My last two posts have focused on the Nutrition Pyramid. Here’s a little one on the rest of the Pyramid.
1) Micro Nutrients
2) Meal Timings
These are the things you can start to look at once you’ve nailed the basics at the bottom of the pyramid. They can help you tweak your energy levels but looking at any of these in isolation when you haven’t got a hold of energy in v energy out will not bring you great results.
One of the most most common questions asked around these topics is what protein shake should I use?
Put simply, shakes are not a necessity – they may help you top up the protein that you are getting from food and can be simple and quick but if you hate the taste and prefer to get all your protein from food you aren’t missing out on anything! What brand should you use? The one that you like the taste of ideally!
