  • Higher Levels of Omega-3 in Diet Associated with Better Sleep

     

    A randomised placebo-controlled study by the University of Oxford suggests that higher levels of omega-3 DHA, the group of long-chain fatty acids found in algae and seafood, are associated with better sleep. The researchers explored whether 16 weeks of daily 600 mg supplements of algal sources would improve the sleep of 362 children. The children who took part in the study were not selected for sleep problems, but were all struggling readers at a mainstream primary school. At the outset, the parents filled in a child sleep questionnaire, which revealed that four in ten of the children in the study suffered from regular sleep disturbances. Of the children rated as having poor sleep, the researchers fitted wrist sensors to 43 of them to monitor their movements in bed over five nights. This exploratory pilot study showed that the children on a course of daily supplements of omega-3 had nearly one hour (58 minutes) more sleep and seven fewer waking episodes per night compared with the children taking the corn or soybean placebo. The findings are due to be published in the Journal of Sleep Research.

    What you eat before exercise is not a black and white subject. There is no one recommendation that can be made because everyone is different, each training session is difference and sports have their own specific demands that require different nutritional approaches. It also depends on what on each specific situation. For example, are you preparing for a training session or competition? Is your training high intensity or low intensity? Is it more endurance or strength based? Therefore, some of the points here come with a few caveats and are may not always apply. Part 1 of the pre-workout blog will focus on some supplements that have been shown to improve performance.

  • High Fat Diets

     

    There has been a slow change in thinking by many nutrition ‘experts’ over the last few years. For so long it has been advised that carbohydrates should form the basis of our diets and that fat (particularly saturated fats) should be limited. This notion has been challenged by a number of high profile experts who are now advising that we eat high fat, or ketogenic, diets. What has since been started is almost a “black and white”, “us vs them” battlefield between advocates and opponents to high fat diets.
