A crucial component of developing your fitness is paying attention to what you eat day to day. Here’s a few tips for fitness and diet to help you reach your goals:
Aiding proper recovery
Increasing your fitness level involves adaptive responses occurring within your body in the aftermath of the physical exertion you subject your body to. So if your workout incorporated strength training and hypertrophy, then to get the most out of your physical work you need to consume a fuel mix which your body can breakdown and get to your muscles quickly, and you need this without delay. A lot of the carbs you consume at this time should be as simple sugars so your glycogen stores can be replenished quickly, thereby aiding muscle growth. The effect these simple sugars have on your insulin levels also has a sort of anabolic effect in turn, a separate benefit in its own right. Your proteins should be such that they can be digested quickly, and they should have a high biological value; whey protein fulfils both of these requirements. We recommend whey protein isolate, as it’s even more effective.
Prepare for your next workout
Paying close attention to your diet following a workout not only helps you get the most out of that session, as detailed in the paragraph above, but it provides you the opportunity to get even more out of your next workout. This can mean meticulous planning for every meal between one workout and the next, according to the nature of your training program.
Here’s one of the more seldom seen health and fitness tips, but we deem emotional health, diet, and fitness to all be closely related. What we eat can determine the way we feel, and thus our general quality of life. This is even more relevant when we are involved in vigorous physical activity. For example, depending on the training program you’re following you might have been encouraged to increase your protein intake: subject to your metabolic type this may not have the expected outcome anyway, and it could make you feel emotionally unwell in addition. Staying on top of this, and making changes as necessary, makes all the difference.
