This information might change your mindset of food. In this post I’ll be covering 3 important things: the importance of food, the effects food has on your body, what meals should consist of.
Food is extremely important not only for muscle growth, but for overall function also. As most of you know, we get our energy from the food we intake. Food needs to be thought of as fuel for our body’s. When looking at it in the perspective, would you rather get your energy from cake or from nutrient rich Whole Foods? 🥦 🥩 I don’t know about you, but I would pick the second option every time. This should have you second guessing your food choices. A good daily balance for meals would be 80% nutrient rich Whole (fuel) Foods and 20% pleasure foods. Food effects one’s body significantly. It’s pretty obvious that certain food choices can decrease risks of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Also, helps maintain a well operating body and healthy organs, but what isn’t obvious is the effect food can have on someone PHYSICALLY and MENTALLY. It’s a proven fact that a poor diet can have negative effects a person’s mental health. I have people ask me how I’m always in a great mood and I honestly believe the food I intake plays a huge role in that! Eating healthier will make you more alert, feel more energized, and put you in a better mood! I guarantee you all, that a healthy diet will change you for the better! lastly, what a meal should consist of! A well rounded meal should involve protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. Good sources of protein are: eggs, chicken breast, steak, fish, turkey, and beans. Good carb sources are: potatoes, rice, pasta, and oats, fruit, and vegetables. Fats are very important and should include: nuts, fat from meat, healthy oils, and natural spreads like almond butter.
With this information I hope you make the right choice and help your body become more healthy. You only get one body, so take care of it and love it. -
