Exercise vs Diet

“You cannot exercise away a bad diet.”

—Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder and CEO

If you haven’t ever heard Greg Speak, check out some youtube videos. Brilliant guy.

You cannot exercise away a bad diet.

Why did he say that and what does he mean?

Specifically, he is battling big soda right now; all the sugar they are giving to the world, especially kids with compelling marketing campaigns. Sugar is very bad for you.

Here is a little clip

To me it means that nutrition is 95 percent of your health and wellness. No one wants to hear it. We all want it to be untrue.

You can’t eat McDonalds and Pizza everyday and just hit the gym and think that you will see results.

You will gain lean muscle and that will help but you will still gain body fat.

You simply will not burn enough calories to lose body fat. Not when you’re eating all that sugar and junk food. (White breads are sugar by the way…might as well chug two Pepsi’s)

Exercise is priceless in its benefits, but it is only part of the solution. Proper diet and nutrition need to be followed.

Another example…

We all know anti-oxidants are good. We read that everywhere. Even some candy has that on it.

So oxidants are bad. They are corrosive in our system.

Rust is an oxidant.

It makes sense to get oxidants and rust out of our system. That is why we want anti-oxidants.

Sugar is an oxidant. It is rust in your engine. It is corrosive and it will increase the effects of aging.

The solution is simple.

Meats and veggies, nuts and seeds, some fruit, some starch, NO SUGAR!
