Education is Key!

In Inc.com, Chris Dessi discusses the 7 Daily Habits of the Most Self-Disciplined People.  Below is a habit we found to hold truthful.

“Developing a rhythm of health-related activities snowballs and creates patterns of self-discipline. Have you ever been the guy busting his butt at the gym with little to show for it? Do you ever glance over at the ripped dude flexing in the mirror for an hour? Did you notice that he didn’t even work out before he went home?

You think to yourself, “How is this dude in such great shape? He doesn’t do anything at the gym!” The truth of the matter is science. This dude is working smarter, not harder. To treat your body well, you have to know how to do it.

Education, as is usually the case, is the solution. I didn’t become healthy until I met with a nutritionist. He broke it down for me. What I can eat, what I cannot eat, what my body processes and what it won’t. When I should eat, how much I should eat, and how I should be working out.

It turns out that by expending less effort, working out less, spending less money at the grocery store, and eliminating spending money eating out, you get immediate and effective results.”

Chris is completely right.  Most people don’t know what to eat!  The mentality of most(especially high school students) who want to start taking their health seriously is ‘I can eat whatever I want as long as I workout’.  That could not be farther from the truth!  We would rather you spend the majority of your time learning and practicing the effects of different foods on your body rather than spending hours at the gym.

Below is a link to a couple educational nutrition plans!
