Nutrition Rules

Big dinner (gluten-free for me) last night at Il Gabbiano in Miami. I had the veal chop (fantastic) and broccoli. I also snuck some lamb chops from other diners, and they were legendary. It might have been a nightly special, though, but if they are offered, get them.

But even better than the food was the company. I was there with Bedros Keuilian, Shawna Kaminski, Mikey "No I did not eat pancakes at an Italian restaurant" Whitfield, Brian Kalakay, Dan Long, Shaun Hadsall, and Joel Marion.

Great restaurant, even better company.

Here are two pieces of nutrition advice to follow. The first should be followed 95% of the time. It's classic advice from Jack LaLanne who once said, "If man makes it, don't eat it." So avoid foods with labels. Stick to one-ingredient foods like fruits and vegetables, raw nuts, eggs, chicken breasts, and good cuts of beef.

The second piece of advice follows up on that, and you should stick to it 100% of the time. It's more of a rule than advice: "#1 nutrition truth - if you have junk food in the house, you're going to eat it. Win this battle by keeping it out of your home."

Your body is a temple. Do not disrespect the gift you have been given by consuming excess junk food or alcohol on a regular basis.

Follow those tips and you'll lose fat fast while eating real, delicious food.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Every time you say yes to something, you are saying no to something else. When you say yes to more work, you say no to more time with family. You must think about the right choice. How you spend your time is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.

Remember this: “Money < Time < Reputation < Family < Love
