Food and Addiction

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that whether it be drugs, alcohol, sex or food the nature of the addiction is the same. The behaviour is compulsive and the obsessions of the overeater are the same as the obsessions of an alcoholic.

If you have a tendency to binge eat or use food as a comfort tool, stop for a moment and be truthful about it with yourself. Ultimately, the only person who can change your behaviour is you.  At Broadway Gym we have one of the best weight loss systems around, but the onus is on you to use it.

We will give you all the tools and support, but don’t rely on support. If you want to do something badly enough, you’ll do it. Support won’t be there for the rest of your life.

    Yes Broadway. I agree. I have however, found that when I need to clean up my life, binge eating and lifting weights gets me off alcohol or cigarettes. I feel strong and healthier. Then once I feel in control, I clean up my diet. I end up in good health. Giving up anything takes a stress on the body and i find that if you go one vice at a time its easier. And lifting weights is such a stress relief and demands rest that it is easier to get through those nights you are craving your vice. Hope this helps someone.

    Addiction is the last thing you’ll want to deal with in your life. One of my friends used to be healthy and hard working until she lost her job. She then started binge eating until she almost lost her life due to high triglyceride and cholesterol. She is gradually gaining her health now.

Your body works on a sodium-potassium exchange; It is estimated that you need a minimum of 500mg per day. The problem is the processed salt added to processed foods. So if your diet is clean and free of processed rubbish, adding salt can be a necessity. Salt and fat will bloat you, but simple sea
Caffeine has been demonised over the last few years and wrongfully so. It’s classed as a psychoactive drug and blocks the effects of adenosine which sends signals to your brain that you’re tired.

This could sound contradictory, but the two are not mutually exclusive. Yoga has so many benefits for the average bodybuilder, it’s unbelievable. Firstly stretching the fascia promotes muscle growth. Stretching the muscle fibres help contraction. Increased mobility allow you to work the muscles through a greater range of motion. Realigning the body is essential for
There’s a lot written, and rightly so, about the science of bodybuilding. Anyone who thinks they can just go into a gym and swing the heaviest weight around they can find and look like Arnold Schwarzenegger is kidding themselves.

Arnold Schwarzenegger found out how strong he was shortly after he won his first Mr. Universe title. He was asked by a friend to hold a baby – he said after five minutes he thought his arms were going to drop off. The average mother holds her baby for hours every day and has an
