    Damn, thanks for that buddy. That really is a good question.

    In this instance I'd like to leave this open for anybody to chime in with their own thoughts before I add mine

    I simply feel compelled to post this video, that girl is Emily Miazga who is the creator of PowerCookie and 3 x winner of NZ's 243km Coast To Coast adventure race. I know her well, she's a top girl and she shares exactly the same thoughts and views as I do with regards to diet (you'll probably notice that if you watch the video).



    Fairly easy on the eyes too

    Just got hold of one of the strongest Spirulina products around:



    It's a real nutritional powerhouse.

    I think a lot can be done to improve the overall health of the individual, and definately improve their chances of not having one, but honestly? No, not 100% anyway.

    Diet, exercise, and a healthy weight are not the only markers for a healthy heart. Anyone ~ Even the most healthy and successful athletes, due to genetic factors may be at risk for transient ischemic attack, stroke, or myocardial infarction. Genetic predispositions are still factors that can lead to atherosclerosis (even if the person appears healthy), and even if they low LDL levels. Doctors have been using an enzyme called Lp-Pla2 (lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2) to measure the risk of someone suffering a heart attack, as Lp-Pla2 has been linked to unstable and rupture-prone plaque in the arteries.

    Diet can no doubt help, certain supplements can be of even further benefit but if you're going to go out that way then often there's very little control you have over that.

    Anyone ever used oat milk? I've kinda drifted onto it, just bought a few cases of the stuff and actually tastes really good with muesli, shakes etc etc.

    I guess what I like about it is that it has zero cholesterol, zero saturated fat content and doesn't contain lactose. I can see myself mainly using this from now on

    Great to hear, that's what I'm talking about

    MF,

    You are a genius! what's your input of eating simple-carbohydrates before bed? Is the body burning or meaning you didn't eat throughout the day therefore you are suffering at night for it. Excess of fruits - good or bad? every once in awhile.

    Also do you eat fruits like dried figs, etc.

    Cheers

    Thanks

    My thoughts on eating simple carbohydrates before bed would steer in the direction of not to have them. Why? Simple carbohydrates are basically just sugars that are going to be quickly absorbed into the body. Any processed, refined, man-made food contains sugar. This tends to be in the form of things such as added sugar (glucose, sucralose, corn syrup, dextrose etc etc) which isn't a good thing. You'll get a nice fat spike in your blood sugar level and so your pancreas will blast out insulin in order to try and regulate your blood sugar levels. After this has all taken place, the insulin has met the sugar, they've had a few wines and a chat and gone home for the night then you get the dip in blood sugar level (3-4pm is a classic time for this to happen, cheesecake companies need to get something happening in this hour as they could make a real killing from grumpy, dopey and hungry women). Bear in mind that a well conditioned athlete technically should have enough stored glycogen to train for 3 hours in a fasted state !!

    Fruits are a little different, as fruits contain different componenets that help to slow down the absorption of the sugars. Yes, absolutely fruit does contains sugar. BUT as you eat a piece of fruit and the fibre from the banana, fibre and pectin from the apple or whatever you are eating slows down the release rate of the sugars into your bloodstream. The other advantage with eating fruit that you don't have from eating the processed food (which incidentally may even contain the same/less amount of sugar than the fruit), is that the fruit comes complete with all of its' natural cofactors, minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and phytonutrients that are in their whole, complete form for your body to absorb.

    It has been shown and proven (by a well respected Alzheimers study group in Europe using 193 healthy people ranging in age from 45 to 102), that people who eat a high intake of fruit have better cognitive and memory functioning than minimal fruit eaters because their blood contained higher antioxidant and phytonutrient plasma levels. Interesting part is that the groups that ate the HIGHEST intake of fruit also had the best blood glucose readings and the least chance of developing Onset or Type II Diabetes. Bet your last dollar if they switched the fruit out to cereal bars or another sugary energy food the results would not be the same.

    If you're hungry before bed IMO you should emphasise protein; if you did want (or feel that you need) the carbs then go for complex carbs rather than simple carbs ~ things like nuts, seeds, legumes, oatmeal etc and ones with a low glycemic load.

    Hope that all makes sense, cheers MF.
