5 Basic Nutrition Tips To Help Improve Training Performance

🟢 Eat Whole Foods Over Packaged Variations

- Shop around the outside of the shop (The aisles have processed foods)

- Fruits, Vegetables, Dairy, Poultry, Meats, Nuts, and Seeds

- If it's in a packet, there are likely some added oils, sugars, and additives that are not natural or could negatively affect your health

🟢 Serving Sizes

- Be aware of how many calories are in a serving

- Be aware of how much a serving is (How many grams or mils)

- Weight out your food!

🟢 Macronutrient Profile

- Consume adequate Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, Water & Fibre

- For the average person, consuming;

  • Double your body weight in protein (2g Protein per 1KG bodyweight)

  • Your body weight in fats (0.8-1.1g/kg of body weight)

  • 25-35g of Fibre

  • 1ml per calorie consumed (This excludes water consumed during exercise)

  • Consume Carbohydrates to support exercise, but not fat gain

  • Pre and post-workout meals should consume a source of carbohydrates and protein

🟢 The Order of ingredients list

- The higher the item comes up on an ingredients list, means the more of that ingredient is in a packaged food item (So read the Ingredients list!)

- A paragraph on the back of a food item might be detering

🟢 Consume Fruits and Vegetables YOU enjoy

- You might not like broccoli, but if you love Green beans, consume more green beans!

- If it's forced, it's less likely to be a consistent habit

- Be sure to retry some old foods you disliked in the past! You never know what your taste buds will agree with now!
