166: Kevin Curry: Fit Men Cook

December 12, 2019

The amazing Kevin Curry of "Fit Men Cook."  He says:

"I think we’ve all been there. My “ah-ha” moment happened when I saw a photo of myself on my friend’s Facebook page.  My initial reaction was a mixture of denial, surprise and quite truthfully, a little shame for letting myself go as much as I had.  I was overweight and felt sluggish, and to compound the issue, my physician told me my blood pressure was steadily rising. So, I did what most people try to do— I started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet.

"I was wrong.  There was not enough cardio or weights in the world that could get this fat off my back. I realized that if I was going to accomplish my fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.

"So, I went to a half price book store, bought every single book about dieting and started studying nutrition.  Shortly after, I got started cooking.  I did not have much money so I started experimenting in the kitchen with different proteins and veggies in order to make simple, relatively inexpensive items, taste great.  I vowed that I would never eat another boiled chicken breast again unless I had to!

"Fitness is a lifelong journey and I could not imagine a life of eating boring, bland food just to be healthy.  Now more than ever, I firmly believe that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty.  And even better, the lifestyle changed worked. As I saw my physique begin to change, I was motivated to push harder and set more aggressive goals.  Not only did I learn how to lose weight, but also I learned how to gain muscle, with small tweaks in both my diet and training."
