Whether it's the chemical name of a food or a technical term used to describe human metabolism, most people have a funny way of deciding what they trust and believe. An unfamiliar word isn't cause for awe or alarm. Don't be fooled by people who utilize them in unscrupulous ways. Don't fear what you don't yet understand. You'll save yourself a great deal of money and time.👍 @rpstrength @the_issn @acefitness @juggernauttraining #rpstrengthdiet #rpcoach #cissn #certifiedhealthcoach #rpfam #fitfam #fitness #fitnessmotivation #health #healthylifestyle #evidencebased #exercisescience #sportnutrition #nutrition #nutritionalscience #rd2b

For the past week I’ve been on a mad one (making curry) 🤣 non stop. And currently making another for me and @ellhudson tonight 🤝💕.
.
If you learn something once 💭 your pretty much guaranteed to remember how and what you did.
.
For years I’ve wanted to make my own curries - but every time I went shopping I would buy pre made sauce 🤷🏼‍♀️.
.
I think I’d assumed it wouldn’t turn out right and would taste awful 🤮 but this was SO simple. .
Did you know 🧠 there’s just under 25 grams of sugar in a Pataks Jalfrezi sauce and 27 grams of fat 🙆🏼‍♀️.
.
That’s ignoring other ingredients like ‘modified maize starch’ ⚠️. .
This took 5 minutes to make and tasted amazing 🤤 list of ingredients in my highlights. .

• Small steps can go a long way •

When it comes to everything & fasting is not an exception. Some individuals are overwhelmed in the 💡 of not eating, which results into non-stop eating. DISCLAIMER: the “famine-survival” mechanism can kick-in even during periods of fast: we skip one meal & we eat the quantity of 2 meals next. That’s not a problem though. As I have pointed out in previous posts research has shown that accumulation of the same calories in fewer meals has similar benefits with caloric restriction.

I shared the steps I used over the last 7 years to ease my way into fasting. It’s not that I have been continuously on a fasting regime anyway. I started on square one plenty of times.
.
I am a big believer in small steps.

Do you know how to read the labels on food packaging? Were you aware of how much sugar is in yogurts? Do you know how much you should be consuming per day anyway?

Don't be embarrassed if you don't. I teach how to read and interpret this information in my Eat to Thrive course as many people find it very confusing.

My advice with regards this headline?
1. Don't give up the yogurts, they're a healthy source of fats, calcium and other nutrients and good bacteria, but opt for the plain ones and add a little fresh fruit for flavour.
2. Sugary yogurt is not the only way to get calcium into our children - if they won't eat the plain version, there are lots of alternative calcium-rich foods so think about adding almonds, tahini and leafy green veg to their diet too!

I love this ‘context matters’ series from one of my favourite nutrition accounts @dietetically_speaking 😍
.
There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ - just individual needs and situations. .
Did you know, if you can’t have onion or garlic, you can replace the flavour profiles in cooked food with a spice called Asafoetida. It’s available in supermarkets and it’s low FODMAP. .
Here’s what @dietetically_speaking has to say about onion and garlic. ・・・
#ContextMatters when it comes to onion & garlic 😉
.
These can provide a lovely bit of flavour to a meal, as well as a little bit of fibre, & some vitamins & minerals e.g. garlic is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6 & magnesium, but of course it depends on how much garlic we eat, as 1 clove in a big pot of pasta sauce isn't going to add much nutrition! 🍴
.
These foods also contain prebiotics which feeds the good bacteria in our gut 💩
.
But they can trigger bloating, abdominal pain & bowel problems for some people with IBS because they are high FODMAP foods (types of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in our small intestine) 😰
.
Once again, one size doesn't fit all!
.
P.S. There is no good evidence that eating garlic prevents or cures a cold! 🤒

I’ve never been skiing as a vegan 🌱 so I’m not exactly sure how tricky it would be...

Our mid-week #ContextMatters post is about protein shakes 💪
.
These can be a convenient way to meet the increased protein requirements for muscle recovery after exercise - especially for strength & endurance athletes 🏋️‍♂️
.
If you do use protein supplement, make sure that these are good quality & batch-tested as some protein supplements sold online have been found to contain harmful & illegal substances - you can also get individual advice from a Sports Nutritionist or Dietitian about whether this would be useful for you, & what type to use 👩‍⚕️
.
But these aren’t always necessary, because most people already have a high amount of protein in their diet, & the extra protein needed for muscle recovery can be met by including 'complete protein' sources in the diet - like milk, soya milk, yoghurt and eggs 🥛
.
And the British Dietetic Association advise that when energy requirements are met, a balanced diet should provide enough protein to meet the extra protein intake needed for exercise recovery 🍴
.
For more information on this see my blog post: https://dieteticallyspeaking.com/protein-supplements-weighing-up-the-pros-and-cons/
. @fightthefads also covered this topic a few weeks ago, so check out their page for info about protein shakes & whether the timing of protein intake after a workout is important 🕔

There’s a rhyme and reason to everything we put into our little bottles. No fillers, no nonsense! Our philosophy is that everything we put on your face has a purpose. We’ve quite literally broken down glowing skin to a perfect science! 👩🏼‍🔬

Coziness is something that should not be exclusive to the weekends, amiright? The weeks are long and taxing for us college students, which means we ought to take every chance we get to make ourselves calm, collected, and comfortable. What better way to do that than with a nutritious, delicious, seasonal soup! And a recipe that’s quick and easy enough for a weeknight to boot.
Ingredients:
- 1 small squash, cubed (1-inch)
- 4 large carrots, cut into 1-inch thick rounds
- 1/2 large white onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1-inch piece fresh turmeric, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
- 3 1/2 - 4 cups vegetable stock
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Roast squash, carrots, onion (just leave halved, no need to chop), and garlic in a pan at 350F (convection) for 40 minutes. You don’t need to drizzle with olive oil for roasting, but you can if you prefer.
2. Remove from oven and place in blender along with remaining ingredients.
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Add more vegetable stock if you prefer soup to be thinner.
5. Reheat in pot if necessary.

Another great thing about soup is that there’s no better excuse for eating some freshly baked bread. If you try this recipe, let us know what you think in the comments!

...and the list goes on.
Research shows that as many as 80% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese, and a further 70% are insulin resistant. Although the relationship between PCOS and obesity is complex, we do know that being overweight only exasperates the condition therefore keeping a healthy weight is crucial for women with PCOS. But which diet is best to help you shift those extra pounds?
The truth is weight loss is massively over complicated and any of these diets can help you lose weight as long as you stick to the golden rule... YOU MUST BE IN A CALORIE DEFICIT! Depending on how severe your insulin resistance is you may want to play around with your carbohydrate intake, but the rule is still the same. If you are expending more calories than you’re consuming, you will lose weight. So do whatever suits you, just make sure you stay in a calorie effing deficit!
