Training and nutrition advice
Being fit is a lifestyle. It takes some serious dedication to learn how to build muscle, keep off unwanted fat, and eat healthy. Some people make it seem like you're a lazy, worthless sack of crap if you can't do all the things they do.
I can't STAND seeing that shit!!!
All of us have varying degrees of busy lives. Well, okay, MOST of us do. If you work to keep food on the table and a roof overhead, you probably lead a fairly busy life. Sometimes, it's hard to eat healthy 100% of the time and get to the gym 6 days a week.
Now, I'm not saying it's okay to just eat crap and skip your workouts. It's important, and necessary to do these things if you want to be the best version of you that's possible. Seriously, don't eat garbage all damn day and never exercise - it can literally kill you!
However, I do sympathize with a lot of you out there who are really busy, and find it hard some weeks to do your workouts, and still eat healthy. A lot of you are way busier than I am, so learning how to make workouts work for you is important. Figuring how to eat healthy in such a way that won't break your brain is also important.
You really don't need to hit the weights 6 days a week anyway. 3 days is plenty for most. You can even learn how to do workouts at home to save you the time of having to even go to a gym.
One of the most aggravating things I've seen is a saying that goes something like, "don't reward yourself with food, you're not a dog."
To that I say...
Seriously, I wish these "fitness professionals" would stop trying to make people feel like shit for wanting to have a little piece of junk food at the end of a hard day to help ease stress. Again, I'm NOT saying to just pig out on bad food all the damn time. However, having something you enjoy that isn't healthy every now and then is perfectly fine, and in fact, can be quite beneficial for your mental health.
Seriously, do the best you can with what you have. Building small habits you can follow is really how getting this whole fitness lifestyle to work is going to happen. Small steps will help you accomplish a lot in the long run. Try not to worry too much about what all these fitness models online are telling you to do. While some of them may have good advice, I find it's important to remember that we all have different lives, and that there is no one size fits all workout and diet plan that will work for everybody.
Apparently, I'm not the only who thinks things like this.
