Welcome to Episode 36 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring Sports Dietitian and research extraordinaire, Kelly Pritchett.
Kelly holds a PhD in Exercise Physiology, in addition to an undergraduate degree in Nutrition from The University of Alabama. She has been a practicing dietitian since 2005, and currently is a Professor of Nutrition and Exercise Science at Central Washington University (CWU). She also runs a nutrition and coaching company with her husband called TRIDimensional consulting, and is a mom to 3 young boys. I can only imagine how fun and crazy that must be!
Today’s topic is a bit of a mixed bag to cover multiple areas of Kelly’s research expertise. We discussed hydration and cooling, electrolytes, recovery nutrition, and some new vitamin D and iron research to supplement (pun intended) my last episode covering all things supplements!
Our discussion is very research focused and we get a bit technical at times, but we always translate things into practical applications for athletes. You should be able to take away some interesting info and apply to your own training and daily life, but of course if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email.
Thank you so much Kelly for sharing your time and knowledge! I hope you all enjoy our chat.
