Optimum Performance: Coming to the Saints' defense with vitamin D

Based on just two weeks into the 2013 NFL season, we may need to look at changing the colors, at least on defense, to black and blue.

The Saints are hurting with injuries to several key players, including nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley, ends Tyrunn Walker, Tom Johnson and Glenn Foster, linebackers Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Victor Butler and Martez Wilson and cornerback Patrick Robinson. Safety Isa Abdul-Quddus has ankle pain and a few players are questionable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, including safety Roman Harper, guard Jahri Evans and running back Mark Ingram.

Re: Optimum Performance: Coming to the Saints' defense with vitamin D

I used to feed NFL teams. Any and all of them. If you had any idea what they eat, you'd have no question that they are lacking in nutritional needs. Especially on game day, which is when I used to feed them.

CARBS are the menu. Some proteins, like BACON. But CARBS are on the menu.

Re: Optimum Performance: Coming to the Saints' defense with vitamin D

Vitamin D has been a hot topic here in Finland - so little sun light per annum - for the last couple of years and there's been a lot of research data being flung both ways. So, it seems that it's pretty difficult to say for certain whether vitamin D deficiencies truly lead to all of the things some experts claim it does, since most of the time you can find another reputable expert who has scientific proof of the contrary.

Nevertheless, I take a large dose of vitamin D daily along with a multi-vitamin & mineral pill, and I top that of with some alpha liopic acid (ALA). And I couple that with a healthy diet rich in proteins and low in saturated and trans fats. And I can't remember the last time I was ill in general or injured due to training.

I was chef at the hotel in K.C. where the visiting teams stayed.
The rudest team in the NFL were the Eagles at that time.

I suppose when you're around the rudest fans it's bound to rub off.

Get any autographs or pictures with players (mouth full and all) maybe that's why there are so many injuries in the NFL. Bad Nutrition
