SoCal Fitness nutritional advice with Spagetti Squash

Keys to success

It is hard to have a successful program without eating well and this seems to be the most difficult part for most people.  If you learn nothing else from SoCal Fitness, know that nutrition is key.  If your struggling with your nutrition start small.  Drink lots of water and make sure that you have a healthy breakfast each and every morning.  Think of it as putting the gas in your body so that you can run all day.  You’ll find nutritional guidance from SoCal Fitness that will keep you on a successful training plan below:

  1. Measure your food on a food scale so you see how much food your consuming.  Here are some shortcut tips:3oz = approximately the size of a deck of cards.  And when it comes to fish and chicken, your fish should measure the size of your hand and your chicken should measure the size of your palm.
  2. Log your meals down in a food journal. This is great for accountability and will keep you honest with yourself, and show me so I know your going in the right direction.  Try My Fitness Pal.
  3. Lastly, enjoy the challenge and realize it takes time but you will get there if you stay motivated and committed.

Complex Carbohydrates

Start consuming more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and foods that are high in fiber! The carbohydrates will keep you satisfied longer and you won’t find yourself hungry again in an hour. Approximately 50-60% of your calories should come from carbohydrates

Fats

Remember fat is important too, just not too much of it!! Try cooking with olive oil or eating nuts or fish as these all have monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which can help lower cholesterol levels. Limit saturated fat to 25-30% of total daily calories consumed.


Nutrition advice from personal trainers

Protein

Protein is very important. These are the building blocks to repairing damaged muscle tissue after a tough intense workout. Try combining a protein food source such as a boneless skinless chicken breast with a complex carbohydrate source, brown rice after a workout. Doing this, will keep you feeling satisfied longer because your body takes longer to digest the protein and you won’t eat too many calories in one sitting.
