1. Overview

The Energy Pod Plan is for anyone who leads a productive life and doesn't have time for nonsense. This is for those who seek results and will serve as a blueprint to a healthy lifestyle. After spending countless hours in scientific research, conversing with top experts in health, fitness and nutrition and looking at the latest in food science, this plan will make you feel good and provide results.

2. Five Pillars to Success

1. MINDSET

No journey is easy. In fact, embracing our struggles is the first step to valuing our results. At the same time, pushing ourselves to the extreme can break us. Only the person in the mirror can tell us our limits, when to push past them and when to smartly take another route. There will be days of negativity and positive joy. They are both part of the journey. Observe them and understand them and don't let them manifest your thoughts that you are anchored to either of them or you will end up in disappointment. Live in the moment and look ahead for a better future.

2. MOTIVATION

"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win." ~ Sun Tzu

Mindset and motivation will be your allies in this journey. We will give you both for the next two weeks.

3. FIND YOUR PURPOSE

Making a change is something not everyone wants to do. You will have to find a purpose or more to understand why you are doing what you are about to do. Life is a beautiful experience and it's never too late to look ahead. Do your best as the best is all you can do. Write down your purpose and put it in a place where you can see every day. This is your first thing done.

4. SHATTER OLD BONDS

If this is your first transformation, the people closest to you may be the ones who will impede your progress. You may have to burn some bridges but make some new bonds with people who are on a similar journey as you are. The goal is to focus on yourself and then become a beacon of change for others to follow. Sometimes this will require sacrifice and a complete change of your environment. You will have to focus on your goals and say "no" to those who will try to pull you back in. Making a change is never easy and it won't be pleasant but the long term rewards are worth it.

 

5. CREATE NEW BONDS

When you root out what is holding you back, you must find good relationships that bring value to your life and are on a similar journey as you are. You can find this in our Ketogeek community or join a local fitness community that shares a similar lifestyle. Surround yourself with people who are on a journey of self-improvement, both mentally and physically. Find like-minded individuals who are open to change, learning and growth.

This is a huge step and very important. This would include finding a new friend, family members and potentially even a new partner if your life needs such a drastic change. Spend time with those who understand your dream and are supportive of it. Weed out the others and don't waste your time on those people.

3. Thinking Beyond Nutrition

BE PRODUCTIVE & VALUABLE

If this is the first time you are starting a diet plan or have done similar plans, this might also be a great opportunity to focus on other aspects of life. Focus on becoming a better human being and practice kindnesss and empathy.

 

TRAIN THE BODY AND MIND

You can also tag along a physical routine such as gym, yoga, crossfit or anything that provides you a constructive activit on the side.
