Good Diet: Keep It Simple!

Be Mindful

In today’s world people go out of their way to make life complicated.  You don’t need to spend hours in the gym, or count every calorie that crosses your lips.  You do, however, need to be mindful.  Mindful of the muscles that you are exercising and when to contract those muscles. Anything that you eat or drink should enhance your body’s performance.

A full body workout can be completed in as little as 30 minutes.  The stronger you get the more exercises you can get done in a 30 minute window.  Proper form is a must if you want to get the most out of your workouts.

Always use a full range of motion.  Limited range of motion will eventually limit ones ability to move.  Optimal muscle contraction requires you to load the muscle.  When you don’t have complete range of motion, your will move with limited force.  Think about an old person who can’t pick up the feet.  These people begin to shuffle because they lack range of motion and strength to pick up their feet.

A good diet is eating food that support your health and well being

Eating should end once you are 80% full.  

Overeating will leave you overweight and unhealthy.  Being overweight is more than just a look. Being overweight causes every system in your body to work harder.  A good diet consist of fruits, vegetables, and a lean protein at every feeding.  Before you eat anything, always ask yourself, what is this doing for me?  Is it aiding in repair of the body?  Is it giving you energy to get through a workout or the energy to get through your day?

Your body will always guide you if you listen.  Keep it simple!
