Here we are into the new year. This is the time of year when some folks continue to pledge there allegiance to training like they have day in/day all year round. For others this a time to embark on a new journey in life, a fitness journey. Whether this is routine or new to you the fact of the matter is no how many hours a day you spend training in a gym, on a road, or up and down a mountain; the battle continues when an athlete gets home and it is time to eat. Life is all about choices right? That moment you enter your kitchen before or after a killer workout you have tough choices. Are you going to reach for that frozen dinner, how about that box of macaroni and cheese, or better yet how about those bread crumbs to make some chicken parmesan? Look to be eating lean meats, vegetables, foods with a source of protein. Some of our favorites here at WW: chicken, fish, ground turkey meat, quinoa, broccoli, kale, avocado, eggs, turkey bacon. Depending on your situation and if you are limiting yourself to x amount of calories per meal, you may want to invest in a scale to weigh your meals. Let us be clear it is one thing to indulge in a cheat meal a few times a week but, to consistently be eating fatty, greasy, high sodium, high calorie foods denotes the meaning of why you are training to begin with. Oh if you are giving thought about becoming gluten free, vegan, paleo, or doing the whole 30 we strongly reccomend speaking with a nutritionist prior to doing so. Each person is unique in there own way and what works for me may not work for you.
