Simple changes in diet to help with fitness


Adding certain foods to your diet will almost always result in an additional boost to fitness goals. Below there are just a few foods that serve this purpose. Some of them have been called “Super Fruits” for good reason. Some of the healthiest and most effective super fruits are gelatinous fibers such as Chia seeds and Aloe Vera and Chlorophyll containing plants such as parsley and coriander.

A good way to help with diet is juicing fresh fruit every morning and adding one or more of the following ingredients to the mix. Try to have different colour fruits to get the most out of them.

Chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds (unlike flaxseeds). One ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.

Aloe Vera can be in a gel or latex form. We recommend drinking Aloe Vera juice which is the ultimate healthy habit, as it aids in weight loss, digestion, immune function, and even easing general discomfort.

Adding parsley or coriander to a fresh fruit drink will give additional benefits of Chlorophyll which is a green pigment found in plants. Chlorophyll is used for constipation, detoxification and wound healing.
