I was going over some little tips of mine with a few of the athletes that I coach regarding when you can tell you are doing things right. I figured I would start sharing.
One of my particular favorites is that your trash should smell really bad. It is a good indicator that you are getting lots of good, fresh food and that those scraps are decomposing (food prep scraps that is-you should be eating everything on your plate). Also, non-edible components of good foods (e.g. egg shells, bones/connective tissue from meat,) smell really bad when they rot.
What are your favorites?
