Eating Well When You’re A Road Musician

For several years it was a struggle for me to choose one diet regimen plan or one more because there was so much contradictory information about the nature of great nourishment in all of guides I read. The task of developing one’s very own correct consuming program came to be even more tough for me when during the training course of study it was very easy to find several “experts” negating each other. So exactly what I want to show you right here is a nutritional program that is a lot more scientific compared to viewpoint and I hope you’ll see its merits from my presentation.

This collection of short articles is meant to be a complement to my short article series “Smart Actions for Musicians,” which is where I offer my suggestions for the best exercise routine to suit the artist’s way of life. Frequently it holds true that because the artist’s way of life needs remaining sedentary for lengthy hours, travel, inaccessibility to wholesome foods, and also simple accessibility to alcohol and drugs, it is necessary to neutralize the effects of these practices with regular workout and premium nutrition.

Food incorporating is the way to premium nutrition. Food integrating is the art and also scientific research of taking our expertise of the human digestion system and also the personality of natural foods to accomplish premium nutrition. When food combining is not put into practice by people or entire societies and the human gastrointestinal system is treated as a waste disposal unit, after that the body begins to undergo mild to acute types of dietary deterioration leading to a weakened physical constitution and eventually prevalent condition.

Food Kind and also their Personalities

Let’s start with fruits. As a whole, it’s best to consume fruits alone and also on a vacant belly. The reason for this is fruits in the sweet, sub-acid, and melon teams digest really swiftly relocating swiftly via the belly and right into the intestines where the basic sugars are damaged down for an instant ruptured of power. Acid fruits, on the other hand, put on hold the enzymatic secretions in the stomach needed for food digestion and prevent their activity for a duration of at least 3-4 hours.

Proteins in general are shown to pair best with non-starchy vegetables and also rather well with mildly-starchy vegetables. Grab your best fork and favorite knives, and dig into a well-balanced meal, for a well-balanced performance.  Likewise, carbs are likewise shown to pair best with non-starchy veggies as well as rather well with mildly-starchy vegetables. Yet the pairing of healthy proteins with carbs is strongly inhibited. Fat and oils are also shown to combine well with non-starchy and mildly-starchy vegetables, while additionally offering a fantastic combine with carbohydrates (starches). Integrating fats as well as oils with proteins is highly prevented.

These food mixes designate the right blends of foods that enable the body to work successfully to give itself with nutrition. Because these mixes do not interrupt or disrupt the body’s capacity to damage down the food it is given, the body is able to obtain from its food all the nutrients the foods are capable of delivering. A gastrointestinal system unburdened from unnecessary disturbances from bad mixes or unhealthy food, is a gastrointestinal system that helps with superior nutrition.


AC nominated by IKWRO for a True Honour award for ‘True Story’

Congratulations to AC for being nominated by IKWRO for a True Honour award for his song ‘True Story’.

The awards are held annually by IKWRO (the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation) who are one of the foremost campaign groups against forced marriage and ‘honour’ based violence in the UK.

AC’s nomination recognises the ground-breaking nature of ‘True Story’, the first track by a British Asian artist to tackle the subject of forced marriage and mixed-race relationships head on.

True Story was the track that inspired the creation of BANG Music, and we hope that many more artists will take a stand in the near future. It is worth noting that ‘True Story’ is the ONLY British Asian track this year to be nominated for ANY award outside the AMAs or Brit Asia awards (where the track was not nominated at all). This is a first taste of the kind of outside recognition that awaits any artist brave enough to tackle these subjects.


A True Story: AC at the IKWRO True Honour Awards

On Thursday 6th of December 2012, British Asian rapper AC attended the IKWRO ‘True Honour Awards‘ where he was nominated for his song ‘True Story‘.

Ash B from B.A.N.G. Music also attended the awards with AC, as did Jonathan Bishop who plays Sunita’s boyfriend in the video to ‘True Story’.

AC got an extremely warm reception at the event from everyone who attended, including very senior campaigners and legal professionals (see below for more details*). His certificate was presented to him by Jasvinder Sanghera of Karma Nirvana. ‘True Story’ touched everyone who had heard it, and the guests at the awards all thought very highly of AC. He is the first ever male nominee for a True Honour Award.

It was also formally recognised on the night that this nomination was a salute to all the DJs who had given the song radio airplay.

The reception given to AC and ‘True Story’ at the True Honour awards illustrates the kind of positive response that awaits every other Asian artist or media personality who has the courage to speak out against forced marriage and ‘honour’ based violence.

Especially now in 2013, after the shocking and horrific murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey AKA ‘Damini’ in India, there is a huge demand for positive and empowering messages about Asian women’s rights from within UK the Asian music scene.

B.A.N.G. Music was set up to try and inspire more artists to speak out, and we hope that AC’s success at these awards will encourage more artists to follow in his footsteps. The challenge has been laid down: ‘True Story’ is the first and so far the most successful record to tackle forced marriage.

Can anyone beat it?
