The KISS Principle
How I apply it to mindset, fitness and nutrition
When I say "the KISS principle," we likely all think of the same thing...welp, here's my KISS Principle, and one that is way more fun!
You see - achieving ANYTHING when it comes to our health, fitness and nutrition all boils down to focusing on a few simple habits, but doing them consistently - designing them with sustainability in mind.
It's very easy to go on a crash diet and drop 15-pounds in 1 month...but have you noticed that the second you're "off the diet" the weight stacks back on?
That's because nothing you were doing was sustainable in keeping the weight off. Plus, you probably hated your life.
The most efficient and effective lifts are the simplest ones: squats, lunges, bench press, rows, deadlifts.
If you want to get stronger, that's it. Those are the only lifts you must do.
The best form of movement?
Walking. Yep. You've heard it here first.
Step one foot in front of the other. Repeat. Simple.
The best nutrition advice I've ever heard?
"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." - Michael Pollan
If I could add ONE thing to that advice I would say "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Every Day."
The best way to achieve any goal is to outline a few simple, yet key behaviors, and executing on them every single day. And it's sooooo easy to try and add complexity or difficulty. In fact, the health & fitness industry has become a $32 billion industry based off of this.
But we're smarter than that right??
Simplicity sells...complexity fails (that almost rhymed!!!)
So here's the deal party people
If you have health, nutrition & fitness goals,
yet you're not achieving them,
I want you to take a good hard look at your plan.
Chances are, you're making it way too complex and unsustainable than it needs to be.
I invite you to take a cold, hard look at your life, habits and behaviors - is there anywhere you could simplify? And if the answer is yes - please comment how you will apply the KISS Principle to your life!
