It's just something to do so you're not lost in your own not-so-nice thoughts, and it's an opportunity to think about something a lot nicer and to do something that's with more purpose.

    I'm not content. What I've accomplished already was good, and it was needed at the time in order for me to move on, but I'm so hungry I can't even tell you what was, I'm concentrating on what is to be.

    My understanding about nutrition is not what I'd like it to be, so for a long time my dieting strategy was very crude. It's only very recently that I started to accept different ideas like using vegetables and natural seasonings that don't compromise the sodium and caloric value of the food while at the same time giving it some flavor. I'm still evolving; everybody is or at least should be in bodybuilding.

    I spend so much money on food, just getting the food for me is a tremendous expense, so there's no way I could even think about paying for supplements.
