Pilot Fitness was created to bring you a reliable source of the latest nutrition information and how it relates to working airline and traveling professionals. You need a source that has all of the information you need to keep your health in line, maintain your medical certificate, and happily fly into retirement.
The top 15 diseases and causes of death plaguing western culture have been linked to lifestyle factors – mainly diet.
Why does this matter to you? Unfortunately dying is a medically disqualifying condition! On a serious note, everything from high blood pressure, blocked arteries, diabetes, cancer, stroke, macular degeneration, kidney stones, liver failure, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more will all revoke your freedom to fly and disable your ability to provide a stable living for your family. The aviation industry is already volatile enough and we don’t need to make it more difficult for ourselves.
Think of the effect of not being able to fully fund your retirement, pay off your house, and send the kids to college when you finally get that wide-bodied left seat paycheck because you developed a medically disqualifying condition after reaching your prime?
Is this all a bunch of scare tactics? Am I still at risk even though I exercise regularly and eat healthy? If this is true, then why isn’t this common knowledge?
Unfortunately food companies care about short-term profits over your long-term health consequences. We will provide you with all of the resources you will need to make your own conclusions. While exercise is a good thing, absolutely necessary and not to be overlooked, it is not the cure all. If you are still eating a Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), then even you are still at a high risk for disease later in life. In fact, almost all of these conditions do not just appear overnight, they are the result of years of eating the wrong foods that provide the optimum environment for cancerous tumor growth, heart disease, and diabetes to develop.
We do have great news for you! This doesn’t have to be your story! You can easily change paths and reverse these conditions just by changing the foods you eat! You will have more energy, rely less on caffeine, sleep better on the road and in different time zones, rely less on medication (especially the medically disqualifying kind), and put your body through less stress. Say goodbye to stressful medical certificate renewals and ensure a more secure future. Don’t allow yourself to be “just one medical away from the unemployment line!”
