Description

Do you struggle with underfueling? Even unintentionally?

Or maybe you're tired of the hustle culture of endurance athletics and just want to be?

If this resonates, this episode is for you!

We talk with Leslie Schilling, MA, RDN, CSCS, CEDRD-S who is an expert in multiple areas, including sports nutrition, family nutrition, and eating disorders. Leslie sat down with us and shed light on how she helps athletes get back to a fed state so they can perform at their best. We also discussed her book, Born to Eat, and how that plays into being an athlete as well. 

We also discussed:

  • All things underfueling
  • How to spot underfueling
  • Why body image is so difficult for athletes
  • What else can athletes focus on aside from weight when training and performing?
  • And more!

Leslie is a fellow dietitian and wears many hats- she works with athletes, she writes, speaks, and has been featured in many publications like women’s health and the huffington post. Leslie is also the co-author of born to eat, which was a staple for both Sarah and me when we were introducing solids to our little ones. Leslie takes a weight neutral and non diet approach, and we talked about her work with performance athletes like the cirque de soleil athletes she works with and how she handles that. We really dove into under eating though and the detrimental affects that has across so many different facets of athlete’s lives.
