Time to fuel your athletic development! How do you know how much energy you burn each day? How do you know if you are matching this with your food intake? While there are several variables to be super specific, there is some great technology out there that can really be helpful in taking all the guess work out.
It takes much energy to train, compete and rebuild. It is important to know how well you are refueling your systems to rebuild damaged tissues as well as maintain energy stores for the following day. When you register through me on dotFit, we can accurately calculate your calorie demands. By logging your food daily and accounting for timing and amount of food intake, we can clearly see what may need to be modified to keep your calories, protien, carbs and fats working for you and not against you.
In addition to seeing your calories, protien, carb and fat ratios, you will also have access to menues, shakes, protien bars and boosters that are all certified to be NSF safe. You will be able to check up on things like sodium, cholesterol and sugar intake. Managing your nutrition should not be difficult, but you should definately be aware. Always fuel your body to meet your demands. This progam enables you to effortlessly do just that.
In order to fuel your athletic development you will need to:
- Set proper nutritional goals. This means that while everyone needs to know their starting point, in order to get to the end point each program will be tweeked just a little bit differently.
- Always log your nutrition. This provides accountability but also lets us see how close we are to our target. Make sure to note the time as well as the amount. You never know what tweeks will help the most and sometimes its just the timing.
- Choose your foods carefully. The more demands you place on your body the more you will want to make sure you are feuling it with high quality nutrients. Foods that are nutrient dense are always a good choice like nuts, avacados, fresh fruits and veggies.
- Download the app right to your phone so you have quick easy access where ever you are.
