4 Ways to Outsmart Your Stomach

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Health & Fitness | 0 comments

Your stomach knows what time it is. That’s the new finding from Australian researchers, who discovered that your gut has its own circadian rhythm, much like the one that governs sleep and wake times. When you eat, your stomach stretches out, which activates nerves in your tummy. And how these nerves respond depends on the time of day, says study coauthor Amanda Page, Ph.D. During the day, the nerves are less sensitive, so you can eat more. “The stomach needs to be much fuller before these nerves send signals to the brain that you’re done eating,” says Page.

You already have quite a few tricks up your sleeve that may help you eat less—chewing more, sleeping more, and drinking more water, to name a few.  Well, the latest trick may be the boldest one of all: Eat off of bright red plates, and you could eat less overall. That’s the conclusion from a new study published in the journal Appetite. For the study, researchers gave 240 participants snacks of popcorn and chocolate chips served on either red, white, or blue plates.  And it turns out that those who munched popcorn or chocolate chips off of red plates ate less overall than those who ate the snacks off of white or blue.

Post-Exercise recovery can be simplified into 3 Rs: rehydrate, refuel and rebuild. Rehydrating replaces lost fluids and electrolytes from sweat, while refueling focuses on carbohydrates to restore muscle glycogen and essential amino acids from high-quality proteins help repair and rebuild muscle tissue and stimulate muscle growth. As a general rule, try to get 15-25 g of quality protein, with .5-.7 g of carbohydrate per pound of body weight immediately post-exercise. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends carbohydrates within the first 30 minutes of stopping exercise to optimize the update of glucose into muscles. Since whole foods provide hundreds of bioactive compounds, such as antioxidants that may provide additional benefits for enhancing your recovery, focus on whole foods first and supplements second.
