So who is Joel Greene, exactly?
He had his 10,000 hours already in before I was even born.
In the 1970’s he was interval training.
In 1979 he was doing olympic lifts 3 hours every night.
In the 80’s he began studying MCT’s.
In 1990 he began studying the Keto diet.
In the early 90’s he was doing what would be called intermittent fasting today.
In the mid 90’s he experienced the rebound from chronic starvation. You read this today for this reason.
In the late 90’s he went through his clean eating phase, his macro phase, his ancestral diet phase.
By 2001 he had his first nutrition website publishing the cutting edge research.
By 2006 he came to the end of all the above and discovered none of it worked over time under real life pressure.
In 2007 he authored the first article to the health and fitness community based on the new science linking gut bacteria and obesity.
in 2008 his website lookcut.com hit #2 in google for weight loss, with over 1,000 original groundbreaking articles that today represent many of the most widely copied ideas in nutrition.
In 2009 he launched the worlds first diet system based on targeting the gut bacteria.
In 2010 he was implementing signal activation of the AMPK pathway. The gurus only began speaking to AMPK in 2017.
By 2013 he had the world's largest body of anecdotal outcomes for body composition targeting the gut bacteria.
In 2013 he published the first article to the health and fitness community on the dangers of MCT oil supplementation.
Today, at 53, on 1 workout a week, eating whatever, whenever, with no drugs, sarms, prohormones, or ergogenic aids ever, he is the world leader in hacking the body. He is the real deal. He has done it longer and always been far ahead. He looks it, he lives it. What the guru's say is impossible he was living every day before they were guru's.
He has hacked peak human...
working out once per week...
...eating whatever, whenever,
...and does it all on fast food!
He is the future of real world health and nutrition, today.
As creator of the VEEP Nutrition System, the worlds first commercially available program based on targeting gut communities to effect biomarkers, Joel also is a featured author, speaker, and guest in top tier publications like Muscle and Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness Digital Magazine, CBS Online, Superhuman Radio. His system has also been featured on the Dr. Phil Show where it has delivered astounding life changing results.
He is the future of real-world health and nutrition—today, and his new book was one of the most nitty-gritty deep dives into “rebooting your body” that I've ever read. The Immunity Code is simply a new paradigm and an entirely new way to think about caring for the body. The new goal is learning to control immunity, health, and aging using new science-based techniques (or hacks if you will), steer immunity for health, and to slow or even reverse aging.
This book will change everything you know about the body. Starting with simple, easy to-dos that build one on top of the other, the reader will emerge with a powerful understanding of how the body really works and how to control it over time, in the real world. Simply put, you will jump 10 years ahead of anything else on the shelf today.
