It really all goes hand in hand- eating, sleeping, working out, recovery. Mess one up and you’ve got problems in the others.
Especially if your idea of eating is limiting calories or eating pseudo-foods that have been made out of 25 synthetic chemicals.
The very definition of a calorie is a unit of heat or energy. A lot of people cut them out like crazy and wonder why they have no energy for their day. It takes more than 500-1000 calories to fuel most bodies- whether you “feel” hungry or not due to what ever flavor of the month hormone or appetite suppressant pill you’re on.
Your best bet is real food. Simple ingredients. Protein in the form of beef, fish, chicken, or pork. Carbs in the form of fruits and veggies (more veggies and less fruit if you’re trying to lose weight). And fat, yes fat. Good fats include avocado, coconut (oil, chips, milk), olive oil, nuts and seeds (don’t go nuts with these though).
Fuel matters. Come learn more about how to fuel your machine for health, wellness and performance:
