All too often fad diet messages skew our perception of what a healthy diet actually is, and how much energy the body actually requires when it comes to reaching our health and fitness goals. So today Sports Dietitian Alicia Edge from Compeat Nutrition and I are going to separate myth from fact and give you the lowdown on nutrition for performance, to help you thrive as you work towards your health, fitness or sports related goals. Topics we’ll be covering today include:

  • What is sports nutrition and who is it relevant for? (i.e. do you have to be an athlete to benefit?)
  • The most common pitfalls people fall into in terms of their diet when living an active lifestyle
  • Consequences of RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport) and how to combat this through adjustments in training and nutrition
  • Are supplements really necessary for performance and if so which ones?
  • Alicia’s top tips for pre and post workout nutrition
