Is Your Nutrition Nutritious?

Do ever feel like you’re in a rut? Maybe not seeing as much change as you did a year ago, two years ago? It might be nutrition. This is a BIG world with a vast spectrum that experts swear they “have the answer.” The problem with that is that we are all different with different hormonal responses and metabolism. I had a professor in college that had a doctor friend that specialized in metabolism for over 30 years, and he said he didn’t know anything about metabolism… that’s how complex it is… that’s how complex you are! haha. Just look at how different men and women are.  Think about the good ol’ 2000 calorie diet from the AHA has. Well, a 15 year old girl is not going to have the same hormonal response that a 300lb football player has. My dad a while back stopped eating cookies for a month and that’s it. He didn’t change anything else but realized he was eating too many so he stopped and lost 18 pounds! Don’t tell him I told you. But, in my opinion, there isn’t a one fit all and answer for all. I respect the heck out of Gaskins. He’s done different diets plans, commits to them, and experiments what works best for him. Diet, in itself, is a Greek prefix meaning “Way of Life.” We’ve corrupted that word of something that is starvation and deprivation, but really we are all on a “diet,” in our own way of life that we choose. Sometimes it’s good to experiment and change something like Gaskins and see what works best for you. See if it improves your overall energy throughout the day, even your attitude.  I tried Paleo one time and I was a grumpy shmuck. It wasn’t for me. I also tried GOMAD once (DONT RECOMEND!). It’s A Gallon Of Mild A Day. All I gotta say is I hope you have access to a bathroom 24/7. It was suppose to help give you crazy strength gains, and it kinda did, but just wasn’t worth it. It was an interesting month. So try something and if it doesn’t work, throw it out and try something else. Do know a nutritional change does take time, so give it that at the very least. There is million and one resources out there too so be weary about some of the information out there because when I say vast, it seems never ending. You’ll hear one person say something is the best, and another say that is bad for you. I read once a “study” was done that said vitamins cause cancer. What!? They made a statistical analysis that wasn’t good for the average person. You see there methods in there study and they have people that were exposed to asepsis and high levels of vitamin E which is not a good combo, so they claim and label ALL vitamins cause cancer. That’s the things about statistical analyses, they can be made to claim anything the person making the study wants to show. The correlation part of it only means that there is a relationship there. Whether it is significant or not significant has to be determined by the reader, you. Coming back to my point, you are different, so so should your nutrition also be.

Tomorrow’s three little workouts are because we have had a couple tough workouts back to back, so we’re keeping it light and with some good ol’ calisthenics.
