    This week I began teaching a Sports Nutrition Course at the University of Maryland. I love teaching this class because it allows me to focus on the basics of nutrition, the very information that fascinated me many years ago and propelled me into the wonderful profession of dietetics/nutrition!

    My students and I began the topic of carbohydrates yesterday, my favorite subject! Our society has developed a very negative attitude towards what is known as the "Master Nutrient" so I love to get back to the basics of carbohydrates ... Read More

    A while ago, I talked about running and how to get started but I completely neglected those of you who like to walk for exercise! It’s hard to believe that something you’ve been doing since your first birthday is so good for you, but it's true. Walking is the ideal, low impact, moderate intensity exercise. Just like running, it requires minimal equipment - Just your body and a good pair of properly fitted shoes.

    Studies show a regular walking program has many benefits:

    1. Lowers blood ... Read More

  • Manjanique Alexander Talks Gameday, Life with Redskins Linebacker Lorenzo, Staying fit, and More!

    06.06.2012 / Blog Posts Redskins WOW Interview Series

    Lorenzo Alexander has a lot going on besides football. Father and husband, founder and president of the ACES Foundation focused on under-served youth, founder and part-owner of a local Pilates and fitness studio. The list goes on, and we didn't include his spot as one of the Redskins Team Captains last year.

    When WOW asked the linebacker how he manages it all, he replied, "I wouldn't be able to do it...without my wife. She is definitely my rock...without her I'd be lost." 

    As the team's female fan club, WOW had to sit down with ... Read More

    You’ve heard all the dangers of being overweight and how exercise can help, but you just can’t seem to get motivated, because it seems so strenuous! The good news is that even a small amount of exercise can make a big difference. Physical activity contributes to weight loss especially when it’s combined with calories reduction. It’s really that simple….calories in and calories out.

    You Can Get Active!

    While exercise may seem intimidating at first, you don’t need special skills or training to ... Read More

    The fifth and final nutrition principle the Redskins Players apply during the Off Season Strength and Conditioning Program is to "Stay Hydrated"(review the 5 principles here). We'll talk about the importance of hydration for women, the effects of dehyrdation and how to tell if you are hydrated enough.

    As a sports dietitian, hydration is one of my favorite topics because it affects every aspect of a person's health and performance. Better yet, small changes have instant returns! Redskins players are well aware that dehydration significantly affects performance ... Read More
