fitfathers Who said staying healthy on the road was difficult? For our week-long stay in LA we ran over to the local grocer and picked up $60 bucks worth of fruits, veggies, nuts, oatmeal, granola, hummus and more. Years past we would have spent hundreds on room service and hotel restaurants. Not any more! #EatClean #FitFathers #NoExcuses 1w

fitfathers Dr. Barnard’s Health Tips for Students @pcrm
Healthy Foods, Healthy Brain
1. Remember the Four Food Groups. Create meals from whole grains, vegetables, beans, and fruit.

2. Pick from the Nutrition Rainbow. Our eyes are naturally drawn to colorful foods. Choose from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple fruits and vegetables.

3. Go Green. Make sure to eat leafy green and orange vegetables each day.

4. Pack Healthy Snacks. Try apple slices, green grapes, baby carrots, and dried fruit.

5. Be Adventurous. Is there a new fruit or vegetable in the lunch line today? Try it. If you normally eat apples and bananas, try mangoes or fresh watermelon.

6. Be Active. Whether it’s joining the tennis team or walking the dog, exercise increases energy and concentration.

7. Rest. Create a set bedtime. Your brain needs time to file memories and recharge, which makes remembering math equations and Shakespeare sonnets much easier.

8. Become a Nutrition Role Model. Ask for healthy snacks, like fresh watermelon, at your next birthday or classroom party. Talk to your parents about what you’re learning in school. Get involved in meal planning and lead the way!

fitfathers www.FitFathers.com -- For its 2014 model year, Giant is introducing a new addition to its award-winning aero road lineup. The Propel Advanced follows the successful 2013 launch of the Propel Advanced SL, the best-in-class aero road bike ridden by Team Belkin riders at the Tour de France and other WorldTour pro road races.

Unveiled at Eurobike 2013 in Friedrichshafen, Germany last week, the new Propel Advanced features many of the same aero-focused technologies as the pro-level Propel Advanced SL, but in an Advanced-grade composite frame option. “The key to the Propel Advanced is that it’s backed by that same comprehensive development process that produced the Propel Advanced SL models that our pro racers love,” said Jon Swanson, Giant Global Road Category Manager. “The goal for both bikes was exactly the same—to produce a bike that’s not only more aerodynamic than anything else in its category, but that’s also lighter, stiffer and more versatile for real-world road riding. And you see that in the way it’s being used by pros. We’ve seen Belkin riders racing Propel in everything from time trials to massive mountain stages at the Tour.

fitfathers Physicians Committee Launches “Orange is the New Pink”
Campaign to Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer Prevention "Time for proaction opposed to reaction!" Kimatni D Rawlins, Founder, Fit Fathers
Women Who Consume a Diet Rich in Carotenoid-Packed Fruits and Vegetables May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk by 19 Percent

The nonprofits Physicians Committee and Fit Fathers launch the Orange is the New Pink campaign today for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The lifesaving social media campaign will help women learn about the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet rich in orange and red fruits and vegetables and leafy greens.
In June, the Physicians Committee released national guidelines for cancer prevention, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition (JACN), which find a diet rich in carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables helps women reduce the risk of breast cancer by 19 percent. Carotenoids are the pigments that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant orange, yellow, and green colors. The Institute of Medicine recommends women consume a daily serving of 3 to 6 milligrams of beta-carotene, a common type of carotenoid, to reduce the risk of disease. “The next time you’re at the grocery store, think orange,” advises Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee and an author of the JACN cancer prevention guidelines. “One sweet potato provides two to three times the recommended amount of beta-carotene you need in an entire day. Other powerful sources include carrots, cantaloupe, winter squash, and dark leafy green vegetables.” The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans find adults consume half the recommended amount of red, orange, and dark green vegetables. The Physicians Committee hopes to narrow this nutrition gap by recruiting parents, teachers, and doctors to help spread the word.
