Do you sometimes feel like no matter how hard you work at making good diet and lifestyle choices you don’t seem to feel like your making any progress?
If you’re not currently training what choices are you making to keep yourself healthy? If you’re currently training, have you been able to bring your best effort to each and every training session and still not feeling like your progress and results are fast enough or adequate?
You’re not alone in these feelings and there are plenty of reasons why you might not be achieving the results you want.
The most common reason for lack of progress comes down to the following;
Your effort with your nutrition outside the gym doesn’t match your effort in the gym.
Have you ever trained super hard and felt great only to go home and eat questionably healthy food as a reward for your hard work? Being an athlete requires having habits that match your goals. Most of us know exactly what is healthy but we might not have the habit of eating the things we know we should.
Sometimes when we’re tired and unprepared we may end up slamming a rootbeer float, large fries, and a cheeseburger after a workout, which although delicious it isn’t the best way to ensure your body is getting the nourishment that it needs to repair and recover.
Eating nutrient dense food post training is important so that you can bring your best effort to your next training session. What we eat affects how well we can perform in all aspects of our life such as work, relationships, sports and physical training.
That being said what can you do about it right now?
Focus on getting more positive foods that add health to your daily nutrition. You can start by focusing on eating foods that there’s no controversy or questions about its health benefits. I want you to imagine a plate filled with foods that you know are healthy, is that what your plate normally looks like? By adding nutritionally dense foods into your daily nutrition routine you will start replacing foods that you’re not 100% sure about for foods that are nutrient dense without feeling like you’re restricting yourself.
