Sleep and sugar and optimum health

At PWR Personal Training we continue to study the scientific research surrounding optimum health. You can do it too, but probably it is best to dig as deep as you can into the subjects of nutrition, physical fitness and lifestyle.
It is important to be sceptical of websites that offer sound science to back up their headlines. Scepticism is required until you discover the producer of the website. Often what appears to be objective science is actually heavily loaded in favour of the product or service the website is offering further down the scroller. At first the presentation of the science is gratefully received, but gradually one can start to sense an overwhelming bias towards the product. Often this is a magical weight loss product or an obscure new supplement that is saving lives etc.
  • On balance, a healthy lifestyle is simply just that: a good balance.
Every night the body works while you sleep, to reset itself. The organs and systems deal with the toxins produced and eaten by your body during the day. Despite it doing its best, this normal bodily process is directly affected by our lifestyle, our diet and our level of exercise. If our lifestyle and choices overwhelm the system, this overnight bodily reset can misfire.
I research diet books and strategies all the time. The best diet plan I have found after years of research, is Patrick Holfords "Low GI (or GL) Diet" book and others by this expert nutritional scientist. Holford looks at food from a scientific and pragmatic stance, and produces sound, sensible advice, backed up by his own in depth studies. I recommend  "The Holford Low Gl Diet" by Patrick Holford (£1.01 online).

If you have been doing the same exercise routine regularly and not achieving the weight loss solution goal you had planned for, the chances are you may not be doing the exerise routine correctly.
