When time is tight, grabbing an energy bar can certainly be better than skipping a meal. But, according to our registered dietitian, many are nutritionally similar to a fortified candy bar—high in sugar, low in fiber and nutrients, and expensive when compared to whole foods.For a healthful on-the-go snack, consider packing away homemade trail mix made with your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruits and whole-grain cereal. A little can go a long way, so try to limit your portion to a handful or two.
If you were to put bad gas, kerosene, diesel or water in your car that required quality unleaded gasoline, what do you think would happen? Kind of a silly question, I know.

He begins by explaining the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity. A food allergy causes a rapid, severe onset of symptoms while a food sensitivity yields delayed low-grade symptoms. The body’s reaction to an allergy vs.
Being a trainer means we have to be in tune with everything health and fitness. Trainers are constantly reviewing equipment, research articles, recipes, and so much more. If we are not reviewing these factors on a consistent basis then we are not doing our job.
