Today I will teach you how to match your food and your exercise to make the most out of your workouts.
All of our bodies need a certain amount of food to help with daily bodily function and repair. For this reason, you can change your body weight by changing how much you eat even if you don't exercise. However, obviously exercise contributes to how many calories you burn and you can afford to (and should!) eat more to help your body recover from your workouts.
One system that works well for a lot of people who have trouble motivating themselves to exercise regularly is:
to be sure they are matching what they allow
themselves to eat with how much exercise they do.
If you are a person who counts calories or servings of food, it's easy. All you do is have a set amount you have for a 'non workout' day. Then, each type of workout you do is "worth extra" food. Generally this food will be in the form of carbohydrate, which is generally the best way to replenish after a hard workout. Your 'normal' food for the day should already contain proteins and healthy fats and, of course, fruits and vegetables. So in this way, you will be 'rewarded' with more food on the days you exercise longer or more vigorously.
