What should I eat?

Featured Image

It’s no secret that we don’t like fads or gimmicks when it comes to nutrition or fitness. We want you to do what will work for you in the long-term. We advise you to stop looking at what your friend did, what “they” say you should do, or the latest fad diet for a simple answer to a complex question.
“What should I eat?”  When a generic answer is given to you without the following questions, then that answer may not work for you.

  1. What are your nutrition, health, fitness, etc. goals?
  2. What is your typical daily routine? Weekend routine?
  3. What are your health, weight, and medical history?
  4. What medications or supplements do you take and for what reason?
  5. Do you have any food allergies or intolerances?
  6. How often do you eat out? Go to the grocery store? Prepare meals?

And those are just the tip of the iceberg of answering, “what you should eat.” There is not 1 diet, program or eating style that works for everyone. Especially if it doesn’t fit what you need.
So now what? Could a “diet” work for you? Ask yourself, “Can I live this way for the long-term to keep my results?” If the answer is no, then please do not start the diet. If the answer is yes, make sure that you do your research and if food groups are eliminated or foods are excluded you get those nutrients from another food source or supplement. This will avoid any nutrient deficiency.
There are some good pieces from diets… 1. Increased fruits and veggies, 2. a focus on heart healthy fats, 3. less processed foods, etc). Adopt the changes that worked for you but leave the deprivation and restriction behind. They aren’t worth it.
Make nutrition and fitness work for your life, your schedule, your preferences, and your goals.

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
