What Is Your Fitness Plan Missing?

What Is Your Fitness Plan Missing?

Is Your Fitness Plan Doing More Harm Than Good?

Do you find yourself working out endlessly but not hitting your weight loss or health goals? Do you spend hours in the gym, but fail to see any big changes you are looking for? Working out can be hard, especially if you aren’t totally sure how to get started. You may think you’re doing it right, but many plans fall short as they do not account for the whole health picture. There is a method to the madness of fitness planning.

You can be running dozens of miles a week or hitting the weights for hours but if there is no correlation between your exercise and what you are eating, then you might be unknowingly harming your body. In order to reach your fitness goals, you may need to take in other factors like diet and mental attitude.

So what does that mean? It means a good workout routine combined with a diet consisting of whole foods like vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, protein, and even some carbohydrates along with the right attitude, will yield better results than just focusing on exercising alone. Getting started, make sure you go in with the right attitude. A positive mindset will pay off big in the future. Surround yourself with motivation and encouragement. Also, take steps to factor in your diet by asking questions like:

  • Are the foods that I am eating helping me or hurting my health goals?
  • Am I getting the right amount of fruits and vegetables?
  • Am I eating the correct amount of food overall?
  • Should I be supplementing my food intake?
  • Should I incorporate a nutritional drink? Or Is my current nutritional drink doing more harm than good?

If you want your car to safely get you from Point A to Point B, you have to give it the right kind of fuel. The human body is no different. The best way to fuel your body is following a fitness plan that incorporates all aspects of a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine.

Is Your Nutritional Drink Actually Bad for You?

When considering supplements and nutritional drinks, it’s important to understand their role and limitations. Consumers often view nutritional drinks to be a magic bullet, providing them with proper workout fuel. While some nutritional drinks can provide aid in short-term fuel they are often loaded with unnecessary ingredients to enhance flavor or shelf life. The truth is, most nutritional drinks on the market do not work with the body to maximize recovery and health.

Some nutritional drinks act as a temporary substitute to replace a meal and others are designed to be consumed between meals. Nutritional drinks are great if you have a low/lost appetite, difficulty in chewing, can’t prepare balanced meals (possibly for health reasons), and/or are recovering from surgery or illnesses when eating a full meal wouldn’t easily come. They may also provide needed additional fuel for those who are in intense training regimes.  

In these situations, nutritional drinks may provide a substitute to get the nutrients you need if you cannot eat a full meal. On the other hand, many nutritional drinks may be counterproductive to your health goals with prolonged consumption, due to the extra calories, high sugar content and preservatives. Consuming them while eating a regular meal may also compound the issue by increasing your calories to levels that may hinder your overall fitness goals.

But — not all nutrient drinks are the same.

While many of the nutritional drinks on the market may be counterproductive to your goals, Haelan 951 is great for someone looking for a science-backed, immune-boosting, antioxidant-packed drink. It’s rich in proteins, selenium, zinc, vitamin A, B1, B2, B12, C, D3, E, K1, and amino acids making it a great source of nutrients to nourish and recover your body.

While many other nutritional drinks are packed with sugar, the Haelan 951 has no added sugar and helps boost your immune system, fight inflammation, and reduce oxidative stress all at the same time.

While there are many things to consider when setting up a diet to compliment your fitness plan, there are two key components that may get overlooked, anti-inflammatories and antioxidants. Both of these components may help you reach peak health and start healing from the inside out.

Benefits of Anti-Inflammatory Supplements

The first component to consider is inflammation. Inflammation is simply your body’s way of protecting itself against injury, illness, or infection.

In this sense, it’s actually normal for your body to become inflamed whenever you’re getting sick or injured. However, long-term inflammation is not good and can begin to cause damage to your body. It’s for this reason that you should consider adding anti-inflammatory foods to your diet.

Some examples of anti-inflammatory foods are vegetables, high-fat fruits line avocado, fatty fishes like salmon, and various teas. While it is great to eat anti-inflammatory foods, you can also get it through our nutrient-dense, whole food derived, Haelan 951.

By adding the Haelan 951 to your diet, you will quickly see the impacts of the anti-inflammatory properties.

What might an anti-inflammatory diet help with?

Sports recovery, improved mood, more energy, better blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and decreased risk of major diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and depression.

Benefits of Antioxidants

The second often overlooked component of a health-conscious diet is antioxidants. Our bodies must maintain a balance of antioxidants and free radicals to function correctly.

Antioxidants are responsible for protecting our cells from damage. One way our cells are damaged is through oxidative stress induced by excessive free radicals. Antioxidants are responsible for neutralizing these free radicals, which in turn, will help in protecting your cells from damage.

Dark chocolate, beans, raspberries, strawberries, and beets are some of the best sources of antioxidants. Haelan 951 is also packed full of antioxidants, making it a great choice for anyone looking to boost their immune systems ability to function properly.  

What might an antioxidant rich diet help with?

Sports recovery, aging, reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, arthritis, stroke, respiratory diseases, and increased immune function.

Anti-inflammation properties and antioxidants are two often overlooked components that you should look into including in your diet. If you add these little tweaks to your diet and fitness plan, they may have a powerful, and long-lasting impact on your overall health and fitness. Be sure to drink plenty of water, as your body will need to flush out the toxins that you are encountering throughout your day.

If you are currently drinking a nutritional drink, take some time to examine the ingredients. Unfortunately, you may likely realize that the drink you have been relying on to fuel you, is actually doing the opposite. Packed with more sugar than vitamins, most drinks are not worth the cost nor the toll they may take on your body.

It’s essential to fuel your body with a nutrient-rich drink that won’t hurt it with a high sugar content, which is why Haelan 951 is a great option for people of all ages.

Finally, a positive attitude will help to round out the picture of whole health. Stay motivated by surrounding yourself with positive influences and encouragement. You can do this!! Your journey to better health starts with a big decision and continues with the many small ones that complete the picture.
