Motivational Monday

When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
~Ayurvedic Proverb

It always comes back around to nutrition and diet.  Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or perform your very best, you must be on top of what you eat.  Take care of what you feed your body.  Training when your body is starving for certain nutrients will lead to plateaus, frustration, and a lack of results. 

Make the most of your training and fuel your body with the right kinds of foods.  That means protein, fat, and yes, carbs. 

To build muscle you need protein. 

To absorb certain vitamins, you need fat.

To use your muscles, you need carbs.

That's a pretty simplistic approach, but if you keep in mind not to demonize any certain nutrient, you'll be fine.  It comes down to finding a balance between the different kinds of foods you eat.  Don't fall prey to any diet that "demonizes" a certain nutrient.   

The better you fuel your body, the better it will serve you in your pursuit of fitness and health.
