How to nail your nutrition in 3 simple steps.
This is the big one. You shouldn’t be worried about the occasional treat; the real impact of food comes from regular patterns and behaviours.
For anyone that knows me knows I love a treat here and there, especially a rainbow paddle pop but, rainbow paddle pops are not breakfast food – shocking I know!
Nutrition, like exercise, takes effort if you’re going to get results. Your job is to do better today than yesterday. Keep it simple, and keep moving forward, and you’ll make changes that will last a lifetime.
“Remember, there are no bad foods, just healthier ones to eat regularly. Weight loss requires a commitment to change your lifestyle. Keep up the exercise as it increases your metabolic rate and helps maintain your muscles, which burn more calories than body fat does”.
1. Keep it simple If you have been following Sunnyside for a while you would have heard me say it, repeatedly – keep it simple!
When it comes to food there is a lot of misinformation and noise out there. Virtually everyone who walks into a gym can give you some sort of advice on what to eat, when to eat, how cavemen lived, why fish are never fat,..... the list goes on. But, as we’ve outlined, real nutrition is fairly simple. This is about making a change that will last, but you won’t want to take it on if it’s too complicated or confusing.
2. Use your trainer
You came to them because of their expertise, you’ve paid them with your hard-earned money, so ask them for help, and listen to what they have to say.
3. Be prepared and follow the plan
Meal prepping is the single most important thing that we can do for ourselves to set us a up for a productive and positive week.
It not only allows us to be accountable for the foods we are eating, but to ensure we are eating the right amount of macros to aline with our health & fitness goals.
You know what exercises you’re doing each week, and why. The same goes for your meal planning. Remember: the combination of exercise and nutrition is more than 400% more effective than exercise alone, so if you’re going to succeed, you’ve got to tackle your nutrition too.
Enjoy being stress free, organised and most importantly kick those goals!.
