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.

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.

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.

The Power of Liftin’ Weights

Few things give me confidence in my life.

And I’ve tried a whole lotta things that have given me confidence like …

Improv Comedy/ Acting.

Public Speaking.

Writing daily in my Journal.

Doing martial arts.

Game.

And promotions (handing out flyers).

But you’ve never felt any real power – real confidence – til’ you’ve lived the fitness lifestyle.

Lifting weights at the gym lowers my stress, strengthens my weak body, and gives me strong mental clarity. Makes me feel like I can fight lions.

And it doesn’t take me much time either.

I lift for an hour or so. Don’t spend all day in there.

Why?

Cause that’s all you need.

Get in. Get out.

Lift hard. Intensely. Confidently.

Workouts should be centered around compound movements.

Bench Press.

Squats.

Deadlifts.

Do some light cardio, but most of your time should be focused on the weights.

It builds inner + outer strength.

But – be careful!

Strength trainin’ is a drug.

It’s addictin’. An obsession.

Besides persuasion.

It’s the only drug I’ll ever endorse.

It’s somethin’ I love to do. And highly recommend you do it too.

Feel the Power. Be the Power.

Take Care of Your Health – It’s All You Got

So, I have physical disability. And – of course – it sucks.

And I can be negative bout it, but using mindset techniques, I can use positive reframin’ techniques to keep my head up.

If it wasn’t for those techniques, I never would have made 300 bucks this past Saint Paddy’s Day.

Despite those techniques, havin’ odd motor control with your body can be pretty defeatin’. And it makes interactions with people not too fun. Like – for example – job interviews can be sucky, cause of my fidgeting.

Nevertheless, I charge through life trying to persuade an’ sell the best way I possibly can.

But the weird thing is that regular people don’t have these kinda thoughts bout self improvement, I believe.

They don’t care anything – self improvement wise.

Stuff like persuasion, biz, branding, mindset, and worse of all – their health.

You know ’em. You see ’em.

The type of guys an’ girls that munch on McDonald’s for years. Then get uber big. And then complain bout their problems.

And self – improvers – like me – have to reframe them into a positive mindset. On the daily. It can be exhausting…

… Imma be honest – if you’re reading this and don’t have major health issues – cherish your health.

Treat your health like a puppy.

In fact – treat your body like a luxury car. Like a rolls royce.

Cherish it. I do.

And don’t feed it crap.

Cause it’s the only one you’ve got.
