The flyer I’m posting today is one of the first flyers I handed out to my groups after I qualified nearly 2 years ago. It’s in really simple point form and is still the format I base my nutritional information on now. You also get a bonus post workout protein meal on the bottom to keep with our theme this term.
“Food is fuel”
*We need to think of food as a fuel source
*Eating every 2 to 4 hours keeps metabolism firing
*When we get hungry we make poor choices
*Does emotion beat logic when you eat???
*When our bodies go into starvation mode we end up storing more body fat
*Always think- Is this nutrient rich food?
*Carbs and good fats are our energy source
*Protein is for repair
*Eat protein and carbs post exercise to keep energy levels high and repair
*Beware the media portray eating junk food as being normal $$$$$$$$
