Laying with my sausage in the sun 16/3/15

 

Or should I say my girlfriend’s sausage

 

Don’t worry she’s not had a secret op

 

I’m talking about her dachshund

 

The Maxster!

 

I just got back home and I feel absolutely shattered today

 

Weird Fitness Camp dreams have been haunting my sleep!

 

So I laid down in the sun to play with the snausage for a few minutes

 

And it reminded me to remind you of the importance of Vitamin D

 

See most people have heard of it

 

But alot of people don’t realise WHY it’s important

 

(Or how to get it)

 

So here’s how it goes:

 

Sunshine reacts with Cholesterol in your skin to produce Vit D

 

It can also be gotten from the diet or supplements

 

But to get enough from the diet is tough

 

And things are always best got the natural way

 

So exposing yourself to sunlight during the warmer months is uber important

 

Especially when you consider that up to 40% of the adult population are deficient in it

 

^^^ And that’s pretty serious!

 

Being as vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption

 

So if you don’t want to develop osteoporosis and other bone related problems

 

Then you need to be getting enough

 

On top of that Vit D improves insulin sensitivity

 

Meaning that your body can better manage sugar (carbohydrates)

 

And it makes you feel good and will speed up your results

 

Aswell as a whole host of other benefits, that I won’t go into too much detail on right now

 

Bottom line… It’s VERY important

 

Best dietary source to get it from is Cod liver oil

 

And like I said you can supplement with it too

 

Just make sure that you get oil capsules (of D3) if you do though (as it’s a fat soluble Vitamin)

 

But the best source is the sun

 

So over the next few months be sure to expose as much of yourself as you can…

 

Without getting arrested

 

Just be sure NOT to burn!

 

If you are looking to supplement with it

 

My suggestion would be 5000IU’s in the winter

 

And at least 2500 in the summer

 

RDA’s are ridiculously low!

 

You would have to take a stupidly large amount to build up to a level of toxicity

 

It just won’t happen!

 

So if you want to avoid the long list of problems that come in part with a deficiency of Vit D then my advice to you would be:

 

One – To get decent exposure to sunlight at every available opportunity.

 

Two – To start taking a table spoon of Cod liver oil every day and at least 2500IU’s in supplement form (Oil capsules of D3)

 

You can always get a blood test done if you’re concerned about a deficiency

 

But we live in England so it’s highly unlikely that you’re already getting enough

 

Unless you’re already doing the things talked about

PS. Fitness Camp packages are set to change next month

 

So April will be the final time for you to get on board with how things are now

 

(They obviously stay the same for people already with us)

 

So if you’re looking to shape up for summer

 

And you want to get on board with one of the current packages

 

Then now’s the time to make a move

I’m also thinking about doing a later evening camp

 

Around 7:15-8pm

 

Just a thought at the moment, but something I’d like to get an idea of demand for incase I decide to go ahead with it

 

So if you’re interested, or you know someone that would be

 

Just let me know :)
