Eating Right

Nutrition is Everything….really, it is.

Have you ever wondered why you’re working your butt off at the gym, but you still are not losing weight? Not setting PR’s? Not improving your times? Well, it’s probably because you’re not addressing the most important aspect of being an athlete; nutrition.

Training, determination, and heart are all important to your athletic success, but the fuel you put in your body to achieve that success is of utmost importance. What you buy at the grocery store makes a huge difference in your appearance and your performance. What you eat shows itself in your complexion, your eyes, and your ability to be alert. Subsequently, what your body is processing determines your improvement, your success.

“You are what you eat” is such a commonly used phrase. But regardless of it’s commonness, it’s so undoubtedly true! This article found on Women’s Day discusses Foods That Look Like Body Parts They Are Good For. In all honesty, it’s hard to believe that it’s coincidence that the food we eat has such an uncanny resemblance to the body parts we are aiding…there is a reason why we push proper nutrition so much.

I don’t care if you’re a vegan, a vegetarian, zone eater, strict paleo, or just taking baby steps to reduce sugar intake, as long as you’re eating healthy, you’re WAY ahead of the game. Keep it up, you have more than half of the battle won 🙂
