In this on going series of posts that cover nutrition and diet for college athletes we have talked already about how well athletes actually eat (or at least think they do), and of the critical importance of fueling up with a big breakfast.Today we are going to dive into something that is even more important, not only for high performance on the field and in the field, but in terms of, like, living.And that is the topic of water.

In a recent post on nutrition for collegiate athletes we discussed some of the benefits to cleaning up your diet (most notably, performance!), as well as showed some not-so-hot statistics and research that revealed collegiate athletes don’t eat nearly as well as they should.We’ve been told the importance of breakfast over and over, to ad nauseum, to the point that when we hear it now it tends to go in one ear, out the other.

In part one of this series of posts covering nutrition for college athletes we are going to quickly get into the benefits of eating better, and take a peek into research covering the dietary habits and knowledge of collegiate athletes.The upsides of eating well may seem obvious.After all, as athletes we are drilled from an early age on the importance of properly fueling up before practice and competition.Here are just four of the things that happen when we clean up our diet:

The first place to start is “Serving Size.”  I know many of us have heard about using your fist or your palm and that is all well and good when it comes to meat.  The serving size I want to discuss involves packaged food, any kind of packaged food.  Let us start with breakfast.  This is an easy one and it makes my point very clear.  The serving size is on the nutrition label.  And note that changes are forthcoming on these labels.

Hello everyone.  I am ready to admit I was a little harsh last week.  Nutrition is in fact very much like rocket science.  The body is a lot like a rocket.  It goes places we only once dreamed of.  Now, the question is, “what do we want to do moving forward?”  I think it is first very important to recognize where I am at.  I once was given an exercise by a dear lady friend of mine that has been ever so important to growth in my life since.  I was to look in the mirror, directly into the eyes of the image in the mirror – yep – i

If you started the year out with plans to diet, I urge you to rethink it.  I’ve been there.  I’ve gone on diets, I’ve done cleanses of sorts, I’ve trained for and run four marathons, I’ve taken supplements marketed to enhance fat loss, diuretics to remove ‘water weight’…I barely managed to stay within the weight standards my entire military career!   I was absolutely convinced the standards were unfair to women and to short people.  My point is that I wanted to change the way I looked by changing the mirror rather tha

I thought I would take some time to discuss finding health and fitness information on the internet. This is something that comes up all the time in conversations with my clients.

In almost every batch of headlines that come to my inbox, at least one is still related to 'New Years Resolutions.'  I personally have never been a resolution kind of person.  I am not sure what that means.  How does the day January 1st differ from what was a good idea on December 31st?  Or November 20th for that matter?  Nonetheless while many of us are talking about resolutions and goals for the year, here are a few points you may want to consider before jumping into the latest 'fix' -
