Timing Your Nutrition for Maximum Nutritional Benefit

You are not alone in the never ending quest to maximize your potential to be healthy and fit.  And of course you want to receive the full payoff for your hard work invested in your training, whether it’s sport specific, in the gym, or focusing on your overall well being.  The roadblock most people inevitably run into is their diet.  With so many variables such as lifestyle and genetics, everyone has different requirements.  Life would be much easier if there was one perfect, generic diet that told you what to eat and when to eat it, and this would be the standard eating plan that everyone could follow.  Unfortunately this is not possible, and furthermore you cannot rely solely on supplements for all your nutritional needs.  However, the one aspect of a proper nutritional diet does remain the same for everybody is the benefits received when you implement the right food choices and timing of your meals.

 

Some main benefits for proper meal timing and nutrition include:

  • It ensures that your muscles strengthen and repair between each bout of physical exertion.  Adequate nutrition after exercise speeds your recovery time, leaving your body ready for the next workout. Faster recovery from your training allows your next training session to be much more efficient.
  • Sufficient nutrients maintain your immune system allowing you to fight off infection more efficiently. 
  • It optimizes fuel use so that you remain energized through your current workout.

 

Hopefully looking at these benefits is an incentive to start asking your trainer more questions about what foods are right for your body type and how to successfully manipulate the timing of your nutritional intake.
