In this REDUX show I talk about Why abs DON’T start in the kitchen, YOU Get Abs from MOVEMENT!
In this episode you’ll learn about… Why abs DON’T start in the kitchen, YOU Get Abs from MOVEMENT, plus…
There are so many people that ask me about fitness, nutrition and how I look the way I do. It’s a conversation that almost always comes up. It’s usually after they get a little comfortable with me and realize that I’m happy to chat about whatever.
Then they feel the need to let me know that they know what they are doing.
And you know what… they almost all think they know what they are talking about. Or at least (for some reason) they want me to think that.
Well, I’m tired of it all. If you really knew what to do… and knew how easy it was… you’d freaking do it. Just stop lying to yourself!
Or maybe you do know what you’re doing but don’t have the discipline to do it. Then we’d need to talk about habits and how you are the 5 people that you spend time around most.
Here are some common things that I hear:
– I just eat too many carbs for my abs to look like yours
– I like carbs too much to do what you do.
– It’s all about diet, I know this. But I’m not disciplined enough.
– I did Keto and it worked, but I stopped.
– I don’t have time for eating right.
– I don’t have time to workout.
– I’m too old to be in shape like that.
– Just wait until your metabolism slows down.
– When you hit 40 it all changes.
– When you hit 50 it all changes.
– I can’t do that because my knees hurt.
I’m hoping that if you’re one of the people that says this to yourself that you’re feeling really uncomfortable right now.
And I hope this is about to feel like a slap across your face! Because you don’t know what you’re talking about!
So stop acting like you do. Just stop trying to be right. I get it, we don’t like to feel like we don’t know what we are talking about.
But here’s the deal, just because you read about the Slow Carb Diet, or tried Keto, or tried CrossFit doesn’t mean anything.
I’ve been coaching people for 20+ years now, and I know very few people that actually know the whole picture. And even fewer who know what they are talking about and actually do what they know. It’s mind boggling to me!
Here’s the deal…
If you have an excuse for any of these things, you don’t have anything figured out.
But, the good news is that it’s actually a pretty simple process once you stop trying to think that you know everything.
Here’s the easy process.
1. Stop thinking you have the answer. Sometimes things work and sometimes they don’t, and sometimes they even change. Try things and note what works, and change when it doesn’t, but never stop or give up.
2. You get abs from movement, not from food. You need to challenge your body in some way regularly. I get it, you might be uncomfortable with this, or scared of getting injured (I hear it all the time), but you need to get over that and move.
3. Once you have the routine/habit of moving your body regularly, then and only then does this notion of the diet being 70-80% of the equation come into play.
Let’s make it super easy.
– You get abs from movement, so train your body long and slow (30-60 mins), fast and explosive, and everything in-between. Keeping your body needing to adapt is the key. You don’t have to blast yourself into super soreness.
– Figure out how to lightly track what you’re eating. 40% carb, 30% fats, 30% proteins.
– Eat non package, non processed, grass fed, green leafy, ORGANIC (if you can afford it) real foods 6 days a week. Give yourself a cheat day if you eat well for 6 days straight.
