What an excellent Podcast

I wish I could get the master’s degree you have the training for, but, I feel like I’ve gotten close to it by listening to ALL of your episodes multiple times…

This is a GREAT resource - an invaluable vault of information to have at your fingertips.

Great learning to be had.

Sport nutrition/physiology explained

Very captivating and informative podcast. The host, Dr. Laurent Bannock and his guest speakers do a great job of putting into context (which he loves to say, lol) the science behind sport nutrition applied to both amateur and professional athletes.
