Nutrition can be incredibly confusing.
Especially when you are trying to get specific results, and it doesn’t help that there are a lot of opposing views being marketed to us all of the time.
How do we clear a path to a better you?
As the Education Director for Living.Fit, I give a pretty simple and effective way to create lifelong change in your nutrition, by a small and slow and steady approach.
Marcus Martinez, our Kettlebell Master Coach, gives another incredibly simple way to make effective and easy changes to your nutrition.
Finding what works for you requires some experimentation and tracking. The best diet in the world might not be the best diet for you personally. It’s important to be mindful of the way your body responds to certain foods and meal timing. Even the “healthiest” foods in the world might cause a gut reaction that makes it less optimal for you.
The same goes for meal timing. Fasting is all the rage and has helped many people, but if it’s too physically or mentally demanding for you then it doesn’t matter what good it could potentially do.
Finding a balance of macronutrients (protein, fat and carbs) as well as micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to sustain you while helping you achieve your physical goals. Maintaining a food journal (at least for a few days) can give valuable insight into your nutrition and how it affects your energy and mood.
For more information on nutrition, we have hired a registered dietitian, nutritionist, and CSCS on to the Living.Fit staff, Julia Glanz. She is here to create a clear path to a better you, in the area of nutrition and fitness.
We are really excited to see her knowledge and coaching skills unfold on this platform and beyond.
