“You Can’t Outtrain A Bad Diet”

“You can’t out train a bad diet,” is such a popular statement in the bodybuilding, exercising, and nutritional world. 

While diet is extremely important, I feel that with everything a balanced approach is the best way to see results.

Your area of focus – is it diet? Or cardio? Or weight training? For the best results, I wholeheartedly recommend that you apply all three to your life. 

Pretend it’s a triangle: you’ve got 3 legs and one leg is cardio, the other is weight-training, and the final leg is diet. They should be equal to each other and focused on with the same passion and enthusiasm.

I said my points on the general aspect of a balanced life and now it’s time to focus on diet for this post, as that is the purpose of this message today.

Diet! While part of the statement is true, “You can’t out train a bad diet,” the fact of the matter is that you simply need to be burning more calories than you are eating if you are losing weight and eating more if you are trying to gain weight.

Diving into all of the different variables to take into consideration of a good diet and exercise plan isn’t something I will do today, but at a later time.

As for today, I want you to know that it is very easy to not exactly count your calories but to just be mindful of how much you’re putting into your body. It will be important that you cut out sugary drinks and empty calories, as you continue to fill those calories with whole foods. 

Thanks for reading. If you want more dieting information, I will begin posting new nutritional content every Wednesday. My future posts will consistently get a little in depth as I go on with this series.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your story is inspiring for those living with Crohn’s and Colitis. As a Registered Dietitian, I work with many clients like yourself. Let me know if you’d like to set up a time to talk about your nutrition. I meet with many clients via Skype, and the first consultation is always free! Have a great day!

    1. Thanks! I actually got my Crohn’s in remission, but if you ever want to do a google hangout to promote your blog and talk about diet and exercise, and Crohn’s of course then let me know.
