by David Hare CSCS
There are many benefits to this but chiefly you will actually see what you are really eating. Be honest with yourself and write every detail. Armed with this humbling information there could be simple fixes that could save you pounds of bodyweight over the year.
2. Get really good technique in the key lifts.
3. Go easy on the bread.
4. An apple a day keeps the doctor at bay.
Apples are so handy for a healthy snack, not only are they really good but they are so easily available. Instead of reaching for a bar or crisps next time your peckish, reach for an apple.
5. Eat a breakfast.
6. Always eat after training.
7. Fish Oil works
8. Beware of weekends.
9. Not all calories are created equal.
There is far more to nutrition than just counting your “points” or calorie intake.
Here’s an example of why not it’s not just about how many calories you consume:
If we take two people of fairly equal size and fitness level. We put both people on the same training program and allow each person to eat 3,000 calories per day.
Person A – can only get his calories from lean meats /salmon, fresh fruits and vegetables and sweet potatoes and brown rice
Person B — can only get his calories from candy, ice cream and fast food
After 8 weeks or so, who do you think is going to look better?
Obviously person A.
So even though both people trained the same way and ate the same amount of calories, they will most definitely end up with very different results.
This is why when it comes to calories, it’s not the quantity that’s most important, it’s the quality.
Most if not all traditional cereals are essentially loads of processed sugar in a bowl, yet its the number one choice for people around the country. How essentially sugar ladened processed maize is construed as healthy is just down to clever marketing? A healthy start to day should be back to basics, eggs, lean rashers, organic porridge or muesli. For the busy individual a protein shake with some fruit would be a must better option than your popular cereals.
