Your body is the vehicle and food is your fuel. Where do you want to go today and will you have the energy to get there?
What you choose to eat can make or break your ability to perform that day either mentally or physically. Eating right helps to give you energy and vitality.
It has often been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why is this? It is thought that breakfast (Named because you have been fasting all night while you are sleeping is a literal Break of a Fast) is how your body gets going again, setting the stage for the amount of energy you will have for the rest of the day.
Eating frequent well-portioned meals for your body size and goals throughout the day is ideal. They should be a proportional mix of protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and fruits, and healthy fats as well. Having a well-rounded menu that changes and incorporates a variety of items can help you get the most nutrients and keep your body working its best.
Let’s take a look at some of the most nutrient-packed foods you can eat on a regular basis and make the staple of your diet or interchange for variety and to help alleviate boredom. Once you find a base you are happy with it becomes easy to expand from there.
Proteins – Lean Meats (Steak, Chicken, Turkey, Pork, Eggs, Beef, fish, soybeans)
Carbohydrates – Potato, Sweet Potato, Rice, Beans, Quinoa, Fruits
Vegetables – All green vegetables, Mushrooms, Carrots, Tomato, Peppers, Squash, Corn, Cauliflower, and many more.
Healthy fats – Avocado, Coconut/MCT Oil, Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts, Dark Chocolate, Cheese, Whole Eggs, Fatty Fish, Chia Seeds, and more.
Try working out on two different days doing a combination of cardio and some weight training it doesn’t have to be anything super strenuous. Total 45 minutes.
Day 1. Before the gym. Fast – Don’t eat anything at all – Just drink water and make sure you are hydrated. This is what is known as fasted cardio and training. Record how you feel, how much weight you were comfortable lifting and how many reps you could do without really pushing it. If your goal is simply to burn fat and slim down, fasted cardio may be your way to go, but if you are trying to build stamina and build muscle as well, proceed to day 2.
Day 2. Before the gym. Mix 2 Tablespoons for RAW Honey and 50 grams of dry instant oatmeal. Stir it up till it becomes a paste – eat with a spoon. It looks weird. But it is actually quite tasty. Now work out. You should notice a measurable difference in energy both in your cardio and weight session and may even be able to do more reps at a slightly heavier weight. Why? Because your body is feeding itself with carbs and natural sugar during the workout itself as the depletion is happening it’s also refeeding giving you energy and added strength. Notice how you feel in comparison to the day before. Is there a difference?
