What does it mean to “fuel your body” and why is it so important? For many of us, we don’t take into consideration what food actually does to us on the inside, and we typically don’t think of all the negatives attached to an unhealthy diet.
Links Between Disease, Illness & Ailments and Nutrition
Acne, eczema, bloating, inflammation, exhaustion, headaches, unhealthy blood sugar levels, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of focus, heart disease, obesity, etc. There are SO many symptoms of poor nutrition. And not only this, but when you step foot into the gym, everything you ate is literally what is fueling your body to perform either at its best or subpar. Our bodies were designed to run on healthy, natural food. The problem starts when we start feeding our stomachs processed, sugar-filled foods, and then repeat it day after day. These foods spark an immediate response in your body, not a sustained, healthy, supportive response.
Whether you have a major health issue that you’d like to tackle, if you want shed a few pounds, or maybe you just want to feel better, nutrition will play a big roll. The 7th Annual BCF CrossFit New Year's Challenge will help get those healthy nutrition habits started, so grab a partner and get signed up . It’s all about creating better daily habits and creating awareness of what we’re feeding ourselves.
