The Intelligent Athlete’s Guide To Fueling Performance

If you don’t understand calories, macronutrients, and the value of whole foods, you’ll never progress from average Joe to elite athlete. Unfortunately, misguided dietary recommendations and a lack of understanding by athletes of all levels contribute to widespread confusion about the best way to eat for performance.
These seven simple guidelines will allow you to adjust your nutrition to meet the demands of intense training. 

1. Simplify Your Daily Meal Template

Simplify your nutrition and understand performance nutrition pillars to create a blueprint for increased power, strength, lean muscle, and health. We tend to over-complicate nutritional strategies instead of developing our own personalized profile over time. Here are two simple daily tips for better performance:
  1. Meal Spacing: Fasting, dietary restrictions plans, and all that jazz aside, athletes need to be feeding for physiological growth, fueling for training sessions, and recovering through nutrition. To determine meal spacing, take the number of waking hours you have each day and divide that by two or three hours. For example, an athlete who sleeps six hours a day should be eating about 6-9 times per day (and get more sleep).
  2. Calorie Splits: Split your calories across each meal based on proximity to workouts. Pre-training, intra-training, and post-training meals should be richer in carbohydrates and protein. The other three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) can be more balanced in terms of macronutrient distributions. Add a few snacks throughout the day to increase caloric intake if need be, and stay consistent with your plan.


Eating a variety of whole, natural foods will provide your body with the nutritional support it needs to perform at a higher level.

2. Diversify Your Plate for Better Health

One of the best ways to diversify nutrition and increase your health and performance is to eat foods that are closest to the earth. Foods that are consumed closest to their original form tend to be the best options. These include:
  • Brightly colored fruits
  • Vibrant vegetables
  • Animals and fish
  • Grains
  • Nuts and seeds (butters too)
  • Fats (MCTs, animal fats)
As you move further away from the natural form, you see processed sugars, salts, and and preservatives. The more steps and ingredients that went into making your food, the less ideal it is. 

3. Calories Are King

It’s quite simple. Eat more to get bigger and eat less to get smaller. Too often we neglect the basic principles of energy surplus and energy deficit. 
The human body is an amazing specimen. We have the ability to transfer any food source (fat, carbohydrate, and protein) into a single molecule that can be used for energy transfer. Regardless of what is left for the body to use, it can and will produce energy from any one of those sources.
Understanding your caloric needs is based on your resting metabolic rate, current body leanness, training frequency, and goals. Try this calculator out to establish your daily caloric needs. Or determine your daily caloric needs from this table. And remember, if you overeat calories, regardless of where they are from, you will gain weight and vice versa.
Estimating your daily caloric needs is essential to your performance. Reference this chart from Renaissance Periodization as a starting point.
Regardless of your specific performance goals, you must first determine your overall calorie intake. Once that is established, you can then fluctuate macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) according to your training intensity.

4. Protein, Protein, Protein

Research by Renaissance Periodization suggests that active athletes can synthesize about 0.8-1.0 grams per pound (g/lb) of bodyweight per day. The ideal amount to be consumed at one time is 20-30g of protein.1
How to Calculate Your Daily Guidelines:
  1. When building your dietary plan for protein, aim for 1.0 g/lb per day.
  2. Multiply that by 4 (calories per gram of protein) to get your total protein calorie requirement.
  3. Subtract that number from your total daily calorie goal to determine the correct amount of carbohydrates and fats you will need.
  • 190lb male needs 3,000 calories per day
  • 190g of protein/day x 4 calories/gram = 760 calories from protein
  • 3000 – 760 = 2240 calories left for carb and fat intake

5. Carbohydrates Are Critical

Performance athletes need carbohydrates. I repeat. Performance athletes need carbohydrates.2 Carbohydrates serve many functions in optimal performance:
  • Improved brain function and recovery
  • Increased time to fatigue
  • Improved muscle recovery
  • Improved aerobic capacity (enable fat oxidation)
  • Improved high-intensity training performance
  • Improved muscular energy
Average gym goers often overlook the importance of carbs for performance. You should aim to consume 1-2g/lb of bodyweight each day. The more intense your training sessions are, the closer to 2g/lb you can eat. On rest days, you can stay closer to 1g/lb or slightly under to keep body fat at bay. Training more than one time per day increases these ranges, so adjust accordingly.
How to Calculate Your Daily Guidelines:
  1. When building your dietary plan for carbohydrates, aim for a gram per lb/day.
  2. Multiply that number by 4.
  3. Subtract that number from your daily calorie goal from above to determine the correct amount of fats you will need.
  • 190lb male x 1-2g of carbohydrates/day x 4 calories/gram = 760-1520 calories
  • Already determined 2240 calories left for carb and fat intake
  • 2240 – 760 = 1480 calories left for fat intake on rest days
  • 2240 – 1520 = 720 calories left for fat intake on intense training days
  • For moderate-intensity days, adjust carbs to fall within 1-2g/lb range

6. Fit Fats In

Fats act as energy reserves for long duration exercise. They are energy dense, which makes them key for athletes looking to build muscle while minimizing carbohydrate intolerance and maintaining healthy body fat. Fluctuate your fat intake to match your overall caloric goal once your specific protein and carbohydrate goals are met each day. If you want to gain mass, you can provide the body with enough raw material to promote growth by consuming more fats once your upper limit of carbohydrates is met.
How to Calculate Your Daily Guidelines:
  1. Find the number of calories you have left after you have accounted for protein and carb intake.
  2. Divide that number by 9 (calories per gram of fat).
  • 1480 calories left for fat intake on rest days
  • 1480 / 9 = 165g of fat per day on rest days
  • 720 calories left for fat intake on intense training days
  • 720 / 9 = 80g of fat per day on intense training days

7. Use Supplements to Supplement

Most research on over-the-counter supplements has failed to show repeatable proof that the products improve performance. But there are a few time-tested supplements that seem to work well for most athletes.
Use these supplements to increase performance only after your whole foods and training are spot on.
  • Whey Protein: Whey protein is an amazing low-calorie source of complete proteins. The availability and convenience of these makes whey protein ideal for athletes struggling to meet their protein requirements. Opt for whey proteins that are low in sugar, preservatives, and fillers. A favorite of mine is a lactose- and gluten-free option with less than 1g of carbohydrate. Mix with water, milk, or coffee and you are ready to go.
  • Creatine: Creatine is a quick energy source found in muscle. It has been shown to improve both muscular force output and acute exhaustion from intense training. Simply adding creatine monohydrate could elevate your performance enough to keep your progress going.
  • Fish Oils: Omega-3 fatty acids need to be ingested via external food sources, and are vital in increasing muscle strength, performance, and growth. These are essential to all athletes because we cannot produce them ourselves. They strengthen the bones and lungs, improve blood flow, and combat the negative immune effects of intense training.
  • Greens Supplements and Fiber: Intense training demands higher amounts of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, increased food consumption may impact digestion. Greens and fiber supplements restore normal digestion and aid in muscle recovery.

Eat Like the Athlete You Are

Follow these basic guidelines to take your performance to the next level. Keep in mind, this blueprint is ideal for most athletes without dietary restrictions. If you have special medical considerations, consult a Registered Dietician for more guidance on your individual needs.
Athletes have significantly different metabolic demands than non-athletes. As we develop better fitness, factors such as sleep, recovery, hydration, and nutrition play a determining role in our ability to withstand the increased physiological and psychological stressors of advanced training and life. Nailing down your nutrition will give you the fuel you need to move from amateur to elite. 

Why You’re Not Making Progress And What You Can Do About It

I was 9 years old the first time I heard the word “plateau.”

I had been competing in gymnastics for 2 years, practicing no less than 9 hours a week, and hadn’t achieved any new tricks for months.  I was feeling frustrated and wanted to quit.  Luckily, my Mom talked me out of it, but I learned this lesson at a very young age:

Lack of progress is extremely frustrating and demotivating. 

There are a number of reasons why a person trying to make changes to her health, physique, or performance may experience a plateau.

Depending on your goals, you may be over- or underestimating your calories, not choosing the appropriate food sources, or you may not be following her training program correctly or consistently. All of these are extremely important of course, but what if you are doing those things? What if you’re nailing your nutrition and you’re consistent with the execution of your training program, and you’re still not seeing results?

In my experience, it’s usually one of two things:

  1. You’re not tracking your progress
  2. You’re not tracking the correct measures of progress

Tracking is a critical component of making progress over the long-haul.

Tracking Your Progress

Not tracking your progress can be problematic for several reasons, including but not limited to:

  • If you’re making small losses/gains consistently over time, and you don’t have any data to refer back to, it’s difficult to see how far you’ve actually come.
  • If you don’t have any information about whether or not what you’re doing is working, you never know when to adjust your nutrition or training program.
  • If you’re not tracking and acknowledging the small progress milestones, you may mistakenly think you’re not making any progress, and you’ll feel less motivated to continue.

Of course, tracking progress isn’t just about weighing yourself or taking pictures. It’s helpful to track other measures of progress such as health, lifestyle, and performance markers as well, which you’ll read about in a moment.

Tracking The Correct Measures of Progress

Tracking the correct measures of progress is critical to your success. If you’re unknowingly tracking the wrong measure of progress, you won’t have accurate information about whether or not you’re making any. Here’s an example:

I hear a lot of women say, “I want to lose weight.” But I think that what most of these women are really saying is, “I want to lose fat.”  That is a very important distinction.

When you focus on the scale as the only indicator of progress, you don’t actually know what you’re losing. You don’t know if you’re losing fat, muscle, bone mass, water. If you want to lose fat, it’s really important that you don’t rely on the scale as your sole measure of progress.

You may have been told at some point to “throw the scale out the window!” If the number on the scale (or even the idea of stepping on the scale) affects your mood and well-being, then I totally agree with that advice. It’s absolutely not necessary to weigh yourself on a regular basis. However, it is data that when combined with other data, could provide a more detailed picture of what’s going on in your body.

For example, say that you do weigh yourself two weeks in a row, and also take girth measurements. You notice that your weight is the same, but your body is actually getting smaller. What does this mean? Well, you’ve most likely lost a little body fat and gained a little muscle! That’s the really cool thing about lean mass (muscle) compared to fat mass. Five pounds of lean mass take up significantlyless space than five pounds of fat mass.

I know you’ve heard that “muscle weighs more than fat,” right? Well, that doesn’t make any sense, because five pounds is five pounds, whether it’s muscle or fat. However, muscle is more dense than fat, so five pounds of muscle will take up less space than five pounds of body fat, resulting in the same weight but smaller girth measurements.

Below are two pictures of me. The one on the left is from 2004, when I weighed 185 pounds, and the one on the right is from 2012 when I weighed 183.5 pounds.

There’s only a 1.5 pound difference in those two pictures, but my body looks drastically different. That’s because I’d lost a significant amount of body fat, and gained a significant amount of muscle. If I’d just used the scale to measure what that progress looked like, it wouldn’t look like I had made much progress at all!

There are a few of things you can do to measure physical progress without focusing solely on weight.

Ways To Measure Aesthetic/Physical Progress:

  1. Scale/Weight (only if it doesn’t make or ruin your day)
  2. Girth measurements
  3. Skinfold measurements
  4. Pictures
  5. Clothing


How to measure:  Weigh yourself on the same scale, on the same day of the week, at the same time of day (preferably first thing in the morning after emptying your bladder and bowels), wearing the exact same clothing, or no clothing (whichever you choose, be consistent).

Pros:  If you follow the advice above, digital scales are quite accurate measurements of how much your body weighs, and in conjunction with other measures, can be very telling in terms of progress.

Cons:  Scale weight doesn’t give you any indication of what the composition of the weight gained or lost is (water, fat, muscle, bone, etc.). It can also be psychologically difficult for some women to weigh themselves on a regular basis.

Good for:  People who want to lose fat, people who want to gain muscle, people who want both. This can also be valuable for people competing in a weight-class sport.

Recommended frequency: Weekly

Girth Measurements

How to measure:  Using a soft measuring tape, choose various sites on your body to take a girth measurement. Make sure you measure yourself on the same day of the week, at the same time of day (preferably first thing in the morning after emptying your bladder and bowels), wearing the exact same clothing or no clothing. Measure in the exact same spot each time, and don’t pull the tape too tight. It should be taut, but should not squeeze you. Also, keep in mind taking more measurements will provide a clearer picture of your progress.

Pros:  Girth measurements can be help you see not only whether you’re losing or gaining, but also what you’re losing or gaining (muscle or fat), especially in conjunction with other measures. For example, if you lose inches around your waist, but gain around your hips/glutes, there’s a good chance that you’re losing fat and gaining muscle.

Cons:  Measuring in the same spot each time can be tough, especially if you’re doing the measurements yourself instead of having someone else do them for you.

Good for:  People who want to lose fat, people who want to gain muscle, people who want both.

Recommended frequency:  Bi-weekly

Skinfold Measurements

How to measure:  A healthcare or fitness professional will use calipers to measure skinfolds on different areas of your body.

Pros:  This can be a very accurate measure of how your body fat is increasing or decreasing over time, and in conjunction with other measures of progress, can tell a lot about your overall body composition.

Cons:  These measurements are extremely difficult to take accurately. In my opinion, the professional taking the measurement should have taken at least a thousand skinfold measurements on dozens of different people before you would consider letting them take your skinfold measurements, and even then, it’s hard to guarantee that the measurements are accurate.

Good for:  People who want to lose fat, people who want to lose fat and gain muscle, and people who want to keep fat gain to a minimum while they gain muscle.

Recommended frequency:  Bi-weekly or monthly


How to take them:  Have someone take pictures of you on the same day of the week, at the same time of day (preferably first thing in the morning after emptying your bladder and bowels), wearing the exact same clothing (or lack thereof), in the same room, with the same lighting, and from the same angle, every single time.

Pros:  Pictures, when take correctly, are an excellent representation of what’s happening with your body composition over time.

Cons:  Even the smallest change in lighting, angle, clothing, distance, or time of the month can result in pictures that aren’t comparable to one another. Consistency is key here.

Good for:  People who want to lose fat, people who want to gain muscle, people who want both. People competing in physique sports such as bodybuilding or figure, especially.

Recommended frequency:  Monthly


How to measure:  Choose a piece of clothing you love and that currently is bit snug on you (jeans and fitted skirts/dresses generally work well). Try it on every 2-4 weeks to see if it fits differently over time.

Pros:  If you’re not great at taking girth measurements, trying on clothing can give you a good idea of whether you’re getting bigger or smaller, and in what areas. It can also be very motivating to get closer and closer to wearing one of your favorite pieces of clothing and feeling great wearing it.

Cons:  Depending on the clothing you choose, and how your body loses/gains weight, you may find that the clothing isn’t giving you much information. For example, if you choose a skirt that’s snug, and you lose fat in your upper body first, you might be losing fat, but not noticing any changes in how your skirt fits, because you haven’t lost much in your lower body or waist first.

Good for:  People who want to lose fat, people who want to gain muscle, people who want both.

Recommended frequency:  Bi-weekly or monthly

Other Measures of Progress

While measuring aesthetic progress can be really fun and motivating, there are several other measures of progress you can track, including health markers, lifestyle markers, and performance markers. Of course, the lists below aren’t exhaustive; they’re just examples of information you might find helpful to you on your health and fitness journey.

Health markers:

  • Blood pressure
  • Resting heart rate (taken upon waking)
  • Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • Fasted insulin
  • Fasted glucose
  • Hormone panel

Tracking health markers can be really motivating on your health journey, especially if they are the reason you started exercising in the first place.

Lifestyle markers:

  • Stress
  • Energy
  • Strength
  • Mood
  • Sleep

Watching lifestyle markers improve can also be really motivating. They can also give you valuable information about your progress.  For example, if you’ve been losing fat at a steady pace for six weeks, and suddenly, during the past two weeks, you’ve hit a plateau, take a look at your sleep and stress levels.  If your sleep has been poor for the last two weeks, there’s a good chance you’ve found the culprit.  Had you not tracked your sleep, you may have unnecessarily ramped up your workouts or cut calories when really, you just needed a bit more sleep.

Performance markers:

  • Number of Push-ups completed
  • Number of Pull-ups/Chin-ups completed
  • 5-rep max on Squat
  • 5-rep max on Deadlift
  • 1-mile run time
  • Broad jump
  • Vertical jump

It may seem obvious that tracking performance markers is important when performance is your goal, but you’d be shocked at how many people still don’t track it. You can choose any performance markers that are most relevant to your specific goals, but I’ve listed a few above that you might want to track.

One more thing

Finally, in addition to tracking the values mentioned above, make sure you’re logging your workouts as well. Many women, unless they’re prompted to increase the weight they’re using for their workouts, will continue to use the same weight day after day, week after week. That’s not how you get stronger and continue to make progress in the gym. It’s really important to know how much weight you’re using, for how many reps, and how it feels so that you can continue to push yourself.

When you’re increasing your weight on an exercise always leave 1-2 reps “in the tank” so you can stay safe while still challenging yourself. Keeping 1-2 reps in the tank means that if you think you can do 10 and that’s your absolute max, then you’re going to use that weight for only 8 or 9 reps.

Example: You’re comfortably performing Dumbbell Bench Press using the 30-pound dumbbells for 3 sets of 8, which is what your program calls for. At this point, it’s time to increase to the 35-pound dumbbells. Because that’s a 17% increase in weight, you probably won’t be able to make that big of a jump, and still complete all the sets and reps with good form.

You might do something like this instead:

  • 1 set of 8 with 35 pounds
  • 1 set of 6 or 7 reps with 35 pounds
  • Drop back down and complete your last set of 8 reps with 30 pounds

If you hadn’t been logging your workouts, you would not have known that 3 sets of 8 with 30 pounds was challenging, but you could do a little bit more. You might never progress up to the 35-pound dumbbells.

As you can see, there are a number of reasons that tracking your progress in different areas is important to making and troubleshooting progress overall. We aren’t recommending that everyone track all of these numbers all the time. That can be daunting, and there are definitely periods in our lives when keeping things simple is the main goal. However, if you’re not making progress, and you want to know why, tracking the correct measures of progress over time is critical.

The advantages of Aerobic Kickboxing

Kickboxing is an alternative exercise program to indoor home fitness equipment workouts and aerobics workouts. Its popularity continues to rise. Based on the American Council on Education, the Tae-Bo kind of Vancouver kickboxing along with forms of exercise inspired by martial arts training are probably the most popular fitness classes in the majority of gyms in america. There are a number of advantages to fitness kickboxing.

Combines Resistance Training Workout and Aerobic Workout

Undertaking either an anaerobic workout (like calisthenics, Nautilus, and resistance training) or perhaps an aerobic workout (like using a stationary bike, stairmaster, and running) won’t provide you with maximum benefits. Your very best self bet for achieving overall fitness efficiently is by doing both.

For example, an advanced runner, it is possible to choose to do less running and playing lifting weights. Actually, you will see that you’ll have an overabundance strength for your runs.

The ideal exercise program computes your whole body, rather than only a few parts. Men with surplus fat over their abdominal muscles are known to focus more about crunches to be able to reduce their mid-section. Kickboxing in Vancouver incorporates the cardio component.

Similarly, women are often more worried about their thighs and hips. Conventional wisdom dictates which they do lunges and squats to tone muscles over these regions. However, without a holistic exercise program, like fitness kickboxing, developed muscles will always be protected by fat as well as the buttocks and legs appear bigger. Cardio- or fitness-kickboxing ends up the entire body.

Time is employed Efficiently

Out from the 168 hours available per week, you just need at the very least three hours of cardio or fitness kickboxing–roughly 1.8% from the total time–to get results.
