How Fahad the Computer Repair Technician Lost 50+ Pounds and Changed His Life from the Inside Out.

“Whoa! Fahad! You could fit another Fahad in your old pants!” Not every Nerd Fitness success story comes with a jaw-dropping transformation. But in Fahad’s case, it totally does. And not only does this story come with the physical transformation of Fahad (duh), but it comes with a mental transformation too. Which, in my humble opinion, is his true BIG win. Fahad’s new frame of mind is the secret to all of his later and physical success. Even crazier? Fahad’s…

The battle of passion vs work

“Do what you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” Of all inspirational quotes you can find all over the internet this is one I dislike the most. First of all, it assumes that work itself is a bad thing, something you should try to escape from. It’s a concept I disagree with but I am not going to delve on that here; we have an excellent post on our blog that talks more about…

Book Club: The Enigma of Reason (April 2018)

This month we read The Enigma of Reason. In the book, Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber consider a double enigma: If reason is so valuable, such a boon to our cognition, why did it evolve only in human beings? Second, if reason is supposed to be so good, why are we so bad at it? Why do we suffer from so many cognitive biases and mental illusions that undermine its ideal power? This book tries to explain this double enigma.…

5 Questions on following the Carnivore Diet

If you want to get some concerned looks from your friends and family, tell them you are following an all meat or Carnivore Diet. It seems to fly in the face of common sense to eat meat, more meat, and nothing but meat. Yet I see a growing trend of eating a carnivore or “zero-carb” diet. To eat meat, and solely meat, in the name of health. The popularity of eating only meat made me curious enough to explore the…

One question you should to ask yourself to take back control over your money

When Cedric and I decided to leave London, we came across the big question – what the hell are we going to do with all our stuff? Furniture was easy; it stayed in the flat. The problems began when we started to empty those cupboards and drawers. It was like opening Pandora box. The piles and piles of stuff we forgot we even had. Looking at dozens of bags filled with things we decided to give away, sell or throw…

Pull-Up (Master Resource) | Nerd Fitness

Pull-ups are my favorite exercise of all time. They work all of the “pull” muscles in your body – your back, biceps, forearms. They are indicative of your level of fitness – anybody that can do a pull-up is in pretty good shape. And anybody that can do 10 or more is clearly in great shape. Lastly, pull-ups make you feel like a badass after doing them. However, pull-ups are also hard as hell, especially if you’re just getting started.…
