The 'First Principles' Behind Losing Fat & Gaining Muscle | MTFP Ep.142

Listen on

Episode notes

Too many people get caught up in the minutia when it comes to losing weight: brown rice vs white? Intermittent fasting or keto? One protein shake or two protein shakes per day? These questions are all missing the forest for the trees. What these questions are missing is problem solving from a "first principles" approach.

A first principle is a foundational proposition or assumption that stands alone. We cannot deduce first principles from any other proposition or assumption. Basically, we can't break it down any further. Which is a good thing, because this means we get to the root of the problem! When we know what the foundational problem is, we know where to point our efforts when solving it. And in this solo episode, I try to break down fat loss and muscle building to it's key components, so it's as simple as possible for you to understand. Once you understand it, it will guide your future decisions. Hope it helps!
