thoughts on out-training a bad diet + “1000 calorie” workout

This is an interesting question.

GENERALLY speaking, I would say NO – you can NOT “out-train” a bad diet.

But there ARE some exceptions.

If you are prepared to work out a LOT, I think it IS actually possible.

For example, as you probably know, in a “former life”, I played offensive line – in high school, college, and a couple of years in the pros.

During a typical day of training camp, we would practice for a couple of hours in the morning, condition for about half an hour right after that, lift weights for about an hour in the early afternoon, and then go back and practice again for a couple more hours in the early evening.

We did this every day. For three weeks straight.

Back in those days I could literally eat anything I wanted to – as much food as I could possibly consume – and I would and up losing about 10 pounds in that three week period.

So this is an example of how one COULD, in theory, out-train a bad diet

Now let me be clear. I am not saying that you should go out and train for five or six hours per day. But I AM saying that maybe an approach like my good friend Kate Vidulich suggests with her latest 1000 calorie accelerator program might work for you.

She actually works you up to workouts that burn 1000 calories. Which is pretty awesome. Three of those each week and you’re almost burning an extra pound of fat (there are 3500 calories in a pound).

I got a sample workout from her new program for you today.  Try it, and let me know how it goes.  And hopefully I’ve at LEAST got you thinking about working out a little more to burn some extra calories this week
