Do you know how to maximize your performance at the gym?

You might have experienced that some days you are as strong as Superman or Wonder Woman at the gym, and on other days you feel like a lazy couch potato who never will get better at this fitness thing. Worry no more! The solution is likely to be as simple as you are not paying attention to your meals or you might have overdone the low calorie foods prior to your workout session.

Fueling your body with the right nutrients prior to physical exercise will give you the energy to perform better. You might have heard that if you would like to lean down, you must exercise with an empty stomach, because it helps burning fat. Well, true it is, if your glycogen stores are empty, your body is forced to burn fat to gain energy. Although, if you are not a highly experienced athlete, it might be dangerous for you to do hard physical exercise while you are fasting; your blood sugar level can get so low that you might feel dizziness, nausea, headache, or you might even faint. So we recommend you to prepare your body for physical exercise. Keep scrolling if you can use some easy diet tips on how to do that.

I’m at the final year of medical university, but I already have plenty of experience in the field of preventive medicine. Not only my main job is closely related to the health conscious lifestyle, but I also do volunteer work in this field.My personal opinion is that preventive and lifestyle medicine together with the personalized treatment approach will revolutionize the modern medicine, because preventing the development of a disease is easier and cheaper than curing an advanced condition. So avoiding sickness is a better option for individuals as well as for the society, therefore, it is only matter of time to change our reactive, inefficient healthcare system to a new, proactive one. Until this change happens, pioneers should spread the word about this wonderful transition and prepare their environments for it. My contribution to this cause is to write articles that can guide you through this change, and help you to start a new, happier, health conscious lifestyle.


  1. It is a nice list, but I am always amazed as to why the lie still persists that the yolk, the egg yellow is bad. To eat the egg as a whole is much better. The lies about saturated animal fat still linger on.
