What Are the Benefits of Lifting Weights at Night?
Burn More Bodyfat
According to a February 2009 “Flex” magazine article by Jim Stoppani, a study conducted in 2005 at the University of Southern Mississippi followed 16 males for 10 weeks. Half of the participants trained in the morning before 10 a.m. and half trained in the evening after 6 p.m.. The evening group decreased body fat by 4 percent. However the morning exercisers had no change in body fat. Although researchers were unsure as to the reason for the drastic difference, they theorized that working out at night may have increased metabolism at a time when it usually decreases.
Reading Women’s Health Magazine and i came across an article that says that wild rice is better than brown rice.
Contrary to what many people believe, wild rice is not a “rice” at all, but rather an aquatic grass. It has almost twice the protein content of the venerable brown rice (and nearly EIGHT times the protein of white rice!), and has only 83 calories for 1/2 cup cooked.
It has almost SIX times the amount of folic acid as brown rice(!), making it one of the best sources of the all-important folic acid that one can eat. The niacin content of wild rice is also a stand-out figure, with l.06 mg for 1/2 cup cooked. Potassium packs an 83 mg punch, and zinc, which is usually available in trace amounts, registers 1.1 mg.
While 1/2 cup cooked wild rice offers 1.5 grams of fiber, it contains 26 mg of magnesium, a healthy balance of B vitamins and only .3 grams of unsaturated fat. Small amounts of calcium and iron are also part of the wild rice picture .
A 1-cup serving of wild rice has 165 calories, 6.5 g of protein, .55 g of fat, 3 g of fiber, 21 percent of the daily value for folate, 17 percent of the DV for manganese, 15 percent of the DV for zinc, 13 percent of the DV for magnesium, 11 percent of the DVs for phosphorus, magnesium and niacin, and 7 percent of the DV for iron.
