“Proteins are made up of carbon and hydrogen molecules arranged in specific ways. Proteins also contain nitrogen as part of their amino group.”
“Carbohydrates are made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen molecules. Sugars, starches, and fibers are all considered carbohydrates. Our digestive system breaks down carbohydrates and eventually releases them into the bloodstream in the form of glucose. Glucose is essential to life: it provides fuel for the brain and central nervous system.”
How do we become our healthiest self?
Exercise – activity requiring physical effort, carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness.
Food is one of life’s pleasures.
Is fruit bad for you?
Over the summer break I took a trip to Stewart Island for a tramping holiday and decided not to take my phone, crazy right? I was away for 2 weeks in total and ended up being in no hurry to reconnect once back in Auckland.
The reality of us normal folk getting healthy can look quite different to the marketing around the fitness world.
