Scooped again: NYT on Vitamin D

September 25th, 2009  |  Published in Stumpblog  |  3 Comments

As usual the New York Times steals my ideas. (Hee!)

This one is particularly interesting for youse guys as site readers because it discusses the role of Vit D in athletic performance.

One of the important things to remember is that athletes typically need more nutrients than the average couch sloth. Thus, an intake that would be entirely adequate to prevent malnutrition in Jane Sixpack (the beer, not the abs) would be INadequate in Jane Sixpack (the abs, not the beer). Indeed, we don’t just want to prevent malnutrition; we want the body running at optimal condition.

So, if you’re active regularly, you may indeed need to supplement your diet even if you are already eating well.

    They’ve nicked some of your ideas here, too:

    “We’ll take a big, old tractor tire and a sledgehammer and hit the tire 25 times” in a typical class, said Mr. Roozen, owner of Performance Edge Training Systems and director of certification for the National Strength and Conditioning Association. “Those tires can weigh 250 pounds, and they have to flip the tire.”

    Well how do you like that?! I’d better keep my advice to eat more broccoli secret — oh sod it, I’ve just said it.

    No, no, this is a good thing. You keep feeding the MSM ideas and eventually everybody will be marching to your drumbeat.

    (Broccoli: roasted. I’ve only used olive oil but something else might work great too. It is so freaking delicious.)
