Maintaining Your Diet While Bowling
There is so much fun to be had while bowling that many people don’t care whether the pastime is congruent with their diets. For those and everyone else, there is good news: bowling and maintaining a diet can and do go hand-in-hand.
The Foods You Want
It obviously depends on the type of diet you are on, but with the vast majority of diets, the food you typically get at a bowling centre can easily align with your objectives. Many diets in recent years involve the reduction of carbohydrates. Reducing the amount of carbs you eat has a few different benefits. For one, it helps reduce the chances of exacerbating or causing diabetes. It also forces your body to digest more of the fat in your body as the carbs get used up and don’t get replenished.
At a bowling centre, you can easily find foods that are low in carbs. When you go, you may have spent the day keeping your carbs low. This would put your body in a state where it’s carb-famished, which is great for burning fat. If you choose to eat chicken wings or chicken fingers, you can continue to take advantage of your carb-starved state because these consist primarily of protein. Your body will also have a harder time digesting the protein and burn more calories while doing so.
There are some food to avoid as well. Carbonated beverages, with the exception of carbonated water and diet sodas, are going to give your blood a spike in carbs. This will make it so your body focuses on burning these calories instead of the fat you want it to be metabolizing. Also, foods like nachos that are high in both fat and carbs should be avoided.
However, if you do it right, you can easily augment and even improve on your diet while enjoying your time in the lanes.
