    After battling with weight loss and sleep issues, Alex discovered how to eat and train for PRs and enjoy new-found energy

    After battling with weight loss and sleep issues, Alex discovered how to eat and train for PRs and enjoy new-found energy

    Alex, one of my former clients, shares with you today how she improved her sleep and relationship with food and how she got stronger mentally and physically by doing less. Alex originally came to me with a weight loss goals just before the COVID quarantine and we discovered she had a negative relationship with food and exercise that prevented her from improving her lifts and losing fat. Today I am catching up with her, three months  after we concluded our work together.

    Besides sharing how she found her way to gym gains, restful sleep and peace with food, Alex also gives advice on how to get more protein on a vegan diet.

    This is a must-listen-to for active women!

    Relative Energy Deficicency in Male Athletes with Matt Bach

    Relative Energy Deficicency in Male Athletes with Matt Bach

    In this episode  I speak with triathlete Matt Bach on topic of relative energy deficiency.

    Relative Energy Deficiency is a topic that had not much attention until recently. It goes by shorthand REDs, and it is more discussed in context of female athletes as female athlete triad.

    Relative energy deficiency is a state when athlete does not fuel their body properly, knowingly or not. It is especially common among endurance and aesthetic athletes, and while research on this topic is pretty scarce, it also affects male athletes!

    Here are some of the symptoms of REDs. increased fatigue, decreased recovery and performance, muscle loss and resistance to fat loss and even fat gain, loss of periods and libido and possibly infertility, and from the long-term perspective bone density loss.

    Matt and I  discuss the red flags of Relative Energy Deficiency in male athletes as Matt Shares his story from finding out about it to how he overcame it. 

    Matt  Bach won Ironman Maryland in 2014 with a time of 8:51, was the top  amateur and 6th overall at Eagleman 70.3 in 2015, then 72nd overall in  Kona 2015. Matt has been using UCAN since 2014 – he had GI distress and  bonking issues prior to that, but UCAN helped him transform his approach  to triathlon nutrition. He is such a big believer that he now works for  the company as their Director for their Endurance Business. Matt worked  on Wall Street for 9 years prior to making this career change. He lives  in Summit, NJ with his wife, two kids (2 and 3 years old), and two  long-haired miniature dachshunds. He holds an MBA from Temple University and he loves a good cold beer.
