Sometimes when exercising to keep your body in shame or achieve a certain level of fitness the urge to eat is unstoppable which is ok but the mistake many people make is to eat imbalanced diet.
In a recent interview a nutritionist from Victoria University Kampala faculty of health sciences Rebecca Suubi advised that Ugandans need to plan for what they will eat in order to balance their diet.
Suubi’s submission fits well with people who work out as they tend to use nutrients stored in their bodies rapidly. And one of the most needed nutrients is proteins which fortunately is commonly available in markets and grocery stores.
“Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. You need protein in your diet to help your body repair cells and make new ones.” says a gym instructor at The City Gym health facility at Kampala Boulevard building on Kampala Road.
The City Gym, easily accessible in the heart of Kampala, offers a range of services including a gym fitted with state of the art equipment, sauna, massage parlor, zumba and dance classes, a fruit bar and others.
If you remember your primary school science lesson, then you are aware that you can get proteins from foods like beans, greens, milk, yams, fruits, white meat among others.
