Nutrition and lifestyle choices,take your health and fitness to the next level

Colleen Fisher Fitness is Forever Lifestyle blogImproving your health and losing weight can be a struggle if you only know part of the story. This is where nutrition and lifestyle join forces with exercise breaking through plateaus to help you lose stubborn pounds and take your health and fitness to the next level. No matter what your fitness goals are, taking a closer look at how nutrition and lifestyle affect performance at any level is critical….
Good nutrition can help improve your exercise performance, decrease your recovery time from strenuous exercise, prevent injuries due to fatigue, and provide the fuel required during times of high-intensity training and weight control. Combining good nutrition with exercise also can help reduce the risk of numerous chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis and some cancers.
Do you know all levels of performance require good healthy nutrition for fuel before and after your workouts? Pre and post workout meals can provide the needed energy to make even a tough workout enjoyable today and tomorrow.
Depending on your activity, good fuel timing begins 1-3 hours before your workout with a moderate meal that includes carbohydrates, some fat and some protein. You are laying down the energy foundation for your workout. As you approach your work out time, your choices should be lighter and easy to digest. The fuel you choose needs to be light enough to not weigh you down or make you feel sluggish. In the 30 minutes prior and during your workout keep it light – water, a piece of fruit or a workout drink.
After a good training session, your body’s nutrient reserves are depleted and your window of opportunity for the most gain starts immediately. Begin replacing these vital nutrients as soon as possible and at least within the first 30 minutes to 2 hours following your workout. Similar to your pre-workout meal, this meal must be well rounded consisting of protein, carbohydrates and good fats.
