Oh I know we all admit that we are intelligent beings; yet, I wonder how many of us have gone through some sort of self-inquiries and/or self-examining of all these ready-made facts or truths that are crammed down our throats ever since we acquired the capacity and the sensibility to learn…Read all kinds of books of man — the central themes, the styles, the advantages, the disadvantages…self-education makes great men – Bruce Lee
I. BOOKS BY NATE MIYAKI
Most weight loss diets are doomed to fail from the beginning because they go completely against our evolutionary history, natural instincts, and modern social patterns. The truth is we are meant to eat BIG at night. We are not meant to starve on lettuce leaves and protein shakes, going to bed wanting to gnaw off our significant other’s arm, or with visions of cookies and cupcakes dancing in our heads.
The fitness tradition of eating 6 small meals a day and cutting calories and carbohydrates at night is one of the most difficult, impractical, and miserable ways to diet. It is based more on gym myth rather than scientific necessity, and is not a sustainable lifestyle plan for most. How many times have you yo-yo dieted on and off these types of plans? Wouldn’t you rather find a more practical plan that makes it possible to stay in great shape, year-round, without requiring superhuman effort?
Intermittent Feast (2012) changes the fat loss game, and will change your approach to eating forever. Life can be enough of a struggle; your diet shouldn’t be. This approach combines principles from Paleo/Caveman Nutrition Theory with Modern Sports Nutrition Science in order to cut through diet industry fluff, simplify your plan, and help you accomplish your 3 main goals: improve overall health, ruthlessly slash body fat, and most importantly, keep it off indefinitely. It does it all without forcing you to turn your world upside down, give up your career, or have your life revolve around food. No more clock-watching or living out of Tupperware.
This expanded, multimedia product combines evolutionary theory, scientific research, and Nate’s real world practical experience as both an athlete AND a coach to help you achieve your two main goals — improve overall health and ruthlessly slash body fat. We’ve combined a video lecture series (over 3 hours) with two PDF books (The original Intermittent Feast book + Feast Anywhere: Office, Restaurant, Bar, & Coffee Shop Guidelines) to give you the most comprehensive nutritional product on the market today. After this one-of-a-kind course, you won’t need to continue wasting time seeking out “new” material, or be dependent on additional, expensive online coaching programs. You’ll know everything you need to know to get the job done, and have the practical tools necessary to apply it.
Enter the Fat Loss Dojo. The Samurai Diet (2011) provides 112 nutrition lessons related to building muscle, slashing fat, and improving health. Learn the real reasons why certain “health” foods are not that healthy for us, why the diets of athletes and regular exercisers should be different than those of sedentary populations, and why much of the “accepted”, mainstream fitness advice you read about in the magazines is flat-out wrong. It is a perfect compliment to The Intermittent Feast protocol, with more in-depth explorations of a variety of dietary topics.
II. MIYAKI’S PICKS/RECOMMENDED READING
Simplicity in a world of chaos, stripping away the unessential, authenticity and self-actualization vs. image projection, adversity as stepping stones not stumbling blocks, finding your own way instead of trying to fit into dogma and systems, flowing like water, action over thought, putting one foot in front of the other and walking on no matter what. Striking Thoughts by Bruce Lee changed my life. I hope it does for you as well.
