Make Em & Take Em!

Who wants to burn body fat for fuel while fueling their brains?

Despite following traditional theories of eating less and moving more being the way to burn fat, it’s quite the opposite if within the right context.

The truth is that when we can shift our body to run primarily off of fat for fuel, both dietary and body stores, we can efficiently, effectively, and enjoyably reach our goals with burning body fat.

Burning fat for fuel helps support many benefits to the human body.

🧠 optimizing brain health and performance.

🔥reducing inflammation and glycation (blood sugar damage).

💪🏽reducing the rate of aging (measured via telomeres).

🧬 supports epigenetics (change in gene expression, which “can be up to 70% of our genes” @drandind).

👌🏼 increased sustainable energy without hard crashes.

😎 improvements to body composition.

Keto isn’t a fad once you look into the science behind the underlining mechanisms being targeted to create so many desirable benefits.

The mitochondria are one of, if not THE, most important aspects of the ketogenic diet, or a state of ketosis, that brings on so much profound benfits to our health.

What’s interesting is as you adapt to a state of ketosis, your ketone levels begin to drop due to the body’s tissues soaking up the ketones to use for energy demands.

“It is well established that the cells’ uptake of ketones is proportional to the amount of ketones present in the blood.” Dr.’s Lowery & Wilson, Ketogenic Bible

That’s why #MakeEmTakeEm is so crucial to understand, depending on your goals and where you are with your keto journey. While we can reach deep levels of ketosis with the ketogenic diet, supplementing with exogenous ketones like @justpruvit is a must in order to get numbers up.

@justpruvit makes the only ketone on the market that you can buy, drink, and that is “naturally biologically active” Dr.’s Wilson & Lowery, Ketogenic Bible.

@ryanplowery @zonehalo @themusclephd @drandind @kendberry.md @thomasdelauer are some to learn more from in this department.

Reboot Fot Keto Adaptation

August 18th starts the next Prüvit Rebøøt, who’s in?

”Give me 2-3 days 100% effort and you won’t crave sugar” (Dr. Eric Westman), especially if you use the Rebøøt to initiate the keto adaptation process.

Keto and fat adaptation is the process of your body recognizing how to burn fat for fuel, make ketones from said fat, and learn to uptake and utilize ketones for fuel efficiently over time.

Being fat and keto adapted can be a game changer for your physical and mental performance, body composition, disease risk factors, recovery and ability to handle stress, reduce your rate of aging, and help support so much more undesirable ailments we as a society suffer from on a chronic basis.

The epigenetic (ability to influence and change gene expression) effects of ketones are truly profound as Dr. Ryan Lowery and I have been showing with medical imaging and testing, and Dr Andra Campitelli presents and she mentions how 75% of our genes may be influenced due to lifestyle choices.

The Rebøøt is a great way for people to reset their metabolism for the first time, after some indulgence, straying away from the ketogenic diet, or as a monthly mental challenge and metabolic/mitochondria boost.

Mitochondria are what’s responsible for creating energy in our body and when we can optimize their effectiveness and resilience, our body functions more optimally.

The Rebøøt is a great way to optimize your mitochondria and strengthen your fat metabolism, further supporting keto adaptation.

1 Choice : 2 paths to choose from.

No matter what the reality may be, 2 things are to note: 1) shit could always be worse and 2) you still have a choice in perspective.

This choice is where the 2 paths come in.

Choose a path of victim mentality – why me, what did I do to deserve this, this always happens, am I a bad person, life’s not fair, etc. etc.

Or, choose a path of survivorship and view every event, no matter how difficult or undesirable it may be, as an opportunity to learn, grow, and move closer to achieving our goals and living the life we desire and deserve.

Both choices take the same amount of energy and effort upfront to make but I argue victim mentality takes more time and energy, and sometime money, in the long run.

The further down the victim route we go, the more deep rooted those neurological firing and connections set it as we think the same thoughts on a regular basis and create the chemical response known as an emotion, and then take similar action to create this experience all over again on a daily basis further cementing us into this undesirable emotional and physical experience.

I encourage the choice of a survivor as it’s worth the energy and effort for the long game. Sacrificing time, energy, money, etc. is always a must in order to achieve more in our lives.

The way we choose to sacrifice things in our life is our choice and is one built on deep rooted subconscious programming.

Sometimes this programming isn’t what we want to fuel how we think and act, but often we don’t know any better or know that there’s an alternative route.

That’s my goal in all I do and share.

Show you all what I’ve learned and implemented, proving we can create the reality we desire despite where we start.

Seeing all the “bad” in your life and the world is a choice because there’s enough “good” happening if we want to find it.

Where Our Focus Goes, Energy Flows

What are you focusing on?

Weather it be “good” or “bad”, what we focus on is what we train our subconscious to be on alert for. It may not be desirable but that focus takes time and energy, and leads to specific action, and this combination keeps us on track for whatever that focus is be it desirable or not.

If we are not happy with where we are in our life, we can focus on the action we take and if they truly align with our desires.

If not, make some changes to the actions so that they align with your desires.

I first became really aware of this concept as a teenager thanks to BMX.

If I want to do a trick for the first time and don’t invest time and energy to practicing that trick, how can I ever expect to do the trick? And if the trick isn’t working, I have to make some changes to my approach in order to get a new result.

Same in other areas of life, these changes take a lot of time and energy to be devoted to manifesting the desire.

It’s not easy but it’s real simple when we take a step back, reach out for support, and really audit our actions.

It sounds cheesy and cliche but it’s so true. The only reason we often don’t create this discipline in our life is because we don’t believe it works.

Once I committed to change and believing in my efforts, I started seeing massive shifts in my life in terms of success, health, happiness, and abundance.

How To Form Partnerships & Obtain Sponsorships

I get asked a lot about “how to get sponsored” as athlete or in other forms.

What I’ve learned over the years with sponsorships or even personal relationships is value is king.

Let’s break down both examples.

1) Sponsorships: I’ve created a partnership with @justpruvit based on our core values aligning 100% and my ability bring the brand and community immense amounts of value. We both believe the same thing but my story, my actions, my desires, and my perspective are the proof of our core values in reality, not just on paper. How I live my life, how I connect with others, and how I bring others value at the same time is an example of what @justpruvit and I stand for. The value they seem in me is the ability to walk, talk, and help grow their message and beliefs around the world. It’s not just about my abilities, it’s more about my integrity and purpose.

2) Personal Relationships: @jciake and I not only enjoy our time with one another and all our similar interests, we also provide each other with endless amounts of mutual value in the terms of support, self-awareness, love and laughter, creativity, adventure, etc. as a loving couple sharing a life together. We don’t look at our relationship as a business transaction, haha, but to easily paint a picture and give an example of “value”, this is kind of how it breaks down when you stop and look at things. Same with @justpruvit, it’s not a business transaction we see. It’s the potential to change lives by combining our energy, perspectives, actions, and voices together to fulfill our purpose.

At the end of the day, if you want something in your life you have to think about what it is you’re willing to do for the things you want. Somethings that means sacrifice.

Sacrifice could be time invested into a biz or personal relationship, less time for yourself to support the one you live, your time creating content for the brand you desire a partnership with, money invested into an idea for a business you may have, energy spent in the gym to get in shape, etc.

VALUE VALUE VALUE is the key to any partnership you desire, in business and personal relationships.

No excuses, just CHOICES

Yes or YES?

I don’t believe in excuses being anything other than a choice.

We all have a choice, no matter what. That choice is perspective.

We can make excuses as to why we can’t live the life we desire and affirm it to be true, therefore live in that truth.

Or, we can shift our perspective to seeing the world differently and finding a way to manifest the life we desire.

It’s not easy but it’s quite simple and my life is a great example of perspective shifts added to the mental and physical sense of action aligned with the desire.

Want something in your life?

Step 1: create the desire in your mind.

Step 2) stop telling yourself the bullshit excuse as to why you can’t when others just like you, and sometimes worse off than you, are doing that very thing you’re telling yourself isn’t possible.

3) develop a routine of positive subconscious programming whether that’s affirmations, meditation, or the content you choice to consume. Either way, make sure the energy and words are uplifting and serving your desire and purpose. What we feed our minds leads to the action we take and manifest our reality, either for or against our desires.

4) take ACTION and be relentless when it comes to perseverance and making it happen. Had I not had this step implemented for my BMX career, I wouldn’t have won a content, wouldn’t have made it to the most elite level of competition, and wouldn’t have started riding again after injuries or brain surgery.

5) build and maintain the belief in yourself despite whatever noise out there saying otherwise. If I can succeed with my goals, anyone can. *self awareness comes in play huge here because I’m not saying if your my height that you’ll be in the NBA or that if you’re terrible at singing that you’ll be the next Aretha Franklin. I’m saying follow your heart, out the work in (physically and mentally), beat the odds, and never give up on what you truly desire and believe is possible for YOU.

Basics To Moving Forward

It took 75 staples, 16 stitches and a 6hr brain surgery to get me on the path of perspective and having a perspective of gratitude for even the most common things we tend to over look.

How we choose to see the world leads us to take action one way or another, which determines our personality and creates our personal reality.

When we audit our perspective and redirect it in a manner that serves us, we can then create abundance in all areas of life.

That’s my belief today and I see it unfold more and more as I practice and share this belief with others.

You can choose to believe the world is conspiring against you or for you. Either way, you’ll get what you’re looking for so I suggest we all audit what it is we’re looking for and desire.

Our subconscious doesn’t care about what we “like” and “don’t like”, it just beloved whatever we tell it.

So if everyday we tell it we’re tired, upset, broke, sick, anxious, stressed, worried, etc., that’s what we’ll find more of and eventually believe based on how we fell.

This combination leads us to falling into the auto-pilot cycle that happens every day of our life and solidifies this belief more and more based on our thoughts, actions, and emotions.

Change your thoughts, audit your actions, and change up your routines that are not serving you any more.

You Cut Your Path

You choose your reality, no one else.

How we see the world leads to the cation we take in our lives, which creates our personality.

Our personality creates our personal reality and our reality is just a manifestation of those choices.

My efforts are 2 fold: to prove my support right and honor the loved ones in my life that are no longer here today & to show you all the potential we all foster within us once we believe in ourselves.

That said, no one can stop you from achieving your goals other that yourself and what you put inside that skull of yours.

4 Months Off My BMX Bike & Now I’m BACK

I took off a few months to engage in some brain research with @ryanplowery looking at the effects of @justpruvit exogenous ketones using @doc_amen SPECT imaging.

I also wanted to clear my mind, rest my body, and focus on new endeavors I’m pursuing.

After back and forth internal struggles of wanting to ever ride again or not, I got the itch back and it feels good.

I have a few trips planned to film for @justpruvit and all of you at some amazing spots around the world as well as some crazy content ideas we have in mind to bring you all entertainment while showing you what’s possible when you believe in yourself and find your tribe.

BMX taught me pain endurance

“Pain is just one piece of information.”

I read that quote in Ronda Rousey’s book and it makes so much sense.

The other quote I love is “pain is inevitable, suffering is a choice”.

BMX taught me to endure a massive amount of mental and physical pain in order to accomplish my goals.

That foundation has set the tone for over half my current life and the rest of my life ahead of me.

With a mindset built like what BMX fosters then anything’s possible as long as the desire is strong enough and you’re willing to grind with persistence and faith.
