Being fit is more than just showing up to the gym. It’s living a balanced lifestyle of exercise, healthy habits, and keeping a proper diet. Certainly there are hundreds of different diets you can find on the web that will all tell you different ways to lose weight, gain muscle, or flush out any sickness that ails you, but how do you know which ones to trust? Top Elwood personal trainers from The Fit Stop say that the secret to staying fit and eating healthy is to balance your intake of micro- and macronutrients to support your exercise regimen.
Have you ever heard the saying “You are what you eat”? Well there is more truth to it than you may think. The body uses the foods you eat to power its every day functions, so why not give it foods that are rich in the vitamins and nutrients it needs to build muscle or shed weight?
Striking the proper balance between Micronutrients from foods like frits, veg, and beans and Macronutrients you find in protein, fat and carbohydrates, all depends on the level of exercise you partake in a day. The right balance of micronutrients to build muscle, and macronutrients to give you the energy you need to put in a good workout will be different for everyone, so head down to The Fit Stop and talk to Elwood’s top personal trainers who are just waiting to help you achieve your fitness goals and lead the healthy lifestyle you’ve always wanted.
