Dr. Susan Kleiner on “Power Eating” for Optimal Athletic Performance

For everyday gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts, nutrition is pretty simple.

This changes for high-level athletes, though. 

When performance is your livelihood, nutritional optimization becomes paramount because dietary mistakes have bigger consequences.

maskmaskmaskmask

A short but persuasive editorial in British Medical Journal is urging governments and policy makers to endorse the low-carb diet as a way to reduce the risk of serious complications from coronavirus infection.

Written by Australian science writer MaryAnne Demasi, PhD, who is deputy director of the Institute for Scientific Freedom, the editorial notes that statistics to date show patients with metabolic syndrome have worse outcomes:

the two most common underlying health conditions associated with COVID-19 infections are cardiovascular disease (32%) and diabetes (30%);
hospitalizations are six times higher among patients with a reported underlying condition (45.4%) than those without reported underlying conditions (7.6%);
deaths are 12 times higher among patients with reported underlying conditions (19.5%) compared to those without reported underlying conditions (1.6%);
two-thirds of people in the UK who have fallen seriously ill with COVID-19 have been overweight or obese and 99% of deaths in Italy have been in patients with pre-existing conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. read more
