27 Dec: So You're Saying that Nutrition is Almost Always the Answer?

Yeap, that’s exactly what I’m sayin’… Reality is that all the exercise in the world won’t out train bad eating habits and patterns. If you eat too much of the wrong things, your workout will not compensate for the caloric intake.

Meaning your metabolism may slow down, preventing you from losing weight even with exercise. It’s your body’s way of trying to keep you alive. I call it “survival mode”.

If improving your fitness and health has been on the back of your mind, chances are you know something needs to improve. Our minds may play tricks on us but our bodies SURE DON’T.
