When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, exercise is only half the battle. While you may build muscle in the gym, your overall results depend largely on what you do in the kitchen. There are so many fad diets and food options available today, it’s sometimes hard to know exactly what you should eat.
Working with a nutritionist can help you reach your goals and adopt a healthy lifestyle for the long-term. At Steel Fitness Premier, we believe in providing an all-inclusive approach to wellness. This is why we’ve partnered with a registered nutritionist to provide professional nutritional counseling to our members. Here are a few examples of what you can expect.
Before receiving a nutritional recommendation, each member undergoes individualized counseling and an evaluation of your lifestyle, dietary preferences, and current physical state. By following the recommendations, you’ll learn a new, healthy way of eating that’s designed specifically for you.
Planning and prepping your meals ahead of time eliminates the stress of deciding what to eat. You’ll save time and money and will begin noticing a physical difference almost immediately.
Eating for Improved Performance
When you’re looking to improve athletic performance, it’s critical to fuel your body with the proper nutrition. Eating and drinking the right foods can help you become stronger, faster, and better able to recover from strenuous workouts.
When you eat for optimal performance, your workouts begin feeling easier, your mind is clearer, and you have a stronger sense of focus. A nutritionist will help you determine exactly what to consume before, during, and after your workouts and sporting events so you can achieve peak performance.
Nutrition for Weight Loss
Your nutritionist will also help you reach your weight loss goals by evaluating your age, weight, and activity level and creating a meal plan that meets your calorie requirements without leaving you feeling like you’re starving. You’ll learn about the specific foods that help reduce body fat and increase the production of lean muscle tissue.
Avoid the trap of yo-yo dieting that can damage your metabolism and cause other health problems. A professional recommendation gives you the confidence that you’re making the right food choices, so you can focus on refining other important parts of your life.
Food as Medicine
Nutritional counseling has been shown to aid in the treatment of serious diseases including arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, and more. Changing your diet can also help relieve chronic pain and fatigue, minimize food allergies, and strengthen your immune system.
Your nutritionist will help you identify trigger foods you should avoid and recommend supplements to help combat any nutritional deficiencies.
