Nutrition can be defined as the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth at both a macro-nutrient (protein, fats and carbs) and micro-nutrient (vitamins and minerals) level. The energy we take in (calories through food & drink) compared to the energy we use (calories used in the body for our daily energy requirements) will result in either a positive or negative energy balance. This in turn will determine whether weight is lost, gained or maintained.
It is important to understand however, that good nutrition achieves much more than simply just weight loss or weight gain. As well as an improved body composition good quality nutrition will also vastly improve your overall health and levels of performance.
Here are just a few examples of why employing a good nutritional strategy will benefit you:
- Reduced body fat percentage
- Increased lean body mass
- Improved energy and stamina levels
- Increased insulin sensitivity
- Reduced diabetes risk
- Increase in good cholesterol
- Improved recovery and mood
