My book, Grow Your Mind, Shrink Your Waist is designed to open up the floodgates of your mind. Your success in weight loss and fitness absolutely depends on the way you see things. Where some people see problems, you need to be able to see the opportunity.
If you have the mind of an overweight person, you'll need to adjust that and grow into the mind of a thinner person. If you maintain your overweight mind, even if you achieve some level of success in your fitness, you'll find yourself backsliding to what your mind knows: how to be out of shape.

How can you change the way you see things?
By following three key steps in the growth loop: LEARN, TAKE ACTION, and KNOW WHY.
Learning is essential to getting you to a new place. In the United States, higher education has never been more widespread. The concept of equipping yourself with more knowledge as a way to perform better at work is...

Ketones can also cause major problems if their concentration gets too high. It's a bit complicated, and there are plenty of strong opinions around it. A simple way to think of it is: strict Atkins diet that is rather unforgiving of slip ups - it can take anywhere from two to seven days to get back into ketosis.
There is one major consideration that you need to bear in mind if this is the life you want to live: is the ketogenic diet the forever answer?
For a few people, it is the forever answer (notably, those with epilepsy). For most people, cake on...
I've been in the fitness industry for almost six years now. One thing I'm good at is picking up on patterns and noticing some of the finer points of what is happening. One thing that I've noticed, and that is one of my biggest frustrations as a trainer, is the mindset that people have when it comes to health, fitness, and nutrition.

In the day to day interactions with my clients I get to see a lot of their struggles up close. And it's during those struggles that I get a glimpse into their internal state, how the mind is working. Where I see people get caught up the most is when they encounter failure. A recipe turned out bad, they gained over the weekend, or they had a family or professional crisis that derailed them. These situations are not uncommon. What...
