New Lagree Beginning: Spring Clean Your Diet

New Lagree Beginning: Spring Clean Your Diet

By Danielle Rosario

As the weather warms up and the flowers bloom, it’s the perfect time to revitalize your Lagree journey. Spring is in the air—use that new fresh energy to enhance your Lagree Fitness diet. 

While Lagree is known for its intense and effective workout, it’s important to remember that diet plays a crucial role in achieving your fitness goals.

Let’s explore the importance of nutrition in your Lagree journey, and we’ll even drop some tips on how to spring-clean your diet for optimal results.

Spring Awakening: Energizing Your Lagree Routine

As with most things in life, it’s usually better to go with the innate flow. Avoid resistance to what comes naturally to you. Don’t fight inevitable change. Just the same, you’ll benefit from embracing the seasonal shift. A change in season means it’s time to adapt your workout.

Spring just might be one of my favorites when it comes to refreshing my workout routine. Do yourself a favor and harness the power of spring for fitness. Usually, it’s not too hot nor too cold—making it the perfect time to add outdoor activities to enhance your Lagree workout. If you like to get your Lagree in before work, opt for a walk or other activity you enjoy later on in the day. Adding in a variety of activities and keeping your body in motion only enhances your regular workout routine.

No matter how amazing a workout is or how much we love it, after a certain time, we can become bored. This doesn’t mean it’s time to quit and find something new. Rather, think of it as an opportunity to renew your commitment to Lagree. Are you challenging yourself? Maybe it’s time to up your resistance. Reassess and set fresh goals to stay motivated.

Lagree Nutrition: The Fuel for Your Fire

Just like a car needs fuel to run, your body needs proper nutrition to perform at its best. Eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of whole foods will provide your body with the necessary nutrients to power through your Lagree workouts.

You want to power up with macronutrients. These are the essential nutrients that your body requires in larger quantities to function optimally. They give you energy and play crucial roles in maintaining your body’s structure and functions. The three main macronutrients are protein, carbohydrates, and fat. 

Protein: your body’s building blocks—Protein plays a vital role in muscle growth and recovery after an intense workout like Lagree. Eggs, chicken, fish, tofu, and dairy are all good options.

Carbohydrates: the springboard for energy—Carbohydrates are the main fuel for your workout. Think grains, fruits, beans, and starchy vegetables. A couple of my yummy favorites are butternut squash and sweet potatoes. 

Fats: sustained power—Healthy fats are vital for a balanced diet. Avocados, nuts, and seeds are great sources of healthy fats. 

Some of these main macronutrients will fall into the category of superfoods, which are uber-nutrient-dense foods that provide a wide range of health benefits. Try adding berries, leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish to your Lagree Fitness diet.

Hydration Haven: Nourishing Your Lagree Journey

Well, we can’t forget the importance of nutrition without talking about our wonderful friend—H2O. Prioritize hydration, especially before and after your Lagree workout, and quench your thirst for success. Eight glasses per day is the recommended minimum, and if you’re working out—which we know you are—then you should aim to consume even more water.

Want a fun springtime hydration hack? Try infusing water with fruits and herbs. This works wonders for those who don’t love water on its own. 

Timing is Everything: Mastering Nutrient Timing

  • Pre-workout prep—Not only is what you feed your body important, but when you do also matters. In order to optimize your workout and energize your performance, make sure you you choose light, easy digestible meals. You don’t want to eat a huge meal and then try and do a high-intensity workout. You also don’t want to try do it on an empty stomach. 
  • Post-workout replenishment—After you crush your workout, your body needs to restore and recover. Try to eat within half an hour after you exercise if possible, and if not, as soon as you can. Go for those proteins, carbs, and healthy fats.

Spring Cleaning Your Diet: A Fresh Start

Let’s take a look at the process when it comes to spring cleaning your diet:

  1. Start with assessing your nutritional landscape: Evaluate your current eating habits. What isn’t serving you? Where could you improve?
  2. Next is setting the stage for spring success: Clean out the pantry and remove processed foods. Restock the fridge with fresh produce. Load up on seasonal fruits and veggies.
  3. Then, focus on a couple of practical tips for a diet refresh: Meal prep and mindful eating!

Mindful Munching: Cultivating Awareness in Eating

Let’s dive deeper into mindful eating. Slow down and savor each bite. In our society today, everything is so fast-paced and we’re always rushing from place to place, task to task, etc. Focus on avoiding rushing at least when it comes to your meals. If you eat to fast, you’re more likely to overeat as well. 

Navigating Hunger vs. Cravings

Learn to distinguish if you’re truly hungry or if your mind is sending you an emotional craving. When hunger does strike, choose nourishing options. 

Tuning into Your Body's Wisdom

When you learn to apply mindfulness to your eating habits, you become attuned to what your body needs. Listen to it and adjust your diet accordingly. 

Supplemental Support: Enhancing Your Lagree Diet

Let’s be honest—it’s a challenge to get hit the perfect Lagree nutrition every single day with the foods we choose. But here are a few tips to get around that:

  • Unlock the potential of supplements—Explore options like BCAAs and collagen. As always, make sure to check in with your doctor or a professional before adding anything to your regular diet.
  • Recommended supplements to supercharge your Lagree diet—Omega3s are great for joint health and vitamin D for overall wellbeing. 
  • Seek professional guidance and consult with experts—Registered dietitians and trainers can provide personalized advice. Remember, the best diet for you is going to depend on other factors such as age, weight, activity levels, and personal goals. 

Spring Motivation: Blooming Your Lagree Potential

Spring cleaning your Lagree diet might be a major change. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Make sure to celebrate milestones—from small wins to big victories. Acknowledge your progress on your journey and set achievable goals.

Another reminder we all need from time to time is to embrace the joy in movement. You don’t want it to always seem like hard work. While the workout is challenging, you can still find the fun in there.

Last but not least, connect with the Lagree community and find support in your Lagree family. Make a connection with the person on the Megaformer next to you. Sharing experiences and encouragement is vital for your long-term success. 

Lagree and Diet—The Keys to Your Spring Clean Success
