Introducing the Nutrition Page

In the world of professional health and athletics there exists a group of outliers known only as the “Special Population”; no these are not super heroes, nor are they the brave participants of the Special Olympics. According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) this title is reserved for youths, seniors, pregnant women, and the obese. In short this group encompasses those who need specific consideration where nutrition, strength, and conditioning are concerned because of some “condition” that makes them different from the pack.

 

I submit that firefighters are, in fact, part of this Special Population and as such require nutritional, physical, and emotional strategies tailored to suit their needs. As firefighters, we are subject to the chronic stress of anticipation; sleep interruption, and environmental toxins, all of which are present 24 hours a day during our shifts even if we don’t run any calls. Add to that chronic stress a hand full of critical incidents, where the stress can be so acute it makes lasting changes to your brain chemistry, and you will find a population with some very “special” needs. This page is dedicated to helping you develop a nutritional strategy that meets those needs.
