Thomas DeLauer is an American YouTuber, successful businessman, and fitness trainer, who uploads nutrition and fitness videos to more than 1.89 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
DeLauer was born on May 6, 1988, in the United States.
He went to study art history in Italy at the age of 12.
During that time, Thomas developed some unhealthy habits and became overweight. He actually reached 280 pounds. After he finished his studies, he had become a successful entrepreneur.
But, DeLauer realized that he needed to get back in shape. Later, Thomas spent a few months of training hard and lost about 100 pounds.
In his own words:
”After living abroad in Italy and studying art history at the age of 12, I fell in love with sculpting a physique.”
DeLauer went on to say:
”And realized that I could put all of the hard work and dedication into something that could really tell a story and inspire others.”
He used keto and fasting to reduce his internal inflammation as well as to lose the extra unnecessary weight.
Me at 260lbs…. 30lbs into my keto and intermittent fasting journey close to 10 years ago. I remember this day vividly….
After seeing the results on himself, Thomas started to be a coach.
He wrote in his blog description:
”I became a coach after I knew that I could provide what was needed to get the world’s best business people the results that they need.”
The Science-Based Six Pack Program
After, Thomas created the Science-Based Six Pack Program.
The program is broken down into 3 phases.
Phase 1 – in this phase, you eat just during an eight-hour window of the day. The fasting is done three days per week.
Phase 2 – in this phase, the hours when you eat stays the same, but you fast for four days per week.
Phase 3 – in this phase, you eat during a six-hour window of the day. The fasting is done five days per week.

Day 2 of the bone broth fast. Down 2.1lbs (but probably just food). Fasting glucose is still highly elevated. A bit concerning as it is probably a combined dawn phenomena (Liver glycogen dump) and heavy catecholamine response (beta adrenergic activity from the fast). I did feel a tad hypoglycemic yesterday which could have been a result of high carbs the day prior, resulting in the glycogen dump. . Ketones are present at close to 1mmol. So a state of Ketosis but nowhere near ketonemia with the presence of glucose too (I would have to see 8mmol + in conjunction with 100+ glucose to be concerned there). .. Anyhow, just an update for fun 😊 . #fasting #fastingchallenge #bonebroth #keto
According to the program’s website, “The whole point of the Science-Based Six-Pack program is to open up a fasting window in which your body can target stored fat reserves instead of being busy digesting food all day long.”
DeLauer started his YouTube channel on November 28, 2009. The channel has over 1.89 million subscribers and more than 153 million views.
His expertise is in the area of a ketogenic lifestyle and fitness.
The most popular video on the channel is titled – ”How to do Intermittent Fasting: Complete Guide.” The video has more than 4 million views.
DeLauer has accrued more than 209,000 followers on his Instagram account.
Thomas married Amber DeLauer, his high school girlfriend. During an interview, DeLauer said about his wife:
”I have been with my wife since high school.”
”And I am exceptionally proud of the fact that in an industry that is so full of shallowness that I have managed to have a stable home life with a wife that is as supportive as they come.”
She is also a fitness enthusiast.
The couple has one child, named Thomas Everett DeLauer Jr., who was born on November 3, 2017.
After his son was born, Thomas wrote on his Facebook account:
”Words cannot express the feeling of fulfillment that both Amber and I️ now have in our hearts and lives.”
DeLauer later added:

Whoa, whoa, whoa…. I goofed up and missed #nationalpuppyday ?! Welll, not the first time I’ve goofed up- Like this one time that Kolt snuck a HUGE kiss on Tommy when we were posing for a family picture. 🤦🏼♀️🤣 Swipe 👉🏼 for that photo fail- Best mom ever! I guess it’s payback for all of the times they’ve patiently put up with Tommy pulling on ears and fur over the past 17 months 😊. But really, they’ve totally embraced having a busy toddler running around the house, and we love that Tommy has a few built-in playmates to run around with, hike with, chase birds with, feed his dinner that he doesn’t want (looking at you, Timmy🙄), and help him sharpen that pitching arm 🐶🎾 (no joke- kids got a future in baseball, thanks to Remi! 🤣). Couldn’t ask for better fur babies than these! 😍🐾🐾🐾 #LoveMyDogs #DogsAreTheBest #KidsBestFriend #FurBabies #Siblings
”Our home is filled with so much love and happiness, I️ even find myself gasping for air sometimes.”
DeLauer is 5’10” (1.77 m) tall.
”I would vote that emotional health plays a bigger role in how we look and feel than anything else.”
”The internet is a scary place, and it honestly makes me feel worlds better to be able to spread positivity.”
”Post-workout meals don’t need to be insanely complicated.”
”Just a reminder: At the end of the day, the monounsaturated fats still have the bulk of the science in their favor.”
”Autophagy is some awesome stuff. Heck, a Nobel prize was awarded in the world of autophagy research, but it’s not something that only occurs when you’re fasting.”

Active Recovery. Probably one of the most undervalued aspects of training. . Hiking, walking, rolling, MOVING. . . Traditional fitness isn’t a thing anymore. Functional Fitness isn’t a thing either. Now, it’s about life. . . I’d much rather spend my time outdoors with my family then focusing on how many hours I can spend in a gym. . . I’m sure there are people out there that are still motivated by gym culture. But for my family and I…. we just want to live in the most optimized way possible. . #fitfam #keto #fasting #family #california
“I’m honored to lock arms with New U Life in this exciting partnership to help change how the world looks at food and health forever.”
