  • 3 Supplements The Older Generation Need To Be Taking Even thinking about our health doesn't happen a great deal in youth and certainly old age is a concept that is so far away as to be effectively non existent. We are fortunate that health and fitness relative to our lifestyle, usually including physical activity of various kinds is virtually automatic when we are young. As we travel through middle age to old age life gets in the way on an increasing basis and it requires an effort to maintain good health and exercise, although still very desirable and definitely to be encouraged, often becomes more difficult or impractical. Appropriate exercise in later years will be dealt with in a separate article but here are three supplements that are very beneficial as the aging process inevitably slows us down. In fact, the following supplements are to be recommended for all ages and are complementary to a balanced diet and exercise but can be considered basic supplementation for seniors.

  • What You Need To Know About Keto

    The ketogenic or ‘keto’ diet is more than just a low-carb diet, it’s actually a high fat diet. The goal of the ketogenic diet is to flip your body’s metabolism from using carbohydrates as the primary energy source, to instead use fats for fuel. Once carbohydrate levels are lowered in our bodies, we enter a natural metabolic state known as ketosis, where we begin to produce ketones by breaking down fats in the liver.

    In a typical ketogenic diet about 70-75% of all calories come from fat. It differs from low-carb Atkinson paleo diets because the protein levels are moderate, with only 20-25% of calories consumed attributed to protein. Carbohydrate intake is kept very low – typically less than 30-50g per day (or less than 10% of all calories).

  • Workout Nutrition Explained This area of discussion over the last 20 years has been shrouded with information and assumption. When I first started training around 2001, the “Anabolic Window” was something that was thrown around a lot. It was though that if you didn’t consume the necessary food or nutrition within 20 minutes after the end of your workout or else your entire workout would go to waste!
