Dietary supplements are under the purview of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) but are regulated differently than conventional foods and drugs. Manufacturers are not required to prove a supplement is safe before it is sold, or even that it works.

Calculate Your Recommended Protein Intake Contributing Writer December 15, 2017 • 3 min read
“..The amount of protein you need depends on your weight, goals, and lifestyle. The daily minimum recommended by the National Institutes of Health is 0.36 grams per pound for a sedentary person.[1] However, if you do intense workouts or have a physically demanding job, you’ll need more.[2] While the average healthy diet provides enough protein for most people, it may benefit you to bump up your intake if you exercise to build muscle or lose fat, either from dietary protein or supplements…”

How Much Protein You Should Eat to Build Muscle By Michael Matthews
“..“Gym lore” can actually lend some insight here, and it agrees with the above findings.

1 gram of protein per pound of body weight (2.2 g/kg of BW) per day has been a bodybuilding rule of thumb for decades.
Higher levels of protein intake, usually in the range of 1.2 – 1.5 grams per pound of body weight (2.6 – 3.3 g/kg BW) per day, are commonly recommended when “cutting” to lose fat. .”

The Benefits Of Glutamine! Contributing Writer September 15, 2017
“..Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism. Find out everything you need to know about glutamine and how it can help you!

Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles – over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine. Glutamine consists of 19% nitrogen, making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into your muscle cells.

During intense training, Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It could take up to 6 days for Glutamine levels to return to normal – and Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis. Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.

This is why if you’re taking any prescription drug it best to let a qualified physician know what you’re doing. They probably will not object to it, but it’s best to be safe. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not take this supplement. Not enough is known about these amino acids when it comes to interacting with a developing human being.

“..The health benefits of baking soda stem from its ability to regulate pH. When our bodies become too acidic, or too alkaline, health problems can occur. Baking soda helps to restore a healthy balance.

One very important area of life in which baking soda can greatly assist us is exercise. We all know the feeling of being utterly winded when we work out. Anyone who’s ever done high-intensity exercise knows the feeling of stiff joints, sore muscles, and lingering fatigue that this activity can bring.

The process of vigorous exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid in our joints. While this is a natural process, it is one that can lead to that crushing fatigue, and nagging muscle pain that can knock you off of your feet. Exercising can also lead to a lowering of your body’s pH, a process called metabolic acidosis…”

How to Use Caffeine to Improve Your Athletic Performance

‘..Thankfully, if you’re relying on caffeine to help you run faster in a race, you’ll still get a benefit even if it’s your hundredth day in a row of chugging coffee in the morning. But for the best results, you may want to go off caffeine for a week or more before an important race.

When the big day comes, the International Society for Sports Nutrition recommends taking a big hit of caffeine one hour before your event starts. Caffeine begins to circulate in your blood after about 15 minutes if you take it on an empty stomach, or longer (45 minutes or more) if you have it with food. (The delay is similar to what happens when you have alcohol with food.)..”

There are several possible reasons for the large differences between experimental findings and empirical observations.

73-Year-Old on the CrossFit Games Open: “I’m Doing It This Year!”
“Nancy Hoshaw survived a heart attack at 48 and breast cancer at 60. At 73, she’s entering the CrossFit Games Open, which kicked off Feb. 25. While some compete to be named Fittest on Earth, Hoshaw is competing with time and age—and she’s winning. After seeing decrepit women on a trip to Israel, Hoshaw decided a slow slide into a retirement home wasn’t for her. “My goal is to stay healthy and independent. I cherish my independence,” she says. Her coach at CrossFit Bay Area in Webster, Texas, is two-time CrossFit Games athlete Jordan Cook. Cook describes CrossFit as a lifestyle, noting how the community keeps people active and energized while they preserve and improve function. “The whole point of … functional fitness is not just to get better at fitness but to help us in our everyday life,” Cook explains. While Hoshaw was dead set against doing the Open last year, she’s all in for 2016. When Cook shared an Instagram video of Hoshaw preparing for the five-week competition about a month ago, she inspired people around the world and found more motivation herself. “I feel like I can encourage other people, but at the same time I’m encouraged myself,” she says. “It’s amazing the doors that you can open if you just … give it a try.” Video by Elliot and Lindsay Schrock.

How to “naturally boost” your energy?

Insomnia or some medical reasons? Your a parent and the kids keep you up in the middle of the night? Or you just like to stay up late “playing” on the computer or watching some movie/tv. show?

“…Lack of energy can be a normal response to inadequate sleep, overexertion, overworking, stress, lack of exercise, or boredom. When part of a normal response, lack of energy often resolves with rest, adequate sleep, stress management, and good nutrition. Persistent lack of energy that does not resolve with self-care may be due to a variety of diseases, disorders or conditions….

Consider breakfast prime time for packing them in. In the study, people felt that front-loading their whole grains—say, by eating whole-grain cereal and a slice of toast with breakfast (while still including protein, of course)—made it easier to meet their quota…

Sal: I “try” to have my whole grains (e.g. cereal, peanut butter & jelly or egg sandwhich, granola bar, etc..) every morning to “break-fast” for the day. I know many of you like to sleep longer and just get up & go. If you don’t have time to “make” breakfast, I suggest buying those 6-pack breakfast bars in the grocery store as a “back-up” for mornings when you somehow don’t have time to “make” a “sit-down” breakfast meal.

“…There’s a reason darkness and bedtime go hand-in-hand: Bright light awakens your brain…”

It’s 3 pm on a workday. How do you beat the slump? According to a recent University of Michigan study, the most common strategies are checking email, switching tasks, or making a to-do list. ….

Sal: I usually like to check my email after work and then workout, so I won’t spend too much time on the computer-might get lazy! I love to “learn” as a part-time teacher at the weekly community ed classes I teach (started as a volunteer back in 2004), which the different students that come up with “new” questions just motivates and inspires me to re”search” new “material”. This energizes me. I have a “nightly” routine to make a “to do” list before I go to bed (e.g. reflecting on what I did during the day to help remember what I’ve forgotten on some tasks I need to fulfill) , which motivates me to “wake-up” right away after my alarm goes on instead of laying there and put on the “snooze” button! Having a goal for the next day gets you motivated and “energize” to get up on-time to meet your goals.

My Mom’s Story – Healed of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!
“…I asked the Lord for help, and He delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4..
…I was once a woman full of fear, so heavily weighed down by fears that I was near death. But the Lord Jesus looked at me, called me “Daughter,” and set me free–and continues to set me free. I want to give God all the glory for His amazing work in my life, and share my story in the hope that it will encourage you and let you know there is always hope in Jesus.

At the age of eleven I accepted Jesus as my Saviour, but I did not know the power of His life and His words. I grew up longing to know that I was loved, but I did not know that that was what lay buried under my drive to perform in order to receive the attention that would assure me of being accepted. I did Christian things, very sincerely, but the foundation of my life was weak; it was built mainly on what I could do for God (or so I thought) using my own human strength…

Sal: There are times (e.g. doing house projects, working out in the weight room, etc..) that I’m just so tired, so I “call upon the Lord” for strength
