Weekend warriors and professional athletes – did you know that you can improve your athletic performance with whole beets? Of course the marketers and food manufacturers will continue to want you to buy their drinks and powders. But wouldn’t you rather eat inexpensive real food that acutely improves performance? I sure would! I know that the next time I go on a century bike ride I will be eating whole beets for breakfast.
Over the past 18 years I’ve had the pleasure of teaching hypnosis sports performance to weekend warriors, amateur competitors, professional athletes and to high school sports teams. When you learn self hypnosis, you can also learn to love beets!

Whole Beets vs. Juice for Improving Athletic Performance
Whole beetroot consumption acutely improves running performance. They gave physically fit men and women a cup and a half of baked beets, which is equal to about a can of beets, 75 minutes before running a 5k. They started out the same, but during the last mile of the 5k race, the beet group pulled ahead compared to the placebo group, who were given berries instead.
Though they were running faster, their heart rate wasn’t any higher. If anything, the beet group reported less exertion. Faster time with less effort? They don’t call them block-rocking beets for nothing.
How much money can companies make selling beets though? So, how about a novel beetroot-enriched bread product? We’ve tried to get people to eat their fruits and vegetables, and where has that gotten us? But hey, lots of people eat white bread, why not have them eat red bread? And, indeed, it worked; red beet bread brought down blood pressures, and improved the ability of arteries to relax and dilate naturally. Bread, therefore, may be an effective vehicle to increase vegetable consumption without significant dietary changes, because heavens forbid people should have to change their diet to improve their health.
You can easily learn self hypnosis to enhance your performance and to create desires for healthy whole plant based food
Maybe you aren’t interested in sports performance, but you can learn hypnosis to help get yourself off the couch and be more active. Ask your doctor if getting off the couch is right for you and then give me a call and schedule your first session.
