Listen up man (or girl)

1. You can keep getting information overloaded regarding the details that produces less than 10% of real world results, or you can focus on the one, simple step that produces 90% of results.

2. You can focus on all the crap and miracle cures and easier ways that are being sold to you, or you can focus on the one free step that is guaranteed to produce results.

3. You can keep reading health blurbs for entertainment purposes or to make you “feel” like you are doing something good for your health and fat loss goals, or you can actually get out there and DO something about them.

4. You can keep spinning your wheels with fluff, or you can toughen up and get some shit done with the cold, hard TRUTH.

    I was reading this last night (from the Lone Samurai about Miyamoto Musashi), and it reminded me of today’s state of the fitness industry: “Musashi’s contention was that many of the martial arts schools taught useless, showy techniques, He declared that if students relied on such techniques, it would be the same as fighting only to die with attractive form but without victory…While other schools look good to the eye, none of them contains the heart of Truth.

    Haha, its simple, life is simple, it is we who overcomplicate it. Congrats on the progress man, keep at it.

    Thank you for such a spot-on post, Master Miyaki! I couldn’t agree more. For a society that is so fixated on “convenience” people sure do go to extreme lengths to *avoid* doing the most simplest of actions that will reap the greatest rewards…go figure…

    My thoughts exactly. I’ve read Mark Sisson’s book as well as yours and they basically boil down to “stop eating shit.” I’m a 5’5″ male and went from almost 180 lbs to 150 lbs. Plateaued pretty badly but I think this is just where my body wants me to be. But it really is 90% diet. I haven’t worked out in a few months but I’ve managed to keep myself at the same place. Honestly, it tough at first to stop eating shit, but I did it in steps and not cold turkey. Maybe that’s people’s problem? They try to do too much all at once. Anyway, great post, love the site and the books. Keep ’em coming!
