“Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand” – Youssef Khaled, a qualified nutritionist talking about the right food for a fit & healthy body

There is a surprising amount of misinformation and a lack of awareness about health, wellbeing, and fitness amongst the public. The word fitness is often portrayed as regular exercise, which, in reality, only contributes to a 20% role in overall fitness at most. Exercise is strongly recommended to stay fit but what’s equally, if not more important, is nutrition. Hence the phrase “you are what you eat” is indeed true.

The pandemic has resulted in heightened stress levels, thereby taking a toll on our physical as well as mental health. To get our health and body back on track, some of us tend to go on an extreme fad or crash diets that end up being counterproductive. One needs to understand the science and facts behind food and nutrition to achieve their fitness goals. That said, here is one of the best nutritionists, Youssef Khaled who can guide you on the right path leading to the pinnacle of good health and fitness. A strong believer in eating healthy to stay fit, he is certain that the right kind of motivation can help individuals work wonders in their lives.

Born and brought up in Australia, he can help you reach your fitness goals through a combination of nutrition and personal training. Eating right and creating a tailored, targeted, and personalized fitness program is the best way to get in shape. Train with the best!

A non-believer of stringent nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love, he encourages the use of food as medicine with a holistic approach. Apart from helping clients achieve general diet and fitness goals, Youssef is a Personal Trainer, holds a Bachelor’s degree in human physiology & anatomy, and a certificate in sports nutrition, Australia.

His business, YK nutrition which is based on five basic pillars of health – effective training, sustainable nutrition, ample hydration, adequate rest, and holistic wellness – offers unique programs along with personalized nutrition coaching where you learn to outgrow unhealthy eating patterns and begin to rebuild your relationship to food. It is a holistic health and fitness business that helps individuals make lifelong sustainable changes to their health and body composition by providing individualized nutrition and training plans, built around the individual’s lifestyle.

“What are the right foods? Minimally processed foods are the best for sports and weight-lifting nutrition. Lean protein, complex carbs, and fibre are your best friends, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. Your body needs lean protein such as turkey, nonfat Greek yogurt, fish, and egg whites to build muscle and stay full,” shares Youssef.

He continues, “fitness and nutrition go hand in hand. Nutrition with personal training is perhaps the best way to get into shape. Understanding what you need to eat and how much to eat is a great start to reaching your goals. From there, balancing your nutrition with the right intake of protein, fat, and carbohydrates will help you reach Excellence In Fitness.

Moreover,  protein and carbs are the go-to resources for weightlifting and serious athletes of all sports. Remember that what you put into your body builds your body. If you eat heavily processed foods, you won’t be able to build that lean, muscular look you’re going for.”

A fairly young professional in the industry, Youssef knows how to customize diets for different age groups. He focuses on the whole person and picture (lifestyle, nutrition, training, sleep, stress) which enables him to create plans that allow Individuals to develop sustainability and adherence and give them their personal power back by developing their confidence and knowledge around nutrition and training, in turn giving them the results they’re after.
