Default Wendler: You Can Out Train Your Diet

You Can Out Train Your Diet -

Itís not a popular sentiment to say this, but you can out train your diet. People have done it for thousands of years and people do it today. I have seen hundreds of people do it. Just not popular to say that if you are selling a nutrition program, idea or fitness lifestyle.

The problem is that most canít train that hard. The time, dedication and work ethic are things most people donít have. They have jobs and other hobbies/parts of their life that are more important than training. There is no shame in that Ė you can still be very successful (insanely) and not dedictate EVERY moment of your life to training. But you can out train your diet.

There are two things you CANíT out train Ė your past and your age. If you grow up fat and never learned how to eat correctly, you canít out train that without a proper diet. This is a good reason to teach your children GOOD (not great, good) eating habits at a young age. They wonít have to suffer from a life time of self-esteem issues, relationship issues, a hampered social life in high school and really, being an all-around drama king/queen about their ****ing body. If you are 18 years old and you donít know what healthy foods are and what they arenít, your parents have failed you.

Age is another thing that is impossible to out train without a healthy diet. Eating like shit will catch up to you eventually Ė either in the waist or in the doctorís office. Not to mention joint pain, stomach problems, reflux, etc. At a certain point, you should eat like a grown up.

Yes there are exceptions to these rules, but using them to prove your point only proves the biggest one of all.

Destroy That Which Destroys You
