Want to lose weight? Here’s how… Part 2

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A common pitfall for people is failing to plan. A lack of support also makes it difficult for people to stick to a diet, and you see the best results when someone has adopted a new lifestyle with a friend or partner. So get your team-mates to support you, and your team will be topping the league table in no time.Click here to see Part 1 to Matt Lovell’s step-by-step weight loss plan. Includes advice about portion sizes, when’s best to eat, and alcohol… Burger boys: but are these ITM Cup players making healthy burgers? If you eat too quickly, you’ll eat too much, and any extra glucose may be stored as fat due to high insulin levels. Even if you’re taking in the right foods, eating fast can stop you achieving the desired results, so use these tips to help you slow down.Put less food on your plate; chew properly, and finish your mouthful before you put more food in; put your fork down between each mouthful; don’t eat while doing something else, such as watching TV, as you won’t notice how much you’re eating; be sociable at meal times, taking time over your meal with friends and family; stop eating when you’re no longer hungry; while preparing your meal, snack on some raw veg, or have soup as a starter, so that you’re drip-feeding your calories.Chop and changeEat according to what you’re going to be doing over the next three hours, or what you’ve just done. If athletes eat the same thing every day, their performance and recovery will be the same. If you’re going to be training hard, or have just trained hard, eat more than if you’re having a light training day or a day off.Pesky pitfallsYou need to boost your metabolic rate by eating more protein, good fats and vegetables, while doing high-intensity, resistance-based exercise, such as interval training. A big mistake of all diets is to restrict your energy, putting the body into a catabolic state. In this state of breakdown you’ll lose muscle as well as fat and your metabolism will drop. People can’t stick to crash diets because they result in such low energy levels that they then binge-eat and undo all the hard work.center_img How did you get on with Part 1 of England nutritionist Matt Lovell’s step-by-step rugby diet plan? Here’s Part 2… Five a day won’t keep fat at bayForget five portions of fruit and veg a day – it should be nine a day. And of those nine servings, at least six should be vegetables, and only one to three fruit. Fruit is sweet, portable and convenient, so a common mistake is to eat lots of it. But remember fruit contains a lot of sugar, so isn’t nearly as beneficial as eating your greens.Fruit shouldn’t be eaten as a dessert; when you’ve just had a main course and your blood-sugar levels are normal, the glucose and fructose (sugar) found in fruit will mostly turn to fat. So fruit is best eaten on its own, or with a protein snack such as nuts and seeds, yoghurt and cottage cheese, and preferably after exercising or doing manual work because fructose helps your liver glycogen levels to recover.Berries are the best fruit as they have a high concentration of protective nutrients. Spices and herbs have similar properties, so use plenty of them.Banana men: but don’t eat fruit for dinner, or more than twice a day!Grain freezeThink about the types of carbohydrates you’re eating, and when you’re eating them. Grains, and especially wheat, can hamper weight loss, and also encourage water retention in the body, making you feel bloated. Starchy carbohydrates such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes should only be eaten following exercise, and if you really want to lose weight you should cut them out completely.Fibrous carbohydrates (anything green or that grows above the ground such as broccoli, asparagus and cauliflower) can be eaten at any time. So if your typical day would involve you eating a wheat-based cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, pasta for dinner, and a couple of biscuits as a snack, think again. A large white pitta bread contains 60g of carbs, but to get that from asparagus you’d have to eat 2kg worth. If you go for the latter option, you feel fuller, lighter, healthier – because it contains more nutrients – and you’ll have more energy.Lunch bunch: the Twickenham fans get stuck in before an England gameSlow and steady wins the racelast_img read more

Quiin – A person who loves simplicity, simplicity but rebellious. Quiin House is designed from interaction and mutual respect in work. Our mission in implementing the Quiin House project is to create a quiet, clean and inspirational space. A space where Quiin can comfortably reflect, create, craft a handmade or capture. So the only thing we think we need to provide in this project is “Cavity” and “Light”.Save this picture!© Kingkien PhotographySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Kingkien PhotographyWith some urgent constraints in the minimal functional spaces and worship culture of the Chinese, in this project, we have tried to create a transparent space – the “invisible”. Mostly through the design of functional blocks around. The functional blocks are anchored in the “empty space”. As the creation of the air in the teapot – the “invisible” by molding the teapot – the “visible”. Besides, Function blocks – the “visible” is the isolation layer needed to create a quiet and clear space for the “invisible” gap.

NMPF Leader Reflects on Dairy Industry’s Resilience in 2020

first_img By Ashley Davenport – Nov 5, 2020 NMPF Leader Reflects on Dairy Industry’s Resilience in 2020 Audio Playerhttps://www.michiganagtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/NMPF-Leader-Reflects-on-Dairy-Industrys-Resilience-in-2020.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.At last fall’s dairy industry joint annual meeting, Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), talked about the resilience of dairy farmers.“Little did I know back then how important resilience was going to be for all of us this year because this year’s posed challenges beyond what any of us could have imagined one year ago,” he said during his virtual address to the industry.When the pandemic first began, Mulhern said the challenges to the dairy industry were clear and immediate, while the solutions were not. But there were three things giving the industry confidence.“We know the nation’s dairy farmers and our member cooperatives are essential to the nourishment of those we serve,” he said. “We knew the dairy community can be formidable when it pursues it goals with unity and commitment. And we knew that our organization has demonstrated a track record of effectiveness, even in the face of daunting tasks.”There were dark times for dairy producers earlier this spring, however, there were pockets of positivity and brightness.“Aided greatly by the efforts of the U.S. Dairy Export Council, international trade saw strong demand,” said Mulhern. “Here at home, retail milk flew off store shelves as consumers showed their support of the nutritious beverages they relied on most.”The root of that resilience is centered around its farmers.“Faced with an unprecedented rupture in the balance of supply and demand, many farmers used every tool in their arsenal to throttle back production,” said Mulhern. “From changing feed rations and milking schedules, to putting the brakes on their expansion, those efforts helped stave off what would have been a complete price collapse. They set the stage for a rebound.”Mulhern said because dairy doesn’t stop, and that made the need to getting support for the industry essential to cushion COVID’s blows.“We engaged in marathon discussions and strategized across the industry and throughout the government,” he said. “Together, we succeeded in making sure dairy received important levels of government disaster assistance—both in the first round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program payments and the more recent CFAP 2.”Mulhern added that there’s not a happy ending to this story since there’s still a lot of unknowns, but he is bullish.“Co-ops remain the heart and soul of this industry, and this industry benefits best when our cooperatives speak with unified voices.” Home Indiana Agriculture News NMPF Leader Reflects on Dairy Industry’s Resilience in 2020 SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleNielsen: Fall Anhydrous Applications Not Recommended on the HAT Thursday PodcastNext articleTrump Administration Seeks Extension to Respond to Biofuel Petition Ashley Davenport Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more
