A fitness diet is not about starving yourself or cutting out major food groups for the quickest results. A fitness diet is different to other diets and not only will it help with weight loss but it will help with building muscle and improving fitness.

Fitness diets will encourage you to eat more of the important fitness food in order for your body to do well in fitness exercises and workouts.

What is a Fitness Diet

A fitness diet means thinking about every aspect of eating and consumption that you need to do during a fitness plan.

As well as thinking about what you should be eating for each meal in the day, a fitness diet requires you to think about what to eat for working out, whether it is before, after or during:

  • Whole wheat toast with sliced banana and cinnamon (before)
  • Grilled chicken with roasted mixed vegetables (after)
  • Greek yogurt with granola and fruit (before)
  • Drink water for shorter workouts and sports drinks for longer sessions (during)
  • Salmon with sweet potatoe (after)
  • Oatmeal with fresh fruit (before)
  • Energy bars, only for longer sessions of exercise (during)
