There isn’t one.
Example #1 : Billy Bob is training for a marathon in June and then plans to train for a powerlifting meet in December. Now imagine the change in his diet- and all the adjustments he could possibly make. Without going into great detail about the various ways this could be done. Just know that nutrition can help you optimize your performance. It’s wise to pay attention to something that can help you achieve your goals.
Example #2: Sara is going to Hawaii in 2 months and wants to have a “six pack in her bikini”? Does she really want that? The better question would be, what would she be willing to give up for those 8 weeks, to potential get those abs.
Although a key component, nutrition is just one piece to the puzzle that is known as RECOVERY. You can only TRAIN as hard as you RECOVER! If you’re not up on your sleep, nutrition, & mobility- you won’t be at your best. The reality is, life, work, family obligations are all things that can pull time away from proper recovery. It happens, don’t beat yourself up, but do be honest with yourself. We just have to do our best to create healthy behaviors that keep us in the game for the long haul.
Humans are diverse. We need to know our “WHY.” Reach out to your coach. Have a conversation. We are not just here to point to the whiteboard and turn the clock on. If you think that, you are terribly mistaken.
So much on my mind, I’ll stop here. If you’d like to dive deeper, you can find me lifting something heavy and then putting it back down over and over again! #barbells4life
