Quality Fuel

Calories. We hear about them all the time. Though, do most of us even know much about what they really are? This article explains some basic concepts about calories; including the fact that a calorie is "a unit of heat energy." That heat energy is "what really fuels our body just the same way that gasoline is what fuels your car's energy."

Like a car, you are going to be at your peak performance when you are putting the best fuel possible into yourself. Also, you function better with a full tank rather than running on empty all the time. Quantity AND quality matters!! Therefore, consider the food calories that are going into your body. Keep things balanced. Don't overeat, but don't under-eat either. Spread out your calories throughout the day into three decent meals and a couple snacks. Make sure the foods you choose have calories that are worthwhile. Your body can do a lot more with food calories and nutrients from fruits and veggies than it can from a pop tart!

Grace and peace to you, my friends! I know it's hard to eat well ALL the time, but do the best you can to fuel yourself as best as possible! At the very least, drink Shakeology each day to ensure that you are getting more of what you should and craving less of what you shouldn't! Your body is a hard-working machine; treat it accordingly! Remember, you are what you eat! Work hard for your body and it will work hard for you! Be infused! God bless you!
