Green Fitness: Diet

Eat healthy foods Whether you're training for a marathon or just trying to shed a few pounds, this week's tips will help you go green while getting fit.

Tip #3: Try a Low-Carbon Diet

Athletes know that a healthy diet improves performance. Green your menu by choosing local and organic foods. Opt for fresh veggies, since frozen foods require more energy for storage. Cut back on over-processed, over-packaged energy bars, which sap resources during manufacturing and transportation. Consider carbon emissions when choosing your source of protein. And track your progress using a food-footprint carbon calculator.
