Diet & Nutrition

Diet & Nutrition

It’s simple enough, as Michael Pollen the author of one of our recommended books “Food Rules” says

“Eat food, mainly plants, not too much”

But as with many things, and for many people, it’s easier said than done. We are without doubt at Balance Performance that what you eat is not only of major importance to your overall health but also hugely influential on your efficiency to recover from any illness or injury. So many times our injured clients report that they have either put weight on when injured or have lowered the quality of their eating – often because of some change in their motivation. We would encourage a more proactive approach and show you that its an opportunity and could be a major incentive for you to further IMPROVE what you eat. The majority of us are, after all, interested in resolving problems as fast as possible.

  • Do you need to lose bodyweight to improve your health? It will, as a healthy bodyweight decreases your risk of diabetes
  • Do you want to reduce your body fat for sports performance, or making a weight division?
  • Do you feel that improving your diet is needed to reduce the symptoms of a particular illness or condition you are suffering – IBS, adrenal fatigue, poor energy
  • Do you want to reduce bodyweight or body fat to simply feel better, more mobile and agile?
  • Do you want to get back in to clothes that didn’t used to be so tight or have a goal for a specific day?…weddings spring to mind.
