    EP 55. Athlete comfort w Jono Stedman (sports dietitian)
     
    The effect of comfort on sports performance is of logical significance. 
     
    Often the pursuit of comfort can override what’s considered to be ‘optimal’, or what the sports nutrition textbook or research paper said.
     
    Trying to apply sports nutrition strategies ‘by the book’, being an evidence-based warrior who can’t critically think and expecting it to stick is often either a losing battle or simply not worthwhile in practice. 
     
    In episode 55 of the Macabolic podcast, I was lucky enough to be joined by Sports dietitian Jono Steedman to discuss the science to practice side of coaching an athlete or sports enthusiast. We talk about stimulants, considering risk v reward of supplements, and some of the things about ‘nutrition coaching’ that can only really be learned in the real world working with real people.

    Episode summary

    Why fat loss to improve body comp is beneficial for sport and athletes
    -relative strength (power to weight ratio), sprinting, CrossFit
    -more of what does work, less of what weighs you down.
    -weight class sports - what about 'weight moves weight'?
    -appearance - it matters. 

    1. Headspace
    Don't let it get to your head. 
    "I'm in a Calorie deficit, therefore I'll lose strength"... Will you really though? 
     Don't do dumb diet shit', and you'll be fine.   
     
    2. Lifestyle & stress management
    Manage your stress bank account  
    -Spend well - training & life stress - seek efficiency with how you spend your 'stress money'
    -Save well - sleep & leisure/downtime- deposit into your 'stress account' often. - basics & sleep hygiene. Do something that you can relax with, it's easy on the mind & body

    3. The actual diet
    Eat enough - hit the sweet spot, only go as low as you need. 
    Avoid LEA - implications on health and performance can be serious. 
    Importance of planning and timing. 
    A more conservative Calorie reduction with a slower rate of fat loss might be a better idea. 
    Eat enough protein to maintain 'muscle that does work'.  - Total protein, & protein frequency & distribution. 
    Ensure sufficient food quality - whole food quantity & diversity, 400g+ veg, 300g+ fruit, a logical portion of whole grains and mostly unsaturated fats (mono & poly) provide examples. 

    4. Adding in 'hacks'
    Carb timing - Bolus pre-exercise, consider timing, food selection and comfort. 
    Caffeine - Higher doses when you need it, 3-6mg per kilo, consider comfort, provide examples. habitual for training blocks. 
    Use the CHO rinsing & the placebo of the sweet taste. Diet Cordial 'fake BCAA mix'. 
    Won't cause harm, so if it makes you feel good, it might be a placebo hack that's worth it.

    Ep 51. Simplifying nutrition with team FNC

    Whatever goal you have, in terms of nutrition, once you peel it back there are some common and goal-specific principals and 'things' that need to be in place rather consistently for you to progress. 

    In episode 51 of the Macabolic Podcast, I'm joined by all 4 of the Fortitude Nutrition coaches.

    If you're sick of the fluff and want someone to give you an overview of the things that are relevant to your goal. This episode is for you. 

    We start with common traits, then delve into specific traits of fat loss, muscle growth and sports performance.
