How Fit Are Clean Eaters?

How Fit Are Clean Eaters? You are what you eat, as the saying goes. But does that translate into your level of fitness? A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests there might be a correlation.

Analyzing the food consumption habits of 2,632 subjects who participated in the 20-year Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults study, researchers came to the conclusion that people who consume lots of fruits and vegetables tend to exhibit greater endurance running stamina while those consuming a lot of meat are typically less fit.

True Strength Moment: Although this study did not break results down by the types of meat consumed, it can be assumed that favoring red meat and deep fried fish would have a larger impact on fitness than eating skinless chicken breast and tuna.
