Healthy Beasts like healthy foods! Nutrition is the KEY to feeling good and performing well (without proper fuel, your body cannot go at full speed). Remember, even beasts start out as pups. Take baby steps into a healthy lifestyle. If you are like me, I spent 25 years as a carbaholic with a sweet-tooth the size of King Kong! But if you want to be strong like King Kong, than you need to start adding some wholesome foods into your life.
