A healthy diet is one that consists of the right amount of protein, carbohydrates and fat depending on each individual’s weight, body fat, activity level and goals. This healthy diet consists of a variety of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, healthy fats and whole grains all eaten in the correct order and most beneficial time of day. A healthy diet also provides adequate energy and does not contain excess fat, sugar, salt or alcohol. But don't be fooled by preservatives. Products that claim they are "low fat, low sugar, fat free or sugar free" most likely contain huge amounts of preservatives and additives. These can be even worse for you than the actual sugar and fat. It's important to understand what you need to fuel your body and feel your best.
Here at Chrome Personal Training Centre, we specialize in tailoring a specific food plan for each individual we work with. There is no cookie-cutter approach to eating right. Each person needs his or her own healthy diet. For example, an overweight 40 year old woman who is trying to lose fat won’t be eating the same as a 25 year old man looking to build muscle. Don’t be fooled by generic fad diets. They are created for the “average” person. And really, who is that?
So if you are looking to improve your health and wellness, a healthy diet is an excellent first step. Come in and see how we can help you improve your life!
