“A full and fair farm bill must include farm, food and nutrition, conservation, commodity and crop insurance reforms, and rural economic development programs,” the letter said. “It must also provide renewed and enhanced funding for the now-stranded but critical subset of programs that assist the most chronically underserved segments of agriculture and our rural and urban communities.” Gronski said the rural life conference was likely to sign on to the letter, which was circulated by an organization calling itself GOAT, short for Getting Our Act Together on the Farm Bill. “The House Republicans are pushing very deep cuts in SNAP,” said the Rev. David Beckmann, a Lutheran minister who heads Bread for the World, a Christian citizens’ anti-hunger lobby. “The $20 billion cut that the House Agriculture Committee recommended is equivalent to doing away with half the food charity in the country for the next 10 years. … And that wasn’t enough when it came to the floor.

The good news is that its hard to take in too many electrolytes while running a marathon. On the contrary, too much fuel can prove detrimental and result in an upset stomach or lack of gastric emptying, which leads to a lack of desire to drink. During my first marathon, I took in a product that was very high in fuel and it led to my stomach not absorbing the calories properly. Due to the working muscles requiring more of the bodys overall blood volume, the gut gets very little help when working close to threshold effort. I would get to the designated water stations and have no desire or inclination to drink because my stomach still felt full from what I took in three miles earlier. Inevitably, I ran low on electrolytes, slowed over the last few miles and suffered from severe muscle tightness after the race.

Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar has directed the film. “I am super excited that Kareena, Karisma and Saif are all part of the film. It’s a casting coup of sorts,” Diwekar said in a statement. “What is more important is that we are sharing our common belief that eating right, eating local, seasonal, fresh and tasty food is integral to looking good, feeling light and happy. And like Saif often says – happy people are most attractive, not skinny,” she added. Diwekar is a nutritionist who takes care of many celebrity clients. Richa Chadda and Anupam Kher are also part of the film. Related Content
