Food is a big component of my life.

To be honest starting to get your nutrition plan aligned can be one of the most difficult steps to complete when moving forward on a health and fitness program.

Everything counts.

Total carbohydrate intake.

Total protein intake.

Total fat intake.

And don’t forget fiber ūüėä.

Your body takes all of these nutrients and absorbs as much of it as it can to help you live. How effective it is or shall I say you are at that mainly comes down to your activity level, age, sex and overall status of health.
