The RULES of getting leaner

The RULES of getting leaner

Do you ever feel like you aren't getting leaner or stronger?

This can be really frustrating when you're sticking to your diet AND going to the gym too!

why do some people get good results from eating well and training hard, yet others flat out fail?

THE MIND TENDS TO SHOW YOU NEGATIVE THINGS FIRST

I guess this is a survival mechanism in the brain, the 'chimp brain' - which is always looking for danger. Emotional or physical.

Over millennia, rather than deluding ourselves with positivity, negativity kept us safe.

"should we go into that dark cave? It looks scary. It might have a bear inside"

Problem is, how your chimp brain 'feels' your results are going is NOT a good way of gauging progress on a fitness plan.

Here's an example…

MAN IS NOTHING ELSE BUT WHAT HE MAKES OF HIMSELF - Jean Paul Satre

The way you look and feel is a side effect of how you live your life.

For many people, it's easy to review whether you need to change directions in life or not.

Simply look in the mirror and ask, “am I happy with the way my body looks?”

Or, “am I living as my best self?”

This will give easy (if quite painful!) indicators of whether or not a new life strategy is needed.

It’s not enough to simply try to “eat better” or “stop eating crap”

You’ve tried that and it didn’t work!

In my experience, when somebody improves all areas of their life, it’s much easier to eat right, train hard, sleep well and feel great.

We all get stuck in a rut.

In fact, I believe the way we live our lives is broken.

People in the UK spend less than 2 hours of their day outside

The average british citizen will spend 47 years working, probably in a job they hate

The fitness media does a terrible job of separating facts from fiction.

And so try as we do, after doing a diet 95% of us will regain the fat lost within 3 yrs.

Eat on the go and stay healthy: PART ONE

When we eat on the go we tend to eat crap. We know eating junk is bad but we still do it!

This is a massive obstacle to being a healthy, strong and happy human.

So let’s talk about why this happens and how to fix it.

Stressed & Sleeping Poorly? You’re not alone

Stressed & Sleeping Poorly? You’re not alone

I believe there's an epidemic sneaking up on us...



I see hundreds of people each year walk into my gym (not bullshit marketing hype here, I actually do as a head coach of a decent sized gym)...



....and it's time to talk straight.



YOU are struggling.



Stop hiding it.



Stop ignoring it.



You have no identity or life of your own.

Why we eat crap on the go

Why we eat crap on the go

Our body responds to modern stress just like it responded to the old sabre-toothed tiger: fight or flight. 

In preparation for a fight, or a flight, our body releases cortisol and adrenaline

This stimulates a variety of physical symptoms like faster heart rate, slowed digestion, shaking, flushed face etc. 

The problem is, we are not in great danger in modern life!
