The Super Powers of Broccoli

In 2011 I started to post few tips and ideas that you could do at home on the regular basis to improve your quality of life and achieve greater fitness results. I spoke about the importance of the basic elements of nutrition like water and fruits for example and explained the importance of those things in our overall health.

This year I will continue to explain the basics of nutrition and which foods are essential in order to achieve optimum results in sports performance, fat loss and disease prevention and cure. I want to share with you the lessons that I’ve learned about foods and explain why and how to get yourself in shape and in control of your health. I hope you have all seen my video on this website and understand that I had challenges with my weight when I was younger and how I ended up becoming nutritionist. As a young teen I faced one of the hardest times of my life trying to lose my belly fat and gain muscle.

I definitely understand what it takes to get fit and healthy, and that’s what I want to share with you in this blog. In every post I will give you an explanation of one food or more and describe the benefits and nutritional value of each of of them. My first tip to you today is going to be:
