My Truths #1 (lifestyle)
While exercising is very important for good health, you cannot exercise away a bad diet. According to Mark Sisson (Mark’s Daily Apple and the Primal Blueprint) 70% of your body composition is based on what you eat. Food is a huge source of enjoyment for most people and if you can find a diet that is satisfying physically i.e. provides adequate fuel for your activity and is nutritious (provides the macro and micro nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and young) but that is also satisfying emotionally then you are likely to adopt this was of eating long term. This is what you should be looking for…not the next crash diet but a long term lifestyle change.
