On a daily basis you must make sure that you are providing your body with proper nutrition to sustain life. All of this changes when you begin to exercise and we make sure to provide you with details on what foods yield the nutrients for your success. We have worked with children ages 5 years old all the way to up to professional athletes. We have worked with fitness enthusiast and other professionals so we realize that the energy requirements are different for a 5 year old compared to an adult. The vitamins and minerals requirements are not the same for a growing child in relation to a teen, young adult, and adult. Everything that you do with us requires energy and that energy comes from food. We provide you with guides for the nutrient dense items instead of foods high in empty calories, sugar, and fat.

When you wake up the morning, do you eat breakfast? This is the most important meal of the day, yet countless studies show that people chose to skip this meal or they chose a meal that is usually quick and easy. Unfortunately, this is not the best way to fuel your body in the beginning of your day after sleeping all night. Plenty of fast food restaurants provide you with a fast and tasty meal but the reality is the nutrients are not the best you can have. We want to make sure that you are eating great since we have you working hard to meet your goals. The last thing we want is for you to be working so hard on the great exercise program we developed for you and then let your results go to waste because you are making poor food choices.

Perhaps you are on the right track with your eating. We will provide you tips on the proper timing of your meals and supplementation to assist with a faster recovery from each bout of exercise. Even on your days off from training you still need to make great choices because your body is repairing tissue on a constant basis. You must provide the proper environment for your body to thrive. What about weight loss? Is a diet the best way to go? Short term a diet will help you lose water weight and lean muscle mass since you are depriving your body of vital nutrients. As soon as you begin eating more foods you will regain the weight you have lost plus more because your body is working to store more calories just incase you go back into starvation mode again. Diets cause you to go into starvation mode which slows down your metabolism. A slower metabolism is what leads to greater weight gain. We make sure we guide you to success through our meal and supplement recommendations.
