If this is your plan for getting in the bestshape of your life for this year then youand I have to talk a little bit. I think thebest time is right now. What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, AthleanX. com. Diet and exercise: the ultimate combo. TheHoly Grail when it comes to getting in shape?Not quite. Actually, it’s the two biggest words I frigginghate that we’re not only going to have youget rid of, but redefine, and replace withtwo things that really do matter. We don’t want to talk about diet and exerciseanymore. What we want to talk about is nutritionand training. This is not about a game ofsemantics. It’s not. This is about the mindset that goes into usingthese words. If you think about it, peoplethat talk about ‘diet and exercise’ are notall that serious. They’re in it for the shortterm. They’re looking for those short term successes. Can I follow a diet? Sure I can follow a diet. Maybe for three freaking weeks. I could tell you right now, most of the peoplethat are on here that are going to be followingdiet plans will be off of them by the 21stof January. Statistics show that 95% of those will notbe following the same damn eating plan thatwe are now. Why? Because they’re too restrictive. It’s made on false premise. It’s surroundedby things that you don’t normally do. You’re on this diet for the short term sothat you can see some short term success,but guess what? You can’t do that for a lifetime. Nutrition is something different. Nutritionis how you fuel your body. Think about how you fuel your body. If you’reworking out, how are you fueling your muscles?You need to and you need to vary the way thatyou think because you’re going to fuel yourmuscles, you’re going to fuel your body, you’regoing to provide your body with nutritionfrom now until the day you die. A diet? I hope not. I really hope not. I hopeyou’re not following diets from now untilthe day you die because that day might comea lot sooner than you hope. What you wantto do is start following a nutrition plan. One that allows you to actually live on it. One that gives you the leeway to enjoy someof the things that you like without ever feelingreally deprived. That doesn’t mean that you’lleat all kinds of junk food and shit like thatbecause we talked about that on our cheatfoods video. If you have goals in mind that might changehow that works, but at least you’re not goingto be thinking about diet. The other halfof the equation here is exercise. What isexercise?To me, exercise is purposeless. That meansI could be walking with my wife through theneighborhood and I want to see “Oh, look!The Sullivans! They put their house on themarket”, or “Oh, the Johnsons! Look at howbeautiful they decorated their porch for Halloween!”That’s not exercise. It’s a great day outwith my wife in the park, but it has no plan,there’s no progressive plan behind it, I don’tknow when the next time I’m going to do it,I don’t know what the opportunity is forme to advance that. What am I going to walk around the back andsee if they put a new pool in, too? That’snot exercise. I don’t care if you go toa gym and swipe your card at the front desk. That doesn’t qualify as exercise either. Just because you can walk into a gym. I seeso many people idly walking by, do a littlebit of bis, a little bit of tris, a littlebit of abs and then walking out not knowingwhen they’re going back, not knowing whenthey’re going to do the next day, not knowingwhen they’re supposed to progress that. If you don’t have that level of plan, orsophistication in place you’re going aroundin circles, literally. In the gym and in thetype of results that you’re going to see. You’d better start training. Training hasa purpose behind it. Training is what I tryto instill in you here at Athlean-X. Training is taking a plan, taking you whereyou are right now, giving you and opportunityto flourish with what you can do, but challengingyou so I can keep you progressing. Then whenI get you to progress you’ve got to lay thatchallenge down a little bit further aheadof you so I can keep you progressing. Sometimes I have to pull back the reins, sometimesI have to push on the gas. That’s what a trainingplan does. That’s what we do. That’s whatAthlean-X is all about. I provide you witha training plan. I provide you with a nutritionplan, one that you actually live with. I’ll leave you with one last note. A lot ofpeople – the same people that will followthese diets – will do so at the exclusionof anything because they figure “I’ve gotplenty of people and friends that have lostgreat amounts of weight using this certaindiet plan. “They may even do that again at the exclusionof any exercise at all. You know what happensthen? You create a really bad body. You createthat skinny-fat body. Maybe it’ll look okayin clothes, but as soon as you take it offyou’ve got that physique where your motherwanted a boy and your father wanted a girland they kind of both got what they wanted. You don’t want that. You see people thatlook like this, you know and I know; theydiet themselves down to the point where theylook sick. They don’t even look good. Theydon’t look healthy. “But they’ve lost weight. “So what? What is that about?If you want long term physique changes thataren’t just here for aesthetic reasons, butfor function – because you can purposelydo whatever the hell you want to do. You’rea lot stronger, you’re a lot more balanced,or you’re a lot more agile, your conditioningis better and everything works better. That’s when you need to start thinking andchanging the lingo. This is not semantics,guys. Get rid of those freaking words onceand for all. Change the way you’re sayingthese things so you can start believing thereal meaning behind what you should be doinghere. That is good nutrition and training. All right, guys. If you’re looking for a planthat does it all, it’s available at AthleanX. com.
