Nutrition – Tailor Your Nutrition to Achieve Your Fitness Goals!
I have an aggressive approach when it comes to achieving results. Now when I say this I don’t want to come across as arrogant, but rather come across as logical. For example, I know that its easier to walk with comfortable shoes and its certainly easier to fly from my home here in Atlanta to New York instead of driving. These examples may seem silly to you, yet many people don’t use this logic when trying to prepare for an athletic event or when trying to accomplish certain physical goals.
I want to address the importance of nutrition. First, when competing in athletic related events or just trying to be in the best shape of your life nutrition is 90% of the total program. If you look at certain athletes and events this is obvious when you actually take the time to think about it. If you have seriously competed in any event in the past then you know how true this really is. Nutrition goes beyond just eating healthy even though healthy eating is a good start. You must have an understanding of nutrition and how it relates to you and your specific program.
For instance, if you are a competitive cyclist you certainly have to make sure that you get a sufficient amount of calories before competition. Though here the key is not just eating everything in sight. If you are an endurance athlete like a cyclist or runner you want the extra calories, but you want to make sure you take in many complex carbohydrates such as rice, pasta, potatoes, and breads. These will provide sufficient energy for you that will last you for an extended amount of time because of the time it takes the body to break these nutrients down. Conversely the individual trying to lose weight wants to try to limit these in their diet.
The bottom line is to make sure that you are informed and that you are being logical about the fuel you put into your body. This is the secret to your physical success!
