When it comes to getting into shape, it’s not enough that you focus on exercising and removing toxins from your body. It’s just as important to focus on what you put in your body. “Nutrition is the basis for a healthy lifestyle,” says Olga Barreal, Los Cab’s in-house nutritionist. “I’d say it’s 80 percent nutrition and 20 percent exercise.
If you don’t have proper nutrition, even if you exercise a lot you’re not going to get the results you expect.” However, Barreal cautions that one diet is not right for everyone. Proper nutrition depends on a person’s age, activity level, health, weight, and personal goals. Your workout regimen plays a role.
