The End of Overeating — Book Review

22 commentsDecember 6, 2013

Recently, I crossed something off of my bucket list…

I tried the Dorito Locos Taco at Taco Bell.

As a taco aficionado, I gotta say it was amazing. In fact, it was really hard to stop eating! When I was talking to Adam (my health coach) about this he was telling me how food like this is engineered to be addicting. The combo of salt, sugar and fat can override our brains ability to regulate itself. See science article about it [...]


How to Give More: Give and Take — Book Review

8 commentsNovember 1, 2013

Recently I finished reading Adam Grant’s bestselling book Give & Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success. Although it took me a few months to read it, but I highly recommend it to anyone serious about structuring their relationships, work and business to be more generous and, in turn, more successful.

Make agreement with yourself to be impeccable with your word, that truth will [...]

18 commentsNovember 21, 2012

I just read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

A really powerful book on setting your intention and the power of your subconscious.

When you really know what you want, set a plan to accomplish. Let nothing stop you and you will be successful.
Pick a mentor group of your favorite people and if you are ever confused, imagine what they’d advise you to do.
A positive mental attitude can solve all problems.

 

Here are you’ll get [...]


The Power of Habit Book Review

12 commentsNovember 9, 2012

I’m trying something new out. I read about a book a week, I write a book report from every book I read (that I selfishly save to my hard drive).

I figured it may be helpful to share them with others.

This year I’ve formed a fair amount of new habits: morning situp / pushups, new diet, workout routine and other ocd things. Neville and I made a video about how to form, change, and find the right habits on [...]
