Can You Out-train A Bad Diet?
It's a debate that seemly never ends, can you out-train a bad diet?
Jim Defona, owner of CrossFit Havoc, set out to find out. The rules were simple, eat 3 McDonalds everyday for 7 days. Stipulations:
1. Every meal has to be a number
2. At least one soda per day
3. I have to get the large size
Day 1 - His starting weight was 203lbs.
Day 2 - Weight 201.6lbs
Day 3 - He noted a couple things - commuting to McDonald's 3 times a day is a pain and more importantly, he started to smell horrible during workouts. His weight was still at 201.6lbs
Day 4 - A McFlurry was added for dinner, weight down to 200.2lbs
Day 5 - Jim added additional calories to mitigate the weight loss, 201.4lbs
Day 6 - 200.8lbs
Day 7 - Finished right back at 203lbs thanks to additional calories
After a full week of eating McDonalds Jim noted his energy levels weren't great and the logistics of eating fast food everyday was the biggest challenge. "I don’t recommend anyone else do this."
So can you out-train a bad diet? Jim sure did...you just might smell.
