Secrets of the nutritional game

Ladies, this is NOT about weight training …

And I didn’t spend enough time on the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour to identify this as a “Secret of the Game.”

What I do know, is that while sitting in a Sports Science Symposium in San Diego, California with over 250 chiropractors fromaround the country, women’s issues were a big topic of discussion.

Fatigue?

  • Shortness of breath?
  • Decreased cold tolerance?
  • Itchy skin?
  • Hair loss?
  • Decreased endurance?
  • Sudden, jolting limbs while sleeping? 
  • Increase in coffee consumption?
  • Work outs aren’t as good?

You could have an IRON deficiency!

It’s rather typical of woman to experience this because it’s a vital nutrient lost through blood loss during menstruation.

Long distance runners are very prone to iron loss.

Important note: Your blood panels may show up as “normal,” but heed fair warning!!!

“Normal” may not be “normal” for you!

SOLUTION: Eat:

Red Meat        Soy

Liver                Spinach

Eggs                Dried Fruit

Tuna                Oatmeal

Salmon            Whole Wheat Bread

Oysters            Tofu

Wheat              Tempeh

Oats                 Soymilk

Lentils             Beans

Interesting side note: Iron absorption can be enhanced by taking vitamin C.

It can’t hurt to try an iron supplement for one week, especially since it’s possible to feel a big difference within three to six days. Sometimes it’s as easy as going to your local drug store and picking up a bottle of Floradix.

Have you ever felt the above symptoms and had to pump iron?
