Daily Rules (habits)

  1. Eat veggies and fruit before carbs, meats, fried food, etc.
  2. Drink water not soda/juice
  3. Drink coffee black
    1. Easier with better coffee – i.e.: freshly roasted, freshly ground, and pour over (chemex or hario v60)
    2. I have an upcoming iPhone/Apple Watch app for amazing coffee brewing
  4. Walk more (5,000 steps a day goal)
    1. Meditative after speed walking for 10 minutes
    2. More creative thoughts and ideas flow after walking
  5. Prepare lunch/snacks at night or in the morning
    1. A friend or family member makes it less work and easier to start

I lost 20 lbs in one year

I've lost around 20 pounds by focusing on what I eat and preparing better meals for breakfast and dinner.

Eating veggies and fruit in the mornings and for lunch helps me avoid the food coma that I used to suffer from and allows me to focus better on my creative work.

I cut out most dairy during the day (cheese at night) so that my throat doesn't get gunky – which allows me to record with less effort and less takes (usually a single take for my videos or audio productions).
