Hi Jeff Carson here, Compounding Pharmacist and
Chief-of-Staff at Oakdell Pharmacy. It’s great to go to the gym or be out
riding my bike and see more and more people exercising. But when I talk to
people about their exercise plan, I find a common mistake. It is extremely
important to change your eating habits based on your workout routine. In order
to maximize the results of your new found exercise routine, you need to make
sure you are eating not only the right number of calories to support your
metabolism, but also the right combinations of foods as well. You see, our
bodies are either in fat burning mode or fat storing mode. If you are eating
too little (ie. Restricting your calories too much) or too much you can put
your body into fat storage mode. You can also put your body into fat storage
mode by raising your blood sugar levels. This happens after eating high sugar
foods and carbohydrates like candy and potatoes. If you have questions about
proper nutrition, go to our website at www.oakdellpharmacy.com
or call our wellness center today at 614-6200.
Something I wanted to include in this spot but didn’t have the time, is proper nutritional supplementation. There are a variety of vitamins and nutritional supplemet you can use to maximize your workouts. Whether your trying to build muscle, maintain muscle, or burn fat you can help yorself reach your goal by choosing the right supplements. At our wellness center, you can schedule a privat appointment to discuss your workout nutrition and goals and we can make recommendations on what supplements can help you. Let me know what you think!
