For the distance runners and endurance sport athletes among you, I’ve just recorded a podcast interview with sports dietitian and exercise physiologist Gabrielle Maston on the latest science and my own experiences with nutrition in endurance running. In the podcast I cover taking on carbohydrate during sport, low-carb/high-fat diets (and the new concept of ‘train low, compete high’), protein needs for runners, and the latest on supplements (caffeine, beetroot juice and beta-alanine) and then finish up with my own pre-race tips. Many of the important things that the field of sports nutrition is all about. The interview starts at the 2 minute mark and runs to 22 minutes.
