Eat and Train Like An Athlete And You Will See Your Body Change

By far, I see one common improvement that most athletes need to make---EAT LIKE AN ATHLETE! If you put garbage in your body, don't expect your body to perform at its peak!

And, you know my take on supplements: try to get the nutrition you need from food. Save your money! Don't depend on supplements to significantly build your body up!

More than anyone, athletes physically depend on their bodies to succeed. And, its been proven that you won't be mentally sharp if your nutrition is lacking.

Also, pre- and post-workout meals are just as critical to your muscle growth (hypertrophy) as the training.

These two processes work together to make your training program successful. The rigors of training breaks down your body and you need proper nutrition and rest to rebuild your body bigger and better.

Ever wonder why your body fat won't decrease? Its mainly due to poor nutrition! If you are fat, don't expect to compete at a very high level! Here's an example of what and what not to eat:

Cut out these type foods: sodas, sugary fruit juice drinks, candy, cookies, donuts, fried meats and fried foods, fast foods, ketchup and mayonnaise

Add these type foods: oatmeal, nuts, low-fat dairy products, low-fat yogurt, fruits, veggies, unsweetened tea, water, lean meats (baked, broiled or grilled), olive oil, cinnamon, mustard. You get the idea! EAT WITH A PURPOSE---THE PURPOSE OF BEING ABLE TO PERFORM AT A HIGH LEVEL!
