 Article Title :: U.S. RDA vs. Optimal Health
Recently attempts were made to make food labels easier to read. Everyone is familiar with the boxed information on our food packaging that provides information about the nutritional content of the food inside. It tells you the serving size, calories, and percent of the US RDA, which stands for the United States Recommended Daily Allowances, which this food product meets. But many people wonder what are those “recommended daily allowances” based on?The percentage of US R.D.A. is based upon a 200 pound, average sized man on a 2000-calorie diet. They are also based on the amount of vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients to provide “adequate” health for this man. Acco  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Eat Right For the Holidays
With the holiday quickly approaching, I'd like to give you 7 quick tips on getting through the feasting without sabotaging your weight loss efforts.1) Eat as much vegetables and pumpkin as possible...*before* the turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Pumpkins, onions, celery, sweet potatoes, yams, squash, green beans, and fruits such as cranberries and apples are high in fiber and tend to make you fuller faster. The presence of these foods in your gut will also decrease fat absorption from the other more fatty foods, such as the meats and cheeses, so prioritize consumption of these foods, and get them on your plate before the others.2) Eat slow. Eating slowly allows you to fee  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 5 Nutritional Tips to Burn Fat
I’m going to give you 5 practical tips to turn your body into a fat-burning machine – information that you can take with you and implement on a daily basis, both in and out of the gym or workout environment. Rather than quantify specific amounts, I’ll be giving you some simple ideas. Let’s get right to it:Eat Fiber A high-fiber diet decreases fat and cholesterol absorption in your intestine (preventing fat storage), slows glucose absorption in the bloodstream (meaning more sugar gets burnt as energy, less gets stored as fat), stabilizes insulin levels and delays stomach emptying (both of which decrease your appetite), and makes you full faster (so you eat less).

 Article Title :: Carbs, Fat, and Protein for Athletes
I remember once attempting to fill a ziplock bag full of honey for a 100 mile ride in 90 degree heat. Needless to say, the result was sticky and unpleasant, and definitely not as handy as a race gel. I've known other people to use peanut butter and jelly sandwhich squares, snickers bars, graham crackers, and a host of other strange snacks. But while there are multiple theories and methods of hydrating and fueling during a training or racing session, the concept remains the same. If you are able to deliver the right nutrients to the muscles at the right time, you can enhance several components of both performance and recovery. Of course, these nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, and   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Winter Sugar Blues
Every year, I notice that at this time of year we tend to eat more sugar. My clients all talk about it – the holiday parties, the well-meaning corporate gifts of cookies and chocolates, the holiday meal desserts.It’s not just the November/December holidays, either. Do you know what I’m talking about? Your sugar feast actually begins at the end of October, as the weather gets colder, the days get shorter, and you fill your goodie bag with Halloween treats. Then you have Thanksgiving pies, Christmas cookies, and New Year’s drinks. The sugar intake continues with Valentine’s Day chocolates, and extends all the way to Easter ba  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Water: The Most Profound & Underrated Nutrient
Why do most Supermodels walk around with a bottle of water? Do they know something that we don’t? Is that how they stay so thin? Are they doing it to be chic or do they really believe in the value of drinking it? I don’t know about all that, but I do know this: there is not one single nutrient more important than water.You can operate without your protein powder. You may find enough energy to get through your next workout without a sports drink. You can even sustain heavy workouts for days and days without eating properly. But you can’t stay alive without water.If there is one mistake that many, many beginning bodybuilders make it would be their lack of proper w  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Eat Your Carbs, They're Good for You!
You may think after all of the talk lately about carb reduction that you need to avoid eating carbohydrates. But the exact opposite is the case. The kinds of carbohydrates you get from fruits and vegetables are a necessary basis of your daily diet. Instead of helping you “pack on the pounds,” they actually help you to burn fat. They are also a major source of fuel for your body, especially your muscles, brain and nervous system.Carbs occur in two types: simple and complex. They are broken down into glucose, or blood sugar, which is metabolized by your body for energy. Glucose not immediately used by you is stored in your muscles as glycogen, but if your body has an excess of gl  (read full article)

 Article Title :: How Much Protein Should You Eat?
Don’t sacrifice your carbohydrates for a high protein diet, and think twice before “bulking up” those biceps with protein to look better at the gym. Your daily diet shouldn’t contain more than 30% protein ideally, because an excess of it will do you more harm than good. So says Gail Butterfield, Ph.D., director of Nutrition Studies at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Medical Center.Dr. Butterfield says that excess protein in your diet may have harmful effects. If you increase protein without adding more calories and exercise to your daily life, instead of building muscle mass you will put your other body systems under undue stress. And eating more protein while increas  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Artificial Sweeteners: A Closer Look at Aspartame -- Part 1
Moderation is the key to everything in life. This is true with sweeteners too. We have read and heard of all the dangers of Aspartame. Remember… everything CAN be dangerous. For example, studies have shown that fish is good for you; however, I have friends and family that have major allergic reactions to fish even to the point of not breathing! You might say, ”But these are isolated cases…” Well, let’s see what has been said about Aspartame. This page was titled: “Aspartame – Most dangerous of all sweeteners!” Here is the report by Dr. H.J. Roberts, Aspartame (NutraSweet) Is It Safe?, Charles Press, page 283/84.“Aspartame, a dipeptide of aspartic acid and a met  (read full article)
