Our approach to improve nutrition focuses on these three things; nutrient timing, food amount, and food type. Nutrient timing is important because the wrong food at the wrong time sabotages training efforts. Conversely, the right food at the right time enhances those efforts. Food amount and food type are important because eating the right type and amount of food will 1) help improve and maintain your health, 2) provide your body with high quality energy sources for optimal performance, and 3) help facilitate and enhance your body transformation goals so you feel, look, and perform better all because you are in fact “healthier”.
The bottom line is this – we simply cannot achieve optimal health and performance if we have a poor diet. But, not eating poorly is only part of the solution. We have to replace deleterious foods with functional foods. Our body needs fuel to perform and nutrients to facilitate fundamental bodily functions; we have an amazingly robust system that will run on a wide range of diets, but we ultimately decide how well it will function by feeding it the right fuel. Whether your goal is weight loss, weight maintenance, improving sports performance, rehabilitation, and/or gaining lean muscle mass, what we eat is going to play a crucial role.
