You can't out train a bad diet

I am not sure if you have come to this conclusion yet, but your diet is probably the most important factor when attempting to stay healthy and look good (naked or in clothes).

You can lift, exercise, crunch, run, you name it, you can do it and unless you are providing your body with the proper nutrients, timed correctly, you will never reach full potential.

Sure, a young male with testosterone surging through his body can probably eat almost anything he wants, but that can only last so long before his health is compromised and he starts getting visceral fat.

Eat to live, don't live to eat.

This does not mean you cannot enjoy special treats, have junk food once in a while, or snatch that bit of turkey skin on Thanksgiving day, what it means is you need to completely understand and make a commitment that your body needs to be treated with respect. If you cannot do it for yourself, do it for the people who love you.
