Like to get your exercise over and done with before your body wakes up and realizes what you are doing? Hey been there. But according to Javier Gonzalez Ph. D. you don't need to eat beforehand.
People who skipped breakfast and trained in the morning burned 20% more body fat than when they preceded their training with food.
"After an overnight fast, your blood has a high concentration of fatty acids that can be used for fuel" said Javier Gonzalez Ph. D.
We need to bust myths because of all the noise and confusion of what is good or bad for you. Here are my top 3.
1. Energy drinks are less harmful than soda- A 16-ounce can of Red Bull or Monster delivers as much as 280 calories of pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than you’d find in a 16-ounce cup of Pepsi. Wow.
You might think it has all to do with what you eat. However it has nothing to do will what you eat. The culprit is how you are sleeping.
Research published in the Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology( a fancy term for hormones) and Metabolism found that a lack of sleep can impact your brain in such a way that pushes you towards the pantry, not away from it.
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
You first need to get healthy. Clean up your diet a little. Tell your doctor about those chronic pains you have been suffering. Become more active during the day. If you take care of your body, your body will take care of you.
1. Pay attention to the descriptions- focus on food with descriptions such as steamed, broiled, or grilled. Obviously avoid anything deep fried or covered in sauce.
2. Drink water with your meal- Soda is empty calories. And as you know SUGAR IS THE ENEMY.
3. Hold the extras: be aware of dressings, spreads, cheese, and other condiments that are loaded with fat and calories.
Eat your carbohydrates later in the evening , not first thing in the morning. We have all been told that eating our carbs early in the day because that is when we are most likely to "use" them rather store them. Otherwise called insulin sensitivity.
Please take a couple minutes out your day to read this. Great advice.
