The power of the right diet
Let’s answer the first question right away; of course, the right kind of food can help you gain muscle, lose fat, recover faster, you name it. Basically, you can do wonders by eating the right kind of food. Not only it affects the shape of your body, but it also influences each of the body systems. Your diet can make a difference between a healthy body and a sick one; it can boost your immune system, but it can also damage it when you eat bad stuff.

Basic diet guidelines
To get the best out of your diet (health and body shape wise; those two are very closely linked) you should stick to the following guidelines:
- Eat diverse food.
- Try to divide your daily food consumption into at least 5 meals (every snack counts as a meal).
- Don’t skip breakfast.
- Eat at least half plate of fruits and veggies every day. The best are fresh ones, the second alternative are frozen ones. Avoid canned ones, since they usually contain a lot of processed sugar.
The more you eat green, the more you get lean.Dr. Joel Fuhrman
- Drink at least 0.5+ gallons (2+ liters) of water per day.
- Avoid processed sugars and refined grains. Every time you feel like eating something sweet go for a fruit.
- Limit bad fats and avoid ugly fats.
- Limit alcohol consumption to one standard drink per day.
- Avoid soft drinks and processed fruit juices.
- Keep carbs intake below 65 % of your total daily calories.
- Make sure that 20 – 30 % of your daily calories intake are fats (mostly good fats).
- Proteins should make up for at least 25 – 30 % of your daily calories intake.
Remember: I’ve never heard of anyone who’d regret switching to healthy food. Furthermore, healthy food can be super tasty you just have to find the combinations and ingredients you like. Even pizza can be healthy if made the right way!
For the fans of unhealthy food: Scientists claim that sticking to a healthy diet 80 % of the time is good enough (NOT PERFECT!) to keep our body healthy. 😉
