One of the trainers at my gym today was trying to jump rope….. WHILE STANDING ON A MEDICINE BALL. As he was doing this, another one of the trainers was taking photos of him. And these people have master’s degrees

Nutrition EDU

There was so much information that I now have to split into multiple post

The same questions come back over and over again so I wanted to make an EDU about it. Feel free to add a comment or PM me if there are mistakes or stuff to add. I might add links to some resources or to my sources, just ask for it and I’ll look it up and add it. If there are terms you don’t understand, use Google and Wikipedia, this crazy website for geeks () THEN ask questions.

A huge influence on your progress will be your nutrition. Training is usually the one thing people talk about but nutrition is almost always overlooked. People know how many miles per gallon their car does, but now how much cals they have to eat to maintain their weight. Some people can get amazing results in spite of what they’re doing (eating, training, etc). We shouldn’t try to do what they do. Genetics doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it, it means that you’ll have to work harder to get it. Part of being what you want to be is doing stuff you don’t really want to do.

It’s also not necessary to get some food every 2-3 hours. As long as you’re getting at least 3-4 “feedings” (both meals and snacks) everyday, it’s fine. Continue reading Nutrition EDU
