#EatClean and #TrainDirty
As individuals who “live” fitness, it is pretty safe to assume that if one works out then one eats healthy right? Well, that’s not always the case. If you hit the gym on a regular basis and put in an all-out workout, that’s awesome. If you effectively follow it up by filling yourself with high calories and trans fats, then you’ve just ruined it! As elite trainer Alex Hoplyakov told me, “You can not out exercise a bad diet”.
How then can you keep up with a strict exercise routine while consuming less calories, or a healthier diet? You can obtain your protein through meat, fish, or a well blended protein shake. Instead of going out to your local fast food place or frying your beef, fish, or chicken… grill it. For an extra source of those proteins, try snacking on natural almonds throughout the day. Avoid sugary snacks like candy bars and replace those items with fruits. Believe it or not there are some great tasting potato chips out there and they are a lot healthier than the normal bag of Ruffles. Look in your local health section and give them a try. Count your calories to keep yourself on track! Remember to #EatClean and #TrainDirty because you can never out exercise a bad diet!
