Amanda’s Nutrition Philosophy via bodybuilding.com
I started out in the fitness industry with just a pure passion and love of training.
Putting in so much hard work in the gym, it only made sense to get the most out of my training, so I would eat for fuel. That sums up my eating, really.
My nutrition philosophies are:
• Use food as fuel.
• Eat what God put on this earth. I eat whole foods, limit my sugar, and stay away from high-sodium processed foods.
• Eat balanced by using a variety of foods for their vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, etc. Be balanced by giving in to a cheat meal once in a while to keep from feeling totally deprived. Enjoy life and special occasions.
• Eat lots of protein, complex carbs, and lots and lots of veggies.
• Instead of having a full-out junk food binge, I listen to my body. If I really need chocolate, then I have it.
