The dunking midget. Most people cant imagine a midget doing a 360 dunk in the NBA while the crowd is going wild. Honestly the chances of a midget doing it in the NBA are remote but a midget with the ability to dunk isnt impossible at all. This ties into the type of mindset you have a growth or fixed one. Do you see yourself as a midget and therefore never attempt to learn the art of dunking? Or do you see yourself as a midget that hasnt learned the art of dunking yet? Whether youll do it in…

Flow. A process of decreased activity in certain parts of the brain to increase activity in other parts. It underpins the altered states that you experience when you completely dissolve in what you do. It might be a handstand baking bread or playing a video game. All these activities have the potential to plunge you into the deep now. It can be an amazing tool to put your performance on rocket fuel. What does it mean for you? If you know how to trigger this system you unlock a potential…

Digesting and absorbing energy takes energy. The thermic effect of food (TEF) is the effect a food has on your energy usage. Protein out of the 3 major macro nutrients (Protein carbs & fats) has a thermic effect of 20-25% which means for every calorie consumed 20-25% of that caloric value is burned in the process. Fats have a TEF of 0-5% and carbs a TEF of 10-15%. What does this mean for you? Choosing a protein rich meal with a similar caloric profile instead of a carb or fats rich meal can…

The low-hanging-fruit deficiency. You crave its bitter-blacktar taste in the morning even before you heat the toilet seat. The craving makes your tastebuds tingle. The tingle makes your heart skip a beat. You are in a love-hate relationship with the warm embrance of the caffeine that keeps you awake but you arent deficient in coffee you are deficient in sleep. #getyosleep #lowhangingfruit #aintnobodygottimeforthat #coffeecravings #sleep #nutrition

The bloody-shitty war of cravings. The microbes in your gut can influence your eating behaviour by generating cravings for food they specialise on or foods that suppress their competitors. They can even change your sense of taste. You might try to live in the fairy tale that you are in blissful harmony with nature but on a microbial level your body is a bloody-shitty warzone. And what happens on the battlefield of your digestive system influences your cravings. What does this mean for you?…

Confirmation bias. A shortcut to turn an absurd nutrition idea into a belief and a believe into a lifelong superficial conviction. Step 1: Find/formulate an idea. Step 2: Only look for information that confirms that idea. 3: Disregard every challenging piece of information. Step 4: Try to convince the people around you that they are wrong. Step 5: Tell yourself that everyone who doesnt agree with you is mentally retarded and at a lower level of consciousness. Step 6: Call yourself a ... and…

Bubble boy syndrome. You stop eating meat because it kills you. You stop eating fish because it contains mercury. You stop eating carbs because they make you fat. You stop eating fat because it makes you fat. You stop eating vegetables because they are genetically modified. You stop eating fruit because fructose destroys your liver. You stop enjoying life because it might end up reducing your longevity. You are suffering from bubble boy syndrome you discover that everything potentially kills…

The circadian rhythm. Exercise performance is highly associated with your core temperature which in turn is affected by your biological clock. There are of course big variations amongst individuals but research indicates that maximal physical performance is most frequently seen later on the day. What does that mean for you? Either you make sure you increase your core temperature during early training sessions or you train slightly later on the day. #rhythm #circadianrhythm #performance…

Faceplant. Eat your veggies for good health? Leaves fruits and grains arent just sitting there accepting their fate as your dinner. The drive to survive and produce offspring isnt limited to the animal kingdom. Like animals most plants dont want to be eaten and have evolved a jaw-dropping array of defense mechanisms ranging from thorns toxins shells to protein mimicking substances that hijack your immune system. Yes eating your veggies can be healthy but dont confuse eating your veggies with…

Doughnut. You are a smelly doughnut not figuratively but literally. You are an organism moulded around a tube running from your mouth to your butthole. Your digestive tract therefore is the outside of your body weirdly enough. And what happens inside that outside part in the warzone of decomposing and food dissecting micro-organisms which are about the same amount in numbers as there are human cells in your body doesnt just turn into a fart it turns into you a farting doughnut. #doughnuts…

Survivorship bias. Your training program doesnt work because you made it out unharmed or without injuries. Having superior genes or a phat ass regardless of your training does not qualify you to sell a phat booty blaster or six pack shortcut. You didnt get the results BECAUSE of your program you got those results in spite of it. It doesnt mean you dont know what you are talking about it just means you might be the only survivor who can live to tell it. Credit for this lesson: Physiquonomics…

Keto fuckery. The ketogenic diet is not a magical solution to weightloss nor is it a healthy solution for longevity. Nothing magical happens other than a reduction in caloric intake leading to a subsequent caloric deficit which in ALL diets leads to weightloss. Yes even in a sugar infested transfat loaded Twinky diet. Keto adaptation?Save yourself the fuckery and elevated cortisol levels and consume carbs especially if you are an athlete that wants to increase performance. #lovethehate…
