Eat Healthy Meals
When trying to stay fit, lose weight or boost your muscle mass, you need to understand that diet is everything. You can work out all you want, exercise each day and push your body to the limit, if you have an unhealthy diet you won’t really make any progress.
What’s important is to cut down on the sugar, unhealthy fats, and increase fiber and protein.
Depending on what you’re trying to achieve your diet may be based on vegetable and meat, food with limited amount of carbs, etc. By all means avoid fast food, too much bread as having a diet like that will result in reversing the effects of your exercises.
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts, meat like fish, beef, and plan your meals.
You can prepare you food for the entire day and store it in the fridge as a serving for each meal.
