Dennis Franks’ Wellness Routine
Staying in shape is a priority for me. I am goal-driven and wired for pursuit. Poor health would stop me in my tracks and I don’t enjoy sitting on the sidelines! But, I also don’t want to be pre-occupied with a complicated eating plan. I have to keep it simple. The following guidelines keep me on track with my wellness goals, even during a very busy book tour.
- Protein and Fiber with each meal make losing [and managing] weight no big deal!
- Eliminate/limit the white stuff [bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, and sugar].
This is a typical day of eating for me. It varies, but here are the basics:
- Breakfast: 2 eggs, a side of Canadian bacon, bacon or sausage, avocado and tomato.
- Lunch: A colorful salad topped with chicken or fish.
- Dinner: A side of meat and a plateful of vegetables.
- Snacks: A TLS shake, fruit.
- 64 oz. of water a day.

Muscle dictates metabolism – it turns your body into a fat-burning machine. To maintain lean muscle, I do something physical each day. This means either a challenging work out at the gym or some active play – hiking, golf, whatever. You can find the specifics of my workout routine in my new book, The Last Laugh Playbook.
I bathe my cells with nutrients daily. It fills the gaps in my diet and provides the raw materials needed for building and repair. My regimen includes Anti-aging Isotonix Essentials, Calcium plus, and Resveratrol. I also take supplements therapeutically for cognitive health, joint health, weight management. To learn more about these supplements visit www.isotonix.com/dennisfranks.
Your body and brain need sleep to refresh and repair. Most of us need a solid 8 hours of sleep, so I try to get to bed at 11 pm and up at 7 am.
These principles are the centerpiece of my wellness plan. Yes, I enjoy an occasional beer, snack or dessert. The key is they are occasional.
