In this article, we want to start talking about how your fuel needs to reflect your training and the goals you are working towards. In subsequent articles, we will give you a step by step rationale behind the overarching nutrition guidelines you will have seen on your app home screen and the principles that underpin them.
Check out this article that we put together on basic terminology to help you better understand the recommendations we are suggesting.
Training to improve long term health and longevity is less about body composition goals and pushing performance markers and more about protecting what we have, improving movement quality and optimising energy levels.
The numbers that we have provided you within the app should be used more as a guide marker that you can reference back to at times when you feel that you may need a little more direction.
To give you an example here… If you feel like your energy levels are not what they should be, are consistently feeling hungry or losing/gaining weight (when you don’t want this) then you may need to pay more attention to these high-level numbers.
We are going to give you some more guidance on this in subsequent articles.
Remember, if you want more guidance, or something doesn’t make sense, chat to your coach, that’s what they are there for.
