Deep Thoughts From Matthew McConaughey

OK, so I am not sure Matthew McConaughey is one for giving advice on how to live your life, but let's face it, the man is ridiculously fit. I am loving his interview in Men's Health magazine and I especially love his mellow outlook on working out and being healthy. He said:

There are some people who are so strict that they become a slave to their healthy lifestyle, a slave to working out, a slave to eating just the right foods. I've seen it happen to other people, and I'm guilty of going overboard with it. And when you do, man, you're no frickin' fun at all. You have to be more flexible and enjoy having things. I'm not going to a friend's barbecue and say, 'I'm gonna stick to salad.' Who's gonna enjoy that? Lighten up! It's your lifestyle, not your life.

I'm actually taking this advice to heart because I sometimes find myself in that super-crazy health mode that's truly "no frickin' fun" — who knew he was so insightful?
