Coffee & Questions - 8th May 2020

Happy Fri-Yay !!

Today we went a little deep on Coffee & Questions as I tried to channel my Dr Karl to answer Liam's question on lactic acid and Jo's question on Nitrate 😆.
To kick-off, Ben wanted to know if I deliver my cooking! The answer is no... but if anyone is interested in doing some online cooking classes please hola! I ran one during the week for QLD Health's Finance Department and it was a blast! A great way to learn some new skills and get some nutrition education in the current climate.
He also asked what My Top 5 Tips for Weight Loss are but I don't think this is the right focus for right now (sorry Benny 🙈).
So instead, here are my Top 4 Tips for what you should be focusing on to support your overall health and immune system right now (3:00 minutes into the video) :
1. Getting 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of veggies every day
2. Getting at least 30g of fibre. But more is better!
3. Limiting alcohol
4. Regular moderate-intensity exercise
All of these components I cover in detail in the Stay Healthy During Isolation Course. If you're looking for some healthy advice to support you through the current times, make sure you check it out HERE
Liam wanted to know if eating foods that contain lactic acid before exercise increased your production during exercise (Conversation starts at 8:28 in the videoGreat question! If anyone has more insight to help answer this one - please reach out!
And Joh wanted to know about Nitrate and Sports Performance (15:15 minutes in). I've written a blog on Nitrate if you wanted to do some further reading - You can check it out HERE
Remember that supplements are the sprinkles on the icing on the cake. It's really important you have the foundations nailed (the cake base) before experimenting with toppings.
