#2 Everything plays a role when fueling for fitness!
During this morning’s Fueling for Fitness breakout session, I had the opportunity to learn how to properly think about real food in the fueling process.
Proteins: Helps body tissue, nutrients, not used easily for energy, supplements are often not needed, can come from both plant and animal sources.They have 4 c/gram
Fats: This is your reserve team! They protect organs and help hormones. They have 9 calories/gram. Unsaturated fats (oil, avocado, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish) are the preferred fats.
Water: This is the MOST important part! It ensures you are hyrdrated. Your body is 55-60% of body weight!
The athlete’s plate should be an even distribution across these segements!
I will be reviewing this session and other learnings later this week during my detailed recaps, but I’ll leave you with this crazy fact: The average American exercises 17 minutes per day!
