What is a "Need?" Fri, Sept 10th (100 DOB Day 72)

Cheryl B works hard to drive the her knees outwards to stay in line with her toes while keeping weight stable in the heels.  This prevents potential injury to the MCL and ACL.  The “triage” for fixing the Overhead Squat usually starts all the way at the top (shoulder flexibility/positioning/grip width) or the bottom (the squat stance).  Poor shoulder flexibility/positioning or incorrect grip can bring the bar forward, forcing a shift in weight towards the toes, sending the athlete off balance, decreasing max load and increasing injury risk.

=============================

So I recently saw a Nutri-Grain Bar commercial, and this is what I heard, “blah blah blah…and loaded with the whole grains your body needs.”  So let’s assess the word “need.”  I know for a fact, that if I don’t drink water (or a liquid based in water) that I will eventually die.  Therefore, I can reasonably say that I “need” water (or a derivative drink based in it).  I know that If I don’t breathe, I will eventually die.  I “need” air.  I know that if I try to shop for clothes, I’ll end up looking like I’m back in middle school with a flannel shirt, braided belt looped back down and Eastland shoes.  I “need” help shopping.  Ok, so maybe that last one wasn’t the best example (although Nicole will tell you it’s the perfect example) of a “need.” 

If my body “needs” something, then there is a definitive, measurable and repeatable negative physiological impact if I deprive my body of that “need” for a given period of time. 
That being said, I’d like to hear what the negative physiological impact is if I don’t get whole grains.
Anyone?
LIVE STRONG!!!
