Debate: Should rugby players eat sugar?

first_imgDURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA – JUNE 05: Dylan Hartley takes a drink during the England training session held at Northwood Crusaders on June 5, 2012 in Durban, South Africa. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS RW What foods and drinks should we avoid?ML: Fizzy drinks, smoothies, fruit juice, fruit yoghurts, cakes and pastries, and probiotic drinks. Some probiotic yoghurt drinks contains 17g of sugar!RW: Is sugar ever good for you?ML: Yes. Fruit sugar, or fructose, has little impact on the blood. So when eaten in small amounts, according to activity patterns, fruit is fine. Some sugar substitutes are good too, like Stevia and Xylitol. They taste sweet without causing a rise in blood sugar.Stealth sugars can be eaten as a treat, or if you’re trained yourself into the ground, doing exercise two or three times a day.Sugar also becomes essential for longer events, especially things like triathlon. Of course you can burn fat too but high intensity, long duration activity needs to be fuelled properly with sugars during the event.Water boy: keep hydrated, and consider taking a sports drinkRW: What does this mean for rugby players?ML: Most rugby players are pretty clued up about their diets these days. They need certain sugars to replenish those they’ve lost after playing and training. In fact, some are so cautious about what they eat that they could take on a bit more sugar post-exercise to aid their recovery.They need to eat mixed sources of slow-release carbs after exercise, like brown rice, sweet potatoes, wholewheat pasta and root vegetables.Before you exercise, a bowl of porridge is good with some yoghurt and berries, and a tiny spoonful of honey. I’d like to encourage people to think of sugar as fuel. It’s like the petrol you put in your tank.Sugar during exercise can be good as well. If you’re training hard, it’ll help increase the time to exhaustion – in other words, make you able to train harder for longer. Exercise does change the rules, but remember that if you’re training for an hour or less it really isn’t necessary to take on any sugars or gels during that time.RW: What will happen to your performance if you eat too much sugar?ML: You’ll probably get fat, and it’ll be like you’re carrying a dead weight around the pitch with you!RW: What should be done to help people cut down on sugar? Sugar hit: are you addicted to sweet stuff? It could affect your performance on the pitch if you areBy Bea Asprey, Rugby World Staff Writer SUGAR HAS been in the headlines a lot recently. Is it the new tobacco? Should we eat it at all? And what does all this mean for rugby players? We asked elite sports nutritionist Matt Lovell, who works with the RFU as well as Tottenham and Manchester City, for some advice.RW: Why is too much sugar so bad for us?ML: I believe that the obesity epidemic is largely down to the amount of sugar we have in our diets. There’s obviously an activity component to it as well but if you look at the stats, over the last 25 years we’ve eaten more slightly more sugar, fructose and less fat, and consistently got fatter and fatter. Diabetes has also risen as well because people don’t eat enough vegetables and don’t eat the right kinds of fats.The good life: most people don’t eat enough fruit and vegRW: What’s the science behind all this?ML: Sugar is a collective name for a group of carbohydrate compounds. If you break down a green bean enough, you’d get glucose, but in a sports drink there may be 50g of refined glucose. You never find this naturally.The primary reason sugar is so bad is because it drives our insulin levels up, and fat doesn’t. Insulin is a hormone that increases the amount of fat we store, and makes it more difficult to break it down when levels remain high.RW: Which foods contain a lot of sugar?ML: All processed foods are laden with sugar. And by that I mean pretty much anything in a box. Breakfast cereals, ready meals, frozen food, stir-in sauces, fruit yoghurts, smoothies, pizzas and of course biscuits, cakes and confectionary.What about low-fat foods, I hear you ask? Well, they’re also bad because they’re almost always high in sugar. Just look at the ingredients when you next wander round the supermarket. The only low fat food I’d recommend you eat is low-fat pesto, and low-fat mayonnaise.RW: What, there’s sugar in pizza?ML: Yep, we get it through refined wheat. We’ve been using this more and more since the industrial revolution, because we want to store foods and make them last longer. We’ve ended up with high levels of sugar, fat and salt in our food. It’s an addictive combination, and then you add preservatives, additives and MSG and it makes it even more addictive. It’s a real nightmare!RW: Are there other foods that contain more sugar than we might realise?ML: Yes, we call them stealth sugars. Things like fruit smoothies have loads of sugar in them, and if you drink more than two and a half cans of fizzy pop a day, it can increase your liver fat, which is not good.RW: Why have these things crept into our diet?ML: We shop on price, and eat foods that are easy to prepare. In addition, the nation is obsessed with cereal, and most people eat white bread over wholemeal, which is terrible for you. In fact many people do better off wheat than on it. ML: Given the rise in the obesity epidemic, the government does have a responsibility to do something. The message consumers are getting through advertising and marketing is wrong.Something everyone can do, though, is to make more food from scratch. People find it time consuming chopping up their own fresh vegetables, but you can drop 2% of your body fat by cutting out things like sauces from jars. Try it!last_img read more

Orange Audubon plans special event May 1 to celebrate Apopka Wildlife…

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Over 370 species of birds have been sighted over the years, more than any site in Florida including the EvergladesFrom Orange Audubon SocietyCelebrating six years since the St. Johns River Water Management District opened the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive to the public, Orange Audubon Society will offer visitors on May 1 a chance to learn how to better identify birds seen along the drive and how to safely spot alligators, bobcats, otters and other wildlife.Nearly 150,000 visitors a year enjoy exploring the drive. To commemorate the drive’s sixth anniversary, volunteers will be stationed at the pavilion near the historic pumphouse, two miles from the entrance, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help with bird identification and offer wildlife viewing tips.“We’re proud of the drive’s success and the incredible educational opportunity it offers residents and visitors,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “Still, it’s important to understand that the drive is just one of the many benefits of the numerous restoration projects under way to improve Lake Apopka’s water quality and natural systems.”Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, photo from SJRWMD videoOnce part of Lake Apopka, the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore was diked off and drained and put into agricultural production in the 1940s. The farms were acquired by the District between 1996 and 2001 with the goal of reducing nutrient-rich discharges to the lake. In addition to protecting water quality, these lands provide water storage and critical wetland functions. The popular 11-mile one-way drive was carefully designed to traverse existing farm levees to provide optimal wildlife viewing opportunities of both the recovering wetlands and lake.The drive is open on days that District staff and contractors are not carrying out Lake Apopka restoration work — Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and most federal holidays. Any day of the week visitors may hike or bicycle the 18-mile Lake Apopka Loop Trail. Details for visitors, including an audio tour, can be found on the District’s website at www.sjrwmd.com/lands/recreation/lake-apopka.Since July 2020, Orange Audubon Ambassadors have been at the welcome shelter near the entrance gate each Saturday and Sunday to provide maps and tips for first-time visitors.Over 370 species of birds have been sighted over the years, more than any site in Florida including the Everglades. The Lake Apopka North Shore has been designated an American Bird Conservancy Globally Important Bird Area, a National Audubon Society State Important Bird Area, an Audubon Florida Special Place, and is on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. In the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s online program in which birders record their sightings, the Lake Apopka North Shore is now the top eBird hotspot in Florida.Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, photo from SJRWMD videoFacebook pages and groups, the District’s self-guided audio tour, informative brochures developed by the District and Friends of Lake Apopka, and Orange Audubon Society’s educational kiosks with links to web information all help visitors to identify the wildlife and understand the lake restoration process.Like all District properties, the Lake Apopka North Shore, including the wildlife drive, is free to visit. However, the District often receives questions from individuals interested in contributing directly to the drive’s upkeep. The District welcomes online donations to support sanitation, recreational maintenance, security, and visitor brochures and maps.Any weekend throughout the year, you can see many out-of-state plates on the Wildlife Drive, and these people buy gas and supplies, eat in restaurants, and stay locally, which brings in ecotourism dollars.For the May 1 event, Orange Audubon encourages visitors to stop by its station near the pumphouse with questions. For additional information, contact Orange Audubon at 407-637-2525.If you go:The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive is open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. The drive is closed on other days due to ongoing restoration work.The entrance gate opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m. to allow visitors time to complete the drive and exit the property by 5 p.m.The one-way drive begins at 2850 Lust Road in Apopka and exits onto Jones Avenue in Zellwood.Due to its popularity, 10 mph speed limit and limited pullover opportunities, visitors are recommended to allow over two hours to travel the 11 miles.There are limited places to park and walk.See www.sjrwmd.com/lands/recreation/lake-apopka for maps and more information and https://www.facebook.com/pg/lakeapopkawildlifedrive for photos.Orange Audubon Society (OAS) is a 55-year old chapter of Florida and National Audubon Societies with 2000+ member households in Central Florida, dedicated to promote public understanding of, and an interest in, wildlife and the environment that supports it. For OAS’ Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive Ambassador Program and other volunteer efforts, the St. Johns River Water Management District recently awarded OAS the Bob Owens Award for Volunteer Service.

Hospital escapes liability for accident at fundraising event

first_img Howard Lake | 25 October 2002 | News Solicitors Sinclair Taylor & Martin are warning charities to check on their fundraising event insurance following a recent ruling.A fundraising fair organised by the West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust included a “splat wall” against which people could hurl themselves. Unfortunately one participant was injured.The resultant court ruling decided that, although the accident happened on a sub-contractor’s equipment, the hospital owed a duty of care under Section 2 of the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 because the accident happened on its lands. Nevertheless, the hospital escaped liability.

Not only are PCC’s STEM programs dominated by Latino students, but women and first-generation students are also highly represented,” said Joshua Wyner, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program in Washington, D.C. “This reflects the college’s strong demonstrated commitment to making sure all students succeed both while in college and in promising careers after they graduate.”The program highlighted the following areas in PCC’s qualifications for the recognition:• A graduation/transfer rate of 49 percent, well above the national average of 39 percent;• A program that fast-tracks graduation by providing priority registration to students who are only a few courses short of completing their degree; and• First among California community colleges for the number of associate degrees for transfer awarded, for the number of associate degrees awarded, and for the number of associate degrees awarded to minorities.“This is an incredible honor for the faculty, staff, administration, and students of PCC,” said Rajen Vurdien, Ph.D., superintendent-president of Pasadena City College. “Our college has made enormous strides in serving the broad range of students that come to our campus, more than 75 percent of which are minority students, and 43 percent are the first in their family to attend college.“Much work remains to be done,” Vurdien continued, “but this recognition shows that our efforts are having an impact.”The $1 million prize fund will be awarded in March 2017 in Washington, D.C. to the winner and up to four finalists with distinction. (See complete list of finalists below.)The Prize, awarded every two years since 2011, recognizes outstanding institutions selected from an original pool of more than 1,000 public community colleges nationwide. With a singular focus on student success, the Prize assesses community colleges’ achievements in four areas: student learning, certificate and degree completion, employment and earnings for graduates, and access and success for minority and low-income students.Community colleges today enroll nearly half of all US undergraduates—7 million students—working toward degrees and certificates. This includes rapidly growing numbers of low-income and minority students. While fewer than 40 percent of all community college students graduate, Aspen Prize finalist institutions demonstrate that every community college can help more students achieve success while in college and after they graduate.This fall, the Aspen Institute will conduct a rigorous review process that includes examination of extensive data on performance and improvements in learning, graduation, workforce, and equitable outcomes for all students as well as multi-day site visits to each of the ten finalist institutions. Then, a distinguished Prize Jury of higher education experts will select a grand prize winner and up to four finalists with distinction.The 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence was awarded to Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. In 2013, Santa Barbara City College (California) and Walla Walla Community College (Washington) were co-winners. In 2011, Valencia College (Florida) was the inaugural Prize winner. According to the Prize rules, former winners were not eligible to reapply this cycle.The Aspen Prize Finalists selected today reflect the diversity and richness of American community colleges.The 2017 Aspen Prize Finalists (listed in alphabetical order):Two colleges have been named finalists in four consecutive Prize cycles (indicated with *) and two others were finalists for a second time (indicated with #)• Anoka-Ramsey Community College – Coon Rapids, MN• Broward College – Fort Lauderdale, FL#• Chaffey College – Rancho Cucamonga, CA• Indian River State College – Fort Pierce, FL#• Lake Area Technical Institute – Watertown, SD*• Northeast Community College – Northeast, NE• Odessa College – Odessa, TX• Pasadena City College – Pasadena, CA• San Jacinto College – Pasadena, TX• West Kentucky Community and Technical College – Paducah, KY*About Pasadena City CollegeSince 1924, Pasadena City College (www.pasadena.edu) has provided the San Gabriel Valley with a high-quality, innovative learning environment that inspires student success.
