The importance of a proper diet.

Today is a cardio-only day for me: just 20 minutes of LISS cardio – that’s almost a literal walk in the park.

My first two workouts of the week (back & biceps on Monday and chest & triceps on Tuesday) have gone extremely well. I’ve been ratcheting up the intensity levels of my workouts each week, so I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the high amount of energy my new cutting diet is providing me. That energy is really helping my performance in the gym.

Speaking of my cutting diet, I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’m eating nothing but 100% unprocessed, whole foods. I was reminded by my friend Chris (1FastGTX) that Egg Beaters are a processed food (albeit very minimally processed – some natural coloring and vitamins). Just to keep things “all natural”, I’m going to replace the Egg Beaters with pure egg whites, which I love just as much as Egg Beaters anyway. Of course protein powder is also a processed food, but that’s the only way to make protein powder. It’s not like it grows on a vine… 🙂

Semantics aside, I have to say that I’ve never felt better than I do right now. This is literally the cleanest my diet has ever been in my life, and it’s making a big impact in every area: I always feel satiated, my energy levels are high, my performance in the gym has been outstanding, I’m losing fat and keeping my muscle and I feel strong and healthy.

I can’t overstate the importance of a proper diet. Your diet should be the #1 priority, regardless of your goals.

With that, I’m off to do my cardio and eat. Have a great day!
