The above picture was captured from a friend of mine in a Men’s Health magazine. I like it because it does a good job of illustrating just how hard it is to out-train a poor diet. More importantly it shows what a vicious cycle a poor diet can become when it bleeds over to other aspects of our lives and becomes this inescapable vortex.

Try to remember this the next time you’re thinking about grabbing that waffle for breakfast or even if you’re thinking about starving yourself. Keep in mind there that sometimes not eating can be just as harmful as eating the wrong thing because not eating can also raise stress hormones and cause metabolic issues as a result.

The best way I’ve found to combat this is to start the day off with a healthy meal. Eggs, fruit and healthy fat (almond butter for me but avocado could work too). This sets the precedent for the next few hours and gets me off on the right foot.
