5 Ways Your Diet Affects Your Mood

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, January 26, 9:01 PM

Food does indeed influence your mood and for mood swings associated with menopause, complex carbs are your best choice.

 

Health tips:  Choose veggies, fruits and whole grains as these are the carbs your body requires to support tryptophan, an amino acid that boosts brain levels of serotonin, the same brain chemical that's increased by some antidepressant drugs (which you want to avoid taking). Just eat real whole food carbs throughout your day to help your brain maintain levels of feel-good serotonin to keep a sunny disposition.

 

Here's an interesting information packed post on the "5 Ways Your Diet Affects Your Mood" from Greenliving by Jordyn Cormier.

No beba Coca-Cola | Comer o no comer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
Si le pagaran por traducir un texto, siempre intentando reconstruir lo más fielmente posible su sentido original, ¿cómo redactaría usted en castellano la frase “avoid sugar-sweetened beverages”? No soy un experto en filología inglesa, pero juraría que se traduce así: “evite las bebidas azucaradas”. ¿Es la Coca-Cola una bebida azucarada? Aquí no necesito una segunda opinión: como dietista-nutricionista les aseguro que sí lo es.

Sammy Shershevsky's curator insight, January 27, 7:54 PM

The article discusses various ideas for people searching for different goals when it comes to pre and post workout nutrition. Arguably two most vital meals are the meals one has before working out and the meals one has following the workout. It is always important to fuel the body for a workout either shortly or later on but it just as significant to fuel the body with the right nutrients to restore the muscle after a workout. For people trying to lose weight mainly, a light snack or nothing at all is ideal and a post workout meal or snack varies but anything with protein and enough carbs should do the trick. For people whose main goal is to build muscle, before a workout there should be a meal 2 hours before or a light snack for fuel. After, one should eat more protein and carbs then someone trying to lose weight after a workout. Also, the 30 minutes after a workout are vital to get in proper nutrition such as protein to refuel the muscles and restore them for the next workout. The media does not play a huge role in this is what most people think but in reality it does. This is not very much a news article but something that is trying to help all people who are struggling to either lose weight or gain muscle. A main problem for America is obesity and this is simply because most people have been told false information and believe it when it comes to nutrition. There are constant articles in the news and videos and interviews about people who lost many pounds and now look healthier than ever. There is even a TV show called "Biggest Loser" where the goal is to make people lose a significant amount of weight! Nutrition is often overlooked in our nation and in our whole world and things have to change.

Not Work-Life Balance, Work-Life Tempo

Not Work-Life Balance, Work-Life Tempo | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

"WORK_LIFE BALANCE IS A MYTH.  Have you tried to balance yourself on a thin beam? You can do it; it just takes a lot of concentration and effort. If you move, you need to move slowly in order to retain your balance. Have you tried to balance something on your head? Or, have you participated in a race in which you must balance an egg on a spoon? Both are doable. You just need to move slowly.

 

BALANCING WILL NOT SUFFICE IN TODAY"S FAST PACED WORLD. 

Of course, you can slow down and unplug from it all, and you definitely need to do this at times. However, depending on what type of life you want to live, a slow-pace or disconnected way may not work for you and your life purpose. A life choice for sure."

How to Tell If You’re Getting Enough Protein

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, January 25, 1:23 PM

Are you a family member concerned whether a loved one eating plant based foods is getting enough protein? This question often seems to be asked by meat eaters. The real question to ask for all humans who eat food is really what do I look for to tell if I'm getting enough protein.

 

Health tips:  Whether you're consuming plant based foods or not, you need amino acids which are what protein is made of and plants are rich in amino acids.  However for those people eating just veggies and fruits, more protein is needed from ancient grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes (beans, peas, lentils). People eating mainly processed fake foods won't get very much if any quality protein.

 

Here's an information packed article explaining everything you need to know in relation to protein and your body. "How to Tell if You're getting Enough Protein" from MindBodyGreen.org.
