Carbohydrates supply energy. Healthy fats supply energy too, as well as helping produce important hormones for your body. Proteins are used to repair damaged tissues and help grow new ones. A well balanced diet should include all three macronutrients from healthy, clean food sources; as we get older, the food we eat play an important role in how our body functions, not only when we sweat, but in all facets of our life.
Chef Mareya Ibrahim is known as the 'Fit Foodie' and wrote the book, 'Eat Like You Give A Fork' to help people learn how a healthy diet supports an active lifestyle.

Get ready for a fun and lively conversation on how to achieve better fitness through food.
