Shilpa Shetty: “I don’t avoid any food. My calorie intake is about 2000 per day. I don’t need that much carbs because I don’t do manuel work .Because I work out, I don’t cut down on my carbs. So the scale tilts towards high protein.
Take the environment into account (as well as your horse’s reaction to the environment). Do not put either yourself or your horse at risk because you are desperate to go riding. Life’s too short.
Tobacco, caffeine, and alcohol destroy vitamins and minerals. Often people can cut back even if they can’t stop altogether. Try to consume no more than 1 or 2 drinks of alcohol daily and no more than 9 drinks per week. Limit your caffeine intake (including tea and some cola drinks) to less than 4 cups daily.
It seems to be quite a modern scourge, this osteoporosis….seems like our lives are too physically easy these days. Not enough weight – bearing work. Lack of calcium in the bones. Men can get it too, but women are much more likely to because of factors such as menopause and the reduction of the hormone oestrogen that it brings with it.
If you want cover for day-to-day benefits such as GP, physiotherapist tokai and dentist ensure that you are getting long-term value for money – check the cover for each benefit & how many visits are covered per benefit. Do you really need this cover right now? If you have young children or you are undergoing regular treatment it may be worthwhile however if not then weigh up how much you are paying for these benefits and how much you are likely to use them. Some of these plans can cost five of six times the price of seeing a doctor so if you usually only attend a doctor once or twice a year it may not be worthwhile having this type of cover.
When you sleep, your body takes time out to heal itself, physically and mentally. At no other time does your body need to recharge its batteries as desperately as after an injury. Invest in eight hours of deep, rejuvenating sleep a night, until you are fully restored.
Well apart from seeing a Physiotherapist I recommend training your core muscle and doing appropriate stretches daily. Certainly lying on the floor and doing some lumbar rolls is important. Also twisting the thorax into rotation is ideal for middle back pain. Learn Pure Pilates and practice it.
