Nutrition

First off, nutrition has never been my thing. It takes A LOT of mental strength to resist certain foods or stick to a certain dietary plan. I’m a food lover and love variety, so I pretty much eat everything. I believe, if you workout 4-5 times a week, do a moderate amount of walking/running throughout the day, and lift weights, then you too would be able to eat whatever you wanted. However, if you spend most of your life being sedentary, then the only way for you to keep your body looking healthy/fit is through a healthy diet. In this section, I will post whatever I find on certain diets and health benefits of certain foods to keep you mindful about what you are eating. Remember: EVERY MEAL COUNTS, so be mindful about what you are putting into your body. After all, “you are what you eat.” FYI for those of you wanting to get those nice 6 pack abs, a diet is a MUST, unless you’re a genetic freak. 

 

Typical Day of Eating for Me

Breakfast: it’s the most important meal of the day, so start off on a good, healthy note!

Preworkout meal/Lunch: keep it light so it’s just enough to get you through the workout, but not enough to make you feel full or bloated!

Post-workout meal: Eat immediately after your workout. Make sure there’s a good source of protein to get your body to start recovering so you’re not as sore in the morning.

Last but not least, dinner. A heavy meal that has all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your body full and happy throughout the night.
