Fueling Your Fitness ebook

Nutrition and physical fitness are intricately connected. The body relies on carbohydrates, fat, protein, vitamins, and minerals to fuel all levels of physical activity, from sleeping to sprinting.

All of these nutrients are important, but the macronutrients — carbohydrates, proteins, and fats — play the biggest role in fueling our bodies for exercise. When eaten at the right time and in the right amount before, during, and after a workout, they help us feel stronger, fight fatigue, and prevent injury.

In order to start fueling our bodies for physical activity, we have to understand how and when the body uses each of the three macronutrients.

This e-book will explain the basics of fueling for exercise, outline the foods to eat and not to eat before your workout, and offer some simple meal and snack suggestions.
