Your Diet Dictates Your Recovery Time

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

If you’re not recovering from an injury as fast as you’d like, consider what’s in your diet and how that is impacting your recovery time.

Nutrition is such a vital part of your everyday life. Eating the wrong foods, having the wrong proportions, or even lack of eating can play a crucial part in how you feel.

There are certain foods that are pro-inflammatory, meaning that when eaten, they tend to increase the amount of inflammation within your body. These food groups include refined sugars, refined grains, flour products, trans fat, and refined omega-6 oils such as corn, sunflower, peanut oil, etc.

On the other hand, there are anti-inflammatory foods that decrease the number of inflammatory factors in your body. These include meat, wild-caught fish and seafood, omega-3 eggs, cheese, vegetables, fruit, nuts, spices, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, and coffee/tea.

The effects of inflammation can include depression, fatigue, lethargy, irritability, emotional lability, social withdrawal, and lack of concentration. It's incredible how a change in someone's diet can greatly change their life!
