When you eat is as important as what you eat!

Food timing is very important to your success!  Food timing is when to eat, and how much to eat.  AND is as important and what to eat.  Confused?  Let us help:

The best rule to follow is, “what am I going to do for the next 3-4 hours?”  This is called Food timing.

If you are going to be relaxing ,your body doesn’t require as much food or fuel as if you were going to be training hard in the next 3 hours.

When timing your meals, it is best to keep your protein at a constant level throughout your meals, but adjust your complex carbs up or down, depending on your activity.  Pre-workout you would opt for something like yams or oatmeal (slower carbs to carry you through your training), post-workout you would opt for something like chocolate milk, Phase III, or dark fruit (faster to restore glycogen levels).  It’s true and all based on science, proven time and time again!  More on your customized nutrition here…

Please do not eat randomly!  If this is what you do, Club Inhale / Exhale can help you more with your food timing and what foods work best for your goals and body type.  It all matters!  It’s all Science!

  • You need to follow this rule because what you just ate is the primary fuel source for your upcoming activity. Research has also proven that athletes can burn more than 1/4 more calories from nervous energy than in hard training sessions.  Ever get nervous?  You’re burning more calories!  Remember, athletes would in fact have a higher percentage than the average person, but this is just another wonderful scientific fact for you.
  • This rule also applies to different cycles in your training.  When you are in a high energy, strength, or size building cycle, you need more total calories because of your total energy expenditure.  Hence, the “building” stage.
  • This rule applies to fat loss and weight loss as well.  Caloric deficits, fat loss and weight loss.  Caloric surplus, builds muscle and energy.
  • This rule does NOT apply for those in a psychological caloric deficit dealing with binge/purge eating or chronic dieters.
  • This rule does NOT apply for those in a psychological caloric surplus dealing with binge/overeating or couch potato syndrome or chronic dieters (yo-yo).

As you can see, there is a fine balance between eating for deficits, surplus, energy, muscle building and more!  Want the answers for you?  We are here..More Info
