We've said it a million times, and we'll say it again - to see great results from your training, you need to nail your nutrition.
A clean diet will help you reach your goals faster. This means eating food that is as minimally processed and as close to nature as possible. A clean diet includes lean meats, plenty of fresh vegetables and some fruit, plenty of water, and fat. It doesn't include sugar, packaged food, preservatives and alcohol. Tea and coffee are okay in moderation.
There is a perception that cleaning up your diet means eating plain and boring meals, but there are tonnes of clean eating recipes that will make you drool and keep you coming back for more. You're more likely to stay on track with your nutrition if you actually enjoy the meals you're eating and understand how they benefit your body.
It's a great guide, and includes gems like this stuffed capsicum and grilled chicken dish ... Mmm. We asked her to share a bit about her book below and we'd definitely encourage you to have a read.
More than a recipe guide
Chantal Cuthers explains her book Eating Whole:
Eating Whole isn't simply a recipe guide, but a whole food approach to teaching you how to make really healthy and nutrient-dense food, into tasty and easy-to-use recipes. You're welcome to go full-steam into the 7 day menu and work alongside the [Re:]Create team to kick start your goals or boost your training programme. You can also use a few recipes at a time to learn more about how good food can benefit your body and get you to your goals.
Eating Whole can be used as a hand guide on 'nutrition 101' for anyone interested in either eating for health or for taste. It is designed to suit gluten free, dairy free, and plant based lifestyles without compromising on taste, and offers a menu that the whole family can enjoy. Simply adjust the recipe servings to suit.
