His interest in nutrition began in 1972 when, during a military tour in Japan, he began to practice yoga and meditation using the books of Richard Hittleman. He began to re-examine his eating and lifestyle patterns, eventually stopping smoking, and is becoming a lacto-vegetarian who strives to practice yoga, taichi, and meditation daily. This was quite a switch for a Texas boy who grew up thinking the best food in the world was a chicken-fried steak with lots of creamy gravy and greasy french fries.
Ballard envisions Women's Sports Nutrition
as an opportunity to help promote targeted nutrition and a healthy lifestyle
to people all over the world, especially sports-minded women who are proactive
in building their health.
