Superfoods for Peak Workout Performance and Fat Burning 1

What are Superfoods?

Well they are special secret foods that give you superhuman strength, awesome abs, a beautiful body and the ability to find a parking space at will.

Ok, not really 🙂

They are foods which simply provide your body with the best range of nutrients for maximum performance.

So here’s the first food you should eat more of.

Flax seeds. I recommend this for all my fighters especially when they are cutting weight. I have them in powdered form in my porridge in the morning and my yoghurt in the afternoon. I was surprised to find they taste really nice and I prefer them in my meals now.

They area great source, of omega 3, fibre (very important when you’re on a strict cutting diet for fighting), iron and protein. Not to mention lignans which are high in anti oxidants.

I gave one of my fighters a diet sheet for just before christmas and he’s come down from 103 kgs to 96kg.  He’ll be under 90Kg on fight day in march easily. He’s probably eating the same amount of food he was before but it’s the right stuff. The flax seeds are an integral part of this.

It’s not about eating less food and denying yourself but about eating enough of the right foods. I probably eat more food now than ever before because my body is like a furnace burning energy. But I’m walking around at 52 kgs more ripped than ever before as well.

Adding in flax seeds is a cheap easy way to start some postive change in your diet straight away. There’s a lot more benefits to them but you have google for that 🙂

I used to eat a lot less smart. I remember Dermot coming in one day and stopping in shock. “Catherine, do you know you have an apple in your hand?”

Almost as funny as when I couldn’t find the iron. “Do you remember where you left it last year?”

The apple made a nice dent in his head, shame the iron missed…
