Alcohol For Athletes?

Drinking Alcohol🍺🍷🍹…GOOD ➕ or BAD ➖ for the ATHLETE❓❓

I NEVER like to be black or white with anything, but I do like people to be informed and then they can make their own decision on if it fits for them or not.😜😜💪

Here are some facts: 1⃣ Alcohol 🍷holds very little nutritional value to the athlete. It is high 🔺 in calories ( about 100 calories in 1.5 oz shot glass) and is unable to be converted to glycogen and typically gets stored as fat😝 2⃣  Your body stops absorbing other nutrients or food 🍴while trying to convert alcohol and get it out of the body, so your food ( nourishment) goes to waste 3⃣ you need to increase your conditioning to keep up with extra empty calories 4⃣ All the health benefits that alcohol may or may not have can be obtained from other foods 🍊 or herbs 🍃 without the negatives mentioned in this post 5⃣ it inhibits the usage or absorption vital nutrients  B1, B12, folic acid and zinc.   6⃣ consuming up to 5 drinks in one night 🌙 can affect you for up to three days and two consecutive nights 🌙 of this can affect you for up to five days😳 7⃣ it affects your ability form memories ( compromises the hippocampus) which means it slows 🐢 your learning process 🙀 bc if you can not form new memories.. You can not learn. 8⃣ It dehydrates 💧 you, and as a result it inhibits your performance 🏃conversion of energy ♻️ , and slows your bodies ability to heal itself 9⃣ decreases 🔻your bodies secretion of HGH by up to 70 percent ( helps up repair and build muscle).❗️🔟 am I saying do not drink ever?  No.  I am saying be informed and decide if it works for you. And how often you can afford to😉

  1. Good tips! I’m still learning how best to haldne my email. I find it helps if I set a specific block of time, and/or have specific goals (for example, replying to a certain number of emails).I think gmail is really the best tool for all your tips, especially with their new inbox systems. I have it sort my unread emails by whether they’re important or not, so that newsletters and such are further down and I can read them at my leisure.One thing I still struggle with is a system for saving emails to deal with later. What I’ve been doing is skimming them, then marking them as still unread. That way I know there’s still an action I need to take before I delete/file/whatever.[]Bria Reply:September 8th, 2011 at 12:46 pmHi Keri-Yes, these tips do work well with gmail accounts. One suggestion to answer your question is to create two files- one is To Do Later Today and the other is To Do This Week . Then, save 30 min at the end of each day to attend to the later today file and save some time on Friday to attend to the To Do This Week . This has worked well for me and for my clients. Good luck!Bria[]
