Sports Specific Training for Your Kids
The demands on young athletes are greater today than ever. Talent alone is not enough anymore. Coaches today want athletes that are stronger, faster, more agility and greater skills. In other words, Coaches today want athletes that are better trained. Workouts at the school are simply not enough to be competitive in today’s athletic climate. In response to this increasingly competitive climate, former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Jeff Blake has joined with FitPlay to create the CenTex Sports Academy. The mission of the CenTex academy is to help athletes reach their potential. Academy participants have the opportunity to work with present and former collegiate and professional athletes to help them reach their goals. As football players have already begun preparing for next season, many of the current staff is dedicated to football, however coaches are available for other sports, including basketball, track and field, baseball and competitive cheerleading.

BLOOD TYPE DIETING: My Review
How do you know which diet is right for you? Lots of diets have results, but most of them don’t give you any nutritional information as to why and many of them aren’t long lasting results. There are diets out there to lose weight, cleanse your colon, detoxify and even to clear your mind. There are a few theories out there that Brian and I truly believe because we practice them ourselves. I’m going to inform you about some of my own opinions, but I highly encourage you do some research yourself.
Blood Type Dieting – Peter D’Adamo released his first book in ’97. Largely skeptical at the time it has now become a highly adopted and researched way to eat and live based off your genetic makeup. The studies and research is based largely on the reaction of certain foods with ABO blood types. Agglutination is a reaction that happens in your blood when it reacts with certain chemicals. How we check somebody’s blood type is by testing for these positive reactions. Well the food we eat can cause these same reactions in our bodies; the avoidance of these foods can highly affect the way you feel on a daily basis. We as Americans grew up in a society where we are taught we can eat anything we want to, unless of course we have learned about the foods we are highly allergic to thru experience. Through our personal experience and that of 100′s of people we have worked with over the last few years we truly do believe in this style of eating.
First let me start off with a few disclaimers. Blood Type Dieting was not designed for weight loss; it’s designed for better food reactions in our bodies. While eating this way you may feel better, be more active and lose weight but it’s truly there to help your body become a better performing organism. Real weight loss comes from proper eating habits, portion control, and lots of outside factors like exercise, sunlight and sleeping. Also I believe any diet that excludes processed foods and eating all natural will be a vast improvement from what most Americans currently do.
Every day since I was a little kid I had a big glass of Milk, sometimes a few glasses a day. I also had other Dairy products, like cheese and yogurt. As a child I had allergies, I had ear aches all the time, colds, flus, viruses but still I was considered to be in generally good health. As an adult I still got sick occasionally and allergies got worse over the years especially living in Texas. When I got into fitness I did what everyone else is told to do – Eat more Protein. 95% of Protein shakes are made from Whey or Casein, both of which are Dairy bi-products in a concentrated form. Whey & Casein are high in protein and very cheap due to the large quantities of milk production going on in the USA. So when I was introduced to Blood Type Dieting Milk was a huge part of my life. I thought it would be hard to give up, it’s just a satisfying drink and who doesn’t love cheese? Two years ago I swore to Fred Ardeneaux that i would go two weeks with only eating and drinking things on my blood type and so I did. I didn’t notice much at first, energy levels were consistent and I always felt what I considered to be good. I did notice some small things at first. When I changed out my protein to an Egg Protein source I immediately noticed something, my stomach didn’t get upset. In fact I had just associated that protein shakes all just made you feel a certain way, because up until now I didn’t realize it was the Whey that made me feel that way. My body had built up a tolerance to Dairy products, so they only bothered me a little bit but I could feel the difference. Now that I rarely do Dairy, I can immediately feel it when I do. I would even dare do a full shake of Whey or drink a glass of milk, but i still like a little cheese here and there. I personally am an A Blood type, so there are a few cheeses I can have like Mozzarella or Feta. Brian is blood type O; he realized he shouldn’t do Dairy and even more importantly for him he should avoid Gluten. He never knew it before but now every time he has Gluten he can feel those negative effects it has on his stomach and how he feels.
How often are you eating things that maybe you’ve built a tolerance to but don’t realize they are bad for you? You might be surprised. Now I rarely suffer from any allergies, I haven’t been sick in years, and I know blood type dieting has helped me and most people that try it and stick to it. Try it for two weeks and then go eat a whole bunch of things on your avoid list and tell me how you feel.
