341: Motivational Minisode

Tags:

I had a particularly motivating morning the other day. However, it didn't start out that way. It started out with an onslaught of self-doubt, excuses and self-imposed limitations.

When I talk about nutritional improvements, I'm quick to consider someone's baseline. I'm not going to recommend the Golden Rules of Carbs & Fat Loss to someone who is currently eating fast food & candy every day. It would probably be too big a transition for them, right now.
