My Daily Nutrition
WRITTEN BY Jesse O'Brien

I’m typically hesitant to share my daily nutrition, not because I care whether people know the details of my health routine, but because I think this is a problem endemic to the fitness industry. A coach, athlete, or fitness model describes exactly what they do or eat on a daily basis, and then people start duplicating this. Emulating someone else comes from a good place. “Heck, if it is good for them, then it must be good for me!” However, this is a logical fallacy. We are all unique and thus need a tailored approach to fitness, due to:

One of my top priorities is health and fitness. I shifted from corporate America to the health and fitness industry. I have forged an identity out of being an intelligent, knowledgeable, fit, and healthy individual who can guide people  effectively towards their goal. My habits are likely unnecessary for others, as they will not have the desired effect and have been personalized for me through decades of experience and professional guidance. However, over the years I have accumulated what I consider axioms. These are my “big rocks” and habits that I do not sway from:
