You asked, and finally received - it only took me 8 episodes, but I finally got around to doing an Ask Me Anything show to answer your burning nutrition questions! At the time of recording (and of writing these show notes), I am almost 39 weeks pregnant and trying to take my mind off of playing the waiting game (i.e. simultaneous desires to get this baby outta me right now, and also - but wait stay in, I need more time, I'm not ready yet!), so thank you listeners for the distraction.
This will be an ongoing series - essentially, whenever I have 20-30 minutes available to sit down and record my thoughts on what you send through, so please email me anytime with your questions. And when I say anything, I mean it (okay, within reason guys)! I assume you mostly want to ask about nutrition, but if you'd like to ask me about - for example - my experiences staying active during pregnancy, or what I feed my daughter, or my past or future race experiences, or whatever else is on your mind, go for it. I do eventually plan on recording an athlete nutrition profile of myself FYI so that you can get to know my athletic and nutrition background (why not right?) - so look out for that in the future. If I ever get to sit down and record again with an infant haha!
Here are a few of the topics that we cover in this episode:
Managing "hanger" post workout and especially during higher volumes of trainingRecommendations for protein powders and barsMacro-counting - yay or nay? Ironman (or more generally, endurance) nutrition - training the gut, how many calories we can absorb, eating real food, and moreGiving your stomach (and brain!) a chance to register what you have eaten before going back for secondsEating three bigger meals plus snacks versus smaller, more frequent mealsThanks again for your questions! And remember, the best nutrition advice is individualized, so don't hesitate to reach out to me (or another) RD if you feel you need more assistance!
