My diet and workout

CASS-Free Sunday travel to Denver. It wasn't as bad as last time, but I still had a headache and fatigue upon arrival.

A good 8-hours of sleep put me back on track.

Today is CASS-Free as well, and I still had a good upper body workout.

Tomorrow will be a squat workout with pre-training caffeine, then some filming, and finally a late flight to Miami.

But it will all be worth it to see Bedros and Joel and our 1-Day Mastermind attendees on Wednesday!

Today's workout was a fun, Meathead Monday in a hotel gym.

1) Max Pause Pushup - 32 (1-1-1-1 tempo)
2A) Chinups
2B) DB Chest Press
3A) Pullups
3B) DB Neutral Grip Incline Press

Good times.

A friend asked me for my personal diet plan...and for my thoughts on Bulletproof coffee. My reply:

ha, I've never had a coffee in my life. Not old enough yet!

My diet's all 1-ingredient foods.


Breakfast "Craig's Bulletproof Cereal" - coconut oil, walnuts, banana, almond butter, honey (all mixed in a bowl, like cereal...this keeps me full for 5-6 hours...probably has 1,000 calories in it)


Lunch - giant spinach & vegetable salad & olive oil... sometimes I add meat, other days I have an apple with almond butter instead of meat


For example, today was a salad from Mad Greens in Denver:

- spinach, broccoli, olives, mushrooms, artichokes
- and I added an Epic Lamb protein bar (it's like jerky)

Dinner - meat, potatoes, vegetables, and fruit for dessert


For example, when I eat at restaurants, I'll have steak, a baked potato, asparagus, and a side of olive oil to pour on my potato and greens. Usually an apple, grapes, or pineapple for dessert (at home).

***It's not high carb or low-carb or super-high-protein or paleo (although it is gluten-free, always, and usually dairy-free)


Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – HJ Brown Jr.


Push on,
