Best Diet for a Fit Body

IMG_1849

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed your family, friends, and FOOD!

I personally ate so many sweets on Christmas day that I gave myself quite a headache and stomachache, bleh! But it served as a great reminder as to what those types of foods do to the body and surely made it easy to return to my normal, healthy ways ūüėČ

On the note of eating too many sweets, today I wanted to touch on what I currently think is the best diet for building a fit body. This has changed quite a bit over the past year and I know those of you who have been following me for some time are interested to know how these updates are going, so let’s get into it!

The #1 Fit Body Diet Rule

The #1 most important rule for building a sexy fit body is to eat whole foods (most of the time).

There really isn’t a better or bigger change you can make in your diet than to switch over from processed, chemicalized crap to foods just as they come in mother nature. Our bodies run better and cleaner on these foods than foods filled with preservatives, colorings, flavorings, etc. You’ll have more energy, more mental clarity, and less emotional ups and downs if you consistently choose to feed your body with whole foods.

Best Diet for a Fit Body: Where To Go From There

After you have made the switch to eating foods just as they come from nature, you may want to take it even further to personalize your selections based on your body. There are many next steps you can try that may or may not affect the way you feel and look:

Ideas to consider: 

1. Cutting out foods that often times cause allergies in sensitive individuals Рthese are foods like dairy, nuts, gluten containing grains (or sometimes all grains), and soy.

2. Tracking your calories and altering them based on your age, gender, and activity level. A great place to start is to google “calorie calculator” and put in your information, then use the number it gives you as a base point. See how you feel after a week or two at that level and make changes accordingly.

3. Play around with your macro nutrient levels. Your macro nutrients (or macros) are your percentages of fat, protein, and carbohydrates in your food for a whole day. Some people do better with more higher levels of protein, others do better on higher levels of carbohydrates, and even some do great with high levels of fat. It is up to you to determine what is best for YOUR body.

The percentages I see the most from individuals who compete is a 40-40-20 split (40% carbs, 40% protein, 20% fat) – this diet has a lot of animal protein throughout the day so may not be the best (or healthiest!) for you, but it does seem to work pretty well for most people to lose fat and gain muscle.

I personally do best on a higher carbohydrate/lower fat diet. I used to follow an 80-10-10 split with 80% of my calories coming from carbohydrates, but now I have lowered my carbs to around 60% on low days, up to 75% on other days. I try to keep fat fairly low still, usually between 10-20% and I don’t stress too much about protein as my body holds muscle easily.

I think a pretty good starting point would be to shoot for 55% carbs, 30% protein, and 15% fat – see how your body responds and switch it up as you gain information from your own body.

I hope this helps you figure out where to start when it comes to the nutrition side of building a fit body that is also healthy and energetic!

Lots of love,
