Hi everyone. I have four children and have found myself putting on a lot of weight lately. I want to get fit and healthy again (and fit into some of my clothes!!). The youngest is only 1 and it is hard to go for walks or the gym with 4 kids to take care of. My husband does shift work and I am kind of stuck. I love to bake and always make things for the kids and end up eating it too. How can I work a healthier diet and somehow do some exercise with my family and kids in tow? Any suggestions? Has anyone tried exercise DVD’s? I think I’d get really bored with that.
I’m sure you have all tried some kind of diet. If I could design the perfect wieghtloss diet or healthy diet program for you, what would I need to do? Think of what would make you enthusiastic enough to not quit, but look forward to continuing this program on a daily basis for the rest of your life.
Around november of last year, i switched over from a disgusting junk food thriving, soda drinking, chain smoking living habit to a cleaner more exercise and healthy eating habit. Before i switched, i got sick maybe once a year. Ever since i changed things, I’ve caught several colds, and a very mild case of strep. Basically what i’m asking is can a healthier diet put you at risk for sickness or common viruses?
hi i was wondering if anyone had like a healthy diet plan sort of thing. i am not really unhealthy and not overweight, but my diet aint to good! (too many crips and chocolate cravings!) i also feel tired quite a lot (although im doing my gcse’s so it might be that!) which i figured might mean im not healthy enough! so if youve got any usful tips or anything, thanks
Sometimes where our body needs some kind of a nutrient, it expresses this in the form of hunger. Especially with overweight people, they tend to overeat because of a feeling of hunger, it may be that their diet is deficient in some essential nutrient like vitamins, proteins or minerals. And in most cases this worsens the situation where an overweight person decreases the food intake which ends up with even more deficiencies and more appetite.
In the past few years, creatine proteins supplements have been quite popular throughout the world for sports training. They have been known to increase the strength of the trainer. A good nutrition and diet is the part of the training which also depends on the kind of sports a person is engaged in. Some sports require endurance and stamina whereas the others need a lot of strength and power.
A good nutrition is as important for a sport as the training itself. Every sport requires the body to be trained in a special way with respect to exercises and diet. Some sports require endurance and stamina where some require muscle power so the need for the nutrients changes according to the goals of a sports person. With the increase in competition, every millisecond counts, so there has to be an extra edge over the others for good performance, which can be in the form of training and practice which also includes a good diet.
Diet is an important aspect in any kind of sports training. Endurance training requires proper diet and diet schedules for the maximum performance of the athletes where every second counts. With tough competition, intake of sports nutrition becomes essential to get the extra nutrients needed by the body in order to increase its efficiency.
There are a lot of different kinds of sports nutrients available for endurance trainings. They help in increasing lean muscle and building u stamina and endurance. It actually depends on the kind of sports a person engages in. Training for endurance requires a well planned diet which gives all the nutrients without being too heavy on the stomach a digestive system. A diet has to be planned with the type of food, the quantities and the schedules.
Some foods should always be included in the diet of sports persons. They not only keep the body healthy but also fill up the increased demand for nutrients in the body. Some of these foods are given as under.
Whole grain foods are needed as the energy source to the body. Whole grain foods like pasta, breads and cereals are good sources of carbohydrates and they provide the best nutrition for energy needs.
One good source of essential fats and proteins is the peanut butter. Proteins are an important part of an athlete’s diet and protein rich diets should include dairy products and lean meat as well. Proteins help in build up of muscle tissues and power which are important for a good performance.
