Week 6 - SportFIT Cookin’
Introduction: Over the past several weeks you have learned how to build a customized SportFIT nutrition plan. This was accomplished by applying a simple formula we’ve branded as the Q2F principle. The Q2F principle necessitates that the quantity of food consumed is balanced by the quality of fuel supplied and the frequency of intake. When all three Q2F principles are in proper balance, food can be utilized to meet energy demands efficiently. This week we will conclude the program by looking at the “F” in Q2F; frequency of fueling. Additionally, we will discuss how to use Macro Maps as quick guides to assess target CHO, PRO & Fat goals and provide simple strategies on how to prepare foods to boost peak performance..
Background: In the most basic terms, metabolism is the process by which our body takes the food and beverages consumed and converts them to energy for either immediate utilization or to be used later. This is dependent on your nutritional state, fueling regimen, activity level, and health status. Typically one is in a continuous state of catabolism (breaking food to supply energy to the body) or anabolism (rebuilding to sustain life and activity). The rate and efficiency of one’s metabolism is dependent on genetics, biological needs, storage capacity, frequency of delivery and quality of fuel supplied.
