Nutrition can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be. When I first starteed working out and becoming healthier, I concentrated completely on calories and fat. So, if the calories and fat were less in a Fiber One bar than some fruit and or chicken, I’d eat the bar. My focus was so narrow, and though well intentioned, completely misguided. I feel like people are overwhelmed trying to make the right choices and why wouldn’t you be? There’s so many books, sites, diets, ideas, science and “science” out there claiming they’re the right way to get healthy. It can be overwhelming. Well, listen up brothers and sisters because I’m gonna break it down like an 80s kid in a track suit with a piece of cardboard: eat shit your recognize . So what does that mean? If you can confidently tell me where on earth it came from and the answer isn’t “a lab” then eat that shit. If it would rot in a week or less when left on your counter-eat that shit. If it does not have a marketing campaign-say it with me this time-eat that shit! Those simple rules will keep processed foods out of your diet and keep in the stuff your great grandmother would consider food.
