Eating for Performance Clinic
This is a 2 hour clinic on flexible dieting and eating for performance. This clinic will cover calculating your macronutrient specific caloric needs for performance, weight loss and maintaining or building a better strength base. It is very important where you’re calories are coming from in terms of macro nutrient needs.
Most people do not understand how to balance macro nutrients so that they can achieve their goal.
When you calculate macros it ensures that you will be getting the proper amount of calories from each macronutrient in order to fuel the body for performance, fat loss, maintenance or strength gains. Let’s face it everyone wants to be esthetic, tracking your macros is one of the best ways to have strength, lean mass and esthetics over time. Science-based nutrition experts have used this method of tracking for decades. Most recently publicity has come from the “flexible dieting” website of if it fits your macros for acronym IIFYM.
Athletes and general population weight management clients enjoy the flexible dieting concept because it does allow you to eat a balance of foods as long as you’re hitting your daily macro goes depending on your specific needs. You do not have to eat haphazardly or without caring concern for healthy foods you do however have to have variety in order to sustain a nutrition plan. Without variety are not likely to stay on board for long.
If you cannot see yourself doing a certain plan for more than six months without struggling it is probably not the right plan for you. We will briefly discuss supplements — the good the bad and ugly ” waste of money.” We will also discuss pre-workout and post workout nutrition what do we need what is the best for recovery and performance as well as weight management.
Why should you track your macros?
- Consistency and Sustainability
- You do not have to label foods as good, bad or dirty foods anymore or talk about “cheat meals ” because you will have something that you enjoy every day just as long as you are hitting your macro nutrient goals/needs.
- You will not feel deprived
- How do you improve performance if you do not know what you’re doing wrong?
Just like training if you do not track what you’re doing how do you know what you need to improve upon?
We will also briefly discuss sleep and “recovery nutrition.” We will address how they work hand-in-hand and why should you try to rest in the 90 minute sleep cycle.
