These 5 Minutes Will Change Your Day

Today I wanted to give you the #1 exercise that will give you your summer body.

Then I thought… well how about 3 foods that activate your metabolism?

Both of them I decided not to do and wanted to focus on 2 breathing techniques to decrease stress in your life in less than 45 seconds.

All of these topics fall short to this weeks message – knowing if you dedicate 5 minutes every day to journaling it will change your life forever.

This week I share a message with you on why journaling will change your life and how it has made massive impact in my life.

Finding Something Bigger than “You”…

Almost a year ago I was interviewed by my dear friend Joumana Kidd . If you haven’t seen this interview check it out for 2 reasons.

1. I give my #1 guilty pleasure located in my home town of Fairhaven, MA and….

2. I get to share my faith very openly bc of the safe environment Joumana creates.

My favorite part is when I make Joumana and the whole crew close their eyes and meditate, after only a minute the whole set was “Reset”.

I share for the first time why I gave up playing football in high school, realizing in the moment a huge insecurity I had based off of Joumana’s question (btw – Joumana, you are the Queen of excellent questions).

After watching it again just now, I’m amazed with how much growth can happen in less than a year. The new relationships I’ve made, even some friends that have grown distant that I want to make more of an attempt to strengthen. As I launch my new #‎8DaysAWeek performance supplement line this summer, I realized that the beginning of the creation w/ co-thinker Olaseni Bello was born during this interview.

How I reference my Mum, my first coach of movement, as I always do and how in less than a year she has reinvented herself… #‎MumsKitchen – so proud of you Mum.

Also on this interview I get to honor and share memories and moments of my mentor Uncle Joe which always brings me to happy tears.

Who I am hasn’t changed after only one year, but I certainly have grown, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. For me looking back for a second and gaining perspective provides me the power of progress. Often times I can get caught up in “what’s next” which makes me feel excited for a moment but then I feel “less than” for several minutes too long and that never feels good…

Instead of making a “to-do list” I now make a, “what I’ve done list” and I feel good, better yet, I feel great!!

If you’ve read to this point, which is a miracle in today’s quick culture and immediate results of 15 seconds or less, then I’m certain of 2 things:

1. That you can relate with me on some level, even care about the path I’m walking, I’m humble & grateful for that.

2. Since you’ve made it this far, what’s another few minutes… excited that you are going to watch the interview, bc I guarantee at least one big idea that you’ll take from it will help guide your week of wellness.

5 Tips on How To Improve Digestion & Use Food for Energy

While in Paris – my friend and I are enjoying an excellent omelette with veggies. In less than 5 minutes – my friend finishes and has to go directly to the restroom. #coachingmoment

When my friend returns, I continue our conversation and they start to notice (because their face is finally not buried in the plate) that in between each bite I’m putting my fork down. I comment on how good our meal tastes and they soon realize that they didn’t have much of an opinion on the taste because they inhaled the meal. Then they asked, why do I need to go to the restroom directly after my first bite?

There could be multiple answers for this one, but the first diagnosis is to slow down.

Here are my top 5 Tips on How To Improve Digestion & Use Food for Fuel. 

1. Chew slow to eat slow – when you bite your cheek or your tongue it’s usually because you are treating your food like a race. Start with 10 chews to every bite, build to 20 and slow each one down.

2. Smaller utensils – while in Paris I find that all the utensils are smaller… which forces me to eat slower and eat less.

3. Put down your small utensils – between each bite put it down, look around, benefit: taste your food.

4. Dim the lights – bring about a sense of calm while you dine… studies show that if you can calm your body and brain – you can slow down your eating.

5. Mix it up – use your non dominant hand or chopsticks to intentionally slow down. When you complete your meal you will feel energized vs tired.

Remember to Eat well, Eat for Energy.

1 Minute of Real & Raw Motivation

Coming live from the production studio of Luc Besson’s Valerian, directly after an early morning with Valerian himself, my client and friend Dane Dehaan.

People want the life of an actor or athlete but they rarely see the sacrifices they make – like 5am pickups, 18-hour days, being far away from their significant other or family, missing Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthday parties, the big game, etc.

This week I define the difference between the high performers I have the privilege to work with and the dreamers that don’t take action.

As your Coach I’d like to give you a homework assignment this week. What are the 3 most important reasons you move?

Here are My Reasons:
1. So I Don’t Get Tired
2. So I Don’t Get Tired
3. So I Don’t Get Tired

Because in my book, fatigue is failure and energy is everything!

[Insider Tip] The most successful people eat like this

When you’re at the top of your game — or you’re trying to get there — you’re always on the go. And when you’re on the go, sometimes you give up control. You let the day take you and use being busy as an excuse to skip even the most fundamental basic self care.

I talk to people all the time who go hours on end without eating. Either you don’t make time for it, or you’re skipping meals under the guise of making “healthy” choices when the only options around you are junk. Whatever the reason, you’re not getting fuel in your body, and that’s a problem.

How do you expect your body to keep going and your wheels to keep spinning? You can’t perform at your best when you’re running on fumes. You may think you’re saving time, but what you’re actually doing is breaking down. Top performers plan ahead.

This week’s Coaching Conversation covers how you can take control of planning your food intake to fuel your best work. If you want to keep going strong, you’ve got to keep your fire stoked #8DaysAWeek.

Cheers with water,

P.S. Your body needs fuel. It isn’t optional. Stop fooling yourself – you can’t do your best work or stay energetic and alert without it.

#1 Way to Raise Your Metabolism Tomorrow Morning


How many of you think you eat well (most of time)?  You could be following the regimen of eating six times throughout a day, a low-carb diet, a gluten-free diet, or you’re vegetarian or vegan. Some of you may be thinking, that none of those apply to me—and I just eat what I eat when I am in the mood for it at the time. And, that’s okay too (for now).

I think we can all attest that the concept of eating well is not new, but has been defined in so many different ways that for a regular person it can lead to confusion and even sometimes mistrust of what is true and what is not.

Although we will get into many conversations on different approaches to nourishing your body, the one theme will always stay true—food is thy medicine.

This concept will never be disproven—as it is the holy grail of nutrition. I know everyone has heard that you are what you eat; however, what I would like to add is it’s not always just about the food. There are many other questions that people forgot to ask in between that can increase your metabolism, energy and hydration at the least.

Did I mention I am a big time foodie! I honestly LOVE to eat! This is why as a coach and nutritional consultant this topic is so important to me—not only to educate people of the good, bad and ugly about nutrition, but also help those of you who need a bit more encouragement to understand that you can still eat well and eat incredible food

Watch this week’s FYCblog to learn a vital tip on how to increase your metabolism first thing tomorrow morning.  

Cheers with Water,

Coach Adam Cobb

What Is Chlorella?

Our previous post mentions Chlorella as one of the ingredients in Pure Greens. Several have asked, “What is Chlorella?” and that’s a good question to ask! It’s always a good idea to check into the ingredients of the food preparations we eat. We sometimes ignore those hard to pronounce ingredients at our peril. The good news is, although Chlorella may look hard to pronounce it really isn’t (Klor-Ella) and it really is a great source of good nutrition.
