  • Eat 6-8 meals a day.
  • Increase the amount of food you actually eat per serving.

  • Eat lean meat, it is rich in protein and is a good basic building block for increasing muscle.
  • Eat fibre rich foods, such as oatmeal, wheat, vegetables and fruits.

  • Drinking an increased amount of water throughout the day.

 

Tips to help hydrate yourself throughout your day...

  • Start your day with a cup of hot water with a squeeze of fresh lemon. This will start your digestive system off for the day, and you will feel refreshed after a long sleep.
  • Try to get into a daily routine of drinking a glass of water after breakfast, before lunch, after lunch, before dinner, after dinner, and before you go to bed. This may seem a lot of glasses of water, but your daily recommended intake is 6-8 glasses or 2.5litres (on a day without exercise).
  • Having a glass of cold water when you start to feel hungry will reduce the hunger pangs. This is due to the body’s confused state of mild feelings for thirst with mild hunger.
  • Weight loss can be aided by drinking water before and after meals. This reduces the actual amount of food you consume, as your stomach feels fuller from the water. It also can help prevent you from going back for second helpings.
  • Drink water throughout the day by keeping a bottle of water with you. This makes water easily accessible whilst still working and is more time effective, than having to go to the kitchen to make cups of tea and coffee, when trying to meet those important deadlines.
  • Drinking water instead of caffeine based drinks and alcohol, aids recovery and helps make you feel revitalised. Caffeine and alcohol act as diuretics, which causes the body to lose water.

 

Macronutrients and Micronutrients explained...

  • As you may or may not already know that it is vital that you have a balanced diet, not just for training, but to live a healthy lifestyle. Different foods contain different nutrients; and the nutrients are categorised into two macronutrients and micronutrients.
  • Macronutrients consist of Proteins, Carbohydrates, healthy Fats.
  • Micronutrients consist of Vitamins and Minerals.
  • You need to know what are the correct amounts needed for your body to function optimally. NOT to have a deficiency such as in the Atkins Diet, Slimming World diet, Weight Watchers diet, to name a few that do this. So book a nutritional consultation today and learn how to eat the correct amounts YOUR body needs to function optimally, and to change your thoughts on healthy eating over "diets".

 

Macronutrients and their calorie values...

  • Macronutrients are metabolised differently and provide different amounts of calories.
    • Average 1gram of Protein provides around 4 calories.
    • Average 1gram of Carbohydrates provides around 4 calories.
    • Average 1gram of Fat provides around 9 calories.
  • Calculating macronutrients enables you to hit your daily calorie intake within these correct values.
