The 7 Day Meal Plan To Get Ready For Spartan Race
Start with this one week Spartan eating plan. It will change your perspective just as much as it changes your routine. Breaking your routine is the first step in starting a new habit. The week will grant you an insight into a whole new way of eating, which you can practice going forward.
We tell you exactly what you need to put on your shopping list, exactly how to prepare your meals, and the exact nutritional content you are getting from them. Just follow our lead.
Much of this eating plan can be prepared in advance, so during the week you just might find more time on your hands. Use that time to get to work on other fitness goals.
A quality nutrition plan takes more than weight goals into account. For athletes especially, it requires maintaining the right balance of fats, protein, and carbohydrates from quality sources.
Your Spartan Meal Plan Includes:
Healthy Fats that will decrease inflammation and improve heart health, all while transporting fat soluble vitamins that are key in energy metabolism.
Quality protein that provides essential amino acids and helps maintain lean muscle mass.
Complex carbohydrates with fibre to keep you full and provide steady energy.
Optional protein supplementation for those requiring additional support.
