4 Common Food Mistakes
Posted by Agoga on Wednesday, June 13, 2018
This week’s live video Q&A series is a goodie! Lib and Nic discuss 4 common food mistakes they come across when reviewing visual food journals for clients, with the outcome of helping to improve overall nutrition and health/performance.
The topic for this week’s live video Q&A series, where we answer questions coming directly from our community of Agogian athletes, is about pre-workout nutrition and supplements. Click PLAY to hear Nic and Lib’s chat on the topic, and stay tuned ’til the end for their number one pre-workout recommendation!
In this chat, Libby and Nic cover:
- Eat, drink or fast? Options for your early morning training sessions
- How to prepare for afternoon or evening sessions
- Do you need to change your food intake depending on the type of training you’re doing?
- Our number one pre-workout recommendation
Make sure you check out the chat and comment below if you have any other questions on training, nutrition, or performance you’d like the Agoga team to answer! We’ll be back next week!
We’ve previously chatted about post-workout nutrition so if you missed it – you can check it out here!
Our live video Q&A series is based on the questions our community are presenting to us each week and today’s topic is one of those age-old concerns that comes up alllllll the time – when and what should you eat (and avoid!) directly after a workout. Yep, it’s time to talk post-workout nutrition Agogians!
In this chat, Libby and Nic cover:
- What’s more important: what you’re putting in your mouth, or when?
- The importance of post-workout nutrition
- Do you really need to eat during that magic 15-30 minute window?
- Why listening to your body’s hunger cues is important
- Foods to include and avoid in the hour after you’ve just worked out
- The part hydration plays
- The one food you should definitely avoid immediately after you workout
This month I’ve been taking on the Nuts For Life #nuts30days30ways challenge, which involves swapping a less saintly snack for a small handful of nuts every day throughout March. I thought I’d share these 5 easy to make nut recipes I’ve had on repeat, in the hope they might inspire our Agogian army to fuel up on all the good stuff.
There’s never a dull moment these days on Bondi Road! You’ve already read about our sweaty (in a great way) infrared sauna friends at Nimbus & Co, and now it’s time to meet Accredited Nutritionist Claire Barker from Whole Health Nutrition who’ll be practising from the beautiful Nimbus & Co wellness studio. Heads up – we’re talking about chocolate raspberry & hazelnut bark AND raw snickers bars in this blog… are you ready?
We’ve been asked about breakfast a LOT recently and it seems ideas on what to eat and how to get the job done quickly are seriously lacking. So let’s get down to business – we know you’re busy, we know you don’t have a lot of time to create foodie wonderfulness, so today we are just handing over a few super simple ideas to pop on your plate, then in your mouth.
There were some seriously interesting discussion points and questions that came up at our nutrition talk last week. Here’s a quick summary about what your coaches have tried, tested, loved and not-really-loved over the years.
It’s January and that means working out and eating better is front of mind for most people. If you’re an Agogian, your workouts are sorted already, so now it’s time to get your food on track!
We’re not about cutting out particular food groups at Agoga. A wholefood approach, srategic moderation, understanding portion sizes and paying attention to your own individual genetics and body signals is what we’re all about – everybody is different after all. But there is one kind of food we really do suggest cutting out for good. Yep, for good.
