So, I've been lifting regularly in college with two friends. I was always told your health was 75% diet, 25% exercise. Well, my two friends I've been lifting with are absolute beasts. They are ripped, and very much in shape. One of them can curl his own body weight. But, all they ever eat is junk food. They go out to fast food restaurants all the time, they eat desert food like no other, they use tobacco products regularly, etc. They DO take Whey protein and one of them adds in creatine, but I just don't get it. While I am seeing results on the weightlifting, I'm not seeing it on my body. I'm not saying I'm eating incredibly healthy, since I'm in college sometimes it's really difficult to balance schoolwork, exercise, socializing, with a healthy meal, but I do eat a lot healthier than they do. When I am out on campus I always have a bag of unroasted Walnuts or Almonds, and I try to add a serving of vegetables with every dinner. Is it just genetic disposition or something?
