Alone nutrition will certainly benefit your overall health. However, when teamed with exercise, together they can provide you with the greatest benefit. Exercise will help absorb the nutrient value from you food, while proper food will certainly improve your workout endurance and performance.
Food is Fuel - Your exercise will generate improved energy, but only if you are fueling properly with correct food.
Bone Strength – Exercise especially free weight lifting makes bones stronger. Calcium is important in maintaining good bone density
Muscle Mass – Your skeleton is supported by your muscles. As we age our muscles can quickly decrease. Decreasing muscles mean the loss of strength.
Protein Intake is the core ingredient that drives our muscle strength. Strong skeletal muscles ward off heart disease as well as type 2 diabetes.
Both nutrition and exercise are critical in becoming and staying healthy, when you focus on both you can get optimal results.
