Although I spend 95% of the time on this blog talking about kettlebell exercises and workouts, diet is a critical component of any training program that can’t be overlooked. Like it or not, what you eat plays a huge role in your performance.
I truly believe that there is no perfect diet for everyone – and personal experience in servicing nearly 10,000 career training sessions strongly supports this fact. Different approaches work for different people.
Here are three meal plans that will compliment your kettlebell training program well – it’s ultimately up to you to pick which one fits your preferences and lifestyle best.
Author Mark Sisson (of Mark’s Daily Apple) makes an effort in this book to dispel many diet ‘myths’ that have come to be accepted as fact in popular culture. Life of our primal ancestors is put in stark contrast with the modern sedentary lifestyles most of us lead and the potential associated health issues. This book poses a solution that promises to guide us towards “effortless weight loss, vibrant health and boundless energy”.
