Eat out and eat more
Now, we’re not suggesting that food should just be considered as fuel for training – we like a Friday-night trip to the pizza place or a Sunday pub roast as much as the next person. But watching your portion sizes at social events is a wise idea, according to Cornell University Food & Brand Lab scientists. Their study found that men were far more likely to overeat at social gatherings, which could negatively impact training effificiency. Ironically, eating more when out with the lads is perceived as a sign of virility and strength.
