Small measurable changes.

One thing I learned from Tim Ferris when he was on The Nerdist is that you need to make small changes in your life if you are to have success at whatever it is you are trying to do. Don't try and make too many big changes at once or you'll just give up. Don't try to go from being a sedentary junk food eater to a finely tuned athlete overnight. Start by making small changes to your diet, maybe cut out drinking pop. (Yes, actually, if you drink pop and you are fat, stop it. Pop is full of sugar and helps you be fat.) I'd also add "measurable" to "small" when talking about changes. If you are trying to get into shape, take your measurements or get a body composition test now and then do it again in a month to see how you are doing. (Tim might have mentioned the measurable part in the podcast or somewhere else).
Alright, here's my small measurable change. I'll take my measurements and start consuming 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of getting up in the morning. Tim Ferriss (I am not employed by nor do I receive any financial compensation from Tim Ferriss. I'm not in love with him either.) recommends this and has seen favorable results so I'm going to give it a try.

  1. This is the only way I can get in shape. With kids in the equation, I have to introduce things slowly, and just keep adding increments.
