Pro­tein can aid your speed, as well as your re­cov­ery

UN­LESS YOU HAP­PEN to be a rein­deer, you’re un­likely to emerge from the Christ­mas pe­riod fit­ter than when it started. How­ever, ac­cord­ing to re­search pub­lished in the Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Nu­tri­tion, eat­ing foods high in choline, such as pork, beef liver, salmon and eggs can help pro­tect your liver from the kick­ing many of us tend to give it dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod. Drink­ing too much al­co­hol can lead to a buildup of fat in the liver, which, in turn, can lead to liver dam­age and/or di­a­betes. The nu­tri­ent choline, mean­while, keeps your liver lean. One of its key roles is to trans­port fat from the liver to other ar­eas of your body, where it can be put to bet­ter use.
