At Nutrifitness, we realize that optimal nutrition is not about eating the "perfect" diet. It is about eating a diet that takes into account not only your nutritional needs but also your eating habits. When we recommend a nutrition plan, we take into consideration:
- Your particular physical condition,
- Your health and fitness goals and
- How the biochemistry and physiology of nutrition interplays with the psychology of your daily food choices.
Our recommendations show you how to balance diet choices and achieve your goals, while still having the freedom to enjoy food. If the diet is not one that you are committed to and one that is reasonable for you to sustain, it will not work.
Nutrition, Health and Fitness
At Nutrifitness, we want you to be aware of the critical importance of consuming adequate nutrients from food, whether you are looking to manage a health condition, lose weight, or eat correctly for fitness and exercise training.
Our nutritional experts are university-trained in biochemistry and physiology, so they know precisely how to design a diet balanced to provide an optimum combination of all nutrients for your particular body and goals. Once we have provided you with an optimal nutrient recommendation, we will show you how to time meals and snacks, watch out for high levels of saturated fat, still eat the things you like but take a comprehensive approach to your caloric intake and exercise regime. We have developed a way of doing this without encumbering you with a rigid plan that detracts from your enjoyment of life and food -- a plan you can really get results from.
Reducing the Risk of Disease
More critically, healthy eating habits play a significant role in the treatment and prevention of some of the most devastating diseases, such as:
- cardiovascular disease
- type 2 diabetes
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol
- inflammatory bowel disease
- irritable bowel syndrome
Important considerations in preventing or treating these conditions are:
- an adequate quantity and variety of fruits and vegetables
- the right mix of healthy fats
- sufficient amounts of whole grains, low fat dairy and lean protein
- controlled amounts of saturated fats and sodium in some cases
While there are some commonalities in treating the conditions above, each requires an individualized nutritional strategy.
Nutrition is a huge and often overlooked component of exercise. Whether you're attempting to firm up, build muscle or reduce body fat, proper eating is integral to making your hard work really pay off.
To build muscle, it is true that adequate daily protein is required, however Nutrifitness will also show you the vital importance of adequate calories and proper timing of carbohydrates.
To reduce body fat, it is essential that metabolism be elevated and insulin levels kept stable. We encourage our clients to eat frequently and to eat fiber-rich foods to slow down digestion and feel fuller longer.
When looking to achieve fat loss and/or muscle gain, the precise balance of enough proteins, carbohydrates and fats -- enough but not too much -- requires a precise approach. The team at Nutrifitness has the educational background and hands on experience to provide this precision and to ensure the long-term success that may have eluded you in the past.
