People ask me all the time, “What do you eat?” And I tell them all the time that I eat what I tell them to eat. I rarely go against my “rules” for eating to be “Clean & Lean”. I like to keep a constant “diet” because the body thrives on a sense of normalcy and consistency. The body works at it’s optimum when it can continuously rely on a nutritious diet made up of clean foods with little to no processing or chemicals – BOTTOM LINE, LONG STORY SHORT, HONESTLY SPEAKING, etc etc.
With that being said, there is no end in your “diet” unless you are dead. You cannot think or say, “I just eat this way until I reach my goal and then I can eat whatever I want.” That is called “yo-yo” dieting. It is the path to going up and down with your weight. It’s an equation to shutting down your metabolism.
Diet is a constant. It is one of the few things that you can control. You control what you buy at the grocery store. You control what you order at a restaurant. You are the only one holding the fork to your mouth. Life is full of unpredictable experiences that you cannot control. If you want your body to react to those experiences at it’s best then you better be giving your body something to rely on.
