Performance Nutrition – Perform Better, Every Day of the Week!

By Ben T Coomber

Nutrition is often the unsung hero of increasing an individual’s performance. In fact, I would go as far as to say that without good nutrition you cannot even begin to successfully increase your levels of performance, whether it’s in daily life or in sport. There are many factors, from a nutritional perspective, that need to be in place even before you can start to increase your performance.

Try increasing your recovery ability with impaired gut function. You will not even begin to absorb all the high quality food you might be consuming and the expensive supplements that you are knocking back all because your nutrition is not in check. So when it comes to performance nutrition it might actually be a case of stripping the individual back to basics. So does the person in question have good nutrient absorption, a strong immune system, an adequate sleep pattern and enough de-stress time? If not then what are the chances of them increasing their levels of performance through increases in training volume and frequency. This is usually when players get ill, crash and burn, all because their nutrition and lifestyle are not in check.

So performance nutrition might in fact be a cloak and dagger word, but there are obviously factors of performance nutrition that do lend themselves to increases in someone’s physical performance. So let’s say we are working with an individual that has all the above in check, then we can look to increase their physical and mental performance with the aid of nutrition, including food and supplements. Of course there are many ways to coax the body into the environment that you want it to perform in. Specific food and specific supplements at certain times can signal the body to perform in a certain way. A perfect example of this would be during the post workout recovery period, a time where nutrients are partitioned in a certain way, when provided in the right proportions, into the muscle to preferentially induce a greater anabolic and recovery effect.

So really the above is a prime example of performance nutrition. Such a nutritional strategy thus increases someone’s performance through increasing the body’s ability to recovery quicker. After all recover quicker and we can train sooner, which then, over time, leads to greater overall increases in performance as more training practice has been performed. But what must not happen in performance nutrition strategies is skip one phase before the other. There is no point in giving an individual X, Y and Z supplement if their gut health is currently impaired. Much of the consumed supplements might be going to waste through poor absorption, so it would make sense to repair the gut, then build on top of that, as in theory you will then observe two increases in performance, one from re-building the gut and another from the targeted supplement use.

So of course there is a place for fancy supplements and specific foods to increase the performance of an individual at the right times, but there are essentials that have to be in place first. In essence you could liken performance nutrition to the art of building a house. Rock solid foundations have to be in place first before you build your fancy architectural sculpture on top. Now that is the art of performance nutrition.

Dr. Seigal’s Cookie Diet A Review

Who knew that you could lose weight by eating cookies? This is a million dollar revelation akin to knowing the meaning of life! Let’s take a look at these amazing cookies and what they could mean for your plan to lose weight.

How the Dr. Seigal Cookie Plan Works

According to Dr. Seigal, who has been using his famous weight loss cookies in his Florida medical practice for over 25 years, it is true that cookies will help you lose weight. But, not just any cookies.

Dr. Seigal’s cookies combine a formula of nutrients that curb the appetite enough so that you don’t feel deprived and are satisfied. The premise is that you will lose weight even if your doctor adds a couple hundred calories to your daily intake with these cookies.

The plan is simple. You are asked to eat 6 cookies a day (who wouldn’t like that?). The cookies are eaten at breakfast, lunch, and for snacks. At dinnertime, you will eat a sensible, healthy meal.

There is a 3-step process in which your plan is designed. First, you complete a 28-day program to determine how many calories you need to maintain a healthy weight. This free assessment will show you how to gauge your calories for roughly a month.

After you are finished, you go back to the website and plug in your results. From there, you will be given a daily calorie amount that includes your cookies. Dr. Seigal suggests 1,000 calories for weight loss but this is the bare minimum to keep the body functioning. Your personal physician may suggest a higher number. Always defer to your physician as you do this plan.

Follow the plan until you reach your goal weight. Then, you can use the cookies and other products in a maintenance program to continue to maintain a healthy weight.

People have reported that the weight falls off of them just by eating cookies and a sensible dinner. The cookies are good and come in a variety of flavors; blueberry, banana, coconut, oatmeal raisin, and chocolate. There are also other products like shakes, enriched water, and vitamin pills to help enhance weight loss. All of the products in the line contain the same appetite suppressant formula that is found in the cookies.

Here’s the Skinny

This plan can add up financially right away. A full month of cookies can cost almost $300, and this amount doesn’t include what you will pay to provide your one meal a day.  Also, like many diet programs, this plan does not mention exercise. Be sure to include regular physical fitness activities to balance your body and weight loss.

If you enjoy yummy cookies, and like a structured diet plan, Dr. Seigal’s cookie diet can help you lose weight and have that cookie, too.
