Do You Have to Eat Protein Immediately After a Workout?
to learn why the advice to “optimize in 45” may still hold true.
Are You Protein Poor?
Since 2010 the USDA has recommended that adults over 18 eat 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight daily, which works out to roughly 55 grams of protein for a 150-pound person. But that amount may be too low for most active people, according to a 2015 study by a team of researchers in Canada and Texas, published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism. Click here

They are known as “superfoods” for a reason
The more greens you eat, the less likely you are to develop chronic diseases such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. The problem? Most Americans don’t eat nearly enough dark-green vegetables. On average, according to the Harvard School of Public Health, we get just three daily servings of any kind of produce. And USDA reports suggest that dark, leafy greens don’t come close to ranking among the most commonly eaten veggies. That means a lot of us are missing out on greens’ nutritional benefits, which include boosting immunity, enhancing detoxification, reducing inflammation, improving digestion, and helping maintain a proper acid-base balance in the body. One solution? Taking them in supplement form. “Consuming greens supplements, such as powders and juices, can be a convenient and reliable way to get your necessary daily intake of green vegetables — and then some,” says Michael B. Wald, MD, PhD, ND, director of nutritional services at Integrated Medicine of Mount Kisco in New York. Click here

Spring Greens: Quick and Easy Tips, Recipes, and Nutrition Know-How
It’s easy to get in a rut buying bags of “spring mix” greens, which mostly include mild, traditional lettuces and spinach. Next time you’re shopping, consider selecting some of the lesser-known spring greens like watercress, dandelion greens, mustard greens, and arugula; they are bursting with peppery flavor and are very versatile when cooking. They can zest up your salads, add deep flavor and nutrients to sautés, and they’re amazing sprinkled on top of cooked dishes. Eating them is like a spring cleaning for your body — they’re deeply nourishing, their fiber helps your body shed waste, and their nutrients both detoxify and give your immune system a healthy boost.

Q: Can a multivitamin improve my fitness results and sports performance?
A: In a roundabout way, yes. Improve your overall health and your performance will follow suit. “Taking a daily multivitamin isn’t going to increase your sports performance right away, but it will help over the long term,” says Mike Roussell, PhD, author of The Six Pillars of Nutrition: A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life (Dream Big Publishing, 2011). “Multivitamins can help fill any essential nutrient gaps in your diet and correct deficiencies that could compound over time and work against your fitness results,” he explains. If you’re an athlete, Roussell suggests considering an additional mineral supplement that provides extra zinc and magnesium. These minerals are readily depleted during intense activity, and magnesium depletion in healthy people has been shown to decrease cardiovascular function during exercise. But don’t megadose on any supplement unless you’re following the advice of your health professional. And, keep in mind that the natural form is always better than synthetic, so whenever possible, eat real food instead of relying on a laboratory-based chemical process.
