Team Seasiders ‘Race the Sun 2014’…. and live to tell the tale….

TriathlonRace the Sun is a hugely popular team challenge set in the stunning Lake District. Teams of four are challenged to cycle 50 miles, climb Hellvellyn and canoe Lake Thirlmere. Starting at sunrise and finishing by sunset – Racing the Sun!

All funds raised by the challenge will support the work of Action Medical Research and will make a huge difference to the research the charity is able to fund offering hope to the many thousands of families across the UK who are dealing with the trauma of a baby born too early, striving to support a child affected by disability, or facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.

This year the Seasiders’ armed with G&G’s organic EssentialFood, Elete Electrolyte Add-In and Cal-M, took only 8hrs 43minutes to complete the entire event finishing in 4th place overall, a fantastic result considering they started in 74th position from 85 teams!

Whilst the weather was good on the day, the rain fall over the preceding week, made the off-road section treacherous and a dangerous decent, plus strong winds (60mph) up on Hellvellyn proved something of a challenge

As one of the 11 teams of ‘Golden Oldies’ (all team members collective age 180 years+), The Seasiders’ only missed out on winning the entire event by a short margin, and did win the ‘Golden Oldies’ Award only 12 minutes behind the younger team that won the race – though the youngsters had a 10 minute start on The Seasiders’ !

Nick said “I used the Elete in all drinks as I sweat a lot in exercise and I got cramp badly last year in the final leg, so this time all drinks were loaded with Elete and it worked a treat… I used one bottle of EssentialFood and Cal-M.  All nutrition [from G&G] worked well as I didn’t have to overload my system with too much sugary gels; only when I needed them. Thanks for the samples, they were really helpful.”

How to Lose Weight without Doing Any Exercise

The Natural Choice:

And that is the truth, plain and simple….

Originally posted on Health by G&G:

Now before I start, I want to let you know I’m not condoning zero exercise.  Exercise is essential and something you should do regularly! But if your primary concern is weight loss, exercise can just be that extra something to firm things up. The fact is that 90% of your waistline battle is won or lost in the kitchen.

So here’s the first and major factor: EAT REAL FOOD.

What do I mean by real food? I’m talking about vegetables, lean meats, fish, eggs, fruit, and nuts. Why does this work? Because you’re only eating foods that you’re genetically engineered to thrive on: high quality, high energy real foods.  Not from a box, not from a bag, not passed to you through a window by a teenager on minimum wage. Food that the good old earth around us has supplied.

Bread, cereal, pasta, fried food, rice, bagels, doughnuts, waffles, chips…

The 15 Most Unhealthy Foods

The Natural Choice:

Wow! What an 3eye opener….

Originally posted on Health by G&G:

Let’s face it – we know which foods are bad for us. And yet they can still seem pretty tempting. Well maybe if you knew why they’re really so unhealthy you’d think twice before having that treat.

And so I present the 15 most unhealthy foods:

1. Fizzy Drinks

When it comes to sugar laden carbonated drinks versus their sweetened alternatives, there’s little difference in terms of the damage they do to your health. Zero calorie drinks increase your chances of developing metabolic syndrome, and studies show that both can increase your chances of going on to develop type II diabetes.

2. Processed cheese

Processed cheese is an artificial food with little to no nutritional value. In addition to the high levels of salt and fat, it also contains emulsifiers like trisodium phosphate, (commonly used as a degreasing agent.)

3. Cinema popcorn

Let’s be honest, buy a bucket of popcorn…
