When it comes to losing weight, or simply being fit, nutrition plays a much larger role than you think. According to SHARC’s Nutrition Manager, Damon Amato, “exercise is part of the weight-loss equation. But your diet is a far more important factor. It is what you eat – not how hard you try to work it off – that matters.” So, when it comes to being healthy, you can hit the gym all you want, but in the end it’s what you eat and your lifestyle that matter the most.
Don’t skip: Nutrition is all about eating the right food and the right AMOUNT of food for your body. People tend to think that skipping meals and eating little calories will result in weight loss, but in reality that isn’t always true. Yes, you may experience some weight loss, but not for long. Skipping meals and not giving your body the nourishment it needs can actually cause future weight gain and lead to binge eating. One of the most common meals that are skipped is breakfast, which is what kick starts your day. Try eating breakfast everyday, as well as smaller meals throughout the day.
