Eat Like An Athlete With Organic Chia Seed

In ancient times, the Aztecs gave chia to their warriors in preparation for battle. Their messengers consumed chia for energy to run across the mountains. And their leaders received chia as an annual tribute.

Now, five hundred years later, chia's making headlines. Heard of chia? With 27+ nutrients and a jaw-dropping assortment of fatty acids, antioxidants and wholesome goodness, chia is truly deserving of that often-used moniker "super-food".

Chia and the Athletic Diet

This raises another possibility. In addition to being a go-to supplement for weight loss, more energy, fewer digestion problems and better skin, Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed might wake the athlete within.

Truth be told, most of us aren't professional athletes and other than the odd foray into the gym or a game of touch football, few of us require the extremities of an athlete's diet. After all, athletes are the pinnacle of human performance, and to get to that level requires years of training. And like an exotic sports car, they use high-octane fuel for performance and make sacrifices to do it.

Still, it's an intriguing thought. Because when you look closer, Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed bears striking similarities between its nutritional break down and the athlete's diet. Let's look closer at Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed and see if it's got the goods to tap your athletic potential.

Carbohydrates

Carbs are the basis of the athletic diet. In fact, most athletes get between 40% and 50% of their energy from this over-looked food source. Bad carbs with high sugar content tend to stack on weight. The trick is to eat healthy carbs and work them off.

Athletes eat complex carbohydrates, including pasta, potatoes and grain products. And they eat simple carbohydrates, like milk and fruits. In fact, carbs are so important to the athletic diet that they often constitute up to 75% of what athletes put in their mouths.

Keep in mind that a diet of 75% carbohydrates is very high and not recommended for long-term health. Even athletes temper these extremes with short-term use. For the long-haul, your best bet with carbs is closer to 40% of your dietary intake. Most of that should be fiber.

Chia shines here, with a 44% breakdown of carbohydrates, and thirty-eight per cent of that is fiber.

Fats

Don't fear fats. Like carbs, fats are an excellent source of fuel. Fat consumption for athletes should never fall below 15%, and is ideally closer to 30%.

As with carbs, we're talking healthy fats here. Ditch the beer and nachos. Get with the nuts and the olive oil. Healthy fats sustain the body and constitute up to 75% of the fuel burned in aerobics and endurance training.

Chia's got you covered here, with 31% fat. And it's done the real work for you, shunning unhealthy fat for more fuel-friendly consumption and performance.

Protein

Weight-lifters love protein because it builds muscle. But protein provides less energy than carbs and fats. And similarly, unused protein gets converted to fat.

The body doesn't use protein for energy as efficiently as with carbs and with fat. Generally speaking, endurance athletes should consume about 1.3 grams of protein per kilogram (a kilogram is 2.2 pounds). Weight-lifters can go higher, to 1.7 grams per kilo.

And chia? Sixteen per cent protein, which matches the recommended 15% protein intake for athletes with amazing consistency.

The Post-Workout Meal

A post-exercise or event meal is very beneficial, especially with the recommended breakdown of carbs, fats and protein.

This can be problematic for many athletes, as they're not always hungry after extreme exercise and may even be nauseous. And it's hard to get that kind of nutrition within 30 minutes of a work-out or athletic event (want to run home and cook a balanced meal within half an hour of an extreme work-out?).

Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed is ideal for the post-workout nutrition boost, with the perfect blend of carbs, fats and protein to help your body recuperate, build muscle and prepare for what's next. And it's easily added to a sandwich, a smoothie or consumed on its own.

Conclusion

There's a pattern here. Chia is a super-food, with the nutritional content of an athlete's diet.
That's not to say that you can ignore the rest of your diet. Nutrition counts over the long-term. If you're a fast-food junkie or gorge on sugar and unhealthy fats, all the help in the world can't save you from the health ailments to follow.

But for the health conscious, for those who choose to live well, and yes, for aspiring athletes, chia is a potent blend of athleticism in the convenience of a seed. And Digestive Science Organic Chia Seed may awaken the athlete within that's dying to get out.

Thank you very much to everyone - Karen, John & Terri - for your great tokens of appreciation. As you all know we might be flying among stars but from the health community mentality's point of view we are going back towards some primitives ... Thanks again! Go IBO!

Karen Kierscht   939 day(s) ago
Mircea, it's amazing how long it takes the health community to catch up w/nutrients that have been around and beneficial for ages. Most folks think of chia as the seed that sprouts from clay pots. Great info, I'll see if I can send this off to Twitter land for you. Karen from KC
