Nutrition is a key factor in maintaining the health of your body and mind. What you feed your body is very important, as this is what gets processed to fuel your mind, fuel your body, and build muscle.
Why should you care what you eat? Well, first off, one has to consider how many calories they intake in a day. Eating more calories than you burn causes weight gain, and if you aren't bulking or intentionally trying to build up mass, this can be a negative factor. Knowing how much to eat can be a game changer for your health. Apps like Fitbit or Apple's health app can help you calculate your intake.
Another factor is what you eat. Eating junk food, ignoring fruits and vegetables can cause you to have nutrient deficiencies or to have too many unhealthy fats in your diet. Ideally, to maintain muscle function and overall health, one should eat a blend of good proteins, carbs, and healthy fats. Protein often gets forgotten, but it builds, repairs, and strengthens your muscles, allowing better performance in both young and older individuals. A great protein supplement we recommend is our Wellness Code® Advanced Whey Protein Isolate (Vanilla) 454g or our Wellness Code® Plant Protein Complete & Amino Acid Complex (Vanilla) 450g if you prefer a plant based protein supplement.
Eating a healthy diet can benefit your cholesterol levels, can improve your performance, and will make you feel great. Take care of yourself and stay healthy!
