7 Questions to ask when changing your body
When starting this journey of change for fitness or nutrition here are 7 questions to ask yourself. This can also be applied to any area of your life not just with fitness or nutrition or better health.
1. Do you have an ego?
Have no ego. Do not pretend you understand, ask and ask and ask until you understand. This was something that I suffered with for a long time. I was and am very competitive and with nutrition and fitness I thought that I knew it all and was doing it all correctly.
In my bodybuilding days my information came from bodybuilding magazines and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.
I had an ego that was bigger then my body.
One of the rare photos of me when I was at my biggest on the Paleo Diet, around 198-202 pounds. I did not like the way I looked so I didn’t allow or take too many pics and created a story in my head that I actually looked a lot different (Think Sylvester Stallone: Rambo 🙂
One of the quotes I live by from T. Harv Eker isÂ
~You don’t know what you don’t know until you know that you didn’t know~
Does that make sense to you? Read it again if you didn’t catch it. It took me a while to get it.Â
I thought low fat, high carb
with multiple meals was the only way to eat. It’s not what your body actually needs. There was no science to back it. It’s basically Bro-Science. (Bro-Science definition from Urban Dictionary:Â Word of mouth knowledge passed off as fact, primarily among bodybuilders + weightlifters. Generally spouted most byÂ guysÂ who have used loads of steroids and areÂ huge, have no idea what is happening to their bodiesÂ and thenÂ share that same cluelessness with others whoÂ makeÂ the false assumption that their experience means that they have knowledge.)
Be willing to attempt different things and learn things outside your comfort zone. There is a thing called cognitive dissonance that can hold a person back from growing and moving forward. Always be learning.
One thing I always like is a story Les Brown tells about eating pie. He states that a women can tell how many United States guests is at a restaurant based on how they eat their dessert. She guessed the number correctly. The dessert was a piece of pie. She went around the table as they ate and counted them. In America we eat our pie from the tip to the back, in european countries they eat their pie from the back to the tip……….. interesting……….not that the way you eat pie is going to move your life forward or not……your ego will.
But what else is in your head holding you back?? No ego
