For many people, nutrition is the most challenging aspect of getting fit, yet it is probably the most important. Whether you’ve heard this thousands of times or never heard it before, it is a fact of fitness that YOU CAN’T OUT WORK A BAD DIET! Many have tried, many have failed.

I know, you love cookies, cakes, pies, doughnuts, candy, chips, soda, burgers, pizza, hot wings, beer, tequila….Ill stop there. Personally, I can destroy a mountain of warm, soft, chocolate chip cookies in record time, but their is a time for that. Think of your body as a 2017 Mercedes Benz and fill it with good, quality FUEL! FUEL YOUR BODY!
