You might have heard the saying “you are what you eat.” It’s not about the specific foods, but rather to suggest that when you eat healthy and according to your body’s unique needs, you feel better, perform with greater intensity, boost your productivity, and generally have a better outlook and approach to life.
The trouble is, it’s not always easy to maintain ideal nutrition. That’s especially true when you’re busy with life, school, child care, and other obligations. The good news is that there are ways you can keep your wellness goals and do better with each passing day. Here are some of the most popular:
Plan Healthy Meals Ahead
If you’re like most people, you might have a “grab and go” lifestyle that’s sometimes hectic and might seem out of control. That’s when it’s easy to choose options that might be not be the best match to help you achieve and maintain your goals.
Instead of fast food or high-calorie options, select meals and snacks that are rich in protein. This will help boost your metabolism and help you feel fuller for longer. You should also reach for healthy fats, and strive to remove excess and/or added sugar from your diet.
Keep in mind that nutrition alone isn’t enough. You want and deserve daily motivation that feeds your mind, body, and soul. At CrossFit WaterSide, you’re not just a number. You’re part of a team and family that’s larger than just one person.
Strive for a Balanced Diet
You might already be familiar with the food pyramid. While health professionals continually tweak and perfect this graph (so you might see some changes), the basic foundation remains true, and a solid starting point. Of course, you’ll also have your own personal requirements and nutrition goals.
The main idea is to boost those foods that help you achieve and maintain your goals, and eliminate items that don’t do anything to assist your advancement, and might even make you feel sluggish or uncomfortable.
Be Vigilant about Nutrients
Maybe you’re already focused on getting the right balance of nutrients. Or perhaps you’re just starting out with a meal plan that works perfectly into your routine. Whatever your specific needs, it’s nice to know how simple and straight-forward it can be to begin eating better.
For example, macronutrients include carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. Micronutrients are found in vitamins and minerals. You’ll also want to be aware of antioxidants and phytochemicals. If all of this sounds overly-complicated, it doesn’t have to be. Trained professionals are on hand who can help you achieve the ideal balance for your health and wellness ambitions.
