Winter Fitness Group Challenge - Week 3: Nutrition

It's come down already to one of our major topics: nutrition. We'll be spending the majority this week spending some time at home investigating, researching, and finally developing plans on how we can adjust and improve our nutrition.

Let's get right to it, this isn't a change in your diet. By almost it's connotation, a diet is a short term change in your eating behaviors. I'll speak for myself and for many of you, there is no short-term fix and all those fads have been thrown out because of either ineffectiveness or adverse effects. A change to our nutrition is a long term change that can really impact our journey through weight loss, gaining muscle, or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

Each and every day, I will be posting up a new post with trusted sources: organizations or websites that are structurally sound with their nutritional advice or posting evidence based research (with academic resources). Now I'll have a small summary of the research as well as my take on it along with the URL.

This Weeks Goal: 
Adapt Three New Changes To Your Nutrition
Share your changes throughout the week through 
either the sources I provide or through your own research.

What Do All These Numbers Mean???

Great website for those who want to get the basics of nutrition down. Has a lot of expanded topics such as serving sizes and proportion decision making.

  1. Can you make some suggestions for nutritional changes for those of us that more or less eat healthy already? Like something green at every meal, or if we have a sweet treat keep it under 150 calories? Or try a new fruit or vegetable? I'm just thinking out loud because I'm having a hard time coming up with something specific other than, stick to your allotted calories :(

  2. Absolutely can do Marissa. I can definitely up your nutrition game with the help of some great sources I have in hand. Check in throughout the week for some of that content.
