Part 2 of Jeff Galloway’s episode goes in depth and covers the following topics:
A runner and blogger who runs “Galloway Style”, Cambrey Fuller comes on the show as our Runner of the Week. Cambry shares how she was told she would need to use a cane if walking more than 200 hundred feet after having six surgeries on her ankle. Somehow, she has managed to go on to run 17 half marathons in 15 months including the Tinker Bell and Princess half marathons. By running, and surprising her doctor, not only is Cambry defying the odds, but she is thriving – especially after losing 180 pounds! This inspiring mom has thrown away her scale and focuses on how she feels and how her clothes fit. Cambry’s goal is to run the Auckland Marathon in 2016.
Serena Marie, RD, shares why she was so excited to read the article titled "Green vegetables, red meat and colon cancer: chlorophyll prevents the cytotoxic and hyper proliferative effects of haem in rat colon.", which was released by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM), a branch of the National Institute of Health. As you may know, Serena Marie, RD, loves red meat, as it’s such a great source of iron. As runners, it’s common for us to have low iron counts. According to the article, as long as you have greens with your red meat, the risk for cancer may go down.
Serena shared the new vegetable she is OBSESSED with: lambs quarter. Just sauté with onions and voilà. I shared a test called InsideTracker that I was given to evaluate and have seen great results thanks to the in depth analysis InsideTracker revealed. I was given specific foods to eat to increase my low levels of iron, vitamin D, and testosterone. The test was taken back in February and showed normal levels of cortisol, which can be high for endurance athletes. It will be interesting to see test results as I train for the Chicago and NYC marathons.
