Mindful Nutrition: Tips for getting started
"Mindful nutrition tips"

No matter where you are in your fitness journey - our tips remain the same. We like to keep things simple, so we have put together our top 3 tips for getting started with your mindful nutrition journey: 

 

Never be hungry 

 

Eating small meals every couple of hours keeps our metabolism going steady. When we go without food for long periods of time, we send our body into panic mode and this, in turn, makes our body store food as fat. So, we want to keep giving our body a steady supply of nutrients to help burn fat and build muscle throughout the day. 

 

Never be thirsty 

 

Water supplements every part of our body, including our muscles. Dehydration prevents us from exercising at our peak, making building muscle and burning fat a little less effective. We recommend drinking 2 litres a day. 

 

Protein is power 

 

Protein is key for muscle building which in turn is just as important for burning fat. Did you know that every kilogram of muscle burns 50 calories each day! Eating 1 gram of protein for every kilogram of body mass will give you a good guideline to work with when prepping your daily protein intake. Our favourite sources of protein include fish, beef, chicken, eggs, daily legumes and nuts.
