The Key Component that Ties it Altogether? Smart Nutrition

You thought this was finally going to be the year to shed some of that stubborn body fat. You have made strength gains in the gym. What does it take, though, to finally get that ripped body? Beyond good genetics, it’s having an idea of what you are putting into your body on a daily basis in terms of overall calories. In addition, does your diet have the correct macro breakdown? Are you getting plenty of protein? Watching the added sugar? Drinking plenty of water while avoiding those “empty” calories? In other words, eating healthy…or what Jefit calls smart nutrition.

Record What You’re Eating

There is an old adage that says you don’t own something until you write it down. If I asked you how many calories are you eating, would you know? Would you know your macro breakdown for carbohydrate, fat and protein? This does not have to be done forever. Just get a handle on it and have an idea. Typically, it’s a good idea to record everything you eat for 5-7 days including the weekend. One of the best ways to do this is record everything in a food diary or an app. In today’s technologically advanced world, “there is an app for that.”
