Nutrition Talks at the TSC
When it comes to improving your health, body and mind, exercise is only one part of the jigsaw. If you’re looking to lose some weight, gain some muscle or just improve your eating habits, then of course, nutrition plays a huge part.
The Tonbridge School Centre will be hosting a series on nutrition talks every Wednesday at 6.30pm throughout the month of May. The talks will last thirty minutes and will cover a range of different topics. The four talks are designed to complement each other and we would recommend attending all if possible.
GI, GL & The Truth About CHO (Carbohydrates)
What are low GI and high GI CHO? What is Glycaemic Load? Are there ‘bad’ and ‘good’ sources of CHO? Dan will guide you through and help you discover the truth about carbohydrates and answer any questions you have regarding your own personal CHO issues.
The Importance of Protein (Protein)
Protein is a vital macronutrient for anybody, but especially for people who exercise regularly. Simon and Oli will discuss what protein is composed of, why we need it and how much you should be consuming based on your personal goals.
Fat or Fiction (Fats)
Fat has suffered at the hands on the media for the past few decades and our personal trainers, Patrick and Emma intend to set the story straight. This highly important macronutrient is essential to bodily function and Patrick and Emma will discuss everything you need to know to leave yourself feeling informed and able to consume fat with confidence.
The last talk will utilise all of the knowledge previously discussed and provide you with an overview of tips to help you with planning your meals. Simon and Oli will share planning tips and give you some healthy meal ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks too.
