#284: Dietitian Discusses Nutrition for Runners

Sarah and co-host Adrienne Martini tuck in for a discussion about nutrition for runners with registered dietitian Jackie Dikos. As she does in her upcoming book, Finish Line Fueling: An Essential Guide to Runner’s Nutrition, Jackie offers advice for simplifying food and nutrition. In answering questions culled from mother runners, this dietitian talks about carbs to eat on a long run and great whole food choices after a workout. Find out her thoughts on Keto diets, as well as her recommendations for lean protein choices. She details the advantages of going through “windows of fasting” and gives suggestions for eating as you age (happens to the best of us!). Sarah gets Jackie to unpack her euphemism “healthy digestion.” At end of convo, Jackie talks about best supplements for runners.

Before being joined by the guest, Adrienne and Sarah talk about Halloween and a #motherruner gathering in NYC on Saturday, November 4. (Email for details: BAMR [at] anothermotherrunner [dot] com) The informative interview start at 20:40.

  1. Well-formulated ketogenic diets use moderate protein amounts. I must speak up because it is a common misconception that people who follow a ketogenic diet consume a lot of protein. Not so and for a very good reason. Too much protein can push people out of ketosis from gluconeogenesis. Animals have glycogen in their muscle tissue just like us humans. Our bodies don’t store protein. If we get too much, up goes blood sugar, down goes ketone production. If anyone is interested in learning more on keto for endurance athletes, I recommend the book “The Art and Science of Low-Carbohydrate Performance” by Dr. Stephen Phinney and Jeff Volek, Ph.D. Or take a peek at what Dr. Timothy Noakes has been doing the last 5-6 years.
