Back-To-School Nutrition Basics

We have been hearing for quite some time to eat smaller more frequent meals during the day. Experts recommend that we eat approximately 6-8 meals daily for fat loss or to maintain a healthy weight. For most people that is going to work out to eating every four to six hours. There are several hurdles to overcome when eating this frequently, figuring out what to eat and having food with you during the day.

Folate is important for cell formation. Obviously it goes without saying that it is important for pregnancy. How many of you know the periphery pregnancy period? It is the first 28 days of the pregnancy. Unless one plans it is impossible to define that duration. Hardly 40 to 50% of American women can plan their child-birth. Let us admit that it is not in our hand. Leave it to nature. Take proper whether you are a child-bearing woman or not. In any case nutrition is important and not only folate for a healthy baby.

No more for me thanks! Alcohol is one of the best substances you can use to dehydrate your body. The reaction of the body to this is to release lots of cortisol (remember the stress hormone that deposits fat around the waistline), control this by limiting alcohol intake. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t have the occasional night out, but keep them few and far between, and drink responsibly. Also, ordering water between alcoholic drinks will help.

I believe weight loss supplements can be beneficial if we learn to look past the hype and use them in addition to improved eating habits as well as increased physical activity.

Another important function of vitamin C is in the formation of collagen, the connective tissue basis, which is mostly found in skin, teeth, and bones. This vitamin is then needed to give support and shape to the body, to help heal the wounds, and to maintain healthy blood vessels. Some studies have also linked vitamin C with its ability to prevent a number of cancers, to reduce the risk of heart disease, to prolong life, and to keep skin healthy.

I’m sure that some of what’s in my vitamin pills do no good. But there just might be some benefit. Maybe my Diet Product lacks some of the vitamins I get in the pills I take. So I’ll keep taking a multivitamin pill every day. But I better make sure they are good quality, otherwise it’s a total waste of money.

That’s where anti aging supplements can step in and pick up the slack. Anti aging supplements go to work fighting some of the side effects of getting older. You might notice as you’ve aged that your ‘get up and go’ isn’t the same.

Also, increase your intake of beta carotene sources to avoid an overdose. Whereas your body absorbs all the vitamin A it takes in directly, it converts only the beta carotene it needs (talk about customization!).
