DEUCE Nutrition

Want the body of your dreams?
It all comes down to diet.

We are here to assist you in finding real-world nutrition solutions for your everyday life. The DEUCE Nutrition curriculum takes an intentional look at how to best fuel your body, mind and spirit regardless of your goals—performance, aesthetic, or otherwise.

Anyone—no matter their body type or the size of their goals—can find success in this program because of its adherence to the following protocols:

The power of body recomposition

At DEUCE Nutrition, we focus our efforts on improving each student’s relationship with food and working to improve body composition. What is body composition? Well, it’s your ratio of lean body mass (muscle tissue) to adipose tissue (fat, skin, etc.). Whether your goals are performance, aesthetics, or something else, increasing total lean body mass and reducing fat tissue is paramount. Join us to learn how!

Leveraging macronutrients

Simplify, simplify, simplify. At the end of the day, the most important aspect of improving your body composition is monitoring calorie balance (calories in vs. calories out). That said, we are very concerned with maximizing your results and the way we do this is by finding the appropriate breakdown of protein, carbohydrates, and fat (the macronutrients) to reach your goals. Just like with anything, the more specific the inputs, the more specific the outputs. To reach your goals fastest, we take the most optimal approach with a macronutrient prescription that is specific to you.

Consistency & accountability

There is no greater asset to your nutrition journey than your own personal accountability. Ultimately this experience and your results rest in your very capable hands. Our coaches and team are beyond excited to provide you immediate and continuous accountability, along with the support you need to maintain consistency in your efforts. Stay the course, and always remember that when in doubt — KEEP GOING.

Which course is right for you?

Based on a few universal factors, our 101 offering outlines basic nutritional guidance and sets all students up for success and improved body composition. Featuring macronutrient and calorie breakdowns by weight and gender, this template includes all the proverbial answers to the test.

Look, every so-called “expert” has their own opinion when it comes to macros—some of it works, some if it doesn’t. Here’s what we know: Our template works. We know this because our coaches have years of experience working with men and women of various body types and compositions. That’s given us ample time to dial in our recommendations and figure out what works for our clients as they’ve refined their diets and transformed their bodies. That’s how we know it’ll work for you too—as long as you do the work to make sure you adhere to it.

So if you’re a curious and self-motivated person looking for a little bit of guidance, this is for you.

Hi, I'm Coach Ben 🙂

Get to know our DEUCE Nutrition Head Coach

My name is Ben, and I haven’t always had a healthy relationship with food, fitness, my body or myself. Years of disordered eating and an extreme fitness addiction brought me here.

Long story, short — I’ve made all the mistakes.

For 15 years I struggled with body image issues that I couldn’t handle, and I blamed myself. Not something you often hear a man talk about, I was stuck and didn’t have the language to express myself, or the resources I needed to make a change. Until I found this community.

This community gave me an opportunity to find safety and belonging. It was DEUCE Gym and the loving support I’ve received here in Venice, Hermosa, and Hollywood that allowed me to grow and develop, not only professionally but in my own health and fitness.

It might not be easy (as my lifetime of screwups can attest), but it’s most certainly doable. And if I’m on my way there, then you can be too. We can be too.

I am here to help you on this journey, to show you that building a healthy, sustainable, secure relationship with food can be a reality, and with just a little attention to detail, intentionality, and the support of a loving community, we can make it happen. Together.

This universal effort means more to me than I could ever express. I’d love to join you on your journey. Even more, I would be honored to have you become a part of mine.

We’re in this together.
