Feeding Fat vs Feeding Muscle

While listening to an interview with Lou Ferrigno today on the Adam Carolla podcast, Lou mentioned training intensely now as he did during his body-building days, both with the amount of weight he lifts and how he watches what he eats.

He said something very simple that made a lot of sense:  "Do you want to feed fat or do you want to feed muscle"?

When I make decisions about what to eat, I know I can stay within my energy limits by making nutritionally dense and and muscle-feeding choices, or I can feed fat by eating sliders.  

So, this week, I'll practice Lou's simple, mindful check-in before I eat and ask "Do I want to feed fat or do I want to feed muscle?"
