Focus More on Nutrition
It is said that our nutrition is about 80-85% of our health. I am one to believe this percentage as I’ve seen it first hand in my life, my clients, and my family.
We can log in an hour of exercise, give it all we got, use up all our immediate energy and feel great. The problem is we usually don’t refuel well. We may down some protein powder right before or after a workout, but then 30 minutes later we start getting hungry.
This usually is when we tend to get something we shouldn’t because one, we are hungry, and too we just worked out so we should reward ourselves with whatever sounds good. This is why fast food is an American staple.
If 80-85% of our health is indeed NUTRITION, then our highest priority should be just that—our food – NOT what exercises we are going to do.
This is a recipe for disaster when it’s done over time. The simple workout we gave 100% effort to, can be reversed in no time with the refueling choices. Make your nutrition your focus and your workouts secondary. This will lower your calories to burn and you won’t have to workout as hard, or as much.

Get Enough Protein
Protein usuallly is obtained through meats for the average American, or for the fitness-minded person, it may be whey protein powder.
Whatever your protein endulgence, make sure you are getting ehough and that you are spreading it out instead of getting it all at once.
Sometimes we think we guzzeled it down after a good workout and so we are set until dinner.
If you consume protein throughout the day, and space it out with your meals and snacks, you will most likely see a significant increase in your muscles and a decrease in your hunger.
