Nutrition

NutritionYou are what you eat.  You have probably heard this phrase a lot, but that doesn’t mean it’s not 100% true.  While getting fit conjures up images of exercise and endless hours at the gym, the real source of fitness is found in the kitchen.  You can work out until you pass out from exhaustion but if you don’t bring the same commitment to your diet as you do to your exercise, you’re not going to get anywhere.

Similar to exercise, this is another area where everybody seems to have a strong opinion.  There are a million “definitive” (and often contradicting) methods out there like Paleo, Atkins, South Beach, etc. and it’s pretty damn confusing as to what you should do.  Couple that with the fact that this is one of the hardest areas to stay firm on when you have a family – when everybody stops at McDonalds after soccer practice, what are you to do?  When you get home late from work, who feels like cooking? – and it may seem impossible to get under control.

With all that being said, two words:  Don’t Worry.  It’s actually not that daunting and it can be done.  There are some basic principles which you can employ which will go a long way to getting you on track, and you always have options, even at McDonalds.  I’ll discuss all of that here, and hopefully it can help you like it’s helped me.
