1. Research your own experience.
2. Absorb what is useful.
3. Reject what is useless.
4. Add what is specifically your own.

1. Apply the Principle of Specificity to maximize efficiency.

For the most efficient results, you need to match the details of your program to your main training goal. Although I don’t have a lot of skills in this world, this is one that I believe I am very good at, and that I can help you integrate into your training/nutrition program. Upon completion of a thorough assessment process, we can design targeted strategies based off of research and real world practical experience in order to give you the best shot at success.

2. Take an Essentialist approach to the process.

After that, it’s all about execution. We’ll streamline the process down to the highest-level steps that produce 90% of the results; hack away the unessential and irrelevant, automate consistent action by instilling good habits; and then test, assess, refine, and customize your plan based on individual progress and feedback.

This 1-2 punch has been so helpful in my fitness career, both as an athlete and as a coach, that it has positively permeated out into other areas of my life – business goals, personal finances, lifestyle philosophy, etc. I hope it does the same for you. And yes, realizing it is a bit too boring, nerdy, and strategic; I try to offset it with the occasional carefree bourbon blitz, and lots of childish humor.

After 3 months following one of Nate’s nutrition plans I have shed a significant amount of body fat. I have to say, I have never looked better, and more importantly, felt better and more alert and energetic in my life. The most important part is how easy the plan was to integrate into my hectic schedule — long hours, business travel, etc. Nate understands how athletes work and think, as well as the thought processes of the highly Type A professional. I cannot recommend Nate’s book enough. He is superb.

As a physician who has undergone the rigors of medical training, I know what it means to endure and be consistent. But after years of trying various fitness programs, including professional training, I was not satisfied with the results. When I started training with Nate Miyaki, I realized that persistence is not enough. I needed the RIGHT kind of focus and nutritional knowledge to back up the training. Nate has shown me how to combine subtle variations in the workouts with a primary focus on nutritional modifications to get results. His understanding of human physiology – and its response to varying stimuli — flows from him intuitively. Now, 48-years old, I’m in the best shape of my life. My patients and their families keep telling me how healthy and youthful I look. Many have told me that I inspire them to take better care of themselves.

Nate Miyaki is one of the most honest nutritionists in the industry. He doesn’t go for fads or crazes—just real and long-term results. His approach is healthy and sustainable, and I trust his advice completely.
