Eating for performance and not for pleasure.[gap]
SupaTrophy nutrition is based around eating wholesome nutritious foods in quantities that will fuel your performance and aid recovery but not increase body fat percentage.
Weight loss and weight gain are directly linked to caloric intake, ie. the number of calories you eat. Want to pack on muscle? Eat more. Want to lean down? Eat less.
However it is not simply the quantity of food, it is also the quality, you can’t out-train a bad diet. Have a look at our top tips on sources of proteins, carbs and fats which adhere to the SupaTrophy philosophy.
Protein builds and repairs muscle, helps produce hormones, boosts the immune system and replaces red blood cells.
– lean red meat
– lean poultry meat
– protein shakes
Carbohydrates are the preferred energy source for all activities in the body and what your body will use first to burn during training.
Fat is the preferred fuel for lower intensity level activities such as sleeping and eating, but it is also used for endurance activities such as marathons or long-distance cycling.
– tree nuts
– olive, avocado, flaxseed, walnut and coconut oils
– some vegetables, eg. avocados
