Flow, Grow, Diet

Hacking Athletic and Creative Performance

KStarr interviews Steven Kotler about the Flow state, or being in the Zone. If you’ve never heard of the flow state this interview is as good a place as any to start. If you’re like me and you think you know about flow, listen to the interview to learn how much you don’t know. Late in the interview Kelly asks if nutrition can help get you in the Flow. Unfortunately, Steven says, there’s no magic bullet. The Flow is a high energy state so good nutrition and sleep hygiene is important. However, if you do manage to get into the Flow or Zone, dark chocolate can help keep you there longer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgVCqgplsOA More at www.stevenkotler.com and flowgenomeproject.com

  1. Not eating enough
  2. Not sleeping enough
  3. Training to heavy
  4. Not training hard enough

There you have it. Thanks Ron.
