Over the last 22 months and counting, I have had the privilege of working with a plethora of people each with his/her specific goals. With that being said, one of my favorite parts of my job is to unravel the mystery gift each person brings to the table. This gift being their mind and body.
Proper strength training is a fun adventure on its own and that's what we usually spend most of our time doing with our clients. Nutrition, on the other hand, holds most of the power when it comes to results; therefore, I like to spend an enormous amount of time on nutrition with most of that time coming during rest breaks, outside of the training session, or during an actual training session. I love spending time working on each client because each client is so drastically different as to how their body works. It's putting together the puzzle!!
What I've found though, is that not everyone accepts a specific nourishment plan the same. Some clients see tremendous success with a specific breakdown while another client can experience severe misfortunes on the same plan. My point, we all work a little differently so just because a research article says this works or that works, doesn't necessarily mean that will work for you, but that's okay!! Keep eating well! Continue consuming whole, natural foods that your body loves. Also, stay positive! Stressing out over something will only make things worse on all accounts.
As trainers, we are just as influencial on helping you with nutrition plans as we are with exercise. It goes hand-in-hand and we need to be prepared. Be willing to accept your trainer's recommendations no matter how absurd they may seem. Finally, if you need help with nutrition plans please feel free to message me, I'd be happy to help!
