I have been asked by many of you how I’m prepping my body in case I get the virus. Honestly though, it’s more about just sticking with your healthy habits. I’m sharing my diet, supplement routine, and why I’m taking it easy on my workouts.
My own personal history prepared me in the best way for this pandemic. After dealing with extreme inflammation several years ago, I made huge dietary changes that I have maintained since. I eat a very anti-inflammatory diet which is what we all need right now.
My supplement routine hasn’t changed much either. With increased time inside, I have upped the amount of vitamin D that I take and I’ve added in quercetin, but other than that I’m taking my regular supplement regimen. Listen in as I share exactly what that is.
Scientists have now found that the virus thrives in bodies that are already high in inflammation. Take every precaution to remove inflammation. Don’t drink alcohol, remove sugars, stop buying processed pastas and breads. Try to eat as healthfully as possible during this time.
Also, don’t make it a point to kill yourself in your workouts. It’s important to keep moving but now is not the time to be maxing out every single day. All that will do is break you down when you need to be at your peak.
For me personally, not much has changed with regard to my diet, exercise, or supplements, but if you haven’t already started on an anti-inflammatory meal plan, now is the time.
