If I would plan on going to the gym at night, the food I would consume during that day would not be healthy because I figured Id run it off at the gym. This works for me so I figured I would share it.
I try to think of food as not what your burning off... but what you need to feed your muscles DAILY. If your not eating at least 1g per pound of body weight for protien(and 3-1 or 2-1 if your bulking for crabs) then you are simply letting your body burn as much muscle as fat. I really started improving in all areas of my mma when I TRULY changed my thinking from what "Bad calories I eat and need to burn off" to what I NEED to eat to keep improving.
