Nutrition: Best to eat before and after exercise

Nutrition experts warn against unprofessional diet regimes

My snacks can be anything from a yogurt to a protein bar but I dont really like those if I am running short on time between clients, he says. But I always try to get something with protein, especially after the workout. Post-workout After a workout, the muscles are repairing, and its important to help that process along by supplying the body not only with carbohydrates, but also with protein, Girard Eberle says. If you can time it so you are eating a well-balanced meal within 30 to 60 minutes after working out, that would be best, she says. If not, go for a snack that has some carbs and some protein. And rehydrate, particularly in the heat. For workouts lasting longer than 90 minutes, she recommends using sports drinks or GU, a sports nutrition gel high in carbohydrates that endurance athletes often use during long-distances rides and runs. Eat smart So what if your main goal is to lose weight and get stronger?

Dr Kaganda said that anyone who is approached by someone selling a regime that doesnt go hand in hand with exercise should have doubts. I was recently approached by a colleague with diet regime but was forced to refuse it because it appeared more like a mechanism to starve myself than one to lose weight, she explained. She said that she saw every possibility of getting other health complications if she had accepted the regime, urging the public to use hospitals and nutrition experts and explain their case. The doctor said that for the moment TFNC has no mandate to stop business minded people from selling the diet regimes without professional ethics and that the Tanzania Food and Drug Authority (TFDA) had the mandate. The centre is currently working on reviewing the law that we had since the early 70s. When the law was passed, we didnt have civil society organisations and non- governmental organisations (NGOs) dealing with nutrition and so coordinating them is very difficult without new legislation, she explained. Until the Sunday News went to press, the TFDA Public Relations Officer, Ms Gaudensia Simwanza who was contacted for comment had not responded to the questions that had been forwarded to her.

Snoring: A New Tip-Off To Stroke and Heart Disease

The researchers looked at the carotid arteries in snorers and found increased thickening of the artery walls, indicating damage already setting in. The researchers suggested that the damage could be due to the trauma and inflammation caused by the vibrations of snoring. However, previous research on the connection between sleep apnea and artery disease has found a reverse connection the arterial damage comes first, lowering the amount of oxygen in the blood, leading to breathing interruptions. It could be that thickening of the arteries is contributing to the snoring as well, not just the other way around.

U health benefits are enviable, even with needed changes

Norquist Says Obama to Take Health Delays, Avoid Shutdown

While no one likes to pay more for medical costs, the Us current generous plan is merely morphing into a somewhat-less-generous plan one that takes steps toward plans private-sector workers typically have. From where most Minnesotans sit, particularly those who buy on the expensive individual market, the Us health plan will remain enviable. Nevertheless, these changes have generated outrage from one of the unions currently in collective bargaining with the U. On Monday, dozens of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees ( AFSCME ) marched through campus and went to U President Eric Kaler s office. If University of Minnesota administrators get their way, they would shift millions in health-insurance costs onto campus workers.

An amendment by Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley who opposes “Obamacare” and abortion requires lawmakers and their personal staff to get private coverage through the same markets that uninsured Americans will use. Last week, the Office of Personnel Management said the government would keep paying its share of premiums for lawmakers and affected staffers who must leave the federal employee health care system by Jan. 1. That eased a major anxiety for several thousand staffers accustomed to getting the same benefits as other federal employees.

Want to fight cancer with your fork? Now, there’s a new…

For two to three hours per day, shoot for 7g/kg. Train more than that and you will need anywhere from 8-10g/kg. You can also do “carbohydrate cycling,” based on the phase of the periodization cycle you’re in. When you are in low-volume periods, the amount of carbohydrates you need will be on the lower end; when you’re in high-volume periods, you’ll need more carbohydrates. Before and during exercise, limit fructose (fruit sugars).Theytake longer to become available sources of energy and may cause gastrointestinal distress.

Americans Who Pay a "Great Deal"/"Fair Amount" of Attention to Nutritional Information, by Key Subgroups, July 2013

The nutrition app contains more than a hundred easy-to-prepare recipes, ranging from nutritious snacks to good-for-you main dishes to delicious desserts. Users can access a list of ingredients, directions on how to prepare the dish, a shopping list to use at the grocery store, nutrition tips, and nutritional analysis information in a standard USDA label format. New recipes are added each month. We developed Ask the Nutritionist: Recipes for Fighting Cancer to encourage and empower cancer patients, and others, to explore and enjoy healthy eating habits, said Steven R. Singer, senior vice president for Communications at Dana-Farber. Studies have long shown that good nutrition is tied to good health, and, for those with cancer, treatment side effects can make eating well a real challenge. In addition to developing the Android version, Dana-Farber has made upgrades to the app to bring easy to operate functionality to users. There is a new search function that allows for faster and more intuitive searching of FAQs, and other topics answered by Dana-Farber nutritionists in the Ask the Nutritionists section.
