The PEERtrainer Cheat System

Jackie (co-founder of PEERtrainer) and Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Today I was e-mailed a link from the creators of 

For those of you not familiar with PEERtrainer or my personal journey of finding my happy place with food, I want you to know that the creators and the community over at were fundamental to my recovery and I would never be where I am today without their input and guidance.

So when I received their invitation today to preview a FREE system that they have developed over time as a result of seeing what worked and what didn't for their members, I knew I would be very interested. They are big proponents of Dr. Joel Fuhrman and the Nutritarian way of eating. They are calling their ideas "The PEERtrainer Cheat System, A Simple Guide to Healthy and Long Term Weight Loss" and I will testify that everything I have learned from them has worked to my advantage in this war.

If you are interested in checking out this new system, go here and sign-up to receive the .pdf of the 26 page "book." You will enter your name and e-mail address and then you will have to go back into your inbox to confirm. Only then will you be e-mailed the .pdf. Everything that I have received from this company has been well worth giving them my e-mail address!!!!!

I'll be honest, I haven't read it yet, but I trust them and I was so excited to share it with you. If you read it, please come back here and let all of know what you think! I certainly will!

UPDATE: I have read through the system twice now and I can say it is worth consideration. It is a real life nutritarian or beginner nutritarian system that encourages the consumption of vegetables and beans while educating about how much other healthy food can be eaten without getting into trouble EACH AND EVERY DAY (think nuts, fruits and avocado).

I have made some suggestions to PEERtrainer about how to improve the book and I believe that all of my suggestions will be incorporated into the edited versions. I am going to begin to think about my food choices this new-ish way and I will provide you all with updates and possibly information about how the recipes that I feature fare in the PEERtrainer Cheat System plan.

I don't think I knew that about you! I've been with PT for about 5 years now (on and off). Thanks for confirming what I felt about them.

It was so funny to see the same topic from you AND PT in my inbox this morning.

Have a great day Wendy and thanks for being around!

Thanks for the link! :D

I read it quickly and it made a lot of sense. I need to print it out and study it some more, but PT may be on to something. I'm glad you turned me on to their site.

This is so interesting! I'm so glad you gave us the link. I would love to know the suggestions you will make to their system.

Thank you for all you do for your readers! You are making such a difference in helping me stay enthusiastic in my plant-strong journey.

My suggestions were as follows:

include more foods (tofu, tempeh, almond milk, flaxseed, chia seed, etc.)

for every food listed on the cheat side, in parenthesis after the food put the measurement that equals 100 calories

I thing there is a high possibility that there will be many revised additions of the plan so if you have any ideas, e-mail them to Jackie:

Mandy Robinson said...

Those additions are really helpful to think about... thank you so much!

Until they update with measurements (I totally agree that would be super helpful), I do find the 100 calorie idea to be interesting. It is already helping me make better choices in the past 24 hours. Thanks again!

Mandy Robinson said...

Thank you for this update! I love the idea of adding the measurements. For now, I am finding the 100 calorie tip helpful. I have already made some changes in the past 24 hours that I wouldn't have thought could be so easy.

I'd love to know your thoughts if you find any more helpful hits to their cheat points system.

Thanks again!

PS - I'm sorry if this blog post repeats twice. I thought I hit "post" and it doesn't seem to work.

Mandy Robinson said...

Random thought after I just posted... are you still using the Miso dressing? (I'm having some now :) I read your post recommending it awhile back and really like it! I was looking at the label and see it has some oil in it. I just wondered how you handle that? Thanks!
