'I Must Have It' Drives Journey to Near Perfect Body and More

One afternoon Roger Shorr, a retired financial planner enjoying life in Florida, prepared to drink his afternoon beer, something he did almost daily.

But on this day, he questioned the action. His decision not to drink that beer sparked an ongoing set of discoveries.

In time, he found what he came to call his Near Perfect Body, something he had given up on and something that he writes actually found him -- at the age of 68.

Yes, 68 years old!

With a heavy focus on nature and martial arts strategies, as well as basic psychological principles, he explains

the steps he took and the strategies he used to achieve his Near Perfect Body so you can, too.

Learn how the more he shed the idea of the "perfect" body, and reprogrammed himself to want his Near Perfect Body.

Join Roger as he explains his discoveries in The Near Perfect Life.

Then learn how to use his strategies and approach to become healthier, fitter and happier with The Near Perfect Body and The Near Perfect Body Journal .

If you must have it -- better health, greater fitness and more happiness, then Roger Shorr's books are what you need to finally have it.


'Never could I have realized'

Never could I have realized that my Near Perfect Body was only 4 1/2 months away. The journey taught me that simplicity, friendship, optimism and consistency are all that were necessary to get everything I wanted.

Odds are you feel this way

The odds are pretty good that you probably feel as I have felt countless times as I tried different strategies to control and manage my weight, find methods to look better and become more fit.

It will soon shine brilliantly

If you can find a way to identify and focus on what is the easiest of solutions rather than all of the other things competing for your attention, it will soon shine brilliantly like truth always does.

Who is Roger Shorr?

Roger Shorr, a retired financial planner, wasn’t planning on finding a powerful new approach to greater health, fitness and happiness. It found him.

Without fasting or going hungry, and without pills or medical procedures, he inadvertently transformed himself, and in the process created what he dubbed his Near Perfect Body.

Using techniques he blended from his martial arts background and his knowledge of Sun Tzu, he developed natural, easy techniques anyone can follow, including Hunger Jujutsu, Exercise Jujutsu, avoiding the Willpower Trap, and the all-important Tipping Point.

He is a former Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional who contributed articles to websites for Forbes, Barrons and Investopedia, among others.

He also wrote a financial guide called “Seven Timeless Investment Mistakes and What Successful Investors Must Know.”

The Near Perfect Body is his first book, which he wrote in between rounds of golf, his fitness routine and time spent with friends in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he lives with his wife Jennifer and their dog, Daisy.

and the pathway to yours

Putting It All Together

Putting It All Together

December 02, 20233 min read

We have come a long way. This chapter is designed to lay out your path in one place. Hopefully, it will serve as a reference as well as a device to keep you on track. (See your doctor before you start your quest and keep him or her in the loop.)

First, you need to get your NPB Journal. We need to plan your day tomorrow. You should be in your journal every day and plan the next day. You should have an idea of what you are going to eat. You need to focus on portion size as well. A decent breakfast. No pancakes with syrup, doughnuts, or fried anything, please. Maybe a bowl of cereal with a cut-up banana. Perhaps some scrambled eggs and one slice of toast. Little or no butter. Perhaps some oatmeal. Add to that maybe some fruit.

Putting it all together

If you are into protein bars (small protein shakes are nice, too), maybe snack on one before lunch if you need to. For lunch, maybe soup and half a sandwich. Or maybe a whole sandwich and more fruit. Dinner, a helping of poultry, fish, or meat. A potato, some vegetables, and a salad with no or very little dressing.

Remember to eat some fruit at least five minutes or more before dinner to take your hunger edge off. For your first four or five bites of dinner, you should eat slowly; if you must, kind of fast is OK. Then, you will need to slow down. Breathe four or five times between bites. Relax. I am here with you and trying to coach you. If you must, use the formidable Hunger Jiu-Jitsu technique known as the pattern interrupt to take control. Get up from the table. Take a two- to three-minute walk.

Look at your shirtless or bathing suit picture, or even go to the bathroom and remove your shirt and remind yourself of what you are doing and what you said you must have!

Now, go back to the table and take a bite, but chew slowly. Drink a little extra water. Eat more vegetables, and if you must, pattern interrupt yourself again. You need to start resenting the fact that you have to do this. Learning more self-control can free you from pattern interrupts in the future, and most importantly, help you change the way you think about eating.

No desserts in the losing weight phase, please. Maybe some honey-sweetened tea or a diet root beer or something like that. Even an apple or some fruit is OK. But nothing else until you hit your target weight. And even then, very little or no junk, OK? You need to determine your target weight early in your quest. You can readjust later, but you need a target. Remember?

Take notes in the Notes section of your NPB Journal. Record your daily weigh-ins and write down, in summary, the exercises you did. Of course, when you get a compliment, that goes in your journal first!

This allows you to track how closely you are following the system and to determine if you are giving it the effort it, and you, deserve.

Be honest with yourself. Do you think you are putting forth enough effort to put you on the path to achieving your NPB? Have you selected at least three or four favorite mantras and are you saying them at least several times every day? You need to do this, as it is an important part of reprogramming your mind and getting rid of old habits.
