I Have to agree, there is a plethora of different regimes, diet, exercise etc out there. What they do not consider is that we are all individual and unique, not to mention that it does not always acknowledge those with underlying health problems, time constraints, lack of funds to purchase such a lifestyle.
I often find it can be a one-size-fits all with a generic approach, albeit often backed with evidence-based information and generally gives a concise overview but the downfall is, that we are not all generic.
Over the years I have been a fitness freak, and tried out many different regimes with respect to diet, exercise and sleep. Not to mention stress, for instance, which releases an abundance of cortisol, stress hormone, known to have a variety of perceptual disturbance.
The conclusion I came to was, study the area of choice and cross-reference with a multitude of other sources. Then apply it to ourselves, and realistically, what we can actually do consistently on a day-to-basis.
It is time consuming, however, it is an important component of life for it requires one to be able to delegate specific times as to when it fits in with work/life balance commitments. I definitely have accumulated a comftable level of self-sustainability with respect to health and awareness. But I am human, and i make mistakes, and concurrently neglect myself by something as simple as not valuing sleep, fluid intake and general cardio exercise.
Reduce those simple sugars for complex carbohydrates to sustain glucose, and consueqently, glycogen, to fuel our muscless and allow for better oxygen transportation. Sleep is so essential to allow the neurons and exposure to stimuli to amalgamte and process the behavioural response in us, so as to better know how address such situations. This is autonomous and we are often unaware. Deep sleep accounts for 20-40% of sleep; hence why it is so important to get sleep.
Please, please, unless you have a deficiency, do not buy into the facade of multi-vitamins unless they are - magnesium, zinc, cod liver oil and cranberry extract for ladies.
A multi vitamin is not absorbed in the same manner, as when we absorb vitamins from food. WE NEED digestion to co-occur with the intake of minerals and vitamins!
