Healthy Living: Easy ways to eat like an athlete
(Family Features) It is common to pair an exercise routine with a plan to cut calories and improve eating habits. While this good old fashioned approach to getting in shape is a smart and healthy one, it’s important that your new diet provides adequate nutrition to fuel your exercise.
•Create an eating plan that incorporates carbohydrates and protein, as well as fat in moderation.
•Timing when you eat will affect how much energy you have to exercise.
•Before beginning a workout, start with a warm-up.
•While working out, and throughout the day, stay hydrated. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water a day,
•Within one hour of finishing your workout, refuel your muscles with a dairy-based protein beverage.
Just as you need to give your car gas to make it go, your body needs fuel to perform its best, especially when you’re starting a new fitness program. Proper nutrition will give you the energy you need to create new healthy, active habits to last all year long.
