Know why you have Food Cravings1. You're not hungry - You're Thirsty! Yes, thats the reason. When you feel thirsty, it  is already a long-awaiting scream for energy.

If you crave for food, sit down and have a big glass of water, then wait 20 minutes because that is how long your body needs to tell you for su…

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
Watch your thoughts. I try to do that all the time..
But not when i m running and i keep watching my thoughts being aware of my feet in my shoes. It robs me of being "in the zone".
But not with the Floatride. I am not even conscious of the "newness" or rather the "strange-ness" of my shoe. And that's good! Especially for me - because i had suffered ligament tear to my ankle previously and my knees gave way previously when i was obese at 95kg.

Every new trainers put me in this freakish mood where i will be super aware of how my shoes are performing. Is it flip flopping my ankle joint? And not offering it the stability i need. And there were occasions where i put on high cut shoes to protect my ankles, and it restricted my mobility to the point of pain at my knees because it had to compromise to my restricted ankle movements. It became worse when i put on my knee guard as it then hurts at the hip.

The stability-mobility continuum and its compromise and…
As we move to function in our daily life, we perform to the best of our abilities. Hence, everyone is really an athlete because we push our movement boundaries.

Women needs 5 ounces of protein daily, men, 6 ounces and children 2 to 5 ounces (depending on their age). A 3-ounce serving of fish is about the size of a regular checkbook.

Athletes require more energy and their protein needs are also high not only due to the needs for muscle repair and renewal, it is also important for hormonal, circulatory, immune functions etc.

For athletic performance, a healthy protein status is needed. Protein aids in several ways:

1. Protein enhances the repair and renew actions necessary in muscles following exercise, and is a vital part of recovery.

What to eat? Beef, nuts, seeds, healthy dairy, fish and beans have higher amounts of leucine, an important amino acid biomarkers for muscles.

With regards to fish, oh yes! I love my Norwegian Salmon because it provides me with complete and high quality pr…
