Food Faddism


The word "diet" has become almost infamous. With it comes so much expectation and pressure to succeed it is no wonder diets have such a bad reputation. "Quick fix", "Drop weight", "got to lose some before my holiday!" All of these phrases you would usually associate with a short term fad diet. It is important to remember that your diet is simply what you consume on a daily basis. At Total Life Fitness we promote balanced diets which include all the food groups which are most beneficial to you and your lifestyle.

Through practice and personal experience we have found the best and most sustainable results come from a lower carbohydrate diet with more focus on protein to help keep you injury free and lean.

The types of food our body requires in large quantities are called macronutrients.
  • Proteins
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats
Each are broken down by the body and used as energy. The amount of energy they produce is called calories. This is how many calories or kcals are in a single gram of each macronutrient.
  • 1g Protein = 4 kcals
  • 1g Carbohydrate = 4 kcals
  • 1g Fat = 9 kcals
