Im getting married tomorrow. Im certainly capable of doing this. I have no doubt in my mind that Francesca is as good a woman as there is out there. I say this unequivically, and without doubt.
When I ask what I am capable of, I mean to ask, what am I capable of achieving with my mind. This is a resounding statement that I think all men should be asking themselves about at some point in their life, and I feel fortunate that I am asking it now instead of waiting until I’m 45 or 50. Im 26 now.
I have started my own business and put my name on it. Although the actual name of the business may change at any point, and likely will, its my creation to mould and take responsibility for. Because of this I refuse to accept alternatives. I refuse to comprimise my morals and values, and I refuse to trade judgement and independent thought for “security” or “the well being of the greater good” and I am asked to on a continual basis.
Several months ago I was asked if I could put together exercise and nutritional programs for people in a clear and concise way. My answer was “I have no doubt that I can put together the programs you’ve asked for, and bet my life and reputation on it.” Or something to that effect. I can and do bet my life on it, as these are the same programs that I follow myself.
When it came to the attention of the people that asked this of me that I was perscribing nutritional programs high in animal products and fat, I was questioned as to my methods and reasons and after defending my position was rewarded by changing the minds of the people who thought the program wouldnt anyone lose much in the way of body fat. More recently Ive encountered a different, but similarly puzzling problem. These people have now asked me if I know how to create programs that will help people gain weight. The paradox, as confusing as it seems, is actually a matter of the same philosophical mistake. How can a diet work to help one lose and gain weight?
The initial assumption these people had was that I perscribe a “low-carb” diet. Although the diet I adhere to and give away free of charge to the clients that I have is a fairly low-carb diet, its predicated more on the OPTIMAL ratios of nutrients in the diet.
I was asked, “how can you build muscle on a low-carb diet?” and my reply was “carbohydrates are not used as structural components in the body. they are an energy substrate and as such are used for energy production.” The implication being that carbs arent required for building anything. Which they are not.
I want to conduct an experiment on my self and I’m gonna do it starting Monday September 24th, 2012. Follow a modified Whole30, exercise 2-3 x per week utilizing a twice weekly weight training regime and HIIT once a week, cold exposure, and sleeping and walking in biologically appropriate amounts. It will be done. And here are my whole 30 rules:
1) Eat meat, eggs and veggies, some fruits, a few nuts and organic dairy fats. NOTHING ELSE!!!
2) Eat 2-3 meals per day with zero snacking. None.
3) Take 15min cold showers 3x per week, drink 1-2 gallons of cold water per day.
4) Follow a two-way split training program emphisizing compound movements and high intensity cardio.
5) Sleep 8 hours per night.
And anothers goal I have is to pick up atleast 5 more clients before the end of October.
Now, lets see what I’m capable of.
