This piece of the fitness puzzle has been weighing heavy on my mind. I often wonder how many people truly understand how important nutrition is when it comes to sculpting your body. The way I see it is ..if you don't have your nutrition spot on, you are wasting your time going to the gym. Yes, weight training and cardio are important, but they are only going to work if we feed our body the right fuel. Visualize that poor body working hard, but never receiving the fuel it needs to grow and sculpt.
The right supplements are important before and after we workout.
The KEY factor to putting on lean muscle mass is protein. We all know what types....chicken, fish, eggs, lean red meat. (elk, buffalo and moose are my favorites)
For carbs....sweet potatoes,oatmeal, lentils, steamed brown rice. I like to have them early in the morning and then taper off to greens later in the day.
You all know the drill....I'm just speaking outloud right now. BUT..if you are not seeing the results you would like..maybe you should take an honest look at what you are eating. Are you journaling every morsal that goes in your mouth?? Are you drinking your water?? Are you choosing a good tea over coffee and diet sodas??
I know when I am honest with myself I start seeing results. It's amazing how quick my body will change when I'm feeding my temple the proper fuel. I am even changing my way of thinking when it comes to free day or a free meal. I can ALWAYS make better bad choices. The Eating for LIFE cookbook is filled with wonderful recipes.
Keep going STRONG everyone.
EAT CLEAN, Train Hard and DREAM BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
