Strength training without nutrition is like driving a car with low air pressure in the tires. Sure, you might be able to get around town, but you’ll have to go slow, use more gas, and you shouldn’t get on the highway. Nutrition with Vivo strength training allows us to get to our destination efficiently because a well-fed body responds exponentially better to exercise than an undernourished one. Older adults nutritional needs are different and deserve unique care and consideration. Bodies change and your nutrition needs change, too.
Weight is a loaded term when it comes to healthcare. There is an emphasis on the effects of being overweight on our health, but that message can cause a lot of added stress. Vivo is here to help you set achievable health goals with less stress and more emphasis on enjoying food. We can guide you through food choices, portion sizes, and your burning questions about diet fads (spoiler alert: they don’t work).
We are nutrition professionals. We offer the expertise of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who are trained and experienced with the unique nutritional needs of older adults. Vivo’s nutrition team is led by Katie Starr, PhD, RD, and Jamie Rincker, MS, RD, who have a combined 18 years of experience working with and studying the habits and nutrition needs of older adults.
