Ever Wonder What’s In My Fridge?

Share This:

I’m showing this picture of my fridge for two reasons:

1. The likelihood that it will ever be this this clean again is slim to none, and I wanted photographic evidence. I’m pretty sure Britney Spears has a better shot at writing a Pulitzer Prize winning book on motherhood than my fridge has at staying this clean.

2. To show exactly what a fridge should look like if you’re really serious about looking better naked. Lets be honest, if you have easy access to crap (cookies, ice-cream, potato chips, soda, etc), you’re going to eat it. Conversely, if you take the necessary strides to fill your fridge (and cupboards- I know where you hide your chocolate stash. You’re not fooling anyone) with wholesome, nutritious foods- you’re more apt to eat them! Yes, it’s really that simple.

I’m always asked what the key is to fat loss or getting lean is. People want to hear me tell them about some elaborate training system from some remote Eastern Bloc country, or some secret fat-burning supplement that’s going to work miracles while they sit on their ass all day. Truth be told, their first line of defense is generally going to come down to the food in their house. How someone can expect to get results by eating Ho-Ho’s or Spaghetti O’s every day is beyond me.

Every weekend I make my grocery list and head down to Trader Joe’s, as well as a few other local markets. And while I may have a few wild-cards or miscellaneous items here and there- for the most part, my list stays relatively the same week in and week out:

8-10 cartons of eggs (2 of which are Omega-3 eggs)

4-5 packages of lean meat- ranging from chicken breast to ground turkey, and 90% lean beef

5-6 containers of cottage cheese

I carton of organic milk

3-4 containers of Chobani Greek Yogurt

7-8 packages of frozen veggies (usually broccoli and green beans)

3-4 containers of salsa

3-4 packages of fresh colored peppers (that I dice up and put into a large bin)

1-2 containers of pre-diced veggies: onions/carrots/celery (that I add to the same bin)

Various fresh fruit ranging from Gala apples, pears, bananas, to bags of frozen mixed berries.

Miscellaneous items as needed: rolled oats, Ezekiel bread, butter, olive oil, flax seeds, natural peanut butter, canned pumpkin, spices, and about 200 rolls of toilet paper for obvious reasons. Oh, and is that new Kelly Clarkson cd? *But since you’ve been goooooooone. I can breath for the first time……….*

I’ve mentioned this before, but it bares repeating- you’re never going to out-train a poor diet. Likewise, do yourself a favor and go through your fridge and cupboards tonight, and get rid of the shit. Yes, that includes your 100 calorie snack packs! If those foods aren’t there to tempt you, you’re not going to eat them.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
