When I was 12 years old, while having a nice pancake breakfast at iHop with her and my mom, my sister said to me: ““You’ll never get a girlfriend, you’re so unattractive. You’re a fatass””.
My heart sunk to the floor. It took everything I had not to run out of the restaurant in tears. What little confidence I had up until then shattered like glass being smashed by a sledgehammer.
As much as it hurt, this moment changed my life.
It’s when I decided to learn everything I could about fitness so I could look great, get a girlfriend, and finally feel good about myself.
Of course, I was 12, so I didn’t exactly get off to a roaring start.
It wasn’t until I was 16 and skinny as a lamp post that I started lifting.
And it wasn’t until college that I finally gave a damn about nutrition.
After the $80,000 education, a decade plus of lifting, and trying every fitness and nutrition plan under the sun, I discovered something incredible.
Believe it or not, the more in shape I got the easier it was to maintain. That’s because I learned that fitness isn’t about finding the best routine or the latest diet based on “cutting-edge” research.
Being fit and happy is all about finding the nutrition and exercise plan that works for you.
