Whether you want to analyze the diet your on, get an answer about creatine, or find a new recipe for chicken you can get an amazing amount of high quality food, nutrition and health information on the web. I have been researching several web site that I feel have quality information and I feel some of you will find this information helpful to!
Although I do not like to use the word diet or tell anyone they should be or go on a diet!!!
Living a long healthy life means eating and living a healthy life style. The old saying is true," you are what you eat."
If you feel you need to be on a diet try to change the wording your using. Tell yourself your going to make some different choices in your daily food intake..the word choice is a big one.
You are the one who usually goes to the grocery store to shop and you are the one who puts the food in your mouth. Stop and think about it before you do, it is about making the right choice.
The word diet can be so sabotaging, this means YOU CAN'T HAVE IT, and when people think they can't have it or eat it they seem to grave it even more leading them to eat more!!!
So..try to take the word diet out of your life and start to make some better choices for yourself and your family. I know in this new year you will feel better, your exercise will feel better and everything else in your life will fall into place!!!
We are all so unique and different. What works for me during training, racing and recovery might not work for you. I can lead you and help you find the magic that will work for you but it will take some trials and we will get you to a place where every thing works! Why don't some of you tell us what you eat and drink before, during and after training and a race? This would be such helpful information for us all.:)
