Nutrition And Recovery

Hello my name is Tina. I am a nutritionist and focused on creating health and balance from the inside out. I have been a vegan and contribute to several health sites.

In the US, nutritional standards and recommendations are established jointly by the US Department of Agriculture and US Department of Health and Human Services. Dietary and physical activity guidelines from the USDA are presented in the concept of MyPlate, which superseded the food pyramid, which replaced the Four Food Groups. The Senate committee currently responsible for oversight of the USDA is the Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee. Committee hearings are often televised on C-SPAN.

Parts 1 & 2 of this series covered ten significant and critical aspects of nutrition building muscle mass. In this part 3 article I will expand on a few of those tips and offer additional suggestions to help you achieve the physique that you desire.

In Canada, ‘Dietitian’ and ‘Registered Dietitian’ are protected professional titles. Each province has an independent professional college (for example, The College of Dietitians of Ontario) which is responsible for protecting the public and regulating the profession. The colleges are entirely funded from licensing fees collected from dietitians. Each college must have both public and professional members, and is empowered to investigate and censure (when malpractice/negligence is found) members of the profession who breach either their scope of practice or harm/endanger the health of a patient/client, and receive a complaint against them from a member of the public or another health care professional. To practice as a registered dietitian within a province, a dietitian must register with the college and obtain a license. The activities of the college are governed by legislation passed by the provincial government. It is the presence of this regulatory body which distinguishes registered dietitians from nutritionists in Canada, the regulations for which vary by province.

In the United States, the Nutritional Facts label lists the percentage supplied that is recommended to be met, or to be limited, in one day of human nutrients based on a daily diet of 2,000 kilocalories (kcal).

What I found that works well for me is to cook all my foods at once. I like to cook enough food to last a few days all at the same time, and store it all in the fridge. Another way I make meal frequency easy is to pack all my meals for the day the night before. That way all I have to do is heat them up in the microwave.
The first meal of the day for me consists of egg whites and oats. If you’re not trying to lose weight I would recommend adding a few egg yolks in the mix, it tastes better and adds nutrition. The next three meals are about the same consisting of chicken, brown rice, olive oil, and broccoli. If you don’t like to eat the same foods all the, I recommend switching to a different meat or carbohydrate source. The next meal usually is a protein shake before the gym, and the same after. Later on I have another meal like the three earlier in the day, and a protein shake before bed.

Nutritional science investigates the metabolic and physiological responses of the body to diet. With advances in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, nutritional immunology, molecular medicine and genetics, the study of nutrition is increasingly concerned with metabolism and metabolic pathways: the sequences of biochemical steps through which substances in living things change from one form to another.

Alcoholic beverages are under the jurisdiction of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), and as of 2012 are not required to have a nutrition facts label. Since at least 2003, consumer groups have lobbied the TTB to require labelling disclosing relevant information. Marketing terms such as “light” for beers and wines, and “table wine” do have specific requirements, and in certain cases alcohol content must be disclosed.
