I was fired up this morning. The incentives are all wrong. The actions taken by our governments are 'lip service' at best. THIS is why we have an obesity epidemic!
The back-and-forth regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is an emotional, narrative-driven battle between conspiracy theorists and the status quo. Both of these groups are unhelpful. Everyone who puts their best effort toward being informed deserves to publicly share their opinion and be involved in the discussion. Those who prefer to be informed by narrative (on both sides) should go join a reddit subgroup instead. Able citizens need to be interested in reading, viewing the data, and opening up a conversation about what it all means. Suppose the average citizen continues to be educated by social media and traditional news outlets without looking more deeply into the matter. In that case, We will never push public Health to find the best solution. Whether you agree or disagree with the lockdown method, you don't deserve to share your opinion unless you have done your absolute best to understand the data. That means reading reports, testing definitions, and other publicly available information that allows you to form an educated opinion. It doesn't have to be perfect, and none of us have to agree on what it all means- but if we are not willing to step up to the plate and assess this crisis at a ground level, we don't deserve the most favourable outcome.

The Outlaws of Health Show returns. The madness of COVID-19, Lockdown Mentality, and proof that the government never has, and never will have the best interest of your health in mind. 
At what point do the actions taken to prevent a crisis do more harm than the crisis itself? I don't know, but it is time to ask the question with a certain level of seriousness. Mental, emotional, and physical health are being overlooked. Deaths of despair are rising. Obesity is skyrocketing. Small businesses are dying. And kids can't even play outdoor sports, gyms can't guide outdoor exercise, and 30,000 square foot gymnastics clubs can't have 10 kids inside. All while retailers like Costco can have 1500 people in their stores at anytime while making record profits.
This is an audio version of my blog. In this clip I discuss the importance of forcing yourself down the path of greatest resistance to reach your goals. If you'd prefer to read the blog, click here https://tommycaldwell.net/the-fitness-philosophy-blog/. 
To overcome a destructive diet, you must be disinterested No, I don't want a piece of cake, or another drink. Willpower? Willpower is a myth. It's a fable that unfit people use to justify another person's fitness. Discipline will get you through the rollercoaster of transformation, but it's not enough to get you to the finish line. Total disinterest in the thing that you can't seem to say 'no' to is the only path to permanent change.
Why would a fit, healthy individual needlessly stuff himself with supplements? Because nerds say so! In all seriousness, I'm sure Dr.Rhonda Patrick is a helpful person and a good human being. I'm equally sure that she is smarter than I am, but she lacks a holistic view of health. I don't mean holistic as in 'but my cancer curing essential oils'. I mean holistic as in seeing beyond the test tube. But this trend toward chasing arbitrary blood chemistry- usually backed by bad science- needs reform.
If you're overweight, out of shape, and all kinds of unhealthy, the responsibility to change is on you. Assuming that the government, medical system, or big pharma has something to do with your poor condition is a surefire way to continue down a destructive path.
Is caffeine healthy? What about alcohol? Smoking weed? How about the growing popularity of psychedelics and 'micro-dosing'? This is not a question that you can effectively outsource an answer for. It is a question of connection vs escape, and the degree to which you rely on the vice/substance. Chances are you already know whether your relationship with a given substance is healthy or harmful, but you're looking for confirmation. ***This is not to be taken as professional advice or the suggestion that the use of ANY substance, legal or illegal, is being personally recommended by me. I am merely philosophizing here in a half baked way. In other words, I'm talking shit on Instagram.
If I were to ask you why you want to eat better and exercise more, you'd say something like 'because I want to be healthy' or 'because I want to lose weight'. But is that a true response? If your core motivation for taking action is not properly aligned with the habits you are trying to form, the disconnect will derail your success. Enter the Five Whys.

In this episode: Restrictions continue to tighten as COVID-19 case counts rise. At what point does the cure become worse than the disease? The purpose of this video is to show that there are considerate people who are trying to rationally understand the issue and have reasonable conversations that lead to sound conclusions. The world is not all Anti-Vaxxers and Scientismic 'Sheep' as it may appear. Let's help meaningful conversation rise to the top instead of anger, hatred, and chaos.

This audio also comes in video form. If you'd prefer to watch on Youtube, follow this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJNv0XndNNs Cosmo (Cosmopolitan magazine) recently released a controversial campaign that included two obese women on the cover with the title 'This is Healthy'. Now a polarizing argument has started to determine if you can be healthy AND obese. Some see the campaign as a beautiful step in the right direction while others see it as irresponsible and dangerous. I see it as a misunderstanding between two groups who think about the issue in very different ways.

When it comes to maximizing your fitness, you have immediate, critical needs- helpful, but less significant interventions- and strategies that are so far off in the distance you shouldn't even consider trying them. But us silly little humans always look down-range to the 100m targets first when the most helpful tactics are right in front of our faces. In this episode, I discuss the difference between these 3M, 10M, and 100M targets.
