Two weeks of amazing Olympic bodies is enough to get anyone motivated to train right and eat better.
So let's take a look at what REALLY works
First up, Usain Bolt's recipe for success?
For breakfast: Hash browns, fruit, apple juice and a chicken wrap from McDonalds. "It had vegetables so it was healthy," he noted in an article in the Globe and Mail.
Then there's Michael Phelps
Well, we've all read about his 12,000 calorie per day diet.
And yet these guys have ripped abs that are clearly NOT made in the kitchen.
So how do they get their Olympic hard bodies?
Hard core training, of course.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Even if the "worst" does happen in your life, remember this does not change who you are, what you believe in, and what you stand for. It does NOT change you. Only YOU change you. You can let tough times change you, or you can change the tough times. Stay strong. Never give in.
It is tempting for us myself included to remain in our comfort zones. But that is not where we grow, improve, and make the changes necessary to dramatically move ahead. So my challenge to you to do the opposite. Look at what you are doing to stay in your comfort zone and think, "What is the opposite action of my instinct? And would this opposite action be the better solution?"
Life is more positive than it is negative. Of course, you can choose to look at it the other way, but that won't get you very far at all.
Oh, and one more thing...
Made a little loan yesterday on www.kiva.org helping these ladies in Nicaragua with their clothing business. Kiva is a great way to help those that are helping themselves. They pay back your loan and then you get to loan to other people. That was my 15th loan.
