Most people already know protein helps build muscle. However, even if your goal isn't to bulk up, protein is still a very important macro-nutrient. It helps repair and build connective tissue like muscles and tendons. So even if you want to slim down, getting the correct amount of protein in your diet is important to general health.
Fruits & Vegetables
While they're not always the sexiest part of your diet program, fruits and vegetables contain tons of the micro-nutrients (like vitamins and minerals) that your body needs to function like a well oiled machine. Neglecting this aspect of your diet program will negatively impact your health eventually.
Carbohydrate intake can have a huge effect on body composition and health baselines. They happen to be your body's preferred fuel source for energy and have a huge ripple effect on numerous hormone pathways. We'll help show you what kind of carbs are good, what kind of carbs to avoid, and when the best time to consume them is.
Our bodies are made up of over 70% water. Dehydration impacts how well you recover from workouts and how effectively your body's metabolic pathways function. Commonly consumed beverages with caffeine and sugar just contribute to dehydration. Fortunately, we'll help provide you with great tips to help track just how much water you should be replenishing with.
Fat is NOT the enemy. Lipids (the building block of fatty acids) are an important energy source, as well as crucial to hormone regulation. Just like with carbs, we'll show you what the best sources of fat are and why its important for you.
Ideally, you should aim to receive as much nutrients from whole foods as possible. However, supplements used correctly can help account for certain dietary restrictions as well as aid in recovery, digestion, and overall health.
