Comfort Foods

You are stronger than any of your so called comfort foods. I just want you to know that. If your comfort food is calling you out, and you don't feel like it's going to benefit you to indulge, just go quiet and listen to what your body is saying. Are you mistaking hunger for thirst? Their signals can seem similar. Are you cutting calories too low? Are you getting enough protein? Are you getting enough sleep? Hormones send funny messages when you mess with their fuel. Sometimes giving into temptation a little bit can be beneficial, others times not. Just be clear that food is nothing more than fuel, and you are stronger than any of it.

Size Matters?

I'm a true believer in the idea that building a stronger, better body is a damned righteous endeavor. Maybe not the most noble pursuit ever, but still admirable; and at least a smart thing to do. What I find pitiful, however, are the guys who never seem to be satisfied with their gains. Pick up a copy of one the supplement catalogs- I mean magazines like Iron Man, Flex, Men's Health... It's a sad state of affairs. You'd think the secret to happiness and health is to workout for four hours every day, and fill your body full of all the latest chemical laden supplements.

Even these "natural" bodybuilders have jumped on the bandwagon. As long as its not on the list of banned substances for competitions, they're more than happy to flex next to a photoshopped giant bottle of powder. But whatever, everybodys got to make a living somehow.

Bigger might not be better, just a thought. I'll still watch the Mr. Olympia, cheer for the winner, and pray for him when he has his hip replacement surgery in fifteen years.
