Food! The biggest puzzle to bodybuilding. That term “you are what you eat” is not an exaggeration. It is the truth. It does not matter how well you train, or even what supplements you take, if you are not dialed in on your food, you are not going to get there.
But even set aside bodybuilding. Just health in general, there are so many opinions out about this topic that it makes everyone’s head spin.

That is a whole another subject, maybe some other day.
So when I was competing the year of 99, I had a judge plaster me up against the wall after I got off stage from prejudging and she said “If your going to compete again in a few weeks, go home and eat some steak!” I had been eating nothing but fish and egg whites for a couple years. I did not realize how much nutrition I was missing. So I panicked.
