Make Nutrition Easy

By: Sierra Wright

From the time I started working at Double Edge I’ve been asked what my diet consists of and fortunately when I’m asked I can answer honestly and confidently. Nutrition is another passion of mine alongside my fitness journey. I have no “secret” I just stay consistent and true to myself with everything I put into my body. This doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a donut (my weakness) or hot wings here or there but this just means I eat everything in moderation. I have trained my body and my mind to instead of eating until I’m full I eat until I am satisfied. Choosing what we eat is always difficult especially if we work long hours, find time to go to the gym and still have a family to tend to when we get home, but it’s not impossible. It’s making a little extra time or putting in that bit of extra effort to plan out what we should eat and make sure we are feeding our mind and bodies whole, nutritional foods. I am a simple girl, I eat mostly meat, grains, vegetables and fruit. I try to stay away from carbs, not completely but I limit my intake. Also water, making sure to intake the needed amount for your body based on your height and weight is very important. Not only is it needed to keep you hydrated but also for the process to digest the foods we consume. Being a community health science major I have been required to take quite a few nutrition classes so being educated on all the different aspects of nutrition has helped me and continued to remind me how important nutrition is in our everyday lives. What we eat affects more than we may be aware of. Don’t be afraid to read, educate and even experiment with nutrition. I cannot express how much happier I have become with staying consistent and making this change in my life. I have continued to progress in a lot of other areas of my life and I am convinced it is because of my diet. If you have a minute and are curious I suggest visiting choosemyplate.gov if you haven’t already. This site is very educational/informational as well as fun to explore. If you ever have any questions or want to know more about how or where to start to make this change in your life or want recipes or really anything about your diet or nutrition, please come ask me or any of the coaches.
