Others might focus on a fitness achievement: “Just completed my third marathon this year. Never been healthier!” Many people simply consider their weight or overall appearance: [pinches stomach] “I’m still using the same belt hole I used in my twenties, so I must be healthy, right?” What do these have in common?

Precision Nutrition
by Lou Schuler
1w ago
It began in the 1980s with the heart-rate monitor. For the first time, an individual could observe changes in a vital sign as they happened.

Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are the latest step along that path. By attaching a CGM device to your upper arm, you can see how your blood sugar reacts to your meals.

The irony is that it’s kind of stressful to find answers about stress. There’s so much conflicting information out there. But if you’re a health and fitness professional, your clients—maybe even your friends and loved ones too—will likely turn to YOU for counsel.

You want to help, but coming up with the right answers can be hard, because: The right answer depends. It depends on WHO the asker ..read more

Precision Nutrition

You know what you should do for good health. Get enough quality sleep most nights. Cook nutritious, satisfying meals at home, most evenings.
