When you’re an athlete you need to fuel your body like a champion. You can’t put crappy gas, and never change the oil of a sports car and it expects it to perform well. Humans are the same! We need the right fuel in order to be successful. A lot of the food on the list below are common sense, but you can never have too many reminders right?
Fast food burgers >>>Homemade Burgers-
All you have to do is take ground beef season it and roll it in the shape of a burger. Throw it in the oven and you have the same thing. The only difference with homemade burgers is you know what is really in it.
Fried Foods>>>Baked Foods–
- It makes no sense why people fry anything when it is so bad for you. Like fried foods do taste good but not that much better than a food you will bake. I guess my arteries are talking to me right now though.
Candy cravings are your body’s call for some sweets. That is just what fruit is filled with and they are all natural sugars.
Chocolate>>> granola bars-
Granola bars are not the healthiest things on the planet but they are way better for you than a chocolate bar.
Cake and Pastries>>> homemade muffins–
Make some muffins and use whole grain flour, put applesauce in them, put chocolate chips in, and put some protein powder in. You will forget all about cake.
Bacon>>> Breakfast steaks-
Breakfast steaks are thin steaks that cook really fast on a frying pan. I make them right beside fried eggs but just don’t use oil use cooking spray and you have a much better meal.
Soda pop>>> Gatorade-
Not saying Gatorade is the greatest drink in the world but if you happen to be dehydrated from a hard day’s work it will do more for you than a soda. If you are a real go hard have some water but I know sometimes we like something sweet to wash food down with.
Hot Dogs/ Sausages>>> Lunch Meat-
These meats are made in the most disgusting ways, but they just taste so good. Just go to the grocery store and buy sandwich meat and call it a day. A healthy day at that.
