Bellevue Fitness & Health Tips from the Professionals

Health & Fitness Pros Weigh in on Nutrition & Research*

Christopher Gardner, Ph.D., Nutrition Researcher:  “Plants have a full profile of amino acids ~ we eat so much protein every day that it doesn’t matter if they’re in the appropriate proportions.  This reinforced my own decision to go vegetarian.  I don’t lose muscle, and I’m not wasting away.” 

Lee Jordan, Trainer & Health Coach:  Jordan lost 270 # and specializes in helping people who need to lose at least 100#. “The minute my clients make this about one thing, like sugar or saturated fat, they begin to lose steam.  Not all knowledge is power.  Power is the application of that knowledge.”

Trina Gray, Entrepreneur; Award winning club owner:  A Len Kravitz presentation convinced her that water is the most crucial nutrient.  “Len changed my views on water in one single lecture.  I believed it, and I acted on it.  My energy improved dramatically, and I’ve been a believer ever since.”

James Loomis, MD, MBS, Internist:  Loomis thinks doctors should prescribe better diets and fewer pills. “The idea of using food as medicine somehow totally resonated with me. The results were a miracle.  I lost 30#, my cholesterol dropped over 100#, and my sleep apnea disappeared.”

Todd Durkin, MA, Performance Coach & Author:   Durkin believes eating well is eating clean. “I’ve cut out 90% of the white carbs, white sugar, and alcohol from my diet.  I don’t follow fads, but instead, change things based on personal experience and how I feel.  I’m now healthy and feeling better than I ever have before.”

David Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP, FACLM, Preventive Medicine Researcher: Katz worries about the environmental effects of people eating so much meat.  “Healthy people make a healthy planet.  If we care enough about the confluence of both our planet and our health, then everyone needs to eat an overwhelmingly plant-based diet.”

Marion Nestle, Ph.D., MPH, Author & Nutritionist: Nestle says the best dietary advice stands the test of time. “Once I learned about nutrition in the early 1970’s I developed dietary habits that worked for me, and nothing that has happened since has given me any reason to change them.”

Chalene Johnson, Author, Speaker, SmartLife Founder:  Johnson stresses listening to your body and changing things up based on goals, dieting history, stress, gender, and age.  “What works for one may not work for another.  The most holistic, realistic, stable advice comes out of universities, not from US Weekly.”  

Frank Hu, MD, PhD, Obesity Prevention Expert:  Hu says there will always be inconsistencies in nutritional knowledge.  “Nutritional sciences do not move in straight lines.  There are a lot of inconsistent findings.  But that is why we need more research, and more rigorous and solid research, in nutrition and health.”
