What Should My Training Plate Look Like ?

What Should My Training Plate Look Like ?

An athlete’s plate should be balanced between carbohydrate, protein, and fat food sources. Choose complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, unsaturated fats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables to ensure variety in the diet. The following total calorie intake is recommended: carbohydrates, 50% to 60%; proteins, 15% to 20%; and fats, 20% to 30%. Carbohydrates include fruits, vegetables, breads, rice, pasta, potatoes, cereal, oatmeal, pretzels, and crackers. Lean proteins include chicken and turkey without the skin, fish, lean cuts of beef and pork, eggs, beans, nuts, nut butters, soy, and low-fat dairy products (skim and 1%).

Healthy fats include oils, nuts, seeds, fatty fish, avocado, and nut butters. Figure 1 represents what an athlete’s training plate should look like in relationship to the distribution of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. A specific designation for fats is not included on the plate diagram, as fats are sprinkled in throughout the day in the foods that are consumed and in the way foods are prepared (sautéing, stir frying, and using oil-based dressings). Athletes can easily use the figure as a visual guide for proper eating both at home and on the road.

PS : Add a variety of colors to your plate; eating an assortment of fruits and vegetables will provide nutrients and flavor to your meals.

  1. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
