What is Flow?
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined the term flow and published the work, "Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience"
Defined by Csikszentmihalyi, Flow is:
“A state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.”
What Roles Do Ketosis and Fasting Play in Flow?
Siim Land uses a ketogenic diet and different types of fasting to enhance focus. For Siim, he functions better in ketosis. The combination of a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting reduces Siim's decision fatigue and enables him to get more done without being influenced by hunger or excessive food choice.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
