It’s the fuel we need to get stronger, build muscle, and burn fat.
It’s also the thing that temps us in the middle of the night and keeps us from our goals. It can either help us excel or drag us down and suck our energy.
Eating good, high quality foods is the fastest way to getting fit and healthy, while eating the typical American diet of junk is the fastest way to get fat.
The problem is that the majority of this country is choosing the latter.
Knowing what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat is easily one of the biggest issues we face when trying to get fit. We tend to complicate things, buy into fad diets and listen to the wrong people. The end result is that we not only don’t lose the weight we want, but end up fatter than when we started.
It’s no surprise that we, as single dads, struggle to find time to plan, cook, prepare, and actually eat the things we are supposed to. We know that we have to do it yet we rarely do. We find excuses not to cook, reasons not to pack lunch, and just figure we’re doing the best we can.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated nor does it have to be expensive. Will it cost more to eat lean meats and veggies than Twinkies and Doritos? Yes, but the cost difference will be made up in many other ways, including your health insurance premiums!
What’s In Your Refrigerator?
In today’s video, I open my refrigerator and pantry and show you what I keep in there. I, like many of you, have limited income and have to choose my foods wisely. I also happen to work from home, so I need to have good foods available if I plan to continue making progress in the gym.
The purpose of this video is to share some ideas as to what you should be buying and eating if your goal is to lose fat and add muscle and I’m guessing that’s pretty much everyone’s goal here!
And now that you know what I eat, what’s in your fridge??

Limited income? I know a blog that features interviews and guest posts from various self-styled internet phenoms who usually claim to be making “six figure incomes.” 😉
Twinkies are getting kind of expensive where I live, but Doritos, yeah, still pretty affordable.
What’s in my refrigerator? Quite a few vegetables, actually… which tend to linger in the bottom of the crisper drawer until they turn brown and start to get slimy. Mostly that’s because they get hidden under the Hershey bars and I forget about them.
What blog is that, David? I have the same issues with my produce. I’m all excited to eat it and I end up letting it wilt and die in the fridge..
