No wonder why people are confused!
But…there is one key takeaway you do need to know: Nutrition is 80% of the battle. You simply can't “out exercise a bad diet”. The better your nutrition is, the more success you’re going to have. So what are some keys to know and understand if you want to get the best from your nutrition plan?
Watch Your Portions
Skip the seconds (or thirds), and stick with one plate of food. Watching your portions helps you control how many calories you’re currently eating.
And when your calories stay within the right ranges, the better shot you have at losing weight, having more energy, or building muscle.
Don’t Go Overboard on Cutting Calories
Sometimes people, when trying to lose weight (and are having a hard time seeing results), will cut too many calories from their daily intake. And when this happens, they often struggle to reach their goal.
Your body is designed to conserve in times of energy deficiency, which often happens when you cut calories too drastically.
You need to consume the right amount of calories if you’re going to see changes.
Find The Right Balance
Do you need carbs? How much protein do you need? What about fruits and vegetables?
If you’re going to lose weight, you need to find the right balance that works for your body. And that should include some items from these groups:
- Easily-digested carbs
- Healthy fats
- Complex carbs
The right balance of nutrients will stabilize your energy, and get you on the right path to losing weight—or reaching your ultimate goal.
If you’re looking to get the best results from your program, changing your nutrition is going to be key. In fact, changing your nutrition is 80% of the battle.
And this is why you should be researching the right approach that will fit with your goals, and adding them to your current routine, if you’re looking for the best results.
