HEALTH & WELLNESS ON THE NORTH ISLAND Being Human | PART 2 There is a mystery challenge in the gift that has been breathed into all of us, giving us life. And the heart and soul of it all is a hunger and an undying quest for the light. This living, natural wonder all around us somehow whispers of a perfect, unimaginable Union in a language human beings have never completely understood. And that unimaginable union lies somewhere beyond us in the light we were all born to find. Every human being that has ever lived has been engaged in this titanic battle between that dark unknown and the dream of union that is splendored everywhere in our natural world, and all universe itself. This is the real global conflict. And every human on earth is a warrior. It is simply about a lurking, primal ignorance that is buried deep within us all. It is that fatal ignorance masquerading as evil in our world that now threatens to destroy us, and carry us over the edge into the horror unknown of eternal extinction and dark, endless oblivion. We are all Human. Everyone on this earth struggles to get by, trying to protect and preserve our loved ones and the ever smaller part of us that still remains Human. And through it all to the end we still have faith that somehow it will all work out. Day after day we still continue on going to work and heading out to face the world and our lives that are ever more consumed. Ever more exploited. Ever more dehumanized. JAMES L. ANDERSON Darkness cannot put out darkness; only light can do that.” Martin Luther King quest for perfect unity are simply manifesting the dream and sacred destiny of universe itself. It is all the same. Everything is sacred. Everything belongs. Everything is connected. Somewhere in the essence of our humanity, and in the embryonic gift of our awakening minds the seeds are there. The dreaming potential for a New Human world is alive within us. Together we just have to find the light where it can grow. Thousands and thousands of years from this darkness, agony and terror that you and I rage through today, a new Human species and unimaginable, supreme future beings will look back through the long shadows of deep time and see the horrors of this age and know it as the time when our besieged life force began to evolve into a new Human species on this planet. And they will glory and celebrate it as the age when our life force finally gathered together and found the light.... And left the dark ignorance behind us forevermore. Relentlessly, we reach through the impenetrable darkness for the light. We just never seem to give up. Against all odds we still warrior on with indomitable faith that somehow we will triumph in this galactic battle. And we never even realize our human war between darkness and light and the NORTH ISLAND COMPASS | ISSUE 8

HEALTH & WELLNESS ON THE NORTH ISLAND FITNESS, ETC | CHAD BRAITHWAITE How Much Protein Do Women Really Need? Ladies, you may be eating a well-rounded diet, but are you getting enough protein to support your performance and physique goals? Here's what the latest research recommends. From hormones and enzymes to muscles and the immune system, every cell in your body contains protein. That's why it's so important to get enough in your diet. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight, or about 0.36 grams per pound. If you lift weights regularly, however, you can throw that RDA right out the window. Your body needs more protein to enhance recovery from training and to support muscle growth and maintenance. The problem is that "more protein" isn't exactly specific. For a long time, active women have been guessing as to the amount of protein they need to sculpt and maintain a lean, strong body. But the days of guesswork are coming to an end. Here's what I learned from a study done at The Performance & Physique Enhancement Laboratory at the University of South Florida. They have been studying how varying amounts of protein in the diet influences body composition in resistance-trained women. THE STUDY DETAILS In the study, two groups of women completed an eightweek strength-training plan. The program consisted of two upper-body training days and two lower-body training days per week. One group ate a high-protein diet; the other group ate a lower-protein diet. The high-protein group was instructed to eat 1.1 grams of protein per pound of body weight, including 25 grams of isolate whey protein powder before and after each training session. The lower-protein group was told to eat 0.55 grams of protein per pound of body weight, including only 5 grams of isolate whey protein immediately preand post-workout. Each participant was encouraged to consume the specific amount of protein each day, but they were allowed to eat as many or as few carbohydrates and fats as they wanted. At the end of the study, the women who followed a higher-protein diet gained significantly more lean body mass (4.6 pounds) compared to the lower-protein group (1.5 pounds). The higher protein group also lost more body fat than the lower-protein group, although this change did not reach statistical significance. In the next issue, I’ll talk about the implications of this study for wise fitness diet management. Chad is the owner of Fitness Etc.
