You Are Not A Nutrition Robot with Maddi Osburn
Let's face it, navigating the world of nutrition is tough. When you factor in societal standards, diet culture, human nature and the dozens of other factors that play into our nutrition, it's no surprise that we are hyper focused on what goes into our mouths each day. This is no different for athletes who are often times torn between society and a diet that will fuel their energy needs. This week we meet with Maddi Osburn, a registered dietician nutritionist and the owner of Flexible Nutrition LLC, who focuses on sports nutrition and eating disorders. Is weight a good measurement for health, how important is limiting our calories, how to turn mac and cheese into a nutritious meal and more on this week's episode of Pretty Pitches.
