What are carbohydrates and how do they affect the body? (Part 1 on carbs)

What are carbohydrates and how do they affect the body? (Part 1 on carbs)

I am so glad you stumbled onto my article! One thing I notice a lot while working with my clients is that many people have never been taught the basics of nutrition. I mean, how the heck are people supposed to know what to eat when they have never been taught or shown the very basics- like what macro-nutrients like carbs or protein are? So I put together a 5 part series about carbohydrates. In it you will learn what carbohydrates are, what the glycemic index is, what glycemic load means, how to use carb cycling to burn more fat, and finally how to use carbohydrates to help you build more muscle mass. At different times I eat different amounts of carbs; if I am trying to get leaner and shed fat then I start lowering my carb intake (except for after workouts), but when I am looking to bulk up or get stronger I start eating more carbs to fuel my gains. Carbs aren’t good or bad and they have positives and drawbacks. The facts remain though: that carbs are a required part of the diet, they are the bodies preferred source of energy, and they help to spare muscle breakdown, and they taste good! So go ahead, get started learning how to make a better you today.   Don’t regret tomorrow what you could do today! #quote #growthhacking #success #motivation pic.twitter.com/Lq1hF1GvSp — Makeyourbestself.com (@MakeYourBstSelf) December 30, 2015   Carbohydrates are the body’s primary source of energy.

Love: mental disorder, key to happiness, or just crazy?

Love: mental disorder, key to happiness, or just crazy?

Love is probably the most complicated emotion on earth; love is opposite- on the spectrum of emotions- to fear, and love has often caused or contributed to many of the greatest advancements and accomplishments of mankind. Just a few of the definitions for the word love are: an intense feeling of deep affection, a deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone, or a great interest and pleasure in something. But, do any of these definitions really do justice to a word that can reduce the strongest man to tears, or turn an otherwise rational woman into an emotional train-wreck?   Many different opinions exist on what describes love best, and science has even been able to show many interesting things about love. Brain scans reveal that love can stimulate the same parts of the brain as people who have addictions to drugs, and we have also learned that love creates a series of neurotransmitter and hormone releases that can affect our overall mood. Some psychologists believe that love is actually a mental disorder, and most of us have probably felt this way at times in our own lives as well. Ever pulled one of these sort of stunts below…?   Some Buddhists believe that love is a bad thing, because it is a form of attachment-and attachment causes suffering. Surely though, most everyone can agree: love is one of humanity’s biggest displays of the human condition. Few things can bring out the vulnerability and emotions of a person like love can.   Love is enough to make you feel insane, but does it make you insane? Love has the potential to...
This is your life, and it is ending one minute at a time

This is your life, and it is ending one minute at a time

You are dying right now: this very second; you are getting older; your cells are dividing rapidly and nearing their maximum renewal rate; no one knows how much time they have left on earth. How does it make you feel to think about the fact that our time on earth is limited? How does it feel to know that our life is not guaranteed and that it could end at any moment? It should make you feel sad for the life you have wasted, it should make you want to consider what you are doing with that life right now. Most of us repress the knowledge that we will die someday, instead putting off dealing with this troubling fact until we get sick or get old enough to car. The thing is… we all have to face the facts at some point: we are going to die. If death is a guarantee, then shouldn’t we do our best to live a life that- at very least, provides us with some comfort from our death bed: death knowing that we did all we could, did our best, and at least we gave it one hell of a run. In the words of Steve Jobs “… almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to...
