The following general non medical nutrition information and resources found with many hours of research, will help with principles of good nutrition and food preparation, food to be included in the normal daily diet, essential nutrients needed by the body, recommended amounts of the essential nutrients, actions of nutrients on the body, and the effects of deficiencies or excesses of nutrients, and food and supplements that are good sources of essential nutrients. (Diabetics. Ohio Rev, Code Ann x 4759-2-01 (M),2006)
Along with the general non medical nutrition information the video of today’s WOD includes Yoga, so education yourself on nutrition, let me know if you have any questions and relax.
To begin, let me tell you as an Exercise Physiologist I can answer questions like:
What kind of protein should I eat?
- As an Exercise Physiologist I encourage my clients to eat lean protein (Seafood, White-Meat Poultry, Eggs, Beans, Pork Tenderloin) and nutrient-rich vegetables (Garlic, Parsley, Chive, Red Pepper, Broccoli, Carrot, Tomato, Cabbage);
What are the benefits of protein, healthy fats and other macronutrients?
- Educating clients about the benefits of protein (Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues), healthy fats (Healthy Fat Resource Here), and other macronutrients (Proteins, Fats and Carbohydrates) is totally in my wheelhouse of being and Exercise Physiologist;
What are some healthy recipes for weight loss and what is food prep?
- These two links offer my clients awesome recipes (Great Source Here) and this link demonstrates some basic food prep skills: Awesome Food Pre Video Here;
What are healthy supplements?
- I let clients know about evidence-based nutritional supplements that might increase their healthy lifestyle (B Vitamins and Berries, Multivitamin/Mineral Supplements, Omega-3 Fatty Acids & Cancer/Asthma/Cardiovascular Disease, Soy, Vitamin D);
What are the pillars of good nutrition?
- Educate them about the pillars of good nutrition and provide them with strategies to improve their eating habits (Awesome Break Down of The Pillars Here);
What are good foods to eat before and after workouts?
- Helping clients choose the right foods to eat before and after workouts (Perfectly mapped out article here) is something I do often (Hence why I created this entire post);
How much water should I drink?
- Suggest to my clients to drink water to stay hydrated. Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. That’s about 1.9 liters, which isn’t that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations;
What are good websites for nutrition information?
- Doing research is something I crave, therefore I share resources from recognized nutrition organizations such as The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the American Heart Association, and present nutritional information in an accessible, down-to-earth way that makes sense to my clients. Basically in a way that engages them rather than makes their eyes glaze over.
As you can see, I’m not diagnosing health problems nor prescribing nutritional interventions to treat diseases or symptoms.
Basically, I communicate with my clients about nutrition matters (Not only to me but legally too). Let’s compare with a few examples:
- CANNOT “prescribe a diet” to “treat someone’s obesity”.
- CAN “share a few nutrition ideas” to “support their healthy lifestyle”.
- CANNOT “diagnose diabetes” and give a “manage blood sugar” diet.
- CAN “share a recipe” for a tasty, high-fiber, slow-digesting meal.
- CANNOT “recommend fish oil” for “treating arthritic knee pain”.
- CAN “share evidence” that “fish oil supports healthy movement”.
So the next time you’re looking for nutritional advice from me, be sure to come back to this WOD because that’s where I’ll send you anyway. Wink Wink
