Wellness In A Nutshell

Wellness and Nutrition-This is lengthy, but necessary and fantastic info that everyone should be aware of!

Fat for life picAmerican’s aren’t very healthy
o 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will have cancer
o 1 in 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer
o 27% have cardiovascular disease
o 24% have hypertension
o 33% suffer from arthritis
o 19% are pre-diabetic, 10% are diabetic
Children are unhealthy too
o Cancer kills more children than any other disease
o 1 in 3 children will develop diabetes
o Over 8 million children have asthma – up 232% in the last 30 years
o By age 3, children have developed fatty deposits in their arteries
o By age 12, 70% have developed beginning stages of hardening of the arteries
Obesity is an epidemic
o 45% of US adults are overweight or obese
o ½ of all children will be obese by 2010
For every 40 pounds overweight….
o Heart attack by 360%
o Cancer by 80%
o Type Ii diabetes by 2060%
o High blood pressure by 260%
o Degenerative arthritis by 400%
o Dying by 110%

Why are we so unhealthy?
o Poor food choices
o Not drinking enough water
o Lack of Exercise
o Stressful Lifestyle
o Sleep Deprivation
o Environmental Factors
o View point of “health care”
Health care vs Sick Care
– Focused on treatment instead of prevention

THE GOOD NEWS – 70% of all of these disease processes is preventable through good nutrition. Dr. William Sears, MD, Pediatrician

HOW FOOD CAN PROTECT OR HARM US

Ph balance – normal pH is 7.4
o Plant based foods – create a more basic environment – help to maintain normal pH
o Animal proteins and starches – create and acidic environment when digested
– Leaching of Calcium from bones to help maintain pH
Dangers of food processing
o Sugar
4 grams = 1 teaspoon
Average child eats up to 5 lbs of sugar per week
Contains no vitamins, minerals, enzymes, or nutritional value
Shown to contribute to increased inflammation in the body
o Low fat/reduced fat foods
Fats replaced with processed sugars, corn syrup, etc.
o Processed and enriched flour
Used in almost every processed food you buy
Nutritional value severely decreased and glycemic index increased
o Preservatives, additives, and other chemicals
Present even in food we consider “healthy”

Oxidative StressOxidtive Stress
Oxidative Stress and Relationship to disease
o Free Radicals are a byproduct of cellular metabolism
o Added to by environmental stress, emotional stress, and exercise stress
o Left unchecked, can lead to tissue breakdown, inflammation, and eventually disease

VITAMINS VS WHOLE FOODS

Average multivitamin
o 31 total nutrients
o Altered molecular make up
o Abnormally high dosage
o Little to no research to prove effectiveness
o Bioavailability – POOR
Whole Food
o Tens of thousands of phytonutrients and micronutrients
o Antioxidants to combat oxidative stress
o Fiber, water, and other healthy compounds
o Synergistic action of nutrients to promote effectiveness
o Multiple studies proving efficacy
o Bioavailability – EXCELLENT
So…… We don’t have a vitamin deficiency – we have a whole food deficiency.

The Answer…. EAT MORE WHOLE FOODS
o Whole Grains
o Nuts
o Beans
o Fruits
o Vegetables

Current recommendations are 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables
o How many did you eat today?
o How many different color families did you have?

Difficulties in getting enough nutrition from fruits and vegetables
o Seasonality
o Cost
o Preparation – time and knowledge
o Dislike – especially children
o Modern growing and harvesting procedures

Every choice we make is either an investment in our health or subsidizing our illness – Your health and the health of your family IS WORTH $1.39 per day

Juice Plus is the easiest, most effective way to ensure that we are including the antioxidants and phytonutrients from 17 different fruits, vegetables, and grains in our diet – EVERY DAY –without exception. Without having to prepare them, clean them, or fight with unwilling children to make it happen. Research has proven the physiological changes that occur in our bodies after supplying it with this increased nutritional density. These changes WILL decrease damage to our tissues and systems which eventually leads to disease.

About Flatlander Tri Coaching

Welcome to my page. My name is Heather Dall and I am a Certified Triathlon Coach located in Omaha, NE. I work out of Prairie Life Fitness (132nd location) and provide triathlon coaching, knowledge, experience, and expertise to those looking to get into triathlons to the seasoned veteran looking to improve performance. Along with being a triathlon coach and athlete, I also manage a local Trek Bicycle Store. There is nothing better than being able to be in a passion industry and share my love of the sport. I am an endurance junkie who got into competitive racing back in 2000. I started off racing mountain bikes, taking the podium numerous times. Then the kids came along and I took some time off to raise the squirts. Back in 2009 my friend suckered me into a mini tri and really the rest is history. I have been doing triathlons ever since, usually about 4-6 triathlons per season-primarily Olympic and X-Terra, plus 10K races, off-road runs, charity bike rides, and the occasional bike race. My background prior to triathlons, is tennis. I grew up playing on the courts in Northern California with the goal to play in college. I did accomplish my goal and was a walk-on at Creighton University. Long story short, while working part-time at Prairie Life Fitness in 2008, I was asked to start a tennis program for youth and adults. I still run the program and coach tennis year round. And with my connections at my gym, I had the opportunity to co-teach a 12 week triathlon training program for about 20 ladies spring 2011. They primarily trained for the Omaha Women’s Tri with a few going on to race later in the season. The group was a huge success and is the main reason I studied to become a triathlon coach. I love helping people to achieve their goals, make new strides, and spread my wealth of knowledge on to other like-minded individuals. Along with coaching, I am a distributor for Juice+ For those looking to add more fruits and veggies to their diet and make smarter nutrition choices, check out my site: http://heatherdall.juiceplus.com/
