3 Steps For Designing Effective Diet Plans

I’ve been “social media-ing” about a few recent nutrition talks I’ve given, and “Da People” have voiced their passionate desire to taste a few samplings of these epic events. As the humble Westley once said to Buttercup in the Princess Bride, “As you wish”.

DESIGNING DIETS FOR BUSY PROFESSIONALS

I take a slightly different approach when designing diets plans for busy professionals then for athletes.  We need to prioritize, and focus on the highest level steps first in order to produce the fastest, most effective, and most efficient results.  I believe that path is different based on different demographics.  In this first video clip, I talk about the strategy I take with busy professionals:

  1. Improve Crappy Food Choices
  2. Find a Diet Structure That Works as a Lifestyle Plan
  3. Integrate Targeted Dietary Numbers for Higher-Level Physique Goals, Over Time

DESIGNING DIETS FOR ATHLETES

The game is different for athletes, and fitness freaks and geeks.  Although the broad topics remain the same, the order of strategic importance changes.  In this second video clip, I talk about the approach I take with athletes:

  1. Focus on Detailed & Targeted Numbers First
  2. Emphasize Good Food Choices
  3. Find a Practical & Sustainable Diet Structure

POST-TALK Q AND A

I debated putting up a third clip of the bourbon-fueled post talk Q and A’s, socializing, mingling and tingling, etc.  But:

1. I’d need to get a bunch of release forms signed by the participants.  Ain’t nobody got no damn time for that.

2. I’d like to keep this site rated R.  I’m not ready to annoy you with all of the pop-ups that “pop up” on XXX-rated sites.

Totally just kidding by the way.  I’m a big talker, but not as cool as I pretend.  However, one thing can’t be denied — the people have always loved “The Miyak(i)”, and “The Miyak(i)” the people.  Maybe my trustee white board will visit your town soon.

Debunking the Paleo Diet: 89 Bullets on the Debate

Debunking Paleo Diet

*WARNING This post is a rant about the Paleo vs. Debunking Paleo Diet Debate in specific, and the health & fitness industry in general.  It is Rated “R” by the fitness blogger’s association and is bound to offend probably everyone at some point.  Sorry about that. I come from a small surfer town where: (a) we’re a little rough around the edges with the language and whatnot, (b) you can get in a fist fight with someone, and laugh about it with them over a drink a few hours later.  If you’re not that laid back, don’t keep reading.    Read the rest of this entry

Top Trainer Billy Polson’s Fat Loss Diet

In this interview, I talk with my friend and colleague Billy Polson.  He talks about the specifics of the diet plan he’s been using to lose fat, build muscle, and improve energy all while keeping up with the demands of owning, operating, and training  private clients at San Francisco’s top personal training facility, Diakadi Body.
