Show Notes

Achieving and maintaining a lean physique is much simpler than the diet and fitness industries might want you to believe. Scott applies the principle of Occam’s Razor to illustrate the point.

 

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

-Albert Einstein

Occam’s Razor:

  1. A philosophical principle that says that the simplest solution tends to be the correct one.
  2. The more assumptions that must be made, the less likely an explanation.
  • People who eat mostly plants tend to be leaner, which should be simple and easy to understand.
  • People often ask questions to get answers that support their current beliefs.
  • Correct solutions may disagree with those beliefs, and there’s a tendency not to listen to different opinions, regardless how simple or correct they may be.
  • “Clinically tested” doesn’t mean “clinically proven”.
  • Cultures that have historically had the longest life spans consume a high percentage of carbs in their diets.
  • Complicated ideas abound in the fitness and diet industry when the best eating strategies are simple.
  • Choose the goal, then choose the sacrifices required to achieve the goal.
  • Expectations often exceed the efforts [a person’s willing to make to achieve them.]
