Are You Eating Too Much Sugar?

In the past, people were trying to fight the war on fat by avoiding dietary fats at all costs. However, current research explains how eating fat (the right kinds- in moderation) can actually help you reduce body fat and promote health benefits, but this has not been enough to change the minds of consumers. To this day many people fear eating fat and in turn, we have oversaturated our diets with carbohydrates and are eating too much sugar. We have all heard that sugar is bad for you- but do you know why? Read below to learn more.

Low/No Nutritional Value- Food that is high in sugar is usually high in carbohydrates… and not much else. Candy and pastries are the perfect example of this. Choose for a well-balanced meal option with protein, carbs and fat that will be packed with the proper nutrients you needs and not simply additional calories.

Spike in Insulin Release- Each time we eat, our body releases insulin. The higher the amount of sugars in the meal, the higher the insulin release. Once your insulin levels come down from a spike you may get that tired and groggy feeling. Think of a sugar rush followed by a crash which makes you want to reach for… more sugar. Instead of reaching for more sugar, choose a sugar free beverage like Celsius that will provide you with healthy energy and no sugar crash.

Causes Cravings- Sugar filled food may taste great, but they are horrible at aiding in satiety. You may notice that after a carbohydrate heavy meal you are hungry within the hour. Your body will want you to eat something that is rich in carbohydrates/sugars for an immediate fuel source. This happens even if you have plenty of excess calories for the body to burn. Try pairing your carbohydrate meals with fats, protein and fiber to help buffer the insulin release and slow down the digestion process.

Risk of heart disease, diabetes, weight gain- Besides making food taste good, eating too much sugar has little to no benefits and has been linked to several health concerns. Carbohydrates/sugar are the bodies preferred source of fuel. If we keep eating too much sugar, it will eventually have to convert into excess body fat. The more body fat an individual carries, the higher the risk for long term health issues. Learn how to limit your sugar intake and monitor your food choices in order to prevent any preliminary health problems that may arise.

So How Much is Too Much?

The majority of Americans are eating too much sugar and many are not even be aware! The American Heart Association released guidelines suggesting people limit sugar intake since excess sugar in the diet converts into fat. This alone can put people at higher risks for heart disease. Women should eat less than 6 teaspoons of sugar a day (100 calories); men are to keep their intake to 9 teaspoons of sugar (150 calories). To put things into perspective- A can of regular soda packs about 35 grams of added sugars, equivalent to 8.75 teaspoons of sugar or 140 calories. By these standards, most adults would have nearly reached or gone over their recommended daily intake of sugar after one single serving of a popular soft drink. Sugar free drink options, like Celsius Sparkling Cola, are a great option for individuals who need to kick their soda habit but do not want to go cold turkey by drinking plain water. Unlike most cola, Celsius is loaded with vitamins and still tastes great!

So are you guilty of eating too much sugar?

Even if you are not a soda drinker, you may be surprised to find that some of your favorite food items are loaded with added sugar-

  • Bread
  • Yogurt
  • Protein Bars
  • Salad Dressing
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Fruit Ice Pops
  • Oatmeal Packets
  • Ketchup
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Fruit Juice

At times our sweet tooth can get the best of us. BUT rather than choosing your typical sweet treat, choose naturally sweet food items in moderation. Fruit is great option since it also contains fiber which blunts the effects of sugar on the body so you will not get a huge spike of insulin. Fruit will help you feel fuller for a longer period and are full of vitamins and nutrients. If you are looking for a refreshing drink option that will energize you without all of the sugar, Celsius is a great option. Each can of sugar free Celsius will provide you with healthy energy and is available in 5 delicious flavors.

Take Home Message: The majority of Americans are eating too much sugar and carbohydrates! Are you guilty of this? While carbs are the bodies preferred source for fuel, if you give the body too much of the sweet stuff, you WILL gain body fat. Carbs also tend to raise your blood sugar a bit more than other types of food which will give you energy that is usually followed by a crash.

Cardio Training Routine for Celsius Challenge

Cardio training Celsius challengeWhen you walk into the gym, many times the majority of the cardio equipment is being used by the patrons… but are they really training in a way that will help them see results? Some people are going too slowly, others are working so intensely that they cannot last more than 5 minutes on the step mill. While it is great that these people are being active, in most cases they never see the results that they are seeking because their cardio training routine lacks proper INTENSITY. Many are simply going through the motions in order to complete a few miles or minutes for their training log. By following this cardio protocol, you will be working at the proper intensity for your skill level and making the most out of your precious time in the gym.

 

 

Below you will find all of the information that you need in order to perform the cardio portion and get the most out of your routine. The beauty of this part of the program is that you can choose ANY type of cardio training to meet the requirements. The only thing you have to do is 1. Drink your Celsius prior to training and 2. Keep your heart rate in the recommended zone which keeps your level of intensity high. It is that easy! Below you will find all of the information you need to get started. Before beginning your routine, it is recommended that you invest in a heart rate monitor to be able to easily see where your heart rate is while training.

Below you will find a chart on how to find an estimate of your Heart Rate Reserve as well as what percentage your heart rate needs to be in as each week progresses.

How to determine your Heart Rate Reserve (HRR).

Heart Rate Max= 220-Age

Heart Rate Resting= Heart Beats Per 1 Min at Rest

Heart Rate Reserve= Heart Rate Max- Heart Rate Resting

 

How to determine your % of Heart Rate Reserve (HRR).

40% HRR= (.40xHRR)+HRrest

50% HRR= (.50xHRR)+ HRrest

60% HRR= (.60xHRR)+ HRrest

70% HRR= (.70xHRR) + HRrest

Celsius will help to provide you with the endurance that you need to get through these training sessions and the more consistent you are, the easier the workouts will become due to increased stamina. By having more energy, you will be able to train harder and longer than you had in the past. Thanks to Celsius, you will be able to burn more calories and fat while you improve your overall cardio endurance.

As always be sure to properly hydrate and listen to your body during training. Should you feel, faint, dizzy or nauseous slow down your pace until you feel better and proceed with your routine. Exerting yourself physically is not going to always be comfortable. Begin to learn the difference between challenging yourself at a higher intensity and pushing yourself too hard. *Consult with your primary care physician before beginning any exercise program or taking dietary supplements.

Lessons From a Fast Sprint Duathlon

The FishHawk Triathlon Club held its second event on March 9, 2014 in Riverview, FL! The FishHawk Club is dedicated to promoting the sport of triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon and Xterra racing. The event was a fast Sprint Duathlon (USAT sanctioned) format, sponsored by Just Ride Bicycles. This type of course consists of 1.5 Mile Run, 14 Mile Bike, 3.1 Mile Run. Celsius ambassador, Dennis Navarette, uses Celsius to power through his training sessions and dominate in competitions. Dennis participated in this event and provides a behind the scenes look at what it is like on a duathlon race day.
 

Fast Sprint Duathlon Tips

“For this event, I tagged along with 2 members of the RunVie Racing (www.RunVie.com) club who gave me some pointers for duathlon racing in hopes of shaving several minutes off of my time during my transitions! 


The event started at 7:45am. My beginning pace was about 8 minutes per mile and slowly built it to average 7:05 minutes for the first mile. By the end of the run, I was slightly ahead of my fellow runners. Then, it was time for the first transition. For this event, I was prepared and had my gear laid out. Although this transition was much better than my what-seemed-like-forever transitions from previous events, my fellow racers got their bikes off the racks faster than me...my short lead was also short lived.

While the others may have stolen the lead, I was able to clip my shoes on to my pedals a bit quicker and was off in front of them!

About a mile or so in the bike leg of the race. My race buddies passed me. I tried to keep up but they built a good lead and soon were out of my range.

Of course my friends weren't the only ones who passed me at the first run and bike portions of the race. Several runners and cyclists of all ages, both males and females, passed me! At the end of my bike leg, there were already at least a handful of duathletes finishing lap #1 of the 2 at the end of the race.

At the last leg of the race, a 3.14 mile run, I was way behind my race buddies. I had a lot of ground to catch up! My second transition was not as fast as the first. Someone had taken my spot on the rack! So, I racked the bike just a couple of feet from the original spot. Now I had to manage my way between bike wheels to get to my running shoes!

As I rounded the first corner of my run, my calves started to pulsate and there was a bit of tingling behind my knees! I stopped to stretch them out, taking about 10 second for each leg. I did not want to stretch any longer in fear of seizing completely. Instead, I stretched them out as I ran. I was at about a 10 min/mile pace at this point and my calf muscles were still pulsating! The tingly feeling was still there so I tried to distract myself from thinking about them...just get to the water station!

I took a sip of some water and repeated the same pattern: start slow and incrementally increase my running pace. But this time, a bit faster. My legs finally loosened up and I was able to go at a steady pace. I was happy to have the endurance from Celsius to finish "strong".

I finished the race in 1:21:44, which was a great improvement from my first Duathlon. I can't wait to train for the next one hoping to put what I have learned from these events to use!-
