Nutritional Plans & Guidance For All Personal Training Clients
Whether your goals are to lose weight and tone or are for sport specific training, it is vital to get your nutrition correct in order to maximise your potential.
I provide perfectly balanced, easy to follow and quick to prepare eating plans to complement your exercise.
All my personal training clients receive free nutritional planning and advice.
Below is some basic nutritional guidance and if you book a taster session I will elaborate with your own personalised eating plan.
The best carbohydrates to eat for weight loss are ones that keep your blood sugar levels stable. If your blood sugar is spiking up and down all day by eating the wrong type of carbohydrate then your body will never lose weight. This is because as soon as your blood sugar is spiked the body actually releases hormones making the body hold onto stored fat. On the contrary, if you eat foods that keep your blood sugar levels stable the body actually releases hormones that makes your body release stored fat to be burned off.
I will provide you with an eating plan that only consists of “good” carbohydrates”, therefore maximising the opportunity to lose weight and tone up and reach a level of fitness that will help change your body forever.
Protein is essential if you want your muscles to look toned. The protein you eat is the major element in muscle growth and toning and therefore it is vital to eat enough protein to ensure your muscles become toned and strong from your personal training.
The food plans I provide always include the right amount of protein for your goals and exercise level. I ensure it only includes proteins you like eating and I can also provide eating plans for vegetarians that provide the correct amount of protein for great results.
Whatever your goals, correct protein consumption is crucial for success and this is why I am passionate ensuring my clients get just the right amount for their body.
It is important to watch portion sizes as all fats contain 9 calories per gram (compared to 4 calories per gram for protein or carbohydrates). Fats can be broken down into “bad fats” (saturated and trans) and “good fats”(polyunsaturated and monounsaturated).
The vast majority of you fat intake should be from the “good fats” as they lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. “Bad fats” do the opposite and raise your cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease.
My food plans have the right level of “good fats” and this means you don’t have to worry about consuming too many calories. This makes healthy eating easier to get into the habit of doing day in day out, which is the best way for great results.
One of the best parts of having a nutritional plan for you is that you don’t have to worry about having to count calories day after day. I work out everything for you so you know that when you follow the plan you are getting the right calories for your weight and goals.
I will provide a plan that is easy to follow and most importantly not leave you hungry. Cutting calories too drastically leads to muscle loss and ultimately a reduction in metabolism. This will always lead to weight gain in the future, the classic yo yo dieter. I teach you how to eat correctly so you keep the weight off, forever.
My nutritional plans have all the correct portion sizes and balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat for each meal worked out for you.
