On today’s episode I am joined by Renee McGregor. Renee is a leading sports dietitian, specialising in eating disorders, REDs, the female athlete, and performance. Her practice and knowledge are supported by extensive experience of working in both clinical and performance nutrition, including Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth teams. She is also a best-selling author and the co-founder and director of #TRAINBRAVE a campaign raising the awareness of eating disorders in sport; providing resources and practical strategies to reduce the prevalence.

Whilst there is an abundance of information on sports nutrition out there, not all said information is relevant to the female athlete. Which is why this podcast episode is here to bring an awareness to female-specific nutrition as we discuss fuelling the female athlete and  REDs – relative energy deficiency in sport – including what it is, what the signs and symptoms include and how as a female athlete (or coach) you can best support yourself.
