Super foods and convenience are two things that make health foods the most valuable nowadays, it seems. I love supporting small scale companies and health movements as much as the next guy as do I love shopping around stores such as Whole Foods, but to be bluntly honest: THIS STUFF IS FRIGGIN’ EXPENSIVE!!!
To combine fast digesting carbohydrates and fats in excess in the same meal. You were thinking something else no? How naughty
A easy rule to follow from Dr. John Berardi is break up your meals into 2 categories.....
We all need a certain amount to build muscle, loss fat and recover from our trainings. Men's Health just published a blog called the '10 best protein sources. They are
1. Whole eggs 2. Wild salmon. 3. Cottage cheese. 4. Beef. 5. Greek yogurt. 6. Sardines. 7. Whey protein. 8. Poultry (chicken, turkey, etc). 9. Nuts. 10. Quinoa.
What is your go to source? Mine is chicken
I hear people complain about not getting the results they desire from the gym. They work out like demons and yet, they don't feel like they are reaping the rewards for all their hard work. This prompts me to ask them "What is your diet like?", and that's usually when I get the "I know, I can eat better" or "It's been good lately" or "I eat good". That's when I become a little more curious and I ask them to walk me through a typical daily meal plan.
Men's Health came up with a list( yeah that is their thing because men have a short attention span) with foods that make you happy, healthy and help you live longer. Thought I would share. Introduce these to your pantry ASAP.
I realize we are all going to eat and drink more than we should this weekend. Me included. We have all earnt some time off this weekend. However do this to help minimize the damage.
1. Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast each morning. This will keep you full for a long time and just hopefully you big out less the rest of the day.
1. Put your fork down when you chew.
Or take a sip of water between each bite—eating slowly can boost levels of two hormones that make you feel fuller. You also will not be tempted to eat to fast and you will enjoy every bite.
2. Training before lunch or dinner.
