In the last few weeks of 2016, I was given newfound motivation to simply get things done. I am big believer that action is the variable that separates wishful thinking from accomplished goals.
When re-examining how I feel I can reach out to people, I examined audio and video methods. I concluded the audio was the easier to produce at this current time. I am happy to report that SIF now has a podcast called, "Dedication to Improvement" to reflect the support group name and to help educate on the idea of perfection is a myth but improvement is a reality.
When beginning to assemble this endeavor, I was contemplating what subject matter would grab people's attention. I know I could personally talk about various exercise methods and energy systems but that would not grab the audience (in my assessment) very well.
I decided to go with something that pretty much everyone would be interested in, FOOD. Specifically speaking, what would be the ideal way for an individual to eat to attain his/her health goal(s)? That answer to that is multi-layered. However, there are some major points that can be understood in order to get pieces of that particular puzzle put together. This is why I decided to begin with the subject of Macronutrients or "Macros" for short.
The components of our food are,
What are they?
Why are they important?
How do much of each do we have?
Do we need them all?
The seemingly complex world of nutrition and eating are touched on in this first episode, "Macros with Byron Ross". I reached out to Byron after observing his ability to teach the concepts and put it into practical application for the general public. That ability is quite the skill in and of itself. While we may have the science in our head, if we cannot connect with the audience, aka, a client, the ability to comprehend and follow through on a plan may not be good.
While there is no way to comprehensively cover this entire topic in such a short amount of time, I do feel the interview succeeded in making the concept of eating less complex. With that said, I present to you Episode 1 of Dedication to Improvement,
