Alas! A graphic artist is born!
Hello everyone! As always, I hope this post finds you in the best of health and spirits! Stage two of my research phase is to better understand nutrition. Here is a general roundabout of what I know about nutrition. Protein=good Carbs=bad. I do know that protein is needed to build muscle as well. On top of that I need lots of vitamins to stay healthy and eating fats are bad. I couldn't tell you the difference between trans fat and saturated fat. On my quest I even came across Monounsaturated fats and Polyunsaturated fats which I honestly had no previous recollection of ever learning about in gym, health, or anywhere else. So I'm in need of some schooling. People have left comments about different aspects of eating, but before I charge headfirst into a specific regimen, I need to understand for myself why I need to make these changes. Cause if I don't know why I'm doing something or how it effects me then I have no reason to motivate myself to do it! Through google I found the CDC's health and nutrition area. In there they had pages for everything I was setting out to look for. I'll link the pages as I summarize what I learned.
