FoodHealthMad about macros

November 30, 20206 min

The latest buzzword in the world of health and fitness is ‘macros,’ which is short for ‘macronutrients.’ But what are macros and how can they help you to achieve your nutrition and exercise goals? Macros are the basic components of nutrition – the fat, protein and carbs needed to fuel the body and keep all its systems working. We caught up with Michael Sole, founder of the popular gym and fitness facility The Den in Dubai’s...

I’m not a lover of labels. They can restrict and disempower rather than liberate and empower, and “empath” is territory that definitely falls prey to this in so many ways. Basically, an “empath” is someone with empathy, which is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing. It means that even when the other person isn’t verbalizing their emotional state, you can just sense it.  This can be immensely powerful and certainly...

Proper nutrition and physical activity are the foundation to a healthy body. But that’s a hard formula to teach our young ones. Junk food is everywhere and resisting temptation is difficult, especially for children. Whether it’s a celebration or a simple night at home, cakes, cupcakes, pizza and sodas seem to be a regular part of the fun.  As a physical education teacher and a health promoter I see my students come to class in...

On the surface, Florence Gillet, 39, looks like a happy-go-lucky mother of two beautiful kids. Naturally slim and a champion of feminism and body positivity, you’d never guess that she’s lived though more than a decade of disordered eating that stemmed from something as simple as increasing her intake of fruit and vegetables. What she didn’t know back then, as a 25-year-old whose plan was to lose a few pounds to “look better” in her...

If you’re living an active lifestyle that involves working out frequently, you’re probably familiar with one of the most-used and oldest supplements available –  protein powder.   Since it first appeared in the 1950s, protein powder has evolved through many stages into the supplement it is today.  Throughout those transitions, one thing has remained constant: protein powder can be a quick and convenient way to meet your daily protein needs.  Why is protein so important? Protein...

As a physical education teacher, I see every day that children are eating food that is bad for them. They are eating too much processed food, including sodas, sweets, fast food and other junk foods. All are packed with unhealthy ingredients. But why are they eating this stuff?  Well, bad food is big business. Billions of dollars are made each year by junk food manufacturers. Food that is sweet and fast and cheaper to make,...
