HEALTHY SNACKS ON THE GO
16 November 2020 | Healthy Snacks on the Go, Recovery Treatments
Healthy snacks are an important part of your daily nutrition — they help provide you with enough fuel to perform at your best. If the body isn’t receiving an adequate amount of calories and proper nutrients the body begins to increase production of cortisol, leaving you stressed and hungry. Skipping meals can also cause your metabolism to slow down, which can cause weight gain or make it harder to lose weight. When you skip a meal or go a long time without eating, your body goes into survival mode, minds can become cloudy and worst of all your bodies will store more fat. It’s important to focus on the nutrient-density of your food choices, rather than a strict calorie goal, Listen to your body to identify how much fuel you need, if any, between meals.
When choosing a smart weight loss snack make sure it includes at least two of the following: a vegetable, a fruit, a whole grain, a healthy fat, or a lean source of protein. Some days snacks may contain more calories than others, and that’s okay. One of my secret weapons is to increase my calorie intake during the day on the days I know I will be training larger body parts like legs and back.
