On this call, kinesiologist Dr. Katie Carpenter breaks down many of the misconceptions that deter women from the use of sports products, including confusion about bloating and gaining too much muscle.
The actual size of your muscle comes down to a simple equation called “protein turnover,” which is the sum of muscle breakdown and synthesis. When you deprive your body of dietary protein and stop providing a weight-bearing stimulus, you have a negative protein balance, leading to the breakdown of muscle (1).
Gone are the days of athletes loading up with artificially sweetened performance-enhancing powders to get bigger, faster, and stronger. Athletes are now looking beyond just better performance from their sports nutrition products—they’re looking for natural, nutritious ingredients that are safe and good for their health.
If you’re caught unprepared, the heat outside can turn a simple jog into a test of will. When you’ve got the sun beating down on you, it’s going to slow you down. But athletes can take steps to acclimatize and bring performance back up to normal.
If you’re a mom, you most likely do things for other people all day long, which is why it’s so important to find healthy ways to recharge your own batteries. Exercise is a great way to do this. Not only does it get your heart pumping, but it may also put you in a better mood. Studies show that a few hours of exercise a week have the potential to ease postpartum depression and mood swings.
Training and skill are important in whatever sport your children play, but eating right on game day is their secret weapon for keeping their favorite sports safe and fun. That's why they need a nutritional game plan. Parents know that eating well increases energy, endurance, and the ability to concentrate, both on and off the field. Make sure your kids are getting the proper nutrition they need before, during, and after their practice or game.
