This is "my" mashed&smashed up personal blog where I try to post useful stuff for people that are into sports, people that want technology to for for them and not vice versa, people looking for solutions to mobile phone problems especially Nokia and Android related, people that are interested in SEO in making money online and more...

Sports Cookbook

The title of this blog goes food, recipes, sports and so on but these first three are enough to make this post. I like cooking... well actually I don't like cooking that much, I like cooking simple things that still taste great. I don't like complicated meals that leave you with piles of dirty dishes. And I like sports. Food in sports is very... VERY important. You are what you eat and if you want to take your favorite sport a bit more seriously you need a sports cookbook.

I you talk to a bodybuilder he will tell you that hm... (insert a really big % here) of the bodybuilding is food. Another big % is rest and the rest is training. If you are not after your muscles this changes a bit, but still you get the idea.

Professional athletes even bring their own cooks to contest since what they eat is crucial to their success. As a recreational surfer, snowboarder, mountain climber... you wouldn't go that far but it's funny how you can notice a difference in your abilities if you start using a sports cookbook to balance your diet.

Sports cookbook is full of recipes and advice on hoe to use them to peak your nutritional status and performance. How to plan your menus, how to load on the carbohydrates before the contests (or of course before your next trip to the mountains, before your next 5 hour session..whatever you do, this works!), what to eat when training and what to eat when you want to recover after your exercise.

A good sports cookbook will also tell you the dangers that can be results of poor food intake and extreme stress, how can you replace calcium, get rid of tiredness and dehydration and even thing we talk at the beginning - how to bulk up (and lose weight if you want to).

Eating healthy sports food is cool. But being on a diet, any sort of diet is only "fun" if the food you eat is good and there are a variety of meals available. Nobody wants to eat the same stuff every day. Yuck, you get tired of anything, even the best food in town. And no matter what some people think and say, I don't thin eating the same food every day can be healthy. Your body needs variety. So this is where a good sports cookbook comes in - it gives you lots of ideas for meals that you know have been thoughtfully put together to boost your sport abilities.

Next time I'll try to list a few sports cookbooks that you can use.

Kelly Slater: For the Love

Kelly Slater: For the Love is the title of the new book about Kelly Slater. Those of you that don't follow surfing so much (well to be honest you could also hear about him from other sources, like dating really hot models, being a celebrity...) Kelly Slater is the best surfer of all times. This year he has won his 9th (NINTH!!!) world title and is at the same time the youngest and the oldest surfer to ever win a world title. By doing this, he is not only the best surfer of all times, he is right there at the top of the best sportsmen of any sport. Who else has won 9 world titles? There could be some dispute that surfing is easier that some other sport or less competitive. Well.. I just invite you to drop into a death pit at Teahupoo and you will be right back playing soccer and feeling safe.

But his wins are not all there is to Kelly Slater. By being who he is he is also responsible for transforming surfing into a sport that it is today. So a new book about Kelly Slater is sure worth reading. His first autobiography Dreams from the Pipe is a few years old now and since then Kelly has won another world title or two :) so For the love has a few more stories to tell.

And a short tip if you are following this blog (muhahaha, this blog is desert within a desert, I know) because of all the great tips I give on how to help your sites perform better... the title of Kelly Slaters book should be pretty easy to rank for, especially since I already have a site dedicated to Kelly Slater. So far we sit somewhere at the bottom of the first page which suck since search volume for this book is mediocre. Which is sad in fact. If a book would come out about Brittney Spear I'm sure it would be all over the news. And who is 9 times world champion :)?

Well maybe it is for the best, we do not need more people in the lineups.

Till next time...taada.
