Daily Food Choices and Bad Habits

This is a subject that is frequently breached between my personal training clients and me.   And the scope of the conversation is far reaching... yet I will make it straight forward and very basic.

Our daily requirements for food stuffs that will give our body the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it requires to sustain itself and maintain healthy bodily functions is relatively consistant on a day to day basis. . .
It's based on a few factors such as age, gender, height, weight, body composition, and physical activity.
We need to understand these things and eat accordingly.

I get a lot of things like "Why am I weaker these days, than last week or last month?"  Or, "Why do I not have as much endurance?"  And the question I hear day in day out . . . "Why am I not losing body weight after a month of consistant exercise and cardio?"
These questions can all be summed up and addressed in one answer . . . Bad nutritional choices and or intake.  The fact of the matter is this: We must give the body the building blocks required for it to thrive on the stress we induce with physical activity.  To rebuild and repair the muscle tissue we damage via resistance training . . . and/or fuel the body during sustained exercises like jogging or aerobics . . .
And one might ask "How can I do it?"

Well, simply put, eat what your body needs and not what you want . .  We will have to gather some basic information about yourself, then we can determine what your caloric intake should be on a daily bases.  Itís quite simple . . . Gather the information, put into the equation in the proper places and follow some basic math principles. (YOU CAN CHECK OUT MY FOOD INTAKE CALCULATOR TO FIGURE OUT YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS.)  Then with this information you will manipulate the caloric requirements between the basic nutrients, carbohydrates, protein, and fats.  Be consistant with your intake and as time goes on you can manipulate the percentage of nutrients you consume in relation to your daily caloric requirements.
