Yeah, sleep is kind of a boring subject but a super important one when it comes to your health.
It doesn't boost your ego when you rock out a solid 8 hours of sleep compared to bench pressing a new personal best. Although... after being a new parent I do get pretty excited after a good nights sleep.
Photos that you post to Instagram of you sleeping just aren't as attractive as a picture of the pretty salad you ate at the local cafe.
You take your pick...
Let's be honest there is nothing fun, glamorous or sexy about sleep. I'm talking about sleep, not what happens before you sleep. ;) Sleep is crucial to your health. Here are just a few facts about sleep.
I'm a huge fan of the following book if you need to work on your sleep, Sleep Smarter: 21 Proven Tips to Sleep Your Way To a Better Body, Better Health, and Bigger Success. Shawn does a great job of laying out some easy to implement strategies to upgrade your sleep environment and quality.
Eating meals balanced in macronutrients is a skill that takes some practice. First off what does that mean???
It means getting equal amount of calories from protein, carbs and fat. This meal gets 30% of its calories from protein, 36% from carbs, and 34% from fat.
For a vast majority of the people out there a balanced approach like this is going to be the best. Yeah keto can work and yeah a high carb vegan diet can work for some. For most to optimize body composition, health, and performance staying balanced will be the best approach!
