Eating healthy pays off!Making the decision to eat nutritious foods that improve your health on a regular basis may be one of the best decisions that you can ever make. The tips listed below will allow you to perform optimally during a mud run.

Poor food choices are the number one reason for the high level of ill-health in the United States. Too much sugar, salt, and fat, along with a regular dosage of GMO foods and harmful food additives like aspartame and high fructose corn syrup are literally a recipe for disaster.

Besides regular exercise and drinking enough water, the only other way to get really healthy is to eat right. Making the right food choices requires high levels of diligence, motivation and focus.

Before making the decision to improve your diet, it is important to understand why you should commit to eating better. When your why is strong enough, the desire to study good nutrition and follow a healthy eating plan will remain strong. Be sure to put aside any stress, distractions or adversity in your life to help remain focused. This is important because one of the main temptations of junk food is that it provides comfort. Will power is often not enough to resist eating an excessive amount of the wrong foods. Instead, it is necessary to re-condition your mind to understand exactly why eating well is a prescription for a long, healthy, and happy life.

Now is the Time to Eat Well

Many people decide to eat nutritious foods because of the benefits they offer, such as: losing weight, recuperation from exercise, increasing energy and looking and feeling great. Eating for nutritional value is far more important than some of the factors listed above. Committing to looking after your body can change your life for the better. You will be able to enjoy the fullness of life instead of trying to cope with illness, fatigue, pain and constant discomfort.

The best foods for higher endurance
Top 4 Foods for Improved Health, Vitality, and Endurance

Here is a list of four top food choices that will put you on the path of committing to a new healthy eating lifestyle:

1. Healthy Nut butters. Almond butter is much healthier than the culturally popular peanut butter. This butter is rich in nutrients like protein, Vitamin E, potassium and magnesium.

2. Fruits and vegetables. These provide a rich spectrum of vitamins, minerals and enzymes necessary for good health. Include leafy green vegetables like collard greens, swiss chard and kale.

3. Nuts and seeds. They are tasty, nutritious and can be used as healthy snacks between meals. Try snacking on nuts or seeds rather than junk food such as chips, candy or ice cream.

4. Healthy grains. Sprouted grain and whole grain bread are healthier alternatives to white bread. One increasingly popular grain is Quinoa, a super food from South America. It is a grain that the Inca warriors used to fuel their long distance runs.

Naturally, this short list can easily be extended once you develop a deep appreciation for eating well. All different types of people can participate in mud runs, but sticking to a nutritious diet will provide all of the benefits listed above and then some!
