Do Difficult Things Every Day and Triumph

Do Difficult Things Every Day.

 

This is going to be a short post, mostly because the concept can be summed up in those five words.  At a round table Q&A at our recent conference there was a question which was asked related to breaking through mental barriers – how do you do it.  The truth is I wish I had a better answer for the inquirer than I did at the time, but it did give me something to think about the entire next day.  What is it about some people who seem to “smash it”…

The Dumb Side of SMART Goals

This post is a rant.

I’ll clearly own and admit that it is.  I love SMART goals as they pertain to business, professional, and personal goals related to project management, task completion, and the like.  Here’s where I rebel.  I coach a number of clients – both in group setting and as a private coach.  Much of our work is both mental and physical.  Anyone with a core competency in training can make you stronger – I want to make you more resilient and improve your mental fortitude at the same time.  And therein lies my issue.  At…

Micronutrients Made Simple

There are a number of reasons that you may not be performing optimally – you may not be eating sufficient amounts of calories (be they protein, fat, or carbohydrate) for performance and recovery, you may not be getting adequate rest, you could be under a great deal of stress; it’s also possible that all three of those examples are just fine, but your diet is garbage and you forgot about micronutrients.

 

One of my criticisms of the IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) movement (at least what it “became,” perhaps not what it was intended to be)…

Life Change – The Cost of Investment

Life Change, of course, is not easy. I grew up in a Southern Baptist church.  I still attend regularly.  One of the interesting things that I saw growing up was that every time a Summer Revival week would come around was that the same handful of people in the church who had felt they were somehow out of touch with God would want to “rededicate their life.”  While I appreciate the spiritual significance of this, and I don’t at all want to demean their choice, I found my inner cynic saying, “So if the first four times didn’t create lasting…

The Two Fears that Sabotage Change

 

It’s become a recurring thought in my head about how to share with people who have a long journey of self- Change ahead of them something that I’ve learned from 9 years trying to become the person I want to be.  How do you take all of the successes, all of the struggles, and all of the questions that bounce around in your head and condense it down into something that both resonates with people and also encourages them to recognize what is ahead and how to deal with the challenges that will come?  I was reminded of something…

gluconeogenesis is not steak to cake says ketogains

Gluconeogenesis – The worst name for a rock band ever

At least three times a week I am engaged either in the Facebook group or other places asking questions that generally go like this:  “At what point do I eat too much protein and go into gluconeogenesis ?”  So I wanted to provide a more thought out answer, so here goes.

I should add that my commentary here is largely to be filtered through the lens of T1 diabetes…if you’re T1 diabetic, the regulatory feedback mechanisms are endogenously broken (the pancreas isn’t producing insulin), and must be regulated exogenously (the injection of insulin).

What is gluconeogenesis?  Read more

Golden crown on blank card about context being king

Ketogains – Ketogenic Diets in #context – Part 1

During our first Ketogains summit on ketogenic lifestyle we had some great ketnotes Tyler Cartwright explains the basics of a Ketogenic diet, in CONTEXT. This is part one of the session. Check part two here

 

There are various definitions and lines of thought on what a Ketogenic Diet is. 75% Fat? 90% Fat? 100% Fat? Let us not complicate things:

“A Ketogenic Diet is one in which a diet is sufficiently low in carbohydrates to cause the body to produce ketones”

There is no “true” ketogenic diet – A ketogenic diet is #context dependent of your goals, body fat…
