Researchers followed two groups – one that was asked to decide on a snack before exercising and one that chose after. In the first group, 74% of participants made the judicious choice of an apple, while only 55% of those in the second group went healthy, the rest choosing a brownie. Researchers say making the decision in advance increases the odds of eating nutritiously by 20%.…

WHAT TO EAT… Before You Train These days, the most frequent question you’ll hear on the gym floor is not, “How much can you bench?” but rather “To fast … or not to fast?” That is the question. And the answer is, well, a bit complicated. The research is split on whether or not intermittent fasting is best for performance training. If your goal is to lose weight, working out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach may be helpful. A 2018 review of 46 studies found that eating before training can boost your endurance while working out; it also found that exercising while in a fasted state causes the release of more free fatty acids into your bloodstream, indicating improved fat burning. Harley Pasternak, MS, nutrition expert and celebrity trainer,…

3 ways with monk fruit sweetener

Mix in Some Monk Fruit Since monk fruit is 100 to 200 times sweeter than table sugar, a small amount will suffice in cooking or baking. Some products are sweetened only with monk fruit, while others combine it with other sweeteners such as cane sugar, erythritol and dextrose. Read product labels carefully as erythritol can cause digestion troubles in some individuals. In the following recipes, we used between ¼ to ¾ tsp in both sweet and savory dishes to bring balance and richness. We like to pair this product with bold flavors like smoked paprika or the sumptuous caramel of the dates. Instant Pot Pulled BBQ Chicken with Coleslaw SERVES 4.1½ lb skinless, boneless chicken thighs½ cup sliced yellow onion¾ cup unsalted tomato paste2 tbsp apple cider vinegar1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce2 tsp smoked paprika1…
