Is Your Diet Sabotaging Your Workouts?

Is Your Diet Sabotaging Your Workouts?

Do you have a regular routine at the gym? Are you working out every day and still not seeing results? You are not alone. Millions of people are regular gym go-ers yet never see results. The answer can be as simple as your diet. What you are putting into your body can determine if all those hours at the gym show or not. Here are five tips to help you achieve your goals.

Take Your Time:
Sit down and take your time for each meal. It should take you 15-20 minutes to eat a meal. It is important to stop eating when you start to feel full. Also remember to chew your food so that your body will absorb all of the nutrients in your meal properly. Don’t feel bad about taking a to go bag (most American restaurants serve double of what a normal portion size is if not more).

Eat A Lean Protein With Every Meal:
There should be at least one palm-sized portion for women and two palm-sized for men of protein dense food in your meal. If you are vegetarian make sure there are lentils or another source of protein with each meal (this includes breakfast).

Eat Your Veggies:
Each meal should have one serving of vegetables (the darker the leaf and the brighter the veggie better). A serving size for veggies is approximately the size of a fist. The veggies can be raw, steamed or baked (however you prefer just not fried).

Some Fats Are Good:
Eating good fats does not make you fat. Your body needs good fats to support weight loss. Some examples of good fats include fish, eggs, some meats, avocados, nuts, and seeds. Or you can take a fish oil supplement daily which can come in pill or liquid form.

Not All Carbs Are Bad:
If your goal is fat loss and you haven’t just completed a workout, avoid starchy carbs and opt for a double serving of veggies instead. If your meal is post-workout it is ok to eat some starchy carbs such as: whole grain bread, whole grain rice, oats, or potatoes/yams because your body will use it as fuel and not store it.

        Arslan Giray,As usual, you are attributing to me statements that I have never made and intentions that I have never had and are misrtpreseneing my arguments. This is one of the main reasons why I don't want to discuss with you again. But don't worry, your slander tactics don't work on me. As for the issue of haplogroup N in Turks, on the relevant thread I already made clear that I do not have a clear opinion about its sources.

Your idea is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I’m very blissful that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing referring to this.

    Thanks for your publication. I also feel that laptop computers are getting to be more and more popular lately, and now in many cases are the only kind of computer employed in a household. The reason being at the same time that they are becoming more and more inexpensive, their working power keeps growing to the point where they are as effective as desktop computers out of just a few years ago.
