The importance of nutrition...

Postby d3funct » Fri Oct 22, 2010 12:17 pm

Wow, the importance of a good breakfast has really hit home for me today.

See, a couple of days ago we ran out of Weetbix, as it wasnt payday, I have to wait till tomorrow to replenish my breakfast. I normally have 4 biscuits, a banana and skim milk, thats my staple breakfast of champions.

The past couple of days, I have really only had a couple of bananas before going out riding. Yesterday, I did feel a little lathargic, but I persevered and completed my 20km in under an hour - just.
Today though, I couldnt do it, my muscles werent energized and I had to turn back, midway though, before I end up collapsing or something.

I felt devastated, but it has really hit home for me, how important it is to the bodies performance, to eat a good breakfast.

Just thought I'd share :)

On the plus side, after a month of healthy eating and excersise, I found out today my cholesterol has gone down from 6.9 to 5.7; my GP and I are happy :D

I ride 10km to work each morning before breakfast - just a cup of coffee before I jump on the bike!

I eat breakfast(muesli & a banana) once I get to work. I would start fading pretty quickly though if I didn't eat anything until lunch time.

I pity any fool who runs out of weetbix. At least you didnt defect to vita-brits or something weak like that.
