    1. ACHIEVING A SUPER LIFESTYLE Leslie Bonci, MPH,RD,LDN,CSSDDirector of Sports Nutrition University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

    2. WHAT DOES SUPER MEAN? • Above • Over • On Top • Individual, thing that exceeds customary levels or norms • To an especially high degree

    3. S • Sweet • Satiety • Simple • Sane

    6. E • Easy • Environmentally correct • Enough • Excel

    7. R • Ready-to-Eat • Reasonable • Realizable • Readiness

    8. SUPERLIVING • Needs to be actionable • Needs to be consistent • Needs to be non-disruptive • Needs to be practiced • Needs to be inclusive

    9. ACTIONABLE • So many consumers are stuck in contemplation, and not implementation because: • Changes are too drastic • Goals are too lofty • Strategies are too costly • They simply don’t want to

    10. CONSISTENCY • Eating habits need to be practiced DAILY to become routine • Exercise needs to be planned for and worked into the day • Stress management cannot be an afterthought but a priority that must be part of the daily I MUST DO list

    11. NON-DISRUPTIVE • If it is too complicated, we WON’T • Need to consider what to keep, what we are willing to give up to make room for new behaviors to take hold

    12. PRACTICALITY • Foods should be affordable, versatile, and family friendly • Eating habit changes need to work with a pre-existing schedule • Exercise attempts can be a one-shot or activity bursts throughout the day depending upon the busy-ness of the day • Tacking on 5-10 minutes of chill out time between the end of the work-day and the next obligation can help us to relax, debrief, and feel better

    13. INCLUSIVITY • Food choices should not be labeled as good/bad • Foods must provide all essential macro and micronutrients, not select nutrients • Should reflect taste preferences • Price appropriate • Eating habits should encompass: • Reasons for eating • Time • Location • Quantity • Rate of eating

    14. SUPER SNACKING • California Dried Plums: • Stand alone or as an add-in with cereal, popcorn, nuts • Delicious • Affordable • Texture • Convenient • Portioned • Appropriate for all ages • Versatile

    15. KEYS TO GOOD DIGESTIVE HEALTH • Optimal hydration • Eating a variety of foods/nutrients • Adequate fiber • Quantity consumed • Physical movement • Stress management

    16. HYDRATION • Consumers do not always get the fluid they need: • Confusing guidelines • What counts as a fluid • How to implement • Bladder overload

    17. VARIETY • Including foods one likes • Bad foods vs bad attitudes • Nutrient Rich • The Appeal Factor • The Chew factor • The Fill factor • The Portion factor • Value added: Good for me foods!

    18. FIBER • Needs are not met • Consumers know they need it, but not sure how or HOW MUCH • Perception that high fiber foods are low in taste • Over zealous fiber users • Supplemental sources vs food • Too much fiber without adequate fluid

    19. QUANTITY • Consumers still need to work towards sitting down to the right amount of food • Eating must be purposeful • Right size utensils, plates, bowls, glasses • Encourage consumers to right size when eating out using the words: share, half, or appetizer-size

    20. MOVEMENT • All movement counts • Needs to be something we like to do • Needs to be fun • Can be in small increments or all at once • Should make us feel like we want to do it again, or do more • The gut needs to move as well as other muscles of the body

    21. DE-STRESS • Chill out time needs to be part of the day • Need to download, disconnect, have quiet time • Schedule as the final appointment of the day- ME TIME

    22. BECOMING SUPER • Knowledge is NOT enough • Need to motivate • Need to inspire • Understand that for consumers perception= reality

    23. PUTTING ON THE CAPE • Guilt does NOT motivate • Make haste slowly • Be accountable • Tangible outcome measures • Emphasize nutrition/exercise as the Rx • Ownership=success • Need to know HOW WE CAN not HOW WE SHOULDN’T
