When to buy organic produce?

DietLike.Me with Elaine Sirt-Hastings 
We should celebrate, though. Florida is a fertile source for many produce favorites and when our growing season is over, our neighbors to the north are still harvesting delicious fresh vegetables and fruits for us to enjoy.

Eat Great. Be Great

Savannah Hastings. The Nutrition Kid


We learn that ignorance is bliss, however, when we discover that celery can be coated in 67 pesticides. Yes, sorry, that tuna salad in the fridge is possibly dosing your family with chemicals designed to kill weeds and creepy crawly pests.
However, a new report by nonprofit public health advocates Environmental Working Group is a blessing to all of us who like to keep our produce drawers full and our doctor visits to a minimum. 
The report is the result of poring through thousands and thousands of USDA pesticide reports. This determined which fruits and veggies have the best and worst chemical residue.

Here’s the good news. You can reduce your pesticide exposure by up to 80 percent simply by buying the organic version of the 12 worst offenders. This is an easy change which makes a major difference in your family’s health risks. And you’ll be hard-pressed to say it’s an expensive change, when you factor the cost against the reward.
The U.S. government says ingesting low volumes of pesticide is not harmful. But several scientific studies have shown possible links between pesticides and cancer, nervous system problems, weakened immune systems and attention deficit disorder.
The “Dirty Dozen” produce list is compiled of 12 items that contain 47 to 67 pesticides per serving. Here, in no particular order, are the 12 fruits and veggies you should definitely consider buying in the organic version: apples, celery, domestic blueberries, imported grapes, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, spinach/kale/collard greens, strawberries and sweet bell peppers. The report lumps all the dark leafy greens together, making them easier to remember.
You’ll have to go to a little more effort to find organic versions of the risky 12, but you do have options. Mother Earth Natural Foods, Whole Foods, Fresh Market and The Sandy Butler carry many of these items in their organic section. Sweetbay and Publix also offer pesticide-free produce, so take note what’s available in the store where you usually shop, or explore a new source. 
Punta Gorda’s own Worden Farm has a subscription service for its organic produce; check out its website to see what’s grown there.
I also like to buy cage-free, organic eggs.
The report’s news isn’t all bad. Have a look at the fruits and veggies that are least likely to be covered in pesticides, but don’t get these lists mixed up.
The cleanest produce outside the organic section are logically deduced, to some degree: many have protective outer coverings that are inedible. They include asparagus, avocados, cabbage, cantaloupe, eggplant, grapefruit, kiwi, mango, onions, pineapple, sweet corn, sweet onions, sweet peas, sweet potatoes and watermelon.
You might want to tuck this column into your purse or glove box until its contents are committed to memory. Now what’s for dinner?

How doctors and dietitians help NBA players fight jet lag with nutrition

With an 82-game schedule, NBA teams travel a lot. This season the Trail Blazers will lead the league with nearly 60,000 miles on the road, followed by the Lakers (55,000) and the Heat (53,000). All that flying means frequent time-zone changes, which can make it difficult for players to perform at peak levels. But jet lag is about more than having trouble sleeping. “It also results from feeding the body when it isn’t expecting it, or vice versa,” says Dr. Chris Winter, a sleep specialist who currently works with the Thunder, as well as the NHL’s Rangers and MLB’s Giants, on proper sleep techniques.

by Jamie Lisanti Thus, when you eat is a key part of curing jet lag. An athlete trying to quickly acclimate to a new locale can time meals to trick his body into thinking he’s still at home, Winter says.

What a player eats is also important. Lakers diet doctor Cate Shanahan makes sure players eat the same food they would at home. To accommodate an airline’s culinary limitations, she opts for meals that keep well and reheat easily—like braised meats such as barbecued baby back ribs instead of steak. “The fats and the exclusion of most carbs help to get rid of blood-sugar fluctuations that keep people awake,” says Shanahan.

When players lose sleep, Winter says, the body doesn’t produce the normal amount of natural growth hormone, which aids in recovery. That’s why Dave Ellis, a dietitian who has worked in sports for more than 30 years, recommends beets and leafy greens that are potent nitric-oxide producers, which he says “helps muscles get an oxygen-rich and nutrient-rich bloody supply.”

The concoction contains sleep-inducing melatonin and tryptophan, and slow digesting proteins for a good night’s rest and overnight muscle repair.

“Hydration is also very important because airplanes are very dry, low-pressure environments,” Ellis says. “During the flight we continue to hydrate, but we want to promote as much uninterrupted sleep as possible.” Who wouldn’t drink to that?

FOODS TO HELP BEAT JET LAG

YOGURT
Rich in calcium, yogurt can increase the production of melatonin to aid sleep—and the protein is an added bonus.

BEEF JERKY
The flat sticks travel well and provide a savory source of protein, which can help you get some zzz’s.

TART CHERRY JUICE
A small serving of this deep-red liquid is a natural source of melatonin and high in antioxidants.

HEART-HEALTHY FATS
Regular consumption of nuts and seeds may aid sleep because the polyunsaturated fats they contain can boost serotonin.

Performance Enhancing Drugs – PED, Doping, Banned Substances; Does anyone NOT use?

MLB investigating region in PED war

By Mike Fish and T.J. Quinn | ESPN.com

Major League Baseball is investigating multiple wellness clinics in South Florida, as well as individuals with potential ties to players, armed with the belief that the region stretching 50 miles south from Boca Raton to Miami is “ground zero” for performance-enhancing drugs still filtering into the game.

Outside the Lines” has learned that MLB security officials have spent considerable time in South Florida since last summer, monitoring clinics believed to be linked to the sale of human growth hormone and testosterone to players. MLB officials hope law enforcement will subpoena clinic records to determine whether players received illegal and banned substances.

“Outside the Lines” has learned that MLB security officials have spent considerable time in South Florida since last summer, monitoring clinics believed to be linked to the sale of human growth hormone and testosterone to players. MLB officials hope law enforcement will subpoena clinic records to determine whether players received illegal and banned substances.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is working with MLB, which declined comment Saturday, but it is unclear whether subpoenas have already been issued, and sources close to the investigation said a direct link to players has yet to be found. The investigation is tedious because of the involvement of potentially multiple agencies, plus the fly-by-night nature of questionable clinics, which have been known to shut down and reopen under new names as a means of staying ahead of the law.

One clinic under investigation is operated by Anthony Bosch, a self-described biochemist who most recently ran Biogenesis of America in Coral Gables. He long has had ties to the loosely regulated South Florida wellness industry, which pitches the promise of drugs to turn the scrawny to muscular and bring vitality to the tired and aged. ESPN reported in 2009 that Bosch, whose father, Dr. Pedro Publio Bosch, is a Coral Gables physician, wrote a prescription for a substance that led to the suspension for baseball starManny Ramirez — an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers at the time.

The New York Daily News on Saturday first reported that MLB is investigating Bosch, whom the newspaper said had been an adviser to New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.

Bosch’s clinic has not opened since the beginning of the year. Another nearby clinic operated by a former Bosch associate shut down completely in early December, “Outside the Lines” has learned. Bosch, 48, resurfaced on MLB’s radar about six month ago.

Because of the number of clinics, the MLB investigation is looking into several potential drug suppliers or networks, not a single source. The ongoing investigation could take well into the upcoming baseball season to complete, sources said, and officials remain unclear of the number of players that eventually may be involved.

Bosch is well-known in Latin American baseball circles. He operates from a base in South Florida, where wellness clinics pitch growth hormone treatments and testosterone injections, and legions of pro baseball players live and train every offseason.

His relationships with players date back at least a decade. He has attended parties with players and procured tickets to big league ballparks, especially in Boston and New York. He traveled to Kansas City during last summer’s All-Star Game break. He was seen in a popular Coral Gables nightspot after the 2011 season with Melky Cabrera, who was suspended by baseball last season after a positive drug test.

At least one former medical colleague told “Outside the Lines” that Bosch bragged of having treated Major League Baseball players.

Biogenesis

Mike Fish/ESPNTwo unidentified men leave Biogenesis of America in Coral Gables, Fla., a clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball.

The elder Bosch allegedly prescribed to Ramirez the drug hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin — a fertility drug commonly used by athletes to boost their natural testosterone levels after coming off a steroid cycle.

DEA investigators looked into the matter, but federal officials recently told “Outside the Lines” that the agency never opened a case file.

“There are times we don’t open up a case,” DEA spokesperson Mia Ro said. “It’s just maybe that they never got enough (information). Maybe at that time they were hoping for more and they never got it.”

MLB also is known to have a heightened angst about players’ potential easy access to banned substances from the South Florida clinics, particularly because many of the most recent busts have a local connection — among them, Ramirez, Cabrera, Yasmani Grandal, and Bartolo Colon.

The interest is such that a source told “Outside the Lines” that MLB earlier interviewed a former University of Miami player about the availability of drugs in the area after he was busted with HGH in 2010.

Bosch, outside of briefly living in El Paso, Texas, has been a player in the South Florida feel-good medical community for at least two decades. His name is listed on state corporation records tied to a laundry list of ventures that are now mostly shuttered, including Contemporary Health Solutions, Body Chemistry, VIP Med, Medical Hrt (hormone replacement therapy) and the latest, Biogenesis of America — which promotes itself as specializing in weight loss and hormone replacement therapy.

A would-be patient told “Outside the Lines” that Bosch was introduced to him as an “anti-aging doctor” during a visit to a Key Biscayne clinic within the past year, laughing as he recalled a scene in which Bosch yanked up his shirt to show off his abs in a bid to sell HGH treatments. Anti-aging practitioners regularly prescribe HGH for adults with normally declining levels, but the drug is only approved for use in patients with actual medical deficiencies, such as dwarfism, AIDS wasting syndrome and pituitary tumors.

In a separate incident this fall witnessed by OTL, at Hillstone restaurant in Coral Cables, Bosch sat at a table with a group of friends when he saw a man he knew at the bar, who was 50 and overweight. They chatted. Bosch, wearing a red polo and jeans, told the man he was a doctor and that he could help him lose weight by injecting him with hormones. The man said he might.

Several friends and former associates told “Outside the Lines” they were either told by Bosch or led to believe that he was a medical doctor. On state corporate filings for one venture, Bosch is listed as “Dr. Bosch.”

Under Florida law, only a licensed physician can consult with a patient and recommend treatment, and prescribe medications.

The current records for Biogenesis of America list Bosch as program director and his father as medical director. Bosch’s younger brother, attorney Ashley Bosch, is listed as a managing member.

In Coral Gables, the Biogenesis of America office sits on the first floor of the three-story Gables Waterway Executive Center, a stucco building home to medical and professional offices. The offices back up to a small water canal. Just across four-lane Dixie Highway are the quiet, tree-lined streets of the University of Miami campus. Easily visible is the school’s Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field — the baseball complex the Yankees’ star got his name on after a $3.9 million contribution toward its renovation.

State corporation records indicate Biogenesis was first registered last March. The blinds on the Biogenesis windows and door remain drawn and a square sign on the front door reads: “Open: Come On In” — but since around Jan. 1 the place has been shuttered, the office locked.

A representative of the leasing agency acknowledges the recent inactivity around the office, but doesn’t know that it is closed for good. She notes that “several months” remain on the lease.

According to sources, several Biogenesis employees quit this fall, saying they had not been paid. Only Bosch and a receptionist were working in the office in November and December, and packages for the company have been on hold by the U.S. Postal Service and UPS since late December.

In observing Biogenesis in the weeks leading up to its hibernation, the clinic never showed signs of being a beehive of activity, though it appeared to have a steady flow of clients. Often, those walking through the door were athletic-looking teenagers — accompanied by at least one adult — and young women baring resemblance to fitness models.

The person they came to see was Bosch.

Asked recently in a phone call the identity of the clinic’s medical director, the Biogenesis receptionist responded, “It is Tony Bosch.”

“Pardon me?”

“Tony.”

“So it is Dr. Bosch?”

“Yes, Dr. Bosch. You just make an appointment with me. The first visit is free.”

Last April, after Bosch was stopped by local police and cited for an expired tag and a suspended license, their report listed his occupation as biochemist.

“Tony has always been bragging,” a Bosch associate said. “He said he was a doctor. We found out later that he wasn’t … I don’t.

Fitness Friday… Tips for High School Athletes

Tips for High School Athletes

Top Tips for Teenage Athletes

Today’s adolescent athletes are stronger, fitter and faster than ever. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, if you’re a rugby player or a figure skater – the energy requirements are significant when intense training and competition are part of your daily routine. And for teens, all this occurs at a time when they are in the midst of the biggest growth spurt since their first year of life. The unique combination of high-energy output, rapid growth and a desire for peak performance means, more than ever, that nutrition is key to achieving your athletic goals.

The most important nutritional requirement for teen athletes is to fuel growth and development first, and to support athletic performance second. Inadequate food intake can translate to sub-par performances, muscle breakdown, injuries and even undesirable weight loss. But beware – this doesn’t give license to load up on greasy fast food and refined sweets! Empty calories are more likely to leave you feeling sluggish. Fuelling for growth and performance means consuming enough nutrient-dense carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (ideally four to six times per day) to ensure you have all the energy you need.

Girls who engage in sports that emphasize body weight, such as gymnastics or distance running, may mistakenly believe losing weight will improve their performance. More likely, they will find themselves low in energy and can be at risk of developing an eating disorder or amenorrhea (loss of menstruation), or set themselves up for early osteoporosis.

So how much is enough? Teenage athletes should be consuming significantly more calories than mom or dad. The recommended daily intake for youth 14 to 18 years of age is 2,300 calories for females, and 3,150 calories for males. Those figures will simply maintain growth and body weight. Energy expenditures due to training and activity will boost nutritional requirements an additional 500-1500 calories per day.

Let’s begin by dispelling the protein myth. Yes, an active teenager needs a little more protein than his inactive peers. Protein helps repair muscle damage and, when taken with carbohydrates, speeds up the body’s ability to restore depleted glycogen. An athletic teen’s daily protein intake should be approximately 1.5 gm/kg of body weight (with an upper limit of 2.0 gm/kg) and account for no more than about 15% of calories.

It’s not difficult to reach this level with whole foods rather than through excessive supplementation. A 6 oz. portion of roasted chicken breast alone contains 50 grams of protein. Easy-to-digest protein shakes can also be an ideal way to start your day or replenish after a workout, especially when frozen fruit, almond milk or flaxseeds are included for added nutrients and fiber. Ideal post-workout snacks can include handfuls of homemade trail mix, veggies and hummus or even chocolate milk.

Keep up the carbs

Let’s not forget that our bodies’ preferred fuel source is carbohydrates. More than half of calories (55-65%) consumed should come from carbs. Not the refined and sugary snacks that give you a boost and then cause a crash an hour later, but complex carbs that provide sustained energy and maintain stable blood glucose levels, especially during long days of training or competition. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains should be the primary source of carbs.

Athletes engaged in “power sports” such as hockey or rugby may sometimes underestimate their body’s need for carbs and overestimate their need for protein. Chances are that if they’re having trouble gaining weight or muscle mass, it’s likely they’re not eating enough nutrient-dense food. Carbs are essential for muscle recovery and to restore glycogen stores after prolonged or intense exercise.

The evening before a competition or intense training session, include nutrient-dense and carbohydrate-rich foods such as sweet potatoes, brown rice or whole grain pasta as part of your meal. Fuel up before your morning practice with easy-to-digest foods such as oatmeal and berries or whole-grain toast with almond butter; take along some bananas, oranges or whole-grain pretzels for an energy boost between games and enjoy a whole-grain sandwich with lots of veggies and tuna or turkey when the tournament is over. Those fruits and veggies have the added benefit of providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects after a day of hard training.

Don’t fear fats!

Teen athletes can consume up to 25-30% of their daily calories from fats. These should consist primarily of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, including essential fatty acids such as omega-3s. Let’s distinguish “good” fats from “bad” ones – which include processed, fried and hydrogenated oils that can harm cell membranes and interfere with digestion and absorption of nutrients. French fries and pastries will only slow you down. “Good” fats such as cold-water fish, nuts and olive oil are converted to energy more readily and therefore are an excellent source of energy for muscles.

Omega-3s have the added benefits of reducing inflammation, improving recovery from fatigue and promoting the release of growth hormone. Healthy fat intake will keep your energy topped up and help minimize or speed up the healing of injuries. Aim to include at least one serving of salmon or halibut each week; munch on walnuts, cashews or pumpkin seeds; add avocado slices to your salad and add a generous drizzle of flax or olive oil.

Pumping iron (and calcium)

Calcium and iron are two minerals that deserve special mention. A 2006 study of over 4,700 adolescents concluded that female adolescent athletes are at risk of developing deficiencies in both calcium and iron. Inadequate calcium intake can result in reduced bone mineral density, and may increase the risk of stress fractures or osteoporosis in later years. Meet your calcium needs by eating plenty of leafy greens, yogurt, salmon, dried fruit, nuts and seeds.

Female athletes often tend to be anemic as iron losses can be accelerated through menstruation and heavy sweating. Low iron can cause undue fatigue and reduced athletic performance, so be sure to include red meat, legumes and leafy greens in your diet to keep your iron stores topped up.

Hydration always helps

Young athletes can be particularly vulnerable to dehydration, especially in the heat. Even mild dehydration can affect both physical and mental performance, so try to drink at least 8-12 cups of water throughout the day. And be sure to take in 8-16 ounces of water an hour before exercise, and have a sip every 15-20 minutes throughout your activity, remembering to replenish lost fluids when you’re done. Sports drinks and electrolyte replacements aren’t necessary unless the activity lasts beyond 60-90 minutes.

Optimal performance goes hand in hand with optimal nutrition. Your unique needs as a teen athlete require conscious effort and attention. If you want that competitive edge to reach your peak performance, don’t underestimate the power of food.

This is what I call staying “in the game”! Roald, age 48, sets out for London 2012

Roald, age 48, sets standard for London 2012

By Andrew Franczak

 A 48-year-old javelin thrower from Broxbourne, who has set himself the ambitious goal of qualifying for the London 2012 Olympics, is proving that age may not be a barrier to his dream by setting a new world record.

Roald Bradstock, a former member of Enfield and Haringey Athletic Club, is based in the United States and drove 500 miles from his home in Atlanta to compete in his first event of the season at the National Training Center in Clermont, Florida.

In only his second throw of the competition Bradstock threw 71.83m, breaking the UK Masters record of 71.51m held by Peter Yates in 1999.

It also surpassed his World Age (48) record of 71.07m set last May.

Remarkably, the throw could be enough to get him entry into the 2012 Aviva Trials and UK Championships – which will act as a selection stepping stone for London 2012 later that summer.

“That distance should qualify me now for my eighth trials when I will be 50 years old,” Bradstock told the Mercury. “I believe I’m the first person to do this.”

Breaking News: Liquid Nutrition & Steve Nash announce Team Liquid


BREAKING NEWS: Steve Nash Has A New Team

Two-time NBA all-star taps NFL, NHL, MLB, LPGA and Olympic talent pools to form new team – Team Liquid

Liquid Nutrition TSX Venture Exchange: LQD.V and LQD.WT

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amongst heavy speculation, and some uncertainty, Steve Nash is pleased to announce his new team to the world.

“I see it as more of a support group for Steve, not so much of a team”

Recorded video coverage of the announcement can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xRr6FT6DaA

“I’ve battled with this decision for months, but in the end the decision was quite easy,” said Nash from an undisclosed location. “I would have preferred more athletic, more competitive and more talented athletes to play with, but I guess I will just carry the team on my shoulders as we ascend to greatness.”

In no particular order, Steve Nash’s Team Liquid:

When reached for comment, Nash’s new teammates were still trying to cope with the news.

“I see it as more of a support group for Steve, not so much of a team,” said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. “Nash didn’t even send my agent a copy of the contract. Is that legal?”

Tampa Bay Lightning Captain Vincent Lecavalier expressed disappointment in Nash’s decision to select him.

“Of all the people in the NHL, how did he pick me? Why does he even need a hockey player on his team?” Said a stunned Lecavalier. “I don’t even think he can spell my last name correctly. What a joke!”

LPGA golfer Suzann Pettersen made her feelings quite clear, “I will not be reporting to training camp. Next question.”

Russell Martin of the New York Yankees questioned Steve’s ability to lead the team, “as a fellow Canadian, I like Nash, I’m loyal to Nash, but he’s a little out there, not much between the ears.”

Torah Bright could not be reached for comment but her agent advised it is his policy not to accept calls from Nash on Torah’s behalf.
