Scott McKay had some interesting things to say on his show about weight loss, so below is his video and an adapted version of the transcript. The video will automatically jump to the right spot when you play it:
Does that mean I'm perfect? Believe me folks, I can sin with the best of them. I'm just telling you; I like to have my cheeseburgers and everything else (candy bars). I went out bought one last night, I bought two of them last night. I bought a couple of donuts and a couple slices of pizza at 7-Eleven. I think I bought eight slices because I wanted a pizza. You say ‘well you're a hypocrite.’ No, I'm telling you the truth. I take care of myself and anybody who knows me will tell you the same thing. Ninety percent of my life I take care of business, you know from that world, but guess what? I'm going to have some fun. I'm not going to live like a rabbit or just a full-time rice eater or whatever. I'm I'm going live life. I'm going to enjoy some stuff out there that may not be good for me. I don't make it a habit. If you understand that, especially when it comes to body fat reduction, the hardest thing for people is this; they say ‘okay I'm going on a diet.’ No, don't do that. Go on a lifestyle change.
Here's a lifestyle change; find somebody that knows what they're doing (and I'm going to start a live stream). I'm going to do one because it's the world I come from and I have all this knowledge from all the years that I did what I did and I need to just do a live stream to offer people up what I spent decades learning. It's just not something that's part of my daily life and conversation because it was never a passion of mine, this is my passion. But when you just turn a couple of screws on how you feed yourself, right? I always tell people ‘look, when you're going to make a lifestyle change, it's not going to be as hard as you think.’
Know this, what I share with you is going to work 100 percent. You're not one of those special people that it's not. It works. I'm going to show you, after you watch Big Fat Fiasco, here's how you change your eating habits and you're going to do this and you're going to do it day by day by day; just one day at a time. And after two or three days you're like ‘Hey I really did this! I can do this! I did it!’ You know, it's like an alcoholic. ‘I'm going to take the next day, the next day, and the next day.’
I teach people when you're going to walk a mile, you don't start (and you're tired) you don't just start thinking ‘Oh my goodness! I'm 300 yards into it. I'm exhausted. I got to go a whole mile.’ I just teach people ‘walk telephone to telephone pole’ See that telephone pole there? Just walk to the next one. Once you get there say ‘Okay I'm just going to go one more telephone pole.’ When you break it down into about 15 to 20 telephone poles, now you have something to measure that's in reach; just that telephone pole and if I want to quit I'm going to quit. ‘I'm just going going to get one more’ and then you do. And you don't quit you're like ‘I can do another one.’
Same way with how you feed yourself. I always tell people ‘look, people fail at changing that lifestyle behavior because they think it's for the rest of their lives.’ It's not. You only have to run a deficit until you let your body devour off the bad part of it, all the extra fat that you don't want, devour that as energy until you hit where you want to be, and guess what? You don't have to run a deficit anymore. You know, you can stop running the deficit and pick it up. I teach people ‘look, eat every three hours; a little bit every three hours.’
That's how they eat out in the indigenous parts of the world. That's all they do. They walk all day and they just grab stuff off of trees; they eat here and there. They don't say ‘okay I got to pow a bunch of food in my face because it's breakfast.’ ‘It's halfway through the day pow enough in my in my face again’ A ton more (half of it's going to spill out of the body into the fat cells anyways because it can't assimilate it) and they do it again at nighttime; pow a bunch of food in their body. All that stuff gets stored, all the extra that they don't need. Where if they took the exact same food that they were eating and spread it out over six times.
Take your breakfast, cut it in half, eat more protein, less carbs. Real simple. Eat more protein, that's what your body's made of. Your hair skin, nails, eyes, muscle; everything's made out of protein. Eat more of it, cut the other stuff in half, double your protein. Cut everything else on your plate in half. There's your breakfast. Now whatever's left on that plate, cut each of those things in half, push one half aside put it in a Tupperware container, eat the other half right on a spot, and then when you're at work or wherever else, about two hours later eat the other half of your breakfast. Do the same thing at lunch; whatever it is, half sandwich, have enough protein there, eat half a sandwich at lunch, wait two hours, eat the other half (same food). Do the same at dinner time. You break the same quantity of food up, the same choices. Even fast food. I've done this and proved it myself. Same quantity, same type of even crappy food, split it into six times, you're eating that food as opposed to three you're going to see your body start to change. It's truly miraculous.
Look, I can tell you this, winning and losing on the national competitive bodybuilding stage was fully dependent on understanding how the human body works in this way, okay? So it's not really hard. The second thing you need to do is have a reward day. Saturday for me is, and my friends will tell you, the annihilation I would put on my body on a Saturday, which would be my day off to eat whatever the heck I wanted. It was insane. So what you'd find out is you can psychologically hold off for a week because yes I want ice cream, beer, pizza—whatever you don't want to have every day—if you wait till Saturday you're just like okay it's Wednesday one more day I can make it one more day.
Saturday's a free-for-all. I would even push Saturday till three or four o'clock I'm like I'm going to stretch it out I'm going to stay I'm going to stay on the train, but then I'd go to the Red Robin in Calabasas and I would have a beer and a basket of fries right up front while they're cooking my Royal Red Robin Burger and I'm hammering it with with ranch dressing, so then the burger comes, I eat that and I get another basket of fries and more ranch dressing and I have another beer and then after that I'd have a milkshake. And me and my buddy Kelly, we would do this on a Saturday night and then I would drive to a supermarket and I'd get one of the family bags of the little peanut butter cups, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, the small ones. And then I would lay on the couch (we had a townhouse we lived in together out there when I first moved out there, first couple years). And I'd lay on the couch and I would just be breathing heavy because my stomach would expand so much I could hardly breathe the whole time. I'd be opening up another peanut butter cup and I just keep jamming these things away until they were gone. It was insane. He's like ‘there's truly something wrong with you, truly.’ But when I was done eating all that stuff I love to eat, I put myself through so much pain come Sunday, man I didn't want to see that stuff for a week. It worked.
But anyways, what I'm telling you is it's not hard when you know you can cheat one day a week. Do whatever you want. And then once I got to where I needed to be, you know body fat wise, I would just carry that way. I would throw in Wednesday night ice cream, I'd go have a milkshake or have ice cream on Wednesday night and eventually you know once you get to where you want to be then you can loosen up. You don't have to be as strict, but it's really not hard to do. Getting control of your own health is truly truly in your own hands and honestly folks it's really not as hard as you think it is. Most people put too much on themselves.
‘I'm going to have to live like a rabbit for the rest of my life’ it's not. I eat more saturated fat now than I've ever eaten my whole life. What I do not do—saturated fat to me is a very slow burning long-term source of fuel and energy. My brain works much better when I'm using saturated fat—bacon, you know, eggs, whole eggs, whole bacon, avocados. I have a coffee bullet in the morning—make my coffee, put it in a blender, throw in two tablespoons of grass-fed butter and two tablespoons of coconut oil, blend it up in a blender and I've got this really rich mocha. Sip it throughout the morning, I've got all the energy I need. It's there all day long. I have my protein, I have all the green stuff (veggies) I want, but I don't eat rice and potatoes and all that stuff I used to when I was younger for training. You don't need that stuff. You're not hungry. You don't miss anything because your body has all the fuel that it needs and you don't have the hunger, the craving process driving you to make mistakes and eating the wrong kind of food.
Anyways that's my little soapbox in that whole world, but I hope it can be helpful to you. We do have a lot of things coming that's going to help us course correct all the things that they've basically programmed us to do to our bodies, so we can actually live a more energetic happier life. Those things are going to come on the back end once they bring this cabal down.
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.
Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.
