Over a year ago, I wrote on how food and diet beliefs are as ingrained in many of us as religion. Tell someone that Soy is a highly processed piece of yuck and you risk a friendship. Telling someone else that you don’t want a lot of sugar snacks or chips kept around the house and the minute you leave the room, the shit talk starts. It’s very curious to me.
Why do unhealthy people have such strong opinions on MY not wanting to eat like them…on a daily basis? Do I eat dessert? Hellz ya! If it’s tasty, I love it! Do I eat breaded and deep fried cheese? Hellz ya! I live in Wisconsin, to not to is a sin against cheese. Do I eat those two things at one sitting? Uhhh, no. Yuck. Do I eat them every week, or even month? Uhhh, no. Yuck.
Do I eat a snackable? Hellz ya, that’s processed food fun in a box. With a cookie! Do I eat a delicious Highlander burger after three straight days of training and throwing? Oh ya, that is one earned Highlander. But we don’t eat like that at home, day after day. See how that works? It’s quite possible to live in the world without being a complete food nazi. It’s also quite possible to live in the world and not eat as a complete fat arse. Yes?
Meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy, and bacon. How hard is that? The combinations are endless. A little cupcake thrown in? Sure, once in a great while. A pizza? Yup, not nearly enough. Heh. A whole meal of processed carbs and crap. Yup. WHAT?!
Yup. Enjoy it while you eat it, you’ll feel like garbage in about an hour and remember why you don’t eat like this all the time. If you feel normal the next day, your daily diet sucks. Stop it.
But bag on ME because I lift, throw, and choose not to keep crappy food in the house? Uhhhh, okay. And for those of you who can say with a straight face, “We have to keep this sugary food in the house for the kids.” SRSLY. Who runs this show? Those of you who have had years of weight trouble due to using shitty food as a reward NOW want to pass this down to your kids? Uhhhh, okay. Awesome.
But ya, come at me bro with your shitty diet and talk about how sad we are that we don’t eat like you.
Number one, like yourself. Number two, you have to eat healthy. And number three, you’ve got to squeeze your buns. That’s my formula.
