▪️ I’m sure that you’ve heard the phrases: “eat clean, train dirty” or “eat clean, train mean” or “you can’t expect to look like a million bucks if you eat off the dollar menu.”But what is the true meaning behind these phrases? If you were to ask 10 people what it means to “eat clean,” you’ll get 10 different responses.
▪️These phrase all have one thing in common: it’s exceptionally restrictive. Because of false information, we are often led to believe that some foods are good and other foods are bad. Not one person has ever dropped dead from eating one candy bar though—just like no one has ever woke up in the morning lean and healthy from eating a few servings of vegetables. This is not to say that we should choose chocolate chip cookies over apples and carrots. What I am directing towards is, being too restrictive on a diet is making it nearly impossible to consume the appropriate amount of nutrients that your body needs.
