I interviewed one of our top men’s hockey players on Wednesday. In two years he’s gone from 24% body fat to 8% while putting on 20 pounds of muscle. Naturally, I wanted to know how he did it.
“If it runs, swims, or flies, I eat it. If it doesn’t, I don’t,” he said. “Oh, and I eat a lot of greens. That’s it.” (He lifts weights, of course, and it’s worth noting that he didn’t spend any time doing traditional “cardio.”)
No, I did not say it was easy. I said it was simple.
