Episode Description

Fitness should be a three pronged attack including cardiovascular fitness, strength training and solid nutritional habits. Practice all 3 along with some stretching and flexibility thrown in and you are well on your way to optimal health. But nutrition is probably the toughest for most of us to consistently pull off yet the most important for body transformation, weight management and performing well at running or your favorite sport.

On "Fitness Momentum" show #4, Michael is joined by special guest and accomplished dietitian, Catherine Kruppa, as they share and discuss solid nutrition tips heading into the new year for weight loss, improved energy and optimal performance.

Since this show airs just 9 days before the running of the 2015 Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Half Marathon, they will also discuss carbo loading tactics for marathoners and half marathoners leading up until race day.
