Vegetarian Cyclists Nutrition

“The average person has about the same amount of iron in their body as a large rusty nail. It’s purpose in the body is to help with the formation of red blood cells that are used to transport oxygen to a cyclists hard working muscles. A deficiency of iron could lead to anemia and the associated symptoms of tiredness and fatigue. In athletes where the risks of over training are high (such as in cycling) it is vitally important to maintain high levels of iron in order to maintain performance. Symptoms of Iron Deficiency in Cyclists Symptoms of iron deficiency are not unique to the condition and can easily be mistaken for general states of tiredness. To the cyclist however, many of the symptoms can simply be diagnosed as over training when in fact a deficiency can be a cause of the symptoms. Symptoms of iron deficiency include: Fatigue Weakness Brittle Nails Irritability Paleness of colour in the face/tongue Pica (a strange craving for mineral rich non food substances such as dust or sand) Vegetarians and iron Iron is one of the most difficult minerals for our bodies to breakdown and absorb. In addition endurance athletes such as cyclists lose iron during exercise and therefore need to ensure iron intake is high to maintain the correct levels. Add to this that vegetarians generally have a lower iron intake because of their diet (see below) and it is easy to see why cyclists with vegetarian diets need to pay particular attention to their iron intake to avoid an iron deficiency. Foods that are rich in iron Most mild iron deficiencies in cyclists can be corrected by changes in diet that result in an increase in the consumption of iron rich foods. Generally foods contain two types of iron: Heme iron sources are usually found in meats and are much more easily broken down and absorbed by the body than non-heme ironthat is usually found in vegetables and grains. The foods listed below have high iron content; Lean red meats, chicken, turkey Fish (eaten by some vegetarians) Eggs Beans (fresh or baked), lentils, chick peas Nuts Fortified breakfast cereals Brown Rice Tofu Wholewheat bread Leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli Dried fruit such as apricots, prunes, raisins Avocado Iron Absorption Most vegetarian diets do not contain as much iron as a non-veg one. The interesting thing about iron as mentioned above is that the body finds it very hard to absorb. Vitamin C has been found to be great at helping the body absorb iron. Foods particularly rich in vitamin C such as oranges, kiwi, broccoli, kale, tomatoes, peppers and orange juice can massively increase the amount of iron you can absorb. Therefore if you are a vegetarian be sure to make sure you include these types of foods in your diet. On the flip side tea has been found to impede iron absorption so again try to avoid drinking tea with or immediately after your meals. Iron Supplements Iron supplements are usually not required unless you have very severe iron defficiency. Too much iron can be very bad for the body and so most doctors recommend treating any deficiencies purely through the adaption of diet. Donating Blood If you give blood you usually have about 1 pint removed each time which equates to about 10% of the total blood in your body. If you have particularly low iron levels the nurse may send you away without taking any blood telling you to increase your iron intake. Assuming you do give blood, you will need to pay attention to your diet to help your body recover it’s hemoglobin levels as quickly as possible. Your on bike performance should not be affected for moderate rides however during high intensity rides (races, interval training etc) you may notice a drop in performance until your body has recovered which can take up to 14 days.”

Several Things That Make You Fat

Several Things That Make You Fat

Weight loss has always been a mystery to people around the world, with many people swearing by strange diets and pills that at best can give you bad breath or just don't work. We all know that deep down eating less food and taking more exercise is the key to losing weight, it's just that most people can't face this reality and are looking for an easier option. After trawling through the vaults of stories and current research some of the results below are genuine suggestions to help you lose weight.

1. There was a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research which concludes the problem may not be your appetite; it could be your reading skills. According to the study, healthy-sounding labels are duping dieters. So large people were being fooled into thinking that the 6 chocolate eclairs they had just eaten were good for them, just because they had a 50% off label on them, 'that's the price - not the amount of fat'.

2. Your Diet Soda Habit - Put down the pop! Studies have shown that men who drink two or more diet sodas a day have waist size increases up to six times greater than those who don't drink diet soda. These insidious sodas may be free of calories, but they're not free of consequences!

3. Lack of Sleep - New research suggests sleepless nights don't just ruin your mood the next day, they could also damage your waistline. Researchers at the New York Obesity Nutrition Research Centre at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital found that while sleepy folks seem to burn the same number of calories as well-rested people, they can consume about 300 more calories a day.

Use these 5 tips to help nip your stress in the butt and trim down your waistline!

4. The Room Temperature - Trying to lose weight? Turn down the thermostat. A cozy home could be contributing to making you fat, suggests research in the journal 'Obesity Reviews'. When our bodies are cold we shiver, causing our muscles to contract to generate heat - and burn calories. Can you see people shivering in their own homes just trying to lose a bit of weight?

5. Your Overweight Friends - A Journal of Medicine study declared that people can actually ''catch'' obesity from close friends. When researchers followed 12,067 people over 32 years, they concluded that those of us with very close friends who are obese have a 171 per cent higher chance of becoming obese too. The theory goes: you're influenced by your friends, and if they over eat, you may unwittingly follow their lead. Surprisingly, spouses have less sway over the belly than close friends of the same sex. The good news is that it may also work in reverse. Hang out with thin people and you might lose weight.

6. Eating Too Much - If you prescribe to the idea that eating small meals frequently throughout the day makes it easier to reduce overall calories, you could be doing yourself a disfavour. Turns out we're programmed to think that a meal is a perfect combination of proteins, carbohydrates, and fat. In some studies the mini-meals are regarded by our bodies more like proper meals and their associated calories.

7. Toxic Chemicals - While you may never have heard of phthalates - a family of chemicals used to make plastics flexible - new evidence linking these, and other so-called "endocrine-disrupting" chemicals, with obesity has been growing. In fact, researchers have taken to calling many of these substances obesogens (obesity-promoting chemicals). A healthy immune system can help ward off the dangers of these chemicals, but why not boost your body's efforts by not packing your produce in plastic the next time you buy groceries?

8. Your Stress Level - When you have stress, your body steps up its production of cortisol and insulin. Your appetite increases, and so do the chances you'll engage in "hedonistic" eating in the form of high-calorie sweets and fats. When you try to combat stress with food, you activate the reward centre of your brain. After that initial feel-good spell wears off, you'll reach again for the same thing that made you feel good the first time.

Take these eight points with a pinch of salt if you like, but working with big size gentlemen everyday as a big size mens clothing company, there always seems to be a degree of overeating and lack of exercise that is contributory to their obesity, most men would admit this. The difficulty is making that change and lowering your intake of calories, help with this will be covered in our next article.
