    EP. 58: Adiposity, Health, GLP-1, Nutrition and Exercise w/Tanya Halliday, PhD, RD

    EP. 58: Adiposity, Health, GLP-1, Nutrition and Exercise w/Tanya Halliday, PhD, RD

    Tanya Halliday, PhD, RD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health, Kinesiology, and Recreation at the University of Utah. Her research focuses on appetite and food-intake regulation in response to lifestyle interventions such as dietary restriction and exercise. Currently, she is investigating how type of exercise (e.g., aerobic vs resistance) influences hormonal and behavior indices of appetite regulation, and mechanisms underlying response variation in body mass regulation with exercise. Another current area of research focus is on development of effective weight loss maintenance strategies. Dr. Halliday is also examining how sex as a biological variable, may influence the appetitive responses to energy deficits elicited through both increased exercise energy expenditure and caloric restriction.  

    She received her PhD in Clinical Physiology and Metabolism from Virginia Tech in 2016, where her research focused on exercise and dietary interventions for the prevention and treatment of obesity and related cardiometabolic conditions. She is also a Registered Dietitian, having completed her BS in Dietetics in 2010 at the University of Wyoming, and her Dietetic Internship through the University of Houston in 2011.  

    We have a conversation about the change in obesity rates over the last 50-60 years and what the current epidemiology states regarding the impact on populations and general health.  

    We discuss traditional energy balance teachings and whether a “calorie is a calorie” as it relates to weight loss.  

    Professor Halliday discusses GLP-1 medications, what problems they meant to solve and for which candidates and explains the side effects.  

    We talk about the efficacy of exercise for improved health and weight loss and whether wearable technology can assist health outcomes.

    EP. 55: Super Shoes, Marathon Record Performances and Training Strategies w/Andrew Jones, PhD

    EP. 55: Super Shoes, Marathon Record Performances and Training Strategies w/Andrew Jones, PhD

    Andrew M Jones PhD DSc is Professor of Applied Physiology in the Department of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter. He’s internationally recognized for his research in the control of, and limitations to, skeletal muscle oxidative metabolism; causes of exercise intolerance in health and disease; respiratory physiology, particularly the kinetics of pulmonary gas exchange and ventilation during and following exercise; and sports performance physiology and nutrition, particularly in relation to endurance athletics.

    Prof Jones has authored more than 350 original research and review articles (>38K citations) and is co-Editor of three books. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, the European College of Sport Science, and the Physiological Society. Jones is Editor-in-Chief of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise and serves on the Editorial Board of six other international journals in sports medicine and exercise science. Prof Jones has acted as a consultant to a number of governing bodies of sport or commercial companies including UK Athletics, the English Institute of Sport, Gatorade Sports Science Institute and Nike Inc.

    He's been an advisor and consultant to the Breaking 2 and INEOS projects with Eluid Kipchoge and professional endurance athletes including Paula Radcliff.

    Professor Jones gives his understanding of the evidence of the performance effect of the so called “super shoes” and whether they explain the recent pro marathon runner excess performance and if so, by how much.

    Amateur marathon runners may find interesting our exchange about the Boston Marathon and how it is getting harder to get into, and what amateur marathoners must do to enhance performance in order to qualify and get into the Boston Marathon today. Professor Jones gives his perspective on the popularized notion that when it comes to marathon training “volume is king” and if not, what would be the alternative.

    We talk about distance runners that are getting older, and how Professor Jones recommends changing training, if at all, for those looking to remain competitive. Finally, we talk about science and evidence-based nutrition protocol throughout the training cycle and pre-race and race nutrition.

    EP. 53: The Fate of Modern Pentathlon w/Coach Kate Allenby

    Kate Allenby is a former British modern pentathlete, she won bronze for Team GB at the Sydney Olympics. She represents Pentathlon United an independent athlete representative body, representing thousands of pentathletes worldwide. Kate stands in opposition to the decision to only test OCR [obstacle course racing] and not any of the other apparent 60 options they considered in the teeth of an impending decision by the IOC to decide in regards to the future of Modern Pentathlon in future Olympic games. We have a conversation about her background and how she got into Modern Pentathlon as a youth, to her experience winning a bronze medal at the Sydney Olympics.

    We spend the lion share of the conversation discussing the decision by the governing body, the UIPM, to replace equestrianism with an obstacle course racing discipline. She gives her perspective on the infamous “Tokyo Incident” from the last Olympics that made news.

    Kate gives her perspective on what might become of the sport and the athletes in the sport given the changes, and what athletes can do if they wish to get involved in Modern Pentathlon.
