Nutrition for Mass

For someone trying to gain lean muscle mass, the correct approach is critical in order that you do not unintentionally gain body fat at the same time. Ingestion of protein is of course vital for anyone wishing to get big, but how much? There is no easy answer to this question as various factors must be taken into consideration. What is your current mass? How often do you train? How much aerobic work do you do? What supplements do you presently take? Do you take amino acids? (What are amino acids)? Do you have a well designed programme for developing mass?
Just taking more protein and increasing your time at the gym will not guarantee that you will get big.

Ramsden Training takes a more scientific approach to mass gain. Proven training methodology and sound nutrition based on your body type will get you results.


Nutrition for Endurance

Running a marathon? Trying out for that triathlon you always wanted to do? Your body requires a different fuel source than the gym rat that single-mindedly wants to “get big”.

Your carbohydrate, fat and protein requirements have to be calculated for pre-season, in-season and post season workouts. There is no magic behind this approach to nutrition for distance athletes, just tried and true practices that will keep the body performing right to the very end when you need it to the most... breaking through the tape!

Ramsden Training athletes are educated in correct eating habits and supplementation.


Weight Loss

Weight loss is a billion-dollar industry. Why? Because fad diets don’t work. They keep you coming back for more...tapes, books, videos, magazines, and nutritional “magic pills”. After spending the money are you sure you lost the kind of weight you wanted to i.e. fat

Or did you lose muscle mass or just plain old H2O?
Can you lose weight whilst keeping muscle mass? Yes
Can you show me how to lose body fat and keep it off? Yes

Supplements

What are supplements? Supplements can take the form of health food, herbals, macro and micronutrients, adaptogens, ergogenic and anabolic compounds etc. Which is right for you? What is you goal, what do you want to achieve, how big is your budget?

Supplements can be very expensive. You might spend hundreds of dollars on supplements for little or no return. If you are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals now, don’t throw good money after bad. Fix the problem and then build on a solid foundation. Most North Americans are deficient in certain minerals absolutely necessary for building muscle; minerals that cost very little and that can be purchased at any health food store. If you can’t synthesise protein due to a mineral deficiency, don’t flush your money down the toilet (literally); let us show you how to get the best bang for your buck.

Digestive disorders

There are many health related problems that can be attributed to improper digestion and elimination of food. Complete digestion is of the utmost importance for staying healthy and to acomplish this with today's enzyme defficient foods is almost impossible. Foods that are processed are enzyme defficient. The way we cook foods destroys the natural enzymes that nature gave us to digest food. Also, the earth is becoming more depleted with each passing year of nutrients.

There has been a major rise in the frequency of auto-immune disorders such as allergies, chronic fatigue, diabetes, heart problems, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, etc. Click here to learn more about digestive enzymes.
