07-05 How to Make a Food Bag
MAKE A "FOOD FOR SPORT/WORK" BAG
In sports, work and travel it is difficult to now your exact schedule. Layovers, hotels, new places, meetings, unexpected situations, over-booked schedules, running from A to Z, tournament delays, repetitive competitions and different playing brackets all can cause unpredictable situations. Most people, parents and athletes, use this as an excuse to eat poorly and make unhealthy choices. This would not be a concern if this happened once in a while. But look around you! People are eating nachos and chips at competitions, donuts and danishes for morning business meetings, and vending machine snacks and fast food stops for continuous lunch feedings.
First, in order for you to stop this roller coaster, you have to STOP with the excuses! Second, you need to PLAN! Plan your week out. Write a tentative eating schedule. Third, make a Food for Sport/Work Bag! Having food items that can travel in your car, office, or sports/travel bag allows you to make healthier decisions no matter what the day or competition brings. All it takes is an hour at the grocery store/internet every month to stock up. This works for everyone! Health and performance is the reward.

Can We Get All the Nutrients We Need from Food?
Continuation from the June 05 Newsletter
Another question you need to ask and research:
Can the supplement company sell to Canada and Australia?
Canada and Australia treat supplements as medicine. They have very strict guidelines. If the product you are researching cannot be sold in these countries, I would ask why not? Please be very selective on the supplements you purchase. Supplements can be beneficial; however, if they are not being manufactured properly you are lowering the effectiveness the research might support.
|Last year Australia banned over 1800 products because they found out a manufacturer was changing the ingredients. All of those products were taken off the market. My question is where did those products go?
Go to www.sn2g.com if you want to know what products we recommend. More info on selecting a supplement to follow
in the next newsletter.
In the news!
Dawn Weatherwax will be speaking at the US Tennis Teacher's Conference at the US Open in New York, NY on Aug 30th.
We just picked up an Offensive Lineman from The Ohio State University!
My name is Rosemary Brown. My daughter is Sarah M. Brown and she swims
at Xavier University. She and her team were very impressed with your
talk last year and it made a big difference in the swimming for their
team. Sarah was able to perform better than she had in about 5 yrs and
felt a great deal of this was due to dietary changes.
