How Nutrition Works Best.

Nutrition is of course different for everyone, I have different nutritional needs than you do. Lets talk about what GOOD nutrition is; avoiding adding sugar to foods, getting your omega 3 fats, avoiding trans-fats(its artificial and a chemical creation), getting lots of greens, avoiding refined carbohydrates, avoid taking meal replacement supplements(they mess with your metabolism and other nasty stuff), and the most obvious one is avoiding processed foods! Fresher is ALWAYS better.

Above are some great nutritional facts for everyone, it doesn’t matter who you are these nutrition tips will work for you. Now lets talk about how to realistically apply it to your life, it doesn’t have to be a crazy dramatic change you just have to gradually wean yourself off of what you’re used to and on to better nutrition. For example, eat veggies with your lunch, eat more fish and red meats and not so much bread and other carbs. Start replacing your food with more healthy options and soon enough you’ll actually be craving healthy foods and turn down pizza(hard to believe I know).

Here’s a basic meal plan for a day, use it as a template for your own lifestyle and body. For breakfast: eat a high protein breakfast, eggs, nuts, milk, cottage cheese, ground beef(aka, omelet or something). For lunch: this is the best time to get your greens and good fats in, such as spinach, winter greens, kale, celery, broccoli. Good fats would be: avocados, fish, chia seeds, eggs, coconut. For dinner: You want to finish off your day with healthy proteins and vitamins which you can get through beef, chicken, fish and salads.

Another tip for nutrition would be NEVER MISS BREAKFAST, that’s your fuel for the day!! The second would be, make your lunch(mid-day meal) the BIGGEST meal of the day!!

I hope this was helpful to you! I won’t be posting workouts until probably next week, I’m unable to workout at this time. Check out my Instagram @lookingglassfitness for videos of my workouts and pictures fo delicious food!
