Lifestyle Nutrition for Active Seniors


If life itself is a sport, and I believe it is, then regardless of age we’re all athletes playing in the same game of survival. So the important question is “Are you winning?” Is your physical performance up to speed, and can you meet the challenge of the day, or has your ability to perform declined because of inactivity, poor eating habits, stress or just plain wear and tear?

Importance of Nutrition


Competitive bodybuilding is a strange sport. In fact, some don't consider it a sport at all. Unlike baseball, football, basketball, hockey and soccer, competitive success in bodybuilding is based primarily on appearance, not athletic performance. The vast majority of athletes eat to perform and, if they are smart, to stay well, prevent infection and avoid degenerative disease.

Energy



Energy is something that everyone wants more of, but unlike matter and its physical properties, energy eludes a concrete definition in terms of size, shape, or mass. Rather, the term energy implies a dynamic state, a condition of change, because the presence of energy is revealed only when a change takes place.

Cheating on Your Diet


Many nutrition experts actually promote a lifestyle of dietary cheating as a means of release, provided it is controlled, planned and monitored. Others say not to get hung up on the right and wrong of nutrition, that food is just fuel for the fire, and that ultimately, it's just not that important. I couldn't disagree more.
