      By Oscar Isacsson, M.S., CSCS | August 3, 2017

      Senior Nutrition and Wellness: If you’re planning on going to the gym try taking two large cups of coffee beforehand. In a study on lifters, the groups were split up into taking, coffee, decaf coffee, caffeine pills, and placebos. The group that performed the best in the before and after testing was the group that drank two cups of coffee before starting their workout. The coffee group outperformed the decaf and placebo group which was expected, however, they also outperformed the caffeine pill group. This shows that there’s more to coffee than just the caffeine.

      By Jessica Lener, MSN, RN | July 21, 2017

      Health Foods That are Not That Healthy

      By Oscar Isacsson, M.S., CSCS | July 20, 2017

A lot of marketers realize that there is a big need for healthy foods, however, sometimes the claims are slightly over exaggerated. Some items named as healthy can be far from it. Foods that are truly healthy for you will not have a healthy label. For example, broccoli is not going to have a “low fat”, “high in fiber”, “Great source of vitamins”, “gluten free”, label on it because it’s broccoli and everybody knows it’s awesome for you.
