What do great Athletes do that keep them healthy and strong?
If the title of the blog didn't give it away, Elite Athletes are focusing a large portion of their time on making sure they are properly fueled.
Our body is an organic machine that is capable of doing some really amazing things. Just like any other machine on this planet, they need fuel and maintenance to continue functioning optimally. Our bodies are unique in that we can actually grow and become better. We have the ability to grow our muscles and strengthen our bones. We have the ability to increase our brains ability to process information and we have the ability to handle more tasks because of it. Our bodies can do some incredible things and with that amazing ability to grow and become better, faster, stronger, bigger, smarter and so on...we must provide it with optimal fuel in order to do such things.
A car is easy, right?! It takes gas and oil and if you can manage to keep both maintained, you seldom have any issues. Our body is different and due to it's ability to outgrow it's current state of being, it needs good sustainable fuel and regularly scheduled maintenance!
Science tells us that year after year our foods are becoming more and more less nutrient dense. This means the food we eat has less fuel than it once had. This also means we must consume more calories worth of food in order to get the same nutritional (fuel) value we once had. This leads to overeating, nutritional deficiencies and creates an environment that is not hospitable for maintenance, repair and growth of organs, glands, muscles and the brain. This leads to fatigue and injury!
How do we ensure we are getting the right amount of nutritional (fuel) that we need in a day?
Answer is, we must supplement our diets. This is even more crucial for an Elite Athlete because of their workout demands, but even the ordinary person who has a demanding job and/or life that causes them to use lots of fuel in order to exist in their perspective environments, they too must have proper nutrition to overcome those demands and continue to repair and grow.
