Nutrition & Supplementation
Proper nutrition and supplementation can get confusing if we do not understand the benefits between whole foods and supplements. It is extremely easy to fall into the “unhealthy” category if we do not watch what we eat.
We all know that healthy eating and fitness goes hand in hand. A healthy eating plan gives your body the necessary nutrients it needs every day while staying within your daily calorie goal.
Emphasize on eating a lot of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products to include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts.
Do Limit yourself on the saturated and trans fats, sodium, and added sugars. Can you really see yourself eating fast foods every day? If we want to lose weight, we should definitely be avoiding these kinds of foods. You might be asking, can I have a burger on my cheat day! The answer is Hell yeah you can.. But DO NOT get confused with a cheat meal (Which is what you want) on your “cheat day”. Huge difference!
Everything we eat must be in MODERATION. Period!
When it comes to supplementation, understand that these supplements are not a meal replacement, it’s to supplement/add the calories to pack on weight. I always recommended my students, clients and friends to always start with whole Foods, fish oil, multi-vitamins and post workout shakes.
Last but not least, ensure to exercise portion control.
