1. Make sure that you are eating a balanced diet with plenty of fibre as well as a good variety of fruit and veggies. Vegetables can taste good! Look online for some healthy and tasty recipes.
2. Getting sufficient sleep is crucial for you to recoup from training, this means at least 7.5 hours nightly. Put you health ahead of your social calendar!
3. Work as part of your limits. Over training can bring about minor injuries which can result in much more serious problems later on.
4. Take a probiotic supplement to keep your immune system going. Choose a high quality, sugar-free supplement with plenty of “live” bacteria. Dr Mouton recommends the UK company, OptiBac Probiotics.
5. Drinking fluids before, during and after workout is answer to keeping one’s body hydrated and thus balanced constantly, which will help control muscle strain. Water can also be best for getting rid of pathogens and boosting the defense mechanisms, for improving skin health, and then for improving energy and concentration levels.
6. Be careful when drinking any sugary drinks as these can cause yeasts & pathogens to multiply and cause an imbalance in your gut. People have a tendency to eat way too much sugar currently; the body cannot handle high amounts of sugar.
7. Wear the right gear, particularly if doing exercise. Trainers which don’t support your feet correctly could cause injuries. If you over-pronate (roll inwards) ensure you wear an orthotic insole to take care of foot alignment.
