Bell explained and revealed a few food combinations by stating, “The worst options are potato chips. The worst options are cheese, the worst options are things that have fat and carbohydrates together. Try to find a better option.” He described and suggested some healthier options people can rely on.

He said, that instead of succumbing to the allure of unhealthy snacks, Bell stresses prioritizing protein-rich foods. Lean sources of meat, such as steak or chicken, become the cornerstone of his nutrition strategy. He also advocates for the use of supplements like “Steak Shake or This is the Whey Protein,” which are helping him meet his protein intake goals. He usually aims for “1-1.5x bodyweight in grams of protein.” The 47-year-old’s mantra revolves around viewing food as energy.

Moreover, he encourages a mindful approach, questioning the genuine need for energy in each food choice. He identifies the trap of “fake hunger,” a situation where the craving is for quick, often unhealthy options instead of wholesome alternatives like steak, chicken, or eggs, as he mentions in his post caption.

Mark’s journey into fitness and health goes beyond personal achievements. In his late 40s, he continues to inspire by opening the doors of Super Training Gym in West Sacramento for free weekend workouts, inviting the public to experience and benefit from his expertise.
