All men need three macro-nutrients in their diet to fuel their body and optimize their everyday performance whether it is for a professional workday or a gym workout. So men should focus on getting a balance of these three macronutrients:
- Carbohydrates: Our body and more importantly our brain, uses carbohydrates as its most preferred energy source. If we are lacking carbohydrates in our diet, we tend to feel fatigued. Try a bowl of Super Oats by Love Grown Foods, packed full with fiber and energy to start your day off right!
- Protein: Our muscles need protein after a hard workout to rebuild and grow stronger. Protein is also vital for regulating our blood sugar. Make sure to eat a protein source at every meal. Protein sources: eggs, peanut butter, nuts, seeds, beans, chicken, turkey, salmon, beef, and pork.
- Fat: Fat keeps you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day. Consuming low-fat diets can leave you feeling hungry and deprived. Food containing healthy fat sources: Try extra virgin olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and salmon.
