For me, diet means feeding your body with nutrition and eating consciously in smaller proportions, with food choices that you’ll be happy with for a long time. A healthy diet is a permanent lifestyle habit, not a temporary excuse to lose weight quickly.
As part of my diet, I include mostly clean complex carbs (oats, yam, brown rice and whole grains), lean protein (chicken, white fish, lean beef and egg whites), lots of nutrient and fiber rich veggies (broccoli, spinach and asparagus), ‘good’ fats (salmon, almonds, walnuts and avocado) and of course, plenty of H2O (at least 4 litres of water a day)!
As a daily supplement, I take a multivitamin and fish oil for overall health benefits. A shot of BRAND’S Essence of Chicken is good too so that I can stay on top of things. It contains an active compound called ProBeptigen® which has been proven to boost learning and memory. This is especially handy when I’m training Muay Thai… Gotta stay focused!
I’m still a beginner so it’s important for me to stay alert when sparring with my trainer so I don’t get hit! When my mind is alert, it gives me better focus and reflexes to avoid attacks and to strike back efficiently with my body and effectively. The technique can be quite technical and speed gives a huge advantage.
I definitely wouldn’t want to get socked in face at Muay Thai again. The last time that happened, I almost got knocked out!
ProBeptigen® is the magic ingredient in BRAND’S Essence of Chicken which has been proven to boost mental concentration and memory. Combined with Carnosine, it promotes brain health and brain fitness, which increases mental concentration, focus and willpower. Now THAT will absolutely give you a greater advantage when at work AND working out!
I trust in BRAND’S Essence of Chicken because it contains no artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives. It’s been around for 175 years and is known for its efficiency in mental alertness.
I checked out their Facebook page yesterday (link to http://synad2.nuffnang.com.sg/nn_gtrack.php?click&gid=10971) and saw this awesome contest called “Stay Switched On, Stay Open To Opportunities” with BRAND’S Essence of Chicken!
Basically until 31st May 2012, you stand a chance to win over S$30,000 worth of cash and prizes just by spotting and sending in this 8 number code on the inside of the promotional sleeve (the promo pack costs $18.95). Looks legit, I’m going to give it a shot… no pun intended! By the way, the promo pack above should come with a sleeve that contains the “Stay Switch On Stay Open to Opportunities” blurb on the front panel.
