Are some of your patients over 50 and want real answers to the best diet, protein, supplements, statins or menopause? There’s so much hype and so many products that promise to STOP the aging process which …really…we know you can’t do. Let’s get some answers to questions on your patients’ minds and likely on yours too.
Joining me on the podcast is registered dietitian nutritionist Dr. Christine Rosenbloom, professor emerita of nutrition at Georgia State University. A Board-Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) she’s a contributing editor for Nutrition Today, and a monthly contributor to USA Swimming, both for the website and Splash Magazine. Find out more about Dr. Rosenbloom on her website and follow her on Twitter.
Dr. Rosenbloom’s new book… Food & Fitness After 50… was recently released. What I like about it is that it gives patients the tools to take control of their food choices and fitness strategies as they navigate their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond. Life is so busy and active and everyone wants to maintain good health or maybe improve it and be able to do whatever he or she wants and enjoys. This book answers a lot of questions they can really use. I focus on some of these most asked questions in the podcast.
