Nothing will help health and fitness more than a healthy nutritious diet. With so much information out there, it makes it hard to choose something that will actually work for every client. What if eating foods considered “healthy” is not healthy for them? What is healthy for them is just as unique as they are.
A food intolerance is a detrimental reaction, often delayed, to a food, beverage, food additive, or compound found in foods that can have a wide range of symptoms. To stay on point we’ll stick to those that may more noticeably impact your client’s health and fitness journey. Inflammation is one of the intolerance reactions that may cause the greatest impact. This inflammation can also impact the tendons, muscles, and joints causing pain or even worse injuries. It can also impact the digestion and absorption of food. Whether their goal is weight loss, weight gain, or maximum performance, this can slow down their and your efforts. It is important to reduce and/or avoid foods they are intolerant to and keep their body fueled with nutrient dense foods.
Nutritional deficiencies can also play a role in inflammation and bone, joint, and muscle health. For example, a deficiency of vitamin D can contribute to weakened bones, joints, and muscles while a deficiency of vitamin C and vitamin A can impact connective tissue and bones. Trace elements and minerals such as magnesium, manganese, and zinc also play a role in tendon and ligament repair and health. It is important to correct any nutritional deficiencies and try to keep them at optimal levels in order to keep the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles healthy and functioning properly to avoid injury and aid in recovery. Nutritional deficiencies such as B vitamins, magnesium, and antioxidants can also affect energy levels.
An accumulation of heavy metals in the body can cause muscle and tendon pain, fatigue, and poor recovery. It can also block the absorption of nutrients that the body needs. Different heavy metals have different ways to detox. Reducing this accumulation can play a huge role in performance and longevity.
