People often struggle with consistency when it comes to nutrition.
They may be great at following a diet for a week or two,
but then something comes up and they fall off the wagon.
If this sounds familiar,
don't worry - you're not alone.
Throughout my years of training as an elite level athlete, I’ve worked with many coaches and nutritionists around food philosophy.
And I’ve created this 5-step guide to creating your own food philosophy and mastering your nutrition.
1. 80% whole foods, 20% soul foods.
If you find that eating is more a chore than enjoyment, I can tell you that you're doing it wrong.
Finding healthy ways to include flavours that you love won't stop you from having your ideal body composition.
It will simply make the journey much more enjoyable.
2. Eat the rainbow!
It's super important to consume a variety of different food groups.
Fruit and veggies should make up the bulk of your daily food. I’m talking 5-7 varieties of veggies and 2-3 varieties of fruit every day.
3. Planning is key.
I'm not just talking about meal prep -
planning your meal times is also important,
especially when you’re training.
Carbs are best consumed close to training times - before and after sessions - to support performance and recovery.
4. Consider your sleep
Do you ever find it difficult to sleep after a big dinner?
Well, you're not alone.
Your body uses a lot of energy to digest meals,
so eating late at night can actually stop you from sleeping deeply.
5. Drink your water!!!
Drinking plenty of water is key to boosting literally every part of your health.
I have my huge 1.5L bottle with me all day, every day.
A positive relationship with nutrition is so important and it all starts with a healthy mindset.
And if you want further help with your nutrition…
SMP has developed a process of transformation and self-mastery.
The same process that won me the world championship,
The process that has helped countless of women like yourself,
And the process that can help you do the same.
But, only if you're the hardest worker in the room.
So, if you think you have what it takes…
