Everyday I spend at the gym, is another day I get asked what someone should eat in order to see results. Now, I am no nutritionist, I only took one nutrition course in college. That being said, I know what is good to eat and whats not good to eat. I know that if you eat less than you work off, then your body has some excess energy and no where to put it but down in the basement for storage, and no one wants a cluttered basement. I also know that if you burn off more than you eat, than your body is going to have to empty some of that basement clutter, and sell it on Craig’s list to come up with the money it needs. When it comes to nutrition, we can either make it very complicated, turning our meals into the enormous mathematical homework equations that were the death of me, or we can think of our kitchen as a gas station.
For the sake of this article I am going to pretend we all have Ferraris, some of you might even have a Ferrari. Now, if we want our Ferrari to perform correctly, we better be pressing that premium button on the far right, and paying the extra dollar for gas. The reason being, by using premium gas, our Ferraris will be able to perform to the best of their ability. They may still be able to perform on a less expensive, lower quality of fuel, but the performance will be hindered. The higher quality the fuel, the higher quality the performance.
Our bodies are our Ferrari’s, and if we want them to perform then we better be willing to supply them with the highest quality, nutrient dense foods. Eating correctly can be turned into rocket science, but at its core its a simple choice between the healthy and unhealthy choice. We are all familiar with this moral dilemma, and I am here to tell you if you find yourself having to justify a food to yourself, its the wrong choice. Make the right choices my friends and family, its the first step towards the results you are looking for!
