Performance Nutrition – Perform Better, Every Day of the Week!

By Ben T Coomber

Nutrition is often the unsung hero of increasing an individual’s performance. In fact, I would go as far as to say that without good nutrition you cannot even begin to successfully increase your levels of performance, whether it’s in daily life or in sport. There are many factors, from a nutritional perspective, that need to be in place even before you can start to increase your performance.

Try increasing your recovery ability with impaired gut function. You will not even begin to absorb all the high quality food you might be consuming and the expensive supplements that you are knocking back all because your nutrition is not in check. So when it comes to performance nutrition it might actually be a case of stripping the individual back to basics. So does the person in question have good nutrient absorption, a strong immune system, an adequate sleep pattern and enough de-stress time? If not then what are the chances of them increasing their levels of performance through increases in training volume and frequency. This is usually when players get ill, crash and burn, all because their nutrition and lifestyle are not in check.

So performance nutrition might in fact be a cloak and dagger word, but there are obviously factors of performance nutrition that do lend themselves to increases in someone’s physical performance. So let’s say we are working with an individual that has all the above in check, then we can look to increase their physical and mental performance with the aid of nutrition, including food and supplements. Of course there are many ways to coax the body into the environment that you want it to perform in. Specific food and specific supplements at certain times can signal the body to perform in a certain way. A perfect example of this would be during the post workout recovery period, a time where nutrients are partitioned in a certain way, when provided in the right proportions, into the muscle to preferentially induce a greater anabolic and recovery effect.

So really the above is a prime example of performance nutrition. Such a nutritional strategy thus increases someone’s performance through increasing the body’s ability to recovery quicker. After all recover quicker and we can train sooner, which then, over time, leads to greater overall increases in performance as more training practice has been performed. But what must not happen in performance nutrition strategies is skip one phase before the other. There is no point in giving an individual X, Y and Z supplement if their gut health is currently impaired. Much of the consumed supplements might be going to waste through poor absorption, so it would make sense to repair the gut, then build on top of that, as in theory you will then observe two increases in performance, one from re-building the gut and another from the targeted supplement use.

So of course there is a place for fancy supplements and specific foods to increase the performance of an individual at the right times, but there are essentials that have to be in place first. In essence you could liken performance nutrition to the art of building a house. Rock solid foundations have to be in place first before you build your fancy architectural sculpture on top. Now that is the art of performance nutrition.

Trim 360 Diet Review

Are you tired of counting calories? If so, this diet plan may be for you. The basis of the Trim 360 diet plan is every meal is 360 calories or less. You won’t need to calorie count because the hard work is done for you with the plan. Let’s take a look.

How the Trim 360 Plan Works

The program provides foods to you by home delivery. You can choose from 50 different meals and snacks. Each entrée offers multiple servings so you can eat it again if you like it a lot.

There are three different packages to choose from: 7 meals a day, 5 meals a day, or 3 meals a day. Your calories and portions are based on which package you choose.  You can have the food shipped to you as grouped by the plan, or you can customize your plan choosing foods that you like in particular.

Once you receive your food, you are ready to enjoy full meals. You’ll just want to add a healthy beverage. Nutrition guidelines provided can help you choose beverages and light snacks so you aren’t compromising your calories and weight loss.

Results

The program can help you lose anywhere from 2 to 5 pounds a week. With calorie controlled meals that are delivered to your door, you don’t even have to think about your diet. Success with this diet is attributed to the ease of the plan as well as the knowledge you are given about food and proper nutrition.

The program offers a 30 day free trial so you can get familiar with the program and decide if it is something you might like to do. You are given a sample pack of shakes and snacks and access to videos and tools to help you create meals. If you like it, you can sign up for complete meal delivery.

Here’s the Skinny

The meal delivery is not cheap. They break it down by how much it will cost each day but you are purchasing your meals by the week or month so the actual bill has to be calculated. There are videos, as we mentioned above, to guide you through preparing meals and learning about nutrition. You’ll also have access to the online community to talk to experts and others on the plan.

This plan is great for the food and nutrition part of weight loss. However, it doesn’t stress exercise. Increasing activity will enhance your weight loss and give you the shapely body you want when the weight is gone. Combining this plan with some type of regular physical fitness activity will provide you with optimum results.

Trim 360 helps take the struggle with food planning out of dieting with meal delivery, nutritional education, and online support. Throw in some exercises and this diet plan could be just what you need to finally lose the weight. Click Here to visit the Trim 360 Website
