Many bodybuilders have been brainwashed to believe that eating clean all the time will produce the best possible physique and send them to heaven. This is not the case at all. Eating clean all the time could actually be counterproductive.
Living your life around the clock and walking with a box of chicken breast and broccoli under your arm is the definition of an unhealthy obsession. Dedication helps. Obsession hinders.
By engineering your whole day around bodybuilding, you are limiting yourself. It’s also a sign that you are trying to overcompensate for something. Your body is not as fragile as the mainstream bodybuilding magazines want you to believe. A slice of pizza will not kill you. By eating a little dirty food, you reducing some of the pressure in your head.
It’s better to schedule your cheat meals to avoid binge eating, though. In order words – plan your “failures”. Do yourself a favor and follow a semi-clean diet. Don’t be a food whore, but also don’t become a food snob.

Q: Is it true that modern fitness models and bodybuilders don’t eat as clean as they say?
Yes. They cheat all the time but get away with it because they have a higher metabolic rate due to the incredibly amount of muscle they are carrying. Of course, many also take fat burning drugs that speed up the process even more. You will be hard pressed to find a bodybuilder or a fitness model who actually eats like a saint. Truth be told, the eat clean thing is nothing but a show for the camera and social media. Those liars cheat all the time.
