What a head-ache! There is just way too much to think about to manage a diet. Every Time I try to really get on top of things I just end up with an OCD headache. Balancing your intake, to stay lean and produce power, is both an art and a science. In this regard I am neither Van Gough nor Einstein.
There are just too many variables to think about. Carbs, proteins, vitamins, fats, iron. Am I eating too little am I eating too much. The last thing I ever want to do is sit down and do math before every meal. Now, you are probably thinking that I should quit whining and just eat what my body says to. Alas, I wish it were that simple.
I have recently been instructed to step up my nutritional management. This assessment comes from some rather qualified individuals and cannot be ignored. I have been given some homework, a shopping list and lesson in basic math. Now I have a headache. This is not a quick alteration and I am going to have to form some habits.
