We live in a multicultural society, and we are eating food from different cultures and countries. We also want to try the new gourmet restaurant or the new diet. Some people want to go vegetarian, but they get tired in the process…
HOW DO WE EAT HEALTHY with all this influence around us?
There are so many options today.. More than ever I Feel. There’ s Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb, Low Fat , High Protien, The Ducan Diet, just to name a few…
The best advice I can give is to find a nutrition plan that works for you. What might work for someone else may not be right for you. Think of it as a way of life, NOT a diet. It’s something you will have to live with day in and day out. It requires Discipline.
The one thing that will work for everyone is to think WHOLE. Lean Protein sources, healthy fats, fresh vegetables & fruits…organic whenever possible. When eating complex carbohydrates stick to unprocessed sources like potatoes and butternut squash. Whole foods – means nothing processed.
When I began strength training, my trainer taught me that if I was going to be training hard I had to eat to supplement my training. That is eating the right food at the right time so I could see the results of what I was training for. Working out alone just wasn’t going to cut it. Eating right had to be integrated in the plan. Soon it became a way of life and I improved with time as did my physique. I wanted to learn more so I went back to school and got certified.
