Abstract : This guide has been prepared to assist you in your efforts to gain or maintain a high level of physical fitness by combining sound nutritional and physical fitness practices. An overview of basic nutrition and physical fitness programs including aerobic conditioning and strength training are provided. Information for designing exercise programs for individuals at various levels of physical fitness is provided in this guide. Because deployment is part of a Navy career, the importance of nutrition and exercise in maintaining physical readiness when deployed is discussed in Chapters 10 and 12. Also, many people take nutritional supplements to enhance physical performance. The benefits and risks associated with using performance enhancing supplements is discussed in Chapter 14. In another chapter (Chapter 15) women's issues such as nutrition and exercise during pregnancy and lactation are discussed. Moreover, resources used to prepare this including websites for various Naval Commands and Civilian organizations involved in health promotions, are provided in Appendix D.
