Check out my FAQ, love. There’s a section on altering body composition. In fact, I believe it’s the first section. I’m still working on updating my FAQ and turning it into separate pages, but for now that should be sufficient amount of information for you <3
8 Benefits of Spinach
1. Loaded with Vitamins: like A, K, D, and E and a host of trace minerals.
2. Good Source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids: the kind most of us need in North America.
3. Anti-Cancer and Anti-Inflammatory Antioxidants: Researchers have identified more than a dozen different flavonoid compounds in spinach that function as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agents. In a recent study on the relationship between risk of prostate cancer and vegetable intake (including such healthy vegetables as broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts) only spinach showed evidence of significant protection against the occurrence of aggressive prostate cancer.
4. Alkalizes the Body: All those minerals helps to balance off the highly acid diet which most of us subject our bodies to and which drains our energy, increases obesity and a creates host of other health problems.
5. Nourishes the Eyes: The carotenoids found in spinach protect against eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
6. Strengthens the Bones: One cup of fresh spinach (or 1/6 cup of cooked spinach) contains TWICE your daily vitamin K needs. This along with the calcium and magnesium in spinach is essential to maintain healthy bones.
7. Perfect for Green Smoothies and Salads: Organic pre-washed spinach is now readily available in most grocery stores. If you haven’t yet tried a green smoothie yet and think they might taste yucky then try one with the main ingredient as spinach. Spinach is so sweet, we guarantee you will be impressed.
8. Spinach is FRESH! Studies have shown that even the artificial light in the grocery store shining on those plastic tubs of spinach can actually help keep the leaves from spoiling. This indicates the spinach is still metabolically active and fresh. (x)
…Gonna eat some spinaches
aaaaaaand it’s yummy!
Anytime love! :) Well when I said cardio day I meant, just switch up your days. It looked like you were doing M-run. TWTH- pilates F- run. Try splitting it up like M- pilates T- run W- pilates TH- run F- pilates. ya know? You want your muscles to “rest” after a strength day. If you want to do a little ten min workout on your rest day that should be fine. An active rest day then. Just make sure it’s a light workout cause your body really does need to recuperate :)
For future reference and for anyone else who’s curious, I will ALWAYS answer your questions (unless they’re specifically answered in my FAQ). That’s what I’m here for - to help and motivate yous guys <3
