Podcast #62 - Health Tips from Coach Clarence (Longer Version)

Coach Clarence, who is a fitness & nutrition expert with over 20 years of experience, answers these four very important questions on how to improve your health.

#1 Why is it important to continue exercising after age 40?
Working out improves your mood
Exercising even one day a week or 10 minutes a day, according to studies, makes you more cheerful, upbeat & improves your self-esteem
Exercise goes beyond the physical & can lead to better mental health

#2 Why is a good night’s sleep so important?
Studies show most people need 7-8 hours of sleep a night for mental & physical recovery
A nap during the day, even if it’s only 20 minutes, is beneficial
What happens when you don’t get enough good sleep
* You’re more hungry
* Leads to more diabetes & heart conditions
* Productivity decreases
* Can lead to poor decisions, missed opportunities & loss of income
Tips for better sleep
* Create a routine of going to bed & waking up at the same time every day
* Invest in a good mattress
* Buy the best pillow for you
* Sleep in a quiet, dark, cool room without your TV & cell phone
* Take a hot bath or shower before bedtime
* Limit your intake of caffeine

#3 Is cardio a waste of time?
Anaerobic vs aerobic exercise
Cardio decreases body fat but can be time-consuming
Should you do cardio before or after your workout & how it affects your performance
Strength training & HIIT (high-intensity interval training) burns more calories than cardio
Very important to consult with Coach Clarence on the right options for you

#4 How can I improve my gut health?
Change your diet. Get rid of trans fats, sugar & processed foods
Consume more chicken, fish & whole grains
High fiber or plant-based diet may work best for you
Drink 8 glasses of water a day
Chew slowly, don’t rush through a meal
Quality sleep
Eat more fermented foods including low sugar yogurt
Eat dark chocolate (not to excess)
Add more polyphenols to your diet such as green tea, blueberries, broccoli & almonds
