A Fighter's Weight Loss Diet

 

My favorite sport next to college football is mixed martial arts - specifically, the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

For the last three weeks, the UFC has aired specials called UFC Primetime leading up to the Welterweight Championship matchup between current champ Georges St. Pierre and Dan Hardy.  It gives a behind the scenes look at each of their training camps and showing how they prepare for their fights.

Tonight, in the final installment, it briefly touched on Georges St. Pierre’s nutrition regimen.  His personal chef says that as he’s cutting weight, he has “absolutely zero carbohydrates, zero sugar, and zero dairy“.  It showed her preparing a salmon steak, asparagus in lemon and olive oil, and some kind of salad.  (By “zero carbohydrate”, I take it to mean “zero grains”, since all fruits and vegetables contain carbohydrates.  This is often a misnomer for which even professionals are guilty - calling zero grain diets, “zero carb”.)

This is so eye-opening.

When we wanna lose weight, why not look to those who maintain a precise bodyweight and musculature just to earn a living?  Fighters and bodybuilders, for example.

Two-thirds of Americans are overweight.  Most have no idea how to change the scales.

On the other end of the spectrum are fighters and bodybuilders who compete in precise weight classes.  The welterweights this weekend are fighting at 170 pounds.  They can’t show up and say, “Ah!  I couldn’t drop those last 5 pounds, so I’m coming in a little heavier than expected.”  More importantly, it would be suicide to show up at the right weight, but to have lost muscle in the process.  (This is what so many people risk when they crash diet.  They drop weight, but not fat.  The weight is usually muscle.)

How is it that millions of people are baffled by weight loss, and others can manipulate their weights at will, down to the pound?

Motivation is something for another article.  But for this one, it’s insightful to know that the best in the world in the UFC Welterweight division sticks to a grain-free diet to drop fat and maintain muscle.   By any other name, you might call that a fighter’s version of the Phase One Diet.

(By the way - My wife watched tonight’s episode, and she said, “Wow, watching GSP train and eat makes me wanna stick to the plan.  You may wanna show some pics of this guy if you’re gonna write an article about it.  He’s solid!”  On that note, one more pic, which will hopefully be what we all see at the end of Saturday’s fight.)

Jual obat aborsi manjur dan ampuh menggugurkan kandungan kuat

Jual
obat aborsi
 obat penggugur kandungan
ampuh 100% manjur obat cytotec asli cara menggugurkan kandungan secara alami
dan tuntas tanpa efek samping dan tidak mempengaruhi kehamilan berikut nya,
cocok bagi wanita yang ingin melakukan aborsi dengan kehamilan yang tidak di
inginkan contoh nya korban pemerkosaan,tuntutan kerja,dll….smoga lekas selelai
permasalah anda dengan ada nya layanan kami.

Apakah
Legal Bagi Saya Untuk Menggunakan Layanan Ini?

Kebanyakan negara memberikan izin untuk mengimpor obat dalam jumlah yang
kecil, untuk penggunaan pribadi, dan tidak untuk tujuan komersial.

Perempuan yang tinggal di negara dimana hak-hak perempuan tidak
terpenuhi dan aborsi masih dibatasi, mereka dapat mengatakan bahwa mereka
mengalami keguguran jika mereka memerlukan bantuan medis. Tanda-tanda aborsi
medis sangat mirip dengan keguguran spontan dan sangat sulit untuk dideteksi
apakah perempuan mengkonsumsi obat tertentu.

Aborsi medis pada usia awal kehamilan sangatlah aman dan efektif. Resiko
aborsi medis sangat jauh lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan resiko kehamilan dan
persalinan. Jutaan perempuan di seluruh dunia telah merasakan keberhasilan
penggunaan mifepristone dan misoprostol untuk aborsi awal kehamilan. Bahkan
obat-obat ini tidak memiliki efek jangka panjang bagi kesehatan perempuan.

Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Resiko Yang Kecil

Komplikasi serius pasca aborsi medis sangat jarang terjadi dan jikalau
terjadi dapat ditangani oleh dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami.
Kemungkinan komplikasi yang sebenarnya sangat jarang terjadi adalah adanya
pendarahan hebat (0.2%) , infeksi (kurang dari 1%) dan berlanjutnya kehamilan
(0,3% sampai usia kehamilan 9 minggu). Komplikasi ini dapat ditangani oleh
dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami. Hal ini dikarenakan kasus
keguguran alami terjadi sebanyak 15-20% dari semua kasus kehamilan dimana semua
dokter memahami bagaimana menangani kasus keguguran alami – atau aborsi medis



Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Efektivitas Yang Tinggi

Kombinasi antara Mifepristone dan misoprostol memiliki efektivitas yang
tinggi, aman, dan berterima. Aborsi yang komplit (dimana artinya perempuan
tidak perlu perawatan tambahan) dapat terjadi dengan kemungkinan 98% jika
kehamilan masih di bawah usia 9 minggu.

Kira-kira 2-5% perempuan menggunakan kombinasi mifepristone dan
misoprostol membutuhkan perawatan medis tambahan untuk menuntaskan aborsi tidak
komplit, menghentikan kehamilan yang berlanjut, atau mengontrol pendarahan.

Penggunaan misoprostol saja untuk penghentian kehamilan awal dapat
membantu aborsi hingga komplit sampai 84%.

Aborsi medis yang dilakukan pada awal kehamilan jauh lebih efektif dan
aman.



Apakah
Aborsi Saya Berhasil?

Mayoritas perempuan dapat mendeteksi apakah aborsinya berhasil atau
tidak segera setelah menggunakan obat, karena tanda-tanda kehamilan hilang
dengan cepat dan/atau beberapa perempuan mungkin melihat embrio atau kantung
kehamilan. Bahkan jika perempuan merasa ia sudah tidak lagi hamil, penting
untuk memasatikan apakah aborsi berhasil. Perempuan dapat melakukan USG setelah
aborsi medis atau melakukan testpack 3-4 minggu setelah aborsi.



Kapan
Saya Dapat Berhubungan Seks Lagi?

Untuk pencegahan infeksi, perempuan disarankan untuk menghindari
memasukkan benda apapun ke dalam vagina selama kurang lebih satu minggu setelah
aborsi medis.

Jika anda ngin membeli obat aborsi (obat penggugur kandungan) di
wilayah anda masing2 agar pesanan bisa langsung di terima anda bisa mengakseh
obat aborsi di kota besar ini.
