Our four primary goals:

Five groups of nutrients plus water for optimal health:

  • Proteins
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Water
Protein, carbohydrates, and fats contain calories which fuels our body. Vitamins, minerals, and water do not contain calories, however man of them are involved in energy processes.

Calories are great to have in our body for the energy it gives us to workout and think.  The kind of calories you don't need come from alcohol (such as in beer, wine and liquor) however in most cases they do not contain any nutrients therefore not providing good energy for working out or thinking.

Protein per pound of weight:

Inactive Adult                 0.3                      0.8
Average Person            0.4-0.5                0.9-1.1
Endurance Training     0.5-0.7                1.2-1.4
Weight Training           0.7-0.8               1.6-1.7
1 kilogram =2.2 pounds
Works out 3-4 times a week (aerobic and or strength training)

Your body can only take in so much protein at once so make sure to spread out your protein throughout the day.

Source of protein:

  • Meat
  • Seafood
  • Eggs
  • Dairy products
  • Poultry
Foods such as nuts, seeds and vegetables contain some protein. You can determine the % of calories from protein by dividing the protein calories by the total calories on a label.

Your body is a machine, protein is what you are made up of and carbohydrates is the fuel that makes you go.  

Carbohydrates primary function is to provide the body with fuel for energy.

Simple carbohydrates are naturally in some plants and what we sure as table sugar. You will also find these sugars in fruit and honey. Lactose, is also a simple sugar carbohydrate that brakes down too fast and give you energy immediately but then leaves you feeling tired and sluggish. Lactose you can find in milk.

Simple carbohydrates include:
  • Granulated sugar
  • Candy
  • Soft drinks
  • Fruit drinks
Complex carbohydrates brake down slowly in the body and give you long steady energy for several hours. This is because most sources also contain fiver and other materials that slow the digestive process.

Complex carbohydrates include:
  • Pasta
  • Bread
  • Potatoes
  • Vegetable
  • Rice
  • Bagels
You should eat complex carbohydrates regularly to provide you with nutrition and energy .
You may think that if you eat more carbohydrates then you should have more and more energy but there is always a limit. When the body has more than enough glucose from carbs than it needs for energy, extra glucose is stored in the muscles and liver as glycogen. When the muscles and liver have stored all it can handle, excess is converted to fat.

45-65% of your total calories. Make sure that your carbohydrates are fiver-rich.

  • Whole grains
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Legumes
Eating too many carbs can lead to energy imbalance (more calories consumed than burned), causes weight gain.

Good source of fiber include:

  • Vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower
  • Whole-grain breads and cereals
  • Fruits, such as apples and oranges
  • Beans and peas
Fiber is an important part of our diets because it plays an important role in elimination and has show to help maintain a healthy intestinal trace and so much more.

Always talk with your doctor first before starting any diet or exercise plan.
