Nutrition and Recovery 101
If our body were a car, good nutrition would be the equivalent high octane fuel and a good night’s rest would be that of a pit stop. I’m sure all you car fanatics could relate to that.

I don’t mean to play the devil, but I’m afraid I have to break it to you. Spending two hours at the gym is no excuse for binging on a pack of cookies for dinner. ‘But it’s okay to eat junk if you do an hour of cardio, right?’ No! Who ever said that?

Now, I am not telling you to eat like a patient for the rest of your life. What I’m going to throw light upon via this eBook is the importance of adequate rest and proper nutrition as a part of your fitness lifestyle.
