Here’s a serious post for you two. Have you ever heard of Sarcopenia? The first I ever heard of it was at the RRCA National Convention in March, when Ashley Hofeditz, RD, LDN, a Dietician and Nutritionist, spoke about the topic. It was literally eye-opening: I stared at her wide-eyed, madly scribbling notes on my name tag, which I promptly lost.
To learn more about it, and to see the full article about the photos below, please visit Mr. Tim Huntley’s entire blog and my previous post featuring the article by Ms. Hofeditz in the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
To get your attention, I’m pasting a couple pics Mr. Huntley posted.
