After the last couple of years, many people have shifted their focus from major life goals, to instead zeroing in on the little things that it would take to help them achieve their milestones. If there’s anything that we’ve learned since 2020, it’s that our health is at the core of accomplishing those big-picture to-do’s.
One of the places that you may have chosen as your launching pad is an attainable fitness goal. You’ve worked hard, and what started with Sydney Cummings on YouTube in 2020 has turned into a regular gym schedule where you’re doing all of the recommended exercises and sticking with a regular cardio routine.
Now that you have fitness down to an art, you want to continue seeing progress but don’t know where to start. Well, let us give you the nudge you need. It’s time to start looking at what you eat.
Fitness plateaus are real
One of the most crushing parts of any fitness program is when your body decides that it’s trimmed and toned enough, and now progress is halted. There are ways to combat this, like changing up your workout routine, but you can only change so much for so long before it stops being effective.
In order to continue seeing progress, you may need to reassess your diet as it relates to your fitness goals. Keep in mind that not all diets are about losing weight, sometimes it comes down to putting on muscle or toning up for marathon season.
Food and fitness go hand in hand, and while we are talking about dieting, we’re not talking about the traditional diets that are all over the internet. Our focus is actually medically-backed and based on science. It’s time to get tested for food sensitivities that may be affecting your performance and fitness outcomes.
Food sensitivities and fitness goals
Here’s a simple fact: You never know how bad you feel until you start feeling better.
If that went right over your head, let us break it down for you. People have all types of food sensitivities, from beans to chocolate, from dairy to egg yolks, and the list goes on. What if you have always had a food sensitivity to dairy and cabbages but the adverse reaction wasn’t bad enough to raise a red flag? Your threshold of ‘feeling good’ is a constant state of fatigue and the occasional stomach cramping.
In your mind, that fatigue and minor stomach pain are perfectly normal. This is you feeling your best. That means that you fatigue faster in the gym or on that morning run, your stomach always cramps at mile 4. Normal.
If you were to take a food sensitivity test, then you would know that your fatigue and stomach cramps are not normal. You could start that journey to increasing your mileage past mile 4 on your runs, and you would feel good enough to add another rep to your deadlift set.
