Eat BEFORE your workouts!

It is important to have some nutrients in your body BEFORE you workout! If you wake up and workout fasted, your body is going to treat that like a very high stressor.

This can be detrimental to your hormones!

If your goal is to burn more fat, it will actually improve your results to eat a small amount of nutrients before a workout, by protecting your hormones and metabolism.

Another thing: it is more effective to focus on nutrition first, and then the actual workout. The type of workout, length of workout or even the amount of calories your burn won’t matter, if your nutrition isn’t supporting your movement. ⁣

So let’s talk nutrients! ⁣

I recommend this general breakdown of macros for regular workouts (if you are training for something more intense like a marathon, you will need more support!)⁣

Protein (10-20g)⁣
Carbs (15-20g)⁣
Fats (5g) ⁣

The main goal of this is to support your hormones and protect your body from stress and an extreme cortisol response.

How do you know if your cortisol is already off? The best way is through DUTCH hormone testing.

This is an easy, at home test that will give you answers about your hormone imbalances.

Whatever shows up in your test, I will work with you to create a plan that resolves these imbalances and maximizes your metabolism for fat burning and muscle building.

It will be individualized so that you can target exactly where the hormonal issues start.
