Fit for life: I was wrong

After an old bodybuilding photo from 1998 came out last week, I started discussing the details of competition preparation for a friend and told him all the hard work and dedication it took to get there.

All the hardest workouts, the craziest and most restrictive diet you could ever imagine.

He asked me if I could do it again.

I told him I could and I could do it better than I did in those days, because I know more and have evolved a lot since then. I told him I wouldn’t do it because I would have to completely restructure my training routine and devote a lot of time to getting ready for something like this.

Then I started thinking about all the changes I’ve made since then, all the mistakes I’ve made during those days, and how I’ve been misled into thinking I’m a picture of health.

Let’s go back 24 years, and list what I thought was healthy and the reasons why I was wrong.

I owned a microwave at the time, and now I won’t eat or consume anything that has been heated or thawed in one.

Anything cooked in the microwave tastes bad. Portions are still cold, some are hot, and everything tastes like rubber.

This is due to the electromagnetic radiation used to provide heat. This also spoils and kills most of the live nutrients in your food, so you are eating nutritious food like cardboard, and if you reheat it with plastic, this causes xenoestrogens from the plastic to leak into your food, so now you’re eating nutrient deficient food loaded with the toxic estrogen .

Not a good thing!!

I now use a stovetop and stainless steel cookware. It takes the same amount of time as a microwave and it will taste better for you.

I was making two more mistakes: eating cheap tuna out of the can and using artificial sweeteners.

See, the mentality was high protein/reduce extra calories.

I never thought about the BPAs in the can, the high levels of mercury in tuna, or the toxic nature of sweeteners. Now, I never consume any canned goods, artificial sweeteners, or tuna.

Buying fresh foods is more beneficial because the food is live, as are the nutrients and enzymes our bodies need for growth and repair, and to keep our immune system strong. I also eat only wild-caught fish, such as salmon, curly fish, sea bass, halibut, and cod.

Large fish such as tuna, swordfish and mako sharks carry a higher concentration of toxins (mercury) due to their position in the food chain, which has been shown to cause neurological disorders and problems with cognitive function, so it is best to eat less. fish. Sardines, mackerel and anchovies are the healthiest, but not on everyone’s platforms as tasty.

Regarding sweeteners, not many people know about the health risks, so I won’t repeat this topic.

Another big mistake was buying meat and other foods from supermarkets.

You know those who sell tires and food in the same store.

When you pay discounted prices, you get shoddy items, period. The larger the scale, the lower the quality.

think about it. Can a small organic farmer take care of 100 animals, which equals 1500 animals?? of course not. Is food on a 2,500-person cruise ship as good as a small local restaurant for 30 people?

Again the answer is no. I’ve learned over the years that it’s rare to find a discount on quality items, from food to gadgets.

Therefore, I buy my food only from high-quality markets, and I eat only meat and poultry from grass-fed farms. It is good for you, the young farmers and the environment.

I’ve also subscribed to the fat-free obsession, eating fat-free yogurt, ice cream, good snacks, and baked potato chips.

I now know that anything with a label that says: fat free / no sugar / rich in vitamins / low in calories / high in fiber is more processed trash than marketed.

When you eat something canned, the fewer ingredients the better, and if you can’t read the label, don’t eat it.

Better than cheap fillers and put-down chemicals, fat lowers the glycemic index of foods, making them more sustainable and available for breakdown in the body as nutrients.

Therefore, when they process yogurt by removing fat, and add fruit with high-fructose corn syrup, it makes it a high-glycemic food, making the consumer fatter and fatter, more insulin-resistant, and closer to obesity and diabetes.

Not an ideal place for you.

Eat snacks with ingredients you can read like peanuts/dates/salt (Lara & Rx bar) or potatoes/salt/oil (real organic chips).

Less is better, and you’ll see and feel the difference.

At that time, obesity and other diseases were less than half as prevalent as they are today.

I made these changes as soon as I learned the difference, and here I am, 24 years later, healthier, fitter and with more stamina than ever before.

My blood labs were perfect, which leads me to believe I am right about these things.

Remember people, knowledge is power, and it took a lot of education and research to discover these things.

Now I am giving it to you directly, in a concentrated form so you can apply it to your daily routine.

I hope you find this information useful.

For your health and wellness,
