Micronutrients are a must for fat loss.
How many of you actually get a wide variety of different veggies and fruits?! When it comes to building muscle and burning fat most people are focused on macronutrients while micros often get overlooked. There's no doubt that macronutrients are most important, but micronutrients play irreplaceable roles in your body's ability to utilize protein, carbs, and fats. As an example, B vitamins and certain minerals are required for your body to turn carbs into energy which is important for fueling your workouts. Also, vitamin C is needed to produce a hormone called epinephrine which your body uses to release fatty acids from fat tissue.. WHICH MEANS FAT LOSS. These are just a couple of the roles micronutrient play when it comes to maximizing your results. When I go to the grocery store I like to buy an abundance of colored veggies. A few of my favorites are brussels, carrots, yellow squash, spinch, and kale.
My favorite way to cook them is preheating the oven to 450 degrees, spreading them out on a cooking tray, drizzle with olive or walnut oil, salt, pepper, and cook them for 45 minutes. This is also the simplest and easiest way to prep and clean up!
