Most people think they are eating healthy, but truthfully are deficient in most aspects of their diet. If you want to live disease free and perform at the highest levels possible, here are some secrets to help you reach your full health potential.

The Olympic Level Eating 4 Secrets are:

1. Optimize intake of branched chain amino acids (BCAA). BCAA’s Increase muscle growth and anabolic function, and also strengthen the immune system that can be weakened following prolonged periods of exercise.

2. Balance omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid ratios. Reduces tissue inflammation that causes pain common to athletes while promoting healing and muscle recovery.

3. Alkalize the body. Reduces breakdown of muscle and the effect of acidity in joints while stimulating muscle protein synthesis.

4. Increase Nutrients. Nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are necessary for long-term recovery from exercise and for health. The most nutrient-dense foods are vegetables, berries and fish like salmon. On average, vegetables have nearly twice the nutrient density of grains.
