Sugar is to Blame

I swam competitively in college. Because my activity level and training volume was so huge, I thought I could eat whatever I wanted, and I did. It was not uncommon for our team to have soft serve ice-cream from the dinning hall after EVERY MEAL.

But as the article listed below points out, you can’t outrun (or out swim) a bad diet. Oftentimes we think of diet and exercise as a teeter-totter. If we eat a bit too much, we just workout more the next day, but it doesn’t work like that. Exercise and diet should be thought of as two separate pieces to one puzzle for health.

“You cannot outrun a bad diet, experts warn, as they suggest greed, not sloth is causing Britain’s expanding waistlines.”
