PRE & POST WORKOUTS NUTRITION TIPS!
 
The importance of post workout nutrition cannot be undermined. In order to recover properly from workouts the body needs essential nutrients to rebuild and re-gain energy. Further, eating too much food, or the wrong food before exercise can impair the performance and can reduce the benefits of exercise but it can also weaken the immune system, increase the likelihood of injury, cause hypoglycemia (drop in blood sugar) and reduce energy and performance during subsequent exercise sessions. The quicker the proper nutrients after workout are taken, the more effective the recovery will be.

OVERWEIGHT CHILDREN - WHAT CAN BE DONE
 
An unhealthy diet combined with a lack of exercise are the main causes of childhood obesity. It’s fare to say though that not all obese infants become obese children, and not all obese children become obese adults, however, researches carried out by universities and scientists around the world have confirmed that there is a greater likelihood that obesity beginning even in early childhood will persist through adulthood. Children who are obese are at risk for a wide range of health problems such as type 2 diabetes and many have high cholesterol and blood pressure levels, which put them at greater risk for heart disease. Obesity is present when total body weight is more than 25 percent fat in boys and more than 32 percent fat in girls.
