Eliminating junk food usually goes hand in hand with your exercise programme. You may know by now that fast food restaurants along with most pastries and processed foods contain high amounts of fat, salt and sugar, and usually bad sugars at that. If you’re looking for any kind of performance aims for the week, then you can forget about most of them if you ate a lot of the bad foods, because you’re not going to have much energy to play with, and you’re going to set your body up for putting on more body fat so keep on eating the good stuff.
Another way to get NO energy in your life, would be to avoid drinking water. 10 glasses of water will give MASSES of energy so your choice.
Don’t avoid high fibre foods. Not only does high fibre in your diet help in the reduction of cholesterol, it also makes fats less likely to be absorbed in your body.
Don’t avoid your strength work. The more lean muscle you have, the more your body burns calories, even at rest. Your muscles will become stronger, your bones become more dense, and your tendons and ligaments also become stronger.
You can’t reach the standard you expect of yourself unless you adopt these strategies full stop so let’s use them.
