Here’s some good nutrition advice from Best in the West partner Steelhead PDX nutrition coach Remy Maguire with a quick tasty recipe to follow🤠
Should you switch up your nutrition plan for the winter? Probably. But how? Coach’s favorite answer: It depends! Now is the perfect time to reflect on last season and consider what changes you want to make to improve your nutrition for next year. Do you need to lean out and lose body fat? While your training load is down, keep carbohydrates lower too and fill up on less calorie-dense but super-nutritious fruits and veggies.
Want to gain some muscle to be more powerful? Be sure to fuel up after your strength sessions with a protein-rich meal or snack.
Weary of sticking to a strict diet while in-season? Take a break over the holidays and enjoy your favorite treats!
