Increase Your Life Expectancy With Bacon

Posted: June 14, 2016 in Uncategorized

One of my biggest pet peeves in bodybuilding and fitness in general, is that people try to give “one size fits all” advice.

If there is one thing I have learned after all these years, it is that you need to determine what works for you.

For some people, regular bench press might make your chest explode in size, other people will do better with the incline bench.

Some people prefer 3-5 mile tempo runs, others prefer sprints.

Just because something worked for Arnold Schwarzenegger, doesn’t necessarily mean it is going to work for you.

That also goes for your diet.

Some people can handle a low-carb diet, some people can’t.  Some people can eat gluten, some people can’t.

But it is up to YOU to figure out which foods your body reacts well too and the ones that don’t.

Are bagels bad for you?  Test them out.  Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Are potato’s bad you? Test them out.

I personally, don’t gain any weight from potatoes.

Recently, I have inherited a 13-year old chihuahua from my fiance.  Last week the store ran out of her favorite treats and instead of bacon flavored, we gave her turkey.

The difference in her behavior was noticeable.

After one week of sleeping all day and night I switched her back to bacon and now she won’t sit still.

I don’t know if bacon is a super food or she just loves the taste, but if bacon flavored treats make that much of difference, then it’s probably a good idea to stick with it.

Humans are the same way.  Experiment with your workouts and your diet and find out what works the best for you.

Take frequent blood tests and find out what is working.

Maybe you just need some bacon.
