Our clients often ask us, “What should I eat?” In fact, this question is so common, we want to take a few minutes to answer it. For many of us, we were taught at a young age what we should eat and what we should steer away from. What’s more, a new diet seems to pop up every other month. These diets often eliminates whole portions of the food pyramid we learned as kids.
So, how do you know what’s ok and what’s off limits?
Lucky for us, our friends at Precision Nutrition put together this infographic that breaks it all down. It’s posted at the gym, and we’re sharing it here for you as a handy reference.
