Whether you're focused on building lean muscle mass or losing weight, eating right
isn't always fun. But there are people you can find and tools you can use to make the process a whole lot more interesting. For a foodie like me, discovering Kevin Curry and his FitMenCook site was a very happy day. Curry, who says his philosophy is, “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, sculpted in the gym.” Essentially, his point in starting FitMenCook was to show that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and it doesn't require a culinary degree to pull off.
