The Ability to Run Without Ever Getting Tired?

We are going to close out the latest poll with what became the closest one we have to date. To review, the options were, which of the following would you choose if you could possess one of these attributes. First was the ability to run without ever getting tired. Second was Being able to eat whatever you wanted for the rest of your life without any negative side effects to your health. The final choice was the ability to lift extreme amounts of weights.

The final results came out like this:

Ability to Run without Getting Tired – 9 Votes, 47%

Ability to Eat Anything Without Side effects – 8 Votes, 42%

Ability to Lift Extreme Amounts  of Weights – 2 Votes, 11%

Working with the guys at train2move is always interesting when the new polls come out since I am in my mid 30’s and most of the other guys are around 20. They of course would have either voted to lift heavy weights or run without getting tired, so would I have when I was that age. However, now that I am older I can much more appreciate how important eating right is. Gone are the days of being able to work out for 4-6 hours a day like I did in High School only to stop for lunch and get my 2 Big Mac’s for 2 Bucks deal at McDonalds.

Nutrition is getting more and more difficult. Thanks to some changes I have made over the years I have been able to stay more or less healthy from the standpoint of weight, cholesterol, and other health factors that can relate to our eating habits. The ability to eat whatever we want without needing to worry about how it is going to impact our bodies is by far the most obvious choice of the 3.

I look at how easy it is to pack on ten pounds or how drastically we can impact every system in our bodies with poor eating choices and I wish it was just easier. It used to be. Think of how we ate 200 years ago. Lack of options for sure but at least most of them were not causing many of the health issues we face today.

So the choice was easy for me but I would love to be able to run without ever getting tired. Check out our new poll and let us know your thoughts.

    I’m with you, Scott – I’d like to eat without consequence … but I can’t. I have a gluten allergy and sensitivity to sugar and excessive carbs. But these are not a drag, they’re a blessing. I must eat a clean diet of unprocessed, nutrient dense food or I’m sick. The benefits of a traditional diet like that are many. Combined with proper exercise, I feel great, I don’t look my age, and I can do pretty much any activities that I want. The energy and well-being are worth watching what you eat and it ends up not being hard because the rewards are so great!
