I don’t think there is an effective healthy eating regime that overlooks protein. For a meal or snack to be healthy and contribute to weight management and emotional regulation, I’d suggest it should be a combination of natural slow release carbs, healthy fat and a bit of protein. I’d also suggest that most healthy eating regimes are probably based around 6 meals a day (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack)
However, this often leads to “protein blindness”.
Every year some people attend a few food-based education sessions, sign up for a few exercise classes, turn over a new leaf, and voila a few months later they are at a healthy target weight. According to the obesity statistics, about 50% of the population are able to maintain a healthy weight, and a physique they are (presumably) comfortable with, without ever seeing a trainer or a weight loss expert. Some people so it seems, have a natural gift to maintain a balance between food and activity.
Assuming you don’t have a psychological/emotional connection with food, weight management is simple.
That said, I think 87% of people I see have a psychological/emotional connection with food, so this technical rundown won’t really help, but eventually, you’ll end up needing these skills.
The older your therapist or trainer, the more likely they are to muddle up what to call your tendon pain. The younger your trainer or therapist, the more likely they are to waste your time with an obnoxious mini-lecture if you use the wrong word.
A few years ago the word “tendinitis” was widely employed to describe pain located at the tendon which was associated with inflammation (Maffulli et al., 2003).
In our obsessive pursuit of stronger muscles and hearts, we’ve failed to understand how to train and feed connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage.
Almost everyone is told that the tendon doesn’t have much of a blood supply and takes ages to recover from an injury. We do nothing with this information.
According to the tales of “old housewives” and the assurances of hippies, food does have a supportive role in helping tendon pain resolve itself.
There are famous anti-inflammatory foods that, when combined with a healthier lifestyle and actually doing specific exercises, really, really helps.
On one level this article is speculation combined with exaggeration, optimism and good old fashioned hope.
It’s simply going to weave tendon pain together with current research on nitric oxide, glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) patches and beetroot.
Wish me luck!
