I used to think that diet has nothing to do with getting in shape. I have always believed in the fact that as long as you lift weights heavier than you can handle, your body will change. Your body will transform by committing to more time at the gym and adding a few extra reps to your workout. Obviously, I was wrong. I was a victim of this experiment. There was a point in my life where I committed to the gym five days a week and concentrating on different body parts each day. The weekend was a different story. The night life was my weekend destination. I drank and danced the night away. I never once thought about limiting my alcohol consumption. It was then when I realized that my body had gone muscle plateau. The amount of time I would pushed myself at the gym had made no difference in my figure. I felt that my body was not changing even with the amount of health supplements I was taking.
One day, I had to attend a conference in Las Vegas. One of the guest speakers was a 70 year old body builder. He explained his journey to more than 100 people in that conference room. I was focused and took in all the advise and recommendations that he presented in front of us. He was probably the most fit 70 year old I have ever seen. He went over the importance of weightlifting and diet. It was then when I realized that diet was a big part of living a healthier lifestyle. It was then when I realized that if you want to change your body, you have to eat right. I followed his diet plan and committed to eating 6-7 times a day. I went through a good 3-4 months stretch following his diet plan. The transformation was great and after 6 weeks, I did notice my body changing. I must admit, however, that I would lose track every once in awhile. I think the hardest part about keeping up with your diet is prepping for the week. I need to work on my time management. There were times where inconsitency played a part to my bad decisions. Again, I do not consider myself perfect and I will make decisions along the way. I will continue to work on myself and will ensure that I keep up with fitness along with my diet to help increase my progression.
