Pug, for cycling you need the crabs and while out on training and racing the best fuel is sugar water. Load up on complex carbs two days before racing and in the race slip sugar water every 20 min or bananas.pugboy wrote:apart from the overindulgence in sugar
cutting back on the fried food makes a big difference too, pure junk calories
unfortunately too many people are mentally conditioned to feel full as a result of doubles/saheena/kfc/fries and other oil laden foods
and nothing else will make them feel full.
the mindset has to change but that aint happening the way folks gulp down soft drinks at pricesmart just because they can refill
our population surely surpasses the usa in obesity rates now
That fun fact will kill you slowly over the years if you don't burn it off.88sins wrote:zoom rader wrote:

Fun fact for you,
your body actually NEEDS carbs, and a little brown cane sugar like one level teaspoon in the morning won't kill you either (quite the opposite actually)
Our real problem is multifaceted, but the core 3 are
Trinis does REAL EAT. To bring things into perspective for you, the average Trini, in one meal, will consume 3-4x the mass in food that he/should have for the entire day, and 5-7x the calories what. & bear in mind, that isn't considering ppl that live to drink solo & cokes. The soft drink lovers are even worse off. & most ppl never give a thought as to exactly how much sugar goes into making one 8oz cup of coke. Then go sit down at a desk or on a couch or behind the wheel for a couple hours, or lie down and sleep.
Plenty ppl does eat real garbage & think because it tasting nice they eating good. we generally do not pay attention to the quality of the food we eat. This needs to change.
Trini's, especially Trini females, lazy af. For a 99% of Trini women, if doing something gonna make them even start to feel like they might break a sweat, they not doing it. they could even be home in their house with no make up & not going anywhere.
Basically, Trinis need to eat eat higher quality food, in lower amounts, and get off they ass. One quality meal a day, that's all you really need. Any hunger pains before or after can be sated with smart snack choices & beverages. a single fruit (banana, orange, apple, mango etc) & a handful of nuts or seeds & a mouth full of water. or a cup of tea or coffee. It not hard to do at all.

it is hard to train your mind to not require the fullness feeling of greasy food
but it can be done. I've eaten doubles 4 times for the year so far.
used to eat once or twice a week.screwbash wrote:cutting out is hard, i cut out the alcohol but the smoking is presha to stop. roti and bread has been replaced with almond flour bread and roti, rice replaced with veggies or cauliflower, potatoes and ground provision is once per week etc but is the doubles and the smoking is the hardest to stop.

Granted anyone can die anyday, but I do not plan to burden my kids with having to take care of me when I reach 50 or so.
I am currently 35, and it's only this year I've accepted I cannot live haywire like in my 20s. My mother has diabetes in her family and she died at 56. My father drank way too much alcohol and died at 58. I would like to reach at least 60. If I go before that, at least it wouldn't be because of my lifestyle.
In the last few years my greys have accelerated. I am aging. Men need to accept this and create an enjoyable & healthy lifestyle to suit their age. And yes, healthy can be enjoyable.
