Nutrition: Think but don't 0verthink!

Today I wanted to touch base on the most important part of any fitness program which is nutrition.  I think a lot of times we overthink this portion of it or we are in denial about what is really healthy for us.  The main thing to remember, just like the fitness aspect of listening to our bodies, is balance on your plate.  We often times strive for perfection which is unattainable leading to discouragement and fluctuations in our program.  I like to use the 80/20 rule which is being good a majority of the time and allowing for small indulgencies to satisfy my cravings.  You want to be sure to eat a variety of foods that are colorful and natural.  This is a perfect time of year with farmers markets all over the city providing an abundance of healthy options.  Here at FGF we don't believe in counting calories or weighing food but rather taking a more natural approach making small changes here and there that prove extremely productive over time.  Give us a call today and let us get you on the road to a happier/healthier you!
