Have you ever wondered what your trainer has in their fridge? I have! After all, they are just human, surely? They appear super-human: being able to work long hours in the gym, always able to lift heavy things, looking good, full of energy, happy, healthy, dealing with our constant emotions & helping us find our hidden potential; the list goes on. Surely they have a secret, right?
So what gives? How can they do it all? Simple. GOOD NUTRITION. By fueling your body with not only what it wants & what needs, you are ensuring the body is provided with an essential supply of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats & carbohydrates Klw gummies. After all, a balanced diet leads to a balanced lifestyle.
Recently I took advantage of having a peek in my trainers fridge and I believe it’s something that is worthy of sharing. I mean, we are all curious aren’t we? So, what did I find? And, for those of you that don’t want to read between the lines, what didn’t I find?!
Here’s what I found
This isn’t a surprise. Lamb, beef, chicken etc. There was meat. Of course, meat is a great source of protein & as our bodies are constantly using up proteins to build and grow, it is imperative that we continually replace it. So, if you are going to do it, you may as well do it properly. Protein from an animal source is generally a complete protein, meaning it contains the essential amino acids that the body needs. Furthermore, if you consume good quality organic grass fed meats, you’re also going to get a nice clean source of saturated fat. Yes, that’s right – these are the good fats, the ones that provide the body with slow burning and longer lasting energy, leaving us feeling full for longer with no nasty insulin spike.
Here’s some food for thought! What you eat for breakfast sets up your neurotransmitter production for the day. By eating a fantastic breakfast of protein & fats (like meat & nuts or meat & avocado) you’re setting yourself up for a fantastic day, not only with neurotransmitter function, but it also gets the body started on its natural daily detoxification process, sets up your metabolism & leaves you feeling full and satisfied for longer.
Again another great source of protein & fantastic for those days when you just don’t feel like eating meat. What makes fish even better is it’s omega-3 content. The brain comprises of over 60% fat, and of that more than half is DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 fatty acid. This explains why omega-3 has been given the name brain food & why a deficiency in omega-3 can lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and even Alzheimer’s disease. Not only does consuming fish high in omega-3 make you feel better, it can also make you look better! Yep, omega-3 has the capacity to increase your insulin sensitivity. This means your body will be less prone to creating insulin after a meal & you will store less fat.
