Nutrition Advice From a Trainer

 

Can’t afford a personal trainer?  Here’s some advice from trainer Jose Ruiz:

                  For most people, nutrition seems to be the only thing standing between them and their fitness goals.  Here are some of the most common mistakes people make when trying to diet:

 

1.     Not eating enough:  Not consuming enough food, or enough of the right foods, can hinder your fat loss goals.

2.     Eating too much:  This is important, not just for metabolism, but for energy balance and to provide your body with steady nutrients so it can continue to change.

3.     Thinking in terms of 24-hour energy balance:  Just because you may need to eat 200 grams of carbohydrates per day, it does not mean that all your meals should contain the same number of carbs, because your body will only use what it needs at the time and store the rest.  You need more energy from carbs in the morning, when your body is going to be using them for energy throughout the day, than you do just before you go to bed.

4.     Not paying attention to meal and nutrient timing:  This goes back to rule No. 4 and will make a big difference in the way your body burns calories and fat.

5.     Not consuming enough fats:  Fats are essential for the production of nearly every hormone.  They are important for metabolic function, skin health, immune health and many other things.  Essential fatty acids, especially omega-3 fatty acids, are largely responsible for many of these benefits.  Fish oil, which contains the omega-3 acids DHA and EPA, can provide some outstanding benefits for anyone trying to get the best possible body.

6.     Not drinking enough water:  And this does not mean only when you are thirsty.  If you are feeling thirsty, you are already starting to dehydrate.
