What Foods Should I Eat After Exercise?

Dietitian-Recommended Foods to Eat After a Workout
As new clients get started with fitness and nutrition programs, they often ask questions about what foods they should eat after exercise. It’s important to guide them in making the best food choices for both an optimal workout and the best recovery. Expertly designed nutrition programs are an important part of any fitness routine. When it comes to post-workout recovery nutrition: Carbohydrate and protein are a MUST after exercise, as they serve to decrease muscle and joint tissue damage (and no, a low carb protein shake does not suffice, even if it has upwards of fifty grams of protein)...

Nutrition for Rehab and Injury Prevention

If you're hurt, I know it can really mess with your psyche. Therefore, props to you for thinking about nutrition at all. The challenging part is balancing eating enough calories, and the right kind of calories, for healing and repair while still reducing overall calories to stay in balance with a lower energy expenditure. Eating the right kind of foods can expedite the healing process in two ways: 1) reduce inflammation by including foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and 2) include enough protein to repair damaged tissues as well as maintain lean muscle mass. Omega-3 fatty acids contain a substance called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) which is made into prostoglandins that signal the

Fiber & Fitness

As fitness professionals, you’ve probably encouraged clients to choose more whole grains. You’ve helped them add protein for recovery and satiety. You’ve pushed fluids before, during and after workouts for hydration. But have you spent enough time touting everyday wellness? May is a crazy month for us with traveling 3 out of 4 weekends, listing our house, writing proposals, finishing school work, picking up odd jobs, and in our spare time being parents. Normally that would leave us short-changing dinners and too tired to pack a wholesome lunch, but after a recent overnight trip to the ER for my husband left us with 1 hour of sleep, I have remained strong in my commitment to include more fiber in both of our diets. While everyone may not be as passionate about fiber as I am (it’s admittedly one of my interests on Facebook), it should be something we all strive to include in our diet. Why do we need fiber? Fiber is a type of food the body cannot digest. Unlike most carbohydrates,

The Power of Choice

Choice and control in menu planning isn’t just a nice-to-have any more. The power of choice when it comes to food preferences in nutrition planning is now a must for the success of your business! At some point you may have heard or seen the phrase ‘The Power of Choice’, and if you do an online search for this you’ll easily get a wealth of information on personal choice, life fulfillment, happiness, and so on. This relates of course to the choices we have in life (literally every second of the day) in controlling our own fate. The foundation for this power, in essence, is control. It’s the control of all of our actions and decisions that will dictate our future, but when we take the same principle and apply it to your business, it is the decisions you make and the control to dictate the future success of your clients. Lets just call this ‘future success’ what it really is in your line of work….. results ! Results that were the initial driving force behind why your clients’ initially came to you, and the motivation for their commitment to work with you week after week. As a fitness or health professional you do have the largest impact on your clients’ success

BCAA's and Their Effect as an Ergogenic Aid

Insulin and BCAA have been shown to be anabolic compounds via their augmentation of translation initiation when secreted or ingested before, during, or immediately after an acute resistance exercise (RE) bout. During prolonged aerobic endurance exercise, muscle glycogen may become depleted and the muscle may increase its reliance on BCAA for fuel. BCAA supplementation has been studied for its effects on.....
