Paul Chek: Hey! It's Paul Chek Jr. from Paul Chek Live. I am here with Sean Croxton with Underground Wellness, one of my favorite guys on YouTube bringing it real every time. I am here in San Diego, my family got a chance to catch up with him. I just wanted to give a little bit about his history, how did he get to where he is on YouTube, talking the real truth about nutrition. Tell us how does this journey start for you? Sean Croxton: Oh man, a lot of failure. A lot of failure like Michael Jordan says, every time I fail, it helps me to succeed. I failed with a lot of clients in the past and me being the perfectionist that I am, me being the caring individual that I am, I want to understand why I was failing. I got the whole Kinesiology degree from a particular university and I emphasized in fitness, nutrition and health and applying information that they provided to me in college in a real setting, not just – because they teaches theory in college but not the real practical portion of it. Applying in it in my personal training business is failed, 90% of the time. I tried to apply this food guide pyramid to everybody and it just isn't working. I was literally the guy telling people 7:00 till 11:00 severing the bread, saying, bread, rice or pasta. I was telling people to have all these cereals with soy, making modified ingredients, I said, drink the low fat milk, you can cut the saturated fat. I was that guy, I was the poster boy. Paul Chek: And what were the results that was supposed to bring, that your family to get? Sean Croxton: People got fatter. Paul Chek: Okay. Sean Croxton: Yeah, people got depressed, people were miserable, they couldn't stick to the diet, and I didn't understand why because you pay tens of thousands of dollars for its education and you respect everything that you learned there from these educated people to be the truth and it took me a long time to pull out my brain and wash it off, you know what I am saying, and put it back in and you will study and learn why it's not true and to also learn what was true and when I began to apply the new things that I learned overtime, I found that I was more successful with my client. Not only with just my clients but also with myself, as well my own health. Paul Chek: So what was one of the first things that you noticed that it's just grossly wrong, you started to realize this is one of the key things that I am doing wrong, that they taught me was definitely supposed to be the right thing to do? Sean Croxton: Way too many carbohydrates. Paul Chek: Way too many carbohydrates. Sean Croxton: Way too many carbohydrates. And way too little fat. Paul Chek: So to the audience out there. It's just a general suggestion you would say as one of the primary things, watch how much carbs you need in general. Sean Croxton: Exactly, your body doesn't lie to you. So if you are eating too many carbohydrates, your body is going to tell you. You are going to crash. You are not going to feel good, you are going to be hungry every hour to. You are not supposed to be that way but the foods that they say we are supposed to eat make us hungry so we can buy more food. Paul Chek: Interesting! Sean Croxton: Right, but fat and the protein -- I don't evocate any one size fits all diet, antimetabolic typing. If anybody has watched my channel before, they probably know that. But yeah I thought we need more fat, we need more protein in the diet because that's what keeps us full, that's what keeps us satisfied, that's what provides the essential fatty acids, the amino acids that make us us. The carbohydrates you don't need that many of them. We've actually gotten was ten-pounds heavier since the whole low fat crags. Paul Chek: So give a view as a little synopsis of what Metabolic Typing means in a nutshell? Sean Croxton: Metabolic Typing is personalized, customized, nutrition for you. We are finding which system in your body is responsible for how you response to different foods. When we find that s
