"Science based" "Science approved" "Evidence based" It all sounds like it's GOT to work right? But just because something 'should work' doesn't necessarily mean it WILL work for YOU! One of the things I (and other trainers I've been lucky enough to surround myself with in @639pt ) pride ourselves on is that, not matter what research emerges to suggest a particular nutritional strategy or exercise prescription will yield, nothing beats individualisation. Science should only serve as a guiding force for decisions, not dictate them. Making a diet that works for everyone just isn't realistic. Neither is an exercise programme. Ensuring a plan is catered to your needs, movement capabilities and lifestyle give fuel to the fire that'll keep you going. Individualisation and adaptation give way for real life results rather than lab results 🤓 Forget the lab coats, get results the way that works best for you, YOUR way
This is the Healthy eating pyramid from Willet, W.C. et al., Eat, Drink and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating. This pyramid is based on the biochemical needs of the human body. In contrast with the pyramid from the USDA which is heavily based on commercial needs, this pyramid can be labeled as more trusthworthy. Está es la Piramide nutricional hecha por Willet, W. et al, de The Harvard Medical School. A diferencia de la piramide hecha por la USDA (U.S. Deparment of Agriculture), la pirámide de Harvard esta basada en los requerimientos bioquímicos del cuerpo y no en conveniencias comerciales.

"A hallmark of science is setting out to discover one thing and then discovering something else." • Last night I listened to a podcast of a conversation between Liz Gilbert and Ann Patchett at the New York Public Library in which they discussed (amongst many things) the particular combination of women and science in books. It made me think about why I loved this book but also why I loved 'The Signature of All Things' and why I always want to make my female characters scientists of one kind or another. And where I landed today is that the simplest explanation is usually the right one: my mum is an electrical engineer. I love thinking that my mum, and everything I know about who she is, has been wonderfully tangled with literature and womanhood and beauty in my mind, even though her profession sometimes feels like the polar opposite of my interests (the only test I failed in high school was on electricity). I loved this book and I loved the podcast, and I'm grateful for the insight (and more than all of that, I love and am grateful to my mum). • • • #book#books#reading#amreading#booklove#booklover#booknerd#bookworm#bookstagram#instabook#igreads#igbooks#chemistry#weikewang#science#womenandscience#literature#elizabethgilbert#annpatchett
#saturdaymorning so busy in #thebigwoods with #massshootinggeneration and #trump’srussia so doing a quick #randomactsofkindnessday moment and donating to #randybryce#wisconsin because hasn’t taken $300,000 from the #nra in darkmoney. Also #conerlamb in #pennsylvania#marine attorney#Pennsylvaniauniversity. People want lobby money out of elections so #thingsidliketoseeimpeached I’d also like to see go to prison for treason: the #gop. Republicans are greedy, self righteous, and stupid. Kudos to younger generations for standing up to you and NRA. vote them out and pick these young education candidates! Kudos also late but better late than never #shawnwhite who turned #snowboarding into the most exciting sport in the world (sorry gamers you get carpel tunnel but they could die) so pony up and donate to real candidates whatever country you are in. I’d vote for White to be embassador to #sweden where those pesky Swedes keep pushing for #science#technology#art#music writing with #nobelpeaceprize. White could just say no to places not doing everything to stop #climatechange —starting with USA! So missed valentines day thinking about all the people who have lost someone to gun violence and teachers leaving profession because they have families of their own and could be forced to chose to save students or live to lobby against nra and own families. Hard times hard choices : Love is the answer so let’s march and give to organizations to protect our rights only one vote needed to save #internet privacy so contact your reps now. Go to their offices. Mine is hiding from me....#aclu #naacp unions #endcitizensunited#equality#transparency peace thru political #cartoon and yes, Flit has major crush on mueller and fbi. Yes you made some mistakes but it is obvious our intelligence community wants to serve and protect from Russia and hookers apparently. Aah america, good to see us embrace political change and not apathy- new world coming soon!
