I think if we all bought food that didn't have ingredients on the label, or just one ingredient, we'd all be a lot healthier"!
I agree with tuna being a great staple. I buy tins in bulk and add it to lots of meals. But I didn't think it was that high in omega-3s, though my concern is the protein!
no ingredient label on a potato - how true! And they don't get advertised, either. Makes you think, doesn't it?
cottage cheese has come a long way and is actually surprisingly tasty. One of my lunch staples.
eating egg whites only - I remember reading about that! I agree, no excuse unless you are making meringue!
weight gain from not enough sleep may well be from sugar hits and energy drinks to try to stay awake. So not a direct effect but comes to the same thing.
I really can't believe anyone has a fat belly down to not getting enough sleep. If they're working out hard enough and eating well, surely not sleeping enough can't have that much effect?
Just tried a single-leg deadlift for the first time ever. Great exercise! Why haven't I discovered this before? I would recommend anyone doing it as it's actually enjoyable to do too and probably improves balance and coordination no end too.
People who just do sit ups drive me batty. Don't they realise they could also be working another part of their body so get double-benefits from one exercise. e.g. the plank?
sadly the old adage is proven again - you can't out-exercise a bad diet! The best abs in the world won't show under a layer of blubber, and at times I am as guilty as anyone.
Hmmm now this making me think that maybe stress is playing a part in my stubborn fat belly. I do all the other things on the list but do tend to be stressed a lot. This health lark is more complex than simply exercising!
I don't even need 10 exercises for my workouts. I do only press ups, squats and dumbbell presses. It really is all you need.
I think i am a typical 'toffee' - slim but with a pot belly and probably fat on the inside due to having a lot of sugar. So I do 3 HIIT workouts each week for 20 minutes each. I can't see what's happening on the inside but I am assuming my regime will tackle the belly fat.
there's a reason that these same exercise always come up - they work! That said, the single-leg deadlift is a new one for me, I will be careful not to fall over!
YOu're right Lucy, that photo doesn't paint a good picture of marathon runners. I have taken part in a recent 10k when there were loads of plastic water bottles being given away. I was very thirty so took one but it felt wrong and I thought they should really supply something else for long races.
Even if brown bread has had treacle added to it I don't see what the problem is. It would only be a tablespoon at most which, when divided amongst the entire loaf, won't amount to much at all per slice. Just eat a couple of slices, not rounds and rounds of jam on toast!
all respect to those who do it - but as seen in the photo, look at the mess these events make. I don't support marathons or big running events for that reason, huge amounts of litter and plastic.
good mythbusting as there is a lot of babble about. Of course bread doesn't make you fat, but like anything else it needs to be eaten in the right amounts. didn't know about the treacle though!
Having done an 'almost' vegan January I can say that I definitely feel healthier for having eaten so many vegetables. I also feel proud of having been more ethical in avoiding meat and dairy as much as possible. I feel ,like I have made a difference to myself and the world, just a little, and I mean to continue.
Bread doesn't make you fat! If so, how are there so many people in the world eating bread who are skinny? If people are active enough, and eat a sensible amount of bread, why would it make you fat?
My advice would be to eat sourdough bread. It's got healthy gut bacteria in it so is very good for you and much more natural than processed bought bread.
8 hours on your feet? I've done 6 hour walks but always with breaks and sit-downs. Not for me but respect to all who do marathons!
Now that I can see the occasional flickers of spring sunshine I feel brighter and more energised already!
