For years I’ve been trying to get slimmer and more fit. I’ve managed to stop getting fatter and I’ve become kind of an expert in nutrition and diets. But… it seems I’m on a never ending road. Nutrition science and age are not on my side, for sure.
However I’m all eyes and ears for new discoveries and trying to adapt my lifestyle.
If you’ll find any good advice on this blog, my karma will be happy.
Plan to move, enjoy good food, plan to deal with stress.
You maybe think that whatever you do, the scale has become your worst enemy. Try answering these questions:
Do you have some kind of control over what you’re eating?
Are you cooking at home?
Have you done anything to stop craving for sugar or salt?
Do you eat desserts from time to time and not daily?
Are you exercising?
Carbs and Ex’s
One role for the insulin is to trigger conversion of glucose into fat. Burn it or store it, it seems there’s no other way to get rid of it.
These have worked for me:
Human Nutrition seems like a billion pieces puzzle and I wonder if ever we humans will be able to put all the pieces in order. One recent study says that “the carbohydrate-last meal pattern may be an effective behavioral strategy to improve postprandial glycemia”.
In another study, scientists have identified a microscopic universe of tiny microbes in our gut that seems to have a great deal to do with our weight.
New studies will hopefully bring in more pieces.
A few indicators, like calories, glycemic index, satiating index, insulin index, are quite enough in real life to help you build your weekly menu. With your eyes wide open in costs. Maybe it won’t be “the one”, the perfect healthy menu for you but in time, you can adjust it. Just keep an open mind to the latest discoveries.
