      By Erica Tomasello | Aug 11, 2017

      By Oscar Isacsson, M.S., CSCS | Aug 3, 2017

      Senior Nutrition and Wellness: If you’re planning on going to the gym try taking two large cups of coffee beforehand. In a study on lifters, the groups were split up into taking, coffee, decaf coffee, caffeine pills, and placebos. The group that performed the best in the before and after testing was the group that drank two cups of coffee before starting their workout. The coffee group outperformed the decaf and placebo group which was expected, however, they also outperformed the caffeine pill group. This shows that there’s more to coffee than just the caffeine.

      By Jessica Lener, MSN, RN | Jul 21, 2017

Sometimes you need to pay a little extra attention to really figure out whether something is good for you or not so good for you.

Foods that are truly healthy for you will not have a healthy label.
