Fuel Your Fitness Routine
By Gina Roberts-Grey
Looking for a burst of energy before heading to the gym or hitting the road for your daily run? Here’s what experts say about three popular breakfast options.
Sports drinks, such as R.W. Knudsen’s Recharge, are hydrating, convenient carbohydrate-loaded meals-in-a-bottle, but they are also often packed with megadoses of sugar. And the fructose from the fruit juices can slow gastric emptying and result in intestinal upset. “Not everyone needs sports drinks to stay adequately hydrated, especially drinks that have so many calories,” says registered dietician, Joan Salge Blake, LDN, clinical assistant professor at Boston University.
An organic apple. Portable and easy to eat quickly, Salge Blake says apples are low in calories and provide the carbohydrates needed during a work out.
One cup of fortified, whole-wheat cereal and nonfat milk. Calcium and vitamin D feeds your bones while the protein and carbohydrates in cereal aid the rebuilding of tissue after exercise. “Whole-wheat cereal lowers blood lactate more effectively than energy drinks,” says Lynne Kammer, who led a University of Texas at Austin study on the effects of eating cereal before exercising.

University of St.Thomas Saint Paul
2260 Summit Avenue
Discover how you can play an active role in shaping the future by what you do within your organization and network with other health care leaders who are dealing with similar issues. The pace of change in health care has increased exponentially since our inaugural health care conference. And by the time the second annual conference convenes, Congress will have passed its bill for health care reform. We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment.
