This is first of my wellness series blogs. Let me start with food, as people say we are what we eat. Of course, this is more aptly corrected to ‘when we eat’!
Those who are familiar with my belief and passion for Intermittent Fasting will understand better the meaning of when eaten.
This diagram is from a fitness friend who is a role model in fitness and working out. The picture shows how food is so important.
Again, some of you may remember that I am managing a whatsapp broadcast group and we are now almost 50 in numbers. And I intend to get certified as a wellness coach.
I have been advising my Intermittent Fasting Group to try Keto diet for significant weight loss. Perhaps a correction is required (as prompted by this diagram).
Carb, we thought is something to be avoided or kept minimum. But perhaps, if you exercise well you may need some good carbs for energy. Apparently net carb is total carbs minus fibre. Then go for the carbs mentioned in the diagram. For example whole grains for your traditional dishes, you can’t live without.
If you are building muscles and reach almost failure point in muscle toning workouts, please don’t ignore proteins. I have had some bad experiences when i didn’t eat the two eggs after a fairly strenuous workout.
And finally, the good fat is required. Please don’t take it as a license for offals, other tasty fat, red meat etc, but go for good oil and fat as suggested.
Always consult your doctor/ dietitian when making drastic changes to what you eat.
