The good ol’ meat and nut breakfast…
…with a twist.
You’ve heard me talk about it many times, too many times for many I’m sure but for those that are not sure what, why or how, let me break it down.
The pic above was my breakfast on Monday morning.
Rump steak, steamed spinach and sixteen macadamia nuts.
Coz that’s how many I grabbed!
So what are the benefits of the meat and nut breakfast and why would you want to do this whenever you can?
This concept came originally from Charles Poliquin about ten years ago.
I’ve written about this before but I want to update you again as I had forgotten how effective it can be as a tool to have in your “fat loss arsenal”
I’m a big believer in a carb free or a low carb breakfast for most people.
Note that I say most.
Some people can tolerate carbs in the morning or rather, are able to process them effectively.
We can all tolerate them.
I was listening to a great podcast the other day with Tim Ferris and Charles Poliquin.
For those that don’t know Tim Ferris, he wrote the “4 hour workweek” and the “4 hour body”
He is basically looks at successful people, people like billionaires, top sportsman and entrepreneurs and examines what makes them tick, their morning routines, picks apart how and why they are so successful in their field…
..and then tries to improve on that.
This is commonly known as “life hacking”
Basically getting something done in life, quicker, easier and more efficiently.
Charles Poliquin is considered to be one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in the world.
He has had Olympic medalists in about 18 different sports…
…suffice to say he knows his onions.
How was your weekend?
Who watched the tennis?
It was a fantastic game from two great champions.
I have to admit, I’m a fan of Roger Federer…
Not to take anything away from Djokovic of course…
..he is clearly no 1 in the world at the moment, evidently from his display yesterday, but there is something about Roger’s style and the fluidity of his shots that appeal to me.
He carries out his duties on the court with such aplomb, it’s like watching poetry in motion
As you read this newsletter, I will be playing tennis for the first time in about 20 years.
My old partner in grime, John Hewitt, trainer at LAX on London Wall, is an avid tennis fan and player.
He has challenged me to a game this morning over at his tennis club on the Olympic park.
The odds don’t look that good for me right now.
