If you’re an active woman of any age, this episode with respected exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy Sims, Ph.D., is an enlightening must-listen! Hosts Sarah and Ellison welcome Stacy to talk about many of the topics covered in her book ROAR: How to Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Female Physiology for Optimum Performance, Great Health, and a Strong, Lean Body for Life, including:

-why women runners need to stop eating and training like men;
-why “one size fits all” should not be anyone’s guide to weight management;
-how to properly fuel for a workout (+ post-exercise);

-the powerful effect of female hormones; and,
-hacks for preventing menstrual cramps; GI distress during a run; and aiding sleep.

Before Dr. Stacy Sims joins around 21:33, Ellison and Sarah discuss these two books: Victoria: the Queen by Julia Baird and Framed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

This repeat episode originally ran in January 2017.
