Exercise and Nutrition the Simple and Sustainable Way

My goal is to provide you with exercise and nutrition advice that is simple, easy to follow, and gives you lasting results. Simplifying exercise and nutrition advice is a difficult task. You don’t need to know all of the details to start making changes in your life. Starting out by following certain principles will let you progress while you’re still learning all of the details. The best way to get and keep a healthy, good-looking body is to strength train with compound exercises, eat plant based whole foods, and make movement a part of your life.

Nutrition: The Complete Guide to Looking and Feeling Great

My philosophy on nutrition is centered around a whole food plant based diet. Eating whole, plant based foods lets you achieve your fitness goals without sacrificing your health. It’s possible to achieve and maintain a healthy weight in other ways, but it’s difficult to obtain the same level of overall health. There have been many studies showing that whole food plant based nutrition helps to reverse and prevent disease. There are also plenty of examples of athletes that follow plant based diets, busting the myth that you have to eat animal products to increase strength and build muscle.

Understanding the Ingredients List

Understanding the ingredients that are actually in your food is challenging. Food companies try their best to disguise ingredients that damage your health. They frequently use different words for the same ingredient. If researchers discover an ingredient will damage your health, food manufacturers will swap it for something less known but just as unhealthy.

Since most food companies don’t care about your health, it’s important to learn to understand what’s really in your food. It will take you some time to recognize everything that shows up in your food. You can get used to the ingredients by looking up each one you don’t recognize. By doing this, you’ll familiarize yourself with them over time.

Learn to Read the Food Label

Everyone reads the food label. The problem is most people only read the front. Reading the back of the food label is the first step to a more nutritious diet. Nutrition Facts gives you tons of valuable information that you can use to shape your diet.
