Why is food choice important for good nutrition?
A healthy diet needs to be well rounded with the proper amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. [ The RDA’s recommendation for daily intake of such things is a good place to check your optimal intakes.
The first thing that you need to know about nutrition is this fact:
Eating small meals every 3 hours will increase your metabolism and reduce fat storage. This is a proven fact that
bodybuilders, models, athletes and lean people in general abide by – and so should you.
Eating right when you wake up is vital to breaking the fast your body enters every night. About 3-4 hours after you eat your body shuts down your metabolism and acts as if it needs to store food. This is a great function to have if a famine breaks out and you don’t see food for weeks. After all, if there’s famine you’re going to want your body to work “efficiently” by storing fat, and using it slowly.
However, you don’t want your body to store fat and burn it slowly now, right? Since there is no food shortage or famine at the moment (and there likely won’t be one any time soon) then it is pretty annoying when your body starts packing on the pounds. So, in order to communicate with your body that it is healthy, well fed, and not in need of extra fat storage you need to reprogram your metabolism. Here’s how to go about it. Start your day off with a small meal and continue to eat small meals every 3 hours or so. ............ ]
