Proper Nutrition is Critical
The nutrients you put in your body are critical to so many aspects of your life. They have a direct affect on mood, sleep quality, immunity, body fat, skin complexion, muscle mass, fatigue levels, and the list goes on.
Nutrition and Recovery
When we stress our bodies with physical (and mental) exercise, we end up damaging tissues. These tissues then need to be repaired in order recover and be ready for the next stress load. Recovery is a major focus of Achieve’s ability to get maximum performance out of our athletes. Nutrition, the food we eat and liquids we drink, is a key component to optimal recovery and feeling great.
Achieve Optimal Recovery
Achieve believes there are three key factors of achieving optimal recovery: rest, hydration and nutrition. A simple guideline to follow based on these three components is to get at least eight hours of sleep a night, drink approximately the ounces of water of your body weight in kilograms (if you weigh 70kg, then drink approximately 70 ounces of water, and more when you exercise) and eat a balanced diet of high quality macro (carbohydrate, protein and fat) nutrients.
Achieve Optimal Performance
Although eating whole and unprocessed foods is what Achieve believes is foundation of proper diet (here’s some simple recipes), the quantity and quality of nutrients, minerals and vitamins are not always met this way. It’s a well known fact that current farming practices compromise the quality of what we eat and drink. Animals are exposed to growth hormones, soil is turned over very quickly to keep up with demand, but at the compromise of its growing quality, and fruits and vegetables are exposed to herbicides and pesticides. In order to make up for these deficiencies, Achieve recommends supplementing an unprocessed, whole food diet with the safe, pure and effective nutritional products of Isagenix. How do they accomplish that? Watch the video below.
Since 2002, Isagenix has lead with science-backed products, and continue to put their products to the test. Their products and systems provide solutions for weight wellness, energy, performance and youthful aging.
The majority of Achieve athletes share a similar lifestyle; they strive to balance work, family, friends and sporting goals. Those who have incorporated and followed through with the high quality nutritional systems of Isagenix have experienced inspiring transformations. Thousands of others, from those with major weight loss goals to elite (and professional) athletes striving to be the best in the world, have experience similar benefits. For those focused on getting back to their ‘fighting weight’, hanging with your friends on a group ride, nabbing that Strava KOM, or feeling alive and full of life, there are countless success stories.
There are many blog posts under the category ‘nutrition’ that provide more details on this. You can contact your Achieve coach with questions or visit his our Isagenix associate website at http://achieveptc.isagenix.com.
