Timestamped Show Notes:

00:30 – Introduction

10:30 – I’ve actually played around with different processes, I’ve done dehydrate, like, basically hydrated than dehydrated down to the time of my show. It’s been so tight that I’ve tried to lick the water off my toothbrush on that Friday before the show. I know that there are ways of not cutting your water, like this last show, that I did it for.

20:00 – If you actually know what your body fat percent is, that will also play into getting that number into you. A lot of the times I’ll find that people are not as active, they’re not as conditioned. That’s a big key in deciding where your calories are, the more conditioned you are changes that process.

27:30 – So let’s talk about the muscle, if you don’t strength train your muscles, it’s just like going you’re not using it. It’s going to slowly decrease in strength in size. So it’s a muscle that changes size. So the bigger it is, the stronger can be the more blood flow to the to the muscle you get and that it’s hungry. So if you look at my body fat and my muscle, it is a certain percent. You can take somebody else with the same weight, but just a different composition, and maybe they have less muscle mass. I will require more calories, because my I have more muscle to feed. So if you just kind of let that go, you’ll see, like my own BMR is so low. I don’t want to just eat 1200 calories. If you get to increase your muscle size, you’ll also see a correlation with your BMR to go like going up very nice.

38:00 – I’m putting out another book. Actually, my nine year old daughter’s gonna help me write it because I want to help parents with their kids nutrition. She’s nine and she’s very passionate about writing, and eating healthy. All of my kids are but they’re still kids. But you know, we’re still teaching them to look at the labels that you need to know.

55:00 – Digging in to shopping tips and nutrition as we close out the show.

01:03:55 – Final Words Shown Below…


Our Final Words of the Show:

I talk about act as if… , and you need to finish that act as if, you know, I was put into a couple of different situations where I didn’t think I didn’t want to land there. But I was there and now I had two decisions I either needed to just kind of feel bad for myself and just kind of like, alright, just throw in the towel, or I need to act as if I know what I’m doing and just get out. That was my point of acting as if we’re going to be in situations where you feel unfit. You’re going to be in a situation where you don’t feel like you’re fit enough to start eating healthy. Or you’re not in the right spot to start taking care of yourself or even to just do some activity. You’ll always feel that way. There’s not going to be a perfect time but you need to act as if that you give a damn, you’re going to need to act as if you can do it. Even though you might not be able to, and that’s my biggest message. It is if you start acting, you’ll start believing, you’ll start doing, and then you’ll be able to celebrate all your accomplishments.
