I’m excited to announce that I am now a guest blogger for Azumio! Azumio is an app company dedicated to improve health and wellness by tracking sleep and steps, monitoring your glucose levels and heart rate, and providing exercise libraries and routines.
Many of those fitness magazines at the checkout line have it all wrong. If you want to drop pounds or pack on the muscle, you need to change what you’re eating more than your routine at the gym.
Changing your body composition is 80% your food choices (and quantities) and only 20% exercise. Eating well has a much bigger effect on your waistline or bicep bulk than you think. Eating well also helps you feel full, focused, and give your body the fuel it needs to work and recover.
Though more restaurants, food companies, and services are popping up with “healthy” food, cooking for yourself is one of the best ways to ensure your success in healthy eating. Cooking healthy meals helps you know exactly what’s in your food and how it’s being cooked. It’s also a great way to save some money, and who doesn’t like having a little extra money in the bank these days?
