Good Nutrition Is Simple Math – Pretty Much

I was thinkin’ bout this lately.

Good health is ‘bout subtraction.

When I started to switch up my diet in December ‘16, I started takin’ away whole of crappy foods.

I cut Mcdonald’s.

Milkshakes.

French Fries.

Doughnuts.

All gone.

Cut, cut, cut.

And added only a couple things – like kombucha and carrot juice and eggs.

But that’s ‘bout it. My diet is pretty simple.

I think in the modern world a lot of people are confused cause there are so many choices to choose from.

Roam through the halls of your favorite grocery store, there are a bunch different items, different brands.

What do you pick?

Which ones are good?

I say – keep it simple.

Only get a couple things – eggs, kombucha, ground beef or steak. This keeps your diet super easy and you don’t have to think much.

When I go to the grocery store, I know exactly what I want. And you know how I did it?

Simple Math.

Subtraction, not addition.

Why Are You Treatin’ Your Body Like Crap?

I stopped shovin’ crap into my body, mostly.

I hardly eat Mcdoubles (last time I had it – it made me sick).

I used to be the super immature, highly hyperactive milkshake king. But that made me super sick as well.

The only crap I eat is pizza. And that hardly happens. Mostly on the weekends – at work.

Instead, I mostly eat Greek food . Drain kombucha. Carrot juice. Eggs. Water. Ground Beef. Coffee. Butter.

Makin’ my nutrition extremely basic, easy, an’ simple. Which I’m always workin’ on.

Why?

Cause I treat my body like Roll Royce car.

 A well – oiled machine.

Nutrition is my number one craft. And obsession. Beside persuasion, writin’ and other stuff I have yet to get to on this blog (I’ll get to it soon).

Rolls Royce cars are beautiful, handcrafted, high priced. Pure luxury.

People treasure luxury brands.

They love their Louis Vuttons, Chanel, Tom Ford an’ all the other name brand luxury items. And when they get ‘em, they treat ‘em with the utmost care.

Hell, people used to get robbed for Apple iPhones an’ Air Jordans.

Why?

Cause items of status are serious bizness.  

So, the way that people treat luxury items is the way I treat my body.

I maintain it daily. Weekly. Monthly. Yearly.

I don’t slack off with my body. Everything in my life starts with my body.

Health an’ Fitness is the super turbo engine that keeps me freakin’ goin’.

Especially since I have a physical disability – that gives me more incentive to stay in tip – top shape.

So, that’s what recommend you do – treat your body like a Roll Royce.

Manage an’ maintain it. It’ll treat you well.

Also – follow me on Twitter because Rolls Royce cars are freakin’ nice.

Have a Physical Disability? Yes? Then, Workout Like This!

I’ve been workin’ out for a long, long time. Since I was 14 – to be exact.

And I feel like I’ve tried everything.

Dumbbells. Barbells. Machines. Push ups. Sit ups. Olympic lifts. 

Anything you can think of – I probably done it.

I also follow a lot of fitness magazines and stuff like that.

And what I’ve noticed that a lot of fitness guys always have rules.

You can’t do this. You can’t do that.

Well, I’ve found that some rules I gotta break, cause of my physical disability.

The biggest rule I’ve broken for the last three years has been no machines.

This the biggest bro fitness thing ever.

Only do barbells.

Only do dumbbells.

It’s cheatin’.

You’re not usin’ your “stabilizer muscles.

I say – forget that – use machines. A lot.

I do.

And got a few of benefits from usin’ it –

  1. For one thing, I’m way more muscular. For some reason, I look buffer after usin’ the Hammer Strength Chest Press.
  2. I feel safer. There’s a few times where I was ego liftin’ with dumbbells. And had a couple of scares. Machines take care of that.
  3. Way more isolation on the weak side of your body. If you have a physical disability on a certain part of your body – chances are it’s really weak. And by usin’ isolation exercises like Hammer Strength Pulldown machines, you get to strengthen your weak side of body – fairly easily.

I swear – usin’ machines has changed the game for me.

Before, my workouts used to be centered around dumbbells and barbells – which are cool.

But if you have physical disability, you’re at an unfair disadvantage.

And by dissin’ the fitness bros, and usin’ machines to build your strength and muscularity – it will level the playin the field between you and other people.

So, try out some machines.

They’re awesome…

… Also follow me on Twitter because machines are dope.

What Does Customer Service Mean To You?

I’ve been workin’ customer service jobs since I was in high school.

Since 14, I believe.

I’ve done whole lot too.

Worked in public schools, retail, offices, parks, recreation centers, bars/ restaurants, theaters.

Cleaned up facilities. Sold stuff (B2C). Cold called folks.

Promotional stuff (handin’ out flyers). Posted signage. Emailed over 500 clients a day.

Worked gruelin’ 15 hour shifts. Grindin’ it out for tips.

I work.

Super hard too.

Through all this, I’ve gained a ton of street smarts and an understandin’ of customers. And people, in general.

Besides workin’ a whole lotta jobs – I’ve also been on a bunch of job interviews. Probably over 75 in the span of 4 years. Not kiddin’ at all either.

And interviewers always ask me the question – What Does Customer Service Mean To You?

And that question should be a question that should stump you, but it’s real easy.

Customer service is problem solvin’ by bein’ as calm as possible. And doin’ it quickly as possible.  Basically, conflict resolution.

Cause problems will always happen.

Stuff will break down.

People will act crazy (cause they’re irrational and emotional).

You just act calm. And patiently address the problem.

And here’s the surprisin’ thing I’ve noticed – some customers you just can’t help. At all.

For whatever reason.

Maybe they don’t like you.

Maybe they’re too far gone, emotionally.

Maybe they wanna steal your money.

If none of your persuasive abilities work on the customer – then, sadly, that’s not the customer for you.

You can’t help every customer.

Just be nice. And find some else can help them.

Another vender. Another employee. Another store.

And, yes, you’re losin’ business.

But if you’re tryin’ to help a customer.And you’ve set rules, prices, guidelines. And they can’t meet ’em.

And you’ve tried your best to work somethin’ out – then, that’s it.

Point ’em somewhere else. To someone that can help ’em.

Just be nice ’bout it.

Gettin’ Stronger Means Tastin’ Some Pain (The Deadlift Lifestyle)

I’m extremely, extremely sore.

I’ve been walkin’ slow everywhere.

I keep rubbin’ my thighs, my hamstrings, my ankles.

Why – do I hurt?

Deadlifts.

That’s it.

Mother flippin’ deadlifts has me feelin’ like I fought a couple swordsman gorillas last night. It’s serious – really serious.

Now, even though I’m currently on my bed – ‘fraid to move – I’m really, really grateful for this soreness. It’s one of my favorite feelings ever.

It’s pretty darn addictin’.

Cause yesterday – when I was doin’ deadlifts – I knew it would leave me feelin’ like this later, but ya boy did it.

I’m addicted to the pain. To the soreness.

I don’t do drugs, so deadlifts are the only thing I’m addicted to.

I see people in the gym, not doin’ much.

Doin’ light cardio. And leavin’.

Doin’ a couple machines. And leavin’.

Takin’ breaks on the phone. Wastin’ time.

Talkin’ to friends.

Their not addicted. Not like me.

Me?

I’m focused. This is my art. My passion.

Like how Trump likes makin’ deals. It’s how he gets his kicks.

I like liftin’. It’s how I get my kicks.

Ever since I was 13, fitness was my thing.

I remember bein’ in my room watchin’ old martial art movies. Copyin’ their moves.

Hittin’ push ups. Sit ups. Planks.

Punchin’ body bags. All that stuff.

Now, 11 years later, I’m older, balder, bearder, and liftin’ up heavy barbells for high reps. And extremely sore – in slight pain.

But – you know what?

I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I really, really love tastin’ the pain.

Simple An’ Easy – The Best Way To Market Yourself

Lately, I’ve been studyin’ marketin’.  Besides my fitness/ health.

And been expertmentin’ with Twitter. And this blog to communicate my own ideas.

Also – I have a couple of acticles bout Nike and The Black Card. As well the new American President’s marketin’ methods.

Basically, to me – marketn’ is the unique way to get your message out. And with the Internet, you can get the message usin’ many, many different ways.

Twitter, blogs (wordpress, medium), Snaphat, Youtube, Linkedin are just some a few.

Social media/ Internet marketin’ has leveled the playin’ field different for biz owners, entertainers, and even amateur business like students – like me. Where we can try stuff out for free without buyin’ ad space.

So, with my understandin’ of marketin’ – I look out for really, really good marketers too. I watch super popular Youtube videos and think – why are these more popular than others?

Or.

A super viral tweet.

Or.

Trendin’ topics on Twitter. Or on Youtube.

A lot of times that leads to music videos that are really popular on Youtube.

Like this one –

It has 118 million views on Youtube. Holy Moly!

There’s also this one – that I personally like – which has 70 millions views –

Then the granddaddy of Promoters right now – DJ Khaled –

He’s clockin’ in at 107 views.

Crazy – crazy.

I also read DJ Khaled’s book – The Keys. And – I gotta say – it’s pretty funny. And it’s full of he’s lil’ catch phrases. And is extremely easy to read.

He uses words like “Keys” Fan Luv” “We the Best.

And expands on what they mean in each chapter.

Now, you might be thinkin’ – “This is stupid. DJ Khaled is a  dumb DJ. Who does nothin‘.”

But you’re wrong – have you seen him on Snapchat? Or instagram?

He’s a master marketer/ promoter.

And he’s hilarious.

Basically, what’s doin’ is spreadin’ his message through his catchphrases. Which are simple an’ easy to understand.

President Trump does this like crazy.

Simple an’ easy words stick in your head longer.

You probably can remember a whole lot of things Trump has said over the last 3 years. But not Hilary.

Simple an’ easy is reason why.

That’s how you communcate.

Simple. Short. Concise.

Hemingway knew it. Did it. And the rule still remains today.

Do it. You won’t be disappointed.

How To Have Abs All Year Round (The Extremely Easy Way)

I have abs.

Yes. I have abs. All year round too.

But I don’t make a big deal outta it. Other people do though (mostly women).

Dunno why though. Cause I feel like havin’ a strong back, chest, and legs are more interestin’ than ab definition.

But – whatever…

Here’s how I stay lean year round –

Number One – Do Push ups Every Day

This is basic a system I’ve developed a month ago. And I’ve noticed it’s really morphing my body. Making it leaner. And faster.

There’s only one rule to this system. And that’s do to at least one push up every day.

Not 20, 50, 100 or 200.

At least one.

Why?

Cause it’s low/no pressure. And teaches the body to expect a push up comin’ on that day.

This is how habits are formed.

Bodyweight exercises are excellent ways to lean, period (besides hittin’ the weights).

Push ups are the Best!

Number Two – Intermittent Fastin’, Weekly

This is another system in my broad based Health System.

This is one is extremely, extremely easy.

On my off day (Sunday) I don’t eat anything ‘cept for water, coffy, or tea for 16 hours. That’s it.

After I gorge on some Greek food. Yum.

There’s a whole bunch of writin’ on fastin’. And it’s benefits. Such as fat loss, acne reduction, mental clarity and clean up, as well anti cancer benefits too.

I’m gonna write more on my fastin’ experiences – one day. 

All I gotta say – is that if you wanna lose that lil’ pinch of stomach fat – this is the way to go.

I have crazy ab definition. And clearer skin. And my critcal thinkin’ has sky rocketed.

Fastin’ is the Second Best!

Number Three – Nutrition Tune Up

So, I have a confession to make – even though I love health and fitness – I love milkshakes, Mcdonalds an’ pizza.

Straight junk food.

And junk food is no, no good. It raises your estrogen levels – makin’ you whiny an’ emotional. That’s not a good way to live – being calm is better.

So, I’ve ditched a lot of junk food.

And replaced it with kombucha, carrot juice, an’ green shakes.

I hardly eat trash anymore.

The last couple times I did though – I was sick to my stomach.

Guess my body can’t take that stuff anymore.

Damn, oh well.

I do have way more energy nowadays. And it’s from the carrot juice. I can tell.

Combine that with coffy. And I think fast. And move fast – all day.

Gettin’ stuff done with good food in your body is the Third Best!

Abs Are Easy – For Me

Many, many, many people wanna know how to lose weight. And I feel ’em.

I was bulky (skinny fat) for a while. And basically used the stuff in this article to get lean an’ stay lean. As well as martial arts (more on that later).

But this stuff in this article is extremely easy.

Just takes some willpower.

A lil’ remindin’.

A whole lotta doin’.

You got this.

Get lean. Be lean. Stay lean.
