You spent 16 plus years getting educated and qualified, you get yourself into a position where you are now considered part of society. Though now through no fault, you find yourself immersed in a culture of doing everything that is entirely awful for your health and waistline.
Sitting at a desk, staring into a screen, eating sugary baked goods in the common area, drinking alcohol often & partying till late at night…
“You could not have constructed a worse experiment for weight gain within a population.”
I appreciate the constraints being an ambitious young corporate soldier brings.
You DO need to go out, you DO need to entertain, you DO need to attend the meetings, networking events and adhere to a travel schedule. You need to fit in to make it in corporate.
But seriously you shouldn’t have to give up your health to do it.
So we need to think outside the box in order to get the results we want.
Here’s 6 things you’d be insane not to do for faster weight loss
I’ve found fasting tends to work better for guys.
The myth is, when you don’t eat your metabolism slows sown – 100% untrue. It’s BAU for the body.
From my point of view, it’s actually the easiest way to loose weight, you don’t have to do anything
The results are incredible for weight loss and long term health!
The science is showing that fasting is great for repair, particularly in starving off cancer cells and boosting the immune system.
I recommend fasting for 36 hours every 8-10 days. That’s from say 8pm Sunday till 8am Tuesday.
I supplement the 36 hours with 10g of BCAAs plus 1 tbsp of brain octane oil every 6 hours or so.
Ride a bike
You have to get yourself to work, you have legs and you don’t have a lot of time to exercise. It’s just honestly a no brainer. Find a way to make your 40 minute commute you’re minimum daily activity time.
Worst case scenario you end up at least doing SOME moving for the day and you save about 15KWh of energy everyday!
Rather than thinking of reasons why you can’t, put your brain to use onto ways you CAN add a minimum movement routine.
Being cold is much better for us. It helps us sleep, is better for our skin, it builds mental strength and increases fat burning 10-20%.
It’s one of those things, that requires no buy in,no time, no energy, just mental fortitude.
It’s something for nothing!
Science is showing that extreme hot, cold, altitude, exercise, fasting… Are the next level of performance. When you spend all your time sitting, these are the things we need to be looking to do to stay healthy.
The way I see it, we evolved in a harsh world, so we’re hard wired to explore unchartered levels of discomfort.
You could think of it this way, if you want to be successful, you must be ready to evolve into a highly driven machine capable of overcoming your own mental limitations.
These activities are the proving grounds for fortitude and constitution.
If you can’t handle a little cold water, a few days without eating…
How are you going to be able to break through the difficulties of life, exists above the impossibilities, be a leader and carry your team to the finish line?
Get an active hobby
We know that we need to move everyday, but seriously don’t worry about going for a run. It is quite possibly the worst activity ever.
Find yourself something fun to do with some other people.
Fulfil the need to be social and exercise at the same time. It makes way too much sense.
Frisbee, walks, hikes, surfing, touch, basketball… What ever.
Don’t put it off, organise it now!
Develop a sleep routine
Sleep is a deal breaker.
If you’re going to be good at anything, make it sleep and the BEST way to do it, is to have a routine, where you get away from screens and wind down.
I suggest blocking out an hour before bed and an hour waking up, to do everything you need to do that doesn’t involve a screen.
I call this the sleep window. It gives your brain a really good break from screens, it keeps you away from the TV and gives you time to get your day organised in advanced.
Doing mundane activities like washing dishes is really good way to decompress and relax.
Watching TV or scrolling Facebook makes you anxious – fact.
Being healthy and eating takeaway don’t go together.

Drinking + eating out
Save your alcohol consumption for times when you actually need to drink or when it’s really fun.
What I’ve found is that when we drink all the time, it just gets boring.
Make it a thing!
If you want to eat out or drink while you’re losing weight YOU CAN.
You just can’t do BOTH.
Drink or eat…
If you’re going to EAT, I suggest skipping breakfast that day so you can double down on dinner.
If you’re going to DRINK, have a really small dinner of mostly fat + protein. Like 2 eggs + 1 bacon.
Drink plain white spirits with soda water… No beer or sugar.
Then skip breakfast the next day. We do this because alcohol has a nasty effect of making your liver store fat of storing more fat the presence of sugar than usual.
If you’re serious about making some long term changes then here is exactly how you need to start. These are the easy grabs, you already eat, sleep and move… It’s HOW you do those things that determine how overweight you’re going to get going forward.
Sure you’re not in the most ideal environment for health but you can’t let it stop you!
Above you have all the things you need to make it happen…
Sure, thinking about being skinny, healthy, feeling good is great.
But taking action is a courageous and difficult step.
But if you’re determined and you cultivate strong beliefs, a powerful mindset and follow the above you WILL 100% become very lean and incredibly healthy.
The only thing that can stop you is your own perception of what is difficult and what is easy.
So here’s a little perspective.
Sleep, eat, move! No more excuses only actions.
