Food News, Reviews and Blog. All in one place.

Blog

Welcome to Eat for Sport’s blog where we discuss issues relating to food, health or nutrition. Some of the issues are difficult ones that we’d prefer not to think about – especially since many of us believe thinking about them will “ruin” our enjoyment of food and life. Untrue, and it’s something I work with people on all the time. But that process does not involve hiding behind “what everyone else says or does.” You need not agree, and you are always welcome to share your thoughtful views.

The absolute best advice on stress you’ve read

How many articles on stress relief have you read? It’s OK to admit, since even if you’ve not tried to read any it’s impossible to pick up a printed news source of any kind without hearing the latest “best” way to deal with it and/or prevent it in the first place and...

Bushwhacking and Pole Dancing

Two things happened in the last week that reminded me about a lesson we all like to lecture on but generally suck at executing. Before I get to that, here are the two things. First, a new client of mine managed to make it through a very difficult bushwhack last...

Lots of people don’t like me

An interesting and sort of funny thing happened last week. Someone reached out to me via Facebook in response to a recent blog post responding to a lecture by a registered dietitian. She reached out to me without solicitation, requested to join my Healthy Adult...

I love you, Oprah, but …

It’s not that I ever watched her show(s), but of course she is much more than a talk show host. Over the years, I’ve seen many highlights from her thousands of interviews, read and watched her commentary on any number of topics and people. She’s Oprah. A single name...

Lecture by a registered dietitian

I was going to write about Oprah this week. Following a sports nutrition lecture earlier this week by a highly regarded registered dietitian who works for hundreds of college athletes, Oprah will need to wait. On the one hand, there is the conventional dogma espoused...

Lighten up. Have a drink.

A friend of a friend, at 45 years, has never once in her life had a drink. A friend’s mom defends her can of Coke a day by claiming “at least she doesn’t drink.” Another friend decided when we were teenagers she would avoid alcohol for fear of following in her...

Another year comes to pass

We are halfway through December. And I’m going to guess you’ve already given some thought to what you want 2016 to look like, all the things you plan to accomplish, and all the ways in which THIS YEAR is going to be different. That is to say, how you are going to do...

Nudist Gyms … for Consideration

I have a friend who wishes he could work out naked. He wants everyone else to be naked, too. Is he a freak? Not at all. He’s simply fascinated with muscles and, in particular, muscles in action. He has a great appreciation of all forms of the human body, but...

Lessons from the Trail

I went on an amazingly breathtaking and challenging bushwhacking trip this past weekend. The group was slightly larger than normal - 31 hikers from 4 states - and led by arguably the midwest’s (really the country's) best outdoorsman who manages to dissect rugged and...

Pink Ribbons Be Gone

Thank heavens we are less than a week away from the end of October and the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (I meant that.) The runs and walks donning pink ribbons, t-shirts, faces, treats and decorations will finally slow to a crawl, as will the millions and...
