    02.22.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Occasionally, I would like to invite a guest blogger to join us in the WOW Nutrition Corner so this week I’d like to introduce my colleague, Christine Turpin RD, LDN, CSCS. Christine has assisted me with both the Redskins players as well as the University of Maryland Terrapin Football team. She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach as well as a Sports Nutritionist and owner of Nourish2Perform, a personal training company that specializes in integrating both fitness and dietary coaching in one to maximize a client’s results.

  • Strong to the Bone! Exercise and Osteoporosis

    02.21.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer (ACE); IBNFC Certified Nutrition Coach

    Osteoporosis is an age-related disorder in which the bones become gradually thinner and porous and over time, are less able to support the weight of the body.

Women tend to suffer more severely because they start with a lower bone density, lose more bone mass as they age and bone loss accelerates even more rapidly following menopause ... Read More

    For many moms-to-be, the news of pregnancy is filled with excitement, anticipation, anxiety and a promise to do everything right for the little bundle of joy. The question of whether to continue or begin an exercise program for your health and the baby often comes up.

    The first step to help answer this question is to check with your doctor. While exercise during pregnancy is usually encouraged, under some circumstances exercise should be avoided to prevent risks to the fetus and the mother. Only after a thorough ... Read More

    This month, I will be focusing on issues relating specifically to women. I’ll touch on menopause, pregnancy, osteoporosis and the importance of muscle building in women. We are unique and have unique conditions we need to consider when related to exercise.

    Exercise and Menopause

    There was a time when the word menopause was never spoken, not even between mother and daughter. Menopause, still referred to as “the change” in some circles, is no longer a taboo subject. And nowadays most women can expect to live one-third ... Read More

    By Jane Jakubczak MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN; Redskins Team Dietitian

    Last week we discussed the controversy surrounding sugar in our diet. We looked at the difference between ADDED sugar and NATURAL sugar (click here to read last week's post). This week I’d like to address the category of sugar known as artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes.

    I would like to preface this discussion with the fact that as a dietitian, I promote and encourage a diet filled with minimally processed, whole foods eaten in their most natural state. I believe Mother Nature provides an abundance of ... Read More
