80% of how you look and feel comes down to what you’re putting in your body. Nutrition is key:
+ Hydrate: Drink half your body weight in ounces
My go-to beverages are lemon water throughout the day, and ZICO coconut water during my workouts. When you’re hydrated, you won’t be aimlessly snacking throughout the day and you’ll feel energized all day long.
+ Eat 5-6 small meals throughout the day
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are essential, and so are snacks! I love a Kind Bar and fruit treat mid-morning, and hummus and veggies for that mid-day crunch attack.
+ Eat your greens!
Vegetables are so important to have throughout the day. They fill you up and give your body all the nutrients it needs.
+ Lean proteins
