22 Jun 5 Questions with a Gym Nutritionist
1 Could you describe the new-age body image in a sentence?
Toned & Curvy Female Body
2 Give us 1 VIT ( Very Important Tip ) for all the gym bunnies out there.
The first 20′ after your training sessions are crucial. Have a nutritious snack to help your body recover. A few suggestions: A glass of milk and a banana OR 1 glass of orange juice and a few unsalted nuts OR a glass of buttermilk and 2-3 crackers.
3 Hydration: Do we all need the same amount of water to be healthy? And what do I do if I hate plain water?
No, we don’t! It depends on how much excersise you get as well as your age and individual needs. If you hate drinking water I suggest that you add 4 tbs honey, 1/8 tsp salt and 60ml orange juice to 1 litre of plain water and sip on that.
4 Protein Shakes, Energy Bars, Boost Gels. Waste-of-Money-Marketing or necessity?
I believe that they are only necessary when it comes to pro-athletes, such as body-builders, that need to get a high percentage of nutrients fast and maybe to individuals that work out intensively and don’t manage to cover the necessary protein intake though their diet mainly due to a lack of time.
5 The world is about to end and you can only save one type of sandwich. Which one?
It would have to be a turkey-cheese-letuce-tomato sandwich on a whole wheat baguette ( it combines protein with natural fresh ingredients and it will help you feel fuller, longer.)
