        • Nutrition: if you have not completed the Week 1 Nutrition homework, make sure you review that before working through the assignments below:
          • Now that you have caught a new revelation for the importance of nutrition, let’s get to questions like, “As an athlete or somebody who wants to move and perform like one, what do I eat and how much?” That’s a loaded question because no individual is the same. There are factors that must be considered like age, body type, body composition (body weight, lean muscle mass, body fat percentage), energy expenditure, type of training, training goal, stress levels–and on-and-on the list goes. This is why at Actualize we conduct personal 1-on-1 nutrition coaching sessions to learn these factors, create a strategy and relationally walk with our clients through their nutrition journey. When we are not able to meet in person, we start with two potential routes:
            • Route 1 – Competitive Athletes: competitive athletes have different energy expenditure and needs than weekend warriors for example. Fill out the Actualize Sports & Fitness Nutrition Worksheet to learn your caloric and nutrient intake requirements based on your 1. Lifestyle/Energy Expenditure 2. Goal 3. Body Type. Note that the numbers derived from this worksheet are a starting place.
            • Route 2 – Those Who Want To Move & Perform Like Athletes: whether you are a weekend warrior or recreationally active, you’re still an athlete, but you may not need the same focus as a competitive athlete. Click here to learn about how to use your hand to implement the portion sizing that aligns with your goals and activity level.
              • Resources:
                • Whether you are a competitive athlete or someone who want to move and perform like one, use these nutrition tools and resources:
                  • 50 Recommended Recipes
                  • Grocery List for Successful Nutrition
                  • See the Example Meal Plan Templates under the Additional Resources & Tools section below
                  • Learning what supports your health, fitness, strength, performance and life goals requires a journey that is both quantitative and qualitative. It’s important to periodically ask questions like, “Am I moving toward my goals in a quantitative way? Am I seeing results?” If yes, “Is this a lifestyle (not a diet or burden) that comes alongside my goals in a sustainable spirit?”
