Nutrition News: The new diabetic plate

The new Diabetes Plate by NCES combines three concepts in a plate that can be used on a daily basis to help a person living with diabetes remember how to manage their diabetes through diet and exercise. Here are the messages: – Portion control: This is a very important consideration for all of us, but especially for a person with diabetes. Keeping blood sugars in check often means only eating proper portions of foods from each food group. – Carbohydrate counting: More than just watching portions, a person with diabetes must keep track of the carbohydrates they consume. Because carbs play such a huge role in blood sugar levels, monitoring carb intake helps a diabetic control their highs and lows. – Physical activity: Managing diabetes through diet is only part of the equation. Maintaining a healthy weight and building a strong body is reliant on getting the recommended amount of physical activity. Fill half your plate with non-starchy vegetabales.Fruits count as part of your daily carbohydrate intake.For grains and starches, 15 grams of carbohydrates equals one serving. Try these: corn, potatoes, pasta, bread and brown rice.

Summer Football Nutrition With Mustard on the Sideline

Whey or casein protein are okay, but the popularly-used soy proteins are of concern because of their estrogen-mimicking behavior. Also commonly used are boiled animal scraps, which you can find on the label under the euphemisms of gelatin, hydrolyzed collagen or hydrolyzed gelatin.

Product Review: Complete Nutrition’s Mancore pack

After a summer of family vacations and dinner with friends, getting back into healthy eating habits is particularly challenging for the players as they endure rigorous summer practices. Its definitely a challenge because I cant go home with these guys every night, said Chris Haddock, head football coach at Centreville High School. I have to trust that what Im asking them to do and what the athletic training staff is asking them to do is what theyll do when they get home. When teams opened their training camps earlier this month, it was immediately apparent that poor eating takes a toll on these athletes. On our second day we had kids falling down with cramps already, said Stonewall Jackson High School head coach Mike Dougherty. Thats one of those things where we tell them time and time again what to do, but until you experience nutrition related failure, then all of a sudden youre tuned into it. In order to help young athletes make healthy choices, coaches often have to devote just as much time to nutrition tips as they do to installing blocking schemes. We try to be a resource for them, said Dougherty. Some kids can eat gummy bears and Twinkies and come out here and perform, but for most of them, we use our athletic trainer out here all the time to give them advice on how many calories they should be having. Schools like Centreville often create plans for players to follow as they try to stay consistent with their eating. We have the best trainers in the state of Virginia, said Chad Wiggins, a defensive end for Centreville.

I was intrigued at the beginning because while I have used testosterone supplements and fat burner products before, I have not used a product like their HGH spray.
