Lately, there have been a few posts about weight gain in a couple of the rideshare groups I belong to - and as a bodybuilder 6 days a week for 7 years now, I’d like to share for anyone who cares, how to at least make better choices.
Cook at home. A small ice chest can hold up to 4 or 6 meals. I eat mine room temp or right out of the ice chest. It isn’t that big a deal. Steaks sliced up. Baked radishes and baked asparagus. A little seasoning and a lot goes a long way. If I have a day where I don’t feel like cooking which happens - burgers with no bun no sauce, or Chipotle bowl with double meat and double veg is my “go to.“
Get rid of the carbs, bad sugars and such. I happen to follow a strict Keto diet, but I also use the gym 6 days a week at 03:30 or 04:00 am. I opened my own business and drove Lyft and Uber ( I drive to pay the business debt off and am proudly 95% done paying it ) and will continue to drive as to me this is easy money. I agree there are some issues with both platforms lack of pay these days, but I also have made it work. I know we see negative all day about pay.
Fitness and diet have changed ALL aspects of my life, and a lot of how we feel daily affects our pay. I can’t tell you how many pax admire, compliment and I swear tip on my dedication and drive ( no pun intended ). Lifting 100-pound suitcases and smiling at the same time is $$$$. And I keep a positive attitude at all times. Even bad days. I’m human.
Anyway - I hope everyone can implement some form of fitness and healthy eating. I find the time, and I’m working 79 hours a week between driving and my business. I use three 24 hour gyms … and sleep 5 hours a day. So it CAN be done. It’s just working.
Stay happy and healthy . This line of work isn’t that bad …
Ribeye, salmon, baked radishes, cauliflower mashed, pork stuffed poblanos … and I shop CHEAP! Trust me.
