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.

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.

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.

Brain Optimization Food

Fat-burning brain optimization food.

I’ll never get bored of this meal. Full of brain healthy fats and proteins.

100% keto and delicious.

@yezfoods coming in with that weekend “indulgence” in the only “keto bread” I’ve fallen in love with.

Wanna burn body fat and remove excess weight, you gotta give the body the materials to do so.

No more “eat less move more”’ mentality as it’s been documented numerous times that this model isn’t sustainable or helpful for brain optimization.

Carbs are not the enemy, our choices and ignorance are. Being fat-adapted and disciplined creates so much liberation from cravings, empowerment on conciliatory choices, increased energy, effortless fat-burning and a sense of freedom to live life on YOUR terms.

This is a great example of a meal that can help facilitate al of the above and I’m here to help bring awareness and support to all of you.

Just START

Best piece of advice I’ve heard and share….just START!

You don’t have to be the best out of the gate.

You don’t have to run before you can walk.

You don’t have to backflip before you can clear the jump.

You don’t have to speak to large crowds before you can speak in front of the mirror.

You don’t have to write the whole book before you write a chapter.

And, you don’t have to crush heavy weight in the gym before you can make a habit of just going on regular walks during the week and doing some body weight exercises.

STOP overanalyzing your goals.

STOP thinking you need to learn more.

STOP thinking you need to go faster.

STOP thinking you can’t.

STOP thinking you need others to start.

STOP believing the bullshit story you and others have told yourself why you can’t when in fact, YOU CAN.

If I can, YOU can. Just start by believing you want it bad enough to do something about it and can in fact do it!

Then take action and don’t give up!

I get asked “what’s the secret to your success” often and there’s no secret. Starts with a desire, faith in that desire being obtainable, a plan, action and figuring out more along the way.

Read “Think & Grow Rich”, “The Power Of I Am and the Law Of Attraction” or “You Are A Badass” and it’ll make more sense.

EyeQ & Ketones

Before and after with @justpruvit pure therapeutic exogenous ketones thanks to @theaspi.

My EyeQ went up 10 points 30 minutes after consuming Keto//OS NAT and I could feel the difference.

The keto conversation transcends weight/fat loss in such profound ways that if that’s all we focus on, we’re just scratching the surface and devaluing the potential for ketones on so many levels.

Weight loss is a byproduct of prioritizing brian health and performance.
