Today’s Fitness Tips with Fitness One Personal Trainer, Allen Branch, –
-Eat for Fuel not Fun: Food can be fun, there is no doubt. We center celebrations, quality time with friends and family and plenty of other occasions around eating. However, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that food is primarily supposed to be fuel. It’s important to start each day with the right foods or “fuel”. It’s also important not to overeat at dinner and right before bed, when we won’t have a chance to burn what we’ve eaten. Allen suggests fruits and veggies as excellent food choices to keep your tank full throughout the day.
