Have a look at the above vegetables and notice what they are high in.
When I sit down for the first time with a client and examine their diet the same things always happen.
Me : “tell me what you ate yesterday”
Client : They say “ooh yesterday wasn’t a good day….”
Me : I say “tell me anyway”
They proceed to tell me and after a quick analysis there is usually a pattern. And that’s fine. I’m not worried about that. Personal Training is an education and time takes care of that. Its when I answer the usual questions :
“How do I get more fibre? More bread?”
“How do I get more calcium? More dairy?”
“How do I get more anti oxidants for my immune system? More vitamin C tablets?”
“How do I get more vitamins and minerals? More powerade?”
“What’s a good detox? Detox in a box?”
“fruit and vegetables” I say
This when the client starts looking at me like I have two heads. And let me assure you, I may have been born in Queensland, but I do not, and have never had, two heads! But its too simple. People like complicated. The simple stuff is there for a reason.
Calcium is probably the big one you were not expecting eh?. How calcium and magnesium relate to each other is probably a post for another day but the simplest way to get your calcium scores up is through eating or supplementing with magnesium. Send me a message for more details on getting your calcium scores up without eating dairy.
This is roughly what 5-6 cups of fruit and vegetables look like. Do you eat all this?
Split up over 3-5 meals it’s not much per meal. Here’s another visual aid :
Fruit and veggies, man. Fruit and veggies is often the answer.
“How do anti oxidants work?”
“How do I speed up my fat loss”
“How do I speed up my strength gains”
“How do I stop my gums from bleeding when i brush my teeth”
“How do I bring out my hair and skins natural shine”
“How do I get more energy”
“How do I stop waking up at 3am”
“How do I poop more often”
Fruit and veggies, man. Organic fruit and veggies…
See you in the gym!
