Macro or Micro nutrition

Saying you count macro’s is kinda like saying you do UFC. It can mean different things to different people.

In a perfect world we could eat whatever we want without consequence, unfortunately that’s not the case.

So here’s some quick tips to help you start killing in the kitchen...

🥩Red meats; 3-5 X PW 
🐟 Wild caught fish; 3 X PW.
🥦Fibre; 25-35gm PD
🍌Fruit; 2-3 PD
💧Water; All of the water

Protein, Carbs & Fats at every meal along with 2 cups of veg, because quality matter.
*A 2016 Harvard study has shown quality of carbohydrates is more important than quantity for overall health. So load up on those complex carbs and fibres.

Bonus points for Bone broth and probiotics to boost your immune system.

It’s common to see the Bros crush 400gm carbs per mea! yet hormones are synthesised from essential fatty acids.

It’s worth a mention if your not mastering all the above and crushing 8-10hrs sleep each night... well, it’s no use complaining about physic or wasting your money on supplements.

Before we go:
*Essential Fats are the precursors to hormones.
*Exercise is more effective than SSRI’s
*Micronutrient deficiency’s correlates with over 900 different lifestyle diseases.

What’s the take away msg?
Eat all the colours of the rainbow.
Food quality over food quantity.
get up and move around more.

The game changes is a documentary on Netflix promoting a vegan diet for better health and performance. In this article I will attempt to break down and compare some of the misconceptions made in the film. Confirmation bias is a term used when people seek out information and studies to back up their claims, we have all been guilty of this at times.
The game changers is jam packed (excuse the pun) with celebrities promoting their choice of diet and pseudoscience to back up said claims which makes it harder for people without a science background to challenge the claims that have been made in the film.

Roman gladiators ate a vegan diet
Gladiators were slaves owned by Roman aristocrats for entertainment purposes. The life expectancy of a gladiator was approximately two years once becoming a slave. It has been said gladiators were fed a diet full of grains and legumes to not only pack on body fat which offered some protection from cuts and wounds in the arena but was also a cheaper source of calories to feed the slave labour.

Quick tips
1) correcting your posture can do wonders to prevent putting muscles under strain and increasing blood flow.
2) cold showers and hot baths can help to increase blood flow into the muscles.
