Hack your health with these three products
For this new postI want to share some hacks (nutrition wise) you guys can use to optimise your health and also achieve your goals.
What do I mean by hacks?
These are certain products which give you the most bang for buck, have a read below, see which ones might work for you based on your goals and let me know how you go!
All Natural Bakery OAT SLICE
If weightloss is your primary goal then skip this one ;) ;)
If performance and/or weight gain is your primary goal then read on below!!
First, lets look into the oat slice a little further:
Carbs 52 grams!!!
Fat 20 grams
This thing is a MONSTER!
To put this into perspective you'd roughly need around 200-250g of rice to get the same amount of calories and macro's this has!
Depending on what your nutrition looks like right now and how well your body responds to carbs add in 1 oat slice a day for 1-2 weeks and monitor weight gain and overall body composition. If weight goes up by 1/2 a gram or more per week keep it up.
If it doesn't review your overall food intake because it might mean you aren't eating enough!
Either use this pre or post workout to get your heavier carbs in. Rule of thumb is to have an oat slice either 2 hours before or 2 hours after training.
Brunswick Original Kippers
If you cannot stand the taste of tuna and aren't a fan of wild fish then this isn't for you - however you should really work on finding some type of seafood dish/recipe you enjoy ;) Check out @fuellikeanathlete on instagram and facebook for some recipes you might like.
A kipper is a whole herring, a small, oily fish, that has been split in a butterfly fashion from tail to head along the dorsal ridge, gutted, salted or pickled, and cold-smoked over smouldering woodchips - got this from google ;)
But why eat them?
These 100g tin is a super healthy mid-morning or afternoon snack (or meal for those lighter eaters) and is jam packed full of protein and fats (good ones)!
Let's look into this one a little further also:
Protein 15.7 grams
Fat 10.6 grams
EPA & DHA 1800mg
0 carbs and 0 sugar
This is where the magic happens with this product.
The recommended daily EPA and DHA (Fatty acids which your body needs) intake is around 2000mg-3000mg depending on the person. This small 100g tin of wild fish contains nearly all of your omega 3 (EPA and DHA) needs which means you won't need to supplement with fish oil tablets ;) ;) ;)
Looking to improve your gut health? Do you sometimes suffer from bloating, stomach cramps etc?
Due to the fermentation process involved in creating kombucha, it contains a large number of healthy bacteria known as probiotics. These bacteria line your digestive tract and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection and illness.
Since 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut, and the digestive system is the second largest part of your neurological system, it’s no surprise that the gut is considered the “second brain.”
Drinking kombucha every day can help you to maintain peak immune health, which trickles down into an impressive number of benefits for your overall health.
The plus side to all of this is they come in some great flavours, are enjoyed a lot due to its 'fizziness' and are super low in calories!
Happy to help.
