Here are some great reasons to eat sushi and help with your fitness regime.
Tuna: Great for muscle building.Tuna is a great source of lean protein containing more than most other fish. Because sashimi is eaten raw it's easy on the digestive system and the proteins are easily absorbed by hungry muscles.Salmon Rolls: Omega 3 in salmon prevents the stress hormone cortisol from peaking.Shrimp and onion Maki: Post workout: This contains rice which helps restore glycogen levels and fatty acids in joints. Antioxidants are present in the spring onion and nori help fight free radicals which are produced when training.Mackerel Nigiri: This will give you a protein intake in the afternoon plus the mackerel contains high levels of phosphatidylserine in its flesh which boost concentration and memory. This should help wake you up at work and perform better.Dragon Rolls: These will help with the dreaded hangover. It's protein and carbs will help pick up your sugar levels. The avocado will help replenish the potassium stores. My advice would be too limit your alcohol intake during periods of training. Alcohol has the same effect as not drinking enough water. The mitochondria in your body which use fat stop and close their doors meaning your fat does not get used up by the body. I tell all my clients that if they do not stay hydrated their body will stop burning fat. Far too many people seem to drink minimal amounts of water which is a shame because the body needs water when performiSo for all you sushi lovers you can now pick the correct sushi dish for a particular part of the day to complement all of your fitness efforts. Remember diet is very very very important when training. A bad diet will seriously reduce the benefits gained from any exercise regime. So if sushi is not for you then start thinking about alternative forms of healthy eating
