5 Nutrients To Help Overcome Addiction

Thursday, March 10th, 2022
Nutrients To Help Overcome Addiction

Over the years, I’ve been addicted to various substances. It was only natural for me to seek fast relief while my brain was malfunctioning and I was suffering from mental illness. Until I could find better, long-term, sustainable answers, I had to rely on substances outside my body – even if they weren’t beneficial for me. I set out to learn as much as I can about nutrients to help overcome addiction, and between research studies and feedback from recovering addicts, I attempted to put together this list to help others.

At the time, I honestly felt that I didn’t have any other options. And I’m sure there are a lot of other folks out there who are dealing with the same issue. You might feel as if you require something to help you get through the day. Then there’s something more to do to get to sleep at night.

It could be alcohol, cigarettes, cannabis, or more potent drugs like cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamines. Perhaps you’re using antidepressants or benzodiazepines on a prescription basis. You may have no idea how you would survive without them.

You can do it, and I’m here to tell you that you can.

How Much Water Should You Drink?

Monday, February 14th, 2022
Dr. John Berardi

Since the late 1990’s Dr. John Berardi has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition-related conferences; and published countless articles online.

His first articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago provided me with the basis for everything I knew about nutrition in my early years as a personal trainer. Now I will turn some of that knowledge over to you in the form of Nutrition Tips written by Dr. Berardi himself.

Today’s Topic – How Much Water You Should Drink

Water is important for maintaining proper health.

Drink Water

I have always advocated drinking at least a gallon of water a day, but then some media outlets over-hype the fact that drinking too much water can make you sick, so people sometimes dismiss the importance of drinking water. So whatever you believe, the all-important question must still be answered, how much water should you drink?

I think it all had to do with some radio contest to see who could drink the most water in the shortest amount of time. The fact is that you would have to drink many gallons of water in a short time frame to make yourself sick.

Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should basically drink as much water as possible each day.

Top 5 Post-Workout Foods

Friday, February 4th, 2022

Eating immediately following a workout isn’t always the first thing on your mind, but it’s important to replenish fluids and at least some nutrients soon after working out. You certainly shouldn’t sit down to a big meal of post-workout foods, but a small to moderately-sized meal is essential to your body’s recovery process. Without sufficient replenishment, you can dip down into low energy, moodiness, and compromise muscle recovery.

How Much Fat Should I Eat in a Day?

Thursday, January 13th, 2022
How Much Fat Should I Eat

Almost all nutritious food has fat in it. Fats are used for a variety of purposes including transporting vital nutrients to cells, assisting in the digestion of certain foods, and providing us with energy in times of nutrient depletion. To be healthy you can’t, and shouldn’t, stay away from fat. Still, we find ourselves asking: how much fat should I eat in a day? What are the pros and cons of eating low-fat or fat-free? What kind of fat should I be eating most? Which foods provide healthy fats and which foods will kill me quickly?

As with my other articles how many carbs to eat in a day and how much protein to eat in a day, all depends on a couple of factors:

Butter
  • current bodyweight
  • dietary goals
  • cholesterol profile
  • activity level
  • lifestyle
  • time of day

The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary fat to 30% of total calories. Take into consideration, however, if you are overweight, need to lower blood cholesterol, or have another medical concern, you may need less than the recommended 30%.

Let’s stop to consider all of the factors that go into determining how much fat we should eat.
