Fun fact: a 2012 estimate pegged the total amount spent worldwide on beer for St. Patrick’s Day at $245 million.
If we average it to $4 a beer, that’s over 9 ½ BILLION calories consumed.
(And we haven’t factored in other types of drinks, or the typical greasy fare that goes with them.)
It takes about 3,000 surplus calories to create 1 pound of fat.
So after some not-so-quick math we find that well over 3 million pounds of fat are added to world’s bellies, hip and thighs – IN ONE DAY.
Now THAT’s a party.
Let the treadmills of the world tremble in anticipation of the pounding they’ll get this week.

It’s a “greatest hits” compilation of some of my most popular emails (one a day), and includes a rare bonus digital copy of the first chapter of my book about the #1 key to transformation…

Stay motivated as we count down the last days of winter.
And yes, you can start from Monday.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day,
