Many marathoners believe they can eat anything they like because they “run it off,” but a growing body of research shows the danger in that thinking.
Kind of a no-brainer to be honest, but still important.
Cinnamon, dark chocolate, protein, donuts? Yum!
Snack before training. Full of everything I need to slow me down. =]
dude your gonna get cancer of some sort if you keep eating that poison
I know, that’s why I said it’ll slow me down, it’s horrible. xO
I don’t do it often, though, I just hadn’t eaten anything.
Still didn’t get beat, though. =P
ok buddy:] but id rather go hungry than eat that crap
You’re scolding me, but haven’t considered, what if I needed the sugar, because I could get dizzy and faint and possibly die? =\
i can help you with that! i used to be a alcoholic and i ended up with hypoglycemia because of it. but i would use fruits and juices when i got shaky and weak, later on i found out about spring forest Qigong from my osteopathic Dr , and i eventually tried it out , immediately after i felt the difference, it helped me with so many other things at first then gradually after a month and a half later of practice i had noticed my hypoglycemia was gone completely . so don’t read this and start pouting like a little putts making up up excuses not to try it . it’s one of the few things out their that works without any side effects . look up the testimonials if you need to:) …their are many different qigong forms out their but spring forest qigong is one that designed to address all diseases. you can also try falun gong but it has been given a bad reputation, that only a fool would listen to. i have used both and now have perfect health.
Well, I did not expect this, thank you so much, but I’m in perfect health.
I only said that, because you were saying you’d rather go hungry, but seemed to forget that I’m not you and I may have needed it. This info though, it’s great!
To any of my followers who may find this info interesting, definitely check it out. I will, too. I wanna learn what this is about. =]

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday proposed a rule change that would eliminate trans fat from all processed foods in a move the agency said would prevent heart attacks and other heart disease.
This is interesting. After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.
Bananas contain three natural sugars -sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.
But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
DEPRESSION: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
ANEMIA: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
BLOOD PRESSURE: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
BRAIN POWER: 200 students at a Twickenham school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packe d fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
CONSTIPATION: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
HANGOVERS: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
HEARTBURN: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
MORNING SICKNESS: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
MOSQUITO BITES: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
NERVES: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..
Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
ULCERS: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL: Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’
I’m probably in the minority but i wouldn’t hold it against my wife if she can’t cook..It’s hard enough to find a compatible person to build with now days, assuming they do everything else right I’m not gonna dismiss em just because they lack some culinary skills. Now don’t…
lmfao. I don’t understand how people can’t. It’s so simple. But if I married a girl who was into fitness and everything else I liked but couldn’t cook( very unlikely) I wouldn’t care, because I can cook.
Yeah I don’t get this. I can’t cook, myself. In fact I have joked that my cooking is so bad that my super power is burning water in the microwave. You would think that I’d find cooking to be an important trait “in a partner”, but I don’t.
Being in a relationship is a state of opportunities. Perspective is very important, and if the person who they’re with is important enough then they’ll look for those opportunities to change the way that they look at a situation.
Cooking is a great opportunity to share experiences with your partner. Both people can find something that they want to make, then experiment with doing so. Have a fall back plan obviously, but see if you can make something together. If that’s not an option (aka: You’re getting in each others’ way) then choose days where one tries to cook for the other and swap days.
Cooking isn’t rocket science. Both will pick it up sooner or later and both will probably even find foods that they never new they liked.
Relationships are a process. If cooking is so important that it prevents a person from dating someone then that person is probably not ready for (much of) a relationship.
Quinoa is kind of a super food:
- Complete protein
- ..of which it’s one of the richest sources from plants
- Quinoa is a good source…:
- ..of Fiber
- ..of phosphorus
- ..of iron
- ..and of calcium
Mix in some chicken, as I’m having, and you have yourself a protein rich meal on the cheap.
Oh, and a chocolate chip cookie because that’s just how I roll.
