One of the best metaphors a coach of mine gave me when speaking about nutrition for our training was “We train like Ferrari’s out on the track, not dump trucks. You wouldn’t put regular gas in a Ferrari, would you? No, always high test!” So, in short, why would you think about putting anything less than the best into your nutrition?
In this day in age, it costs more to eat healthy than it does to eat like garbage. Which baffles me! I don’t need to tell you what’s bad to eat and what’s not, I think that is pretty obvious. It’s within our power of choice and hustle-bustle lifestyles that we neglect ourselves. Believe me, I’m no stranger to grabbing on the go, but there comes a time when changes needed to be made in my regimen to perform at optimal levels. This is where clean on-the-go option like whey protein isolate come in. Just dump some Isopure whey protein isolate in a water bottle and you’ve got a clean, easy and healthy snack perfect for when you’re on the run.
You’re saying, “But you don’t need watch your weight with all your training!” Very wrong you are! I’ve had to lose about 12lbs before races start to really be able to fly like the wind. Why is that? Let’s go back to the Ferrari metaphor. Sprinters biggest plus as athletes and being able to run so fast is the power to weight ratio. Simply put, we build these massive powerful engines inside a light lean body frame. So yes, I need to watch my eating habits probably twice as must as the casual gym goer.
Below I provided you with a little look at one of my eating days during my week. I stock up on a lot of vegetables, potatoes and rotate my protein sources (fish, chicken, turkey, pork, whey protein isolate) and red meat every Monday cooked towards the rare side for the source of b12 vitamins from it.
- eat consistently through out your days,
- select nutrient dense foods like whey protein isolate and plenty of veggies,
- and most important- you get back from your body by what you put in it!
