Intuitive eating...
People 'sell' intuitive eating as a 'natural way' to eat. But, the thing is–it's anything BUT natural. Our bodies, if left to their own devices, want you to eat as much as possible and get as fat as possible (it's the mechanism that's allowed our species to survive until now).

This is exacerbated by our food environment that doesn't want you to be lean and healthy, and the best way to combat that is to pay as much attention to food via tracking.

So, the idea that tracking isn't 'natural' or 'normal' is false and misguided.

Maybe intuitive eating was 'natural' 100-200 years ago where high-calorie, hyper-palatable foods weren't as readily available. But today? Probably not.

Statement Regarding Lenny and Larry's Complete Cookie Lawsuit
What’s interesting about this case is that for the first time in the sports nutrition industry, the lawsuit is using PDCAAS, or Protein Digestibility Amino Acid Corrected Score, as a way of determining protein quality.

Why the carbohydrate-insulin model of obesity is probably wrong: A supplementary reply to Ebbeling and Ludwig’s JAMA article
So what mechanisms do these studies report as being most intimately linked to obesity? Are they genes related to fat cell function? Insulin signaling? In fact, these studies consistently report that obesity-linked genes relate primarily to brain development and function: “[body mass index]-associated genes are mostly enriched among genes involved in neurogenesis and more generally involved in the development of the central nervous system” (25). This is consistent with the prevailing view in my field that the brain is in the driver’s seat, not insulin or the fat cell. That doesn’t mean the brain is the only thing that matters– probably a lot of things matter to some degree– but the brain appears to be the most important driver of common obesity. This is why my book is titled The Hungry Brain and not The Hungry Fat Cell.

I can’t overstate the importance of these genetic findings for evaluating hypotheses about obesity. They offer a rare and valuable, unbiased, 10,000-foot view of the mechanisms that drive excess body fat accumulation in the general population. We should be calibrating to these findings and asking ourselves hard questions if our hypotheses are inconsistent with them.

(1) LEG DAY 🔥🙌🏽 This body took me 6yrs of... - Michael Morelli Jr.
This body took me 6yrs of consistently eating the right combination of Whole Foods for my body, training (HIIT & Weights) with intent and focus 5 days per week, and supplementing with very clean products only.

72 consecutive — ALL-IN months and counting.

BIGGEST TIP — don’t overcommit, look for small wins each week in each of the pillars below.

Here’s a great simple approach to look at your fitness pillars;

1. Nutrition first — you’ll never ever train your way out of a bad diet. This is your first and most important focus, period.

2. Training second — don’t overcommit. If you’re diet is dialed then to start aim for 15-30min of HIIT style work every other day.

3. Supplements third — if you aren’t eating well, and moving more, then you have no business supplementing (unless it’s basic vitamins/minerals).

The ONLY thing that works ... is WORK.
Every millionaire in the world would have their dream physique if you could buy one.

Sorry Jack! ... you can’t even pay someone else to do it for you, it’s the one thing you can’t buy.

And sacrifices will be made, otherwise you won’t ever get close.

Who’s building their body and their health, while they build their careers?

Remember, under the hood is always first.
It should look even better underneath — a car with a great looking body and a rusty engine doesn’t go very far.
