Life is busy.
For example, I’m in school or traveling to school 6 hours
a day and I have 3 businesses to work in / on AND I have
a 3-yr old and a 5-month old.
So I’m pretty swamped.
That’s enough for me for right now.
I’m sure that’s nothing compared to what you may have on
There’s an inverse proportion between your stress levels
and the complexity of your workouts and your nutrition.
If you have time and an iron will then something complex
like “Kettlebell Burn EXTREME!” – a rapid fat loss program
will work great for you.
If you’re pinched for time, then you really should just take it
easy and focus on a couple of “big rocks” – The Big Rock
Which ones are the Big Rocks?
Big Rock #1: Nutrition.
If you want to get lean and stay lean, you just can’t go wrong
with this very simple template:
Meat, green veggies, berries.
And every once in awhile, have your favorite meal.
It’s that simple.
Big Rock #2: Strength.
I think it was my friend Brett Jones who said “strength is the

You can get better conditioned.
You can work harder, longer, more frequently, which of course

Don’t dismiss the simplicity of this template.
I’ve been using this and minor variations of for my entire

- 80% + of your results come from nutrition
– 10-15% of your results come from your strength training
– 5% of your results come from any sort of “cardio” or
So you can keep neglecting your “diet” – pretending it doesn’t
really matter and doing your one million swings or you can
use the template I just provided you.
You might be wondering right now –
“This sounds completely counter to everything I ever thought
I knew – will it really work?”
Check out what Jeff Davies said:
And I don’t even know what he did with his diet!
The point is, you don’t have to do something “EXTREME!”
to really notice measurable results. They probably won’t
be “rapid” but they will be there.
You just need to know which rocks to move.
