Healthy/Balanced Diet Tips For An Active Lifestyle?

Question by : Healthy/Balanced Diet Tips For An Active Lifestyle?
What type of foods would you recommend as far as maintaining a healthy/balanced diet? So far, I’ve thought of lean chicken, whole grain pastas and breads, fruits/vegetables, and fish. My active level is high as I am in the military. I run and lift weights about four times a week. Any recommendations would be appreciated and thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by The freak
Chicken veggie burrito with whole grain tortilla wrap. It should include black beans, diced tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole and a little cheese. This covers protein, complex carbs, antioxidants, phytochemicals, dairy, and health fats that increase HDL.

Good luck

The Top 100 Recipes for Happy Kids: Keep Your Child Alert, Focused, Active and Healthy (The Top 100 Recipes Series)

As experts pay closer attention to how junk food affects children’s behavior, it’s become increasingly clear that a well-nourished child is also a happy one. The great news is that it’s easy to make changes that will improve kids’ brain function, concentration, and outlook on life. Here are quick, delicious, and nutritious meals that will help grow a more contented, better behaved child, from an energy-boosting breakfast of blueberry and apple muffins to chicken dippers, a brown roll, and muesli munchies for the lunchbox. Try sweet potato wedges for an afternoon snack. Serve a smiley-face pizza for dinner, followed by banana and coconut ice cream. Children will love the food and parents will love the difference it makes in their kids.

Gameplay
Designed around the standard Wii Remote/Nunchuck tethered controller configuration, EA SPORTS Active‘s interactive fitness program is more focused on physical activities than previous ‘fitness’ titles for the Wii, but still challenges you to have fun while developing a more healthy lifestyle. Separated into the three sections of workout, nutrition, lifestyle, and other activity, the user’s experience begins with a pep talk from Bob Greene which quickly transitions into the beginnings of action as players set up profiles, choose a virtual personal trainer and enter baseline data like age, weight, gender, fitness goals, etc. Although the nutrition, lifestyle, and other activity sections add a holistic element facilitated by a mix of surveys and data input, building fitness through physical activity is the driving force behind EA SPORTS Active and as such the meat of the content resides in the workout section. Here players will find dozens of themed strength training and cardio workouts which can be customized as you choose and linked into circuit traning routines. These routines are introduced and monitored by your personal trainer, and allow for ongoing player motivation via real-time feedback on your workout form, an approximation of calories burned and the ability to adjust levels of exercise intensity.

Accessories
Although activity in EA SPORTS Active flows exclusively through the combination of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck controllers, it also utilizes a few additional accessories to maximize the functionality of this configuration. The first of these included with the game is the controller leg strap. By attaching this to their upper thigh and then slipping the Nunchuck controller into it, players can utilize the Nunchuck controller’s motion sensing capabilities while it is connected to the Wii Remote to monitor their leg movements. This allows for cardio exercises like jogging and cardio boxing and strength training activities like squats. Also included with the game is a resistance band designed to increase the intensity of a variety of exercises such as bicep curls and shoulder presses and lifts. In addition, although not included, the Wii Balance board is compatible with many EA SPORTS Active workouts, but only as an optional added controller configuration.

Key Game Features:
