Christmas Abbott Seminar

Has anyone here ever attended or know someone that attended the seminar put on my Christmas Abbott for nutrition? Was thinking about attending but not sure what all is covered/included.

I think she is very cute, but I have no knowledge as to her expertise in nutrition etc. I didn't know she did seminars. Perhaps someone else here has been to one?

She was on Barbell Shrugged a while back and I think she is a subscriber to the Zone school of thought.

This was my thought as well, just because someone is a decent athlete does not mean they are worth paying to hear their views on nutrition. From the information I found via Google (not much) it looks like it is some generic Zone/Paleo information and likely not worth your time or money. I could definitely be wrong though since there is not much to go off of.

Re: Christmas Abbott Seminar

yep, from what ive seen/read she seems to be a Zoner. I also found a sample diet of hers awhile back, its pretty standard stuff but a LOT of fats. From what i remember, she basically lives on protein shakes(Progenex i believe) and almond butter/avocados with very little whole food in between.

Re: Christmas Abbott Seminar

That is a pet peeve of mine as well. We have a bodybuilder at my gym that trains athletes for sports performance with no other qualifications other than the fact that he's jacked. He runs these guys into the ground with conditioning workouts to failure. I just shake my head

Re: Christmas Abbott Seminar

Perverts with too much disposable income are probably just signing up to creep on her. ha

Of all the seminars out there, I can't say taking a nutrition seminar from her would be anywhere near the top of my list.

Re: Christmas Abbott Seminar

Geez, that devolved quick. Her seminar may very well not be very good. But we should at least get a review from someone who attended before labeling it a waste of money, no?

Basically sounds like an inspiriational seminar. Some people need that.

My sweet girl Christmas told me that for the next few weeks I can have only ONE cheat snack (not even a meal...a SNACK)
That is enough for me...
