, coming from the most diverse nooks and crannies around the planet, GRACIEMAG pulled up its sleeves and put together a definitive practical guide for you to eat like true champions do. And eat with pleasure, without having to cut much from the menu.
On savorily illustrated pages, we answer your main questions.
* How can I get in shape and acquire the same level of resilience as the Gracies and their students?
* What do I have for breakfast and lunch in the Diet?
* Why are rice and beans a Gracie Diet no-no?
* What’s the proper way to eat fruit, and where do I find them?
* How do I stick to the Diet if I move to a colder-climate country?
All these answers and much more can be found in better bookstores around the country, starting this week. Give the Gracie Diet a shot, securing your copy of this historic endeavor (you’ve never read anything like it), and be happy and healthy for years to come.
