A problem with Intense Cardio?
How about this combo for a strange meal?
That was my dinner last night. I can’t seem to shake my love for nachos so at least adding lots of veggies in and on the side help make the meal healthy.
Speaking of healthy, I present you with my odd dessert last night.
I mixed apple sauce, cocoa powder, crunchy peanut butter, Chia Goodness, flax, vanilla extract, cinnamon, natural sugar, and baking powder +soda, then microwaved it for a couple of minutes. Clearly I wasn’t bothered by my baking mishaps from the other night! Oh, and it was surprisingly good! (I mean fudgey “chocolate” always is, isn’t it?)
This morning I went to a strength conditioning class at the gym. It was similar to the class I took last week except with an emphasis on weights instead of cardio. These early morning workout classes really rev up my appetite.
While eating my breakfast, I glanced through one of the gossip magazines sitting around in my apartment. I came across an article on fitness guru Harley Pasternak and his tips for staying “fit.” I was taken back in by what he said:
One of the keys to staying fit and healthy is to keep moving from the moment you wake up. A 50 minute-long spin class at the gym can’t make up for spending the rest of the day sitting at your desks, in the car, in front of the TV, etc. Several recent studies have supported this, and many actually found those that do intense cardio actually increase their appetite and end up eating more throughout the day as a result.
Bold move advising against intense cardio. Do you agree with Harley? Disagree? Don’t care, just want more pictures of cheese toast? 😀
