I have registered my food for a week with an app called Myfitnesspal. It is very useful to look after the calories you need but sometimes is quite inaccurated because you dont have the weight or the volume of the food. It is also very boring aech time you eat something put it in the app. But when you are doing a diet its important to keep your calories clear
The traditional food pyramid as we known is a bit wrong because it says that we must eat cereals and pasta but this is not true. The homo sapiens are not used to consume this things, we havent been in the Earth enough time. This table shows very well this:
8,000-10,000 years ago, man learned to become a farmer, and with it he began to consume cereals in significant quantities. At the same time, we also learned to domesticate animals, which gave us access to new foods, such as milk and its derivatives.
We take 1% of our existence taking these products so in some populations we are not able to process these foods correctly.
This does not mean that we necessarily eliminate these foods, but it is reasonable to think that they should not represent a large part of our food.
With the industrial revolution, food is processed and produced in large quantities. Since the industrial revolution, the production of refined sugar is massified and its consumption begins to increase exponentially.
Before, to take the sugar equivalent of a Coke you had to spend several days chewing sugar cane. Today you can take it in 5 minutes.
But now there are also alternatives to sugar that are as bad as sugar. Also almost all the cereals and flour are processed like the milk that in any case we should take it whole
Our health has worsened with the emergence of new diseases such as cancer, diabetes or obesity, and the main factor is food.
If you want strong health, make sure that most of your food is similar to that of a hunter-gatherer, with moderate amounts of dairy and cereals, and almost eliminating the processed products.
Today we continued doing volleyball. We have been doing this week some exercises but today we did especially finger shots and block. To block we must jump as high as we can and then move your hands with some power. This exercices are cool but I want to play volleybal now!!
Today we did zumba again. We did the same songs as the other day and two more “Despacito´´ and “Súbeme la radio´´
Today we have been in the gym of the “Palacio de los Deportes´´ about 10 min to our school. It’s small but there you can do a lot of different exercises like squats with weight or mucles up. There are also eliptical bikes and treadmills. I liked going to the gym i hope that Jorge will bring there more times
We started playing volleyball. It’s not my first time playing I played it in a summer camp but before I didn’t know the rules of it. We did some basic exercises for example we had to throw the ball to the opponenr but instead of hitting the ball we have to catch it and throw it into the adversary’s field. Then the next level was almost the same excepr we had to run to a cone and try to save the ball
Today we used another APP called Sworkit, this app allows you to customize your training with a lot of exercises and it shows how you need to perform them, it also reminds you the time you must to rest. This can help you to do exercises in your homes because it’s very easy to use: Jorge, our teacher, give us some homerwork with this app.
