Eat More (healthy) Carbs
Carbohydrates kind of get a bad rap and they really shouldn’t! Carbs are the main nutrient our body need to produce energy. When you have more energy, you are able to lift heavier things and run farther distances!
Just like any other macronutrient, there are certain foods that are better for you body than others. Start looking for quality over quantity. What I mean is, don’t worry about how many carbs you are consuming but rather what kind of carbs you are consuming.
Healthy carbs include whole foods like fresh fruit, grains, squash, potatoes and vegetables! Make sure your fruits are whole fruits and not juices from concentrate. Always stick to whole grains that are the least processed like quinoa, rice, millet and oats.

When you are eating whole foods that are rich in nutrition, you will always be cleansing your body. Avoid foods that are processed as much as possible, and stay away from animal products altogether.
Processed foods and animal products like meat, dairy and eggs are really hard for our bodies to break down. Stick to whole plant based foods and your body will thank you. You’ll have more energy, softer skin, better digestion AND you’ll see those fitness gains happening a lot faster!
