NUTRITION HEALTH AND FITNESS
You truly are what you eat. Nutrition, health and fitness go hand in hand. You can workout like a champ in the gym but if your diet is bad all your hard training will be for nothing. Proper nutrition is the key to success. The gym isn’t the only place you sculpt your body, your kitchen is a major factor in this equation. With the right foods and supplementation you can build strength, stamina and muscle tissue that will help burn fat. Everything you eat affects your body. Ask yourself are you eating your way to disaster or triumph?
The way to look and feel your best is to strive to eat 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods. A healthy pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 – 7.45 ). A pH below 7.0 is acidic. When your body is too acidic it will decrease the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it’s ability to repair damaged cells, make tumor cells thrive, and makes the body more susceptible to fatigue and illness. On the other hand, if you make better choices and give your body more alkaline foods, you will strengthen your immune system, increase your metabolism and boost your energy.
