You Can’t Out-Train a Bad Diet



health1_2017If there’s one thing I’ve learned from years of helping people reach their fitness goals it’s that no one plans to fail, but too many of us fail to plan. This is especially true for nutrition. No matter what your age or level of athletic activity, how you eat is as important as how you exercise.

Our understanding of nutrition has changed over the past decade. The groundbreaking work of Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, has helped us understand the implications of the type of calories we consume. And while there is a glut of diets, each with different formulas for success, there are certain basic facts to keep in mind about how to eat.

We need a daily supply of the energy nutrients carbohydrates, fats, proteins along with vitamins, minerals, and water. It is always best to get these nutrients by eating food that is fresh and as close to its natural form as possible. While it is simplistic to label foods as good or bad, there are better and worse times to consume certain nutrients.

Carbohydrates have become the dietary boogeyman that fats used to be a few years back. But they are still our body’s primary source of fuel. Eating whole grains and plenty of vegetables provides necessary energy without the health risks and weight problems associated with eating refined products, juices, and sweets.

health2_2017Choose whole grains rich in fiber (think dark instead of white) to slow down the absorption of sugar. Bright colored vegetables and fruits contain more nutrients than their lighter-colored counterparts. Making these choices, along with eating good fats and proteins, helps eliminate food cravings and binging.

Fat plays other roles in addition to providing energy. The fat found in plants and cold-water fish, as opposed to the fat in animal products, maintains cell membranes, helps the immune system function, and can lower cholesterol and heart disease risks. Be sure to include extra virgin olive oil, raw nuts, seeds, and avocados as a regular part of your diet.

Include some protein in every meal. Protein often comes with too much of the “bad” animal fat associated with heart disease and certain types of cancer. Good sources of lean protein include poultry, fish, soy, low-fat dairy, raw nuts, seeds, and beans with rice.

health3_2017Our body uses protein to build and repair all of its tissues, and proteins are involved in billions of chemical reactions that occur in our body every second. Muscle is made of protein and one of the reasons to build muscle is that it burns more calories while your body is at rest.

But even with this simple approach to nutrition, many people feel too busy or intimidated to prepare simple, healthy meals at home. Too many of us sacrifice health and wellness at the altar of convenience.

Eating healthy and tasty meals at home or away can be accomplished relatively simply with a little planning. Keeping the proper staples on hand is the key to the easy preparation of healthy and delicious meals. Try these simple tips for shopping and food preparation:

  • Spend the majority of your shopping time and grocery budget on the perimeters of the store. Here you can find fresh, whole foods such as vegetables, fruit, fish, poultry, lean meat, and yogurt.
  • Keep an adequate supply of the following: onion, garlic, shallots, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, millet, and barley), herbs and spices, natural low-sodium chicken broth, Dijon mustard, canned beans, raw nuts, and seeds.
  • Read labels to check sodium content and choose low-sodium options. If you don’t recognize an ingredient on a label, choose another item.
  • Prepare some base dishes from which you can build delicious meals by cooking whole grains and oven-roasted vegetables in advance. Grains can be reheated and placed atop greens or mixed with vegetables as a base rich in nutrients.
  • Add lean protein by using previously cooked chicken or turkey breast, canned tuna or salmon, tofu, hard-boiled eggs, or lightly toasted raw nuts and seeds.
  • Keep a bottle of balsamic vinaigrette made with extra virgin olive oil in your refrigerator and pour on a tablespoon to add flavor as well as good fat.
  • Use raw nuts and seeds, fruit, cheese, and cultured yogurt as snacks or dessert.
health4_2017Remember, achieving fitness is all about stimulus and response. What you put into your body after working out is as important as how you train. For the next installment I will describe our approach to personal training.

A little over a century ago, in 1914, the Kew Observatory in Great Britain granted a Class A chronometer certificate to a wristwatch for the very first time. This replica watches was a major achievement for the timepiece in question, a tiny Rolex watch, and it also marked the advent of the modern precision wristwatch. In this article excerpted from my omega replica blog, Watch Insider, I explore the full story behind this watch-world milestone, and trace the evolution of the Rolex Oyster watches that resulted from it, with photos of all the major Rolex Oyster models rolex replica from 1926 through 2014. Until July 15, 1914, the Class A certification, which attested to the highest chronometric precision, replica breitling had generally been awarded only to large marine chronometers after extremely rigorous tests. Rolex was, in fact, the first to prove that a wristwatch could be just as precise as a marine chronometer - a notion that was scarcely believable at the time.

I hear that diet can be harmful, if a person visits a gym. Exercising takes much time and burns fat. With a diet, a person will be worn out and all the necessary vitamins won't be helpful. All the fats that are needed for everyday life will be burnt. Health is important, notwithstanding the fact that students buy term papers cheap all the time without learning anything about health facts.
