Tony Robbins’s Diet

Summary

Robbins is a proponent of the ‘Fit for Life’ diet created by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. This diet focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits, particularly ones that have a high water content. It is low on meat and animal products including dairy. Robbins believes that seventy percent of your intake should come from ‘live’ foods, ones containing mostly water. Food combining is another important component of this diet, such as eating fruit on an empty stomach and not eating proteins with carbohydrates. Robbins backed off eating fish exclusively after discovering dangerously high levels of heavy metals in his blood.

Estimated Macros

  • Low Protein (Plant-based or Fish) 15% 15%
  • Medium Fat 30% 30%
  • High Quality Carb 55% 55%

Tony Robbins’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Aerobic Energy Gives You Power

Robbins says aerobic exercise is critical for health and energy.

If you’re just starting out, Robbins recommends 30 minutes of aerobic exercise such as walking, running, swimming, biking, etc., 3-5 times per week.

Know Your Ideal Heart Rate

You want to hit your target training zone, which is 180 minus your age.

Keep It Interesting

Robbins advises mixing things up, changing your environment, listening to music, or meeting up with friends to motivate yourself to stick with it.

HIIT It Hard

Not surprisingly, Robbins doesn’t have a ton of time to workout, and so he squeezes a high-intensity workout into just 15 minutes.

Remember to Breathe

Oxygen is essential to good health and remaining calm. Robbins uses a technique called ‘power breathing’: Inhale for a count of 1; hold your breath for a count of 4; exhale for a count of 2.

Tony Robbins’s Lifestyle

Manage Your Mind

Robbins believes directing your thoughts is as important to good health as any exercise regimen. He schedules time into his day to assess his thoughts and feelings.

Stop the Poisoning

Robbins believes that the average diet is highly acidic and poisoning our body. He wants us all to become aware of what we’re putting into our body and mind, detox, and empower ourselves to take back control.

Move!

Robbins strongly supports moving around regularly. This is especially important if you have a desk job, which is a lot of us.

Align Your Body

Poor posture or misalignment affects your health and your mood. Massage, chiropractic and at-home stretches can all provide structural support to keep you feeling your best, physically and mentally.

Cleanse

Robbins is a proponent of colonics. He is also a fan of diaphragmatic breathing, rebounding on a mini-trampoline, dry brushing, lymphatic massage and fasting.

{

Robbins on Achieving

Begin to live as though your prayer are already answered.

{

Robbins on Failure

Failure is often necessary for real learning to occur.

{

Robbins on Gratitude

When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
