Whether you just visit the gym to lose weight, improve your fitness, bodybuilding, or trying for the Olympics, you do need to consider the foods you are eating! Eating the right foods (and avoiding the wrong ones) will help you to get the best benefit from your training, recover quicker, have the best speed or endurance, and achieve the best results.
Just because you are exercising, it doesn't mean you are healthy or getting the best results you can get. If you are eating the wrong foods, eating at the wrong times, not getting enough proteins, antioxidants, fats, vitamins and minerals, your performance will not be as good as it could be! Imagine how good your results could be if you prepared nutritionally for your sport as well as physically, mentally and emotionally!
So what are the best foods to eat and which are those to avoid - that all depends on you! You are different to everyone else, so a personalised plan is required. What is right for someone else may not apply to you, because of your physiology, metabolism, tolerances, your lifestyle and your sport. I keep up with the latest research on which are the best and worst foods, so I can make some recommendations to help you with your health and fitness goals!
