Why You Can’t Out-Train a Bad Diet

How often do you justify poor nutrition choices? This morning’s WOD was intense, so you add a muffin to your morning coffee order. Work was stressful, so an afternoon chocolate break is much needed. You get takeout because friends are in town, and finish your child’s dessert so it doesn’t go to waste. But training was extra hard this week, so Saturday is a “cheat day”. 

While no food is off limits in a healthy balanced diet, the miserable truth is that it’s almost impossible to achieve our fitness goals with a poor diet. No matter if we’re training for weight loss, muscle gain or performance goals, our diet should support our training; our training shouldn’t support our poor diet.
