Alright?

Alright, IST.
Anyone try this out? Im spending way too much time doing bullshit on my phone and consooming streaming shit. I'm thinking its time for a shift.
tl;dr - commit to doing nothing but working, lifting/cardio, reading and meditating for one week. no junk food, no internet, no phone, no tv, nothing stimulating and satisfying beyond the allowed tasks

    I tried this a few years ago. Felt really good. After one week you definitely feel freer from these stimulations. Feels weird to eat without watching or listening to anything at first.

    I think the most delicate part will be the reintroduction of habits once the 7 days are over. You underestimate the bad ones because you had time to grow independant from them. But you'll get back to your bad habits faster than you think without strict rules.

      I think the trickiest part will be the phone use. I work from home so I'll simply unplug my router after work and turn on airplane mode for the phone, but I use my phone to track workouts, and have to use it for my second job to manage customers. Fortunately I only do the second job 2 nights a week, so and once I do the customer thing, my phone goes away.

        You might want to think about using a notepad to track your workouts for this week and insert that habit again after the week is done. It's gonna be a huge temptation between sets.

          I was just thinking that. I'll bring my headphones in too, though so I won't hear the music playing in the gym.
          I'll use my phone for cardio though since it tracks my steps, I can use the timer, and can track my pace. I'll just set it to airplane mode so I won't be able to do anything else

        I work from home too. How do you deal with notifications? I don't use my phone that much but it's always besides me in case I receive a mail, or a client answer etc. This inevitably leads to always be on the lookout/waiting for a notification. Maybe the scheduled notification delivery on iPhone is good but I could miss important messages or job offers.

          I mean my phone notifications are fortunately not for client matters. My workstation just has Teams, Slack and email and I turn off all notifications and set aside a block of time to handle customer communications. Nothing is ever so urgent that needs to be answered immediately.

    Try it, this is definitely not a thing you are going to regret whatever you make of it after 7 days

    Bumping and asking a follow up question:
    Guide says to do a 45:30:25 macro split, but that would leave me with 350g protein a day. That's fucking crazy and unnecessary, right?

        Not since the cost of food went up, no. Im trying to eat only food and no supplements (aside from creatine and ZMA) so I don't want to be chugging whey all day.

      I would limit it depending on how strong and how frequently you take it. I'll be continuing to take caffeine purely as part of a fat loss stack in the morning.

      What if i enjoy reading a book?

      I like reading too. The point is to remove the most immediately stimulating experiences. Unless you're reading porn or manga, you theoretically shouldn't be getting a spike of dopamine as severe as playing vidya
