Tips to Fuel Your Day the Healthy Way

June 14, 2016 2:43 am

(Family Features)—When it comes to bettering your health, everyday lifestyle changes can be powerful. Take a cue from Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin and cohorts Zack Test and Carlin Isles, who rely on basic nutrition and fitness principles to fuel their days the healthy way:

Eat Breakfast – Start your day right with a nutritious meal, such as a hard-boiled egg and steel-cut oatmeal topped with fruit and almonds. Prepare your breakfast the night before to eliminate excuses come morning.

Drink Water – Drinking more water daily is one of the best ways to stay fit. Aim for at least two cups of water two hours before physical activity, one or two cups 15 minutes before exercise, and a half-cup or one cup every 15 minutes during.

Snack – Don’t forgo nutrition when hunger pangs hit. Be prepared to fuel up while on-the-go (or after a workout) with portable, nutrient-rich snacks, such as fruits, vegetables, dark chocolate or herbal tea.

Most importantly, take the time to recover after workouts. Allowing your body time to heal will not only stave off injury, but also build energy for your next bout of physical activity.
