Understanding U

Nutrients

Understand the journey you are about to embark on.

  1.  Nutrients.
    • U need Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats to have an ideally functioning body that builds muscle and burns fat.
  2.  Metabolism.
    • U need several meals spaced evenly throughout your waking hours to keep your metabolism running full speed and not store energy in the form of fat.
  3.  Food Timing.
    • Carbohydrates can be stored as fat pretty easily, so they are best just before and after your workouts.
    • Where U need them most, for energy to blast through your workout and for quick muscle repair afterwards.
  4.  Macros.
    • This refers to the percentage of calories consumed for Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats.
    • U start with a fairly balanced plan to establish your baseline, and from there tweak it ever so slightly as time goes on to find what truly works best for you.
  5.  Calories.
    • Excess calories will be stored as fat.
      • Excess calories are the calories consumed in excess of what your body needs to function with all U are demanding of it.
      • There are calories needed to keep your body operating even if U are completely sedentary, and calories needed to give U the energy to perform the tasks U are demanding of it.
