I was discussing the benefits of increasing the amount & number of vegetables in the diet with numerous people over the last few days & I came across this slide from one of my lectures.
Health = Nutrients / Calories
Nutrient density means that nutrients & other beneficial substances in food have not been diluted by the addition of calories from solid fats, added sugars or refined starches, sodium or removal of dietary fibre.
In essence the nutrient density of leafy green vegetables would be much higher than a glass of sweetened fruit juice or cereals.
Food that gives you more bang for your buck and provides the essentials that your gut bacteria need. If your bacteria are happy, then you will be too!
Over 80% of the diet should be comprised of whole plant 🌱 foods that naturally contain health -promoting phytochemicals.
This change should occur over a period of time & not overnight in order to incorporate simple changes that become habits as otherwise doing too much too soon can cause a rebound effect back to old habits.
Advice for the Christmas 🎄 period - when entertaining, provide some healthy options like fruit salads or vegetable dips with cashew nut cream cheese or hummus.
Also if there is no sweets treats or chocolate in the house, then it can’t be eaten!
The more you can do now to maintain healthy habits, the less that’ll need to change come the new year.
I will post some dip recipes over the next couple of days.
In an attempt to help you forget that #vitaminwater is a) owned by Coca-Cola and b) its a ruse to get you to drink a form of sugar more processed than high-fructose corn syrup, theyre getting everyone giddy imagining that they could *really* live without a smartphone for a year. I'd prefer to see millions of people going without single-use packaged sweetened drinks for a year instead. That would be much more life changing. #drinkwater#digitalnutrition not #digitaldetox Repost @vitaminwater
So many skills in Lombok. This village specialises in making fabrics from cotton thread that is dyed with natural colours from the nature. One big fabric can take up to one month to make and the results are just beautiful! Would you like to have products made from these fabrics?💚
H2O: just add water😂 or why drinking water is important.
1. If you want clear skin, water is essential👸🏻 “With dehydration, the skin becomes more vulnerable to skin disorders and premature wrinkling”. Many people ask me how I maintain clear skin — hydration is one of the answers.
2. Water regulates your body temperature🥶 “Your body loses water through sweat ... your sweat keeps your body cool, but your temperature will rise if you don’t replenish the water you lose”.
3. It helps you stay focused👀 Dehydration creates “an imbalance in the homeostatic function of the internal environment, [which] can adversely affect cognitive performance.” Improper hydration can negatively impact your ability to concentrate and short-term memory.
4. Water is also slightly in control of your mood🤪, since not drinking the needed amount of it can result in fatigue.
5. Severe dehydration can lead to “swelling in the brain [and] kidney failure”⚠️ Some DON’Ts
1. Don’t drink water more than you should 💦 “A large intake of water over a short period overwhelms your kidneys so they can’t process and eliminate the water fast enough, which drives your blood levels of sodium too low.”
2. Don’t drink during the meals 🥘 “If you start drinking water [while you eat], you are [hindering] the digestive juices ... from breaking down food”.
My first post will be about thing that we cannot live without. It’s water💧 Our bodies are about 60 % of water, so all of us should stay hydrated. Also water can help you to lose weight and clean your body. You need to calculate your daily amount of water: weight ( in kilograms ) x 31 (for women)/ 35 (for men). Remember:
🔹you mustn’t drink all your water in two hours; you need to drink it gradually 🔸the best way to star your day is to drink 2 cups of water before breakfast; it will wake up your body 🔹don’t drink water while eating; drink at 30 min before/after your meal. I hope that my post was useful)
Water 💧 did you know that you can confuse thirst for hunger? YEP! This crisscross in signal interpretation often leads to snacking and unnecessary food consumption. Personally, I have found this happens when I eat things with too much salt or sugar in them, which also end up not being very nutrient dense (chips and vegan queso, calamari with all the sauces, or gluten-free cookies for example, all of which I might have had yesterday 🤷🏼♀️). We kick-start this pleasure center in our brain that’s associated with foods like sugar and we continue to want to eat those things (the cookie thing started two days ago). • In my experience, when I’ve been snacking more and start feeling thirsty, my brain circumvents that need and jumps to “I’m uncomfortable, eat more of that feel-good food” when it’s not actually what I NEED. On the flip side, when I’m eating lots of nutrient-dense un-processed foods and cooking at home (the calamari was at a restaurant), the experience of hunger verses thirst is crystal clear and I eat with more intentionality. • The moral of the story: our bodies were designed to know what we need, and can better tell us what we need if we give it what it needs. 🤯 What does your body need today? •• #nutrition#intuition#body#bodyintuition#bodiesbydesign#wewerecreated#food#water#findwhatfeelsgood#foodishealing#hydrate#nourishment#payattention#getwhatyouneed#drinkwater#health#healthyeating#snacking#habits#choices#intentionality#information#personalexperience
Ziemā ir daudz grūtāk piespiest sevi dzert ūdeni nekā vasarā 😗 Un mēs to, protams, saprotam. Kuram gan gribas dzert ūdeni, kad ir karstā šokolāde, ķirbju latte, karstvīns un dažādi citi sildošie dzērieni. 🎄🍷 ⠀
Diemžēl, daudzos aspektos tie zaudē ūdeni un nepilda nepieciešamas funkcijas - piemēram, organisma detoksikācija un attīrīšana no sārņiem. Vēl vairāk, šie dzērieni izraisa atūdeņošanos! ⠀
Ja vēsā ūdens glāze Jūs ne pavisam nepiesaista, iedzeriet siltu ūdeni ( kas nav vārīts ) ar ingvēru vai rozmarīna zariņu... 💚⠀ ⠀
Visus kaloriju bagātos dzērienus aizvietojiet ar ūdeni un 9 dienu laikā Jūs nometīsiet 450 gramus svara! Rezultāts būs tāds pats kā no ikdienas 30 minūšu skrējieniem.🏃🏼♀️🏃🏻♂️
Sams just finishing off the pullups here, but this is a great circuit we just put ourselves through on this fine Wednesday morning!
Its the 300 Workout, details are in the comments
Quick, run to the store for that present you forgot! Hurry home to bake the cookies! Did you remember to pick up the package from the post office yet??
Finally, a chance to sit down... might as well grab your favorite comfort food. If you feel like ripping your hair out yet, you’re not alone.
When stress adds up, junk food is something a lot of people fall back on at the end of the day. We want to help you find different ways to deal with the holiday craziness so that you can stay on track! Read on...
Start with learning to tell the difference between when your body is hungry, and when you’re craving foods due to stress.
How long ago did you have your last meal or snack? If it was a few hours ago, you might be hungry, but if it was within the last hour or so, chances are you’re probably eating for a different reason.
If this becomes a common occurrence, start with drinking more water.
Hydrating consistently throughout your day can allow you to go an appropriate amount of time before your body physically feels hungry. Good hydration also helps your brain function more properly, helps digest food, and clears out toxins in the process.
Next, find another way to deal with the stress! Do you have any hobbies that may have fallen by the wayside? What about that guitar you haven’t picked up since 2015?
If that doesn’t sound familiar, what’s something you would like to start learning how to do? Take a chance and try it out when you feel like grabbing the chips and cookies.
We aren’t saying to completely cut out all of the junk food in your life. But it can be easy for it to build up into a habit over time. Let yourself have something once in a while, and then get back on track the next time you feel overwhelmed!
W E L L N E S S
W E D N E S D A Y: DRINK WATER I SAY. WHY do I say this? Well, for so many reasons to list, but mostly because you need it to survive and to flush your body out of all the nasty toxins that accumulate from DAILY LIVING. As a certified 2B Mindset Nutrition mentor, my recommendation to EVERYONE is to drink at LEAST half your body weight in ounces a day. AND , if you are looking to lose weight, numerous studies have shown a significantly higher weight loss and maintenance in people who drink at least 16 ounces before every meal! .
SERIOUSLY, think about all that water filling you up before you even take a bite of food. PLUS, you might not even really be HUNGRY it might just be THIRST that you are feeling at 2 pm every day 😉 So, grab your bottle, fill it up, drink 16 ounces 5-20 minutes before each meal, and keep track of your intake. (and stay close to a bathroom)
Before long you will be a super duper water guzzler like me for sure! DRINK UP FRIENDS!
Beber menos de 1,5 L de água por dia pode prejudicar o funcionamento dos rins, e levar à insuficiência renal aguda ou crônica, por exemplo, já que a falta de água reduz a quantidade de sangue no organismo e, por isso, interfere na quantidade de oxigênio que o rim recebe, provocando lesões em suas células e diminuição da função.
Além disso, beber pouca água aumenta as chances de desenvolver pedras nos rins e aumenta o risco de desenvolver infecções urinárias porque as toxinas, como ureia, concentram-se no organismo e as bactérias se podem desenvolver facilmente.
Então, e principalmente neste calor, beba muita água!
