Treat Your Diet Like a Baseball Season


by Brandon Steiner March 27, 2016 0 Comments

We’re kicking into March and all the New Years Resolutions have come and gone with baseball season officially returning next week.

I’m pretty conscientious about my diet, but keeping a strict diet is hard; damn near impossible. I have come to understand that your diet is like a baseball season. You can’t win every game.

Maybe you “win” the first three days of the week. But, come Thursday you go out to eat for a steak dinner and on Friday you decide on dessert.

That’s okay. I’m just trying to have a .750 winning percentage.

You’re winning a game, reliever comes in, gives up 4 runs or a second basemen boots a ball and the floodgates open. It’s baseball- that happens.

Same thing goes for your diet.

I want to have more good meals than bad meals, for sure. If I’m eating a full three meals a day, and let’s say a snack everyday too, so 28 meals a week, then I am okay with 5 or 6 losses. To win a pennant with my body I’ll be in pretty decent shape if I go 22-6.

Remember, It’s not about having one bad meal that’s bad…it’s one meal, the next one, and the next one.

I always have my ace meal that I can count on when I have had a bad meal or two. Omelette in the morning. Salad with some grilled chicken for lunch with no dressing. Right after that we’re back in the win-column.

Treat your diet as you would a baseball season.
