Whatever the sport, the nutrition must be on point!

 



    We all know that sports are tiring. They require increased amount of energy to complete (and compete in). It doesn’t matter if you are a swimmer, competitive lifter, football player, tennis player, martial artist or baseball player, your body needs specific amounts of nutrients to fuel your game. Depending on what you do, you may require more carbohydrates than another athlete. If you lift heavy, perhaps you are needing more protein to build muscles for a show. Every sport will have different nutritional needs based on the demands of that sport. On top of that, every athlete within the same sport will require different nutritional needs based on their own bodies. It keeps going. Different genders will have different needs as well as different ages. We can’t train an experienced athlete the same as a 13 year old beginner, obviously. However, the differences between 13 year olds and 15 year olds are important to take into consideration when programming.

Children, pre teens, and teenagers require different amounts of macronutrients to optimally function. On top of that, the pre teens and teens are already going through physiological changes so their bodies are working overdrive at baseline. We need to fuel that accordingly. Now lets look at sleep. We know that kids need more sleep. They just do. As stated before, their bodies are running wild all day everyday, lets add in school, school work and maybe work if they are old enough. The importance of rest and recovery is pushed on adult athletes and lifters, we have to focus on adapting programs for kids to accomodate that. We also need to let kids just be kids sometimes.

Take aways:
- Proper programming based on specific sport
- Proper Nutrition based on specific sport
- Proper programming based on individual in a particular sport.
- Proper Nutrition for kids
- Proper amounts of rest & recovery for everyone (increased amounts for kids)

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
