Since my interest in bodybuilding had become the focal point of my life, I decided that a specific course of action was essential to becoming Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, or a champion of any kind. Believing that the basic principle of making it to the top was divided equally between exercise and nutrition, I planned on putting 50 percent of my efforts into developing the best possible training program for my body and 50 percent into finding the most beneficial diet for muscular growth. In each case I would experiment until maximum results were achieved in a minimum amount of time and with the least effort.
Feeling confident in this direction, I continued my investigation of bodybuilding diets, constantly adding to a store of information on nutrition When I entered chiropractic college, the courses on nutrition opened my eyes to the relationship between food intake and body chemistry. Each day I discovered fascinating details of my body's makeup that would give me control over its muscular development. Although I learned a great deal, it always seemed there was even more to learn. It is said that "you really have to know something to find out what you don't know." This was certainly true in my case. Often, feeling I finally knew it all, I discovered a new fact that showed I was still making mistakes.
