A banana might reasonably replace sports drinks for those of us who rely on carbohydrates to fuel exercise and speed recovery, according to a new study comparing the cellular effects of carbohydrates consumed during sports.
Researchers interviewed 501 couples who were trying to get pregnant without medical assistance. The participants kept diaries on their diet and other health and behavioural habits, including fish consumption. The researchers followed the pairs for a year or until pregnancy. They found that men who had two or more 4-ounce servings of fish a week had a 47 per cent shorter time to pregnancy, and women a 60 per cent shorter time, than those who ate fewer servings a week. By 12 months, 92 per cent of the couples who ate fish twice a week or more were pregnant, compared with 79 per cent among those who ate less. The study, in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, controlled for age, education level, smoking, alcohol intake, physical activity and other factors.
