What You Eat Impacts Your Wellness
There’s so much more to fitness than regular workouts; it’s a combination of exercise, rest, and eating well. Changing your lifestyle to accommodate all three elements can be challenging, but as your fitness resource, 10GYM is more than a great place to work out. We’re here to help you learn, adjust, and succeed.
There is a strong connection between nutrition and health, and what you eat has a significant impact on how you feel — no matter how hard you exercise. Poor food choices, for example, can lead to all sorts of health concerns (like diabetes, high cholesterol, and high body fat content). On the other hand, healthier meals and snacks can positively affect your overall mind and body wellness.
Our bodies need a variety of nutrients to function properly, and these can be found in the food we consume. Bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes contain carbs; meat, fish, eggs, and beans include protein; and butter, oils, and nuts contain fats.
Vitamins and minerals are also essential for good health, and can be found in fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and whole grains.
A balanced diet is essential, and small lifestyle changes can impact your health in many positive ways – from improved weight loss and better sleep, to greater energy and focus.
Are you including all the different food groups in your diet? Do you think there might be some changes you could make that would benefit your health?
