Bacon, Nutella & Buns of Steel

I ate bacon and Nutella last night. And it was fucking awesome.

For the record, I didn’t lather Nutella on my bacon (that’s just messed up) but did enjoy several white buns topped with Nutella alongside my serving of six strips of bacon.

I don’t regret it one bit. In fact, I woke up looking about as cut as I can look in my current condition.

It was a NECESSARY cheat.

Context is everything.

Let that sink in.

Anyway, I’m not saying you should ditch nutrient-rich foods for boxed, made-in-a-factory alternatives in most cases, but context is everything!

Here’s the context… earlier in the day I had trained for an hour mid-afternoon and just before this meal was on the ice for a grueling beer league hockey game (don’t laugh, I’ve still got it).

Essentially, I had two hard training sessions within 8 hours, making my calorie binge more than justified.

Had I gone home and measured out a cup of rice alongside a plain chicken boob, you can bet my recovery would suck (calorie deficit, too low fat), my joints would hurt in the morning and I’d be setting myself up for failure in the following day’s workout.

The problem for most people is they get paralyzed by these food identifiers (‘good’ and ‘bad’) and neglect the shit that truly matters.

Shit that matters: Not sleeping enough. Not exercising enough. Eating TOO MUCH of the wrong foods in relation to energy expenditure and so on.

If your current diet is so restrictive you’re one slip-up away from disaster, you’re bound to fail.

Do you know why your little one loves candy so much? Because you make it desirable for them by limiting it. 

Enough of the noise!

<LIGHT BULB MOMENT> Fix your environment with the right amount of exercise, sleep and balance of macronutrients in your diet and you’ll be able to eat bacon and Nutella once in awhile and wake up with a six pack. It’s that simple.

I’m not saying it’ll happen overnight, but once you find the minimum effective dose of exercise for YOU and a diet that suits YOU, you’ll build muscle at an accelerated rate, raise your resting metabolism and churn through foods you once thought were off limits.

No calorie counting required once you’ve got it handled. No marathon bouts of cardio. No constant cravings or feelings of hunger. Just results.

Besides, bacon helps you prolong your life… so says science (thanks, Google).
