Tout dans la vie est une question d'équilibre d'où la nécessité de garder un esprit sain dans un corps sain.


Everything in life is a matter of balance therefore one needs to keep a healthy mind in a healthy body.

Simple Eating for Super Results

by Zach Even-Esh

Consistency is the biggest factor when it comes to making improvements; this is for nutrition and training. You can't eat great and enough quality nutrition for a few days, and then fall off the wagon for a few days. It won't work.
When I was in my late teens and early 20s, I was able to eat a bowl of cereal or a turkey and cheese sandwich afteralmost every meal. I was always lean. But I hit a plateau and I knew that if it was broke, it had to be fixed. I eliminated milk, bread, and dairy. In one week my body looked completely different and my strength increased slightly as well.
What has always worked for me is having breakfast, lunch, an afternoon meal, dinner/post workout meal, and a late evening meal.
I encourage my student athletes to do this as well. Most people skip breakfast or eat a crappy one, have a shitty lunch, eat nothing until dinner, and then maybe some more shit at night.
I've always seen the best nutrition results come from minimal variety, regularly eating the same foods over and over again. My forte is definitely not nutrition, but if someone simply applies himself to eating clean, wholesome foods on a regular basis — plenty of protein and wholesome carbs, fruits, veggies, tons of water, and meal replacements when necessary — he'll make great gains.
