Michael, you are consistently hitting topics I care about in the perfect moment. I am on day 8 of 11 on the road. I brought my ruck and have kept on schedule for it and yoga for the other days. I’m doing my level best to not eat like an idiot. I have my AG1 and protein shakes in the fridge. Being reasonably good on the road isn’t easy. Thanks for making it easier.

This is great stuff, too much is too much and too little is too little. Definitely some excellent information for people who live in the real world. I think my diet and exercise plan has worked so well for me because it is a sort of avoidance. I avoid eating bad food/too many carbs, and being sedentary for too long. People seem to find it difficult to avoid eating badly, but if you just stick to eating whole foods and change your mindset to one of "I don't eat fast food" (or at least dont eat too much too often). I avoid social situations that revolve around eating and drinking the wrong foods and plan ahead (eat beforehand workout in the morning), and instead prioritize social events that revolve around fitness.

Loved the article and turned around and bought Adam’s book. Having recently lost a lot of weight I am trying to recalibrate my brain that is okay to have that cookie or piece of pizza. Your article are always so relatable for where I am in life atm.

I discovered this crazy 2% cult because of the Pump Club newsletter, which I highly recommend. This is all wonderfully full circle now!

I needed to read this. Consistency over time is more effective than occasional huge efforts.
