PNOE Nutrition

Nutrition is the biggest missed opportunity for every health and wellness business.

Most health practices have tried introducing nutrition planning and failed. That’s because it requires hiring dietitians, buying new software, and keeping clients engaged. We built the package that solves these problems and makes nutrition planning the most lucrative part of your practice.

Nutrient timing, also known as peri-workout nutrition, is defined as the consumption of nutrients pre-, during, and post-exercise. The primary goal of peri-workout nutrition is to provide nutritional support to allow the athlete to stay injury-free while maximizing performance as well as the functional and metabolic adaptations to their exercise program. Thus, the strategic consumption of energy in the form of carbohydrates, protein and/or fats, fluids, and micronutrients in the hours before, during, and after exercise, can maximize muscle repair, improve body composition, optimize performance, and enhance muscular-related adaptations, such as strength and hypertrophy.

Nutrient needs and the practical strategies for meeting them pre-, during, and post-exercise depend on various factors, including the exercise per se (mode, intensity, duration), the environment, carryover effects from previous activity, appetite, and individual preferences.

Strategies implemented in pre-, during, and post-exercise periods should address various nutrition-related factors that can cause fatigue and deterioration in performance outputs (e.g., power, strength, agility, skill, and concentration). These factors include dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, glycogen depletion, hypoglycemia, and gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort.

Overall, nutrient timing when it comes to a workout, let alone a competition or event, can influence performance, recovery, training stimuli, and adaptations to exercise.

Weight Loss and the Second Law of Thermodynamics

The most vital principle for successful weight loss is a negative energy balance, meaning an adequate calorie deficit.

Therefore, energy intake must be consistently lower than energy expenditure.

In other words, irrespective of the specific dietary approach that may be implemented, the effectiveness of any fat loss program is ultimately dictated by how efficiently this balance will be shifted in the right direction.

This principle is known as the calories in/calories out (CICO) rule

Whereas the ’calories in’ component is an easy concept since it simply refers to the calories that a person consumes through their diet, and the ‘’calories out’’ component is governed by a bunch of different factors.
