Fitness Fact Fridays – 19th September 2014

Friday Fact:

‘The biggest nutrition mistake people make is eating too much too infrequently.’

The biggest nutrition mistake people make is eating too much too infrequently. You are far better off eating several smaller meals over the course of the day. This will keep you more full (preventing you from snacking later) & allow your body to burn off the calories more efficiently. It will also give you more sustained energy throughout the day. So rather than gorging yourself two or three times a day, attempt to eat six small meals or three normal meals with three snacks. Also: make sure they are healthy!

Friday Fact:

‘Your body continues to gain strength as you age.’

 

A lot of people question whether they should continue strength training as they grow older. But new studies show that both men & women can continue to gain strength well into their sixties (& beyond). The key is using exercises that promote recovery & don’t place to much strain on your muscles. So, what this means, is that no matter your age, you should be exercising if possible!
