Few men know what it's like to walk in Michael Jordan's shoes. Buzz Peterson knows because, well, he walks in Jordan's shoes. Not the popular name brand sneakers the former great hocks, but MJ's very own toe huggers. "I have not bought a new pair of dress shoes since 1984," Peterson boasts proudly over the phone from Boone, N.C. Once, before MJ went global, life was different. When both were freshman roommates at North Carolina, it was Mike Jordan who used to raid Peterson's shoe rack.

Forget the vitamins. The best supplement to help athletes' bodies recover from the stress of heavy-duty exercise is good old-fashioned sugar -- found in sports drinks. That's because the drinks, which are 6% to 8% sugar, help restore much of the body's depleted supply of carbohydrates. Sports drinks supply forms of sugar, such as glucose and sucrose, that are quickly absorbed and in optimal concentrations. Fruit drinks contain fructose, which can lead to cramping or stomach upset.

From kitschy gift to kitchen darling, chia is having another 15 minutes of fame. And this time, it's not slathered on clay "pets. " Chia seeds have become popular for their omega-3 fatty acids and fiber content. With their neutral taste, they can be consumed in many ways - now they're even showing up in processed foods such as chips and spreads. Eaten by the Maya and Aztec people, chia seeds have long been reputed to be nutritional powerhouses. "They were basics when we grew up," says Ramiro Arvizu, a chef at La Casita Mexicana in Bell.

A hard workout, which can be good for a mother, can be bad for her baby if the mother breast-feeds soon after exercise, a study finds. Mothers pass along immune protection in their milk, but levels of proteins that carry the protection drop sharply after the workouts, the researchers said. "Nurse before exercise," advised researcher Richard L. Gregory of Indiana University. Gregory and his colleagues looked at immunoglobulin A proteins in breast milk.

And forget the idea you can sweat out the flu through intense exercise: "That's a myth," he says.
