Nutrition and Self Defense

Spring Family Picnic

March is National Nutrition Month!

What you eat and drink is as an important part of your self defense practice as your blocks and strikes. Good food choices make your body and mind feel better!

Everyone is different. There is no diet plan perfect for everyone. Make sure you listen to your doctor and pediatrician.

1. Be mindful of what you are eating! Try not to eat while you are doing something else. Think about why you are choosing a certain food over others.

2. Read labels! Watch for added sugar and ingredients you don’t recognize.

3. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables! Spend more time on the grocery store perimeter than in the isles.

4. Drink plenty of water!

5. Check out farmers markets, co-ops and other natural food stores!
