Where to start?

The ultimate paralyzing question

But very necessary

What do you care about?

What do you want to create community around?

Is it being done?

Is it being done generously and with intent?

It all starts with a question seemingly easy but not really if we look within

“What is the change we seek to make?” And for WHO?

In my life, and in my career I have been part of cash poor startups that soared and part of highly capitalized brands that cannot get out of their own way.

I have seen amazing innovation stifled by egos

I have seen growth mindset in action

What is common amongst winners

1. Ability to see a goal

2. Starting ( as Steve Jobs famously stated ” Real Artists ship”)

3. Knowing exactly who it is for( because you can never have them all)

4. Knowing what the change they seek to create is

5. Thick skin for Haters because everyone has this to overcome to do the bad work that eventually leads to the good and sometimes, Great work

It is always about taking and putting on your plate only what you can finish.

It also comes down to maximizing connections

As I start out to do the work of creating the T2 experiment the change I seek to create is to create consciously connected people seeking something more

Within that is the passionate mission to enlighten a healthy ketogenic lifestyle and truly alter & optimize each one of us

This I promise will be fun

Whatever it takes

Today
I call on inspiration from recently deceased Icon Rich Piana
5% is a attitude
5% is a way of life
5% is Not Ubiquitous
5% is really important to it’s INTENDED
5% HAS THE GUTS TO EXCLUDE THE MANY

LET ME SAY

ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR SIGHTS ON
ANYTHING THAT IS WORTHY OF YOUR EFFORT
IS WORTH ALL OF YOUR EFFORT AND THEN MORE

GUESS WHAT???

THAT MEANS NO SAFETY NET
THAT MEANS RISK
THAT MEANS THIS MIGHT NOT WORK
THAT MEANS THEY MAY LAUGH AT YOU
THAT MEANS YOU NEED TO BE REALLY SPECIFIC

IN THE END WHO WANTS TO BE NORMAL?

I NEVER HAVE
I HOPE I NEVER WILL

GOD BLESS YOU RICH P.
FORZA 5%
Not the brand

THE MINDSET

Enroll together

en·roll·ment inˈrōlmənt,enˈrōlmənt/

noun the action of enrolling or being enrolled.”

What is it that you really wish to stand for? To be defined by? What drives you?

Now within those answers WHO? ( time to get really specific , really granular)

When you get this far it should Inspire you- does it?

There isn’t a wrong answer except the answers you’ve been giving

Possibly to fit in?

Possibly to shift focus from our self?

Possibly because we’ve been brought to believe fitting in is Safe?

It isn’t

Honestly never was

Average PRODUCTS

For

Average PEOPLE

i.e. MASS isn’t so warm and fuzzy anymore

So let’s all circle back together and complete this in the comments

I will join you

Lets percolate on it

And always remember that it’s about the SMALLEST AUDIENCE – START THERE

if it’s media

Then you maybe do not have a sound and video studio

Hmmm

So FaceTime someone on your topic

Or

Zoom room 2 people

Or Skype

See where I’m going,?

Let’s start daily ACTION

Let’s jump in!

Boom let’s go go go

I cannot wait to reply to the awesomeness I’m certain I will be in awe of.

read the “Signs”

we are bombarded with noise

we are connected 24/7/365

heaven forbid the call goes to voicemail

we tremble like a addict at the possibility of new emails to “refresh”

we Snap

we “check in”

we text

we enable notifications

its a wonder we “Create” at all

honestly it is a prison

maybe some can handle the overload

many cannot

I cannot

Unplug, talk Less, check email daily (as in 1 -2xday),turn Off notifications, send calls to voicemail

get OUTSIDE MY HEAD

CREATE

DO

MAKE SOMETHING THAT MATTERS

for me and many others its the step that needs to occur

the #Matrix was not a movie, it is a Documentary…

 

SIMPLICITY (Program Phase I)

“When the intensity of an exercise is increased, the amount of exercise must be reduced. When you train harder, you must train less” Arthur Jones

“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.” Bruce Lee


glass-of-water

 

I have completed the initial detoxification & Cleansing portion of my Simplicity program.

I extended the Strictest portion of my reset

4 days completed …

First 48 hours:Water Fasting with prior listed Supplement protocol

Followed by Intermittent Fasting (Keto) Days 3,4,5(6) at a 23:1 with the 1 being one solid Ketogenic meal

The biggest misconception I have personally encountered is that it is not the simple elimination of the entire Carbohydrate macronutrient from ones diet that amplifies Ketosis, rather for me it is the Fasting protocol used strategically.

What instead I practice is this first week “reset”

I find that for me and I suspect many others, eating is more habitual and emotional than we realize.

Resetting my eating patterns involves the initial strict fasting followed by sunday ( day 7) moving to a more manageable Intermittent 18/6 (18 hours fasting/6 hours Keto eating).

Key points I am certain I respect in my diet

  1. Macro Ratio- the highest Protein gets in my consumption is 25% (often staying at 20% to prevent

Gluconeogenesis (abbreviated GNG) is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate carbon substrates such as lactate, glycerol, and glucogenic amino acids.

Its counter what industry marketing will tell you since it more than likely means Less in Protein supplement purchases.

One thing I believe very strongly in especially with a strategy such as my “Simplicity” approach is use of the Best whole Food selections possible.

#FoodFirst

At this point in the program I will remain Keto simply because it “works for me” however benefits of balanced Intermittent Fasting are also very well supported. I recommend :

Warrior Diet

This is a great book by a exceptional Gentleman who “Walks the walk” Ori was my first taste of a Intermittent Diet, long before it became the “thing to do”.

Dr. Mercola Intermittent Fasting

Probably much closer to my Ketogenic approach. Dr.Mercola is a true industry Advocate I has the letters to validate it.

Dom D’Agostino (Keto and Fasting) Tim Ferriss Show

Tim is the absolute best in the podcast world and his popularity validates it. Dom D’Agostino is the leading authority in the world of Ketogenic Science , Performance and Longevity. This is a absolute listen! Pure GOLD!

I will write in upcoming postings about the Phase II (18:6) Portion of my program.

I will cover the disruptive “Refreed” Debauchery mindset of enduring Pain to afford Gluttony.

From a Philosophical perspective this makes absolutely no sense. It is a Instagram sensation to be ultra “On track” all week and go Gluttony 100% +++ on a EVERY WEEKEND..I will dig into this…All I will say is that as the Stoics taught it is the constant movement towards #Virtue that for me automaticaly a reason not to do so.

From a very traditional Physical Culture standpoint it makes no sense because eating junk will develop cravings for more junk NOT less. Its about breaking past the point of the addiction to crappy food and make no mistake it IS #Addiction

#Sugar and #Processed foods are pinnacle just take a evening to watch

Sugar Coated Documentary

and

That Sugar Film

Don’t simply take my or anyone onlines word without empowering your own knowledge.

For me a occasional Carbohydrate meal period as needed will absolutely be incorporated however this I assure you will most times be clean Carbohydrate selections such as Baked sweet potatoes, Oats, Rice or the occasional Pizza or pasta ( after all I am Italiano).

Training for me will be a detailed post this week on its on that will lay out the “hybrid” approach that has proven very productive for me.

It is a Multi faceted approach I use

  1. Total Body HIT Training ( 8 exercises maximum) warmups then 1 set to momentary muscular failure

I am a disciple of the Arthur Jones approach and have seen tremendous benefits especially training in a fasting or Intermittent Fasting state.

2.Functional Whole Body training- Brief, HIT

I alternate training every other day and rotate between “Gym” days of Total Body HIT and Home/Outdoor Functional HIT

** I also use Off days as active recovery- there truly should not be OFF Days…

Mobility WOD

Kelly Starrett is a must in keeping you- The Machina running TOP FORM!

So in wrapping up this edition of SIMPLICITY….

I feel the same with this subject as I do with “refeed” approaches.

If you LOVE IT you WANT TO DO IT!  #HUSTLE #OUTWORKEVERYONE #NOOFFDAYS #REFEEDFORWEAK

I cannot stress enough that you should always be cleared by your practitioner prior to engaging in any strenuous  exercise..

please send me your questions, comments,I really look forward to them..
