Despite the popular belief surrounding this notion.
You can’t out-train consistently bad nutritional choices.
Many will disagree with this, yet upon careful observation of their health, performance and finally aesthetic we can often come to some striking conclusions.
The main one being that they’re steeped in cognitive dissonance.
This doesn’t mean you need to be some sort of nutrition monk, there is still plenty of wiggle room, however you’ll rarely find people at the top of their game who eat terrible quality foods.
Teenagers and the genetically super-elite seem to mystify many.
They seem to circumvent this idea that poor nutrition leads to poor performance, obesity and generally bad health.
Until they’re about 26 that is.
Quality of food matters, if someone says it doesn’t, run.
Run away as fast as you can because they’re clearly infected with some form of madness because no logically sane person would believe otherwise.
Unless they want to because of deep emotional needs.
You see most people are emotionally attached to their food.
Unwilling to give any poor choices away, they fight tooth and nail for their creature comforts and mental crutches, even if detrimental to long term heath, many won’t be told.
Personally I think that’s fair enough, we can leave them to it.
We can try hard to help people, to educate and inspire, however some just don’t want to change.
They’d rather weight until the wheels have fallen off the wagon completely – diabetes, obesity, or plenty of other health issues linked with poor nutrition and excess body fat, you take your pick.
While body positive mantra that everyone is beautiful is one to support 100%, there is no compromise to condone or support that which leads to poor health.
You’d be hard pressed to find many people at 300lbs with a fat mass percentage of 40%+ that is the paragon of health.
Now this is not to say being super lean or addicted to fitness and your aesthetic does much for your health either.
Many sacrifice their health for how they look, on either rend of the scale.
For a society of people who talk about health, we’re a poor example of it.
Go to the Dr’s and get drugs, it’s easier than lifestyle change.
Here are a couple of simple things to remember:
– Excess body fat means you have a calorie surplus problem
– Poor health often follows poor quality food choices
– Too late is too late, once some damage is done it can’t be fixed
Not what many want to hear.
I’m sure all the excuses about medical conditions, a hard life and the kitchen sink will come out, however that’s little more than a crutch to lean on.
Like it or not, your health is in your hands.
If you know your nutrition could be better, then why isn’t it?
Almost everyone knows they could sharpen things up, yet they don’t.
They make excuses instead.
So many well intentioned words.
So many are also utter bullshit.
Things people say just for the sake of saying them, it’s rather irritating really and each time I personally hear something akin to this I find the respect level’s I have for said culprit diminish.
If you on the other hand are honest abut simply not caring, well that I can respect.
Words for the sake of words, not so much.
It does make me wonder why people would fudge things so blatantly with classics such as: “I would eat better if I had more time to prep food.” or something equally steeped in their mouth turds.
People, if you don’t want to do something then be honest about it as opposed to trying to say the right things.
Most wouldn’t care if you told the truth anyway.
Chances are it would stun them in to silence as opposed to how they’ve gone Vegan and how good for you it is.
Does the above applies to you because it’s worth mulling over.
My good people, do me the kindness of answering this with nothing other than pure honesty.
If your nutrition could be better, then why isn’t it?
