ANCHOR LEAD: Professional athletes have known the secret to success for years… your diet plays an important part in your daily performance. Brian Osuch has more. (:60) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Whether a professional or everyday athlete, your body needs consistent fuel to function. Cincinnati Reds Team Dietician, Michele Macedonio. CUT: (Macedonio) Pre-workout, you want to have a snack that is easy to digest and a good source of carbohydrate. Post-exercise, we're thinking about replacing what we've lost and also fueling the building of extra muscle. So, we want to make sure we have carbohydrate and protein. SCRIPT: Fat is also important, Macedonio explains, because it provides energy and nutrients for optimal performance. But not all fats are created equally. CUT: (Macedonio) Fat is an important source of energy. It is important to absorb and use vitamins A, D, E and K. It's necessary for the production of hormones. And we want to choose healthy fats. Canola oil is an example of those healthy fats. Canola is the lowest in saturated fat and its neutral flavor and heat tolerance make it useful across many culinary applications. SCRIPT: For healthy recipes made with canola oil, like the Powerhouse Green Smoothie, go to CanolaInfo.org and click on Fuel Up for Fitness. That's Lifestyles from CanolaInfo.
