How the Food You Eat Makes You More (or Less) Productive

How the Food You Eat Makes You More (or Less) Productive | Latest on Healthy Eating | Scoop.it
There are tons of cliché wisdoms about nutrition: Eat at least five servings of fruit every day. Drink plenty of water. Eat three separate meals. Do this, do that, that's "healthy." What's true?

Yasmeen Lee's comment, March 25, 2013 12:03 PM
I found this article very helpful in determining which foods I should snack on and which foods I should avoid. Junk food is so convenient today that it is easy to forget about your diet. We fail to notice when we are reaching for a sugary snack to satisfy our hunger because we think it will keep us full and energized. In reality, it will only satisfy our hunger for a short amount of time. However, research has proven that healthy alternatives such as whole grains, nuts, and fruits will actually keep us full and focused for longer. In addition to learning about which foods to graze on, I found it really interesting that a trick to eating less was to reduce the size of a plate. I never noticed how much more food we put on a larger plate compared to a smaller plate. I will use the knowledge I gained from this article and apply it to my healthy living strategy in order to make wiser choices in my diet.

So much time, energy and money sunk into "junk"
Yasmeen Lee's comment, March 25, 2013 11:55 AM
In this news article, I have come to conclusion that in this century most Americans will try to avoid cooking. Even though Americans are consciously aware that the food they are eating is not good for them they consume fatty and sugary foods all day. While they feel guilty in the short term they fail to look at what they are doing to their body in the long run. I was appalled when I read 1/4th of the adult population is clinically obese. What is even worse is that they are passing down their bad eating habits onto their children. Rather than preparing a home cooked meal or even taking 15 minutes out of the day to make lunch for their child they would rather buy TV dinners and Lunchables—both extremely low in nutritional value. I think this is a cry for help. Americans need to change their diet immediately if they ever want to live a healthy and long life. Americans have to start thinking of the long term effect of a poor diet before taking that cookie or that last scoop of ice cream.

Their question: which is more important—what you eat or when you eat? For example, what would happen if you could only eat between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm? Would you gain less weight and be healthier overall even if you ate a high fat diet? Their answer was “yes.”

How To Make the Perfect Preworkout Shake | How To Do Everything Better | Men's Health

Make the Perfect Preworkout Shake...Start with 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder (about 30 grams) and 12 ounces of nonfat milk instead of water. This yields roughly 240 calories, 40 grams of protein, 16 grams of carbs, and 3 grams of fat. Toss in some fruit for flavor, or a tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter for a creamier shake. These will boost calories, carbs, and fat, but they're good for your overall diet.
