Improving nutrition fitness and performance fueling incorporates the basics of a healthy diet such as eating eight servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Fruits and vegetables are nutrition powerhouses and eating them regularly has been linked to better overall health. Research showed that people who eat at least five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day were nearly five times more likely to report high emotional wellbeing compared to those who eat less than one serving (Stranges et al., 2014). Transforming our Future Soldiers into professional Soldiers and tactical athletes requires them to understand both the performance benefits of positive nutrition behaviors and the loss of performance caused by poor diet. Performance fueling for success optimizes training and performance in any military setting. More importantly it enhances their long term health and readiness.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
