Prepare Fruits and Vegetables the Way You Like Them

Pole Dancer diet should include fruits and vegetables. Pole dancers may not you might not like raw broccoli but steamed broccoli you just might love. Don’t give up on your produce if you don’t like it the first time. Getting healthy produce to your family’s table is the first step to eating healthier. Getting your family to actually eat those new fruits and veggies can be just as challenging.

Ease healthy options into your old ways of eating. Add a fruit or veggie to your family’s favorite dishes. It’s not hard to incorporate peas, carrots or other vegetables to your favorite pasta sauces or casseroles. Eating healthier doesn’t mean eating food you don’t like but rather finding and eating the healthy foods you do like.

Pole Dancing Nutrition

Know and understand what’s in the food you eat. If you like to guzzle a protein shake before or after training, know what’s in it and how it contributes to your overall nutritional goals for the day. They are not all created equal! That’s not to say that you should avoid them. Again, just know how they contribute to your overall nutritional goals for the day.

1) Stock your pantry and fridge with whole grains, seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables

The idea here is to set yourself up for nutrient-rich food choices by making that choice convenient! It should be as quick and easy to grab some strawberries and cheese as it is to grab a handful of chips (or two, or three, or the bag). If you do eat the chips … well, pay close attention to point #4 below.

2) Know your food weaknesses

If you have a sweet tooth, make an effort have healthy sweet snacks around like berries, cacao, or dates. I tend to reach for savory or salty snack foods … so I try to make sure I have options like homemade whole grain crackers, or peanut butter, or roasted chickpeas. These hit all the same buttons as a bag of chips would, but with more fiber and more nutrients. Win!

3) Food is not a moral value. Food is food.

It’s very easy to develop a psychologically unhealthy relationship with food — all you have to do is start attributing morals to it. Did you eat a bag of chips? OK, so what. Did you proceed to beat yourself up about it and overcompensate by starving yourself for the rest of the day to “make up” the calories? Or did you shrug it off, knowing that one bag of chips does not an unhealthy lifestyle make? The more we learn to consider food as what it actually is — fuel for our bodies, with some fuels providing more “oomph” nutritionally than others — the further we are on the path to having a positive relationship with food.

A few sessions with a nutritional consultant is often money well spent, especially if you have never read a food label in your life, or don’t understand how different foods provide fuel in different ways. Or, if you have a friend who knows and understands a lot about balance nutrition, spend a few hours with him or her. Do some meal prep together.

Shed Pounds with the correct eating Schedule

The researchers at the University of Alabama are examining whether a change in eating schedule can help people lose weight. The first human test of early time-restricted feeding, or eTRF, found it reduced hunger swings and altered fat and carbohydrate-burning patterns. This may lead to weight loss. On eTRF, people eat their last meal by mid-afternoon. They do not eat again until breakfast the next morning. The findings were unveiled last month at The Obesity Society Annual Meeting at Obesity Week 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Lose weight

“Eating only during a much smaller window of time than people are typically used to may help with weight loss,” said Courtney Peterson, PhD. Courtney is an associate professor in the department of nutrition sciences at UAB. “We found that eating between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., followed by an 18-hour daily fast, kept appetite levels more even throughout the day, in comparison to eating between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. That is what the average American does.”

The human body has an internal clock, and many aspects of metabolism are at their optimal functioning in the morning. Therefore, eating in alignment with the body’s circadian clock, by eating earlier in the day, may positively influence health. This first test of eTRF in humans follows rodent studies of weight loss. That study found that eTRF reduced body fat and decreased the risk of chronic diseases in the rodents.

Eating schedule

During the human study, Peterson and her colleagues followed 11 men and women over 4 days of eating between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., and 4 days of eating between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Researchers tested the impact of eTRF on calories burned, fat burned and appetite. Participants tried both eating schedules, ate the same number of calories both times, and completed all testing under supervision.

Researchers found that, although eTRF did not affect how total calories participants burned, it reduced daily hunger swings. it also increased fat burning during several hours at night. It improved metabolic flexibility as well, which is the body’s ability to switch between burning carbs and fats.

Whether eTRF helps with long-term weight loss or improves other aspects of health is still unknown. Peterson says that, because the human study involved only a small number of participants, a larger, more comprehensive study, will need to take place.
