Ever wonder how Olympians get the edge for performance? Sure, genetics play a role in their success as elite athletes, but the rest falls into the Performance Triad:
Quality Sleep, Activity (i.e., LOTS of training!) and of course, Top-notch Nutrition! Whether you’re an Olympian, a War Fighter, or someone with a passion for life and health, smart nutrition choices can help you take your fitness to the next level.
This month, the Department of Nutritional Medicine challenges you to Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right® and to see the benefits in your everyday health and physical performance. Choose more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat dairy for the best results. Need ideas? Make an appointment with one of our nutrition experts at (210) 808-2232 or 808-3609!
