Written by: Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has declared March 2016 as the National Nutrition Month for United States. While nutrition is never a topic that is out of discussions, this sudden spurt of interest in nutrition points to the fact that the medical academia is becoming conscious of the need to popularize the crucial link between food, fitness and health. These three golden words which will catch your attention in the homepage of the academy tell you that to reach the goal of health, you have to take not just food but also fitness seriously. Martial arts, in this context, can be the convergence point which can bring health, fitness and diet together.
Martial Arts and Fitness: A Thought for the Nutrition Month
The role of nutrition in the different aspects of your life is undeniable. From growth and mental development in children to disease prevention and immunity in adults, nutrition is your entry point to doing anything: whether it is work, sports, studies or life at large.
You achieve the right nutritional optimum when you consume proteins, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrate and fat in a level of balanced equilibrium. It is worthy to think that whether this becomes possible in your day-to-day life when you often have to eat out, and junk food, for that matter. Martial arts can make a difference to you if this is your problem. It will burn off and redistribute the fat in your body by energizing the body and activating hormonal glands. It also helps to burn off the calories you accumulate from carbohydrates. These two elements which are most prone to be imbalanced in your body can be regulated through martial arts training.
Secondly, martial art is also a way of life. It is not similar to the one-hour workout that you force yourself to attend. At a good martial arts school, the instructors will give you a healthy eating chart. Most often this includes positive and healthy eating habits and tips. Artificial supplements which seem to be a favorite of workout trainers and dieticians are not often advised. The traditional schema of each martial art, which prescribes a healthy, natural and non-flamboyant lifestyle, has a role in this.
Together, the dietary values and fitness techniques in martial arts can help you to achieve the nutrition equilibrium for a healthy life. It can also be your guide towards strength building and toning your body. In short, martial arts, combined with a good diet, is your quick and effective route to health and fitness.
