Nutrient timing, sounds a little complicated right? Well really it is quite simple, it is how you break down your macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fats) throughout the day in order to get optimal results. This is a topic I get asked about quite often and there are endless suggestions on when to eat your food. And to make matters more confusing there are many suggestions on which foods to eat at these certain times. So let me break it down for you.
I think the biggest misconception is that nutrient timing of food is something that only body builders do, or should do. But ladies (and gents reading this) what nutrient timing really refers to is how you fuel your body. Have you ever tried to do a workout on an empty stomach? (I know we have probably all been there). How did you feel? Did you feel that you were bursting with energy or did you feel a little less strong and lacking your usual energy? Well, nutrient timing plays a big role in how well you perform during your workout as well as how well you recover afterwards.
Cardio… that little 6 letter word that many of a dread! Well, I know I do. I spent a year doing endless hours of cardio to try and achieve my desired results; I was indeed a cardio bunny, but I still did my weights as well. But with working full time, running a second business and trying to live a healthy life, who has time for hours upon hours in the gym? Well, let me tell you there is another way.
A lot of you are as busy as I am, and that’s why Body By Nina is perfect. If you struggle to fit everything into your day, the workouts in Body By Nina allow you to get the most ‘bang for your buck’, and the cardio will give you results without taking up too much of your time… How?
Well, three years ago I was introduced to HIIT style cardio training. So what is HIIT do you ask?
