    Last week I sang the praises of protein and touted all the roles this powerful nutrient plays in our body.

    I often have clients who are considering a vegetarian diet (several years ago it happened to be a Redskins player) and more often than not they are worried they will not get enough protein if they give up meat. I quickly put this concern to rest by listing all the wonderful and delicious protein sources found in a plant-based diet.

    How Much Protein Do We Really Need?

    Contrary to popular ... Read More

    It’s been a crazy summer for my family and there hasn’t been much free time, so I’ve had to be creative with my workouts since I can’t always rely on going to the gym.

    Whether you have access to a gym or not, learning to work out without equipment is a must. Working out "naked" (ok, clothes are a must … we’re talking equipment here!) make your workouts portable, so it will eliminate many excuses to ditch the workout when your life takes you ... Read More

    I mentioned in my previous blog entry that I am teaching a sports nutrition course this summer. We began by studying the master nutrient, also known as carbohydrates (click here to read about the master nutrient in a past blog post). Now, my students and I have moved on to another very important nutrient: Protein.

    Protein has always enjoyed high esteem in the nutrition world. Both fats and carbs have had their time in the villain spotlight, a very ... Read More

    As a trainer, I preach to my clients every day and all day long about the things they should and should not do. I feel like a broken record sometimes but I know if I repeat myself enough, it will eventually sink in, right? Maybe I need to listen to myself more!

    This past week and last weekend I just wasn’t into my workouts. I did them but not with the same energy I usually have. I love to workout. Yes, I’m one of those crazy ... Read More

    I hope you have a new found respect for the "Master Nutrient" known as Carbohydrates. If you missed out on last week's post on why carbs are good, click here!

    This week I'd like to tell you about one of my favorite carb sources, Quinoa ('keen-wah').

    During Ancient times, the Incas considered Quinoa the "Mother of all Grains" because they believed it increased the stamina of warriors. In fact, I have introduced this "Warrior Fuel" to several of the Redskins Players and they love it!

    Talking to committed exercisers about the benefits of physical activity is like introducing a dedicated shopper to the joys of an anniversary sale at Nordstrom. After all, those who exercise are no strangers to the freedom you get by movement or to the sense of accomplishment felt at the end of a long walk or strength workout.

    Those uninitiated in the rewards of regular physical activity, however, remain skeptical. After all, how can something as basic as exercise not only improve your life today, but perhaps even also ... Read More
