FOOD = FUEL
YOUR FOOD MATTERS
Welcome to WEEK 2 of the 2023 Summer Ready Challenge! Now that you know what it takes to be consistent, we're going to transition into another important aspect of any training program: YOUR FOOD. This week's theme is all about understanding that your food is the fuel that your body needs to train hard, recover efficiently, and function normally on a daily basis. No matter how hard you train during this program, your nutrition will be a key factor in your fat loss results by the end of week 4. Understanding what to put in your body is just as important as knowing how to move it, so we've provided a few tips below to make sure you level up your nutrition this week and beyond.
THIS WEEK'S KEYS TO SUCCESS
MAINTAIN CONSISTENCY: Keep the consistency going with your workouts but also through your nutrition and recovery as well. All three are important in how well you maximize this week.
PROTEIN INTAKE: Protein is important for rebuilding and recovering your muscles after being broken down with each training session. Not consuming enough protein can lead to severe soreness, aching, fatigue, and lack of energy. Check out this video on protein to understand how much you should be consuming.
PREPARATION WILL SAVE YOU: The best way that WE stay consistent with OUR nutrition is by prepping our food when we have time for the days when we don't. We highly recommend prepping your meals beforehand or in bulk to ensure that you have the food you need at all times. Doing this will reduce the urge to order out, uncontrolled snacking, or any bad eating decisions that come with not having food planned.
MORE FRUITS & VEGGIES: We recommend implementing more fruits and veggies with each meal to ensure your body has the vitamins and nutrients to perform properly every day.
DRINK MORE WATER: Your body is made up of about 60% water, and it's vital for your energy levels and performance from day to day. We recommend aiming to drink your body weight (lbs) in ounces for optimal hydration. [EXAMPLE: Toya is about 120lbs, so she aims to drink 120 ounces of water daily.]
RECOVERY: Daily stretching, mobility exercises, clean nutrition and optimal sleep will be the foundation of your recovery. The more efficient your recovery is, the more you can get out of each training session.
