For me as a personal trainer it is important to focus on nutrition as well as exercise. Good nutrition can make all the difference to your mood. Stress-eating is common for many people and it can result in a negative cycle that is extremely hard to break out of. If you follow my advice you will definitely reap the benefits in the long run.
Having a good diet isn’t just important in terms of the way we feel but it’s also essential for our bodies to function as they should. A poor diet can put stress on your organs including your heart, pancreas, liver and kidneys. This in turn leads to illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity and osteoporosis.
If your diet can affect your other organs in this way it also has an effect on your brain so a good diet will also keep your brain healthy which means better mental health!
This isn’t about a ‘fad’ diet that is impossible to stick to, it’s about changing your lifestyle. It’s a long term commitment and not a quick fix but a healthy, balanced diet.
