    In this episode, I deep dive into the topic of stubborn body fat that frustrates athletes of all levels and sports. Athletes very often are focused on staying lean or getting lean - this leads to an overemphasis on body fat levels.
    As a Sports Dietitian, I see time and time and again how athletes will be so frustrated when they can’t seem to get rid of a specific area of body fat or go beyond a level of leanness they have already achieved. 
    So what is the deal with stubborn body fat?

    And if so, how do you do it?!

    So if you are an active person who is struggling to lose “stubborn body fat” or are frustrated that you can’t seem to get leaner, then this episode is a must-listen!
    I will reveal the blunt truth and also hopefully change your perspective so that you develop a HEALTHIER relationship with your results and importantly your physique!

    Episode #103: Beetroot Juice - New Sports Supplement Discovery Or Another Fallacy?

    Episode #103: Beetroot Juice - New Sports Supplement Discovery Or Another Fallacy?

    In this episode, I deep dive into the latest sports supplement that has been trending in popularity - beetroot juice/beetroot extract. There has been a lot of hype about beetroot juice in recent times with many proposing it as the next great supplement in the sports performance space. 
    Athletes are always looking at the next thing to take their performance to the next level. That is why supplements are so popular as they are marketed as performance enhancers.
    However, many supplements are simply not as good as they seem OR they simply do not work and are B.S. Then there is a small group of supplements that truly help or have promise.
    That is why I wanted to chat about beet juice as it’s the latest supplement that has been touted as beneficial for the athlete. So is this true or untrue? Is beet juice underrated or overrated?
    In today’s podcast, I will cover:
    What is beetroot juice? (and why is it suggested as the next hot supplement)The science behind beet juice and performance (what is the justification?) Should you consider taking beet juice as an athlete?Beet juice dosing explained Listen to the full episode to learn the truth and get a deeper understanding of beetroot juice/extract.
