Nutrition Tips for the Beginner.
Getting a handle on your diet can be hard. Especially if things like calories and macros seem alien to you as maths is hard sometimes.
Precision Nutrition has a handy (that's a pun) way of dealing with this. For women it is suggested to have -
- 1 palm sized portion of protein.
- 1 fist of vegetables.
- 1 cupped handful of carb dense foods.
- 1 entire thumb of fat dense foods.
For men it is the same but double that.
Now once you get used to this style of meal building you can assess how you feel after a couple of weeks.
Are you gaining weight from this but want to lose? Maybe have a smaller portion of the carbs or fat.
Are you losing weight but want to maintain or gain? Add in a little to the carbohydrates and see how that goes.
Nutrition isnt easy, and while calorie counting, if done correctly is the surest way,it is also the hardest.
So to begin with, try this "handy" method.
This post is taken from my instagram in May of this year. It received plenty of good feedback so I thought I would lay it out here also.
If you find that you need a more specific route to tracking your food then I would recommend educating yourself on calories, macronutrients and how to get what's right for you. If you need help with this then message me, by all means.
I hope you enjoyed this!
