SPORTS NUTRITION

Without proper nutrition for performance, recovery and nourishment, you are doing your body a disservice with all the hard work that goes into training. Poor nutrition results in your progress being confined to sub-optimal standards. Your training will improve if you nourish your body with the necessary building blocks to recover and repair from the breakdown of muscle tissue that goes on when exercising. Supplements are vital for athletes to succeed and should not be used to compensate a poor diet. When combined with the best possible diet and controlled exercise regime this can create optimal health and peek performance.

Factors That Can Prevent You from Losing Weight
We should be mindful of calories, but it is not always about calories consumed and calories burned to lose weight and keep it off. Instead we need to look at metabolic capacity, the chemistry of food, and how each individual body responds and reacts. Nutrient dense whole foods, supplements, and good quality proteins fats and oils, are required for athletes to succeed. There are other factors that can prevent someone from losing weight no matter how much they exercise or how restricted their diets are.

These include:

  • Poor Metabolic capacity (extreme dieting) yo-yo dieting
  • Chronic Stress (high amounts of Cortisol in the blood)
  • Overburdened Liver
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Intestinal Health
  • Constipation
  • Poor digestive capacity
  • Food sensitivities/Allergies
  • Auto Intoxication
