Nutrition for the Active Individual: You Get Out What You Put In

Nutrition is an important aspect of healthy living that even those who consider themselves to be active, can tend to overlook. There is a false belief that logging enough hours of physical activity is the main factor in getting to and maintaining a healthy weight. Worse, some are under the impression that consistent exercise serves as a free pass to over-indulge during meal and snack times. However, weight loss and maintenance is more about what goes into the body than what is burned off, with the ratio being around 20% dependent on exercise vs. 80% dependent on nutrition.

 Additionally, the energy needed to keep up with a high level of physical activity begins with how the body is fueled. In order for performance levels to remain high, energy levels, which stem from proper nutrition, must also remain high. Sustaining proper energy levels will not only positively impact performance, but will also help aid in injury prevention.

This makes the heel less flexible and puts pressure on the growth plate. Over time, repeated stress on the already tight tendons damages the growth plate, causing the swelling, tenderness and pain associated with Sever's Disease.
