“Give them great meals of beef and iron and steel,” wrote Shakespeare in Henry V.  “They will eat like wolves and fight like devils.”

Given a choice, I do not think these fierce warriors would have gone to a fast food joint to get their beef.  It has been established that a McDonald’s average customer finishes his meal in a little over 10min.  I wonder if there is an inverse relationship between the quality and the time it takes to consume it?  I know that in strength training there is—a kid who rushes from set to set will never get strong.

Interesting. They definitely would not have gone there…the “eat what you kill” mentality is that of truly successful people for a reason!
