It is another Sunday post and I try to help my readers that may be struggling with a few extra pounds…..there are more diets, miracle diets, than hairs on your butt……some make it all so extremely complicated…..and it need not be…..
Caloric intake could be the key to living longer, something we all wish to do, right?
Research has shown that sharp reductions in the amount of food consumed can help fish, rats and monkeys live longer. But there have been very few studies in humans.
Now, some researchers have found that when people severely cut calories, they can slow their metabolism and possibly the aging process.
Clinical physiologist Leanne Redman, who headed the study at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, says the first challenge was finding people willing to take part. After all, they would have to cut their typical plate for breakfast, lunch and dinner by up to 25 percent.
How about all those sports drinks? Hell, they even have hard sparkling water….flavored….anyway instead of wasting money on those ever faddy sports drinks….try a banana…..
A banana might reasonably replace sports drinks for those of us who rely on carbohydrates to fuel exercise and speed recovery, according to a new study comparing the cellular effects of carbohydrates consumed during sports.
It found that a banana, with its all-natural package, provides comparable or greater anti-inflammatory and other benefits for athletes than sports drinks. But there may be a downside, and it involves bloating.
For decades, athletes and their advisers have believed, and studies have confirmed, that eating or drinking carbohydrates during prolonged exertion can enable someone to continue for longer or at higher intensities and recover more quickly afterward than if he or she does not eat during the workout.
There you are….the old Professor’s nutritional info for the week….go now and enjoy the rest of your Sunday…..spoil yourself eat some cheese cake….chuq
