Fueling the Athletic Engine

Nutrition. How important is this in your success?

Nutrition is vital for your continued daily progress to meet your fitness or athletic goals. Calories and nutritients are vital for life, and the fact that you exercise means that you need to monitor everything that you put into your system.  For example, fuel that goes in your vehicle comes in different octane levels for peak performance of your engine, we definitely purchase the best for our cars, and so why not give our bodies the same treatment?  Why not fuel our systems with the best components to generate optimal performance?

A variety of foods are needed to meet your nutrition requirements, they include vegetables, fruits, lean meats, poultry, fish, and beans. Of course this is not a full list of food types to consume but more of an condensed list. Saturated fats and trans fats are to be used sparingly, and are usually found in foods such as margarines and shortenings.

Water, minerals, vitamins, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are essential nutrients that need to be consumed in the appropriate balance for ultimate success. In addition, dietary supplements can also be included in the overall meal planning to supplement nutrients.

On our site, we have a link in our store under “USE IT THE PROS DO”, or gitadvocare.com that provides various recommendations of products that will assist with your daily caloric
consumption.

Eat smart, enjoy your food, and fuel your ATHLETIC ENGINE for peak performance!
