Position Stand #5 – Practical Considerations for Supplement Use in Sport

Post of the week By Andreas Pappas greek_spartan

People will say tracking and weighing your food is obsessive, I can't do it, I'm lazy etc.
Or they'll say they don't have time or it takes up to much of their time.
If that's the case, ask yourself then how important are your goals to you?
The true reality is if you never counted, weighed, or measured your food you'll never really know how much you eating.
And you'll never go through a very important fundamental learning process.
Unfortunately some things require a little sacrifice, as is with anything in life.
Tracking foods is a process that does take time & patience to eventually master.
But once you've learnt the art of mastering it, it becomes a breeze in the park.
Yes, tracking macros/calories has its place & at certain times requires accuracy & some form discipline depending on the goal at stake.
But this isn't to say you have to be a slave to numbers, formulas & track every single gram of food for the rest of your life.
Some people love to track for life being meticulous, some like set meal plans, some eat mindfully & intuitively & that's all fine as long as it suites & works for you & your goals.
But one things for sure is that tracking foods is a vital starting point in educating yourself about foods and creating food awareness, seeing it more as a long term Investment that yields the highest return.
It teaches you portion control & gives you the opportunity to eat the foods you enjoy without feeling guilty & from deviating off your plan while still making progress.
Even just by tracking for a couple weeks, you already start to train yourself about food values & how much food you should be actually eating for your goals.
Spending a good portion of time tracking has taught many to also unconsciously & mindfully eat for their goals & life, listening more & more to their biofeedback steering away from the calorie/macro obsession.
Years of tracking has given me the freedom to eat this way, not obsessing so much about numbers & formulas anymore.

Rocco Venizelos - Bros Do Science
Rocco Venizelos

My name is Rocco Venizelos and I am currently working in the field of Health and Fitness as a coach, health and fitness advisor and personal trainer. I am also studying at The Anglo-European College of Chiropractic.

My experience the past 15 years in the fitness industry both as an athlete and as Personal Trainer helped me recognize the need to understand in depth the science underpinning all aspects of human performance, to strive for evidence based and theoretical well grounded practices, to validate the importance of keeping yourself up to date of the latest developments and findings in the field. But the most important is to be able to make the science accessible and transferable to coaches, athletes and practitioners.

One of my major concerns is translating knowledge into working practice. This is what I aim to do through with this website.. with the precious help of my Bros!
