Have you ever taken ibuprofen to reduce inflammation from an achy joint? I’m going to explain to you how you’re probably eating foods that increase the same components that ibuprofen tries to get rid of in the first place. But more importantly, how fixing that is going to make you leaner (and smarter), which leads to more confidence in the office, in the gym, and at home.
Then there is the other side of the coin. Those that don’t feel supplements are necessary and that all nutrients should come from the diet. In theory, this would be amazing. If all of our food was so pure and nutrient-rich that we could enjoy the yumminess while still obtaining everything we need for optimum brainpower and performance. Combatting this with one supplement is tough, but you can definitely get a head start with fish oil (get my cheat sheet for supplements here) http://www.OptimizeCEO.com/restaurantguide1
What You May be Shocked to Know
Our brains and our bodies run on a balance of omega 3s (fish oils) and omega 6s (canola oils, etc). They each have their jobs, but in short, we require more from omega 3s then we do from omega 6s. Our bodies thrive on a 1:2 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids, but in reality, most of us consume about a 17:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3. You can see immediately how this throws off the balance within our bodies. The truth is, we probably don’t even know what it feels like to be truly optimized with a positive omega 3 balance. And if we DID find that positive balance, we would be ridiculously more productive and LEANER.
Imagine being able to recover from a workout that normally makes you drained and sore. Think about if your body could process sugar without wreaking havoc on your organs and causing inflammation that makes you fatigued. But most of all, think about what it would mean to be leaner and SMARTER at the same time (link out to other fish oil article on brain here).
Fish-Oil Will Make you Leaner
When it comes time to be the best in business, how you look plays a part. An unmotivated professional with a dead-fish handshake is more than likely not going to close the deal. So what good is your brain power if you can’t back it up with the confidence that is reflective of a pinnacle of health.
Reduced Cortisol Means Better Business and a Better Mid-Section
Supplementation with fish oil will decrease your cortisol levels, plain and simple. This alone is going to drastically change how your body stores its energy (1). You see, when we are stressed out and cortisol levels are higher, our bodies tend to store fat in preparation for survival. This alone can be a tremendous cause of poor body composition, especially in highly stressed individuals that spend a lot of time behind a desk (i.e. businesspeople).
Fight your Genetics
Fish oil also is shown to suppress the lipogenic genes that are responsible for fat gain. This could literally mean that if you have a genetic predisposition to gaining some extra fat around the middle, fish oil could begin stopping that in it’s tracks.
