i recently did a podcast with Turmeric and Tequila founder Kristen Olson in which we discussed the current state of the media and the fitness industry on the whole. And one of her questions is one I get all the time — how do I choose the women and talent I work with for Oxygen? There is no single answer here, and usually I find our coaches, models and athletes organically — by word of mouth or as a recommendation from another coach/athlete/expert. I very rarely “discover” models or coaches who reach out to me — not because you aren’t fantastic human beings or qualified athletes but because of your social media feed. And no, this is not about your number of followers because I could care less if you have a…

Dietary Disappointment My husband was excited to show me the vegetarian high-protein meal plan in the Fall 2019 issue. (He’s a carnivore and I’m not.) But since 12 of the 14 lunch/dinner suggestions in the meal plan were tofu-based, I am guessing there aren’t any vegetarians on your staff. Eating 14 to 16 ounces of tofu a day is not very appetizing, and there are many other protein sources available to vegetarians besides fermented bean curd. _ LYN, VIA EMAIL Editor’s Note: Lyn, thanks for pointing that out. Since I am personally tofuaverse, I feel your (GI) pain! I will do my best going forward to ensure that our nutritionists create plant-based plans that don’t necessitate a truckload of fermented curd! Weighty Issue Editor’s Note: In the Summer 2019 issue, I responded to a reader’s…

Matthew Kadey MS, RD Writer for “Balls!” Page 78, and “Hungry for Comfort,” Page 96 Though Matthew Kadey has been in the nutrition industry for more than 20 years, he still learns a thing or two with each article he pens. “With ‘Balls!’ I have more proof that homemade energy fuel is way more nutritious and delicious than the packaged stuff,” he says. “I was also reminded that it is pretty easy to up the nutritional ante of some comfort-food classics.” When not writing or creating recipes, Kadey is an avid cyclist. “I ride on both gravel roads and mountain bike trails, and every year, I go on one big selfsupported cycling trip,” he says. Up next: riding the mountains of Columbia. Stephanie Main CF-L2, 500-HOUR RYT, NASMCPT AND FITNESS NUTRITION SPECIALIST Writer for “Smooth Moves,” Page…

Whether you’ve stayed up later than normal or are simply having a hungry day, snacking later in the evening won’t disrupt your fat-loss intentions, so long as your snack is small(ish) and protein-based. New research from Florida State University found that when women who lift weights consumed protein before bed, it did not interfere with overnight belly-fat metabolism or whole-body fat burn. Tired of protein shakes? Try a couple of hard-boiled eggs, _⁄_ cup of Greek yogurt or a few leftover turkey meatballs. 20 The ideal number of minutes to nap, according to the National Sleep Foundation. However, research published in the journal Physiology & Behavior also found that longer naps — up to 45 minutes in duration — were effective at reducing stress and fatigue while improving attention and physical performance.…
