Day 105: RTFM

By: Kevin Larrabee, CSCS

The term: RTFM is  widely known in the gaming and tech community. It simply stands for: “Read the F**king Manual.” If you are not following the instructions or guidelines to the T of the diet or training program that you are following, you will most likely fail. Because once you add a little here, subtract a little there, you aren’t following that program anymore. You are following a whole different program that will most likely fail.

It’s just like the case where people underestimate their portion sizes (like peanut butter) because they are guessing and not weighing or measuring. I had this happen last week and my energy levels were low and I got a well deserved bitching out by Leigh Peele. If you listened to the podcast this week you know I was quite grumpy and out of line. She is the best fat-loss expert out there. If you need to lose fat and get ready for the beach you owe it to yourself to get her book: The Fat Loss Troubleshoot.

    So you are saying you stopped weighing and actually ate less in the amount of food? Or did you not weigh and eat more and that made you sluggish? Or am I in need of more coffee and not understanding. Just curious bc I think the majority of people myself included would eat much more pb than i think it is if im not weighing it.
    BTW- Leigh peele Is the jam!!!! Isnt she?

  2. I just forgot about my free day when I was suppose to be eating more and working on my lagging muscles. Something only an idiot would forget!
