In this episode of The Endurance Experience Podcast I speak with Dr. Margo Mountjoy, M.D., PhD. Dr. Mountjoy is a member of the International Olympic Committee Medical Commission Games Group. Their work went into the updated IOC Consensus statement that broadened the explanation of the Female Athlete Triad into what we know now to be RED-S and the performance and health implications for athletes. We have a discussion about the fallout of the Nike Oregon Project, Mary Cain's testimony in her New York Times Op Ed, and the health and performance implications of RED-S on athletes.
