The American Conservatives, a conservative publication, is calling out the “bad” habit of eating healthy.
“It’s hard to maintain the same level of fitness in the same time frame,” said co-editor Chris G. Bock.
“It’s really hard to do the same things over and over again.
You can’t keep eating the same way.”
The magazine says it’s taking a step in the right direction by calling for more research to understand how the body can handle extreme exercise.
“Our job as conservatives is to hold the line, to stand up and fight for our freedoms, our freedoms to do what we love, what we’re good at, and that is exercise,” said Bock in an interview.
“But if we just keep eating that way, the body just won’t adapt.
That’s why we need to do some research to find out if this really is healthy.”
The article, titled The 5 Things You Need to Know About the Healthiest Lifestyle, says: “You’re not going to lose weight just by getting out of the house.
You’re not even going to gain it.””
You can’t do it by putting on a weight vest and going to the gym,” said Dr. Peter H. Lonsdale, director of the Center for Sport Science and Performance at The Ohio State University.
“The only way to lose fat is to lose muscle.
Exercise is a great way to get that muscle.
The body needs to be in an adaptive state, and the exercise that you do with weights and resistance training is just going to be a lot more difficult for the body to adapt to.”
The American Conservative says a diet should focus on eating more fruits and vegetables and more plant-based foods.
“If you’re going to go out to a restaurant and have dinner with a salad, you want to go with a variety of greens and fruits and you don’t want to eat just salad and no greens,” said G. Scott Walker, former governor of Wisconsin.
“You want to be looking for different sources of protein and fats.
I think that’s going to help the body.”
Walker, who has a 2.1-million-member Facebook fan base, said he has “been in a calorie deficit” and that “if I eat two small meals a day, I don’t look like a fat man.”
He also believes “the only way that you’re not fat is if you’re eating the right foods and eating the wrong foods.”
Walker has been featured on the cover of The American Journal of Sports Medicine.
He also was featured in a 2015 documentary about the American Health Care Act, which the GOP sponsored.
Walker has a personal website that contains some interesting insights on the state of American health care.
For example, it states: “I don’t care if you’ve got a great job, if you have a great education, if your family has a great lifestyle, if the economy is good, if Obamacare is good.
If you don, you’re probably not going have a good life.”
