DD Fitness: Gwyneth Paltrow and the alkaline diet

first_imgThere are many diets out there and all of them proclaim to be the one that will work the best for your weight and health issues.Whenever a celebrity gets involved and starts to promote them, you always have to take them with a pinch of salt.Gwyneth Paltrow has teamed up with ‘Flow’ Alkaline water and will be making it part of her ‘Goop’ beauty brand throughout 2019. “The first of its kind campaign for the rapidly growing brand features Paltrow highlighting Flow’s naturally occurring essential minerals, electrolytes and an alkaline pH of +/- 8.1.”So, what is Alkaline water, and should we be drinking it for our health, and can it make any difference to it?The idea with these kinds of things come originally from the alkaline diet. While the Alkaline diet isn’t overly bad compared to some of the extreme diets that are on the market, what it claims to be able to do for your health is what the main issue is. The idea behind it is that many foods are the culprit of excessive acidity within our body.This is claimed to be the cause of weight gain, bone disorders like osteoporosis, energy loss, inflammation, ageing and even cancer*. (1)They claim that eating alkaline-forming foods can offset these issues and can even cure cancer.Food to include in the diet are: (2)Vegetables, green vegetables and fermented vegetablesFruits like apples, berries, lemon.Fat such as, avocado, almonds, seedsGrains like quinoaOther foods to include are; herbal tea, apple-cider vinegar and coconut water.Foods to exclude: Eggs, caffeinated drinks, milk, pasta and processed grains, alcoholSo, are our bodies in an ‘Acidic’ state and do they need regulation to ‘fix’ the other issues?When we look at the science on our bodies PH levels you will find that it is a very tightly regulated system.So tight, that even a small shift in blood PH can cause severe illness and even death. (3)Food alone cannot change the blood PH levels or have any effect on them, and this one point more or less debunks the main claims that the diet has. The levels of PH are measured in the diet through urine tests on litmus paper, and while foods can change the PH of urine they cannot change the PH of the blood. (Urine is separated from the blood by the bladder.) (4)It cannot help with osteoporosis.It absolutely cannot cure cancer and the creator of the diet has been jailed in the USA after people he was ‘treating’ died from their cancers. Why then do people make claims about the diet and claim that it ‘cured’ them from ailments and helped with their weight and health issues?That is simple.The diet consists of whole foods with huge amounts of fruit, vegetables and healthy meat sources.It is high in fibre, vitamins and minerals and apart from needlessly excluding foods, isn’t a bad way to set up your diet.The benefits you are getting from the Alkaline diet are just the benefits you are getting from ANY diet that reduces or eliminates highly processed foods and alcohol and increases whole foods, fruits and veg and water intake.There is nothing special about it and it doesn’t have any special miracle cures.It is simply another diet that has exaggerated claims that don’t stack up.Flow is set to be promoted throughout Europe over the next few months. With a high-profile celebrity like Paltrow behind them, I’m sure that we will begin to see another rise of the Alkaline diet along with it.Just know that you will be spending your money on something that will not and cannot have any effect on your health.So, save your money and just hydrate with normal water and eat more whole foods.That will stand to you better in the long run.#leanin2019Our next set of Lean in 2019 classes starts this Monday, September 16th.Now the kids are back to school, you can get back into routine and have time for yourself.Let us help you to achieve your goals.Click the link below to see our extensive range of times and membership options.https://www.rushefitness.ie/class/lean-in-2019-gym-plan/Spaces are filling up fast so don’t delay, get booking NOW and get the rest of 2019 off to a great start!References:1.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3195546/2. http://thenutritionpress.com/debunking-the-alkaline-diet/3.https://www.rudymawer.com/blog/scientific-review-alkaline-diet-fact-fiction/4. https://sciencebasedpharmacy.wordpress.com/2009/11/13/your-urine-is-not-a-window-to-your-body-ph-balancing-a-failed-hypothesis/DD Fitness: Gwyneth Paltrow and the alkaline diet was last modified: September 13th, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Duke Using Avery Johnson “Standard” Quote For Marketing Purposes

first_imgAvery johnsons smiles at alabama podium.avery johnson alabamaFormer NBA point guard and head coach Avery Johnson was recently hired to take over the reins of the Alabama basketball program, which has reached just one NCAA Tournament in the past nine seasons. Johnson has a tall task ahead of him, but he has lofty goals for his new squad, saying during his introductory press conference his program will try and live up to the standard set by Duke, the 2014-15 national champions. “Duke University, that’s the standard for us here at the University of Alabama and our basketball program,” Johnson said. “The way they play defense and offense. The way they move the ball, that’s the standard. Nobody else is the standard. That’s the standard. Duke University. That’s why I’m here.”If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, it also makes for good publicity in this case. Judging by its Instagram post this morning, the Duke program is using Johnson’s quote to its marketing advantage.An obvious, but savvy move by Duke. We’re sure Johnson isn’t the only coach looking to get his program on the level of the Blue Devils but it’s easier said than done.last_img read more

Jimmy Case pleads for patience with Mark Hughes

first_imgEnglish retired footballer Jimmy Case points out that although Mark Hughes’ record from his first 16 league games is worse than any Saints manager since George Burley, patience is all the team needs, stating that Cherries are reaping the benefits of Eddie Howe’s longevity.“Eddie Howe has been at Bournemouth six years and they look settled as a team as a result,” said Case.“But Southampton have had six managers in that time and again there is talk about certain managers coming in.“I like Mark Hughes and the way his teams play and I think he needs a bit more time” case said via Bournemouthecho.“Some people shout from the terraces ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’ but when a new manager comes in it takes time to find out about your players and the best formation to use.“They look a bit tentative but whether they know the way they should be playing or are trying to find his way, I don’t know. I think they are just lacking a couple of results.”Case, haven spent the 1991-92 season at Dean Court after six years in Saints’ midfield under Chris Nicholl, added: “I have an affinity with both clubs.“I played for Southampton against Bournemouth years ago and it’s certainly been a turnabout.Eddie Howe pleased with attacking poise, but feels Wilson was too honest Stuart Heath – August 25, 2019 A.F.C Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe felt as though his striker Callum Wilson was too honest against Manchester City and may have won a penalty,…“When I left Bournemouth, Harry Redknapp and the chairman came to me and said they would have to let me go.“Although I was 39, I’d played nearly all the games but that was a moment when the banks had just come in and anyone at the end of their contract had to leave.“I said I would go on half money just to keep playing but me and Kevin Bond had to leave.“I used to have a cup of tea with the groundsman next to the lawnmowers in his shed underneath the stands!“They have come a hell of a long way since then.“They have a squad together that can maintain a push beyond mid-table and they have started really well.“As well as being a settled side, they have quality in there with forwards like Callum Wilson and Josh King”last_img read more
