Sports Nutrition For Men

This E – Newsletter comes to you on or around the 5th of each month because you either requested it, gave me permission to send it to you, or I thought you might find it of interest. If for any reason you’d like to no longer receive this communication – please reply accordingly.

I have great regard for your time – thank you for allowing me to be a resource for you.

Health-E NEWS June 2009


A friendly reminder: nutrition consultations are by phone appointment

If my voice mail alerts you to my goofy summer schedule it’s best to leave a message. That way you will get a return call from me.

Topic of the Month – Men’s Health

I have fewer male clients than female clients. Why is that? Many say purchasing power in general is ruled by woman. I know because lots of my male clients tell me that their wife or girlfriends makes those decisions.

That’s OK by me – just introduce me to your wife or girlfriend!

The guys I work with are discerning consumers. 

My company and our products have earned their trust …They are fiercely loyal and I appreciate that. 

My male clients tell me that I educate and offer quality factual information so that they can make their own best choices – I think that’s pretty cool.

In June I will addresss as many  male health challenges as I can. .

This hot off the press:

Why would an endurance runner extraordinaire who has been saluted by Outside magazine as “America’s Greatest Runner”. Hailed as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” by TIME magazine and whom Men’s Fitness says may be the “fittest man on the planet” partner with a nutrition company ?

Because Dean Karnazes, ultramarathoner relies on quality sports nutrition products to fuel his race winning performances.

“My philosophies are aligned with this companies philosophies. Not only do I believe in quality, but in authenticity of products. I think this company, more than any other nutrition company I have worked with, thoroughly researches their products,” said ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes, “I believe in them. That’s why it’s a great honor for me to be affiliated now with the # 1 Nutrition company in the United States, and I look forward to years of development and growth ahead.”

“For more than 50 years, backed by the best that science and nature have to offer, our company has set the standard for natural nutrition, powering today’s elite athletes,” said Roger Barnett, CEO and Chairman, , “We are so proud that an accomplished top athlete like Dean is using clinically-proven nutrition products as part of his regimen.”

Stay Hydrated: According to a study published in 2006 in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, 46% of exercisers are likely to go to the gym dehydrated. Dehydration reduces aerobic endurance and can result in increased body temperature, increased heart rate, disorientation, and
even physical collapse! Karnazes stays healthy and hydrated by drinking a quality hydration product.

Eat a Light Meal Before Your Workout: Eating a large meal prior to a workout may leave you feeling sluggish or with cramps because your muscles and digestive system are competing for energy sources. To the contrary, not eating can result in hunger or low blood sugar levels leaving you feeling weak or faint. For optimal performance, Karnazes eats a quality snack bar  or meal-in-a-bar one to two hours prior to his workouts – both are powered by Leucine® to help preserve muscle mass.

Replace Protein After a Workout: To stick to your training regimen, help enhance recovery from exercise by drinking a quality muscle repair product after your workout. This gives you the nutrients you need to rapidly recover and repair muscle tissue after exercise. Whey Shakes are also a perfect post-workout option. Whey protein is one of the richest known sources of naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids, including leucine which plays a critical role in muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth.

Keep your Joints Healthy: Getting that last mile in, struggling for that last weight-lifting rep, or playing that extra game of tennis can all be tough on joints. Joint health can be affected by many factors, including exercise and simple day-to-day activities. A quality glucosamine joint repair product is a key building block for larger molecules such as proteoglycans, which give cartilage elasticity, strength and resiliency.

Daily Nutrition is Key: Athletes need to make sure that their bodies are in top form and that means getting important vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients every single day. Karnazes is always traveling, so our ultimate daily nutrient strip play a vital role in ensuring that he gets the nutrients he needs because when he’s on the road, it’s hard to eat as well as he’d like to. This scientifically advanced product contains more than 20 antioxidant compounds in its formulation and pure, powerful omega-3 fatty acids, but it also offers a comprehensive approach to nutrition and health that can translate into better nutrition and improved vitality.

Karnazes is author of the best-selling autobiography Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner
