Welcome to a new lifestyle!
Before embarking into your journey towards healthy eating we must first learn the many aspects that are tied with the whole process. If you are reading this you have already taken a step in the right direction towards achieving that desired physique, feeling healthier, and increasing muscle and strength. Taking a step towards a healthier lifestyle can be hard. The commitment that is required in order to achieve results across the board is the main obstacle between you and your fitness goals.
Usually, the root of inefficient workouts trickles down to the issue of misunderstanding inaccurate information with regards to dieting and the regulation of daily macro nutritional intake. We believe that in order to achieve goals in the gym one must focus 20% on working out and 80% on making sure that your body gets the right amount, and the right kind, of fuel during the remaining hours of the day outside of the gym.
Macro nutrition is the balance between caloric values and quantity of food, and can be molded to suit the needs of people trying to gain muscle, get stronger, lean out, or loose weight. By regulating macros people are able to achieve the results they are looking for at a faster rate. The beauty of macro nutrition is that you don’t have to opt out from your favorite meals; you just have to regulate the quantity that you consume every day.
Everyone has different body types, and everyone pursues different goals in the gym. Macro nutrition is important in order to be able to obtain the optimal results. Whether you are looking to lean out, gain strength, or simply start eating healthy, a customized macro nutrition diet exists.
Research at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health focused on managing macro nutrients and what are the best ways of ensuring that people pick a right diet that revolves around providing the best results out of the gym. In the article there is mention of studies published by the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), a peer reviewed journal published 48 times a year by the American Medical Association. These studies focused on comparing diets and their effects on women trying to achieve the same goals; a 12-month trial followed 300 overweight women that were randomly assigned different diets. After a year, the study calculated that a very low carb diet provided the optimal results when trying to loose weight.
