In our first conversation with Scott Tindal, sports nutritionist and founder of the Fuelin program,  we take a deep dive into race nutrition and fueling, covering everything from carb amounts for racing and training to sweat testing and sodium intake. Toward the end, we start to get into body image and the female athlete, which is where we intend to begin the next time we talk to Scott.  Some highlights:

  • Scott's background
  • Fuelin’s approach to nutrition and athletes 
  • Carbs and athletes 
  • Planning nutrition for training sessions
  • Using carbs in training and racing and training your gut 
  • Fueling on the bike vs. the run 
  • Possible issues with carbs in the bottle
  • Sweat rate and hydration
  • Salt intake and importance of monitoring how little/how much
  • What the Fuelin program can do for athletes 
  • Female athletes and weight gain issues
