Mark Wahlberg Makes Nutrition A Priority
Nutrition is probably responsible for 90 percent of the success you get in the gym. If you haven't figured this out yet, it could explain why you have lost your focus. Most people think they have to lift more, workout longer, and increase the number of times they workout in a week to make progress. There are two problems with this approach. One, there is probably not enough recovery time built into the workout plan. And two, the diet is probably canceling out all of the hard work.
Not only is it critical to eat the right kinds of food in the right quantity. The timing has to be on point as well. You can't go grab a whole pizza and a beer after your workout anymore than you can skip a post-workout meal. Check out what Mark Wahlberg has to say about his regimen and commitment to nutrition. Then, clean the junk out of your fridge and go shopping!
