Food For Energy - Protein by YtysVynsan

Intro,
Food is the most important thing in my life, with the right food's we can keep going and going. We can get the Get Up' and Go feeling when we wake up. This could help you out a lot in life! From getting to work on time to getting up for school or something. Well heres the main information for this part of my posting strip!

PROTEIN

Adequate protein intake is essential for that 'get up and go' energy. Proteins are the building blocks of the body, and the stuff from which all our cell are made. We need protein, not only to repairing wear and tears, but also energy. If you are not getting enough the effects will show in fatigue, irritability and inability to concentrate. Unless you are low on energy due to anemia, or going though a particularly stressful time (in which case you could do with vitamin B found in meat, especially liver which will be covered later on in a different post), it is healthier to get your protein from other sources. The main foods, apart from meat, that are rich in protein are: fish, eggs. milk. cheese, nuts, wholemeal bread, pulses (e.g beans), fruit and vegetables.

You might also like to try tofu, made from soya beans, one of the richest forms of protein there is. And nice taste as well :)

Next Part of YtysVynsan's - Food for energy is Vitamins and which you need to help you out!

[Smart] YtysVynsan - Food for Energy Part Two

Food for Energy - Vitamins Part 2

VITAMINS

We shall be short on energy if we neglect to make sure we are getting enough vitamins, especially vitamin 'b'. The following list will give you some idea of how the body uses them, which foods contain them, and the signs of deficiency.

VITAMIN B
The most complex of all the vitamins. B vitamins are particularly important for our purposes because most of them are concerned with the ability of the body to convert food we eat into energy to power the body. They are also essential for maintaining the nervous system. Deficiency of folic-acid and b12 could also cause severe anaemia, for they are needed for the production of red blood cells.

More Detail
B1 (thiamin)
Essential for growth, health of muscles and nerves and the conversion of carbohydrates into energy. Signs of Deficiency: fatigue, irritability, depression, loss of appetite, poor digestion. Very commonly also, dark shadows under the eyes. Natural sources: meat, fish, beans, nuts, seafood, whole grains, pulses, potatoes (Not chips), wheatgerm, yeast.
B2 (riboflavin)
Extracts energy from proteins and carbohydrates. Essential for growth, health of skin, eyes, and red blood cells, and for general wellbeing. Signs of Deficiency : lack of stamina, dry hair and skin. Natural Sources: meat, fish, soya beans, eggs, vegetables, poultry, milk, cheese, yeast, vegetables,.
B3 (niacin)
Essential for growth, digestion of carbohydrates and health of the nervous system and skin. Signs of Deficiency: headaches, insomnia, irritability. Natural Sources: lean meat, fish, whole grains, poultry, nuts, potatoes (not chips), dried fruit.
B6 (pyridoxine)
Essential for the body's use of protein and the health of the nerves, skin and muscles. Helps to maintain good circulation and to prevent heart disease. Boosts the immunes system. Signs of Deficiency: irritability, shakiness, insomnia, depression, anxiety. Natural Sources: meat, fish, poultry, whole grain, green vegetables, milk, fruit.
Folic-Acid
Essential for growth, healthy blood and fertility. Signs of Deficiency: anaemia, weakness, fatigue, depression. Natural Sources: liver, kidneys, eggs, nuts, wheatgerm flour, lentils.
Biotin
Needed for healthy nerves, skin, and muscles. Signs of Deficiency: hair loss, eczema. Natural Sources : Liver, kidneys, eggs, nuts, wheatgerm.
B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Converts energy from proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Signs of Deficiency : dry skin and hair. Natural Sources: Most foods contain it.
B12 (cyanocobalamin)
Essential for body's conversion of protein and for the health of nerves, blood and skin.
Signs of Deficiency: fatigue, anaemia. Natural Sources: Liver, poultry, lean meat, eggs, yeast, milk, cheese. Not Found in vegetables. Vegans therefore need to be take B12 supplements.

Since the b vitamins are water-soluble and cannot be stored in the body, we have ensure the we get enough of them everyday. It is important to take the whole complex rather than just one or two of them.

The other vitamins are not as crucial as vitamins b for supplying energy, but nevertheless essential for maintaining us a good health. Vitamin c is particularly important for maintaining resistance to disease, and speeding recovery time from illness. It is mostly found in fresh fruit.

Food for Energy - Part C Minerals By YtysVynsan

MINERALS
If you are low on energy this could be due to minerals rather than vitamins deficiency. Minerals can not be manufactured in the body. They age present in the soil as inorganic elements and are absorbed by plants, which are then eaten by animals. Thus, we get out supply of minerals from plant and animal foods. Our bodies need more than 15 different minerals for health, growth, and energy, and deficiency in some of these can result in fatigue, depression, emotional tension or anaemia. The minerals you are most likely to be deficient in are iron and calcium. The others are so widely found in foods that deficiencies are rare. Magnesium deficiency can, however, be caused by drinking too much alcohol. (which i find crap)

Iron
Iron deficiency anaemia has been recognized by the department of health as being very common, especially among women. When this occurs, cells are starved of oxygen, causing one to feel tired, irritable, or depressed. Women who have very heavy blood loss during menstruation may need to take iron supplements to compensate. Foods rich in iron are meats, kidneys, wholegrain cereals, spinach, lentils, dried apricots, prunes and peanut butter. Note that one should not take iron supplements if one has a bacterial infection, for iron can actually feed the bacteria. Check with your doctor.

Calcium
A deficiency of calcium disturbs the functions of muscles and nerve cells, with the result that we may be excitable, unable to relax or sleep properly. Calcium is found in dairy products such as fish,vegetables, and eggs. Calcium pantothenate is particularly useful for counteracting the effects of stress when we going though a bad time. A combination of liver, leafy, green vegetables, wheatgerm, milk, and calcium pantothenate makes the idea anti-stress diet- plus, of course, extra b and c vitamins. (Works Trust me)

Zinc and Selenium
These are essential for good immunity. Zinc is found in seafood, liver, mushrooms, soya beans, spinach and sunflower seeds. It is lost through alcohol abuse (Most of us) and (for me) over-indulgence in s*x (Forum got filter?) to the point of orgas*m. So Men, if your s*x life is getting hectic make sure you include the about foods in your diet - or take 15mg of zinc as a supplement. Selenium was shown by the research done in 1984(Old) to be the most potent anti-carcinogen there is. But be careful not to take to much of it, as it can be highly toxic if taken to excess. Selenium is found in fish, whole grains, cereals and wholewheat bread, milk, butter, garlic (got to like garlic

), fruit and nuts.

I'll take veggie pills but that's as close to vegetables (except radishes, carrots, and lettuce). and for the love of the god ketchup is crapped-up tomato and YES I can't stand tomatoes unless their processed into ketchup.

Food for Energy Part 4 - Under-eating By YtysVynsan

UNDER-EATING
Don't expect to be brimming over with energy if you are not supplying your body-machine with enough fuel, and fuel of the right kind. (We shall be discussing what we mean by the 'right kinds of food later Wink) It may be that you have lost your appetite because you have been ill, are suffering from depression or are in a crisis situation. Or it may be that you are so busy rushing around that you don't give yourself time for refueling. Perhaps, by the end of a hard day you just can't be bothered to cook a decent meal for yourself and send out for a pizza (99.9% of us Tongue). One of the things that people who are living alone have to watch is the feeling that there is not much point in preparing a nice dinner if you don't have someone to share it with. You do deserver good food weather you have someone to share it with or not and choosing to nourish yourself properly is in fact a statement of your self-worth, as well as an investment in your wellbeing.

Preparing a decent meal doesn't have to be time-consuming. Avocados, for example (or a pizza) are immensely nourishing and all you have to do is cut them in half and add a dressing (Pizza). Soups too are nutritious, and will cook themselves whilst you are on the computer reading this. Eggs, cheese, bread, salads, fruit and yoghurts take no time at all to prepare and will keep you supplied with the necessary vitamins and minerals.

Food for Energy Part 5 - Over-eating By YtysVynsan

OVER-EATING
It is move likely, though, that you may be eating to much. Unless you have a job that is physically demanding it is easy to meet your calories requirements. (dont ask me what the calorie requirements are they are always changing from person to person) Excess calories, unless burnt up in exercise, will make you overweight, which apparently is case with 35+% of the population. Increasing your energy, for you, may there fore mean that you have to lose weight. As well as putting strain on the heart and other internal organs us to varicose veins, and back trouble, being overweight saps our energy simply because there is more of us to drag around. Not only that, but we don;t look so good either, and well when we know we look good most of us tend to feel good to Smiley. So monitor your weight on the scales when you remember and try to not obsessive about it.If you want more energy if you over-eat then lose a few kilos. How to lose weight isn't my thing so look at some health magazines and remember not to stop eating and eating the right food's can help you lose that weight.

P.S Sorry about some many posts.
