Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
Hi friends who like a challenge,Spring is in the air, I think. I actually am really confused lately when it comes to the weather. Is it going to be sunny or gray and does that even mean cold, cool or warm? I thought I would write a quick post to give you some background on me and the current 28-Day program. Read as much as you have time for. I am a full-time personal trainer/wellness coach of 15 years. I’m thankful to have the best job in the world.

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is weight loss.  And although there are a myriad of diets out there, one of the most common misconceptions is that you have to banish carbs to get the body of your dreams. This simply is not true.  Carbohydrates, or carbs as they are commonly referred to, are very much a necessary macronutrient that our body and brain need in order to function properly.  As a matter of fact, go too low in your carbs, and your lean muscle will suffer.

March is here.  Today I continue to be focused on the nutritional needs of our body.  Our food intake is not only about energy balance.  Recently a new field of study has emerged called “nutritional psychiatry”.  In an observational review of the data, Jacka (2017) notes that mood is not only effected by what we do eat especially during our emotional binges which are those times when we consume to excess (for both sad and happy occasions).  Our mood is also found to be effected by what you do NOT eat.   Once again, we are looking for a balance

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.
