Diet and Nutrition – You Can’t Out Train a Bad Diet

DIET VS EXERCISE

I am so excited about this post, because the title says it all.

YOU CAN’T OUT TRAIN A BAD DIET.

As Mixed Martial Artists, we often think because we train so hard, we don’t have to really watch what we are eating, unless we are cutting weight to prepare for a fight.  Totally false: the truth is, we need to always monitor what we eat even if we are not preparing for a fight. 

Your body has to be in top form when you are training, so you do not get sick, injured or constantly tired. IT STARTS WITH NUTRITION.

That said: Even with all the training that we do and the calories that we consistantly burn, if our diet sucks than it all goes to waste.  Case in point, this 4 series video installmant  from my good friend Craig Ballantine (www.turbulencetraining.com ) and Brad Pilon.

They show you through their diet vs exercise how ineffective cardio is and just how dramatic your calorie intake can be without you knowing it.  – WATCH ALL 4 VIDEOS and remember

YOU CAN’T OUT TRAIN A BAD DIET!

First instalment of diet vs. exercise where Craig Ballantyne and Brad Pilon show you how ineffective cardio is and just how dramatic your calorie intake can be without you knowing it.

The simple truth is; you can’t out-train a bad diet.

Today, in this contest, Craig Ballantyne is going to run on the treadmill on an incline of .5 and a speed of 10.5 mph for 3 minutes, while Brad Pilon eats pizza and drinks soda pop.

Brad is going to try to consume as many calories as he can in those 3 minutes, while Craig is going to see how many calories he can burn off in that same amount of time.

In 3 minutes, Brad consumed approximately 1000 total calories, while Craig burned only 43 calories.

Cardio loses against diet.

This just goes to show you, in diet vs. exercise, you can never out train a bad diet. It doesn’t matter how good your program is, if this is your nutrition, you’re not going to lose fat.
