Plant based Eating for Athletes and Rest of Us August 1, 2018

I have been reading, Matt Frazier’s – NO MEAT ATHLETE blog posts for a few years and have learned something every time….sometimes I re-learned information I needed that  day.     But it all helps.

HEALTHY veggies     Now don’t let the word “athlete” scare you away- it has useful information for everyone- students, parents, employees and of course athletes. We are all ‘athletes’ since we use our minds and bodies every day. Those of us that are active athletes may have a need for a slightly varied diet and collection of foods but every one needs vitamins and minerals and all the other goodies that we get in food.

Basically food is our fuel, in the same way that gasoline fuels the cars. We need the right fuel in the proper amounts to be good, do well and feel great.

What do you eat? 

 

The No Meat Athlete website…lots of great stuff here…Take a peek…

We Heart a Healthy Heart (sorry for lazy title) December 10, 2017

I recently found out I am in Heart failure {recently = March 2017}. I am in A Fib (Atrial fibrillation ) and the focus on weight loss and exercise is the best thing I can do. I have created some improvement by following doc’s orders taking the medicine and exercising regularly with a good plan.  I have written and will do more on the food and diet component, since I have lost significant weight.

I have watched lots of videos and read books and articles on all of this. I will write more about this and am contemplating the creation of a “gym” specifically for heart patients.

This is a simple exercise plan and idea. Ultimately the best exercise for you is something YOU WILL DO.  And do so consistently.

Exercise and heart health according to a medical expert. Exercise serves many purposes and can be helpful for diagnosing and identifying heart problems. it will also help measure changes and improvements.
