What's the Deal with The Nip Tuck Workout?

What's the Deal with The Nip Tuck Workout?

Did you ever watch Nip/Tuck? I sure did, which is why I was a bit horrified when I heard about the Nip Tuck Workout. Turns out the name is the only real similarity between the show and the diet.

In The Nip Tuck Workout -- Exercise through the Eyes of a Plastic Surgeon ($15.99), Dr. Bruce Nadler has created an exercise program based on the plastic surgical principles of proportion and symmetry. It combines careful ongoing analysis with an individualized exercise prescription all without going under the knife. Sounds funky having a plastic surgeon tell you how to exercise, I know. However, Dr. Nadler is a little different because aside from practicing for 28 years, he is also a personal trainer certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and the International Sports Sciences Association, a competitive body builder and a NPC bodybuilding and figure competition judge. So you could say he knows his stuff.

The program incorporates precise body shaping with core stability training using natural kinesthetic patterns of movement. His medical background allows him to modify the training to adapt to the physical restrictions many people have felt prevented them from exercising.

To learn the first five steps of getting started as well as where to buy the book,

  1. Eliminate all refined sugars (yes, this means chocolate)
    Sugar creates insulin surges that store fat and cause inflammation in the body.
  2. Divide your food into 5-6 meals daily (Ignore your mother, you should eat between meals). This is another way to prevent those insulin surges.
  3. Eliminate all starchy carbohydrates (i.e. bread, potatoes, pasta etc.) but maintain fibrous carbohydrates (fruits and vegetables) and lean protein (eat fruit when you crave sweets).
  4. Determine appropriate portion size based on intensity of physical activity (be sure to eat sufficient protein).
  5. Add proper nutritional supplements as necessary depending on exercise phase.

Still interested? You can buy the book from If you live in the LA area, you can train with Dr. Nadler in person, just visit for more details on how.
