If you’ve read my training philosophy page, I start it off by praising simplicity. Just like training I don’t overcomplicate my nutrition and keep it plain as day when I am in my competitive season. When I don’t have any shows on the horizon, I will allow myself to have some unordinary foods, well, unordinary for me. I’m not a nutritionist, but I know that a body works in repetitions, that’s how you train yourself in the gym and out of the gym. By repeating a pattern, you create a habit.
When it comes to our bodies and the way they function, all depends on how we choose to program it through repetitions at a very early age. For example, if you form a habit of eating only a few times a day for years, your body will make it a habit to utilize those few meals and make sure everything is getting it’s proper nutrients. It will be programmed to function on those few meals, because the consistency of having those several meals over the years has made that kind of eating a habit. Like teaching a dog tricks over a period of time, through repetitive actions they learn what you would expect of them to. In the same pattern, since your early days through your actions, you teach your body to adapt to a system.
