Last week I had a bit of a run in with an unhappy woman who emailed me letting me know that I don’t eat enough and that I give off the wrong message when I post what I eat in a day. I try to preface everything I do or say, but there are always things that people interpret the wrong way. And the last thing I want to have is people comparing in a negative light. What’s funny about what I do is that I always have someone saying I eat too much or I eat too little. So which one is it? Well, it’s neither. They are probably just comparing to what THEIR body needs instead of understanding that what MY body needs is completely different. Our life stressors, our schedules, our bodies, our needs, our workouts…they are all different. So why would you compare?
Well, because that’s human nature.
If you think I eat too little, well consider my workouts. Last week, my workouts that I’m actually working the entire time range from 12-30 minutes. So that means I’m working out a max of 30 minutes per day. Max. So if you’re working out 1-3 hours per day, you obviously need a different amount of fuel compared to a person like me who is working out for 30 minutes. If you think I eat too much, well that’s weird. Have you seen the normal American diet lately? Come on, bro.
My point is, stop f*cking comparing. No single person is like you, so why would you compare yourself to someone else? I share what I ate in a day to help inspire you with your own meals or show you that eating clean while traveling is possible or help you see that daily healthy eating habits are possible. It’s not for you to think that you should be eating 10 plantain chips because someone else ate 10. Instead, you think – Oh, maybe I should check out plantain chips for a snack for myself. It’s all about perspective.
Comparison is the the enemy. It eats us lives and hinders our growth. So stop comparing. Stop slowing yourself down. Take responsibility for your own needs, your own body, and your own decisions. That’s going to get you so much farther in life.
