Sad But True

This is pretty ridiculous but sadly spot on to the direction our society is heading.

What’s even sadder is the fact that many people don’t even have control over it because their brain is being hijacked by the biological affects of the foodlikeproducts our nation consumes on a regular basis, making up for over 75% of diets and is full of sugar.

I was once there but luckily for me, and my genetic predisposition, I stayed “in-shape” and was “healthy”. At least I thought I was healthy.

The inflamed state of my body from such a processed diet, along with mutated genes and specific negative genes activated, led me to being diagnosed with a non cancerous meningioma brain tumor.

Since then, I have made some serious changes to my lifestyle and diet and I share this with all of you to inspire each and every one of you to make just one small change to your lifestyle and diet that could have such a profound impact you’ll never fathom until experienced.

You don’t need to be perfect or do it all at once. Just adopt one small change here and there, and stick to it, and share what you experience with others.

@nutritionschool refers to this as the ripple affect and I have seen it take place on a regular basis in my life.

Love your body and treat it right. You won’t be disappointed.

Persistence is How I Made It Here

Persistence to land a trick has taught me many invaluable lessons in life.

To accept this kind of pain just to land a trick on your bike changes you mentally and subconsciously in such profound ways.

I wasn’t aware of it in the beginning but in my last few years competing and progressing, I started to become conscious to what was going on.

Now I harness it all for my purpose to serve and support those around me and willing to hear what I have to say.

Steak Dinner

@jciake crushed dinner last night.

Steak from @butcher_box and a Brussels sprout salad she made with shredded Brussels, sun dried tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, bacon, ranch, and some spices / @redmondrealsalt.

An example of how easy and delicious a keto aligned meal can be while implementing a ketogenic strategy to improve your brains health and performance while also improving body composition, energy levels, and disease risk.

Keto Choices

Choices people, CHOICES.

Keto is NOT hard, unsustainable, or unhealthy.

You know what’s hard?

Suffering from a disease. Having your skull cut open to remove a tumor trying to kill you. Dealing with cancer. Loosing someone in your life. Feeling physical pain from things that could be avoided.

The list goes on.

That said, there’s a ton of context involved around those statements and it’s why I do all I do. From coaching to speaking, to investing my time, money, and energy into creating content that brings you all value.

All my efforts are context based and I believe we all have potential the become as healthy, happy, and successful as we believe we can become.

It’s all in our choices.

If anyone wants to prioritize the health of their brain and allow it to perform better and become more resilient to disease, utilizing the power of ketones as a tool and/or lifestyle can be a game changer.

There’s also a ton of support for body composition, energy, recovery, inflammation, oxidative stress, and so much more from ketones themselves along with the consciousness of all areas of life that keto has shown me.

Here’s an example of a dialed keto meal taken from Eastern: lamb, Brussels, and a zucchini boat stuffed with an artichoke spinach dip.

Some clean protein, non-starchy veggies, and plenty of fats.

Josh P. 💚🧠✌️

But, Fat Makes Us Fat

Not. Fat does NOT make us fat. If we’re talking the right context.

Here is an easy filling dinner consisting of a bunch of non-starchy & fibrous veggies, quality protein, and lots of delicious fats.

If you want to burn body fat, you gotta eat healthy fats while getting rid of the crap foods.

I was conditioned by mainstream media and education to think fat was bad for our heart health and would make us fat.

What I had to dig deep to learn on my own was far from what I was being told and sold.

In the pretense of whole foods, lowering carbohydrate and sugar consumption, and eliminating toxins and stress as much as we can, fat is an integral part of brain and overall health.

Fat is critical for brain health in general.

Where fat gets a bad wrap is when people confuse dietary fat with the following:

1. unhealthy body fat as a result from poor lifestyle choices.

2. the combination of excessive fat consumption along with excessive carbohydrate and sugar consumption.

3. fat combined with processed food and sugar intake, which the latter is toxic no matter what its combined with or not.

4. tom foolery marketing backed by sugar companies claiming that fat is bad.

5. false propaganda for different dietary theories claiming that fat and cholesterol destroy our health and they we need “heart healthy” whole grains.

Can you name any more reasons why people believe fat to be evil?

Glycogen Stores

Did you know sugar gets stored in the body as “glycogen” in the liver & muscles?

The liver glycogen can be released & used for energy but the muscle glycogen is “trapped” in the muscle & must be burned inside of the muscle tissue as energy.

One factor dictating the state of ketosis you enter is liver glycogen being removed.

Following a ketogenic diet on top of resistance training & HIIT will support your efforts into getting into a state of ketosis by burning up the stored liver glycogen as well as ensuring that you don’t overfill em back up from excessive amounts of carbohydrates & sugars as most of us do after workouts.

Here is a great full-body circuit that can be done in less than 15 minutes.

5 rounds of the following:

👉🏼squats x3

👉🏼seated box jumps x5

👉🏼overhead press x3

👉🏼shot put this x3 each side

Drink Your Fat

Do you drink your fat?
 
We all know that our morning cup of coffee can get us moving, but how long does that quick energy boost really last? Usually, by late morning or early afternoon, the dreaded “crash” makes its way into our day leading to unhealthy choices like too much caffeine or sugar overload.
 
Instead, adding “healthy fats” to your morning cup can provide more sustained energy as these fats are the most energy packed macronutrient and can support your fat-burning machinery.
 
I use @wildfoodsco coffee & 🍄powder (code “WILDJOSH12” for 12% off entire order) and @perfectketones MCT oil powder (code “JoshPerry” for 15% off entire order) for those 🧠 boosting ketones🔥
 
Drinking fat made all the world of a difference for my energy levels and ability to effortlessly begin my fasting routine. It has also helped me add in the fats required for nutritional ketosis when I first began my keto journey and couldn’t fathom adding in even more fat and where to add it.
 
Drinking your fat can supply you with a “fat fast”, which aligns with a ketogenic diet and lifestyle but also helps curb hunger and allows you to adjust to a strict intermittent fasting routine. Consuming fat to start your day, minus carbs and protein, can improve your mental focus, energy, clarity, and help reduce inflammation that comes with a traditional westernized meal of grains, fruit, juices, sugar, etc.
 
So #drinkyourfat ladies and gents!

Want To Become A Fat-Burner?

In order to burn fat, we must switch our genes from sugar-burning to fat-burning. In order to do that, it takes time! In short, this is also what it takes: mindset, nutrition, and fitness. Today, I want to share about an advanced technique I use and guide my clients to eventually utilizing: FAT-Fasted workouts. Specifically, full-body workouts.

Full body workouts are the best for stimulating lipolysis (fat burning) and mobilizing the fat.

Although you can get health and body composition benefits from a ketogenic diet, exercise helps increase the rate at which you see and feel the benefits.

Strength training specifically helps burn what’s called glycogen (stored sugar) in the muscles as well as the liver.

In order to get the solar energy production of ketones (by-product of burning fat), we have to deplete the glycogen stores in the liver and muscles. A ketogenic diet and exercise is the best way to do this, for a number of reasons.

8-27-18 FAT-Fasted Workout

👉🏼4×6 back squat & pistol squats (each side)

👉🏼4×8 bent rows (each side), pull ups, toes to bars, & side planks (10breaths each side)

👉🏼3×12 kettle bell swings & goblet squats

Another interesting thing to note is that when someone has a lot of belly fat to remove, there is typically a lot of fat stored in the liver that needs to be burned. This is why some may not notice too much of a change in the belly fat for some time until the liver is cleaned out.

The liver is what produces ketones once glycogen stores are deleted but it also is where fat may be deposited from a poor diet. So, again, a ketogenic diet is a great tool to implement for some time to get the desired results. Then, once we are happy with our results, a lifestyle approach can be discussed in the context of the individual and their goals.

The Problem – most people don’t want to take the time to do this correctly and end up rushing the process, only to:

  1. Push through with WILLPOWER until that runs out and they lose the bandwidth to continue.
  2. Suffer through the process with another un-sustainable approach leading to failure.
  3. Not see the results they are looking for all together and give up.
  4. Harm themselves in the process of rushing.

I personally took a few of these approaches until landing on the process I now use with my clients on a journey guiding them to success. It starts with the CLARITY & WHY behind the initial GOALS, progresses with GRATITUDE & TRUSTING the PROCESS, and manifests into a TRANSFORMATIONAL new version of yourself that lasts a lifetime. 💚✌️

Client Success – Joe Curcuru

My client, Joe Curcuru, is an amazing person all around and is killing it! I am beyond grateful to be in his corner and to see his face light up every week we meet. 🙏🏼

Matt Arthur aka @919Spine introduced the two of us while crossing paths to get adjusted one day about 2 months ago.

He told me about Joe’s amazing transformational story of removing 50pounds or so in 6 months by cleaning up his eating and getting his butt in the gym.

Joe was very curious about KETO and we sat down for a conversation and decided to work together to create some more progress.

Joe wanted to progress with his success and continue improving the health of his brain at the same time. He’s now down ever more fat mass, up in lean muscle mass, down in visceral fat (dangerous fat around the organs), can go 16-18hrs without food effortlessly, last week of type-2 diabetes medication, and overall happier and energized. 🙌🏼

Joe has a similar beginning to a lot of people out there and Joe wants them to know if they truly want to change, they can if he can.

I’m honored to be apart of his journey and share his success with all of you to hopefully inspire even just one of you to make a change and/or reach out to someone like myself for support. 🙏🏼💚✌️
