There is no “one size fits all” with nutrition. There is, however, a very effective way to find the diet that fits you. We have some tips and tricks for making changes to your diet to find what best suits your lifestyle. All the previous posts should be applied for several weeks before making any more significant changes.
The first major tip is to eliminate most foods from your diet and gradually start adding foods back in. You may find that some foods affect your body more negatively. For example, maybe after introducing cheese back into your diet you may find that you have less energy overall. If this is the case, you may consider excluding or reducing cheese as much as possible.
The second tip is to take the primary exercise you do into consideration. If you are a longer-more endurance athlete, you might consider increasing your fat intake and decreasing your carbohydrate intake. If you are a high-power athlete, like a sprinter or powerlifter, you might consider slightly increasing your carbohydrate intake and decreasing your fat intake. If you are just a feel-it-out as you go type athlete, but you are noticing a decrease in energy, you might consider adding more fat to your diet and decreasing carbohydrates. You may also find that these suggestions are not beneficial to you – which is okay too! Again, there is no “one size fits all” with nutrition.
We encourage you to start by resetting your diet with predominately proteins / fruits / vegetables for a few weeks, and let your body tell you what you need.
