    Episode 152: Research on Eating Disorders in Sport and Athletes with Dr. Paula Quatromoni

    Episode 152: Research on Eating Disorders in Sport and Athletes with Dr. Paula Quatromoni

    Dr. Paula Quatromoni is an Associate Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Boston University and Chair of the Department of Health Sciences. She is a Registered Dietitian, a senior consultant for Walden Behavioral Care, and one of the leading experts on eating disorders in athletes. Dr. Quatromoni's research includes a focus on eating disorder prevention and treatment. She has published several papers featuring both clinical care and qualitative research on recovery experiences of athletes. In 2004, she pioneered the sports nutrition consult service for student-athletes at Boston University. In 2016, she led the creation of the Walden GOALS program, an intensive outpatient program treating competitive athletes with eating disorders. Dr. Quatromoni earned her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Nutrition from the University of Maine and her Doctorate in Epidemiology from the Boston University School of Public Health.

    Questions we ask Paul include:

    How did you get into the field of nutrition? What inspired your research with student athletes?

    How has COVID impacted your work and nutrition for individuals, communities, and/or athletes specifically?

    Where do you see gaps in sports nutrition education, research, and/or dissemination?

    In 2017, you were the PI on a research publication titled, “A Tale of Two Runners: A Case Report of Athletes’ Experiences with Eating Disorders in College.” This publication shared the story of two elite athletes, recruited to the same Division I institution track and field program. However, one athlete was a male and the other was a female.

    Can you share with us some of the differences that the student-athletes experienced in their experiences with their eating disorders due to gender differences?

    When it comes to RED-S and/or eating disorders in sport, what are some red flags you encourage coaches, parents, and/or athletes to look for?

    You contributed to a post titled, “3 Ways Coaches Can Help Prevent Eating Disorders in Athletes” on Running in Silence, a platform created by Rachael Steil. What are a few ways you see coaches and/or parents play a key role in preventing and addressing eating disorders?

    Episode 149: Jessica Rodarte on Mental Health Advocacy, Marathoning, and Running for a Reason

    Episode 149: Jessica Rodarte on Mental Health Advocacy, Marathoning, and Running for a Reason

    Jessica Rodarte was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Her running journey started at the age of 5 when her parents signed her up for track and field. Running has always been a big part of her life. Her love for running has grown throughout the years and has led her to become a marathoner. Jessica signed up for her first marathon in 2015 which was the 30th Los Angeles Marathon. Since then she has run 5 marathons and 8 half marathons, and she has only just begun. In 2016, Jessica was diagnosed with major depression and anxiety. During those very dark days, running saved her life. Jessica has become a mental health advocate. She has been able to share her battle with depression and anxiety, as well as her love for running with people all over the world. She hopes that by sharing her story with people, it will inspire others to do the same.

    Episode 148: Kristin LaFontaine on RED-S, Diet Culture, & Nutrition Education For Runners

    Episode 148: Kristin LaFontaine on RED-S, Diet Culture, & Nutrition Education For Runners

    In this episode, we dive into RED-S and nutrition for runners, including the rundown on RED-S and how fueling properly can help prevent and/or address it. We also discuss Kristin's running background, as well as her business and how she helps educate runners on fueling to perform well and empower their bodies for sport.

    Kristin LaFontaine is a health educator, nutrition coach, mama to a 15 month old son, and former collegiate distance runner turned marathoner. When Kristin looks back at the years she spent competing in both cross country and track in high school and college, she realizes that her relationship with food wasn't always healthy. Food was something to be earned, something to be burned off. She was limiting intake of certain foods or food groups was a misguided attempt to improve performance and achieve a certain body type. She often wonders why/how she developed such a disordered, unhealthy relationship with food. She realizes now that part of it was real or imagined external pressure to look a certain way, but part of it was that she just didn’t know better. When she was a teenager, no one taught her about nutrition. No one taught her how to properly fuel her body. Frankly, she didn’t know what she was doing. That gap in nutrition education still exists and Kristin is determined to fill that gap. In 2018, she quit her corporate marketing job, went back to school, and earned her Master of Science in Nutrition Education degree from American University. 

    From there, the Nourished Performance Program was born. Nourished Performance is a 100% online, video based nutrition education program designed to give young female athletes access to basic sports nutrition information. She hopes this program will find its way into the hands of as many young athletes as possible so that they are empowered to take control of their health and performance and understand how to properly fuel their bodies for sport. As a now 30-something, 20-time marathoner including one year of running one marathon every month, Kristin has seen first hand how vital proper fueling is to success.

    Questions we cover with Kristin include:


    How did you get started in running/athletics?

    Journey into collegiate running - overall experience, burned out, under-fueled?

    20-time marathoner -- including a whole year with a marathon each month! Tell us more about that!

    RED-S -- big topic of discussion.

    You write that “Food was something to be earned, something to be burned off. She was limiting intake of certain foods or food groups was a misguided attempt to improve performance and achieve a certain body type.” What do you think contributed to this?

    How do social media and societal norms play a role in fueling decisions, food restrictions… and how is "diet culture" particularly detrimental for runners?

    Nutrition education -- what is lacking in schools, what can be done?

    The role you play in nutrition education and working with athletes;

    “Education can make all the difference.”
