Ep. 46: How to Eat Like an Athlete

Fueling your body as a competitive athlete can be much harder than it looks.  We often times see the biggest issue come up with under consuming and when that it happens it tends to be by a lot.  In this round table discussion we talk about the biggest issues we have seen with competitive athlete nutrition.  How do you know how many calories to consume on a daily basis?  Should it be a specific breakdown of macro-nutrients?

Dr. Jagim gives a full scale picture of what it takes to make sure you're at the top level of your nutrition to help with recovery and performance.
