Simple Nutrition Advice from Chad Waterbury

Posted in Guest Authors on November 1, 2008 by mboyle1959

I’m not sure why I’m on a nutrition kick these days but, I am. Strength coach and writer Chad Waterbury had an excellent take on nutrition in one of his old t-nation articles. i find myself repeating it all the time.

“If I told you to consume one gram of protein per pound of body weight, fibrous vegetables, water, green tea, 12 grams of fish oil, and spread those out over the course of six meals each day you’d be anything but impressed. But if I held you in captivity and forced you to do that every day for a month, you’d be blown away by the results. The nutritional methods to lose fat have already been found. The challenge we coaches face is figuring out how we’re going to get you to adhere to the guidelines.”

This originally appeared in an article called Crack Open My Cranium on t-nation

Sometimes it really is simple. If it’s white, don’t eat it. Forget the RD’s nutrition recommendations, forget the food pyramid. Have a great weekend.
