Tame the nutrition, tame the performance
“How can I get shredded while performing at the highest level?” asked the little prince.
“One only understands the things that one tames” said the fox. “Men have no more time to understand anything”
“But what must I do to get a sixpack?” asked the little prince. The little prince never let go of a question, once he had asked it.
“You must be very patient” replied the fox.
“You must stop trying the methods while ignoring the principles. As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. Otherwise you are sure to have trouble.”
so here, have my secrets
#1 Quality first
I eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. I keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. And no matter what the guru says, protein with a face, a mother, and soul is the way to go if I want to reach optimal health and performance.
#2 purpose second
I eat for what I am going to do next, not for what has already happened.
meat and vegetables
for rest & recovery
nuts and seeds
for cognitive performance
fruit and starch
for physical performance
There you have it folks. No magic pill, no secret shortcut.
