Respond not react. Mental toughness isn’t about fighting against hard situations, thoughts, or feelings. It's not about making them go away, either. It’s about creating the space in which to hold them and see them clearly—so you can respond wisely instead of reacting rashly.

A year is simply the amount of time the earth takes to go around the sun. It says nothing of human biology. Age really *IS* just a number. Biology is distinct from chronology. Healthy habits matter. A lot. -Move your body often. -Don't eat crap. -Make time for friends.

What is in Warren Buffett's advice to recent grads: -Be kind. -Be humble. -Develop your ethics and stick to them. -Be honest. -Be respectful. What is NOT in it: -Move fast and break things. -Focus on making money. -Networking. -Personal brand.

Perhaps single most important characteristic for high quality work and emotional satisfaction is caring. You’ve got to CARE about what you do. And yet, caring is risky. The things you care about—well, they eventually break your heart. The highs are high and the lows are low.

That's just a stock photo! My best bread comes from Firebrand bakery in Oakland, CA! I assume PB&J has fueled some of your championships?

The crossfit vs. running vs. cycling vs. triathlon vs. lifting battles are all pretty dumb. All have their problems. But all also share an important and common good: Follow a well-designed and ethical program and you’ll probably grow—physically and psychologically.

Pro tip: peanut butter and jelly. Pre workout; post workout; even during workout. Simple. Cheap. Effective. Top notch combination of nutrients and emotional satisfaction delivers a high-performance punch. I'm not sure anything beats it. (Especially if it's on good bread.)

I stand by my original tweet. I hope this explanation helps. And no, I have no investments in (nor am I receiving funds from) "Big PB&J."

If your goal is athletic performance and you are freaking out about PB&J: -You are probably limiting your potential -The amount of stress freaking out about this is probably worse for your performance than any nutritional choice you make -You are missing out on a great sandwich

With that out of the way...If your goal is weight loss and you are not exercising very hard, then eating tons of PB&J isn't a good idea. Of course not!! But depriving yourself is not a good idea either. A diet of tinned tuna and skim milk (as some suggested) probably backfires.

On the contrary, the evidence suggests that HURT performance. The number of weeks it takes for the diet to "work" seems to be N + 1—where N is the length of the latest the latest study that shows ketogenic diets negatively impact athletic performance.

The approach may work REALLY WELL for specific conditions (e.g., type 2 diabetes) or as a way to restrict calories for weight loss (merely by restricting food options). But there is simply NO evidence these diets work for peak athletic performance. None.
