Learn what old school weight lifting is all about. Lift like the old masters so you can become as strong as they were.
I'd like to share my vision on keeping fit and feeling strong and healthy with you. Since I've been practicing many sports for a long time, I've marked...
3) Eating Right When It's Hectic
I spent a few days checking out all the foods in my local grocery store to find easy-to-prepare ones that are good on the go. And now I can just buy them and eat them.
For example, I try to really get enough protein for my own muscle building efforts. I found a brand of Greek yogurt that I love (Fage, if you're interested), and now I buy tons of the stuff! It's easy to carry around, high in protein (complete animal proteins at that), and the calories are already measured out. I love it!
Do the same for yogurt, cheeses, milk, and different brands of jerky or dried meats. These are easy to carry around, the calories are usually already measured out, and once you find a brand you like you can buy a ton of it.
Seriously, carry that simple stuff around! Yogurt, cheese, and jerky are great for this, but fruits (and even some vegetables) work great for this too.
When I'm busy I try to keep yogurt and a few apples and carrots in my backpack. They don't take up much room, and they're handy in a pinch.
Choose a diet mentality that works for you when you're eating out. If you're busy all the time, you'll probably eat out sometimes. You won't be able to count your calories, and you'll have to have a general diet plan that works.
Whether it's paleo or Ornish or Atkins or South Beach, choose a general philosophy. Or make up your own! Just eating out with the simple expectation of not eating crap will work great too. It also helps to remember that if you get full and don’t finish your restaurant plate, you are not wasting money – you are gaining a feeling of well-being and maybe even a doggie bag.
I usually have one or two days a week when I'm at home. I use this time to get work (and laundry and dishes ;-) done, but also to prepare food for the coming week.
It doesn't take me a ton of time or mental energy to bake some squash (easy to store in your fridge for the coming week) and make a big pitcher full of green tea. And get an idea for how busy the coming week will be, and what my eating will be like.
I don't spend a ton of time obsessing about this stuff, but it pays to do a little planning. Plan, work hard, and it'll work.
