    Dietary Sodium, or salt, is a nutrition topic that is often overlooked. Most people don’t think about sodium content in their food until they are told they have high blood pressure (also known as hypertension), but did you know that if you reduce your sodium intake now you can actually reduce your risk of ever getting hypertension?

    Hypertension is not just for the elderly or the overweight. I have recently worked with two Reskins players on managing their hypertension. They are both young and fit - proof that all ... Read More

    The frustrating reality is that even well planned weight loss efforts can become stalled and being stuck at a certain weight can happen to anyone. Weight loss plateaus occur when you no longer lose weight despite continuing to exercise and eating healthy. Before you get too discouraged, you should know that it’s normal for weight loss to slow and even stall. At this point, you need to ask yourself if you’re satisfied with your current weight or if you want to lose more, in which case you ... Read More

    By Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer

    A complete, safe and effective fitness program includes various components, however there are three that stand out above the rest. Aerobic exercise, muscular strength and endurance conditioning, and flexibility exercise work together to make up an effective fitness program and are perhaps the most important components to consider when determining your fitness routine.

    Aerobic exercise does good things for your cardiovascular system and is an important part of weight management. Muscular conditioning can improve strength and posture, reduce the risk of low-back injury and is an important component of a weight management ... Read More

    There's still a few months to go until Spring time, which unfortunately means a few more months of cold weather and flu season. Luckily the Redskins team nutirionist, Jane Jakubczak, has some tips on how to keep your immune system strong throughout the winter!

    What is the immune system?

    The body’s defense system against foreign substances such as viruses and bacteria.

    How can we keep our immune system strong?

    - Plenty of rest
    - Proper hygiene
    - Adequate physical activity
    - Good nutrition

  • The “scoop” on Energy/Nutrition Bars

    By Jane Jakubczak, Washington Redskins Team Nutritionist

    I am often asked about the various energy and nutrition bars on the market today. These bars can play an important role in the “always on the go” lifestyle most of us lead. I am a true believer in “real food first,” however when you are in a pinch, a carefully selected commercial bar can play a part in a healthy nutrition plan.

    The original energy bars were designed with the busy athlete in mind. The bars were developed to be a portable, non-perishable, easily digestible source of nutrients to fuel ... Read More
