Trying out a new idea for a series on the podcast this week! Between school and just my nerdy interests, I read and synthesize a lot of scientific papers. So, if I find a paper that I find particularly interesting or of value and relevance to the podcast audience, I will dissect it on the show. One of the goals of this podcast is to create a more scientifically literate community so that we may wade through the murky and confusing waters of nutrition science.
First up is a review published in the journal Science written by renowned sports scientist Louise Burke. The paper, titled Swifter, higher, stronger: What’s on the menu? is a deep dive into the latest research as it relates to fueling the endurance athlete. She and her co-author John Hawley discuss carbohydrates vs. fat as fuel, supplements, relative energy deficiency in sport, and more. So I talk about it. Let me know what you think!
