Nutrition

Diets are something of the past, it is now time to eat sensibly that fits in with your lifestyle. Kerrie’s PMA Fitness can offer Nutritional advise with an activity training programme.

What we need to remember is that what we simply eat and put into our mouths, we need to make sure we exert enough energy to burn the calories we’ve consumed. Kerries PMA Fitness will calculate your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). This figure will calculate the minimum number of calories your body requires at rest then an activity calculation will be added to get the maximum number of calories your body requires when active. Eating less is not the answer as it will slow down your metabolism. Kerrie’s PMA Fitness can provide you with a food diary to monitor your daily eating patterns, identify where you are going right and how you can make changes on where you are going wrong. So if you are after a balanced nutritional plan or just looking for healthy eating ideas Kerrie’s PMA Fitness can create solutions to suit all your nutritional needs.

Why Nutrition is important ?

Do you ever think about why you eat? The simple answers are because you are hungry, tired and your stomach is rumbling. Sometimes you might also eat because you are bored, sad or happy, just because it’s lunchtime, or because that chocolate-cake, packet of crips and fizzy drink is quick, convenient and tickles your taste buds.

These are some of the emotional and physical reasons why you eat, but do you ever put much thought into why your body needs food? Not just any food, by the way, but healthy, good-for-you food? Why is good nutrition important? The foods you eat provide the energy your body needs to function. Just like you need to put fuel in your car or recharge your mobile phone, your body needs to be fed energy-providing foods every day. The main form of energy for your body is carbohydrates. Your body has the easiest time digesting carbohydrates like sugar and starch. Carbohydrates are broken down into individual glucose, fructose or galactose units. Glucose is your body’s favorite form of energy.

If you don’t get enough carbohydrates, your body can make glucose from protein or fat — and if you get too many carbohydrates, your body is very good at storing them as fat! Your body is an extremely important machine and we often forget the importance of looking after it. Going back to the car, if we do not do a regular oil change, refuel and put it into the garage for a regular MOT or tyre check your car will eventually become less efficient than it was when you first bought it. Our body’s are the same and you need to make sure you look after it. Nutrition as well as physical exercise is how we make it more efficient to become functional and allow you to do everyday living things. Kerriespmafitness can review your nutritional intake, give advice and look for solutions to make your relationship with food a good one.
