Welcome to Episode 7 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring Registered Dietitian Lauren Antonucci. Today’s topic of fueling young athletes (i.e. through the collegiate level) is one that I am particularly excited about, as I love working with this client population, and as a parent myself, hope to raise my girls to enjoy physical activity as much as my husband and I do!
Lauren is the perfect person to talk about fueling young athletes, both from a personal and professional standpoint. She is a longtime runner and triathlete with thirteen marathons and three Ironman races under her belt, a Mom of three active children, and a sports dietitian who has extensive experience with both adults and younger clients (her additional specialties include diabetes and eating disorders, among others). Lauren is the director of Nutrition Energy, a Manhattan-based private practice where I have been freelancing for the past few years. If you need a dietitian for yourself or your child (especially while I’m on maternity leave), reach out to the office to work with Lauren or another RD on staff and please mention that you were referred from this episode.
Here are some of the things that we cover in our discussion:
