In a recent study in 2014 25% of the Irish population don’t eat enough vegetables in their daily food intake. Our team of Personal Trainers at The Edge: Clontarf all believe we should eat large amounts of good quality fresh vegetables every day for optimal health.
Most vegetables that we consume are not very calorie dense so this means we can and should take in more green veg with each meal. There are many different benefits from an increase of green veg in your diet:
1. An alkaline body
2. Aids digestion
3. Boosts immune system
4. Supplements your natural minerals and vitamins
You can achieve your RDA of greens by eating a combination of vegetables such as:
It’s important when you look to get your ‘5 a day’ in that you focus moreso on vegetables than fruits. Vegetables are more nutrient dense and aid better with fat loss due to a lower natural sugar count.
If you find that you struggle to consume an adequate amount of vegetables, you can try a nutritional supplement. Our product Infinity fuel is the perfect supplement to add into your nutritional plan, with each serving of Infinity fuel having up to 8 servings of fruit and vegetables, ideal for topping up your current vegetable intake, particularly in the run up to your holidays or a big occassion.
There’s a reason why most celebrities opt for personal trainers when they are making a change to improve their fitness, health and appearance.
Working with a personal trainer is the quickest, easiest and most successful to reach your health and fitness goals and has proved so effective that personal training has now spread beyond the rich and famous. Today, people from all walks of life are opting to finance their health in place of eating out, drinking or buying expensive clothes or things they simply don’t need.
Alan, 23, Howth, explains why he started training in The Edge: Clontarf:
“I’ve always been in pretty good shape, or so I thought, but after a few years in college I began to feel lazy, tired and unfit very quickly- I contacted the guys in The Edge and haven’t looked back since. I have changed my eating habits and they have become part of my daily routine. It’s just a different way of life and it’s worth every penny”
