This past year I started
1. Intermittent fasting
2. Tracking Macros/Micronutrients using Cronometer(get this app!)
3. Taking cold showers

I played music my whole life, studied it in college, toured, gigged, cowrote for singer songwriters. Have perfect relative pitch so I can transcribe most any melody, chord progression I hear(Jazz and some more complex music takes me a while longer).

I've always struggled with severe inattentive ADHD and have had a strange perfectionism/depression thing going on that kept me from recording and finishing my own music. I struggled to play rhythmically tight in sessions, and I had acid reflux that would destroy my voice after 2 songs. Chronic joint pain slowed me down as well.

At 28 years old, my ADHD is gone along with my joint pain, depression. My sense of rhythm is 10x better in 3 months, my voice is better. I'm 45lbs lighter and have more muscle mass(almost have abs). Best of all, I'm finishing music I wrote and my creative process is much faster as well as the depth of my a ability to learn.

I wish I made these lifestyle changes 10 years ago. My career would have gone a completely different direction.

Guys, don't wait. Make lifestyle changes today. Your health is everything. It will effect your musicality, human interaction(potential opportunities), family and your enjoyment of life in general.
